四点金 Si Dian Jin
(Wedding Jewellery)

Given on the wedding day by the mother-in-law, 四点金 Si Dian Jin is one of the most meaningful gifts for the bride. The four-piece jewellery gift set consists of a gold bangle (or bracelet), a necklace, a ring and a pair of earrings representing the four corners of a roof. It’s the groom family’s way of reassuring the bride that she will always have a roof over her head, which makes the jewellery set immeasurably close to the bride’s heart.

Traditionally 四点金 Si Dian Jin is handpicked by the mother-in-law but today, the bride-to-be has the liberty to select the jewellery she fancies.  At Poh Heng, we understand that the bride’s needs and wants have evolved over the years. That’s why our 四点金 Si Dian Jin collections include contemporary design—chic wedding jewellery that lends Tradition a touch of Today.

安床 An Chuang
(Matrimonial Bed-Setting)

安 means safe, so this tradition symbolises securing a harmonious family. On an auspicious day picked from the Chinese almanac, a matchmaker or an elderly lady of  “good fortune” will help set the bed for the bride and groom. She will put on the new bed-linen and pillowcases, place four red packets on the four corners of the bed as well as lay a tray with peanuts, red dates, lotus seeds, two oranges and sweets on the bed.

Finally, a young boy will jump on the bed to help bless the couple with many children. After this ritual, the bridal bed is off limits to everyone and may be touched only by the newlyweds on the wedding day.

How To Look Your
Bridal Best?

From the gown, to the Kua (Chinese traditional bridal costume), right down to the accessories, everything should come together perfectly, like a match made in heaven.
