How to Choose an Anniversary Gift for Your Girlfriend or Wife

Everybody knows that jewelry is the perfect gift for a girlfriend on their anniversary. But what type of jewelry should you buy? What does it mean to get her a pearl necklace? Diamond earrings? These are all great questions, and I'll answer them one by one.


The first question is: what type of jewelry should you buy her at all? That's an easy question to answer; any girl would love getting anything from diamonds or pearls to gold rings or necklaces with gemstones in them. When buying your girlfriend something like this, make sure it's not too expensive because if she doesn't like the gift, it will be wasted money.


What is your girlfriend's favorite color and gemstone, if any?

What is your girlfriends favorite color? 

Something that plays a significant role when the husband comes to choose the best anniversary gift for wife is the color and meaning behind the romantic gift itself. There's a gemstone for each month of the year, so you can choose the piece of jewelry that represents the month your partner was born.


If you're not familiar with birthstones and their coinciding months, see below:


January = Red Garnet Stone

July = Red Ruby

February = Purple Amethyst

August = Peridot

March = Aquamarine Stone

September = Blue Sapphire

April = Diamond

October = Opal

May = Green Emerald

November = Citrine

June = Pearl

December = Turquoise


Often, diamonds represent a considerable commitment in a relationship, primarily used as the ring for marriage. A very exciting relationship milestone is the 40th wedding anniversary -usually marked with a Ruby to boast significance on a beautiful, momentous occasion.


Something else that you must take into consideration when looking for the best anniversary gifts for girlfriends or wives is the color. Are you looking for her favorite color?


Here at Sitara Collections, our jewelry comes in a plethora of colors for you to choose from. Let's take a look at a couple!


  • Purple - A color that flatters almost every skin tone out there, and compliments various styles of clothing. Purple is a color that radiates charm, and draws attention to natural beauty.


  • Blue - The color blue is usually worn in a formal or business setting. Blue jewelry is said to represent trustworthiness and loyalty in a long-term relationship.


  • Green - Ah, green -it boasts so many shades! You have your shades of emerald, mint, jade, and even neon. If your wife or girlfriend is in love with nature, or cherishes calm, serenity, and down-to-earth traits, then this color is perfect. Green gemstones are typically worn with contrasting outfit colors like white, copper, black, gold, or brown.


  • Red - Such an eye-capturing color. There's something about the color red that just attracts attention and makes it stand out. Typically, red is used to signify passion, romance, and love. Red gemstones naturally compliment dark grey or white outfits.


  • Pink - The color pink is highly versatile. Your wife or girlfriend can not only wear this with a wide range of colors, but also styles. This feminine, delicate color can be worn with anything - from a t-shirt and jeans, to fancy formal wear. Pink is said to symbolize affection, harmony, friendship, inner peace, kindness, and support.
