Historically, the tradition of wearing Mangalsutra seems to have originated in the 5th-6th century CE. Sanskrit origin term “Mangala Sutra” refers to “Auspicious Holy Thread”. A ceremony called “Mangalya Dharanam” refers to “wearing the auspicious” which is popular in Hindu culture. It's a holy necklace or string, which the groom ties around the bride’s neck on the occasion of their marriage. Women wearing the Mangalsutra are identified as married. It’s a cultural practice across India and an essential of any Hindu marriage. This also mentioned in the 'Manusmriti' an ancient legal text among the many Dharma??stras of Hinduism.
Mangalsutra is an ornament of a woman denoting her marital status, which will be in gold with white, red or black beads and diamonds, depending on each region and culture. As per the Hindu tradition, women wear Mangalsutra for their husband’s long life.
