Happy Anniversary Engraved Stones

There are certain milestones for wedding anniversary celebrations.  Of course, 10, 25 50 and 75 years are very special and often involve dinners and parties for the entire family and friends.  Sometimes the host gives engraved pocket stones as a memento of the occasion. However each five year period is also a monumental occasion.  Here are the suggested gifts for each five year period:

 

Year      Traditional            Modern

5             Wood                   Silverware

10           Aluminum            Diamonds

15           crystal                  Watches

20           China                   Platinum

25           Silver                    Silver

30           Pearls                  Diamonds

35           Jade                     Jade

40           Rubies                  Rubies

45           Sapphires             Sapphires

50           Gold                      Gold

75           Diamonds/Gold  Diamonds/Gold

 

I don’t know who made up this list, but I get the impression that the jewelry industry was heavily involved.  Whatever you choose as a gift, it will be greatly appreciated.
