Well, well! In a country, as obsessed with Bollywood and celebrities as ours, it is just good measure to bring in some good ol’ inspiration from the stars themselves. Last year, three of our most gorgeous B-Town divas tied the knot and their Mangalsutras designs were out of this world.

1. Deepika Padukone

Just like her personality, Deepika Padukone’s Mangalsutra design was nothing but elegance personified. A very simple yet stunning design with a Solitaire resting between a tiny chain of black beads, Deepika’s Mangalsutra was a treat to the eyes. If you are a bride who plans on wearing her Mangalsutra a lot, this is definitely something to be inspired by.

2. Sonam Kapoor

Sonam Kapoor is the undisputed fashionista of Bollywood who is known for her offbeat and quirky style. The diva incorporated her quirk into her Mangalsutra too, when she got a customized Mangalsutra made with her and her husband Anand Ahuja’s Zodiac symbols. If you want to do something special with your Mangalsutra design too, then personalization is the way to go.

3. Priyanka Chopra

A heart-shaped ring with a diamond is a classic wedding ring design. Top it up with the traditional black beads and that's a keeper that most new brides-to-be would love to invest on. Such a design works well with office wear, fusion styles as well as an evening dress, without missing a beat. Nab such a ring Mangalsutra straight from PC Jewellers.

2. Encircled with love


Using the Mangalsutra beads as outer accents for your wearing pleasure, these type of rings work as Mangalsutra designs, doubling up quirky statement rings and holding solid rocks. The floral diamond set on one and the pear-shaped stone on the other are classic designs when it comes to ring settings. The thin bands mean that you can use them as your wedding rings as well - capturing both Indian and western wedding traditions together in one swoop.

3. Entwined hearts

Simple minimalist designs on your mind? Then, this is the kind of ring Mangalsutra designs that you need to consider.

Get your attitude on-point with such a dramatic ring Mangalsutra and that too on an index finger. Be the boss woman with double beaded bands around a delicate set of diamond leaves at their centre.
