A Preview to Something More
Celebrating a big milestone—whether it's your fifth, twenty-fifth, or fiftieth anniversary—may mean you want to do more than just go out to dinner. Purchasing a piece of jewelry with an occasion in mind can be the perfect way to reveal your celebratory dinner—in Turks and Caicos, in two days. Giving an experience is a memorable way to honor your commitment to each other by spending time alone together. The trip will be all the more memorable if there's a brand-new anniversary gift you can wear while you're there. Pack your bags, and don't forget the new beautiful diamond necklace that goes with your favorite dress!
A Gift For Him
Men's jewelry is not as common as women's, but it's just as wonderful to receive. A genuine gold band or a nice watch are happily worn for years to come. For the man in your life, choose a simple style to go with everything, or give him a one-of-a-kind occasion piece for formal events and candlelit dinners. Choosing a harder metal, such as platinum, will ensure years of wear without showing signs of damage; follow a similar principle when selecting gemstones. Diamonds and sapphires are particularly durable stones that pair well with men's jewelry. This year, surprise him with a unique and timeless anniversary gift he'll wear fondly.
Stackable anniversary bands are a gorgeous addition to your engagement ring or wedding bands. Perfect for both him and her, an anniversary band can be engraved, inset with diamonds or other small gemstones, and built to match as a set or custom-built to fit each of your styles. An anniversary band can be a great low-risk option to wear when traveling; generally smaller than a wedding band and more budget-friendly, these rings show a continued love and commitment worn with or without your other rings. Whether it's your second or your twentieth wedding anniversary, gift an anniversary band to show you'll still say “I do” every day of the week.
In Your Own Words
Custom engraving can lend a world of meaning to anniversary gifts. Lyrics to "your song" inscribed on the inside of a ring, a special word or a date on a necklace charm, or a phrase on the exterior of a gold bangle all personalize a gift and make it unique to you and your love story. Most flat surfaces on jewelry can be engraved, opening a world of options so you can give the gift you want with your own personal touch. Choose a piece of jewelry to reflect the year's traditional metal or gemstone and engrave it with the sweetest sentiment for an unforgettable anniversary gift.
