Mohan Mala is one of the most elaborate and rich-looking necklaces worn in the southern and western parts of India. The look of this Maharashtrian jewellery staple is completely traditional and ethnic which makes it look exotic and pure. The mala is made of gold beads and a pendant is attached, probably in a round shape, right in the middle. Depending upon one's taste and budget, the layering of gold beads and the size of the pendant varies. Mohan Malas do get adorned with cutwork designs and women love to flaunt their beautiful Mohan Mala on special occasions.
