IVORY - 14th Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas
(or Gold Jewelry, Opal & Agate Gemstone)



Traditionally, the choice for 14th wedding anniversary gift was ivory and people bought incredible carvings made from the tusks of elephants slaughtered for their ivory. Today, we know it's not only inappropriate to give ivory (and support the traffic of it), but it's also an indefensible choice for a 14th anniversary gift.

It is however possible to give carvings of vegetable ivory (ivory-nut palm), a very hard white nut that can be carved into beautiful figurines or jewelry – as a tribute to saving elephants. Several tropical American palms are known to produce vegetable ivory, but one of the most important is Phytelephas Aequatorialis, also known as the ivory-nut palm. The generic name Phytelephas literally means "elephant plant.

One could also buy ivory coloured dresses or accessories as 14th anniversary gifts. In fact, they wear well with the modern alternative fourteenth wedding anniversary gift, namely gold jewelry. Imagine a beautiful ivory coloured Grecian styled dress with gold leaf jewelry with a gold belt. The image is positively Olympian.

For your 14th wedding anniversary gifts, consider some of these interesting examples of gold jewelry and ivory coloured gifts or clothing. Fairy Godmother tip; if your partner is an absolute stickler for tradition, and demands genuine ivory, there is no better way than to bring it with elephant attached. Now that would be one of the more interesting 14th anniversary gift ideas. Make sure you have a very, very big back yard.
