Also known as a mangala sutra (from Sanskrit mangal, meaning "holy, auspicious", and sutra, meaning "thread") a thali is part of a sacred necklace given in some parts of India and Sri Lanka by the groom"s family to the bride, the Western equivalent of the wedding ring.
In reincarnating this small antique 20K-22K thali pendant with a bezel-set faceted fuschia-colored stone - which could it be a pink tourmaline - I"ve chosen to trade the traditional thread for a delicious strand of tiny faceted mixed-color tourmaline drops. 18K gold accents. Pendant drop 3/4".
