A sapphire anniversary band is a classic gift that is sure to please. Sapphire pendants and earrings are also lovely, time-honoured gifts.
10: A ten-year wedding anniversary is a landmark occasion, so it naturally follows that the traditional gemstone is the diamond. Diamonds represent beauty and longevity- just like 10 years of marriage. It’s customary to give a diamond band, such as an eternity ring, for a 10 year anniversary jewellery gift, but you can choose another type of diamond jewellery to suite her taste.
15: To celebrate 15 years of marriage, ruby jewellery is customary. For centuries, rubies have symbolized prosperity and passion. At 15 years, a gift with ruby jewellery symbolizes your fiery love.
