GARNET - 18th Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas
(or Porcelain & Cat's Eye Gemstone)



The traditional choice of 18th wedding anniversary gift ideas were the various types of garnet jewelry or even cups with inlaid garnet stones. In use from Roman times, name comes from the Latin word `granatus’ from the pomegranate seed it resembles. My husband still has a little garnet pinkie ring he bought years ago, which he calls his happy ring.

Traditionally set in gold, the deep red garnet provides a beautiful contrast to the gold and it is easy to see why it is such a happy choice of gifts for 18th wedding anniversary. Fortunately, the garnet is not particularly expensive and is therefore within the scope of most budgets.

There are so many beautiful examples of fine porcelain available in most fine department stores and so many would be worthy as an 18th anniversary gift. Whether you go for traditional china set or fine vase, or stay traditional with some lovely garnet jewelry, it is the sentiment that go with them that make them ideal 18th anniversary gifts.
