Yearly Anniversary Symbolism
Each anniversary year has an associated gemstone or metal that you can choose to go with for its symbolic value. A five year anniversary, for example, is associated with sapphires, while a twenty-five year is typically a silver jubilee anniversary. Buy stackable rings or bracelet charms for a yearly tradition to continue each year, and on the anniversaries featuring your favorite stones or metals, go with a larger gift of a necklace, bracelet, or earrings. For jubilee years (25, 30, 50, 60, and 70) celebrate with decadent treasures of silver, pearls, gold, diamonds, or platinum. Each year brings with it new adventures and experiences, so why not commemorate each and every one?
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.
Celebrate Growing and Building
Celebrate everything you've built together by giving a gorgeous mother's ring, inset with the birthstones of each child or family member. This piece of jewelry comes from the heart and truly lauds the accomplishments of you as a couple. If the birthstones are too fragile for daily wear on the hands (emeralds, opals, and pearls, for example), consider a custom necklace pendant. Just as your love and your family are unique, so too should your jewelry be! Stop by Ware's Jewelers to see what sort of custom options we have to meet your mother's ring and anniversary gift desires.
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.
