But did you know the significance of Mangalsutra and why do married Hindu women wear it?
Here is the answer:
What is the history behind wearing Mangalsutra | The Origin of Mangalsutra
The term Mangalsutra is a combination of two words mangal and sutra. The word mangal means auspicious, and Sutra means thread – together Mangalsutra means an auspicious thread uniting the souls.
It is believed that Mangalsutra, which is one of the essential aspects of the Hindu tradition, originated in South India and was adopted by the Northern states. In South India, the name and style of a Mangalsutra change depending on the community and caste. It is usually called a Thaali or Thirumangalyam, and it has a long yellow thread and a gold pendant representing the Goddess Supreme.
Though the concept was formed in South India, it migrated to other parts of the country and evolved accordingly. Wherever you go in India, you will find different types of Mangalsutra and variations of the same theme.
What is the Significance of Mangalsutra?
In Hindu traditions and culture, a woman has to wear five signs of marital status – the Mangalsutra, toe rings, Kumkum, bangles and a nose ring. Of these five, Mangalsutra is the most important.
The Hindu culture also believes that a woman who is wearing a Mangalsutra, should never part with it until her husband’s death. And if the thread of the Mangalsutra breaks for some reason, it is considered to be a bad omen.
A Mangalsutra is not just a piece of jewellery or a fashion accessory; it is a symbol of eternal love, respect, and trust that a husband and wife share.

Is Mangalsutra bracelet suitable according to astrology?
Based on astrology, the gold in the Mangalsutra is under the influence of the Guru planet. It is a symbol of gold, prosperity, wealth and knowledge in your marital life. The black beads are considered as a symbol of Saturn. The planet Saturn represents durability and integrity in the relationship. So with the combination of Guru and Saturn, the Mangalsutra acts as a symbol of your future relationship. So the benefits of Mangalsutra remain the same even if it is in bracelet form.
