it is part of my culture that a bride would be worn a specific necklace (chain) called 'karsemani' either by her mother or mother in law to signify that she is married. it is something like wearing a wedding ring. the ceremony takes place momentarily after the bridegroom said oath during the nikah ceremony.

i have mine too...a chain with red 'pavalam' and 'karumani'. since we have been so malaysianised and my husband is very westernised in his taste, we had both the ring and karsemani. i wear it all the time until a few days ago i realised that one end quite gave way and need to be repaired. my son loves to pull it at all times but now, i feel quite weird not wearing it.
