A pearl anniversary -- or the 30th wedding anniversary -- is truly one of the milestone anniversaries. Thirty years of togetherness is nothing short of a miracle in these days of 'quickie' weddings and even faster divorces!
It is easy to give the perfect gift when you know the basics. In this case, this means that, like each anniversary year, the 30th year also has a list of traditional and modern gifts as well as a customary flower. While the traditional gift is pearl (hence the name), the modern gift is that of diamond jewellery. Hey, come to think of it, a pearl anniversary is one that every wife is going to love -- either way she will be showered with precious jewels!
Pearls as the 30th anniversary traditional gift
1.Pearls are an all-time classic and add instant sophistication and glamour to a woman's overall appearance, irrespective of her age. And, guess what? All pearls need not be white. You can give her a stunning necklace pendant, or earrings set with black Tahitian pearl, or bracelets, rings and brooches made with golden South Sea pearls. Pearl gifts are always elegant and appropriate.
2.If she isn't too wild about pearls (and you should know that better than anybody else), then try a jewellery box that is inlaid with mother-of-pearl.
3.A mother-of-pearl photograph frame can also be a great gift. Of course, be sure to put a special photograph of the two of you within the frame.
4.Rekindle your earlier love for travel. Try and visit an exotic destination that has a rich tradition of pearling in its history.
Diamond as the 30th anniversary modern/contemporary gift
Well, what can you say about diamonds? Whether you choose to give her a huge solitaire or a diamond-studded anniversary ring, a diamond necklace, earrings or a diamond pendant, your gifts will hit its mark. Diamonds are no longer restricted to jewellery these days you know. You can even go for a diamond-studded wrist watch.
Sweet Pea as the 30th anniversary Flower
Flowers and anniversaries -- or any celebration for that matter -- are inseparable. If red roses have become too predictable (and yes, even boring), then look no further than sweet pea. It is the traditional flower for the pearl anniversary.
Sweet peas were hugely popular during Edwardian England and were a given as an integral part of floral arrangements for weddings and dinner parties. You could give her a potted sweet pea plant if she is a gardening enthusiast. Or, choose lovely linen which has sweet pea motifs.
