For a truly exceptional piece, consider one from James Allen or Blue Nile. The two-diamond design symbolizes the dual nature of deep friendship and true love—the perfect sentiment for your anniversary.

While every year of marriage is worthy of celebration, landmark years deserve extra attention. Milestone anniversaries are typically recognized every five years: 5th, 10th, 15th, 20th, 25th, etc.
Although there are lists of traditional gifts by year, most couples decide to choose a lasting gift that will be cherished and appreciated (rather than one that follows a certain ‘rule’). Here we provide gift ideas for each milestone anniversary, though any item from this guide would be exceptional.
Choose white gold or platinum for your setting to align with the ‘silver’ anniversary theme.
Consider pearls for your jewelry, if you’re going for a traditional anniversary gift.
Select a ruby if you’re going the traditional route.
Opt for a yellow gold setting to commemorate your golden anniversary.
The most important recommendation we can give you when purchasing an anniversary gift is to choose from a highly reputable vendor. Our years of experience in the jewelry industry have given us a consistent pulse on which vendors you can trust (and which ones you can’t).
The online dealers below offer both stunning diamond and gemstone options. All jewelry is made with high-quality metal and gemstones. By going with one of these vendors, you’ll have a gift that will last for years—even generations.
Several jewelers, like Kay Jewelers and Zales, offer seemingly great gifts for special celebrations like anniversaries. Their advertisements often target a particular line of jewelry or even a specific item. While these may appear to be excellent anniversary gifts, the jewelry is often poorly made and of low quality. You’ll be purchasing substandard jewelry—pieces that won’t maintain their beauty or value.
Instead, opt for a timeless piece that can be passed down for generations by choosing something from a trusted vendor (like the ones listed above).
Looking for an alternative to a diamond? Gemstones are eye-catching and usually less expensive than diamonds. Select a colored gemstone like topaz, sapphire or amethyst for your jewelry. Consider her birthstone or favorite color, then place the stone in a stunning piece of jewelry.
