Gutta in Telugu means "a shoal of small fish", and Pusalu means "beads". Set with rubies, emeralds, and diamonds, the gold necklace is fringed with bunches of small pearls. The Guttapusalu originated in areas close to the ancient pearl fisheries along the Southern coast in India. This is a uniquely designed bridal necklace and definitely an important part of a South Indian brides wedding ensemble.
