Crystal is the first truly expensive gift in the traditional anniversary list. The costliness of crystal is representative of the sacrifice and investment the couple has made to the marriage over the past fifteen years. Crystal also symbolises clarity and transparency, reflecting the state of the couple's relationship. This year’s anniversary flower is a Rose which represents the passion and romance in the relationship.
Ruby is the gemstone for this anniversary. Early cultures cherished rubies for their resemblance to the redness of the blood and believed that rubies held the power of life. Ruby has accumulated an amount of stories over the centuries with Europeans believing rubies guaranteed health, wisdom, wealth and love. In Burma, warriors had rubies to make them unbeatable in battle. But it wasn’t enough to just wear the rubies, they had to insert them into their flesh and make them part of their bodies.
We have a large range of ruby pendants, rings, earrings and bracelets. To view our collection of ruby jewellery, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
