Bridal Jewellery & Si Dian Jin (四点金) Sets

A bride’s Si Dian Jin set emerges as a treasured betrothal gift, symbolising a warm welcome into a new family and heralding a future of prosperity, peace, and eternal love.

Our collection marries rich Asian heritage with the allure of modern design, offering a sophisticated array of bridal jewellery that resonates with today's brides. Si Dian Jin, translating to "4 Touches of Gold", comprises four meticulously crafted pieces:

  1. Necklace: Worn closest to heart, a necklace is the part of the set that piques interest first. It also comes with the consideration of the neck line of the bride’s dream wedding dress, and how a necklace’s design may complement it on the wedding day, and surely, the many special days beyond.
  2. Earrings: These pieces complement the necklace with their refined beauty, crafted to accentuate the bride's features. They add a touch of sparkle and elegance, ensuring the bride radiates joy and sophistication.
  3. Bracelet: Gracing the wrist, the bracelet symbolises the unending love and support from the bride's new family. It acts as a tangible reminder of the bonds that her marriage has created and the collective warmth enveloping her.
  4. Ring: Akin to wedding bands, the ring chosen for the Si Dian Jin set signifies the bond between a couple. It is a marker of their commitment and the enduring love they share, serving as a precious emblem of their union.

B.P. de Silva's Si Dian Jin collections are crafted from the finest 18K gold - 18K white Gold, 18K yellow gold, and 18K rose gold, with some designs in the brand’s signature colour medley, a mix of hues.18K gold is an exceptional choice for lasting keepsakes and family heirlooms, with r its enduring quality and brilliance.

FAQs about Si Dian Jin Sets

What do Si Dian Jin sets symbolise in Singapore?

Traditionally, the Si Dian Jin set embodies the heartfelt welcome extended by a mother-in-law to the bride, marking her formal acceptance into the family. This age-old tradition, deeply ingrained in Singapore’s Chinese culture, sees the Si Dian Jin being bestowed upon the bride during the betrothal ceremony, or Guo Da Li (过大礼), which takes place weeks before the wedding. 

On the day of the wedding, these jewellery are worn with pride, and thereafter, they ascend to the status of cherished family heirlooms, preserved and passed down through generations.

Each piece of jewellery within the Si Dian Jin set carries its own unique symbolism, echoing well-wishes and hopes for the bride’s new life. For instance, a necklace might represent the harmonious melding of two families, while earrings could signify the perfect pairing, reflecting the beauty of the couple’s union.

In contemporary times, the symbolism of Si Dian Jin has beautifully evolved, blending tradition with more contemporary values. Nowadays, it's not uncommon for brides and their future mothers-in-law to embark on the journey of selecting a Si Dian Jin set together. This modern practice adds a layer of personal significance, turning the selection process into a bonding experience that symbolises the joining of families and the shared excitement for the future.

Moreover, modern Si Dian Jin sets have also adapted to contemporary tastes, without forsaking their rich cultural heritage. They stand as a testament to the adaptability and enduring nature of traditional customs, embracing modern design while still encapsulating the deep-rooted meanings and blessings of the past.

This evolution of the Si Dian Jin not only honours the tradition but also ensures its relevance and cherished place in today's matrimonial celebrations.

What’s the difference between traditional and modern Si Dian Jin sets?

The distinction between traditional and modern Si Dian Jin sets lies in their design elements and symbolism, catering to the evolving tastes of Singapore’s brides while maintaining a connection to cultural heritage.

  • Traditional Sets: Mostly crafted in 916 (22kt) or 999 (24kt) yellow gold, traditional bridal jewellery sets feature intricate motifs with acultural significance, such as the auspicious dragon-and-phoenix pairings.
  • Modern Sets: These sets blend personal style with cherished heritage, allowing brides to incorporate elements that reflect both their own and their partner's backgrounds. For instance, incorporating blue Sapphire earrings may offer a nod to the Western tradition of 'wearing that something blue', or it may signify a memory by the beach, a special note for the couple. Modern designs marry personal style with other cultural wedding traditions.

Whether traditional or modern, each Si Dian Jin set is a testament to the bride's unique identity, alongside the rich traditions that accompany her into a new chapter of life.

When to start looking for Si Dian Jin sets?

Given that the Si Dian Jin is traditionally presented to the bride during the Guo Da Li ceremony four weeks before the wedding, it's wise to begin the search well in advance. This ensures ample time for personalisation, be it through slight customisation or fully bespoke fine jewellery, which can take anywhere from 8 to 12 weeks depending on complexity.

Many brides start gathering ideas from the moment of engagement, using platforms like Pinterest to inspire their selections. Starting early not only allows for thoughtful decision-making but also ensures the Si Dian Jin perfectly encapsulates the bride's story and preferences.

Remember, it’s never too soon to embark on this journey, as these pieces are treasured keepsakes meant to last a lifetime. Ready to find bridal jewellery that speaks to your heart? Schedule an appointment at our Flagship Boutique to explore our wedding jewellery collections.
