5 Unique Mangalsutras to Replace the Traditional Black Gold Style

The word comes from two Sanskrit words – mangala meaning holy, auspicious and sutra meaning thread. It symbolises that they will be mates for life until death separates them. As told by religious customs and social expectations, married women should wear mangalsutra throughout their life as it is believed that the practice enhances the well-being of her husband.

Generally, the colour of the mangalsutra comprises a gold chain strung with black beads. Nowadays, brides are opting to personalise the jewellery to include elements that are centered around the couple. Some brides even choose to include other colours in the mix. Check out 5 such mangalsutras where brides chose to do something different with their bridal jewellery piece: 

1. Known as the Royal Bengal Mangalsutra, this piece of Sabyasachi jewellery has brilliant cut diamonds, rose cut diamond, Zambian emeralds and rubies. Quite a regal choice for a mangalsutra!

3. Sonam Kapoor Ahuja personalised her mangalsutra by adding hers and her beau, Anand Ahuja’s star sign on the mangalsutra. The mangalsutra doubles up as a bracelet!

4. Skip the concept of tying the mangalsutra around the neck – get the ring! It is definitely more stylish and modern that a millennial couple will love to consider.

5. If you want to stay completely away from black, go for a combination of rubies and pearls to be strung on your gold chain.

Did these mangalsutras inspire you to do something different with yours too?
