Women’s Mangalsutra Designs for the New Age Indian Brides
In the world of jewellery, trends come and trends go. There are also times when certain traditional trends comeback in modern and stylised forms and take the industry by storm. Take, for instance, the case of the mangalsutra. It has been the traditional and longstanding visual marker of marital status for the Hindu women in India for hundreds of years. Not so long ago, this piece of ornament went through a short period of lull when many young women stopped wearing it.
However, in recent years, it made a comeback not just as a piece of customary jewellery but also as a robust fashion statement. If you think mangalsutras belong to the times of your mothers and grandmothers, you are in for a surprise. You can see them all around, from the heroines of Bollywood movies and TV soaps to modern youngsters who flaunt them proudly with a pair of jeans and a funky tee shirt. For women looking to wear their wifedom in style, BlueStone offers a great range of women’s mangalsutra designs.
Women’s Mangalsutra Designs: The Iconic Visual Marker of Marital Status
To a married Hindu woman in India, the mangalsutra is what a wedding ring to her western counterpart. It is not just a piece of jewellery but something that carries traditional and cultural values. Traditionally, it has been the most conspicuous symbol of her marital bonding, a visual marker of marital status, and the most valued asset to cherish for a lifetime.
The word mangalsutra means the ‘auspicious thread’ in Sanskrit and it symbolises the holy union between a man and a woman. In olden days, mangalsutras were made of gold in traditional designs without any stone embellishments or design innovation. The jewellery tastes of women changed and so did women’s mangalsutra designs. The jewellery industry was quick enough to come up with modern versions of traditional designs which, in no time, found their way to women’s necks and hearts alike.
