Indian religion is famous for its rituals, customs and so many different traditions. Of all these different traditions, the traditional gold Mangalsutra - the most noteworthy and powerful piece of female jewelry, is also a part of these Indian traditions.
As we've mentioned, the mangalsutra is a crucial component of married women in India, while the ring is a significant component of the American as well as other western countries' marriage traditions.
Mangalsutra, a Sanskrit word for auspiciousness, is a yellow thread meant to connect the couple’s souls with each other for the rest of their lives with seven priceless promises made to each other, in the presence of God himself and other family members.
After the marriage, the wife is expected to wear the Gold Mangalsutra for the rest of her life as a sign of the marriage's symbolism and to express her love and devotion to her spouse.
Changes in traditional Gold Mangalsutra Designs Through Time
In ancient Indian tradition, the traditional gold Mangalsutra is highly admired. But this is not the case for Married Indian ladies of the 21st century. For them, the Mangalsutra has become more than just a piece of jewelry and a symbol of affection and devotion for each other, the gold Mangalsutra has started to become more of a fashion statement.
Though the Mangalsutra has become a fashion statement, it has not lost its true meaning of protecting the couple’s matrimony from negative energy. It is considered to be the wife’s most valuable ornament.
The supernatural abilities of a mangalsutra are deeply entrenched in the minds of every married Indian Hindu lady. The black beads used in the sacred strands repel the evil eye and negativity.
Traditionally, women wore long gold Mangalsutras, but modern brides chose to wear short ones because they blended well with so many different clothes. A gold mangalsutra has also evolved into a statement piece of jewelry for today's modern millennial brides. As a result, a variety of gold Mangalsutras have been emerging in the market to satisfy our millennial beauties.
The traditional gold Mangalsutra designs have evolved a lot and are now available in different varieties like white gold Mangalsutra and yellow gold Mangalsutra. From which the white gold Mangalsutra has been becoming more and more popular as it plays the perfect substitute for a platinum jewelry piece.
Along with this, the popularity of yellow gold Mangalsutra was not at all deteriorated. In fact, new gold Mangalsutra designs emerged with a few modifications, like gold diamond Mangalsutras, which consist of diamond-studded gold Mangalsutra pendants.
