It’s hard to believe your love has been burning strong as a married couple for 30 years now. You’ve shared so many priceless memories over the past three decades. Now, it’s time to show her just how much she means to you with some 30th wedding anniversary gifts that symbolize your precious love.
Symbolic 30th Wedding Anniversary Gifts
So, why do we call it a pearl anniversary? Well, the PEARL is one of the symbols of the 30th wedding anniversary in the U.S. There are other symbols that represent it as well, which can be incorporated in your 30th anniversary gift giving, such as:
- LILY: 30th Anniversary Flower
- DIAMOND: Modern 30th Anniversary Gift
- PEARL: Traditional 30th Anniversary Gift – Also, the 30th Wedding Anniversary Gemstone
30th Anniversary Flower: Lilies
Historically, lilies have always been the official flower of the 30th wedding anniversary. Show her you love her with a large bouquet of lilies, along with a diamond anniversary ring or a lustrous string of pearls. Just wrap the pearl necklace around the bouquet, strategically place the ring box inside the bouquet, and you’ve just bought yourself another 30 years of wedded bliss.
Modern 30th Anniversary Gift: Diamonds
If you’re interested in buying her a modern gift for your 30th wedding anniversary, diamonds are your best friend. This is one of the most desired, well-known gems in the world. Some diamond gift ideas include necklaces, earrings, bracelets, rings, brooches, and pendants.
Diamonds and pearls are the most durable, strongest gems on the market. However, diamonds just need to be polished and cleaned every once in a while. So, they’ll retain their value, while remaining easy to care for and maintain.
Traditional 30th Anniversary Gift: Pearls
The pearl is the most common traditional gift presented for 30th wedding anniversaries. These precious gems are sensitive and require care. Some pearl necklaces and bracelets may even need to be restrung after a few years. However, they do retain their value well. Plus, they come from oysters, where they are created naturally, unlike diamonds, which require dangerous mining techniques.
Cultured pearls make awesome 30th anniversary gifts. Some pearl gift ideas include necklaces, earrings, rosaries, bracelets, pendants, brooches, rings, handbags, jackets and other clothing attire. You’ll also find some classy Freshwater, Hanadama and Freshwater pearl jewelry sets that bring out her style and air of sophistication. 30th wedding anniversary pearls are awesome gifts!
