A time-honoured tradition

The gift exchange between bride and groom the day after the wedding is an ancient tradition that goes back hundreds of years. In many places in Europe, the tradition is known as the ‘morning gift’, a form of insurance for the bride - a way for her to survive financially if she should end up alone. It was also a way to thank the bride for the gift of her virginity. It is from there that the idea of the ‘morning gift’ originated, because it was always presented to the bride the morning after the wedding.

From money and land to jewellery

This gift originally consisted of a sum of money or a small piece of land. Today, it is most often a piece of jewellery. It could be a necklace with a beautiful pendant, or a ring or bracelet. Preferably with a diamond or another, more colourful, gemstone. It could also be a pearl necklace. Men usually receive a pair of cufflinks. Jewellery is the most customary choice, and it is wonderful to receive an exclusive and traditional gift that will last.
