With each passing marriage anniversary, there are certain traditional gifts that are given, either from husband to wife or vice versa, as well as from friends and family of the couple. Following these traditional gift patterns can be difficult, since the first anniversary is usually an occasion to give something made of paper, and it can be difficult to think of a gift made of paper that is appropriate to express your love for your spouse, family member or friend. Naturally, as the years roll by, the traditional gifts become more precious, and by the time a 30th anniversary is reached, it's traditional to give a gift that comprises pearl or diamond. A stunning pair of earrings makes for a great gift, and there are many 30th anniversary earrings to choose from.
Diamonds might be too expensive when it comes to 30th anniversary earrings, but there are many beautiful pearl options on offer. There are so many variations of pearl to choose from, that you don't have to limit yourself to selecting the usual off white orbs, which while still beautiful, might already be in your intended recipients collection. Think about something in mother of pearl, or even freshwater pearls, which have a striking look, and are less rounded than their saltwater cousins. Blister pearls are also an option, and pink is a popular color and is more unique than the standard off white pearl coloring.
Naturally, the traditional gifts become more extravagant with each passing year of marriage, and if the happy couple stay together for 50 years, then the traditional gift needs to be gold, diamonds for 60 years, and both diamonds and gold for a 75th anniversary. You better start saving now!
