Make This a Memorable Anniversary: Buying the 5 Year Wedding Anniversary Gifts Surprise

By Helen Zbornik

Anniversary bands symbolise the continuing love of a married couple. A new tradition that is growing in popularity, these rings are a way for a couple to show that their love endures. The perfect circle of the anniversary ring represents eternity, thus anniversary bands are often also known as eternity rings.

On one hand, it's hard to blame these people who think solitaire diamond engagement rings are the ultimate rings. They are beautiful, classy, glittery, expensive, posh, etc. There are infinite things you can say about diamond solitaire engagement rings. But, unfortunately, these rings' massive popularity has caused them to be rather unoriginal. Some women don't look for the glitz and glamor of diamond engagement rings but, rather, they look for more unique engagement rings. When you look at engaged women around the western world, it's easy to understand why a newly engaged would choose a more unique engagement ring. They have simply become too common!

Unique, non-diamond engagement rings are very easy to find. One alternative is the gemstone engagement ring. Because there are so many diverse kinds of gemstones, you can choose whatever stone you would be fond of. Some of the most well-liked stones are emeralds, sapphires and rubies. In addition, this kind of engagement ring can be more personal as you can select a stone that has special meaning to you or partner, such as a birthstone or the stone of the month you intend to marry in or a stone based upon its meaning, such as rubies because they are the symbol of love.

Non diamond engagement rings are often classy and feminine, like pink pearl engagement rings. Engagement rings are a matter of taste, but beyond the shadow of a doubt your partner will absolutely adore any pearl engagement ring. Pearls are very special jewels, since they form inside a living creature, either an oyster or mollusk. When these try to protect themselves, in the process they create beautiful pearls. Another reason why pearl engagement ring may be the perfect solution is that the bride's bridal jewelry is likely to be pearl jewelry. This kind of jewelry has become perhaps the most popular kind of bridal jewelry. Pearls are beautiful yet classy, elegant yet understated. Why get a gaudy flashy diamond engagement ring when you can go for something so much more unique?

If you haven't told your partner's mother that you're going to pop the question, you may want to consider doing so. I understand if you want this to be a surprise, but telling the girl's mom or sister may have a few advantages. For one, they can give you great proposal ideas. Your partner may have discussed it with them and they happen to know how she would like to be proposed to. Another reason why it may be worth your while to tell the mother is that she may have a ring to give you. Oftentimes, women pass down engagement rings within the family, and these go on to be heirloom engagement rings, which often have much greater value than any pearl and diamond ring. You should also consider telling your own mother about your imminent plans, because all of the above may apply as well.
