The wedding is a wonderful event, and the years lived together and decades mean that the family is strong. Perhaps that’s why the jewelers came up with the idea that a gift is needed not only on the birthday of a new family, but in the future – on every anniversary. The fact that the “invention” belongs precisely to the jewelers can be judged by the names from the twenty-first to the twenty-sixth anniversary.
Whatever it was, now almost every year of the wedding has its name and the corresponding gifts, including – precious stones and the woman has every reason for an annual replenishment of the jewelry box.
The gallery below shows information about which gems correspond to a certain year of married life, which will help to choose the right stone for the anniversary of the wedding.

Of course, the fewer years is the family, the more modest are the gems, and, accordingly, the more spouses live together – the more valuable are stones. For some anniversaries, stones are not given, and some are named for those stones that are best for a wedding present. For example: turquoise (11 years), amethyst (17 years) or emerald (55 years).
The first years of living together, of course, it is the husband who gives his wife jewelry with insets: garnet, pearls, amber, etc. Noteworthy, the amethyst is given to the wife only by the husband or children, because, according to belief, this stone is capable of falling in love with the person who gave it.

Relatives of spouses can give decorations with gems for “serious” anniversaries, but it is even better if they are household items that can be used at home, so that the family has a cosiness and harmony – watches, souvenirs, table items, figurines, etc.
