Anniversary Stones


When Emily Post first published her anniversary gift list in 1922, anniversary stones were reserved for the later years of marriage.  In 1937, the Jewelers of America published an expanded list that included gemstones for more years.  Since then, new lists have emerged containing a stone for nearly every year of marriage.

So now you don't have to wait 30 or 40 years to receive or give that 10 karat diamond or ruby ring! 

The gemstone list below is recognized and endorsed by The American Gem Society, The Gemological Institute of America, The American Gem Trade Association, Jewelers of America, and the International Colored Gemstone Association. 

Many of these authorities also include an alternate list.  So if you are not happy with the stone listed for your particular anniversary, you always have another option.  And, of course, you don't have to stick with the approved lists.  Whatever you or your spouse want is perfectly okay.

So why not celebrate this year with a piece of jewelry signifying your commitment to each other?

And don't forget the wedding anniversary flower associated with your anniversary.

And, if you haven't done so already, check out our traditional and modern anniversary symbols list.
