An anniversary is a time to rejoice. What could the perfect gift to celebrate your marriage? Hardly anything says I love you better than an anniversary band at the right anniversary.
Are you feeling a little muddled about which band to gift and at what time?
Take a look at Brilliant Earth’s take on choosing the best anniversary band and giving them at the best time.
ANNIVERSARY BANDS: WHEN TO GIVE THEM, HOW TO CHOOSE
After five or ten years of marriage (or even just one) many couples choose to celebrate their anniversaries with special rings. Anniversary rings are often bands embellished with diamonds, though there are no set rules – choose a design that fits her personal style.
WHEN TO BUY AN ANNIVERSARY BAND
The old-fashioned list of anniversary gifts says couples should give each other wood on their fifth anniversary, tin or aluminum on their tenth, and wait until fifty years of marriage before celebrating with gold jewelry! The modern list says that diamond jewelry should be given on your tenth anniversary. We say: Ignore the rules and buy an anniversary band whenever it feels right. To truly surprise your wife, give her a ring on an “off” anniversary (fourth or sixth or eleventh, for example). It’s certain to be a welcome surprise.
CHOOSING AN ANNIVERSARY RING
The first thing to consider is whether you want the anniversary ring to be similar in style to the wedding and engagement rings. The advantage to coordinating rings is that you can wear them together on the same finger. Often when a woman has a simple wedding band, the couple opts for an anniversary band with more embellishment.
Eternity bands, featuring diamonds or other precious gems encircling the finger, are one popular choice, or you might choose a ring featuring the same number of diamond accents as years you’ve been married (a band with five diamond accents for your fifth anniversary, for example). See full post here
