售卖金银首饰的商店。

DEFINITION

Noun

A shop that sells gold and silver jewellery.

由来
  • 金庄也称金店或金铺,据说潮州人一般将这类金饰店称为金庄。
  • 在三十年代,新加坡牛车水的大马路,即桥南路(South Bridge Road)一带曾经拥有许多金庄,因此被大家称为“金铺街”。
  • 每家金铺一般聘有打金师傅,负责打造或修改金饰。早期的金庄以售卖金银首饰、珍珠、玉器为主。
  • 在早期,有的人也会将自己的储蓄寄托给他们信任的金庄或当店。他们不存入银行的原因,一方面是对此没有太多的认识,另一方面担心银行不可靠。
  • ETYMOLOGY
    • Such shops are also known in Mandarin as “金店” or “金铺”. It is said that the Teochews often called these goldsmith shops “金庄”. 

    • In the 1930s, there used to be many goldsmith shops along South Bridge Road in Chinatown. Hence, the street used to be known as “金铺街” (goldsmith street). 

    • Each of these shops would hire a goldsmith who was responsible for making or altering the gold jewellery. In the olden days, these shops mainly sold gold and silver jewellery, pearls and jades. 

    • In those days, some people would also deposit their savings in  goldsmith shops or pawn shops that they trusted. They did not deposit their money in banks because they lacked a good understanding of these institutions and were worried that banks would be unreliable.
