Wow … thirty years together! I’ll bet you have even amazed yourselves. It is a rare feat nowadays, to last thirty years in a marriage. Less than half of all marriages make it past three years in the Western world, so you have done ten times as much work and grown ten times as much, as well as having ten times as much fun as most people! Why not congratulate yourselves, and celebrate all your hard work, with a gorgeous jewelry gift? The thirtieth anniversary is the pearl anniversary, so there is no better gift than jewelry … unlike the paper, bismuth or steel anniversaries! Read on for our suggestions for 30 year anniversary gifts.
As mentioned, this is an anniversary where your best gift option is definitely jewelry. There is a huge variety of natural and cultured pearls available now, and we have refined the technique to be able to grow pearls of all different colors, sizes and even shapes. The necklace pictured at the beginning of the article has a petroleum pearl, along with a diamond-inset flower. It is made with Pandora’s signature oxidized sterling silver, which creates a wonderful vintage feel. A vintage feel which is not unlike the beautiful vintage feel of your thirty year relationship, no doubt! There is a wide range of matching jewelry from the Pandora collection to go with these necklaces, including the hook fitting earrings with petroleum pearl and diamond, shown above, and the silver and gold flower ring with a diamond shown below.
We mentioned that pearls are available in a huge rnage of colors, and if your wife is as young in spirit as she is in appearance , then something like these purple pearl and tanzanite bubble earrings could be perfect for her. They are set on 14ct yellow gold, and the flower charm and the pearl are free-moving, for a lovely energy and attraction.
If you are married to a singular, stylish sort of lady, then you will want a stylish, singular sort of gift – like this beautiful diamond and pearl pendant. The fresh water pearl and brilliant cut diamonds are set on white gold, and the overall effect is nothing short of ethereal … you also get to choose the chain that is best suited to your lovely lady, as this pendant is sold as a stand-alone item.
If you are looking for a thirtieth anniversary gift for your husband, you may have already noticed that there is not much in the way of pearl jewelry for males. However, if you think a little outside the box you can still indulge in the traditional gift for this year, buying something that incorporates mother of pearl. The cufflinks pictured here are set on sterling silver and have a lovely gentle and flexible style. They can be either for everyday office wear, or as something special for a night out.
And of course, this is a special year for the two of you, so we would be terribly remiss if we didn’t mention one of our extra-special pearl jewelry items – this gorgeous Tahitian black pearl pendant. This showpiece pendant has a beautiful, very large 13.45mm black pearl, together with brilliant cut diamonds to contrast the lovely dark steely effect of the black pearl. If you really want to make your wife feel special, there is no better way to tell her that she is the pearl of all the oceans!
