Anniversary Gift Guide: Jewelry & Gemstones for Each Year (Part 2)
As we discussed in part 1 of our anniversary gift guide, jewelry is always a great gift, and pairing it with it’s associated gemstone for each anniversary makes it even more special. If you’ve made it to part 2 of the guide, that means you’ve likely made it past the 25th year anniversary (a huge accomplishment)! Going into the third decade with your one true love is certainly something to celebrate. We’ve covered the next 50 years of anniversary gifts below!
Year 30: Pearl Jubilee
The traditional gift for your 30th anniversary is the pearl; Something that takes time to grow, just like your relationship. Any piece of jewelry with pearls is absolutely stunning. Our pearl studs are a classic or the floating pearl necklace.
Year 35: Coral
Coral symbolizes longevity and success, making it a very suitable gift for 35 years together. The reddish-pink color of the coral is vibrant, much like the past 3.5 decades of marriage!
Year 40: Ruby
It doesn’t get much more romantic than a gorgeous red ruby, expressing the very essence of love and marriage. Rubies are a breathtaking gemstone in any piece of jewelry. The Bostonian Heartbeat necklace is a wonderful anniversary gift or the ruby halo ring. If you have something else in mind, we can also create a custom piece featuring ruby gemstones!
Year 45: Sapphire
The traditional and modern gift for the 45th anniversary is sapphire! The beautiful blue gemstone often symbolizes wisdom, something you’ve certainly gained together over the past 45 years of marriage. We offer a wide variety of sapphire pieces to choose from at Bostonian Jewelers, along with custom made jewelry.
Year: 50: Golden Jubilee
The golden year! If you’ve made it to the 50th year of marriage, it certainly calls for something incredibly special.

Year 60: Diamond
You know what they say; Diamond’s are a girl’s best friend! This still rings true, even after 60 years of marriage. It all started with a diamond, so why not continue the tradition 6 decades later.
