Whether you’re celebrating your first anniversary or your 50th, choosing a gift that represents your bond can be challenging. Gemstone jewelry is often considered a traditional anniversary gift—but with plenty of options for customization, it can become a unique symbol of your continued devotion. After all, there’s nothing more romantic than a gift that comes from the heart.

Here are five ways to personalize your anniversary gift for your one and only:

 

1. HAVE IT ENGRAVED

 

Make it clear that your gift is for one person and one person only with a personalized engraving. From nicknames to your wedding date to the coordinates of the place you first met, there are plenty of ways to personalize a piece of jewelry and tailor it for that special someone. Keep the message personal with engravings that celebrate who you are as a couple—past, present, and future.

2. DESIGN IT YOURSELF

 

Did you see a pair of emerald earrings that would be perfect if they just came in a different cut or were set in white gold? You don’t have to limit yourself to the styles you see on our website. KAY can help you design a unique anniversary gift that the object of your affection will cherish for years to come.

Whether you have a specific idea in mind or want to talk through your options, our Jewelry Consultants can help. Start with a virtual appointment and let your imagination soar—we’re here to bring your vision to life.

3. RE-CREATE A VINTAGE PIECE

 

Vintage jewelry is unique and timeless, but finding the right piece can be hit or miss. If you’re shopping for someone who loves the vintage look, why not design something just for them? From deco and retro to mid-20th century, there are a number of different styles that are considered vintage and they all have their own unique features. Start by paying attention to the types of jewelry your significant other gravitates toward. From there, we can help you create a vintage-inspired custom anniversary gift that is both thoughtful and romantic.

4. ADD A MODERN TWIST

 

Any anniversary is cause for celebration, but certain milestones call for a little extra thought. The traditional 10-year anniversary gift is diamond, but think about how you can add a unique spin to your choice. From going with a different color (blue or black are both elegant choices), to adding another gemstone to the setting, thinking outside the box will give you the opportunity to get creative and customize an anniversary gift that will stand the test of time, just like your relationship.

5. GET MATCHING PIECES

 

Prove the strength of your bond by treating yourselves to matching jewelry. You don’t have to opt for the exact same style, but choosing an engraving that you both love, such as a quote or a significant date, can make you feel even more connected. Not every anniversary gift has to be a surprise—picking out the perfect gifts together can help bring you closer and set you up for many more years of happiness.
