Celebrate your anniversary with a special jewelry gift, and we’re here to help you find the right one that both you and your partner will love. From the first year of marriage through the golden 50th anniversary, our anniversary gift guide is here to help you pick the perfect piece of jewelry that represents your love and the time you and your partner have been together.
Couples are typically still in the honeymoon phase of their marriage when they reach the milestone first year anniversary. Traditionally, gold is the gift to give for a one year anniversary. You could choose yellow or white gold, or even go with rose gold for something more modern and different. Tell her she’ll always be the one with a simple yellow gold necklace or bracelet for her and maybe gold cufflinks for him. Nothing too extravagant is expected for the first year anniversary.
You’ve come this far so why not treat her to something extra special! Sapphires, which symbolize truth and loyalty, are the traditional gemstone of choice for fifth year anniversaries. Sapphire is found in many colors but the classic choice is blue. If blue’s not your color (or your partner’s), you can also go with white, shades of pink and violet. Another unique choice is a padparadscha sapphire, which is orange with pink tones.
Sapphire is a hard and durable gemstone (it rates 9 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness), so it’s a great choice for any piece of jewelry. Show her you’ll continue to cherish her with a blue sapphire pendant, a blue sapphire bracelet, or design your own piece of jewelry for something unique.
Why not celebrate a decade of love with dazzling diamonds! As the saying going, diamonds are a girl’s best friend. And diamonds are what started it all anyways (ahem, the engagement ring!) so bring things full circle on your tenth wedding anniversary with maybe another diamond ring. This is a great opportunity to add a diamond anniversary band to her engagement ring and wedding ring.
For her, you can also do diamond earrings. The options are endless: diamond stud earrings, halo diamond earrings, diamond cluster earrings, diamond hoop earrings, drop earrings, chandelier earrings, ear crawlers…you get the picture. For him, maybe consider a diamond ring or, if he wears an earring, a diamond stud.
An emerald is the traditional stone of a twentieth wedding anniversary. It’s a fragile gemstone though, so its not recommended to put a emerald in a piece of jewelry that will be worn on a daily basis. Emeralds are a classic, elegant stone that should be saved for special occasions. Emerald necklaces always sure make a statement, and show how much you love your partner, but you can also choose between emerald earrings,
An emerald is also the gemstone for a thirty-fifth wedding anniversary.
The golden jubilee calls for gold jewelry! For him, maybe buy a gold watch, and for her, the choices are limitless. Maybe gold earrings? You can also opt for plain gold in yellow, white or rose, maybe set with diamonds and/or gemstones.
