Let’s be real here, when it comes to customary Chinese wedding traditions, it can get tricky fitting them seamlessly into your modern wedding day look and feel.
At the same time, you won’t want to give these time-honoured traditions a miss either.
For a Chinese bride-to-be, being gifted Si Dian Jin, or “four pieces of gold” by her mother-in-law as the betrothal gift is a significant custom of a Chinese wedding.
The set of jewellery, which comprises of a pair of earrings, a necklace, a ring and a bracelet; not only symbolises the acceptance of the bride into the groom’s family, it is also an affirmation that she will be well taken care of once she’s married.

The finer points of 22K gold
We’ve talked about the design, now let’s talk about the value. After all, it is gold that we are dealing with and gold is valuable.
Firstly, 22K gold has a high gold purity of 91.66% fine gold. Thus, it retains its value well – an important consideration if you intend to pass your Si Dian Jin down to your (fortunate) future offspring.
22K gold is also harder than 24K gold which makes it more durable. With regular cleaning and maintenance, you can enjoy wearing it long after your wedding day.
A promise of trust and value
Widely recognized for its affinity with high karatage 22K gold pieces, Poh Heng firmly believes in offering gold jewellery of the highest quality and intrinsic value.
