When you hear the word “Mangalsutra”, the first image your mind conjures up is probably the old-fashioned beaded iteration with a clunky 24 Karat gold pendant in the middle. After all, that’s the version that has been etched onto our memories for as long as we can remember.

The Indian bridal staple temporarily went out of style a while ago but recently it has been experiencing a resurgence of sorts—fuelled by It girls like Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma, and above everyone, Priyanka Chopra Jonas, who took her love for the Mangalsutra to the next level with an exclusive collaboration with the luxury brand Bvlgari.


The elegant piece features a black onyx beaded chain and a central diamond pendant surrounded by smaller discs of black onyx, encased in the Bvlgari logo gold circles—a perfect fit for the modern Indian bride.

Inspired by Priyanka’s A-list collaboration, we’ve curated a list of other contemporary versions of the Mangalsutra that are equal parts chic and effortlessly wearable. Let’s have a look at them.
