THE ULTIMATE ANNIVERSARY GIFT GUIDE - LOVE AND MARRIAGE
From the moment you walked down the aisle, you’ve been committed to each other for what seems like forever (in a good way) and like diamonds, your love will last a lifetime. On a special anniversary you need a gift that’s more than flowers and chocolates. Think of it this way: engagement and marriage started off with rings and so it makes sense that a significant anniversary follows suit. Whether you’ve been married for one year or 10 years, discover a wide variety of precious anniversary gifts by milestone:
ONE YEAR: A TREASURED TOKEN OF YOUR LOVE
In commemoration of your first year together, celebrate the special milestone with a classic, yet contemporary design. Now’s the time to build a fine jewellery collection, so when wondering ‘what are good anniversary gifts for her?’ think beautiful rings she can layer like a micro set band with other designer jewellery pieces from Shimansky. Consider the very creative and beautifully striking Table Mountain ring – an ideal keepsake if you’re celebrating your anniversary in the Mother City (or if you got married there).
If you’d like to get her something other than a ring, a pair of diamond stud earrings means she has something exquisite to dress up any look on any day. Very much a classic jewellery item, the versatility of diamond studs mean they are as elegant, like the love of your life.
FIVE YEARS: SPARKLING SURPRISE
It’s been five magical years with the one you love. Now is the time to show your appreciation and research anniversary gifts based on year. Our ideas include something sparkly she can wear very close to her heart – always! For those who adore classic, yet contemporary and timeless design, select the Dancing Pendants (in either tanzanite or diamond). These beautifully created pendants allow the precious diamond in the setting to move and capture the light with each step the wearer takes - truly an ingenious design.
For the ultimate anniversary gift, invest in a solitaire diamond pendant with a round cut brilliant diamond weighing 1.00ct and set in a choice of Platinum, 18K White, Yellow and Rose Gold. For added beauty on the extraordinary design select the My Girl solitaire diamond pendant – a Shimansky exclusive - instead. The patented shape of the diamond shows off a unique square cut and diamond-shaped table (the first of its kind in the world) and makes for an incredibly special anniversary gift.
TEN YEARS: A DECADE OF DECADENCE
Celebrate time spent together as a couple with a gift that makes a statement as you commemorate a decade of love. Surprise your significant other with a diamond jewellery creation they can wear on any occasion, come day or night. A diamond tennis bracelet is the epitome of such a creation. Worn alone or layered with other bracelets, this beautiful gift can be the start of a fine jewellery collection. Another memorable present is one of Shimansky’s half eternity rings; something that can be worn every day as a constant reminder of what you mean to each other.
THIRTY YEARS: THE LOVE OF A LIFETIME
Congratulations; 30 years is truly a lifetime with someone special. Remember all the wonderful memories with a breathtakingly beautiful jewellery piece a significant other will never forget. If the love of your life doesn’t have one already, a full eternity ring (to wear with a wedding and engagement set) is an extraordinary option. Tip: pair the metal with that of their wedding set or chose a current one they love to wear. If it’s a particularly individual piece you’re after, look no further than a fancy yellow diamond ring. The world’s most valuable yellow gemstone, this shade of diamond makes for a flawless statement ring or an added addition of an engagement ring in celebration of 30 years of devotion.
