By TGB Desk / On May 30th, 2018

Hello Ladies,

How is Wednesday treating you so far? Team TGB is determined not to let you succumb to the mid-week blues. So we have decided to give you a little boost and add some sparkle to your day.

In case you haven’t noticed, brides these days are showing increased inclination towards traditional jewelry. And we are not complaining one bit! Traditional temple jewelry has been a constant in every South Indian bridal trousseau worth its salt. Kasu mala and Mango mala have made a fantastic comeback and are here to stay. There’s another gorgeous accessory that’s slowly but surely capturing the imagination of the fashionista brides – Bottu mala necklace.

The brides across South India are owning up this new trend and for good reason – it pairs up beautifully with lavish muhurtam saree! Bottu maala necklace is an elegant statement piece that is sure to help the wearer make a lasting impression.

Now what is a bottu mala necklace? This necklace is a little similar to Kasu mala. But in case of bottu mala, medallion shaped ornaments are strung together instead of Kasus (gold coins). The size of each medallion is slightly bigger than the Kasu. Also, the medallions are loosely strung so that they do not overlap unlike in Kasu mala. These mediallions are usually embossed with Lakshmi motif or encrusted with precious stones such as diamonds, rubies and emeralds. It’s very rare to find a bottu mala with a pendant. But of late, designer bottu malas have a dangling pendant.

To get you started with some bottu mala inspo, we thought we’d share a roundup of South Indian brides who flaunted bottu mala necklace on their wedding day. Here you go –
