Traditional First Anniversary Gift:  Gold

Fittingly representative of the golden first year of marriage, the traditional first anniversary gift is gold! Gold jewelry can be a beautiful way to celebrate one year of marriage, be it an anniversary ring to stack with the wedding and engagement rings, or a bracelet, earrings, or necklace.

Traditional Fifth Anniversary Gift:  Sapphire

Sapphires have historically symbolized truth and loyalty. Blue sapphires have appropriately become the traditional gemstone to celebrate the fifth wedding anniversary. Sapphire jewelry can be a meaningful gift, and there are many hues if deep blue does not fit your mate’s style. You can find sapphires that range in color from peach to yellow!

Traditional Tenth Anniversary Gift:  Diamond

Ten years of marriage certainly deserves a celebration, and what better gem is there than a diamond to do just that? Diamonds are the world’s strongest and most durable gemstone and can be an incredibly thoughtful anniversary gift to honor the longevity of your marriage. The most traditional diamond anniversary gift is a diamond anniversary ring, but you could also gift a diamond necklace, diamond earrings, or a tennis bracelet.

Traditional Fifteenth Anniversary Gift:  Ruby

Symbolizing royalty and wealth for thousands of years, the mesmerizing and coveted ruby is not only beautiful but also inspiring.  The ruby’s fiery hue inspires passion, love, courage, and devotion while guarding its wearer’s wealth and rank. Rubies are a beautiful fifteenth wedding anniversary gift that will celebrate your deep love for each other.

Traditional Twentieth Anniversary Gift:  Emerald

The traditional gemstone to celebrate the twentieth wedding anniversary is the emerald. Emerald symbolizes vitality, honesty, and fidelity, making it a fitting celebration of 20 years of marriage! Emerald jewelry can be dazzling, especially when paired with diamond accents.

Unique Anniversary Rings and Wedding Ring Upgrades

Is it time to give your wife a new ring to represent your beautiful years of marriage together? An anniversary band can be a beautiful way to celebrate your marriage. Anniversary bands can either be worn on the ring finger and stacked with the engagement and wedding rings, or worn on a separate finger. One way to upgrade a ring that will surely be appreciated is to upgrade the center stone to be larger or a better quality cut or clarity. Another idea is to upgrade her wedding ring or band to something of higher quality, or that fits her current style. If her ring no longer fits on her finger, you could reuse some of the elements from her original ring in a new custom piece.
