Wedding anniversaries

These events take place each year and represent the celebration of the date a wedding took place. The passing of another year is considered to deepen the couple's commitment. To help the celebration of the gradual accumulation of time and memories together special gifts were assigned to each anniversary. Each gift represents a metaphor of the years passed. The wedding anniversary symbols are simple at first, starting with paper, to then gradually increase in substance and value. For instance:

  • For the 10th wedding anniversary the wedding anniversary gifts should consist of tin( traditional gift) or diamond jewelry( modern gift);
  • For the 20th wedding anniversary the wedding anniversary gifts should consist of china( traditional gift) or platinum( modern gift);
  • For the 25th wedding anniversary the wedding anniversary gifts should consist of silver( both traditional and modern gift);
  • For the 30th wedding anniversary the wedding anniversary gifts should consist of pearl( traditional gift) or diamond( modern gift);
  • For the 40th wedding anniversary the wedding anniversary gifts should consist of ruby( both traditional and modern gift);
  • For the 50th wedding anniversary the wedding anniversary gifts should consist of gold( both traditional and modern gift);
  • For the 60th wedding anniversary the wedding anniversary gifts should consist of yellow diamond( traditional gift) or diamond( modern gift).

The tradition of giving specific anniversary gifts based on the number of years of marriage dates back to the Middle Ages. The origins of the current gift conventions date to 1937 when the American National Retail Jeweler Association (now known as Jewelers of America) introduced an expanded list of gifts that incorporated the traditional wedding gifts and added some new modern wedding choices of presents.
