Amethysts for the most important lady in your life
Amethyst is a variety of quartz that is violet or purple in color, and very popular when used in jewelry. This semi precious stone is the traditional birthstone for February, as well as being the modern theme for a 33 year anniversary. An amethyst set in a piece of silver, gold, or platinum jewelry will make a stunning 33rd anniversary gift for her. Have the stone set into a pair of earrings, pendant, ring, bracelet, or watch.
The Ancient Greeks believed that the stone would protect them from drunkenness, and they either wore it or decorated drinking vessels with it to prevent intoxication. Generally the color of amethyst ranges from a light pinkish violet to a deep purple, but some stones may also have hints of red and blue. The best quality stones are found in Sri Lanka, Brazil, Siberia, and the Far East and the ideal grade is called ‘Deep Siberian’.
Amethyst has a long history. As far back as the Ancient Egyptians and Ancient Greeks they have been used not just for decorative purposes but also as a talisman. Medieval European soldiers wore amulets made from amethyst because it was believed it would protect them in battle, as it was able to heal people and prevent them from becoming hot-headed. Amethyst beads have been found in England in Anglo-Saxon graves. Tibetan people consider the stone to be sacred to Buddha and use it for prayer beads, and in England it was considered a symbol of royalty.
With such a symbolic history, it makes a great choice for your wife’s 33nd wedding anniversary gift. However, not everyone’s budget will stretch far enough to give her jewelry encrusted with such a valuable stone. Those of you working with a tight budget might want to opt for a gift that is colored purple, in order to reflect the theme without breaking the bank.
A purple-themed gift is an affordable alternative
Not everyone can afford to spend hundreds of dollars on a 33 year anniversary gift for her, which is why it is a great alternative to choose a gift that is purple-themed. Consider choosing an item of purple homeware, either something classical or contemporary, as it would be a stylish addition to your home. Always bear in mind the preferences of the female recipient, but it shouldn’t be a barrier, as there are vases, textiles, tableware and glasses that would make fabulous 33rd anniversary gifts. This type of gift is long-lasting, and everytime she uses it, she’ll be reminded of you.
A number of homeware items can be easily personalized. Pick out some purple cushions and have them embroidered with your names and the date of your wedding anniversary. Or you could choose a purple plaque that has been personalized with a message that comes from your heart.
Some of you may be wondering whether you have to follow a particular theme. You’ll be pleased to learn there are no rules to follow when searching for wedding anniversary gifts for her. Unless, of course, the intended recipient is a stickler for tradition. In which cause you’re kind of obliged to at least consider one of the popular themes.
Don’t feel pressured to follow a particular theme for her 33rd anniversary gifts
Wedding anniversaries have been celebrated for centuries, and it has become customary to follow certain anniversary themes. However, there is nothing in etiquette books that demand you follow the crowd.
Many anniversary celebrations have a flower associated with them, but for a 33rd anniversary there isn’t one. But that doesn’t mean you can’t give a loved one flowers. If flowers are the course of action you’re set on then you get to pick whatever color and type you think your wife will prefer. You also get to choose between a magnificent bouquet, a small posy, or a living plant for the home or to plant in the garden. A floral gift will always be appreciated by a woman, and you can add a little extra with the choice of flower having a secret meaning.
There is, however, a very small downside to buying a bouquet of flowers. How many other occasions have warranted a bouquet and the recipient has been disappointed because it didn’t last much longer than a week? An everlasting option would be a glazed and gold dipped rose in the color purple. A gift that will be given pride of place for many years to come.
