Traditional Gemstone Anniversary Rings by Year
Anniversary bands are a great way to express your love to your significant other. It is a tradition for the first five years to have a metal/stone “represent” your love for one another. Book Your Appointment
One Year Anniversary - Gold. Kicking off the first anniversary, we have Gold! The first anniversary is the sweetest - giving your partner the gift of a stackable gold band is a great kick-off gift to start the rest of your lives.
Second Anniversary - Red Garnet. Although garnet comes in many colors - including green, yellow, and pink - the color most associated with garnet is red. It is a relatively hard stone that can be used in any jewelry piece or design and truly pops when it is paired with white gold or platinum! A beautiful sentiment to give to your partner.
Third Anniversary - Pearls. Naturally beautiful, pearls are a traditional classic gift to your partner through earrings, rings, and pearl necklaces. Pearls can be natural or cultured - with natural pearls being slightly more expensive than their counterparts. Pearls are slightly more fragile than other materials, so take precaution as to where you are wearing these precious stones.
Fourth Anniversary - Blue Topaz. Like Garnet, Topaz can be found in a variety of colors, but blue topaz was originally the most rare of all of the colors. There are many different shades of blue topaz that can be paired with most metals to look radiant. Topaz is a harder stone - being a bit more durable than other stones.
Fifth Anniversary - Sapphire. Like other stones, sapphire can be found in many different colors, although the classic choice is blue. Other colors include white, shades of pink, and violet. A sapphire is treated to ensure that the color remains permanently throughout the years. This is the perfect “right hand ring” gift, as it has a very durable stone.
Celebrating your anniversary with your partner is one of the joys of being married - being able to give your partner a gift that they will cherish forever is second to none. Giving a ring represents the sentiment of love - neverending, cyclical, and encompassing.
