The modern list of wedding anniversary gem stones is:
12th Pearls and colored gems
38th Neryl or Tourmaline
The traditional list of wedding anniversary gemstones is:
35th Coral or Jade
75th Diamond (again)
Emily Post designed the traditional wedding anniversary gemstone list in 1927 and revised in 1957.
The modern anniversary gemstone list was developed recently by the jewellers association.
How the gemstones are given is up to the couple – as a stone alone is unusal as most people give the gemstones set in a jewelry design – gemstone earrings, necklaces and pendants, bracelets, rings; even as different combination sets. Whatever suits the individual style of the recipient is what matters most.
You can also give variations in the colors of the gemstones such as white diamonds and the rare pink diamonds. Sapphires are usually blue but there are stunning pink sapphires for something different.
All the best and happy anniversary!
