Jewelry is a traditional and meaningful way to celebrate an anniversary. The symbolism goes without saying—but we'll say it anyway.
It’s no small feat to stay in a committed relationship, something that requires enduring devotion and strong love, which is why people choose jewelry to represent their promise year after year.
Jewels are made from some of the strongest stuff in the natural world, and they are certainly long lasting!
You may be familiar with the milestone gems and precious metals for each year of commitment, but the most important thing is to choose a piece that is meaningful for you and your partner. We may start out a marriage with rings, but necklaces, earrings, and even bracelets are great choices for an anniversary gift.

For Your First Anniversary
During the first year of marriage, many couples still feel as though they are in their honeymoon phase. It's a precious season of the relationship that is typically celebrated with gold anniversary jewelry.
If you want to get her a personalized anniversary necklace, we recommend the Marte Locket Necklace, with room inside for her favorite picture of you together. This classic piece of jewelry made from gold vermeil is something she can treasure wearing any day of the week.
For the Girl Boss
Maybe you were lucky enough to end up with the girl of your dreams, and she’s a boss!
If the woman you love impresses you day-in-and-day-out with the amazing way she takes on the world, you want to get her a piece that really rises to the occasion, like some anniversary earrings. We recommend these Teresa Sapphire Earrings.
These hand-set white sapphire stud earrings on 14k solid gold are sure to make her smile. And, whenever she puts them on, she’ll feel ready to continue her girl-boss adventures.
Sapphires also just happen to be the gemstone of choice for the 5th, 45th, and 75th anniversaries.
For the Leading Lady
There are some people in our lives who just can’t help but take center stage—she swept you off your feet with her charisma, talent, and generous heart. And, it’s no wonder why she often takes center stage in your community too.
Our Celine Pearl Necklace—a stunning freshwater pearl set in sterling silver with a cubic zirconia accent—is a wonderful choice for the leading lady in your life.
Pearls are commonly given on the 3rd and 30th anniversary. That said, it’s a safe bet that she’ll appreciate them on any anniversary.
For the Mama Bear
An anniversary is a celebration of love between two people, but sometimes those two people realize that the most beautiful expression of their love is the little people in their lives.
She’s probably the best mom in the world, and you can make sure she knows it with our Heidi Mother of Pearl Ring, a gold anniversary ring set with a mother of pearl centerpiece, bordered by dazzling gems on either side.
For your 10 Year Anniversary
The 10 year anniversary is no trifling matter. Time goes by fast—yes—but when you stop and reflect, those 10 years are full of countless memories—a testimony to your enduring love.
That’s why the 10 year anniversary is traditionally celebrated with diamond jewelry. We think these gorgeous Linnea Diamond Stud earrings for women set in sterling silver are just things to commemorate 10 years together.
Keep in mind that you don’t have to follow the traditional gemstone milestones. The most important thing is to give her something that suits her personality and that she will enjoy wearing over the years. When in doubt, a lovely anniversary stack ring to go with her wedding band is alway a good choice.
