Celebrating Your Sixty-fifth Anniversary

The original anniversary gift symbol lists stopped at the fifty-fifth anniversary and jumped to the seventy-fifth anniversary. The sixtieth, sixty-fifth, and seventieth wedding anniversaries were not included, and did not have any traditional or modern gift categories associated with them.

When Queen Victoria celebrated her sixtieth jubilee (or Diamond Jubilee), the sixtieth anniversary was included for the first time on anniversary gift lists. After the sixtieth anniversary was added, with diamond as both modern and traditional gift suggestions, lists also included seventieth anniversaries with the same category – diamond as both modern and traditional gift symbols.

The sixty-fifth anniversary was not included until recently, when some lists associated sapphire as the modern and traditional gift symbol for sixty-fifth anniversaries. For some reason, many lists still have not added a sixty-fifth anniversary to their anniversary gift lists.

Blue Sapphire Gift Suggestions

Sapphire stone is the traditional and modern gift suggestion for the 65th wedding anniversary, and giving your significant other with a gift related to sapphire will surely make the sixty-fifth a memorable anniversary. After spending sixty-five years with your partner you have no doubt realized that he or she is the most precious one in your life, deserving of a precious stone gift.

Sapphire means blue in Greek. Sapphire stones are characterized by their extreme hardness, their color, and transparency. The blue sapphire is often called the gem of the sky and it comes in many shades of blue, ranging from the deep blue of the evening sky to the mid-blue of a summer’s day sky.

In ancient times it was believed that the earth was embedded in a big blue sapphire, the reason why the sky is blue. In many civilizations, the blue sapphire is a symbol of heaven. In modern times, Prince Philip gave a blue sapphire to Queen Elizabeth as an engagement ring. Later, Prince Charles gave that same blue sapphire to Lady Diana for their engagement.

Almost everyone loves blue, and the blue sapphire is the perfect stone to give.
