Traditional vs modern wedding anniversary gifts

As your wedding anniversary comes closer, you may be wondering what you should gift your loved one on this special day.

Here, we have a list of traditional and modern present ideas to give your other half as you celebrate your relationship together.

First anniversary

Celebrating your first anniversary is very special. Together, you have made it through your first year of marriage and it's exciting looking to the future and anticipating what's to come. Paper is the traditional symbol of a first anniversary – so perhaps a handmade drawing or card may be given. For those who prefer modern gift-giving, Hallmark suggests something clock-related. A stunning watch is a wonderful gift idea for men and women, and is something that can be worn daily all year round – an excellent reminder of your love for them!

20th anniversary

Traditionally, china is given for 20th wedding anniversaries with platinum being the more modern offering, according to Hallmark. We have platinum rings for men as well as several gorgeous ‚Äčpieces for women made with this metal, so no matter who you are buying for at this special time, there is plenty to choose from at Showcase.

50th anniversary

Gold is the recommended gift for those celebrating their 50th anniversary, and this British tradition has now been carried all over the world. Whether you would like to treat your dearest with a beautiful gold necklace or a gold ring to symbolise a love that has stood the test of time, your local Showcase Jeweller has a variety of options for you to choose the perfect piece. There is no modern gift equivalent for celebrating your 50th – this day calls for something extra special and you can't beat gold!

Confidence: The fifth C

When selecting diamonds, there are four indicators of diamond quality that we recommend you look out for and that we strive to provide the best in all of these areas: colour, clarity, cut and carat. On top of this we offer a fifth C: confidence.

We want each and every one of our customers to feel confident in their decision to choose Showcase Jewellers as their preferred diamond destination. We pride ourselves on excellent service, an array of diamonds for a variety of budgets and an understanding that our customers want to look their best.

Whether you are looking for delicate diamond jewellery or a stunning engagement ring, we want to help you find the perfect gem within your budget. We provide you with the integrity and honesty you deserve when looking for that special item you'll wear for many years to come.

If a diamond seems too low in price or just generally too good to be true, it probably is – and it is with this thought in mind that we will guide you honestly and knowledgeably to a diamond jewellery piece that you will love and afford. Combining our experience with your dreams, we are confident that we can bring you the perfect diamond. 

Diamonds can help you to feel like a million dollars, oozing confidence and looking simply fabulous. We want that confidence to begin the moment you walk through the door of a Showcase Jeweller, knowing you're putting your trust into the hands of experts – experts who will ensure you look and feel amazing when you walk out of the store. If you're looking to purchase diamond jewellery online then start by taking a look at our Showcase Guide to buying diamonds.

Trending in 2014: Pearls

Popping up across runways, fashion blogs and magazines right now is the ever-fashionable pearl. A jewellery classic, pearls have been worn for decades by women looking to add a glimmer of elegance to their outfit – and today, that desire still exists.

Designers such as Chanel and Dior are getting aboard the trend this season, as the hunt for stunning accessories continues and we see pearls of all shapes and sizes adorning the world's most fashionable. Here are a few of our recommendations to keep you as glamorous as ever this winter.

Pearl necklace

This timelessly elegant piece can bring a chic, sophisticated look to any outfit and we highly recommend these for events such as dinner parties or lunches – and even for work! Such versatility means that you can enjoy pearls all year round. Take a cue from Chanel and try bigger, chunkier pieces for a more modern look, or enjoy a classic aesthetic with finer strings of pearls.

Pearl earrings

‚ÄčAmong the pearl earring's top supporters this season? None other than fashion powerhouse Dior, which is taking a modern twist on an old favourite. Enjoy these simple yet stunning pieces that really brighten the whites of your eyes – they should be a staple in every lady's jewellery box.

Winter is designed for cosy nights by the fire, dinner with friends and glasses of red wine. Pearls work with all these activities – and they really complement your winter fashion! The darker hues of navy, black, oxblood and mustard that we often see on runways during these cooler months look gorgeous when teamed with a white or cream pearl, whereas rose pink pearls can liven up lighter outfits. 

If you are looking for something special to add to your jewellery box, or perhaps a gift for a loved one, pearls are an undying trend that we will continue to see for decades to come. You can buy pearls online with Showcase Jewellers, confident in the knowledge that we source quality jewellery.
