Wearing a mangalsutra around your neck is apparently passe. Some folks wear it as a bracelet around their wrist.

Shilpa Shetty has been a long-time loyalist of the look. Priyanka Chopra has worn it too.

However, when Sonam K Ahuja tried it out at a recent outing to promote Veere Di Wedding, she was trolled.

While a handful described Sonam's styling choice as 'beautiful' and 'stylish', others felt she was 'disrespecting Indian culture' by wearing a mangalsutra as a wrist accessory.

It may not be a trend for the faint of heart, but the mangalsutra bracelet is already available at jeweller stores.

Sonam wears a custom-made 'star sign mangalsutra' by jewellery designer Usheeta Rawtani.
'This one was especially designed by the bride (@sonamkapoor) herself and executed by us. It has symbols of both their star signs.
