Diamonds: A 10-Year Anniversary Present To Celebrate With
A marital union is a milestone that is worth celebrating as it signifies the culmination of a couple’s love and devotion to form the next chapter of their lives. However, weddings are a mere stopgap in a relationship and the journey that comes after is an entirely different ball game altogether.
Which reasons why each passing year is to be celebrated and commemorated! Going back to medieval times, couples have been gifting each other anniversary gifts to mark and honour the years they’ve spent together as a married couple. During the Holy Roman Empire, husbands would gift their wives a silver and gold wreath on their 25th and 50th anniversaries respectively – which is why they’re coined as the silver and gold anniversaries.
Similar to other traditions, certain aspects have evolved to fit modern standards. What used to be gifts made from paper, pottery and copper have evolved to jewellery – particularly gold, pearl and diamond jewellery. Instead of the traditional gift of aluminium or tin, couples who have reached their 10-year milestone will often opt for a diamond as their preferred gift. The allure of a diamond’s beauty and its outstanding durability easily make this gem the perfect gift for an important milestone.
The New Type Of Diamond
Similarly, diamonds have undergone some form of evolution too! With the rate in which technology has advanced, it was only a matter of time before the industry introduced a gem that can easily rival a mined diamond. That diamond alternative came in the form of a lab grown diamond.
Lab grown diamonds are produced in a controlled environment, where diamond seeds get exposed to intense heat and pressure similar to the natural geological process that birth mined diamonds. There are two ways they go about it: HPHT diamond machines or chambers that are rich in carbon gas. Whilst they may have different origins than their mined counterparts, this process allows the diamonds to grow with their own set of inflexions and imperfects. If there are no two diamonds that are the same, then it would apply for lab made diamonds as well!
On top of having the same optical, physical and chemical properties as mined diamonds, these lab grown diamonds are projected as an option that is more environmentally-friendly and sustainable. As such, these aspects have easily made them a popular option for gift giving.
The Type Of Diamond Jewellery That They’ll Like
Shopping for an anniversary gift is intimidating as it is, and it doesn’t get any better even if you do narrow it down to the diamond category. On top of the myriad of options to choose from, there are many considerations you’ll need to take note of when picking the ideal diamond.
If you’re not quite certain where to start, it’s always helpful to equip yourself with the 4Cs of a diamond (clarity, colour, carat weight and cut) as they dictate the quality and ultimately the price of the jewellery.
Once you’re equipped with the basic diamond education, you can start narrowing the type of diamond jewellery to gift your loved one! Let’s take a look at some of the timeless designs that may just tickle their fancy.
