The first thing that comes to our mind when someone mentions Jodha Akbar is Aishwarya Rai and her extremely gorgeous jewellery. No matter how old the movie gets, Jodha’s elaborate necklaces will never go out of style. And when it’s about weddings, the over the top Jodha Akbar jewellery sets are bound to be our inspiration! So if you too are looking for an Indian princess look for your wedding day, here are our 7 favourite Jodha Akbar-inspired wedding jewellery sets.
1. A lot like Jodhabai
Aishwarya Rai wears something very similar in the movie. The gold kundan and pearl multichain necklace looks extremely royal and just what a girl needs to wear for her wedding day. We’ve seen many new brides wearing large exquisite neck pieces just like this.
Yup, the temple jewellery trend is back and we’re loving it! Put forward your princess style with this stunning gold set with traditional red and green beads. If you’re in two minds about wearing something that’s too over the top, then this is for you.
We are officially in love with this! Team the gorgeous set with a matching choker and that’s just about it. We love the pretty pearls that dangle throughout the necklace and the earrings. The green beads are great if you don’t want to go all gold and the little Swarovski crystals add the shimmer that a bride demands!
We’ve seen Aishwarya wear an OTT version of the same, but because we are living the real life, this is what we thought would be perfect for you. One can never go wrong with the classic and elegant combo of gold and kundan. Update the look with a heavy maathapatti and add a pretty nose ring if you want to look just like her!
If Jodha lived today, she too may want to keep the jewelry a bit more delicate, but something that still made her look like a Rajput princess. A beautiful ambi design, it also features an exquisite peacock illustration and thewa work. A light maangtikka would be a great add on for the bride-to-be.
The traditional red that we all relate weddings with is a great colour to add to your jewellery as well. This stunning set is complete in itself and will look fabulous if your wedding blouse has a deep neck or if the lehenga has green or orange embroidery work.
Our mums probably owned one like this and it’s only now that we realise just how gorgeous it is. A lot like Jodha’s jewellery but with a lot more colour to it. This will look fab if yours is a day wedding and your lehenga has shades of bright summer colours to it. Put on the rani haar and we’re sure you’ll be giving tough competition to Jodha herself!
