Neck Ornaments

Indian necklaces are of different kinds, such as the gold Galobandh (a small choker neckpiece) or the longer pearl rani haar necklace. Since ancient times, necklaces, pendants, strings of beads and elaborate ornamental collars are bejewelled by both men and women for purposes of adornment and social status.

It is usually a necklace with black beads strung from a black or yellow thread prepared with turmeric. Sometimes gold, white or red beads are also added to the mangala sutram, depending on regional variation. It is a symbol of marriage worn by women. Mangala sutra's origin dates back to the 6th Century AD as a single yellow thread was tied around the bride for protection from other men and evil spirits.
