Mangalsutra, the sacred symbol of marriage, has been an integral part of Indian culture since time immemorial. It is a necklace made of gold and black beads that symbolises the bond between the husband and wife. However, with the changing fashion trends, the traditional ornament has undergone a major transformation in recent years. One of these transformations is wearing an elegant mangalsutra design around your wrist in the form of a bracelet.
Today, modern brides opt for unique gold mangalsutra designs that are both stylish and meaningful. And whether it is bracelets or necklaces, with or without diamonds, the options are endless. The word “Mangalsutra” is derived from two words – “mangal”, meaning auspicious, and “sutra”, meaning thread or cord.
Recently, the concept of mangalsutra has evolved, and many women prefer to wear a mangalsutra bracelet instead of a traditional one. Like the traditional ornament, the Mangalsutra bracelets are typically made of black beads, considered auspicious in Indian culture. They are also studded with precious stones like diamonds, pearls, and gold beads to add a touch of elegance to the piece.
Here are ten unique diamond fancy mangalsutra designs that every modern bride would love to own:
- The Traditional Gold Mangalsutra Design
Traditionally, mangalsutra design features one vati, a spherical or dome-shaped pendant, or two vatis. Different regions of the country added a representation of their family deity to the pendant. Over time, these designs have given way to more contemporary designs while retaining the traditional meaning. For example, the Pankhuri Watimani Diamond Mangalsutra and the Urmi Coin Diamond Mangalsutra both have two vatis in a modern design.
- The Floral Diamond Mangalsutra
Flowers symbolise blooming love and happiness, and what better way to express your love than through a floral diamond mangalsutra?

The Zuri Diamond Mangalsutra looks elegant and is perfect for the modern bride who wants to add a touch of femininity to her wedding attire.
- The Diamond Heart Mangalsutra
A heart-shaped diamond mangalsutra is the perfect way to express your love for your partner.

- The Diamond and Gemstone Mangalsutra:
It is common to find mangalsutras in black beads and diamonds. A gemstone adds a touch of glam with a brilliantly hued gemstone. The Neerja Gemstone Mangalsutra is a fine example of how synthetic ruby can enhance the necklace’s diamonds, black beads, and yellow gold. However, if you can stretch your budget, you can go for the Lekha Gemstone Mangalsutra with its sparkling diamonds and green gemstone.

Solitaires always elevate a simple design to an extraordinary one. The Aahana Solitaire Mangalsutra and the Aster Solitaire Mangalsutra are most elegant in their simplest form. In contrast, the Aisha Solitaire Mangalsutra is more dramatic, with three solitaires in a sleek design.

Rose gold jewellery has become quite popular among modern women, although the gold itself presents a degree of antiquity. It is like wearing antique jewellery in a modern design. The Saisha Diamond Mangalsutra is one of the most subtle designs, with a single flower nestling a cluster of diamonds and a black bead hanging from the centre. The rose gold will make all the difference in terms of style for your wedding day.

Sometimes a simple necklace will not be enough. A little design element that can make it fancier is the lariat design. Mangalsutras like the Tahini Lariat Diamond Mangalsutura and the Nubia Lariat Diamond Mangalsutra are perfect examples of what a unique design can do for a modern bride.
- Bracelet Mangalsutra
The uniqueness of a mangalsutra bracelet lies in its design, meaning, and symbolism. It is not just any piece of jewellery but one that is a powerful symbol of love, commitment, and marital bliss.
A bracelet mangalsutra with diamonds and pearls upholds the traditional symbol while also bringing a modern element to the mangalsutra.
