30 years of marriage is a milestone worthy of celebration! The traditional “pearl” themed anniversary gift is meant to symbolize purity, honesty, and the strength of a mature relationship.
However, modern times have made it acceptable to give diamonds, jade, and lilies to your significant other for this special occasion.
Before diving into the 30th anniversary gift ideas on this list, though, here’s a brief rundown of the meaning behind this annivesarie’s theme.
The Meaning Behind the 30 Year Anniversary Gift
The traditional 30th anniversary gift is a pearl. Pearls symbolize purity and honesty, and because they take time to form, they also symbolize the beauty of a relationship that has matured over a long period of time.
In modern times, diamonds and jade are also acceptable alternative gemstones for your 30th anniversary. Diamonds are the emblem of commitment and faithfulness, and jade symbolizes harmony and longevity.
Lilies are also an acceptable 30 year wedding anniversary gift and are a wedding staple. This flower is the symbol of modesty and is considered good luck in marriage!
