Mallige in Kannada refers to Jasmine while Moggu refers to bud, hence the name “mallige moggu” or “Jasmine bud” necklace. In Kerala the same traditional jewellery is known as “Mullamottu Mala” which forms an integral part of antique Kerala Bridal Jewellery. It consists of repeated motifs of an elongated or rounded jasmine bud to form a beautiful necklace. This piece of necklace usually forms the middle or last chain in the bridal jewellery depending on its length. It is also called as “Pichimottu Mala” since Pichimottu also means jasmine in malayalam.
