Married couples use wedding anniversaries to celebrate the time they have spent together as well as to enjoy their love. At these special occasions, suitable gifts are usually given to each other. Among the suitable gifts for such occasions, gemstones are usually at the top of the list.

There are different gemstones traditionally used as gifts to celebrate different anniversaries.

In addition to gifting the gemstone, you are encouraged to enclose a card with the spiritual and metaphysical meaning of the stone, so that your spouse or loved one could be aware of the powerful metaphysical action of the given gemstone.

If you have looked carefully at these charts you must have noticed that some years are not present. Even though these years don't have designated stones, you could always assign them a nice gift in a form of stone. Think, for example, what the birthstone of your partner is, or about his/her favorite gemstone to get an idea about the possible anniversary gift.
