Just as every couple’s relationship is unique and worth celebrating, great care should be taken when choosing a first year every anniversary ring. Popular options for picking a timeless anniversary gift or ring that will be treasured for years include…


    • Romantic Getaway

    Plan a romantic getaway to celebrate your first anniversary. This can be a weekend trip to a nearby city including Nashville or Savannah, a cozy cabin in the woods, or a romantic beach vacation.


    • Birthstone Ring

    Consider a 1st-year anniversary ring featuring your partner's birthstone. Birthstones have a special significance and many couples prefer to opt for gemstones to avoid any humanitarian concerns that might be raised from the possibility of blood or conflict diamonds and unethical mining practices.



    • Stacking Rings

    Stacking rings are a delicate, thinner design than most wedding rings, with much smaller diamonds or rose cut diamonds adding to the sparkle. They allow you to mix and match different styles, textures, and metals to create a unique look that reflects your personal style.



    • Romantic Dinner

    A romantic dinner where you got engaged, at a fancy restaurant or a candlelit dinner at home can be a simple yet romantic way to celebrate your  first anniversary.


    • Gemstone Ring

    A 1st year anniversary ring featuring your partners favorite gemstone can be a timeless choice. Gemstone rings can be any style and are found in all jewelry eras from Edwardian and Victorian designs to bold Art Deco styles or sleek Mid-Century Modern pieces.


    • Couple's Spa Day

    A couple's spa day can be a relaxing and rejuvenating way to celebrate your anniversary and spend quality time together.

    Vintage and antique engagement rings have a rich history and longevity to their symbolism. Estate rings do not have conflict stones and couples can feel comfortable that their vintage ring played no role in the financing of civil wars and conflicts.


  • • Pearl Ring

    Pearls are a symbol of purity, and make a beautiful and timeless gift. Consider a beautiful pearl ring from the Edwardian era to commemorate your first anniversary.

    Choosing a 1 Year Anniversary Gift

    An anniversary gift or ring is just as meaningful and celebratory of a couple’s continuing union as the original wedding ring that first began that union with a question and a vow. Choosing an anniversary ring thoughtfully demonstrates the ongoing connection between partners, including all they have accomplished and all that is yet to come for them to celebrate together.
