Whilst everyone is aware of what gemstone is associated with the month of their birth, gemstone jewellery is actually an excellent buy for your anniversary too. In fact, there are particular gemstone types associated with each year of your relationship, but which one is applicable to you and your partner? Here we take you through five years and beyond so you can discover a gemstone jewellery piece to make your upcoming anniversary extra special.
1st Anniversary is Gold
Celebrating your first year together is always a big one, and what better way to mark your new relationship than with new jewellery. Gold jewellery is the traditional gift associated with the one year mark, however, for those looking to deviate slightly (for their budgetís sake), sterling silver jewellery pieces are a beautiful and diverse option. Our gold plated, sterling silver Rajola jewellery ticks both boxes!
2nd Year Anniversary is Garnet
The deep red colour of the garnet symbolises passion and love which are two words many couples would associate with their second year together. Whilst the all-consuming lust felt in your first year may be petering out, a gift of garnet will certainly add some fuel to the fire for your upcoming anniversary.
3rd Anniversary is Pearl
The pearl is a beautiful addition to any jewellery collection, whether it is natural or cultured.Symbolising wisdom, it seems like a fitting stone to commemorate year three of your relationship. The beauty and simplicity of the pearl also makes it a popular choice for brides-to-be. However, if your budget doesnít stretch to perilous heights, moonstone jewellery is a great alternative.
Blue Topaz for the 4th Anniversary
Known for its stunning blue colouring, topaz is actually available in a broad range of shades and styles, which makes it a great gemstone to mark your fourth milestone.
5th Anniversary Sapphire and Beyond
Celebrating each and every anniversary is something that many couples stick to vehemently and as a result each year has its own special piece of gemstone jewellery. Year 5 is marked with a sapphire, whilst celebrating a decade together certainly calls for more sparkle in the form of a diamond. For couples celebrating 20 years together, an emerald is the associated gemstone, and its beautiful colouring is certain to turn your friends and family members green with envy!
The pearl makes another appearance after 30 years together, whilst a lesser known gemstone called alexandrite is used to celebrate an epic 55 years as a couple. Alexandrite is itself very rare; a popular stone used in antique Russian jewellery, alexandrite gemstone jewellery was and still is a favourite with royalty all over the world.
