Traditional and Modern Gifts for Anniversaries


There were originally only eight traditional anniversary gins. They are shown in red. The rest of the traditional, modern and crystals/gemstones are commonly accepted as appropriate gifts. The American Gem Trade Association, the American Gem Society, Jewelers of America, the Jewelry Industry Council, the Gemological Institute of America, and the Cultured Pearl Association of America have endorsed the modern gemstones list.
