Thank goodness you live in the age of enlightenment. The traditional list of anniversary gemstones is now the more favored guide. Its origins date back to 1912 as established by European jewelers’ guilds. The Anniversary Gemstones shown above is the list officially recognized by Jewelers of America, the American Gem Society, the American Gem Trade Association, and the Gemological Institute of America (GIA).
