Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your existence, and every decision you make will impact your upcoming life. Amongst many things, choosing the right mangalsutra is crucial, and we will help you choose the best one.

Mangalsutra selection is no joke when it comes to Hindu women. It is not just an ordinary jewelry piece since it has religious significance.

In Hinduism, Mangalsutra is the combo of 2 words, ‘Mangal,’ which means ‘auspicious,’ and ‘Sutra,’ meaning ‘thread’ or ’cord.’

Since this jewelry piece has immense religious sentiments, we are here to help you select the best one.

9 Tips To Select The Perfect Mangalsutra For Your self

You do not go for one just for the sake of it. Remember these tips while getting it.

1. Culture

Every culture, Gujrati, Marathi, or Bengali, has different requirements regarding mangalsutra. Therefore, before making the purchase, know what your family and in-laws want.

A standard version is pretty simple; it is a simple black bead chain with a pendant of your choice. Customary mangalsutras such as Dehjoor, Kathamani Pathak, Thali, and Minnu are some types.

Here’s an example. A Maharashtrian bride wears 2 gold vattis. It is a very important piece of a mangalsutra due to cultural needs.

2. Versatility

Always go for a flexible design that caters to every kind of look you’d want to go for after the wedding. Finding a mangalsutra that goes with western and eastern wear is hard but not impossible!

Our suggestion is to go for a shorter chain. Choose a simple, small chain with a tiny diamond pendant hanging.

It is totally fine if black beads do not attract you. Just add a few black ones in the back to ensure that the look overall is not too overpowering.

3. Best Kind Of Length Of Mangalsutra

Some prefer it high, near the collarbone. On the other hand, a few go for a longer chain. Various options are available for longer chains, like 22 inches or 36 inches.

The standard size set is 16 inches. Therefore, in case you are not sure which one to go for, the standard 16-inch will suit you.

However, add some extra loops in the back of your chain so that you can adjust its length to your liking later.

4. Pendant Style

You have a choice with pendants. You can either go for gold or uncut diamonds. Our suggestion is diamond if you are looking for the best modern mangalsutra.

5. Pendant quality

Make sure your stone or diamond is pure and not a knockoff.

6. Select your metal

Gold or white gold both give an ethereal look. However, if you can’t decide on one, there is a third option of both! Yes, you heard that right! Mix them both to don them whenever you want easily.

7. Do Not Go Over Your Budget

Your mangalsutra is a piece that is going to be with you forever and may be passed along as an heirloom. But still, weddings are not cheap, so set a budget for every aspect of it.

8. Get Your Trusted Jeweler on Board

You find many stores right around the corner; however, make sure that you go to your trusted guy. If this is your first time, then look for reviews first before making the purchase.

9. Thoroughly Check Minute Details

Do not forget to check the following things:

  1. Chain quality of your mangalsutra.
  2. Diamond or any other gem used.
  3. Always make sure that the hooks are of gold at the back.
