The Mangalsutra finds the roots of its piousness back in the Vedic Period. The ancient definition of Mangalsutra has changed a lot with the change in the designs of the Mangalsutras.
For so many centuries, the Mangalsutra, a pious yellow thread with a gold pendant that is carved with a particular family’s holy deity which pictured represented the marital status of a woman, has now developed into a jewelry piece that is a statement of fashion as well as a statement of love and affection between the married couple.
When it comes to Mangalutra hunting, finding the right one in one shot is not everyone’s cup of tea. And during the hunt, the only thing that comes to every woman’s mind is, “Will I ever be able to find the perfect Mangalsutra for myself?”. Only a woman knows how much this question haunts her day and night.
Designers have launched so many new designs of traditional Mangalsutras in the market that finding the perfect Mangalsutra has become an extremely challenging task for millennial brides-to-be. The modern Mangalsutras still consist of the black auspicious Mangalsutra beads, but their arrangement has encountered a few modifications.
Just like the black beads have encountered modifications, the Mangalsutra pendants have also gone through vast changes. Previously, gold was the only metal that was used in making the Mangalsutra, but now metals like yellow gold and white gold have entered the Mangalsutra market and stealing the hearts of every Gen Z woman.
Why should pendants be spared? The ancient design for the Mangalsutra pendant was carvings of family deities and other holy carvings, but now as time flew, the pendant designs also changed. We can see numerous types of Mangalsutra pendants that are studded with diamonds, gemstones, even pearls, and many other things.

Caring Tips for these beautiful pieces
Gold comes in various forms of purity like 9K, 10K, 14K, 18K, 22K, and 24K. 9K of gold is considered the lowest quality of gold and many jewelry business owners do not recommend buying that gold. While 24K is the highest quality and the purest form of gold, this gold is extremely soft, so it needs to be mixed with some other alloys in order to make it last long without getting deformed.
14K gold has a high percentage of alloyed metals and thus it offers more resistance to tear and wear. This is the reason why many individuals opt for 14K gold jewelry pieces. If you are worried about your gold jewelry being scratched, you should go for the 14K gold jewelry. If you are a newbie in investing in gold, then investing in 14K gold jewelry can be a great decision.
If we discuss white gold jewelry, then, a rhodium plate is applied to all white gold jewelry to give them the luster and bright white shine. The layer of rhodium is not so trustworthy and can fade off with time and also gain a yellow tone, so buying white gold jewelry cannot be a good option. But still, if you want to buy a piece of white gold jewelry then be prepared to take the jewelry piece to a local gold jeweler every year for getting it re-plated.
- To keep these beauties safe, always keep them in a case away from dust, water, and sweat.
- Avoid wearing them while doing any heavy task to save them from further scratches.
- Do not keep them on for a long time while taking a shower. Now, when it comes to cleaning:
- Always remember that gold jewelry pieces are delicate darlings and need utmost care, while cleaning them, always use warm water, mild dishwashing liquid, and a soft brush.
- Avoid using toothpaste, detergents, baking soda, and abrasives.
- Try washing them outside the sink. Even if you are washing them in the sink, make sure the drain is closed.
- After the bath, tap-dry the jewelry pieces with a soft, dry, and microfiber cloth.
- If you have any polishing cloth available at your house, try using that cloth for polishing the jewelry.
- All these were domestic cleaning hacks, but giving the jewelry a professional drying session is very important. Try fixing a cleaning appointment with any local jeweler around you.
Follow these simple care tips and your gold jewelry will shine forever.
