Wedding Dowry

Wedding Dowry

A dowry is a transfer of parental property, gifts or money at the marriage of a daughter. Dowry contrasts with the related concepts of bride price and dower. While bride price or bride service is a payment by the groom or his family to the bride's parents, dowry is the wealth transferred from the bride's family to the groom or his family, ostensibly for the bride.

Similarly, dower is the property settled on the bride herself, by the groom at the time of marriage, and which remains under her ownership and control.

Si Dian Jin (四点金)

Si Dian Jin (四点金) is one such tradition, and many Chinese families continue to practice it till today. 


Si Dian Jin (四点金) literally translates to “Four points of gold”. Si Dian Jin (四点金) - which comprises a set of earrings, bangle, ring and necklace, is a wedding custom where the groom’s mother would present the bride with this 'gift' to welcome her into the family and let her know that she will be well taken care of by them after marriage.

Si Dian Jin (四点金)

四点金 was typically given in solid yellow gold in the past, many young brides hold the view of Si Dian Jin 四点金 being merely a custom, finding it hard to appreciate the jewellery or wear them again even after their big day. However, there are many modern options like diamonds/pearls available at Ivy Masterpiece.

Ivy Masterpiece 18k Si Dian Jin collection consists of the most versatile and stylish designs. Wearable, chic pieces that can be styled effortlessly with your everyday outfits, whilst paying homage to the intricate beauty of traditional Si Dian Jin jewellery.
