52 Year Anniversary Gifts Traditions
While some anniversary years are well known and are marked with certain materials and symbols as milestones in a married couple’s journey through life, the 52nd wedding anniversary is not one of these. When the original lists were created in the 1930s, only every fifth year after the 20th wedding anniversary was marked out for special attention with chosen symbols and themes, and so the 52nd year of marriage was omitted.
More recently, new lists have been drawn up which link new materials and themes with each year of marriage and the 52nd wedding anniversary, like the 40th anniversary before it, is linked with the precious gemstone ruby.
If you would like to give your loved ones a really special and significant gift on their 52nd wedding anniversary, you may want to reflect this theme in your 52 year anniversary gift ideas.
