Anniversary & Gifts

Each anniversary is a special day to commemorate. To help you better celebrate your much anticipated anniversary festivities, below is a list of anniversary year and the matching gem stone.

Jewelry as Gifts

Jewelry with both the metal and gemstones, presents a strong statement of fashion, status, & mystical powers.

Theological debate over the centuries has revised and re-molded many of the ancient world's ideals but gemstones continue to play important roles in daily life. Throughout the ages gems have been treasured amulets prized for their ability to influence the energies of nature and the life force itself. Even today much of the attraction to gems still centers on the mystical over the decorative.

Precious metals symbolism is no less that the one held by gemstones.
Today though, the glamor and beauty of gold, while remaining as desirable as ever, are far more democratic. Pure gold is known as 24K gold, but most jewelry is made from either 18K gold, 14K gold or 10K gold. While yellow gold is still probably the most popular color of gold, by mixing gold with other alloys, jewelers can create stunning golden shades. White gold, pink gold, rose gold, orange gold and even green gold are just some of the many colors of gold. Whether you're looking for an 18K gold necklace, a 14K gold ring, 10K gold earrings or simply gold jewelry set with diamonds and gems, one thing you can be sure of is that gold really does glitter.
Jewelry as gifts
The symbolism and the mystic of jewelry makes it the ideal gifts to represent the emotions surrounding the special occasions; such as anniversaries, wedding, birthdays & graduations.

Birthday Gifts

It is the oldest of jewelry traditions to link a birth date to a particular stone and to accept the gem's ability to influence the wearer's life.

In 1912, in an effort to standardize birthstones, the (American) National Association of Jewelers met in Kansas and officially adopted this list.
