19th Anniversary Gifts: Garnet or Aquamarine
The traditional gift for the Nineteenth Wedding Anniversary is bronze which represented the resilience of your relationship after nearly two decades together. With children possibly grown up and leaving home, you may be entering a time when you are likely to have more time for each other and your shared interests. Garnet and Aquamarine are the gemstones associated with this anniversary.
Garnet is a stone symbolising romance, love and passion. While most associate garnet with red it actually occurs in a wide range of colours, including pink, purple, orange, yellow, and green. Garnets are very affordable and used in all types of jewellery, including necklaces, rings, bracelets, and earrings. Garnets attracted the pharaohs of Egypt and the czars of Russia, and Peter Carl Fabergé used them in some of his famous Easter Eggs.
