Close your eyes and think back to that special day when you exchanged “I dos” with your significant other. Remember slipping that ring on his or her finger? Recall how you just couldn’t stop staring at those rings and feeling the significance of them as a symbol of your shared love? Well, now you can relive that moment over and over each year with an anniversary ring.
Anniversary rings are a major trend today, with couples exchanging them not only for the “big” milestone anniversaries, but for any year in between. These rings hold special meaning for ladies, as they are a gift from their partner, and have a link to their wedding day. Nothing will be quite as precious as your engagement or wedding band, but anniversaries are a close second, offering gorgeous designs that range in styles.
A common gemstone that is used for anniversary rings is moissanite. This diamond-like stone is primarily engineered in a laboratory, which gives it an eco-friendly feel, while possessing many of the same properties as diamonds. Compared to many other gemstones, moissanite is an affordable option that still gives a major “wow” factor. Moissanite is typically seen as a clear, colorless stone that is brilliant and sparkly, as well as ranking high on the hardness scale. These characteristics make it a perfect choice for anniversaries.
Moissanite pairs beautifully with all metals, including yellow gold, white gold, and rose gold. Because it so highly resembles a diamond, many moissanite stones are used in engagement and wedding rings, as well. For anniversaries, choose a ring that speaks to the style of your partner. Does she like a lot of bling? Does she prefer something a bit more subdued? Traditional anniversary rings include infinity bands, however, there are many more styles that make great choices.
For the woman who loves all thing feminine and girly, try a heart ring that shows just how much you love her. If your gal likes a more subtle dazzle, opt for a single, dainty stone that’s just enough for everyday wear. Or maybe she never really got the engagement ring of her dreams—why not give her a stunning solitaire anniversary ring instead?
Anniversary rings also make great complements to birthstones, so even if you didn’t get married during the same month as her birthday, a moissanite and birthstone ring makes a beautiful tribute to the whole person that she is. Finally, get creative with the number of stones on your ring by matching the number of stones to the number of years you’ve been married. Five stones for five years! She’ll be blown away by the thought behind the gift and the meaning that the ring will hold.
There’s no need to wait for the big moments to really celebrate the day you became one. Every year deserves an honor—so celebrate every anniversary with a new piece of jewelry to let her know you choose her each and every year for forever to come.
