Anniversary Gemstones for All Occasions


At Gems Are Forever, our Beverly Hills staff are Graduate Gemologists (G.G.) from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) who believe that anniversaries of all kinds can be celebrated with gifts that are both traditional and beautiful.

While most people think of anniversaries as something only married people celebrate, there are multiple dates in people’s lives and throughout their relationships that are perfectly suited for gift-giving, and jewelry is always a crowd pleaser.

Anniversary gemstones mark the years gone by with precision and provide sentimentality that few other gifts can.

Here is a quick guide that will help you celebrate each anniversary perfectly.

What are the Anniversary Gemstones?

Anniversary gemstones come in straightforward metals and gemstones or a wide array of jewelry and art that can be paired with other metals, beads, or leather, and included in rings, earrings, necklaces, bracelets, pins and brooches, and watches, just to name a few.

Some classic mainstays, like diamonds, rubies, emeralds, and sapphires, even appear twice on the list, so you can get creative with the same stone used in different settings for different celebrations.
