A milestone is a significant event in your life. A milestone in marriage marks the start of the next chapter. Anniversary dates are milestones, and there are some that are more significant than others.
Anniversaries are a fun time to celebrate the union and continued love with your significant other. Every anniversary is a time to rejoice. There are six big anniversaries you want to mark as a milestone and go beyond to ensure they aren’t forgotten.
You met the perfect someone, and you proposed. You educated yourself on things that would help you pick out the perfect engagement ring. You knew that finding the perfect ring was about learning a few things about your sweetheart.
You talked with family and friends and learned what size ring you needed to buy. One of the things you learned was about diamonds, and this information would come in handy when you decide to pick out anniversary rings.
A diamond represents an event, something special in the heart of the giver to the receiver. With each sparkle, cut, and detail, a diamond tells a story, and the woman wearing the diamond is in as much love with the story behind the diamond as the diamond itself.
No other gemstone carries itself like a diamond. There is a mesmerizing effect when you look at the brilliance and sparkle of a diamond. A diamond withstood the pressure of time, it is harder, and it remains forever.
A diamond is beautiful, sparkly, and has more detail than the naked eye can see.
Understanding the 4Cs of a Diamond
Diamond Color Actually Means Lack of Color
A diamond with no color, like a drop of water, is valued higher than a diamond with some color. All diamonds are evaluated, from D (diamonds with no color) to Z (diamond with color).
A diamond expert, under controlled lighting, compares the diamond to “master-stones” to determine the absence of color, and gives the diamond a rating.
Diamond Clarity refers to the absence of “inclusions” (substances, spots, etc. included in the structure of the diamond) and “blemishes” (external characteristics).
Diamonds are created under pressure and heat, and therefore, they have both inside and external characteristics that need to be evaluated by size, nature, position, and relief. The question is how do they affect the appearance of the diamond? The purer a diamond is, the better the Clarity.
Clarity is appraised after looking at the diamond under powerful magnification, and then determining what inside characteristics it has (inclusions). Then a Diamond Clarity Scale is used to give the diamond an overall clarity rating.
Knowing how a diamond is cut is essential in knowing your diamond and its value and ability to transmit light and sparkle. There are diamonds cut round, heart-shaped, oval, marquise, and pear. A skilled gem cutter will know exactly how to cut a diamond, so it interacts with the light to enhance its beauty and value.
By using 200 milligrams as a “carat”, the weight of your diamond can be given within a hundredth decimal place. Larger diamonds are rarer, and thus more valuable and desirable. Remember that the value of a diamond is not only its weight, but also its color, clarity, and cut.
A Diamond is unique.
Each diamond was formed under pressure over time, and each diamond is unique. Diamonds are valued on the 4cs, clarity, cut, carat, and color. A diamond has a clarity factor, which can be affected by inclusions and minor flaws within the diamond. A diamond has a crystal clear color to yellow or other shades. The more absence of color, the higher the grade. A diamond has a cut, and how it is cut reflects the sparkle of the diamond and how the diamond makes a statement. A diamond has a size or carat weight. The bigger the diamond, the more money it costs. Each diamond is unique and not like another. Anniversary rings, depending on the milestone, will include diamonds or other gems.
Anniversary Rings for the Six Major Milestones of a Marriage
Five Years – A Sapphire Anniversary
A sapphire is the gemstone typically associated with five years of marriage. The sapphire is a blue stone that symbolizes wisdom and royalty. It’s deep blue color is perfect used in a necklace, bracelet, or ring. It is a gem perfect for any special occasion and definitely for your fifth anniversary.
Ten Years – A Daffodil Kind of Day
Traditionally silver and blue are associated with the tenth anniversary. A princess cut aquamarine gem in a silver or white gold ring or pendant presents an elegant two tone beauty.
Diamonds may also be in order. The milestone requires a new piece. Maybe an improved engagement ring to go with your wedding bands is in order.
Did you know that daffodils are associated with the tenth anniversary and symbolize happiness, and traditionally is the tenth year flower?
Twenty-Fifty – Silver Jubilee Anniversary
Looking for the perfect jewelry for your twenty fifth anniversary? There are many items found for anniversary gifts, but for this milestone, it only makes sense to have silver as the precious metal for this anniversary. Silver represents hope, kindness, and unconditional love.
Men and women both give anniversary gifts, so maybe a silver watch, like the Oyster Perpetual Datejust 36 made with Oystersteel, and has a silver dial, is a perfect gift for him or a pair of silver cuff links. For her, a sterling silver infinity necklace with lab created diamonds. Thirty Year Anniversary – A Pearl is Simplistic and Classic
Thirty years of marriage is a huge milestone. To join together in a marriage is a commitment and union that needs to be founded in the simplistic exchange of “I do.” Pearls are timeless and will last for many years, and ones that can be passed down through future generations. Imagine your granddaughter’s smile when she announces she is wearing your thirty year anniversary pearl necklace on her wedding day.
Fifty Years Of Marriage – A Golden Ticket
Marriage is for a lifetime. It is based on commitment, love, understanding, and mutual understanding. Gold is the tradition of being married for a half-century. Fifty years of marriage earns the golden ticket to stand in front and celebrate your good fortune.
A gold anniversary ring nestled up against the engagement ring you gave so long ago says everything. The combination of your diamond anniversary bands stacked with your wedding and engagement rings will make a statement and signify your commitment for years to come.
An eternity ring is given as a gift on the first anniversary, as a reminder that the love shared on the wedding day is forever, for an eternity. An eternity ring can be stacked with anniversary rings.
How To Stack and Wear Anniversary, Engagement, and Wedding Rings
A wedding ring stack starts with the engagement ring, then a wedding band. This represents being asked to join in marriage and then making the commitment on the wedding day. If you receive an eternity ring, it will go next.
The anniversary rings you receive don’t have to be worn on the same finger as your wedding rings. An anniversary band can be worn on any finger, and it is really based on your personal preference. Right handed rings make the band stand out and attractive. Left handed bands are elegant when set atop engagement bands.
