The multi layered necklace or the Rani Haar, as the name suggests, was a favourite with the royal ladies. Hence the nomenclature. A traditional Rani Haar is basically a long multi layered necklace with strings of pearls held together by a large centrepiece or several smaller ones. An authentic Queenly rani haar will have a cascading effect with kundan, ruby and Meenakari detailing. Another form of rani haar has a centre piece, like a pendant. It could be embellished with diamonds, rubies and emeralds or crafted with pure gold. Variations of the rani haar include an all-gold look and with two strands of gold beads.
How to Wear It: The rani haar works great when you want to accessorise your ethnic outfit without wearing too much bling. The length of the rani haar will automatically make you look taller, regal. A rani haar with a matching pair of jhumkis or chaandbali is all you need for a festive or special occasion. The Rani Haar goes well with traditional lehengas and sarees. It also blends well with anarkalis and other heavy kurtas and fusion wear. A pearl and emerald rani haar may be just the kind of ethnic touch you need for your quirky outfit worn for a beach wedding or a morning event, like a mehndi or a bridal shower.
From Sonam Kapoor to Kangana Ranaut, Deepika Padukone to Anushka Sharma, the Rani Haar has been favoured by all the stylish leading ladies of Bollywood.
