What a marital journey sixty years of marriage must be, that’s six whole decades married to the person you fell head over heels in love with. Such an accomplishment, and one that certainly deserves a magical celebration with your nearest and dearest.

What’s Traditionally Given for a 60th Wedding Anniversary?

Both the traditional and modern gift given for a 60th Wedding Anniversary here in the UK is Diamond.

Originally however, diamond was originally associated with a 75th Wedding Anniversary. But gained in popularity for a 60th wedding celebration after Queen Victoria celebrated her Diamond Jubilee, as they say the rest was history.

Would you like your anniversary to be congratulated by The Queen?

Don’t forget that a message of congratulations can also be sent on behalf of The Queen for couples celebrating a diamond wedding anniversary. This is a tradition that began with King George V. since 1917.

To receive one of these cards, a relative will need to submit an application form prior to the special day. Here’s the link to get you started and find out whose eligible:

To capture the essence of a diamond which is believed to symbolise the constant flame of love and enduring strength of a marriage. I have used diamond white as the primary colour with sparkling glitter and flawless clear crystals
