10 offbeat mangalsutra designs for the new-age bride!

Managalsutra or auspicious thread is a symbol of marital status for Hindu brides. Usually a mangalsutra is made up by stringing nine black beads and nine gold beads. It is an ornament which the groom puts around the bride’s neck during the wedding ceremony. New-age brides aren’t looking at a mangalsutra only as an auspicious ornament anymore, it much more! It has become a statement jewellery and something that can be flaunted, on the D-day and thereafter!

 

Mangalsutras are getting styled and customized like never before. From sophisticated designs including diamonds to dramatic, oversized traditional ones, a bride has a wide array of designs to choose from. While I was browsing through the internet, I noticed that there are oodles of mangalsutra varieties, in different sizes, lengths and styles.

 

Here’s me listing the most unconventional mangalsutra designs I came across, for the quintessential new-age brides:

 

1. The mangalsutra with the paisley design!
