Long Mangalsutra is the traditional type and most of the women wear at the time of marriage, because it is to be considered as the most important jewellery ornament for the married women. CS Jewellers has the quirky Long gold Mangalsutra Designs.
A lot of mangalsutras are available in the market few are long traditional designs and few designs are short and according to modern society. But, one thing never been replaced is black beads as the yellow sacred thread has been replaced with gold in the few regions. Some people also prefer to have the black beads threaded with pendants which are made of different metals such as gold, and silver and which are also studded with diamonds and gems.
In the old days, the designs were kept simple as there was a less availability of crafting techniques. But, the time has changed now, the customers get a variety of different designs, which are formed in different shapes with metals. The number of strings also varies according to your interest as some keep two strings, whereas other prefer to have a single string
