The Gutta Pusalu is a classic necklace design from Andhra Pradesh , and is a piece of heritage jewellery . Pusalu means “beads” and gutta means “a shoal of small fish”. The necklace is named so because it is fringed with bunches of small pearls resembling “a shoal of small fish” (gutta). This design originated in areas close to the ancient pearl fisheries along the Coromandel coast of India.
This is further magnified with patterns to adorn the base area of the necklace. A guttapusalu necklace can be found in any length and style. These looks royal when made in gold with beads, ornate stones or pearls to border the lining. These are available in the form of chokers/ short necklaces, and even long version necklaces.
