22nd Wedding Anniversary

The Basics

The 22nd wedding anniversary may be known as the "Copper Anniversary." Copper is a material associated with this anniversary, although couples often give gifts that are representative of the metal, such as jewelry, home décor items, or cookware. Some couples choose to celebrate this milestone by taking a trip, having a special meal together, or exchanging heartfelt gifts. Ultimately, the way a couple celebrates their 22nd anniversary is a personal decision and can be tailored to their individual preferences and style.

Spinel gem

Spinel is associated with the twenty-second wedding anniversary.

I'll be honest and admit I'd never heard of spinel before. It's possibly not the most obvious gemstone you think of, or even know about, when mulling over gifts.

But if you're here at the 22nd anniversary, it's time to become acquainted.

Spinel, not the artificial stuff, is a rare and beautiful gem which is available in many colors to suit every taste, including red, blue, green, brown, black, lilac, purple, orange, rose and nearly colorless.

Experts say it has "excellent wearability" so could be a wonderful jewelry gift.
