Discovering the Romance of Anniversary Gemstones

At Gems Are Forever, our Beverly Hills staff are Graduate Gemologists (G.G.) from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and are the experts when it comes to celebrating love.

Whether it is for your wedding anniversary, celebrating a relationship, or honoring beloved friends or family members, each can be represented by a gift of gemstones, or a metal used in jewelry.

Since most relationships begin with an engagement ring or another significant piece of jewelry representing your commitment — metal and gemstones are natural anniversary gifts — which are denoted by the relationship’s years of existence.
