BRONZE - 8th Wedding Anniversary Gift Ideas
(or Linen, Lace & Tourmaline Gemstone)



8th wedding anniversary gift ideas are replete with bronze images, though lace and linen are a little more contemporary. The real question is however, why bronze? The fact that bronze is an alloy of two other metals is merely coincidental. The truth is that bronze has always been the sculptor’s metal of choice and the reason is, a combination of a relatively low melting temperature and a very hard and durable finished product. In fact, bronze is harder and tougher than both its parent metals – a cool synergy. That is why there was a Bronze Age in the first place.

So it is with a now seasoned couple at their 8th wedding anniversary. They’ve made it past the seven-year itch and emerged out the other side – older, wiser – and looking back on the last eight years with serene satisfaction.

Bronze 8th wedding anniversary gifts symbolize the durability of the relationship and that is their true intent. There is something permanent and immutable in a bronze statue and it is that permanence that is channeled into the 8th anniversary gift. Eight years of happy marriage is something to be proud of, and grateful for and an 8 year anniversary statue is a fitting symbol.

If you really don’t have the space or money to buy (or make!) a giant bronze sculpture or you might imagine bronze figures a little ostentatious, linen or lace are a modern alternative for 8th anniversary gifts.
