A magnificent combination of pearl and kundan, the ‘aad’ (square or rectangular choker) necklace has its roots in Rajasthan which is known for its intricate and signature jewellery. And, thanks to Bollywood’s ongoing love affair with history and celebrities who proudly flaunt traditionally jewellery, it looks like the traditional and ornate choker is here to stay. With its rectangular choker design paired with cascading danglers, an 'aad' neckpiece enhances any neckline and ups the elegance of your ensemble. Pair this standout piece with a matching maang tikka and jhumkas for that majestic, magical look at your wedding.

From dark tones like red, gold or black to muted pastel hues, this necklace is back in trend for its versatility and sheer beauty. Here are a couple of designs to inspire you:
