Meanings to Wedding Anniversaries

Question from Charles (United Kingdom)

I was wondering if there was any meanings to wedding anniversaries years 16 through to 19? I noticed that you do not have them in the wedding anniversary symbols list.

Thanks for your help.


Hi Charles,

Thank you for your question!

We are just in the process of adding pages for the years 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th wedding anniversaries.

But to answer your question:

For the 16th wedding anniversary there is no traditional gift but the modern associated present is silver hollowware. The 16th anniversary gemstone is peridot.

Your 17th anniversary is celebrated with the modern symbol of furniture. As an alternative watches can be used instead.

Porcelin is the modern 18th wedding anniversary gift symbol. For the associated gemstone is opal, cat's eyes are also appropriate.

19th wedding anniversary modern symbol is bronze, and the gemstone is aquamarine.

History of Wedding Anniversary Meanings

There is no traditional symbols for these years only a modern gift, and gemstones.

Look out for our coming 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th anniversary pages!

All the best,
