Mangalsutra is a traditional jewellery, which is very important in Hindu marriages. In the beginning Mangalsutra came under the ritual of Mangalya Dharanam in Hindu marriages, in which bride and groom promise each other that they will live together from then on. In earlier years, people used black pearls with yellow turmeric threads. It was also believed that the Mangalsutra is a precious bond like the Lord Shiva and the Goddess Shakti. Over the years and the development of ornaments in gold and silver, the Mangalsutra took on the form of black pearls with hanging pendants.
Mangalsutra, a Sanskrit name referring to an auspicious thread around the bride’s neck, has a long life span for the presence and importance of the groom in the bride’s life. If the meaning of the mangal sutra is so valuable, then why can’t the jewelry itself be? Women wear Mangalsutra for their husband’s well-being and long life. The piece of jewellery should be precious enough to embellish her life.
