Leather has traditionally symbolised protection and covering -- our ancestors covered up with the skins of animals to keep themselves and their family safe and warm. The third year of marriage reinforces the bonds of marriage which offer security and shelter as each partner cares for the other. Simply put it means stability for the couple.
The third year anniversary flower is a Sunflower which represents the sun’s warmth. Sunflowers are native to the Americas and is the only flower with the word 'flower' in its name. They were also used for medicine, dye, food and oil.
Pearl is the gemstone for this anniversary. The round shape of a pearl led many cultures to associate it with the moon. In ancient China, pearls were believed to promise protection from fire. In Europe, they symbolised modesty, honor and purity. We have a large range of pearl earrings, pendants, rings and bracelets. You can view our latest collection of Pearl jewellery here on the website.
