A 60th wedding anniversary, otherwise known as a diamond wedding anniversary, is a milestone worth celebrating in style. There are a whole host of great gift ideas designed for your diamond anniversary, and how you choose to celebrate the occasion is entirely up to you. In this article, we discuss the best diamond anniversary gift ideas.
What do you give for a diamond wedding anniversary?
It is traditional to give diamonds as a gift when celebrating a 60th wedding anniversary. The easiest and most beautiful way to follow this tradition is to give your loved one a stunning piece of diamond jewellery. Diamonds are the perfect gift to celebrate such a special milestone as their fire within is thought to symbolise the eternal flame of love.
Where did the tradition come from?
It’s thought that the tradition of celebrating your 60th wedding anniversary became popular after Queen Victoria celebrated her Diamond Jubilee. Diamonds are accepted as both traditional and modern gifts for a 60th wedding anniversary.
Diamond anniversary gift ideas
From diamond eternity rings to diamond earrings, there are plenty of beautiful diamond jewellery gifts ideal for your loved one on your anniversary. Here are a few of our favourites.
Diamond eternity ring
An eternity ring is a traditional gift idea for anniversaries and is not only given to mark the special milestone but also as a symbol of everlasting love. Depending on your budget and preference, you can choose from full diamond eternity rings or half diamond eternity rings. The difference between the two styles is the number of diamonds - half eternity rings are partially adorned with diamonds, whereas full eternity rings are fully adorned. Your loved one can wear their eternity ring with their engagement ring and wedding ring, or on the opposite hand if they prefer.
Whether it be for a birthday, anniversary or another special milestone, a pair of diamond earrings make a great gift idea for almost any occasion. Diamond earrings are a staple piece in every jewellery collection because of their versatility. Whether you choose fancy diamond drop earrings or simple solitaire stud earrings, a pair of earrings is guaranteed to be appreciated by your loved one on your anniversary.
Vintage style diamond ring
Why not mark a special wedding anniversary with a beautiful vintage style diamond ring? A ring as unique as the love you both share could be a great way to symbolise this precious 60th year together. From beautiful milgrain detailing to intricate diamonds and elegant settings, there are plenty of exquisite vintage style rings to choose from. Tailor yours by choosing your preferred metal.
Diamond tennis bracelet
For a super luxurious wedding anniversary gift look no further than a diamond tennis bracelet. Not only are they a piece of jewellery that is guaranteed to be passed down to the grandchildren, but they are also so elegant and stylish that your loved one is unlikely to take theirs off. Invest in this jewellery box staple and make their year even brighter.
Heart diamond pendant necklace
Could there be any better way to say “I love you” than with a heart diamond pendant? A heart-shaped pendant is ideal as a sentimental gift for your loved one, plus each time they wear it, they will think of you. A diamond heart necklace is a great anniversary gift if your loved one is a fan of jewellery as they can layer theirs with other pendants. Choose from a wide selection of styles to suit their taste and preferences.
