While it’s always a good idea to make your spouse feel loved and appreciated every day of the year, anniversaries offer couples the chance to really celebrate their relationship. And as is the case with many celebrations, gifts are always encouraged. Thoughtful gifts have the ability to make your loved one feel special. They reflect the thoughtfulness that went into selecting the gift and will serve as a reminder of your celebration for the rest of your lives. Every time she puts on that piece of jewelry you surprised her with, she’ll be reminded of all the happy times you two have shared. But finding the perfect anniversary gift each year can be challenging. That’s why we’ve created this handy guide to help you out.

Does she have a favorite metal? Does she usually wear yellow gold jewelry? Or does she prefer the silvery look of white gold, platinum, or sterling silver? Perhaps she’s a big fan of rose gold. Whatever the case may be, it’s a good idea to take note of the type of jewelry she typically wears. Doing so may help you narrow down possible gift options.

Does she have all of the fine jewelry staples? Every woman needs certain jewelry essentials that have the capability of completing any outfit. These include diamond studs, a diamond bracelet, a strand of pearls, a diamond pendant, and pearl studs. If your special lady is missing one or more of these jewelry staples, it may be a good idea to gift her one of these pieces when your next anniversary comes around.

Does she have a favorite gemstone? Some women are drawn to certain gemstones, whether it’s diamonds, sapphires, rubies, emeralds, topaz, aquamarine, or another type of gem. If you’ve noticed her attraction to a particular gemstone, consider gifting her a jewelry piece that features this gem. And for those who appreciate the beauty in every gemstone (like we do), you may want to surprise her with jewelry that incorporates the designated gemstone for whichever number anniversary you’re celebrating. Here’s a list of all the designated gemstones for anniversaries one through sixty.

Does she prefer bold or minimalist jewelry? Typically, women have a preference when it comes to their jewelry style. They usually either like statement pieces that are unlike any other piece of jewelry or they like simplistic, minimalist pieces. It’s always important to keep her tastes in mind when selecting an anniversary gift.

Does she have matching jewelry? Women tend to wear multiple jewelry pieces at the same time. You may have bought her a nice pendant one year or she may have a favorite jewelry piece she wears all the time. For your next anniversary, consider gifting her the matching earrings, bracelet, or ring so she can wear all her matching jewelry at one time.

Do any of her jewelry pieces need an upgrade? Oftentimes, when individuals purchase jewelry for the first time, they do so when they are young and have a more limited budget. However, later on down the road when incomes are higher, these individuals tend to have more money to spend on luxury goods. This is why we see women or their spouses “upgrade” her existing jewelry by replacing gemstones with larger, higher quality ones or setting her current gemstones in a more contemporary setting.
