For centuries, Si Dian Jin has been an essential part of Chinese weddings in Singapore. A symbol of luck and prosperity, Si Dian Jin is traditionally given to the bride by the groom’s family during the Guo Da Li ceremony to welcome her into the family.
Today, Si Dian Jin is still an important, cherished gift consisting of a pair of gold earrings, bracelet, necklace, and bangle. In fact, more modern brides are choosing to wear these pieces out as everyday jewellery. This is why present designers are now looking to the past for inspiration to modernise the necklace, earring, bangle, and bracelet.
DESIGNS FOR THE NEW GENERATION
No longer bound by traditional designs, the design of Si Dian Jin jewellery pieces has evolved to reflect contemporary trends, with a unique mix of classic Chinese aesthetics with modern design elements. Whether it’s a pair of earrings like the Love Eternity Lily Earrings that reflect your personality or a necklace like the Swan Love 999 Pure Gold Necklace that tells a story, the new designs can add meaning to an already timeless piece.
WIDE SELECTION OF METALS
While traditional Si Dian Jin are typically made of yellow 999 gold like the Dragon & Phoenix Dual Happiness 999 Pure Gold Bangle, there is an increasing popularity of alternative metal materials and colours that can add a unique spin to the jewellery pieces. Rose gold, for example, has a cooler tone that offers a soft, feminine touch. White gold is another popular choice, and it can be particularly striking when combined with diamonds. Silver is also used in Si Dian Jin, offering a more inexpensive option for those on a budget.
However, the warm-hued yellow gold has always remained in style. This timeless material is also an excellent investment as it holds its value over time and can be passed down to the next generation.
MODERN MOTIFS FOR A FRESH LOOK
Contemporary Si Dian Jin designs have taken a more modern approach. Some popular designs include nature-inspired motifs, such as the Enchanted Floral Rose 999 Gold Earring. From sentimental charms to fashionable statement pieces, these pieces combine the best of both worlds–the sleek lines and clean aesthetic of contemporary design with the timeless appeal of traditional Si Dian Jin jewellery.
