In the early years of the 19th century, close friends or family gave the bride-to-be an elegant sterling “coupe de marriage”. The marriage cup, as it is now known, was specially engraved with the names and dates of this very special occasion.
During the wedding ceremony, the couple would drink from the cup as they pledged their troth and on each anniversary, this charming tradition would be repeated.
It is a gift that will pass from generation to generation, rekindling a treasured memory and a touching custom.
