Daily Wear Mangalsutras
What is a Mangalsutra?
Every culture has its own way to signify the tying of a knot that involves a form of a jewellery piece. Like wedding bands, in India, the item used is called a Mangalsutra. It is a long chain with golden and black beads in it. After the ritual of Saat Phera (or taking the vows by the fire), the groom ties the chain on the bride’s neck. It is a symbol of a married woman. The wife wears this until the death of her husband. During the olden days, this chain would be made out of threads dyed a yellow colour. In today’s age, people wear mangalsutras jewellery made out of gold.
The significance of it varies throughout India. Some believe it to be a union of husband and wife. The black beads in mangalsutra are supposed to protect the couple from the evil eye. The term mangalsutra is derived from the Sanskrit word “Mangal” which defines the ideas of prosperous and blessed. The word “sutram” means a cord. A Mangalsutra is an amulet representing the union of two souls, and them promising to take responsibility for each other.
