Gemstones for Wedding Anniversaries

Gifts for wedding anniversaries are traditional. In fact, several lists are available to select from when trying to decide what would be the perfect gift for a couple's anniversary. The lists include a traditional version, modern version, flower version, and, of course, a gemstone version.

The gemstone version of anniversary gifts, the Anniversary Stones Gift List, has received a nod of approval from the American Gem Society, the Gemological Institute of America or GIA, the Jewelers of America, and the American Gem Trade Association. This particular list of anniversary gifts only includes precious metals and gemstones.

The gemstone list includes one precious metal or gemstone for every anniversary year up to the first twenty-five. Beyond that, the list only includes gifts for anniversaries in multiples of five up to the seventy-fifth anniversary. An alternative gemstone precious metal list is available as well, although it is not as widely accepted.
