Does a husband give his wife a wedding gift?
A wedding day present from a husband to his new wife is an age-old tradition in many cultures worldwide. It has become a popular “optional tradition” for the bridegroom to give his bride something significant on their wedding day. Although customary, such a gift is not a “must”. And grooms put much thought into what would make an ideal gift for the woman who is to be his life-long partner.
Jewelry makes the best wedding gift
A wedding evokes feelings of love, joy, and excitement and is synonymous with romantic moments and beautiful traditions. How can you mark this day for your bride so she will always have a symbol of your love and commitment that also brings back fond memories of the first day of your life together as a couple? You can give her a beautiful, thoughtful gift that will stand the test of time.
Gifts of flowers and garments or an experience such as a luxury spa treatment or a honeymoon cruise are great gifts for your new bride. But if you are looking for something that will capture memories of her prized day and remain with her forever, jewelry is your best bet.
Wedding morning gifts
When should you give your bride's wedding gift?
You can give your bride a jewelry gift just before the wedding or at the reception/party after the ceremony to highlight your life together as husband and wife. You could also give her a jewelry gift on the morning after the wedding.
What are wedding morning gifts?
Traditionally, a wedding morning gift is a present from the man to his wife on their first morning together after the wedding. In medieval Anglo-Saxon times, a husband gave his wife a “morgen gifu”, which means “morning gift”, after their first night together. The morgen-gifu was land or other property, but often a piece of silver or gold jewelry set with precious gems. In Sweden, couples continue this giving and acceptance of morgen-gifu as a symbol of their loving beginning of married life.
The tradition continues; modern grooms-to-be are always looking for inspiring ideas for wedding morning gifts to give their brides. If you are soon to be married and want to buy beautiful and unique jewelry to gift your wife on the first morning after the wedding, we advise you to consider your options well in advance.
How to choose the perfect wedding day present?
To buy the perfect gift for your bride-to-be, you must be prepared with a few things.
Is there some jewelry she’s been wanting? Often, a woman might think of earrings, a bangle/bracelet, or a necklace that she would like to wear but for some reason has not bought any for herself. Now would be the perfect time to buy her something she has wanted for a while. And you get brownie points for noticing and fulfilling her secret wish.
What are her tastes in jewelry? Is she partial to earrings or rings, bangles or bracelets, pendants or necklaces? Does she likes gold jewelry, or would she prefer silver? Is she a woman who likes classical/vintage designs or sleek minimalistic lines? Would she like plain jewelry or something studded with gemstones?
How much do you want to spend? You might be shopping on a budget, or the sky might be the limit. Regardless, as long as you are clear about this, you can easily find the perfect wedding gift in our designer jewelry collections.

You can never go wrong with a jewelry gift for your bride on your wedding day. Jewelry is beautiful and long-lasting and, as a wedding gift, can be a store of fond memories for both of you on this important day of your lives. Women worldwide love jewelry, and a gift of designer jewelry on their wedding day will put a smile on their faces.
Jewelry wedding gifts in silver and gold
Your gift to your bride could be a delicate pair of earrings, an engraved bracelet, or a letter necklace. Browse our iconic collections for delightful choices in gold, silver, or plated jewelry that your bride will treasure for years to come so it becomes an heirloom that could be passed down and loved by future generations.
♦ If it is silver jewelry you are looking for, buy hallmarked silver jewelry like sterling silver that comes with the “925/SS” stamp.
♦ If you look at gold jewelry, you will find eye-catching pieces in yellow, white, and rose gold in purities ranging from 9k to 22k.
♦ For more affordable options, check out our 24k or 18k gold vermeil demi-fine jewelry collection.
Gemstone jewelry as wedding gifts
Gemstone jewelry is grand and luxurious and is bound to please your bride. Your choices range from breathtakingly beautiful pieces of jewelry set with precious gems such as ruby, emerald, and sapphire and semi-precious gemstones like topaz, garnet, onyx, or tourmalines.
Diamond and pearl jewelry are considered classic wedding jewelry; your bride would be delighted to receive a pair of emerald earrings, a rope of freshwater pearls, or a necklace with her initial zodiac sign or constellation set with diamonds.
Designer silver and zirconia jewelry are demi-fine pieces of “affordable luxury”. A tastefully designed and handcrafted sterling silver cuff bracelet plated with 18-karat gold and set with high-quality facet-cut white or coloured zirconia is just as desirable.
Jewelry styles for wedding gifts
Earrings make fine wedding gifts. How about a pair of sculptural 9k gold earrings in an organic setting with raw diamonds? Or a pair of dazzling diamond ear studs that match her engagement/wedding ring? Choose from our range of classic, handcrafted, and sculptural earrings in silver, gold, and rhodium- and gold-plated ear studs, ear cuffs, hoops, and huggies or threader and earring pendants in gorgeous designs and styles—the choices are vast and mesmerising.
Bangles and bracelets are excellent wedding gifts too. Buy your lady a stunning tennis bracelet set with diamonds in a choice of yellow, white, or rose gold, or a cuff bracelet with gems such as pearls, emeralds, sapphires, or opals. If you want something modern and off-beat, may we suggest a bracelet of colourful semi-precious beads or a beaded and braided bracelet comprising gemstone lock beads and highlighted with 18k gold and diamond accents?
A necklace is a lovely wedding gift for your bride. In our collections, you will see necklaces in many styles—short or long, with or without pendants, simple or elaborate, plain or gem-studded. Depending on her tastes, you could get her a silver, gold, or diamond-studded letter pendant/necklace; a zodiac necklace in gold with her Sun sign as a pendant; or a gold-plated or sterling silver chain with a flower pendant.
Browse and find the perfect one for your bride in silver or gold that is either plain or embellished with diamonds, pearls, or other gemstones. Steal your heart with a diamond necklace in a chic and edgy design, or go classic with a string of lustrous freshwater pearls or pretty semi-precious beads.
