Some may say, that by the age of 60+ you have probably got all the jewellery you are ever going to need/want. But can you ever have too much?
As Valentines Day approaches and ‘much younger’ people turn to the internet to order huge, overpriced bouquet’s, and book vastly expensive restaurant tables, in an attempt to impress their loved ones, what is it that floats the boat of the mature, been together years and still loved up, market? Is it confined to 14th February? What about those other all-important relationship milestones, such as wedding anniversaries.
Personally, I love the idea of marking a special date with a romantic gesture, such as gifting your loved one with a new necklace or earrings to recognise the importance of a milestone wedding anniversary.
Yes I know, Bernard, c1950 will look pretty daft in a matching set, but you know what I mean. Us women love all things sparkly and there’s a stone for all occasions!
Recently, I was lucky enough to be gifted THE most gorgeous sparkly bracelet for my birthday. It was such a lovely surprise, and all the more appreciated because it was totally unexpected. My wrists are fairly small, and my gift was very fine and delicate and is absolutely perfect for me. It arrived unannounced in a lovely presentation box from CARAT and is one of the nicest presents I have ever received.
RUBY WEDDING ANNIVERSARY
The ruby traditionally marks 40 years of married life and is possibly one of the richest coloured stones for those couples married in their 20’s, and about to celebrate this milestone in their 60’s.
Let’s be honest, reaching the all-important 25 year Silver anniversary is a drop in the ocean of relationships, compared to this one.
GOLDEN WEDDING ANNIVERSARY
Now we are talking big figures, 50 years of wedded bliss. Time to really push the boat out and buy something beautiful for your partner. Many women find chunky bracelets a bit annoying and restricting, so a fine, elegant yet stunningly pretty bracelet will be the perfect answer. This one will work daytime through to the evening, and will also be the perfect accessory for special occasions.
DIAMOND WEDDING ANNIVERSARY
Well, you’ve well and truly nailed the marriage lark, congratulations! 60 years is a wonderful achievement, and this wedding anniversary should be marked by something special – and I feel that nothing less than a matching set of jewellery will do. Yes, this milestone calls for something fabulous, such as earrings, a necklace, and bracelet. Especially if you are going to celebrate with a luxury cruise or trip of a lifetime. What better time to show off your new jewellery collection.
Even if you don’t normally wear many accessories, it’s still nice to have a few little bits tucked away in your drawer to bring out on special occasions. And for those who really love to rock some stones, these gems really will have you smiling!
