Discover The Meaning Behind Anniversary Symbols
Anniversary symbols and their meaning have been a source of inspiration for celebrating anniversaries for hundreds of years. The depth of emotion, strength and durability of a relationship is shown through these symbols, making the sentiment clear to your loved one. With each year that passes the material gets stronger and more valuable, echoing the development of your relationship.
Over the last century, these symbols have been commercialised and now you can find products, gemstones and colours that all reflect the year of your anniversary. Some would say it's been over-commercialised; others just love the additional inspiration that this offers.
Where once 25 and 40 year anniversaries were signs of a long and strong relationship, these days, 50 and even 60 year anniversaries are regularly celebrated. Here you'll find a table showing anniversary symbols right up to 75 years of marriage. These are the traditional English anniversaries, but we've mentioned the US versions as well. It seems these days, we tend to favour the US version as it's a little more up to date. Just click on the links for inspiration.
