Believe it or not, bridal necklaces make for the most integral part of the bridal outfit. Brides are more than aware of the same and therefore choose their pick rather carefully. Some prefer stylish & vibrant meenakari jewellery designs, while others go all out to pick the chunkiest of them all. 

Whether you love the dainty bridal necklaces or the chunky ones, the choice remains tricky as you have to keep a lot of factors in check before picking the right one. From perfectly matching to your neckline to complimenting your bridal outfit, and adding colour to the look or balancing it out, chunky bridal necklaces are especially harder to zero down on. So here’s something that'll help you place a safe bet for your big day. Scroll through to look at some of the most stunning and best chunky bridal necklaces that we spotted on real brides and take a cue for your dream wedding. 

Latest Chunky Bridal Necklaces That We Fell in Love With

Rajputi Polki Necklace

On top of our list is this beautiful Rajasthani Polki necklace with crescent hangings and pearl accents that make it royally irresistible. With a deep blue sapphire accentuating the look this gold necklace, this bride has beautifully paired it in contrast to a peach lehenga for her wedding day. If you’re in love with this necklace as much as we are, pair it with a traditional bridal lehenga or saree to make heads turn on your big day. 

Geometric Diamond Necklace with Emeralds

Next on our list is one of the top chunky bridal necklaces that is this beautiful bib necklace that covers almost the entire collar bone of the bride. With geometrically cut diamonds delicately put together, the highlight of this necklace is the big chunk of emerald stones placed in the centre while the double layers of emerald at the bottom adds colour to this chunky necklace making it more eye-catching.

Bright Choker Necklace

While a chunky gold necklace might seem difficult to pull off for most of us, here’s a bride that proves us wrong with a choker necklace that is impossible to take your eyes off. The thick gold band on the neck makes for the highlight of the necklace, however, the delicate hangings only add more glamour and compliment her deep neck blouse.

Elaborate Gold Necklace with Stones

Not every bride is comfortable with traditional heavy jewellery and rather wishes to carry something elaborate and yet very modern. Here’s a bride who slayed her golden lehenga with a heavy necklace full of large tear-drop shaped stones against a golden base that looks stunning. 

Meenakari Choker Necklace with Hangings

Meenakari jewellery is undoubtedly every modern bride’s favourite as it allows them to add more colours to their look while keeping it elegant and classy. Here’s a bride who paired a midnight blue meenakari choker necklace beautifully with her green Sabyasachi lehenga almost making us jealous of how pretty she looks.

While talking of chunky necklaces, you can’t miss out on the Rajputi Aadh necklace that is said to be the most elaborate of them all. We found a bride who didn’t just pick a traditional necklace but also rocked the elaborate piece beautifully. With a mix of Kundan and rubies, the highlight of this necklace is the pearls that accentuate the design and make it look more chunky for her wedding day. 

Heavy Layered Diamond Bridal Necklace

If you’re someone who loves diamond jewellery but not sure of choosing it for your big day, here’s all the inspiration that you need. This bride did not just choose gold and diamonds, but also carried it off like a pro on her big day. The layered crescent hangings, however, remain the highlight of her necklace for us. 

Maharani Emerald Haar

Unlike what the others chose, here’s a bride who went all-in with her bridal jewellery and picked a heavy maharani style necklace with emeralds and a quintessential traditional whiff of Kundan. While her chunky bridal necklace could easily overpower her look but she paired it with a stunning onion pink lehenga to balance the colours out. 

The Gold Plated Necklace with a Hint of Meenakari

Chunky Gold Collar Necklace

On a scale of 1 to 10, this is a 10 when it comes to royal necklaces worn by brides. This bride did not just choose a chunky collar necklace for her big day but also went all out by picking a gold necklace design with studded rubies that make it pop.

Regal & Bold Gold Necklace

For all of you counting on never seen before chunky bridal necklaces, here’s the perfect pick for you to drool over. While this is by far the most regal necklaces of them all, what makes it one of a kind is its unique design. Despite being one of the chunkiest of them all, we love how it seems easy to carry for the brides-to-be. 

Layered Gold Long Necklace with Studded Diamonds

While most brides think of short choker or collar necklaces when we say chunky, the truth is that even the long necklaces make for a piece of chunky jewellery. Just like this beautiful layered gold necklace with diamonds studded on it. The emerald drops don’t just add a little colour to it but also make sure that it matches any outfit, any neckline and every colour on your big day.
