Introduction

If you have ever been to an Indian wedding, you will know how important gold jewellery is to the entire ceremony. You literally cannot have a Sri Lankan bride if she's not bedecked in glittering gold jewellery of every kind. Let's take a closer look at this deep-rooted connection between gold jewellery and Sri Lankan weddings.

Religious beliefs

• Strong religious beliefs are at the heart of this tradition. • The new bride is said to personify prosperity and it is believed that she will bring wealth to the family. • Hence, it's not uncommon for the bride's family to look through millions of gold pendants and gold bangles designs to pick the perfect one.

Family Traditions

• Weddings are a time for family traditions and rituals. In Sri Lanka, this more importantly involves a time when the ancestral jewellery gets passed down to a new generation. • Mothers gift gold jewellery to their daughters on the wedding day as an auspicious token. On the other hand, the mother-in-law gifts the daughterin-law gold jewellery as a symbol of welcome into the family. • Gold by its nature signifies prosperity and longevity, both ideas which blend well with the concept of enduring family traditions. https://www.devijewellers.lk/


Gifting

• Gifting has and always will be a very important part of Sri Lankan weddings. Gifts are given to not only the couple but also other family members who attend the wedding. It is a time to reach out and show your love through gifts. • Gold has always been a very important aspect of this gifting. While other gifts like clothes, silver and more recently, gadgets, are common elements, gifting gold jewellery is the most important aspect.

The Romantic Touch

Nothing speaks the language of love in South East Asia as this auspicious and gorgeous yellow metal. Which is why gold pendant designs and gold necklaces are in such massive demand during wedding season. While gifting a diamond ring is something we have adopted from western cultures, gold has always been considered a strong and powerful romantic gift.
