An anniversary is not just another day in your life. It is important to take time to remember the work that both of you have put into this relationship, the gifts and rewards and the shared times of all sorts. It is appropriate to symbolize your appreciation for your spouse with a gift of antique anniversary jewelry that will add to your pleasure and quality of life as the years roll past.
Many people celebrate the passing of another year of marriage. With time, each year has been given a special symbol to reflect the length of time spent together. Garnet indicates the 2nd year of marriage, pearl the 3rd, blue topaz the 4th anniversary and so on. Look out for the appropriate antique anniversary jewelry as the perfect anniversary gift.
The perfect anniversary antique jewelry should not just include the appropriate gem stone. Perhaps your spouse does not like that stone. Perhaps your spouse especially likes another stone. Remember, a true gift should always be chosen in accordance with the taste of the recipient and not just the giver.
Now, does the recipient like a certain style? Do they love Art Nouveau? Most people do and it is the ultimate of romantic styles. Flowing with movement and elegance, Art Nouveau jewelry makes a wonderful anniversary gift. The Edwardian period was especially romantic and was known as the Belle Epoque. Antique jewelry made during this period is very fine and delicate. It is often made using platinum which belies the delicate look and makes it superbly practical as an anniversary gift. Is your spouse a smart lady who appreciates the Art Deco style? Is she a hippy-dippy type who would love a Modernist jewel that swings, sways and moves with Pop Art effects? The choices are endless, but should reflect the taste of the recipient.
Size is important. I’m sure that every woman’s heart beats a little louder when she sees a small jewelry bag and realizes that she is about to receive a beautiful antique anniversary gift. Does she like bigger or does she like understated elegance?
How about the husband? There is a lot of men’s jewelry out there today and men are flaunting it as they haven’t done in over 100 years. My own husband managed to lose the same beautiful ring I had custom made for him twice. After that, I realized that he is not comfortable wearing a ring on his fingers. Something else will have to do.
