Every wedding anniversary is a milestone for you to celebrate your love and commitment with each other. But finding great anniversary gifts for her year after year can be a daunting task. While tradition offers paper, tin and china as gifts for the 1st, 10th and 20th anniversary, there aren’t many people who would be over the moon about receiving paper gifts for their first wedding anniversary. Read on to get inspired by the key anniversary jewellery gifts that will delight her.
Your first year as a married couple is certainly worth celebrating in style. A gift of gold necklace or earrings symbolises the eternity of your love and is a perfect present to mark the occasion.
Although leather and silk are said to be the traditional gifts, pearls are considered more desirable modern gifts to give for the 3rd and the 12th wedding anniversary. Intrinsically linked with romance and beauty, they are a unique work of art taking years to form. Pearl jewellery such as a baroque pearl bracelet or a pair of pearl earrings is a wonderful choice for the woman you love. It is important to select fine quality pearls as their beauty and lustre will be long lasting.
Sapphire is thought to bring joy, good health and inner peace. A gift of jewellery with classic blue sapphire is great for both every day and special occasions. Other colours including violet, orange, pink and green are less expensive than the blue ones.
Diamonds are the modern anniversary gift for ten years of marriage. The diamond embodies the resilience and strength of your relationship. Jewellery gifts such as a diamond pendant necklace symbolise everlasting love.
The beautiful emerald is a classic gem to mark this special milestone. As a symbol of hope, emerald has long been associated with love. Ideas for emerald jewellery include necklaces and earrings set with white gold.
Celebrate your 30 years of happiness with pearl wedding anniversary gifts. As a beloved traditional gift for the 30th wedding anniversary, pearls represent the inner beauty and strength of your marriage. Choose something extra special made with gold or diamonds. A luxury 18ct gold pearl necklace set would be a perfect gift to commemorate this occasion.
Ruby is both a traditional and modern gift to celebrate your 40 years of life together. Its fierce red expresses passion and essence of love.
The 50th anniversary is also known as the gold wedding anniversary. Gold jewellery is considered the most appropriate present to celebrate the marriage of half a century together. 18ct yellow or white gold jewellery with your wife’s favourite gems is a classic and thoughtful gift for this special milestone.
