Jewellery by Mangatrai, Hyderabad
Precious gemstones shine big and bright in this Polki choker by jeweller Mangatrai Panjagutta that newly-wed actress Niharika Konidela wore for a pre bridal shoot. Rubies in deep red encrusted on the piece in bold sizes work magic with the festooning of bright green emeralds, making the piece absolutely irresistible. Niharika completes the look with a sleek yet stellar matha-patti and bejewelled nathni and bangles.

Newly-wed Niharika Konidela shows us how to ditch the traditional maangtika and instead flaunt an exotic matha-patti matching the neckpiece. We simply adore this ingenious styling where a matching earrings is gracefully substituted for a matha-patti set exuding major millennial bride vibes. The bead drops interspersed with polki layering in the design adds an extra flair to the uber-chic look.

Jewellery by Vasundra Diamond Roof, Hyderabad
The revelries began with a glamorous Sangeet brimming with dreamy decor, dazzling performances, and gleaming faces. For the high on drama Sangeet night Niharika immaculately styled a deep teal couture piece by Shantanu and Nikhil with a slick diamond choker encrusted with bold deep-red rubies by Vasundra Diamond Roof. The decadent rubies finely ensconced on a snug diamond silhouette work magic with the teal gown, adding depth to the whole winter wedding mood.
Pink enameled jewels lend Niharika’s look a pastel fresh vibe for the sundowner Mehndi
Niharika channeled the pastel princess vibe the next day for a vibrant sundowner Mehndi. The diva worked a light-pink enameled choker set with an ensemble that was a riot of vibrant colours. The look is something that we call pastel fresh, perfect for a sundowner event like this one. The light-hued bead drops interspersed with polki layering in the design adds finesse to the uber-chic look.
Niharika Konidela repurposed and nailed her mother’s 32-year-old wedding look with a cinch of gold waistband
Niharika Konidela was all about experimenting and acing an ensemble of different looks at her wedding. The Telugu actor for one of her pre-wedding festivities repurposed her mother’s 32-year-old wedding look and wore an old blue Banarasi saree with striking traditional jewellery. What stood out in her look was that she ditched the elaborate cummerbund and opted for an intricately done gold waistband to cinch her saree. We are sure a lot of millennial brides will follow suit!
The Haldi was followed by the wedding ceremony later the same evening. Niharika made for the quintessential South Indian bride shining through in aesthetically put together traditional yellow gold jewellery. The rich jewellery ensemble comprised of the proverbial coin necklace layered with a nuanced temple jewellery set and maangtika.
Niharika Konidela dipped in gold with statement bib necklace by Mangatrai Neeraj
What’s better than sporting one statement necklace? Well, it’s sporting two statement necklaces. And which is what Niharika Konidela did for her wedding look. The newly-minted bride worked a panch-lada polki haar with a statement bib necklace with emerald danglers and a ruby center-piece. She complimented her magnificently crafted gold kanjeevaram look with a matching chandbalis and an elaborate Matha Patti.
Niharika Konidela’s over-sized layered emerald polki necklace set is a maximalist lover’s dream
Niharika Konidela donned some serious shine for her reception look with a
rather extravagant traditional multilayer polki and emerald necklace set.
The imposing sizes of the polki diamonds paired with unique and eye catching
light hued emerald drops give the ornate look an extraordinarily stylish
vibe. Although the matching emerald drops bring a coordinated look, a hint
of those oversized polkis in the maang-tikka would have increased the
grandeur of her look manifolds.
