Pearls have long woven themselves as timeless symbols of purity and longevity. Although most commonly known for their connection to 30th anniversaries - representing the love of a marriage that has lasted for three decades, we often see couples gifting luxury pearl gifts for many different milestone anniversaries.
The Tradition of Pearl Gifts for Anniversaries:
The tradition of gifting pearls to mark significant anniversaries stems back centuries and is often linked to the origin of pearls. While beliefs all over the world differ, most cultures refer to the divine and magical origin of this jewel.
Men and women from ancient times used to adorn their body with pearls, since they were considered a talisman full of powers. People said that wearing pearls made friendships stronger and they were even able to calm the anger against other people and, of course, the symbolism of pearls in relationships, meant they were always known to signify the purest love, acting as an emblem of enduring relationships.
Pearl Gifts for the 1st Anniversary:
There’s no better way to celebrate your first anniversary than with the time-honoured tradition of gifting pearls.
As well as offering a meaningful gift for your first year of marriage, pearls are also practical for everyday wear. They can be layered with most types of jewellery (see our Instagram for inspo!), are collectables and work with any fashion accessory and outfit.
Celebrating a Decade: 10th Anniversary Pearl Gifts:
A decade of love deserves a symbol of enduring elegance. While tin or aluminium is the official gift of a 10th anniversary, we believe something a little more special is deserved as well as or instead! Celebrate a decade of marriage with meaningful pearl gifts. Every piece Claudia skilfully designs has a story to tell and is carefully packaged here at our Hampshire workshop.
Timeless Elegance for the 30th Anniversary: Pearl Jubilee:
