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
    daughter-in-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.

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.
