We all know the classic anniversaries; ruby for forty years of matrimony, paper when you have just reached the 12 month mark. We at APS however felt things could be a little simpler, and a lot more personal, if we made a list of special gifts for all the wonderful years in between.
1st Anniversary: Gold
Traditionally, couples are considered to be finding their feet the first year of marriage, so rather than a more extravagant gift of gems or diamonds, a simple gold piece of jewellery is perfect. If you want an even more traditional take on the first year anniversary gift (or you are unsure what your partner would like), give your spouse a paper present, in the form of an APS Jewellery gift card.
2nd Anniversary: Garnet
3rd Anniversary: Pearl
4th Anniversary: Blue topaz or blue zircon
5th Anniversary: Pink tourmaline or Sapphire
Pink tourmaline can come in a range of shades, from a soft blush to a vibrant fuschia, so it isn’t surprising this unique stone represents love.
6th Anniversary: Amethyst
