Decked Out in Wedding Silver

In migrant Miao culture, silver is more than just a piece of jewelry—its symbolism runs deep through tradition, history and experience. As a migrant minority, the Miao people historically used silver as a method to carry their wealth. Today, it is considered a good luck charm and a symbol of high status. Parents begin to collect pieces of silver for their daughters from the moment they are born. On their wedding day, Miao women wear incredible headdresses, accessories and clothing handmade with silver.

This Great Big Story was inspired by Genesis.
