Choosing the perfect gift to celebrate Your 7th Wedding Anniversary

Choosing the perfect gift to celebrate Your 7th Wedding Anniversary

Irish author Paul Sweeney once said that “A wedding anniversary is the celebration of love, trust, partnership, tolerance and tenacity. The order varies for any given year.” As each anniversary of such a wedding approaches, it’s time to carefully consider which gift to choose.

A quick check of the list of wedding anniversary years tells us that the seventh is known as the “copper”. Through history, this element has come to represent both good luck and prosperity. The Ancient Egyptians used the ankh hieroglyph to represent copper and it had the further meaning of “eternal life”.

The history of wedding anniversary gifts

It’s believed that the idea of celebrating these happy events came from Germany in medieval times. If a couple lived to complete twenty-five years of marriage, friends would present the wife with a silver wreath to mark her good fortune of prolonged life. Thankfully, nowadays, you don’t have to wait that long and can celebrate every single year!

The wonderful world of copper

Beads made from copper and which are believed to be over ten thousand years old have been found in Iraq. This highlights its durability and it has been called “man’s eternal metal”. Indeed, it is reckoned that 80% of the copper ever produced on our planet is still in use today! One of the legendary Dead Sea Scrolls was made from copper and over eighty tonnes was used in constructing the Statue of Liberty.


Searching out that perfect copper anniversary gift

What should you look out for when choosing your gift? You will want it to show the thought you have put into your selection. Thankfully, there is an obvious answer. A terrific choice would be a piece of copper jewellery. It will be long-lasting and, like the relationship, change and mature through the years.

Many of these stylish pieces use carefully beaten copper which is then skilfully polished and slowly handcrafted into a range of shapes. Each object is unique, because of this process. Examples of these include simple discs, flowers or hearts. These are then set into a range of stunning objects such as earrings, pendants and bangles. You may even find a beautiful knotwork necklace, where the unbroken loops surely reflect the strength of the bonds of marriage.

As you take your time in choosing that perfect 7th wedding anniversary gift, you can be sure to carefully select one which reflects your deep and enduring feelings.
