A mangalsutra is very important for the Hindu culture. It is not just a jewellery piece but holds an important meaning. People who wear their mangalsutra all the time like to keep it simple, or wear something different. The market for funky mangalsutras is growing by the day and our celebrities are the best example here. Here are some designs are worn by our latest brides and actresses that might inspire your collection.
Sonam Kapoor Ahuja
Sonam Kapoor's marriage to Anand Ahuja was an extravagant affair. Their wedding reception had all the Bollywood biggies. Known for her fashion sense, Sonam chose a gorgeous and thoughtful mangalsutra, which she apparently designed herself. Her mangalsutra has her and Anand’s sun signs along with a solitaire in the middle.
Deepika and Ranveer's wedding was a talk of the town and the couple gave major goals to newlyweds. From their wedding venue to the reception to their outfits, everything was beautiful. Deepika picked up a simple solitaire which is neither very showy nor too basic either. A simple jewel can talk volumes.
Her wedding to the American singer and actor Nick Jonas had the world waiting and we could not keep calm after knowing the venue where it was held. Besides the extravagant events, her outfits, the guest list was what impressed everyone. It even had the Game of Thrones actress Sophie Turner attend the wedding, who happens to be her would-be sister-in-law. Now the mangalsutra Priyanka got for herself is solitaires as well but have you seen the size? The thread is rather simple but the drop is exquisite!
Sagarika and cricketer Zaheer Khan’s wedding was a simple court-marriage where Sagarika wore a gorgeous red saree by the ace fashion designer Sabyasachi Mukherjee. Need we say more? Her mangalsutra is a stylish and elegant piece with a lot of big diamonds. It actually looks like a butterfly.
Aashka Goradia married her foreigner man in style. Along with her choice of groom, Aashka’s mangalsutra is unconventional and pretty too. She got her mangalsutra designed by ORRA. The centerpiece has ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’ written on it in Hindi. You might not have even thought of it but how about now?
Actors Sanaya Irani and Mohit Sehgal make a very cute and bubbly couple. Their beach wedding was a dreamy affair and was attended by friends and families. Clad in a beautiful ivory lehenga, Sanaya's mangalsutra has three gold beads attached together.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan’s wedding remained the talk of the town for years with top-notch security and people hardly got a glimpse of their wedding pictures. She wore a Neeta Lulla's kanjeevaram saree worth 75 lakh and the mangalsutra that she wears is worth 45 lakhs.
Suyyash and Kishwer’s wedding gave us serious goals. The couple posted images of their wedding constantly through social media. Her mangalsutra is V-shaped which is perfect for the modern bride.
Her wedding was phenomenal with fans going nuts by looking at her wedding pictures. She wears a very traditional mangalsutra but it is actually contemporary in nature. It has a diamond jali design with a diamond-drop at the end.
