Emerald Jewelry for your 20th Wedding Anniversary

Congratulations on 20 years of marriage! It took many trials and errors to get where you are today, and you’ve made many beautiful memories, so you want this year’s anniversary gift to be something wonderful! The emerald gemstone represents the 20-year mark, and it makes beautiful emerald jewelry that would be perfect for your beloved spouse on this special day!

The Significance of the Emerald as an Anniversary Gift

The traditional 20th anniversary gift from loved ones is China; i.e., a dish set, matching cups, etc. But couples often choose to exchange emerald jewelry for a gift that is even more memorable and enduring. Emeralds consist of chromium, which gives it the green color we see, and trace amounts of iron, which give it a strength that few other gemstones have. In these ways emeralds represent the strength of your relationship and the depth of your commitment to each other.

Why is the Emerald the Traditional 20th Anniversary Gift

The emerald gemstone is very strong, so many people give their spouse emerald jewelry for their 20th anniversary. It endures daily abuse and retains its shine and sparkle, much like your 20-year marriage does! Some people call emeralds invincible, and believe it symbolizes things they hope to have, or keep, in their marriage for the next 20 years, such as:


  • Prosperity
  • Cheer
  • Endurance
  • Strength

    Today, the ring symbolizes eternal feelings that move ever forward, just as the circular bands have no end. A sapphire ring expresses that undying love for your spouse and the commitment that shines as brightly as the ring’s beautiful stone. A sapphire necklace sparkles for the world to see, and can be worn every day, for every occasion and activity, so it makes a great anniversary gift. Sapphire earrings are delicate and precious, just like the person receiving them, and they make wonderful complements to other sapphire jewelry pieces.

    Popular Emerald Jewelry Gifts


    Emerald rings are a favorite among 20-year couples. You can wear an emerald ring anywhere, and it will stand as strong as the day you bought it. You also don’t have to worry about what matches with an emerald ring; its ability to reflect and shine with the light and other colors make it beautiful no matter what you wear. Emeralds have a striking green hue that is is unmatched by any other gemstone.


    Emerald earrings make lovely accessories for special occasions. They catch the eye with their brilliance and shine, and they’re a great conversation piece at dinner parties or holiday dinners.


    Emerald necklaces can also resist a good deal of abuse, allowing people to wear them, even during work outs, hikes, date nights, and playing with the little ones. Delicate chains, however, should be guarded with care, but the emerald gemstone itself can withstand the test of time! The green hue is a perfect match for colors like blue and a complement to yellow, red or warm hues. Therefore it’s a great gem to pair with any outfit. Emeralds also pair very well with diamonds. So feel free to get a gift that has both gemstones.

    Which Emerald Jewelry Gift Should You Get?

    Any emerald jewelry gift would be beautiful for your dearly beloved. However, choose the gift you wish to give them carefully. We have a list of a few things to consider when shopping for emerald jewelry:


  • Lifestyle- What are your spouse’s hobbies? What does he or she do for a living? Long necklaces would present a hazard if she wants to wear the necklace daily but does not want it to get in the way of her daily routine.
  • Personal style- Is your spouse higher maintenance or low key? Flashy and non-traditional designs wouldn’t be suitable most casual types. Something like a small ring or stud earrings may be a good fit.
  • Jewelry metals- Make sure you know whether your spouse is allergic to any metals before buying your emerald jewelry. If you have any concerns, you can consider purchasing platinum, as that is a hypoallergenic metal.
  • Gem cut/style- Do they prefer round brilliant or square cut, or large vs. small stones? Try to take a look at other jewelry they have purchased in the past and get something along those lines.
