Perfect Wedding calls for an Impeccable Mangalsutraby Grecy Charls Blogger
Mangalsutra is essential in a conventional Hindu marriage. It is as essential as Sindoor in these marriages. The bride wears most in Gold, Diamond or other jewellery on the day of her wedding. Though the usage of the material of the ornament varies from person to person based on his financial condition, yet Mangalsutra is considered to be the most auspicious set of jewellery, which is of gold. That is the reason most families opt for a Gold Mangalsutra.
Specific points which you should keep in mind while buying Gold Mangalsutra for a bride or yourself:
- Size of the Mangalsutra:
Nowadays Mangalsutras come at various designs and lengths, so brides have the option to choose among multiple pieces. Average length of a Mangalsutra starts from 24-30 inches. Primary purpose for this length is that a Mangalsutra is supposed to reach the bride’s heart, i.e. a point on chest, near to the heart .
You should keep in mind the preference of the bride before buying a Mangalsutra for the bride. If the bride wants a more straightforward look, a Mangalsutra close to her neck is more viable. Smaller sizes start from 6 inches.
- Purpose of the Mangalsutra:
A bride is expected to wear a Mangalsutra at all times of the day. So depending upon her, the size and weight of a Mangalsutra should be kept in mind. If she would be wearing it for an entire day, she might opt for chic and light design. But if she wants to wear it occasionally, she might want a heavy Mangalsutra with a big pendant.
There are several designs available in heavy designs, those are accompanied by heavy pendants. Heavier Manglasutras weigh around 165 gms. So, they serve the purpose of a Mangalsutra as well as a necklace.
- A budget of the Mangalsutra:
Cost of a Mangalsutra depends on its Weight and design. But do not worry, there is a wide range of pieces of jewellery to choose from. The price of a Mangalsutra varies drastically, as people’s budget also varies enormously. The weight of a mangalsutra starts from 3gm and goes up to 60 gm. For the consumers, it’s convenient, since you can gift a Mangalsutra too if your budget is low. There are many varieties in a smaller budget also.
- Confirmation of authenticity:
Lastly, check the authenticity while buying a gold mangalsutra. An important way to verify authenticity is by checking the Hallmark. It is a mark engraved on a Mangalsutra that ensures that the jewellery is made of gold. Best way to buy authentic jewellery is to buy it from a renowned store or through online sellers if you want to buy from the comfort of your home.
Since Mangalsutras are not only used for vanity but also as an essential symbol of a bride’s marriage, choose a Mangalsutra wisely for the bride. But now, there are contemporary designs as well, which are lightweight and modern. So choosing won’t be that difficult. Keep in mind, the taste of the bride before buying a Mangalsutra.
