Traditional wedding anniversary gifts are chosen based on a certain material designated to each year of marriage. The first year is symbolized with paper, and with each year the symbol material becomes more precious to reflect the years that a couple have remained together. Fifth being wood, tenth being tin, fifteenth crystal and so on. At fifty years the precious material is gold, here at Clogau, we argue why wait fifty years to surprise your partner with a beautiful gold gift? Whatever year of marriage is approaching, gold rings are a breath taking gift to show your partner what your time together so far means to you.
For centuries the gold ring has been used as an expression of love, commitment and friendship for both men and women.

The tradition of giving a specific anniversary gift on specific years dates back to the middle ages. Hallmark research has shown that the custom of associating silver with 25 years of marriage and gold with the 50 years of marriage appear to have originated in the Germanic region of Middle Europe. Among the medieval Germans it was tradition for friends to present a wife with a wreath of silver when she had lived with her husband for twenty-five years. On the fiftieth anniversary of the wedding day wives were presented with a wreath of gold. Hence arose the expressions ‘silver wedding’ and ‘golden wedding.’
We believe that our selections of gold rings are a beautiful and timeless gift for any special occasion particularly for an occasion as special as a wedding anniversary… no matter how many years!
