Perfect jewellery for a Diamond Anniversary
A diamond wedding anniversary marks an incredible 60 years of marriage. As such, many 60th wedding anniversaries are celebrated by octagenarians or couples in their 80’s. Traditional names for this celebration include diamond anniversary, diamond wedding and diamond wedding anniversary.
At Serendipity Diamonds, many of our clients live in the area local to the Isle of Wight. Moreover, many of our clients look to us for inspiration and ideas for milestone wedding anniversaries. For example, one of our fabulous local couples recently celebrated their Ruby wedding anniversary with an incredible bespoke Ruby ring.
A diamond anniversary celebrated after 60 years of marriage demands a significant gift. Most buyers seek a precious, sentimental and highly personal item of jewellery themed to diamond. For this reason, we combine all elements as part of our service to create a truly incredible item of jewellery.
Yellow gold for a diamond anniversary
Most couples in their 80’s already own yellow gold. For this reason, yellow gold represents the most popular precious metal choice for a diamond anniversary. Conversely, Platinum runs closely behind, with many couples changing or upgrading to Platinum in their later years. We generally recommend a precious metal colour to suit existing jewellery. This remains good advice for men shopping without assistance from friends or relatives.
Diamond anniversary ideas – jewellery for women
Keep in mind 3 elements when you look for a unique diamond anniversary gift. Firstly, diamonds. Secondly, ensure your chosen item includes personalisation wherever possible. Finally, make it a sentimental purchase ahead of the occasion.
We make many of the items of diamond anniversary jewellery several weeks ahead of the event. For example, bespoke rings and pendants can take 6-7 weeks to create. Our process involves discussion and plenty of guidance. Also, we design items with finishing touches, such as custom laser engraving.
The Waverly Anniversary Diamond Bubble Ring
The Waverly ring takes inspiration from Anniversary rings, styled with diamonds in a bubble ring design. Interestingly, this design is most popular in yellow gold. Also, we craft each ring individually to order.

Fingerprint Eternity Rings
We apply fingerprints to many items of jewellery. Anniversary rings or half Eternity rings make a popular choice for all wedding anniversaries. For this reason, we decided to combine our fingerprint engraving service with eternity rings.

Two children’s fingerprints feature on the inner surface of the ring.
A Classic Diamond Solitaire Necklace
What better way to mark a diamond wedding anniversary than with a classic diamond solitaire pendant. We carry many designs in our showroom. Also, we provide a complete bespoke design service. For example, here we see a truly iconic solitaire pendant design, set with a half-carat diamond.
Diamond Anniversary Earrings
Diamond earrings make a prevalent choice for a diamond wedding anniversary gift. Furthermore, they come in many different styles. From single stone (solitaire) designs to elaborate fancy cluster styles. We work with a variety of different diamond types. For example, natural, lab-grown and even Moissanite. For this reason, even our largest diamonds accommodate several budgets.

Personalised Jewellery with Great Grandchildren and Family
Many of our bespoke jewellery designs feature custom engraving—specifically, a meaningful engraving with an immense amount of sentiment—for example, the footprints of a great-grandchild. Or, handprints instead.
We put very few limits on our engraving service. Add any word, text, character, fingerprint or even a heartbeat on any item. Most importantly, our expert team make the process effortless with all the help you might need.

Replacement Wedding Rings for Men
Bespoke men’s diamond wedding ring
Sadly, many men lose their wedding rings through the course of their lifetime. And, not all men replace their wedding ring. For this reason, replacement wedding rings make a wonderful diamond anniversary gift. For example, we can even add a small secret diamond to a wedding ring. Also, add any unique effect by way of engraving.
Engraved Signet Ring
Example of an engraved signet ring commissioned through our bespoke design service
Men’s signet rings make a highly personalised gift with the addition of an engraving. Again, we add many effects, including traditional lettering, fingerprints and messages. Most important, we add many sentimental engravings inside the signet ring. For example, here, we show a re-made signet ring with the addition of script-style lettering to the outer face.
