A New Guide to Coral 35 Years Anniversary Cards and Gifts

What is the 35th Wedding Anniversary?

It is a time to celebrate a life together and all those magical moments over an amazing three and a half decades. Coral, through history has had sacred and magical properties, and is said to protect against sterility. The fabulous pinkie-orange colour and its association with the warm tropical seas makes it a prized possession to wear.

I always add a list of Anniversaries as it helps when choosing presents and cards for those special days.  All our significant Wedding Anniversaries are connected to precious metals or stones, the higher the years marriage the more precious the symbol.  From the 1st anniversary being paper to the extraordinary 75th Wedding Anniversary, which is a diamond. This was originally the only Diamond Wedding Anniversary until the 60th was added in 1897 to celebrate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee – so now we have two!
