A choker adds elegance to any outfit with which it is coupled. From high-collared blouses to ones with deeper cuts – a choker is a piece of jewellery that you can pull off with numerous necklines. Wear a single neckpiece, or couple a smaller choker around your neck along with slightly bigger haar to create a regal look.

We love how this bride has fused a rustic silver choker with her pastel ensemble, creating a vibe that is chic as well as elegant. You can go for smaller chokers like these with more traditional necklines.

When you choose to wear a high-collared blouse, the choice of necklace becomes slightly restricted. But, is the queen ever wrong? Even though we adore all of Deepika’s wedding looks, this green beauty among her bridal jewellery is one of our favorites and we love how she aces the look with a stunning wide band choker!

The Panchlada or Satlada Haar

Whether you want to add detail to an already set ensemble or jazz up a simple silk blouse – a multilayered haar type necklace is a perfect choice. Named so because of the number of strings – five or seven, a Panchlada or Satlada haar adds tonnes of grace to your look. With layered necklaces, remember that less is more. Going for a seven-layered piece? Keep your blouse on the simpler side to let the haar shine through.

When it comes to jewelry, no Cartier or Tiffany’s can beat the art and skill of traditional Indian jewellers and Meenakari jewelry is one such craft. Associated with the royal ladies of Rajasthan, a meenakari set is one that every bride must have! Move over traditional colours, you can even match your neon lehenga with pastel meenakari jewellery to create a perfectly classy look.

Royalty at its Best

True to its name, the Maharani Haar has only one job – to make you feel like an empress. If your budget allows, it’s the obvious choice for your wedding day. Drooping a little low beyond your neckline, it is often set with kundan and colored stones like emeralds and lots of pearls. You can pair it with a smaller piece worn close to the neck to complete the maharani look.

If you can invest in a maharani haar, you need not necessarily be an Ambani to shine on your wedding day 😉

Let your Navratan haar be the show stopper of the night. Although it matches with any base color, our personal favorites are pastel shades like pink, fuchsia or basic ones like white, gold or nude.

The best part? Navratan haars complement western outfits equally well. From lacy evening gowns in shades of fawn to daytime destination wedding wear – you can depend on these to bring out your best.

Those diamonds might look delicate, but they are the hardest substance on earth. A lot like us girls 😉 And that, ladies, is reason 101 for why you should invest in a diamond necklace at your wedding. The other hundred reasons? Look inside your heart! To keep it simple, do nothing more than two strings of diamonds around your neck, and you’re good to go. If you’ve chosen kundan or gold for your wedding day, keep diamonds for functions like cocktail or reception.

A “Bib” style necklace – named so because its structure resembles that of a baby’s bib, is one that is generally straight along the neck and ends in an inverted triangle formation towards the bottom. A bib style necklace is an excellent way to fill up your neck when you’re wearing a deep cut neckline – whether it’s a blouse or an off-shoulder gown.

Big, bold and beautiful – Polki jewelry is as timeless as it gets! We suggest investing in a piece that you can wear not just with a lehenga or a sari – but even with an evening gown, and you’ll thank us later 🙂 For brides wearing deeper and more daring necklines, we recommend Polki necklaces in parts of two – a smaller choker around the neck, and a second, longer layer to add oomph.
