Solah Shringar with Rivaah by Tanishq – Bangles, Mangtika, and Haar
Decoding the 16 bridal adornments with versatile jewellery from Rivaah by Tanishq that evokes a feeling of alluring beauty for every Indian bride.
The Solah Shringaar, the sixteen pieces that decorate an Indian bride, are regarded in Hindu Mythology as the adornments of Goddesses.
Although it may not be as strictly adhered to today, the term Solah Shringaar still evokes a feeling of alluring beauty and is strongly associated with grandeur and opulence when it comes to Indian brides.
Paying tribute to these traditional bridal adornments, WeddingSutra On Location, in association with Rivaah by Tanishq, brings to you the top wedding trends and styles for today’s brides.
Creating the splendid looks were hairstylist Mini Mahadik and makeup artist Amrita Kalyanpur, who put together these stunning styles using products from the Lakmé Absolute range.
Capturing all the beautiful traditions and modern trends in gorgeous frames was team Shades Photography.
Nothing screams bridal opulence like a polki choker against the dainty neck of a bride. Heavily-embellished with white stones, the choker was paired with a layered kundan masterpiece that stood out against the bride’s alluring maroon blouse. She wore matching earrings that perfectly complemented an enchanting gold and diamond maang tikka. The bride’s wrists were adorned in antique gold bangles from Tanishq’s Rivaah Collection. The gold perfectly contrasted with her simple yet stunning maroon lehenga that was embellished with mirrors; a creation by Abhinav Mishra.

Designed by Abhinav Mishra, this bride’s dazzling silver-embroidered lehenga’s beauty was multiplied by the stunning kundan jewelry of Rivaah by Tanishq. Her studded choker looked gorgeous as it was paired with a dreamy gold rani haar in royal red and blue shades. Multiple lines of pristine pearls, stones, gold and polki diamonds adorned the rani haar. A majestic diamond and gold pendant took the bride’s jewelry to the next level. The traditional borla matha patti with pearl strings looked surreal alongside her matching antique gold earrings, antique bangles and a polki ring on her finger. The combined effect resulted in the bride looking like a royal queen, exuding an ethereal opulence through her jewels and ensemble.

Donning an exquisite pearl meenakari haar that perfectly blended tradition with present-day design, the bride looked magical in a pristine white lehenga with intricate mirror-work, designed by Jayanti Reddy. Complementing her necklace was a matching set of pearl meenakari earrings that, just like the haar, borrowed heavily from the ethnic style of Rajasthani jewelry. A subtle pearl maang tikka sat atop her forehead and she had a delicate gold hathphool wrapped around her finger and wrist. The stone-studded baubles added splendour and were the perfect contrast to the white outfit, making this bride dazzle.
Makeup Artist Amrita Kalyanpur played up the look with a dash of tangerine on the bride’s lips, and keeping the eyes soft with a peachy – nude eye shadow.
