simple mangalsutra designs

In this post, I’ll share with you 31 simple diamond mangalsutra designs that you’ll absolutely love.

These days brides choose modern mangalsutras that are a bit more simple and delicate to wear on daily basis.

Who wants to wear a really heavy traditional mangalsutra in modern times?

You may have noticed that brides no longer wear their traditional elaborate mangalsutra since it doesn’t suit on work or casual outfits. Thus, the mangalsutra ends up in the bank safe and only to be worn during traditional Indian festivals or weddings.

Although every culture has different mangalsutra requirements, brides these days are more open to mangalsutras that are actually wearable and go well with western outfits. In the end, a mangalsutra has no meaning if it’s not worn.

In this article, I will share with you very unique designs that I’ve created that are simple and sophisticated to be worn every day.

Are you ready for an exclusive collection of simple mangalsutra designs that you won’t find anywhere else?

1. Kohinoor Diamond Mangalsutra

As a child, I was always fascinated by queens and princesses. Their outfits and jewels were mesmerizing.

These fond childhood memories led me to design the Kohinoor diamond mangalsutra. This perennial piece stands for simplicity and royalty.

The center of the Kohinoor mangalsutra pendant is made of moissanite. Moissanite is a synthetic mineral that the look and feel of a diamond.

You can opt for a 1.0-carat center diamond instead of a moissanite.

But moissanite center stone is a cost-effective way to get the same look without breaking the bank.

Simple Solitaire Mangalsutra

The pendant comes with a simple white gold chain with black beads. Kohinoor is a beautiful, simple mangalsutra choice if you’re planning to wear the piece daily to work or in a casual setting.

2. Peony Diamond Mangalsutra

Speaking of delicate and feminine mangalsutra that goes well in the modern times, this simple mangalsutra is an exceptional choice.

The special Peony diamond mangalsutra gives us a boho vibe.

It consists of a simple yellow gold chain with black beads and gold beads arranged alternately in a beautiful way.

You don’t have to have black beads all the way throughout the chain.

We can also be creative with the position of black beads based on your preferences and style.

3. Tassel Long Chain Mangalsutra

These days there is a trend for women to wear a long 36” chain mangalsutra that is modern, simple and delicate.

Traditional mangalsutras with longer chains can be uncomfortable to wear and feel out of place with western outfits.

The design of a Tassel long chain mangalsutra was born from a long chain custom mangalsutra request from one of my clients. As the design has been so popular, we decided to add it to our portfolio.

This designer mangalsutra has a long tassel necklace made of 18K antique finish gold chain. There are a few black beads in the front to accentuate the tassel.

Since I can’t live without sparkle, I added some diamond balls in a “polka dot” fashion.

This addition gives the mangalsutra a subtle sparkle and shine.

This a wonderful style if you like to wear your mangalsutra every day at work or for leisure.

4. Moonshine Diamond Mangalsutra

This is designed keeping in mind a beautiful lady who simply loves solitaries.

The beauty of this piece comes from the pressure-setting technique that fuses marquise and princess shaped diamonds to give a solitaire-like look.

You can get 5 solitaire-look diamonds for a fraction of the cost without compromising the beauty and look.

This is a  timeless design for any age group. Simple and elegant.

I’ve seen many Bollywood celebrities like Aishwarya Rai and Shilpa Shetty flaunting similar style mangalsutra.

5. Trance Diamond Mangalsutra

The next mangalsutra, Trance, was also a custom piece designed for one of my brides. She wanted something extremely unique and different.

She also had an existing wedding ring with pear-shaped diamonds.

Her desire was to have her mangalsutra to match her ring.

So she asked us to make the magic happen for her dream mangalsutra.

In order to match her mangalsutra with the ring, we used fancy cut diamonds in an arc form, as she really loved the arc shape.

To add a bit more thrill to her mangalsutra, we added a few black beads in the front, on both sides of the pendant.

This is one of my favorite designs as it very new, novel and interesting.

This one mixes elements from three different mangalsutras – Jasmine Mangalsutra, Modern Mangalsutra and Crescent Mangalsutra.

She wanted a dainty mangalsutra.

Vivek liked the winged shaped mangalsutra with a light pattern that you can see below.

It’s lovely, simple and elegant.

Here’s a mangalsutra tip that Divyanka shared about choosing a perfect mangalsutra, “There are tons of mangalsutra designs available online.

Since mangalsutra is an Indian piece of jewelry for traditional outfits, these days all Indian women don’t just wear Indian clothes all the time.

So when you choose a design, make sure its Indo-Western style, so it goes well with all different outfits.”

Divyanka also adds the there are some occasions when she cannot wear a mangalsutra in the neck. So her lovely husband Vivek brought her a mangalsutra bracelet.

Vivek said to her that she can wear the mangalsutra bracelet when you cannot wear your mangalsutra.

    Of the designs shown here, I am in love with sacred thread and constellation pendants. Favourite chain style is that of constellation. I am not planning to buy a new one because I already have two. One is a single line black bead chain with very little gold which I wear mostly on days I take public transport, the other one is a gold chain without any black beads. I have diamond pendant as well as traditional kerala thali. Both are simple designs. Depending on the convenience, I wear any of my 4 options.
