About 34th Wedding Anniversaries
The 34th wedding anniversary does not have a traditional gift; however, the modern gift is widely considered to be opal. Opals are a gemstone with a unique quality, they display an array of very brilliant miniature rainbow iridescent effects, all mixed together. They are predominantly mined in Australia, making up 95% of the world’s opals, so it is no wonder opals are Australia’s official national gemstone.
Opals are widely available across the world and used in beautiful jewellery and ornamental pieces.
With there being no traditional gift, why not have a bit of fun with the modern gift of opal and have a play with the theme, think Australian-inspired gifts, keeping (sort of) to the opal brief!
How to Celebrate a 34th Wedding Anniversary
A barbeque would be an obvious Australian-inspired anniversary celebration. Why not go the extra mile and source some more exotic meats to try (anyone for crocodile or kangaroo steaks?!).
Alternatively, your usual barbeque spread will be sure to go down a treat with your partner and family!
Surely Love is a wonderful thing. It is more precious than emeralds, and dearer than fine opals. Pearls and pomegranates cannot buy it, nor is it set forth in the marketplace. It may not be purchased of the merchants, for can it be weighed out in the balance for gold.” Quoted by: Oscar Wilde
34th Wedding Anniversary Gifts for Him, Her… and the Couple
Returning to opals… the versatile gemstone comes in many different shades: white, yellow, red, blue, green and brown. A colourless opal is also available but, with those stunning threads of colour slicing through the gem, most people tend to opt for the coloured versions.
They are perfect for jewellery, so perhaps you could choose a bracelet, pendant or necklace with opals integrated into their settings? Or, alternatively, you could buy each other an opal ring that will provide timeless memories of your 34th wedding anniversary and future years together.
