Celebrate another year of wedded bliss by giving your spouse a gift to symbolize the years you’ve spent together in marriage–a sign of your love and devotion. Each year marks another milestone, and what better way to commemorate the occasion than with a unique piece of gemstone jewellery.

The custom of marking each anniversary with a different material dates back to the Middle Ages. During this period, common goods such as paper, cotton and glass were given to honour a wedding anniversary. Over time, these items were replaced with beautiful gemstones like sapphire, jade and garnet. Many of these are traditional birthstones as well.
