Waiting until your tenth anniversary to dish out diamonds? Drop the old-fashioned gift guide and go with your intuition.
In the early twentieth century it was tradition to give her a shiny yellow diamond on your 60th anniversary. Though modern customs have made that wait a little less excruciating, it still seems like a bit much to wait ten years to give a classic piece of diamond jewelry.
We’ve got some good news: you don’t have to wait. Diamond jewelry is so versatile, modern, and yes — affordable — that it’s not necessary to wait a decade to indulge in something so beautiful and timeless.
