The mangalsutra culture is said to have originated in South India, the traditional design was a yellow silk or cotton thread tied into three knots using turmeric. A traditional still prevalent in Southern India. This thread had a gold pendant called the ‘Thaali.’ As we moved north, this culture underwent a complete transformation. The only thing that remains intact is the austerity of gold as the desired metal for the gold mangalsutra. Gold already being an auspicious metal for Indians, it is not a surprise that a huge part of India prefers gold to diamond when it comes to shopping for a product such as the mangalsutra.
The beauty of the Indian Gold Mangalsutra is the diversity in design based on the various states and cultures it comes from. Every state in India has a unique look of mangalsutra design gold. Here we will explore the various forms of the traditional holy thread of matrimony.
South Indian Style – The Thaali as already mentioned above is a gold pendant that can come in various styles, they can be images of deities and Goddesses or Hindu Gods, but usually, it is a flat piece of a gold metal strip with the symbolic design of sun, moon, shivling, feather etc.
Andhra Style – The Bottu is a typical Andhra Pradesh style mangalsutra pendant that looks like a disc or coin. This tyle is sported not just by Hindus but all cultures in the state.
