In traditional Hindu wedding ceremonies, the mangalsutra is tied in three knots around the bride’s neck. The first knot is meant to represent lasting loyalty to her husband. The second mangalsutra knot represents her commitment to her new family, while the third knot represents her devotion to the Almighty and her prayers to him for protection of her marriage bond. During the ceremony of the mangal sutra, the first knot is traditionally tied by the husband while the second and third knots are tied by the groom’s sister.

This promise means that they will always stay with one another and he will continually protect her from evil. In today’s society, Hindu women prefer more exclusivity in their mangalsutra. Many women work with gemologists or jewelers to create the perfect one of a kind mangalsutra. While the shape and size vary from region to region, the mangalsutra is still a sacred piece of fashion that lets others know that the woman is married.
