Did you know that more weddings traditionally occur in June than any other month? June is the ‘patron’ month of the goddess Juno, who looks after marriages and married couples, so many consider it good luck to be married in June. I’m sure you consider June to be good luck – it was the start of your own marriage! No matter what ups and downs you have had throughout your relationship, anniversaries are a time to celebrate the reasons that you got together in the first place, and refresh your view of each other. We look at some fabulous themed jewelry gifts to celebrate the month of June.
In the northern hemisphere, June is the month of the summer solstice – the longest day of the year with the most sunshine, and often one of the warmest days of the year. Pandora is one range that knows how to celebrate life in the sun – if your wife doesn’t already have a Pandora bracelet, necklace or anklet, the sunny bright charm at the beginning of the article is a great way to start one! It is made of sterling silver and features yellow cubic zirconia, so is quite budget friendly. With both this charm and the one immediately below it at the right, there is no chance of wrecking all the goodwill of an anniversary gift when she finds out how much you spent on it! The charm second from the top can also be found in the Gemstone beads section of the Pandora pages, and has the same attractive price tag as the first one.
While those in the northern hemisphere are enjoying pina coladas and hazy days at the beach, those under that magical halfway line are snuggling up in bed, afraid to get out lest we lose a toe to frostbite on the way to the kitchen! Fires are our best friend – but you can also celebrate the wintry romance of the season with a jewelry piece like the Inori snowflake mirror pendant at right. This is a fabulous gift for either your husband or your wife, in quite a unisex style. It is made of durable, hard wearing stainless steel, and the snowflake design is created with a part polished, part satin finish. It is a dainty and inconspicuous 2.3cm in length, and if you have a favorite chain it will slip straight on – it is a stand alone item.
The Pure Collection by Hot Diamonds also offers you the opportunity to revel in the magic and sparkling scenes that snow creates, just as it probably did for your winter wedding! It consists of a long drop section, part chain and part droplet studded with several tiny genuine white brilliant cut diamonds. It has a heavy and luxuriant silver weight, and is an elegant 50cm in length.
In many countries in the northern hemisphere, June is also the month that Father’s Day occurs in. If you are looking for an anniversary gift for your husband, grab one of the essential tools of fatherhood – a watch! The Citizen one shown includes the company’s famous Eco-Drive technology, which means that he never has to remember to change a battery again. It is made of durable stainless steel, and comes with Citizen’s extremely generous 5 year Eco-Drive warranty – they put a lot of faith in their products. There is a huge number of sizes available, for comfort.
June is also the month of the rose – in many parts of the world, belted over both the northern and southern hemispheres, roses are in full bloom. Bring the sweet scent and romance into a more permanent form in your anniversary gift, with these rose quartz gemstone drop earrings. They are a sweeping and stylish 7cm long, perfect for evening wear, and the rose quartz pieces are 10mm long. They are accented with pink pearls halfway down the chains, and set on a sterling silver base.
If a watch is one of the essential tools of fatherhood (what time is soccer practice? How long until school finishes? When can I knock off work and see my precious children?), it is no less so for mothers, so this rose-colored timepiece by Fossil is doubly suitable as a June anniversary present. It is a stylish oversized design with eclectically placed numbers and a white croco-embossed strap. It is 50m water resistant, so there won’t be a problem if she accidentally forgets to take it off before putting the children in the bath, but might not survive a swim. The watch also has a two year manufacturer’s warranty.
June is one of only two months of the year that do not start on the same day of the week as any other month. No small feat, considering there are twelve months and only seven days! You could say June is quite unique … and not only because it is your marriage month. Why not get a unique sort of jewelry present to celebrate it, rather than something just like what everyone else has? The amber necklace at right is a great example, with its striking color graduation, cool feel and princess-style length.
However, if amber is not your wife’s style, there are plenty of other pieces on site that less than 0.0001% of the world’s population is likely to also have! The unique silver and ion coated stainless steel necklace is a great example – it is a deliciously heavy weight, at 75g, so she’ll always be aware of wearing it. There is simply no other product on site that has such a unique sort of metal for jewelry, either! It sits close to choker height, at 40cm long.
And despite the plethora of black and stainless steel simple pieces for men, if you search well enough you’ll be able to find unique June anniversary gifts for your husband also. The 18ct gold and silver diamond ring at right is a great example. It would actually be a good buy as a left hand ring, as it is in a similar style to many engagement rings and won’t look out of place with your own rings. The band is a comfortable 5mm wide, and features a baguette cut white diamond of .1ct. You can also engrave an anniversary message inside the band for him … awww!
While the traditional stone for people born in June is the pearl, the stone that is associated with the month itself is the moonstone. If you are looking for a sweet, simple, and not budget-bending gift for this year’s June anniversary, the Pandora blue topaz and moonstone hearts and flowers ring is romantic and simple. The topaz and moonstones are set on partially oxidized sterling silver, and if she can’t get enough of it, you can come back for Christmas and her birthday as well – there is a whole host of matching jewelry in the Pandora range.
