Anniversary Gemstone Gifts
November 13, 2008 by Yelena Jenkins
If your anniversary is around the corner and you are still wondering what to give, go with a gift that she’s guaranteed to love: a beautiful piece of jewelry. Forget the boring etiquette anniversary suggestions – who wants paper for their anniversary? Instead, buy jewelry according to the gemstone anniversary gifting guide. We have summarized the important anniversaries with their corresponding gemstones, and also have a few pretty gift suggestions for each. That’s right – we did all the hard work, all you have to do is take credit and reap the rewards.
First Anniversary: Peridot
Peridot is a beautiful green stone that compliments most skin stones beautifully. Its striking color makes it a popular stone for cocktail rings. Take a peek at a round peridot and diamond cocktail ring, or go big with a large peridot emerald-cut statement ring.
Fifth Anniversary: Sapphire
Sapphire is usually thought of only as a dark blue stone, but it also comes in a pretty pink color. Treat your wife with a gift of classic sapphire and diamond stud earrings or add some sparkle to her wrist with a stylish pink sapphire watch.
Tenth Anniversary: Diamonds
For a ten year anniversary, commemorate your love with diamonds. A beautiful tennis bracelet is the perfect pick. Watch her eyes light up when she sees a stylish and unique bracelet encrusted with white and chocolate colored diamonds.
Twentieth Anniversary: Emerald
Emerald symbolizes faith, love and hope. It’s the perfect gemstone for an anniversary that fondly looks back at years of history together as well as forward to the hope of many more to come. Consider a pair of emerald-cut emerald earrings surrounded by a halo of diamonds. These earrings marry the symbols of love and hope with the symbol of forever – a very romantic promise and perfect gift.
Thirtieth Anniversary: Pearl
Commemorate 30 years of marriage with pearls. If she loves earrings, a set of diamond pearl-drop earrings will thrill her. For women who prefer necklaces, a stunning Tahitian black and South Sea white pearl necklace will be her new favorite piece.
Fortieth Anniversary: Ruby
Rubies are symbols of devotion and desire. A ruby and white gold flowered cross necklace can symbolize your wedding day vows. For a non-religious gift, a ruby and gold ring in an antique setting is a beautiful alternative.
Fiftieth Anniversary: Gold
After 50 years of marriage, honor your Golden Anniversary with – what else – gold. A solid gold mesh necklace is a substantial piece of jewelry that she can wear with almost anything, and a gorgeous solid gold rosary is a keepsake to pass down through generations.
