22nd Anniversary Gift: Spinel
Traditionally a copper gift was appropriate for the 22nd anniversary. Copper symbolises prosperity, perfection and good fortune. Luckily there is also a more attractive gift option: spinel gemstone.
Natural Spinel is believed to encourage great passion, devotion, and longevity making it a wonderful gem to celebrate a twenty-second wedding anniversary. It is a rare gem that has surged in popularity in recent years. Spinel has long been mistaken for ruby or sapphire due to their similar characteristics. Natural spinel occurs in all shades from quite pale to very intense in all colours in the spectrum. Red spinel is generally the most desirable. Take care to source natural spinel from a reputable retailer as there are many inexpensive synthetic (man-made) spinels in the marketplace.
