Anniversary Gift Information
Traditionally, if a married couple lived to celebrate the twenty fifth anniversary of their wedding, the wife was presented with a silver wreath, as congratulations for the good fortune that had prolonged the lives of the couple for so many years and in recognition of them enjoying a harmonious relationship. On celebration of the fiftieth the wife received a wreath of gold. These anniversaries were known as the silver wedding-day and the golden wedding-day. Over time the number of symbols expanded and tradition came to assign gifts that had connections with each stage of married life... whilst there is no one universally accepted list this is a common assignment for gifts of jewellery.
