Anniversary By Years

Whether it a first anniversary or a diamond sapphire (75 years), it is a momentous occasion that should be celebrated with a gift of love.  For many years, gifts have followed a traditional list that determines the material that might be used.  

More modern and alternate trends are catching on with gifts more attuned to life in the 21st century.  The most popular years that we have seen are:

15th anniversary as the traditional year to celebrate with Crystal


3rd anniversary as an alternative/modern year commemorated with Crystal and Glass

However, any year is good to give a crystal gift to the right person on their anniversary.  The important consideration is that the anniversary gift should last a lifetime.
