Summertime has traditionally been the most popular time for weddings. These days, weddings are spaced throughout the year. This just goes to show: Love Knows No Season!
To commemorate a relationship, there is nothing more meaningful and symbolic than jewelry. Looking down at that ring on the finger, fondly touching the necklace worn on the wedding day, or wearing a pair of cufflinks that first were worn with the wedding tux – all of these bring joyful flashbacks all through the years.
Regardless of how many years you’ve been together, or the path you’ve traveled, there is no time like “now” to celebrate love. We have all learned that there is nothing more precious. It brings us to the question: what to give your special someone to celebrate your anniversary?
In looking for a gift for her, consider lifestyle and aesthetic. You should not feel bound by rules such as 30th anniversary diamond, 40th anniversary ruby or 50th anniversary gold. But just in case, these are some suggestions. These days, every year you are together is worthy of celebrating in whatever way you choose.
Those who prefer a traditional or classic look might cherish a diamond band, perhaps five diamonds across the top of the finger, or a simple eternity band, with the diamonds traveling all the way around in a “never-ending circle.” Does she have a favorite pair of diamond earrings yet? This would be the ideal time to add that to her wardrobe.
For the woman who likes to shake things up a bit, consider a baguette diamond band, or a band of “fancy” shaped diamonds, such as ovals or emerald cuts.
Or move to something with a burst of color, such as these beautiful sapphire and diamond bands; or combine two colors of gold, for a really fresh and modern look that will tell her she’s kept up with the times perfectly.
A woman who spends her days ferrying the kids to soccer and the pool might enjoy something simple she can wear every day – diamond earring or a simple everyday necklace. For the younger, trendier woman, a bolo-style bracelet with diamonds across the top might be just right. It’s a slightly casual new look, but still speaks to love and is a brilliant choice!
The lucky woman who has retired and spends time traveling to far-off places would definitely appreciate something easy to pack, worry-free, and that complements any outfit, whether touring the streets of Venice or seeing a show in Vegas. A gemstone necklace can be worn daily while traveling. Lightweight, comfortable cultured pearls will do quite nicely in a length that may be doubled.
If she’s looking forward to going out for a very special anniversary dinner, you might consider adding to the festivity of that evening by presenting her with a diamond pendant or necklace, which will capture the lights of the restaurant and shimmer almost as bright as her smile.
Don’t forget, jewelry marks the moment for guys, too! Again, consider lifestyle and wardrobe. We have gents’ gifts ranging from rings and bands – which can be customized to add diamonds, or colored gemstones for a very updated look – to chains, bracelets and tie tacs, in fresh new materials as well as precious metals. If he’s into sports, show him you’re his #1 fan, with a tie bar, money clip or cufflinks in his favorite team’s logo.
In short, there’s something for every couple to celebrate life’s most special moments. Choose the gift that speaks from your heart.
