Out of all the precious, culturally important and beautifully adorned ornaments, mangalsutra is the most significant jewelry for a married woman. It symbolizes the eternity of love and the bond of her marriage. Mangalsutra is very important for a woman right from her wedding day. Its significance traces back from the ancient times. According to our ancestors, the beads of a mangalsutra have its importance. Very importantly, it signifies her married status. It's the symbol of love, she has for her husband and it is a promise to keep the bond intact. It is a custom in a wedding ceremony where the groom ties the mangalsutra to the bride's neck.
The name 'Mangalsutra' has a deep meaning. 'Mangal' means sacred and 'sutra' means a thread. It implies that mangalsutra is a sacred thread which a woman wears after getting married, supporting the vows taken during the wedding. It is the trust between the two newly wedded partners. Mangalsutra is an ornament which has beautiful, oval to cylindrical beads of black and golden color. The golden part is made of gold. It holds a ravishingly stunning pendant in the middle. There could be more than two rows of beads in a mangalsutra.
Waman Hari Pethe Jewelers have a wide range of mangalsutra available in their explicit collection. The mangalsutra could be very short, close to the neck or of medium size near to the chest or with a good length. Mangalsutra designs are mostly about gold plating and black beads. Sometimes, diamonds are a part of it too. The chain part of the mangalsutra could be a simple chain composed of black and golden beads, arranged alternately. It could even have a row of black beads, interrupted in between by a golden bead. The pendant for this chain like mangalsutra could be very tiny, two bowl like structures, made of gold having carved lines on it. That's a typical mangalsutra.
