THE MINDY PROJECT: A JEWELRY LOVER’S DREAM
If you haven’t started watching The Mindy Project yet, you should –and not just because of the hilarious storylines. The jewelry in this show is fun, sexy, and appeals to the inner fashionista in all of us. Mindy Kaling’s caricature of the average American woman is both hilarious and inspiring, and she manages to be both tragic and heroic while wearing some fantastic designer jewelry pieces. There are several characters beside Mindy Lahiri (played by Mindy Kaling) that serve as jewelry fashion emblems.
Mindy Lahiri is a more practical version of Carrie Bradshaw. She wears designer jewelry that you yourself might be hesitant to wear, but that’s not so outlandish you wouldn’t believe you might run into somebody wearing it in your daily life. Large colored gemstones are a favorite for Dr. Lahiri. The range in ring designs varies from the New York sophisticate wearing a platinum band, princess cut yellow gemstone to the average gal out on the town while sporting over-sized dangling heart earrings.
Ladies preferring something a little more reserved can look to Mindy’s receptionist Betsy, played by Zoe Jarman. Betsy’s wholesome Midwestern style is perfect for those looking for a little dazzle in their designer jewelry choices—though in a more subtle way. Women interested in emulating Betsy’s style might aim for demure diamond solitaire earrings, a diamond solitaire necklace, or a classic diamond engagement ring. Betsy’s style is classic and stylish, perfect for someone looking to add a little pizzazz to their fashion repertoire without risking too much. Betsy’s style blends in seamlessly whether you’re out with the church crowd on Sundays or out to dinner with friends for Thursday cocktails.
Gwen, Mindy’s best friend and happy housewife played by Anna Camp, is the quintessential example of a contemporary twist on classic elegance. She is most often decked out in diamonds—such as her unique diamond engagement ring—but she also pairs colored gemstone necklaces with her gorgeous ring. Gwen’s look is perfect for any woman interested in creating a sophisticated, yet sexy fashion persona.
