Want to wear your managalsutra differently? Then check out Aldora’s gorgeous new collection where beads take centrestage in matchless styles be it necklaces, rings or bracelets…
Sonam Kapoor is the quintessential style icon who is always giving us style goals to reach, be it her inimitable silhouettes or over-the-top jewellery. The one trend that she introduced after walking the aisle was that of wearing the mangalsutra on her hand as a bracelet instead of her neck. We did swoon over the add-ons dangling from the bracelet, the solitaire and the teeny-weeny charms. Women in India wear the mangalsutra, a unison of mangal (meaning auspicious) and sutra (meaning thread) – depicting an opportune thread uniting the souls. While the necklace has seen many design changes, the new beads on the block have been done up in attractive designs.
Trust brand Aldora and their sub-brands, Fio and Shom to give your bridal repertoire, designs that are contemporary and still embrace the auspiciousness of the black beads. In their recent collections, for neckpieces, the sizes have been shrunk and given newer motifs. If you have been frowning that the mangalsutra doesn’t go well with work wear; then these would surely change your mind.
What if you want to go the Sonam way? Be ready to go on a black beaded bracelet ride. The marriage of these black beads with Swarovski charms ring in a scintillating sense of fashion. These stunning black beads with hanging motifs are the perfect arm candies that you want to flaunt as a bride. A great idea to gift your friends who are tying the nuptial not.
Don’t stop hitherto. There’s an eclectic range of finger rings too, if you want to go totally minimal on the mangalsutra. Picture a jewelled butterfly with a beaded thorax. It’s sassy to the T and yet spells traditional. Take your pick from traditional, geometric and floral patterns, be the rings, bracelet or your good old mangalsutra neckpiece. They are all enviable!
