Jade jewelry has been an integral part of Chinese culture for thousands of years, and the fusion of traditional Si Dian Jin (四点金) with contemporary designs is a testament to its timeless appeal. In this article, we will explore the history and significance of Si Dian Jin, contemporary jade jewelry, and the innovative blend of these two styles.
Si Dian Jin (四点金), which translates to “Four Touches of Gold,” is a set of wedding jewelry that is also part of the Guo Da Li (过大礼). It is steeped in history, characterized by its auspicious symbolism and significance of a union between two families. Traditionally the groom’s mother presents the set to the bride, signifying acceptance and welcome into the groom’s family. The curved roof symbol represented by the character “jin (金)” represents the promise that the bride will always have a roof over her head.
The set of jewelry consists of a ring, a pair of earrings, a necklace, and a bracelet, with each bearing its own heartwarming symbolism that wishes the newlyweds an auspicious start on their new phase of life together!
