Anniversary Rings By Year
1 year anniversary: Gold band
Celebrate your 1 year wedding anniversary with a classic gold band! The simplistic silhouette of a traditional gold band ring is a beautiful representation of the beginning of a marriage – a blank slate to be painted on with memories. A plain gold band is a perfect ring to stack with an engagement ring or bridal ring set.
Similar to the wedding bands you exchanged on your wedding day, a gold band has traditionally symbolized endless love and devotion when given to your partner. We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate 1 year of marriage than by reminding your partner of your life-long promise to love them, and be loved by them.
2 year anniversary: Garnet band
For your 2nd wedding anniversary, garnet is the traditional gemstone to celebrate the milestone. The romantic, crimson color of this gemstone is sure to capture your partner’s heart all over again.
P.S. If your partner is a Capricorn (born in the month of January), this will hold even more sentimental value for them!
3 year anniversary: Pearl band
Like finding a pearl in the ocean, your love is rare! Celebrate three years of marriage with a wondrous, iridescent pearl anniversary band. Perhaps over a seafood dinner, you can have a platter of clam shells, with the ring hidden in one of the shells (cleaned out of course, so that it’s not sitting in with a clam). When they open the clam, they will certainly be surprise to find the pearl ring! Also, this is the perfect gift for a partner with the birthstone of a Gemini.
4 year anniversary: Blue Topaz band
Celebrate four years and forever with the love of your life by giving them a blue topaz anniversary band! The blue topaz gemstone is said to promote harmony and relaxation. A wonderful meaning behind a milestone anniversary gift!
5 year anniversary: Sapphire band
With 5 years of marriage under your belt, it is only appropriate to celebrate the occasion with a pop of color! Give your loved one a blue sapphire band for your 5 year anniversary. This is the perfect stacking ring to wear separately or with a bridal ring set to add a pop of color to the sparkling diamond and gold duo, and create a unique bridal trio!
10 year anniversary: Diamond band

If your partner has the birth sign of a cancer, their birth stone is a ruby. This makes the 15th anniversary band of a ruby band even more special!
