Anniversary Ideas

The following list of anniversary numbers and materials is far too often just associated with wedding anniversaries. However, they apply equally to any anniversary, from a person’s birthday to the age of a company. Thus ruby jewellery is now often given to a woman on her 40th birthday and some firms give their employees a small silver gift after 25 years of service.

Only some of the materials listed have obvious connections with jewellery, but with imagination a suitable gifts can be found in almost any category (some examples are given).

Perhaps a gift voucher, gift vouchers are available from store to any value, or a piece of jewellery that comes with a paper guarantee or certificate, such as a watch or a nice diamond.

Not easy this, sorry nothing we can think of from our stock! We do stock Silver & Jewellery cleaning cloths made of cotton....may not go down so well.
