Selecting anniversary jewelry gifts can be simple with these great ideas for your milestone anniversary. If you need help making a big impression, here is a list of anniversaries for years 15-25 along with gemstone and jewelry suggestions to celebrate your special event.
For your fifteenth anniversary it is traditional to present one another with a piece of jewelry that contains a beautiful red ruby. The ruby has been prized for hundreds of hears by royalties and non-royalty alike. If you are purchasing a gift for your husband, a purchase of a beautiful gold or platinum ring with a ruby stone would look great. You can find them both faceted or in cabochon form. A wonderful gift for the wife would be a lovely pair of ruby stud earrings, a nice ring set in gold or a ruby tennis bracelet.
On your twentieth anniversary it is traditional to present one another with a piece of jewelry that contains a beautiful green emerald and that piece of jewelry would be perfect set in platinum which is the modern gift for the twentieth wedding anniversary. If you can't afford a platinum piece of jewelry then you can always select your gift in a white gold setting.
If you are purchasing a gift for your husband you can find beautiful rings, cuff links and tie pins that have emerald stones set in them. If you are the husband you can purchase your wife a beautiful emerald pendant, a nice ring set in platinum or white gold, or a nice emerald tennis bracelet. Beautiful decorative pins make a stunning gift as well.
You can make your anniversary a special occasion with a lovely piece of jewelry to mark the event. Enjoy spoiling your partner with an amazing gift on your next big anniversary.
