Wedding Anniversary Gift History

Sabel Everyday Collection 14K Yellow Gold Infinity Necklace

Celebrating the date that a wedding occurred has been happening since the 1500s and was initially documented in Germanic countries. During these times, when a couple reached 25 years of marriage, the husband would present the wife with a silver wreath, and when they reached 50 years, he gave her a gold wreath. From this tradition, the silver and gold wedding anniversary traditions emerged.

In the 1800s, the importance of family and home increased, and as a result, wedding anniversaries became more popular and important to celebrate. From this trend, each anniversary year started to be associated with particular items or materials, which each provide a unique symbolism and meaning to the lasting love a couple share.

Celebrating the Golden Anniversary: Significance, Symbolism, and Meaning

Reaching your 50th wedding anniversary is no small feat and should be celebrated in significant, meaningful ways. There is a reason gold is the 50th-anniversary gift. Gold holds a lot of significance and is a prized metal that should be used for only the greatest accomplishments and most meaningful celebrations!

Significance of Gold

Gold is a precious metal that carries a lot of significance. Gold is beautiful, strong, and excellent at resisting corrosion. Just like gold, your love has stood firm against the test of time and is a beautiful accomplishment to celebrate.

Gold Anniversary Rings

Fink's 26 Diamond Double Row Wedding Band

An anniversary ring is like a wedding band but is given at the time of an anniversary instead of the wedding day. Anniversary bands typically feature diamonds or other precious gemstones and can be made from a variety of precious metals. Anniversary bands are typically given at milestone anniversaries.

A gold anniversary ring may be the perfect anniversary gift to celebrate 50 years together. There is a wide range of anniversary bands to choose from, everything from simple gold rings to ornate diamond bands set in gold. Although it may be helpful to have an anniversary band that complements the engagement ring and wedding band, there are no rules - choose what celebrates your lasting love the best! 

Celebrate 50 Years with a Gold Anniversary Band

An anniversary ring we adore is our exclusive 26-diamond double-row band made of white gold. This ring will dazzle on whatever finger you choose to wear it and is a perfect way to symbolize the love you share.

Fink's Three Row Diamond Eternity Wedding Band

If symbolism is important in the gold anniversary gift you select, considering a three-row anniversary band may be exactly what you are searching for. The three rows symbolize and represent your past, present, and future love and is a meaningful way to showcase how your love has lasted through the ages.

You may be looking for something that is stackable with the engagement and wedding band. Our 18 karat yellow gold channel set band has a sleek and modern look that shines bright on its own while also being able to complement and bring out the best in your other cherished rings. 

How to Wear an Anniversary Ring

  • Stacked with engagement ring and wedding band
  • Wear on left hand but different finger than engagement and wedding band
  • Wear on right hand for double the sparkle

Statement Gold Rings

An anniversary band isn’t the only ring option for a golden anniversary. If the woman in your life is a jewelry lover and can’t get enough of accessories, a statement ring for your golden anniversary may be the gift of her dreams!

The three-row bezel set diamond ring featuring 14 karat yellow gold from our Sabel Collection is a stunning option. Not only does this gold ring symbolize past, present, and future with its three rows, it also has a unique, one-of-a-kind design, just like the one-of-a-kind love you share with your beloved.

You don’t get to half a century of marriage without plenty of laughter and fun. A great way to celebrate all the joy your relationship brings is through a playful and fun gold ring, like the 18 karat yellow gold oval gemstone ring from the IPPOLITA Rock Candy Collection. It’s hard to see this gold ring and not smile!

Bracelet as a Golden Anniversary Gift
