The 55th anniversary is a truly special occasion, so use this list of themes linked with this anniversary year to come up with a gift that will impress your loved ones.
Modern 55th Anniversary Theme for Gifts: Emerald
Emeralds have two meanings, the first being a symbol of true love. An emerald is said to change shade if the wearer is unfaithful, so giving the gift of emeralds on the 55th anniversary is a sign of devotion and adoration. As green is also linked with creativity and spring, emeralds are also thought to offer the wearer new chances.
Alternate Stone: Emerald
Colour: Emerald Green
Floral Theme: Calla Lily or a **Green Rose
The beauty of the calla lily is associated with the qualities of faith and purity in the Christian religion. The Romans also assigned a meaning of sensuality with the long stalk, and so the calla lily represents both spiritual and physical sides of a successful marriage.
**The green rose is a romantic alternative for this anniversary, in keeping with the colour theme, and the symbol of eternal love that a rose represents.
