TIN, ALUMINIUM, PEWTER -
10 Year Anniversary Gifts
(or Diamonds)



Objects of tin, pewter (or in more recent times aluminium) are the items of choice for 10 year anniversary gifts. It is the anti-corrosive nature of tin that made it such a prized metal for such a long time. Bronze is mostly copper with a bit of tin (about 10-12%) but pewter is mostly tin with only a little bit of copper (also about 10%).

There are many who might say that tin is too poor a gift for a milestone like a ten year wedding anniversary, but it has to be remembered that tin was for the most part considered a precious commodity and a pewter plate could last many lifetimes. So traditionally, tin or pewter was considered a very handsome 10 year anniversary gift.

By Napoleon’s time, aluminium which was difficult to extract, became even more precious than gold, and the Emperor was quite proud of the fact that he had an aluminium cutlery set. I’m not sure whether he got it from Josephine as a 10 year anniversary present. When asked what she would like as a tenth anniversary gift, she replied `Italy would be nice!’ Most other guys would have just got her a pewter jug.

Large loose diamond.10 year wedding anniversary gifts are precious by design. Today, gifts of tin may not be as prized as they once were, and many modern couples (let’s face it, husbands!) celebrate the milestone with diamonds. She celebrates. He pays. There’s synergy for you (hehehe!).

All jokes aside, it isn’t really about the present, it’s the sentiment that counts, and 10 year anniversary gift ideas don’t have to break the bank. It’s the imagery of a precious gift that defies the passing of time, which symbolizes the love that knows not wrinkles or human frailties, but endures unblemished for ages.
