Plain Gold Mangalsutra Designs: Plain yet Splendid
For a married Hindu woman in India, her mangalsutra is one of the most prized possessions. Traditionally, once a husband ties the mangalsutra around his wife’s neck on their wedding day, the mangalsutra is meant to be worn throughout the woman’s lifetime. The word mangalsutra itself can be translated as sacred thread or cord. Today not all women wear their mangalsutras every day but this is the first piece of jewellery to come out on a festive occasion or family celebration. A mangalsutra may be long or short and while the chain itself is simple, the pendant is where a woman can make a style statement. Take a look at the designs available today and you will be amazed at the range and variety of this traditional trinket. While diamond and gemstone varieties of mangalsutras are exploding in popularity, the plain gold mangalsutras are still favoured by modern women. As a tribute to your love for plain gold, we at BlueStone offer a glittering range of plain gold mangalsutra designs.
Why Do Women Wear a Mangalsutra?
For most married Indian women, the mangalsutra is the equivalent of a wedding ring. However, it is not worn only to speak of a woman’s marital status. Many women believe that wearing a mangalsutra protects their husbands against misfortune and keeps them safe. The black beads of the mangalsutra chain are said to represent the different forms of primal energy and absorb any negative energy directed towards the woman or her husband.

Compared to its diamond or gemstone counterparts, a plain gold mangalsutra is easy to wear and maintain.
