35th Wedding Anniversary

The Basics

The 35th wedding anniversary is a significant milestone in a couple's marriage journey. It is also known as the "coral" anniversary, symbolizing the strength and resilience of a marriage bond that has lasted 35 years.

Over the years, couples have faced many challenges and opportunities to grow together. By the 35th anniversary, the couple has likely built a strong foundation for their relationship and has weathered many storms together.

The coral anniversary is a time for the couple to reflect on their journey together, celebrate their love and commitment, and renew their vows to each other. It is also a time to express gratitude for the blessings of their relationship, such as children, grandchildren, and shared memories.

Traditional Gift: Coral/ Jade

Jade jewelry


Coral is a traditional gift for the 35th wedding anniversary but it is generally not recommended to be given due to the dramatic loss of coral reef around the world and the ecological impacts being felt from its loss.

Much like the ethical and environmental issues surrounding diamond and ivory, sensibilities have changed over the decades.

Coral is extremely beautiful and represents beauty, strength and (somewhat ironically) resilience.

We would strongly advise not giving anything made from coral as a gift, but instead consider an alternative present.

This could include a special piece of jewelry featuring coral hues, a romantic getaway to a tropical destination with coral reefs, or a donation to a conservation organization dedicated to protecting coral reefs.


Jade is a precious stone which symbolizes longevity, fidelity, stability, and love.

There are many gifts inspired by jade which can be given including jewelry and sculpture.

Associated Gemstone: Emerald

Vibrant green emeralds are commonly used to make beautiful, attention-grabbing jewelry, with those featuring optimal shade and transparency potentially being more valuable than diamond.

Denoting such qualities and truth and love, the ancient Greeks and Romans saw emerald as the gemstone of the goddess Venus, representing love and hope.

The Inca and Egyptian cultures also treasured the emerald, seeing it as a source of eternal life, and being a gift from Thoth, the ancient god of wisdom.

Although the color green may be associated with envy, it also represents vitality. This is perhaps not surprising as nature is full of green, as we see each spring as new life bursts forth.

Emerald can represent new beginnings, which is possibly something a two decade marriage may desire or need. It also marks a faithful, deep and mature love.
