When the time comes to celebrate an anniversary, it's not unusual to consider jewelry as a gift. Indeed, jewelry is a classic anniversary gift. Most people are somewhat familiar with the traditional anniversary gift calendar – or at least the silver and gold anniversaries. Although those are associated with the 25th and 50th anniversaries, one need not wait that long to give a gorgeous gift of gold or silver.
Rings are a classic choice for an anniversary gift. The three stone ring is one choice, often referred to as "past, present, and future ring." This style is widely available, and has the versatility to be a gift for any anniversary. The meaning is significant; remembering and honoring past years together, strengthening bonds in the present, and looking forward to a bright and long future together. Typically these rings are three diamonds, with a larger center stone flanked by two side stones. It is not necessary, however, to strictly adhere to tradition. Consider also the vast array of gemstones available to add a splash of color.
Pendants are another meaningful gift for an upcoming anniversary. Pendants offer greater versatility than rings in many respects. You can choose a specific charm to represent something important in the relationship. A shared hobby, a mutual passion, or even a symbol emblematic of the relationship – all of these are possibilities if you decide to give a charm pendant. Of course, you can consider the classic diamond or gemstone pendant, sure to complement practice any outfit and situation.
It's easy to overlook the possibility of giving a bracelet, though it should always be a consideration. Gorgeous keepsake bracelets made from precious stones, glass beads, Swarovski Crystals, and other beautiful materials can communicate love and devotion. Often, charms are added to indicate some specific symbol of the relationship – sometimes an infinity or a heart charm. Other bracelet styles can be engraved with a wedding or commitment ceremony date, or the names of the couple. The gift of a bracelet really allows for maximum creativity because of the great variety of options available to consumers.
Celebrating an anniversary is a joyous occasion, a time to reflect upon the love and commitment of a couple. A carefully selected piece of jewelry commemorates the occasion, and is a reminder of that love each time it is worn. Reflecting upon the tastes of the recipient, and choosing an appropriate piece that ensures the gift endures for years to come.
