Choosing gemstone kamar band follow some simple tips-
1) Do not go in for heavy stones and many colored gemstones while you are on the heavier side on waist and hips. Select simple semi precious gemstones first and then go in for multi colored stones in designs of your ornaments as they must not clash with your heavy dress , saree or any outfit.
2) Choose a simple sleek  kamar band or go in for half side kamar band. Chains, beaded or single line metal kamar band goes well for heavy waist line and thicker broad patterns, multi chains,  in kamar band can go well for the beautiful slim curvaceous curves.
3) If you have never worn a kamar band go in for cheaper one first instead of investing in costly gold or silver metal kamar band as this piece of jewellery is not comfortable for everyone.
4) Wear light weight metal kamar band as you do not want to increase your weight look. Silver goes off well as compared to gold for heavier bulk on waist. Always select sleek designs for the graceful look.
5) If you have a handed over heavy work kamar band with many colored gemstones and beads and multi layered  then  go in for plain silks or dresses that will highlight this beautiful piece of jewellery.
6) When you also wish to wear the key chain made of metal try to secure the kamar band well with your saree as the weight of the band is quite some and along with the keychain and keys it become more.
