How to Choose the Best Mangalsutra for Yourself

Mangalsutra which means ‘auspicious thread’ in Sanskrit worn by every married Hindu woman. It is more than a piece of jewellery for a Hindu bride or a Hindu married woman. It is a symbol of marriage that a bridegroom ties around the bride’s neck during the wedding ceremony. Traditionally, mangalsutra is given by the groom’s family to the bride. However, we have seen many women like to choose their own Mangalsutra Design in Nagpur, and if you too are one of them, these are the things you need to keep in mind:

Know your cultural requirements

In India, each community like Maharashtrians, Tamilians, Sindhis, Gujaratis etc. have their own set of rules to follow according to its culture. Even though many people are now quite flexible, it is always better to know the kind of mangalsutras your elders wear so that you can too follow the basic cultural traditions. For example, for a Maharashtrian bride, two gold vattis are essential parts of a mangalsutra design. A Bihari bride wears a mangalsutra that is made up of a black beaded chain with a central gold pendant. In the Telegu community, it is common for precious stones like coral beads and pearls to be added along with the pendant.

Type of metal and budget

This is a personal choice of every bride. Gold is the most commonly used metal for making Mangalsutras. But now, with changing times and increasing demand, they are available in platinum, white gold etc. So, just check out all the options that are possible within your budget first, and then you can decide the type of metal for your mangalsutra. If you want to add some more bling and if it is within your budget, you can go for the ones that have diamonds in them.

Classic or contemporary style

Think about all the various occasions that you will be wearing the mangalsutra and based on that you can decide the managlsutra design. If you are looking for a mangalsutra to be worn daily, you can choose a light and elegant design that is comfortable and will go with all your outfits and looks, whether it’s Indian or Western. If you want to buy a mangalsutra that you can wear on special occasions like festivals, family functions etc. you can choose a traditional-looking classic mangalsutra with an intricately designed pendant. The pendants come in different styles, like hanging pendants, lightweight pendants, pendants with varying sizes of precious and semi-precious stones etc. There are plenty of options available in both traditional as well as contemporary designs, ensuring that you make your choice according to your need and comfort.

Length and design of the mangalsutra chain

Apart from the way you want the mangasutra’s pendant design, focus on the length and design of the chain too as that too changes the overall look of the managlsutra and adds to the beauty. Traditionally, the mangalsutra’s chain length was to be kept long enough to reach the Anahata Chakra, meaning the Heart Chakra of the bride. This meant that the chain length would be around 24-30 inches long. Anahata Chakra is associated with balance, calmness, and serenity. Also, a typical mangalsutra had two strings of chain with black beads which represents a union of Shiva and Shakti. There is no hard-and-fast rule about the length of the mangalsutra. You can keep it long or short as you prefer. Just ensure that that the back of your chain, you have some extra loops to adjust the length to suit your taste and outfit type.

Pay special attention to the chain quality so that your mangalsutra remains beautiful and durable for a long time. A good-quality chain should be comfortable to wear and should perfectly sit on your neck. If you buy a low-quality one, it will keep bending and getting entangled. A 22K gold chain is more flexible and less likely to snap than a 14K gold chain which is slightly due to more presence of other metals in it.

Check for quality before purchasing

Before you buy your mangalsutra, always look for the quality checkmark on it. If you are buying a mangalsutra having gold in it, there must be a hallmark sign on it.
