19th Wedding Anniversary

The Basics

The 19th wedding anniversary is traditionally known as the "Bronze Anniversary." Some couples celebrate by giving gifts made of bronze or incorporating the color bronze into their celebrations. Other couples may choose to mark the occasion with a special trip or event that reflects their relationship and the journey they have shared thus far. Ultimately, the way a couple chooses to celebrate their anniversary is a personal decision and can be tailored to their individual preferences and style.

Traditional Gift: None

Interestingly, after 15 years the traditional gifts tend to go up in five year intervals. However, that doesn’t mean you can get out of buying a gift on your nineteenth anniversary!

After 19 years together, you are sure to have your own traditions, so pick something personal to you as a couple and go with that. It may be the thought that counts, but do make sure you translate that thought into something heartfelt and meaningful, as you celebrate together.

Modern Gift: Bronze/ Chili Pepper Roses

A modern 19th wedding anniversary present is bronze.

Bronze, an amalgam of tin and copper, represents a strong marriage formed by the joining of two individuals as a couple. It emphasises love and a high priority on spending time together.

There are plenty of ornate objects, some with practical usage, which could be gifted. These include bronze pots, frames, bracelets and ornaments. Many of these items are handmade by skilled craftsmen, and hence speak of commitment and dedication when given as a gift.

A wide range of both decorative and practical gifts can be bought made from bronze including tableware, statues and artwork.

Chili Pepper Roses

This modern gift idea is a bit of a mystery. We've seen it listed on a few occasions but can't find out a whole lot about it. It's not helped by the musical connections which keep popping up if you search for "chili peppers"!

That said, a spicy dish of chilli could be something your partner would love, assuming they actually like fiery food. Alternatively, who can go wrong with roses of any variety, either as cut flowers or a living shrub for the garden.

Make the gift extra special by choosing from handmade artisan jewelry, with the same convenience of Amazon online shopping.

Associated Gemstone: Aquamarine

Aquamarine is associated with the 19th wedding anniversary. This beautiful green-blue gemstone is reminiscent of clear crystal waters and the sea, and represents truth, trust and "letting go".

In ancient times, aquamarine was believed to be mermaid treasure, and hence was worn by sailors as a talisman of good luck.

Many items of jewelry are available using aquamarine. It pairs particularly well with silver and white gold, or with other stones such as peridot.

Associated Flower: Sweet Pea/ Chrysanthemum

Chrysanthemum flower

Two flowers associated with the 19th wedding anniversary are the sweet pea and the chrysanthemum.

Sweet Pea

Sweet peas are beautiful, highly scented flowers which add grace to any flower arrangement or garden display.

The sweet pea is often gifted at weddings. It's a wonderful plant to grow in the garden and to use in cut flower arrangements, where its wonderful perfume will fill a room.


These cheery flowers exude joy. They represent happiness, fidelity, honesty and friendship. The chrysanthemum is revered in Asia, while in Japan its yellow coloring represents immortality. The Chinese culture sees chrysanthemums as representing nobility and permanence — the Chinese nae for the flower means "essence of the sun".
