It’s been a few years since you said, “I do,” and although she still wears her engagement ring proudly every day, it’s time to find an anniversary present that will show how much you appreciate everything she has done these past years. Anniversary jewelry gifts are the perfect way to show your continued love and devotion to that special woman in your life. By now, you know her style and her habits, and you are able to pick out a piece of jewelry that will truly reflect her personality. Here are a few great ideas:
The fashionista wants...a wear-anywhere necklace
A simple but on-trend necklace, like this Diamonds by the Yard chain embellished with A Cut Above diamonds, is the perfect anniversary jewelry gift for a woman who loves fashion and always wants to look up-to-the-minute and eye-catching.
The true romantic wants...a heart-shaped pendant necklace
Diamond pendants can come in a variety of shapes and styles, but nothing is more romantic than a heart pendant with two perfect diamonds representing the happily-married couple. Strung on a delicate white gold chain, this is a gift your wife will keep literally close to her heart.
If she loves surprises, she’ll love...a new diamond setting
Many people choose very simple settings when first purchasing an engagement ring, concentrating all their resources on getting a top-notch loose diamond. But after a few years go by, you might find yourself noticing all the fabulous diamond settings you had to pass up. It’s not too late! Surprise you wife by having her original loose diamond reset in a more intricate and glamorous setting. With its close emotional connection to your original proposal, this makes a sentimental and surprising anniversary gift.
The practical woman wants...perfect diamond earrings
By now you know if your wife likes to teeter around in 4-inch heels or opt for comfortable flats. If she is the super-practical type, you might think she won’t have patience for a stack of bangle bracelets, but you can’t go wrong with a pair of super-comfortable diamond “huggie” earrings. These elegant earrings curve gently around the ear, adding sparkle and glamour to any outfit without any added hassle.
The traditional one wants...something to commemorate the year
Many people know that the 25th anniversary is called the “silver anniversary” and that the 50th corresponds to gold, but not too many people know that every year of marriage has its corresponding traditional gift. For example, the fourth anniversary is dedicated to flowers—the perfect gift for the fourth anniversary would be this delicate but gorgeous flower pendant necklace. On the thirteenth, the lace anniversary, you can find bracelets and rings with delicate lacy filigree. And on the pearl anniversary, the thirtieth, its time to splurge on a fabulous piece of pearl jewelry.
