Stage of Relationship / Milestones

Perhaps the finest tangible way of commemorating different stages of a relationship is sanctifying them with jewelry - something you feel best symbolizes the unbroken bond you have shared for so long. This obviously differs from person to person, but some ideas worth considering - and even building upon - include gold jewelry to mark your first year together, diamonds to mark your tenth year, platinum jewelry and/or emerald gemstones for your twentieth, Ruby or Garnet stones marking your fortieth, Fancy Blue diamonds for your landmark fiftieth anniversary, and so on.
