The sensational bollywood actress, Deepika Padukone, just married Ranveer Singh and their fans couldn’t have asked for more. Both have been admired generously by their fans and media alike since the beginning of their serious relationship. It’s almost a dream come true with two of the biggest celebrities of India, Deepika & Ranveer, deciding to marry each other. Following on the now settled trend of nicknaming celeb couples, this latest husband-wife jodi is being dubbed as “DeepVeer”. Cutting back to the agenda of this post (because we are sure you know more about this couple than we do), let’s unravel the mystery behind Deepika’s glamorous new solitaire mangalsutra.
Not long after they had landed in India after their dreamy Italian wedding, the papz went crazy clicking this much admired and much-awaited couple at the airport. Just like numerous photos and posts covering each and every attire or accessory worn by them, the mangalsutras pictures went public this morning. If you search on Google now “Deepika Padukone Mangalsutra”, you can find an unimaginable number of posts on different publications to blogs, from bizarre to just laughable. The most bizarre of them being that Deepika Padukone’s mangalsutra price is ₹20 whopping lacs. We wouldn’t be surprised if it actually was that much, given their celebrity status. But what we saw in pictures, clearly didn’t look like the big bucks. The price estimate of 20 Lacs rests on the assumption that the Mangalsutra has one large diamond of big size. While what we feel from the pictures released is that it is rather made of a cluster of small diamonds that look like one large diamond or a solitaire. So if it really was a solitaire diamond, it could have cost around ₹20 Lacs. But when we use smaller diamonds to make a cluster that big, the cost comes down drastically to under 1 Lacs. Regardless of the cost of what she wore, all you need to know is that you can get something like that for much less than you are hearing in the media.
Let’s raise the curtains and show you how similar these are.
By now, we are sure you must be dying for a closer look. So let’s begin the feast –
What you see in the pictures above is a real diamond mangalsutra made on a gold base and attached to a mangalsutra chain. The only way our solitaire mangalsutra design is different from the one that you saw in Deepika’s pictures is that the pendant she wore had a bail through which she could pass her chain, whereas the pictures we have posted has two small links on the pendant itself which are then attached to two small links on that chain. Either of these styles can be adopted by you while choosing your mangalsutra. The one where you can remove the chain and the pendant is not always attached to the chain is more practical these days. That’s because you will be able to wear them on your regular gold chain on a daily basis when you don’t feel like sporting the black beaded mangalsutra chain. Wanna buy them right now? Here you go –
How cool are these? So how come they come for under a lac rupees? Are they real diamonds? Is this some scam? Let us tell you a little about ourselves – KuberBox.com is one of the most highly rated online jewellery brands (check our reviews here) of India. We house more than 3200+ unique jewellery designs on our website that include almost all kinds of regular jewellery and some really fine accessories like men’s cufflinks, gold maang tikkas, and more. We are based in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India, and being located in the Gem Capital of the world, we have access to the finest precious stones, diamonds and goldsmiths.
When it comes to diamonds, the price of 1 carat-size diamond is not two times the price of 1/2 carat-size diamonds. The per-carat (diamonds are weighed in carats) prices of diamond increase exponentially as the diameter or the size of the stone increases. Just to give you an idea, 1 piece of a 1/2-carat diamond (so, a total weight of 1 x 0.50 = 0.50 carats) will cost you about INR 70k, while 1 piece of 1-carat diamond will cost you INR 290k. It’s not double of 70k, not triple of that either. It’s 4 times that price. I hope you get the idea.
We are able to reduce the size of this Deepika’s Mangalsutra by using smaller sized diamonds and arranging them in a way that provides the best shine and provides the same size appearance as that of a single large diamond or solitaire. Quality wise, there is no compromise – you would be getting the same colour and clarity grade diamonds.
Sounds interesting and fun, right. If you have read all this and now can’t wait to lay hands on one of your own such mangalsutra and rock your new jewellery, all you need to do is get in touch with us. The sizes and prices of these solitaire mangalsutras can be customized to your budget. You may choose to have or skip the mangalsutra chain. If you already have a chain, you can buy just the pendant and then have them attached to your chain locally. The starting price range is about INR 40000 for such pendants. If you have any other customization ideas and want us to work around that, we would love to do that.

Now, for those of you, who are interested in diving deeper, take a look as to how we arrange the diamonds to get this one round look –
A square shaped princess diamond is kept at the centre and then 4 marquise shaped diamonds are arranged around it such that one side of each marquise diamond forms a quarter of the circumference of the round diamond.
See how it evolves into a beautiful round shape below –
