In the olden days, Si Dian Jin sets usually consisted of big-sized gold pieces. More was seen as better, so using more gold in the designs represent opulence and generosity, which is ideal for a traditional Chinese betrothal gift.
Unlike our ancestors, young couples these days do not really fancy the idea of chunky, heavy gold. Instead, many young brides prefer to opt for a diamond-clad Si Dian Jin or one in the shade of rose gold.
The popularity of gold for wedding jewellery
With that said, did you know that 999 Pure Gold has been a preferred choice for bridal jewellery among all other types of materials for generations due to its value? Beyond just being a marker for success and wealth, gold is also a form of currency that is internationally recognised and sold by weight, retaining its value throughout time.
Whether it’s contemporary or traditional designs, gold serves as a unanimous favourite used to celebrate marital unions and convey bountiful blessings for the couple. Let’s explore 4 reasons why gold remains the choice for Si Dian Jin.
1. Gold represents wealth
Apart from adorning a unique colour that’s different from other elements, gold holds a deep meaning in many cultures. The warm colour of gold symbolises good luck and prosperity. Even till today, it has long been seen as a highly valued material that represents wealth and luxury.
Si Dian Jin is gifted to represent the acceptance and welcoming of the bride into the groom’s family and household. Additionally, it also signifies his wealth and ability to provide for his bride. As such, gold perfectly suits the symbol of gifting Si Dian Jin to the bride.

2. Gold can be melted down for monetary support
Gold is a universal currency which many people invest in as a way to protect their wealth. In times of crisis, gold is a useful asset to possess. These crisis situations include episodes where currencies collapse or the economy crashes. During times like these, having gold as your asset can bail you out fast.
Gold is highly valued and can be melted down in return for a large sum of money. It’s the only asset with universal liquidity, which explains why it’s so popular among investors. Of course, the decision to opt for gold Si Dian Jin should be based on its symbolism and meaning. But if you’re looking beyond the sentimental value of the jewellery set, investing in gold Si Dian Jin also lends as potential monetary support in the future.
3. Gold can be kept as an heirloom

4. Gold is an excellent protection against inflation
Gold has long been an effective protection against inflation as its value rises in parallel to the cost of living. When inflation occurs and fiat currency loses its power, gold takes over as the universal currency and rises in value as does everything else.
Since gold has maintained its value throughout the ages, people also see gold as a way to preserve their wealth and overcome in times of inflation. As such, getting a gold Si Dian Jin can be viewed as a good store of value to pass on from one generation to the next.
