Nowadays, you might have observed that ladies prefer to wear less-weighted small gold mangalsutra in their daily routine. The ladies do not feel comfortable wearing the conventional old mangalsutras as they are large in size, heavy-weighted, and do not match all kinds of attire. The working women prefer small-sized mangalsutra that is easy to carry and looks good in all types of attire. Hence, the traditional gold mangalsutra is now mostly kept in the bank lockers and worn by the ladies on only special occasions like weddings and other ceremonies.
