Gemstone Anniversary Jewelry for Milestone Years

Anniversary celebrations

Anniversaries are a celebration of your love and the life you are building together. The day to day interactions in a marriage are the truest measure of your compatibility, but once a year it is worth pausing to reflect on your journey and celebrate all those little moments. Key ingredients like laughter, kindness, understanding and openness are what carry you through the challenges of married life. Whether you are celebrating your first anniversary, a 5 year anniversary, or a 50 year anniversary, take time to think about how to let her know how much she means to you.

The origins of anniversary gifts

FInding thoughtful gifts for anniversaries can feel intimidating. Emily Post understood this when she created a list of anniversary gifts in 1922, which included paper, cloth, leather, flowers, and wood for the first five years. While this list may have been affordable, practical for young couples and open-ended enough for creativity, it leaves a lot to be desired in the realm of romance.

10th Anniversary - Diamond

A symbol of eternal love, diamonds are beautiful on their own or combined with other gemstones. For a 10 year anniversary gift perhaps you want to pair diamonds with the gemstone from the month you were married, her birthstone, or family birthstones to keep her loved ones close. A traditional 10th anniversary gift is an anniversary ring to be worn above the engagement and wedding ring.
