'Mangalsutra' is the auspicious thread that symbolizes the marital status of a woman. The groom ties this auspicious thread around his bride's neck, at the wedding ceremony. This thread is made of a gold pendant and black beads. Black beads are worn to ward off the evil eye and to have a flawless marriage. In olden times, women wore this auspicious thread around them at all times. However, as times progressed, so did the traditions. These days, women wear the mangalsutra only on special occasions, to match it up with their traditional outfits. Though we cannot completely deny the fact that, many women follow traditions and wear the auspicious thread all the time. In any case, this thread plays an important role in the lives of married women. Many jewellery stores these days have started showing their creativity in the making of this auspicious thread, which is more evident.

Nowadays, women buy gold or diamond mangalsutra, depending on their budget and style. They try to team up this auspicious thread with their outfits for special occasions; they generally go for a diamond mangalsutra for informal parties, and the gold mangalsutra for traditional ceremonies. It is important to buy the right design to match your personality and style, since this thread is the definition of a married woman. The gold mangalsutra goes best with silk sarees and make the woman look simple and elegant. While a long diamond mangalsutra looks good on designer sarees and gives the woman a more contemporary look. These threads come in various sizes from short, medium to long. There are many designs available, not just in pendants, but also in the beads holding the pendant in place.

Women match their mangalsutra with earrings, and demand for gold jewellery designs that are unique in style. A diamond mangalsutra is matched with bangles, earrings and finger rings. A gold mangalsutra can be paired with a gold necklace, bangles, earrings, armband, waistband, etc. Women these days, pay special attention to their mangalsutra, as it is one of their important assets. On many occasions, just a simple mangalsutra paired with earrings looks elegant and classy. In India, the mangalsutra holds a special significance in every married woman's life. In the Northern regions of India, this auspicious thread is called 'mangalsutra', and in the Southern parts of India, it is called 'thaali'. The name further varies according to the different castes and sub-castes; but in the end, this auspicious thread holds the same value and importance in every woman's life in India.

There is a new trend in modern India, where women believe in wearing a simple platinum ring on their ring finger, as proof of being married. They prefer wearing platinum bands that match with their husband's band, and save the mangalsutra only for special occasions. These bands also signify love and loyalty; and hence, this western culture of platinum rings is soon spreading among the contemporary Indian women as an option to the mangalsutra.
