Jewellery of Maharashtra

Every ornament made in the traditional style has a local name. Gathla and Putalimal are the gold coins strung together to form a necklace. Toda is a bulky bracelet. Sari is a real work of art where the two wires are twisted together with a spiral design at each end. It is worn quite tightly around the neck. Circular rings connected together forms chandraharas. Beads are often used in the Maharashtrian jewellery. Artists make beautiful strings out of moulded beads which are called mohanmal.
