Though our forte may lie in custom bridal jewelry, don’t think Knox Jewelers has omitted gifts for an equally important annual occurrence, the wedding anniversary. If you would like to create a meaningful one-of-a-kind gift this year, colorful gemstones offer a wealthy avenue of inspiration and symbolism. Using the modern wedding anniversary gemstone list, we can help you find or custom build an amazing piece of jewelry for any anniversary you are celebrating this year!
It has long been a tradition to gift a certain gemstone in commemoration of an anniversary. Though the designated gems may have adjusted through time, due to popularity or availability, the sentiment of giving a rare stone to the one you love has not altered in its endearment. Immortalizing each year together with a token of gemstones is the perfect way to express your adoration and continuing commitment.
In coordination with the most current gemstone anniversary list, noted below are selected gifts for years one through ten. Starting the tradition of gifting gemstones is the perfect way to celebrate every year spent with the love of your life.
First Anniversary: Gold
Gold, the precious metal, is usually recommended as the gift for the first anniversary. Thoughtfully constructed to symbolize the golden glow of your first year together. One of our signature custom created unique bands, like the design featured above, made in yellow or rose gold, would make a beautiful compliment to her wedding set. If you prefer a piece centered with a gemstone, there are several available that offer a golden hue. Yellow sapphire, yellow diamond, citrine or topaz could all make a dazzling alternative.
Second Anniversary: Garnet
Though many associate garnet with a deep red color, the mineral is actually available in a vast array of hues including oranges and greens. This allows you to choose a garnet that most reminds you of your loved one.
Third Anniversary: Pearls
Pearl jewelry is staple in anyone’s gemstone wardrobe. Your third anniversary would be the perfect time to gift a classic pair of pearl studs or a uncommon versatile bracelet like pictured above. Pearls are adaptable to any taste and personality.
Fourth Anniversary: Blue Topaz
The spellbinding color of blue topaz would make a wonderful addition to any custom creation you have in mind. If blue is not your desired shade, like garnet, topaz is available in several other hues.
Fifth Anniversary: Sapphire
Blue sapphire has long been a symbol of faithfulness. What better way to celebrate an anniversary than with a declaration of commitment in the guise of a beautiful blue sapphire custom created band. Sapphire is durable and can be featured in any Knox created piece.
Sixth Anniversary: Amethyst
Long been associated with royalty, purple amethyst is the ultimate anniversary gift for the queen or king in your life. Though only available in a limited range of colors, the mineral can be found in large crystals allowing custom piece made with many carat sizes and shapes.
Seventh Anniversary: Onyx
A diversion from the run of precious gemstones, the seventh wedding anniversary boasts a semi-precious stone, onyx. Stylish black onyx compliments and coordinates with any collection of jewelry.
Eight Anniversary: Tourmaline
The mineral tourmaline, the gemstone tied to the eight anniversary, is naturally occurring in any hue. This gives you the freedom to build your perfect custom piece around your favorite color. Tourmaline’s shades are rich and vibrant, lending passion to any gift of jewelry.
Ninth Anniversary: Lapis Lazuli
Lapis lazuli is a aggregate of several minerals include pyrite and calcite. The coming together of several elements to make one beautiful stone is a wonderful representation for a ninth wedding anniversary gift. This semiprecious gemstone has been prized for centuries due to its intense deep blue color.
Tenth Anniversary: Diamond
What better way to celebrate a huge milestone in your married life than with a immensely symbolic gemstone like diamond. Your love is one of a kind and extremely rare, just like a diamond. It is also the hardest mineral on earth, representing your enduring bond. Your tenth anniversary would be the perfect time to add a custom diamond anniversary band to her wedding set or gift her another everyday essential like gorgeous diamond stud earrings.
