Find the perfect 50th Anniversary Gift

Making it to your half-century anniversary with your loved one is a rare and precious milestone, so it’s only fitting that it’s celebrated with the rare and precious metal of gold. A durable and beautiful metal, gold is the perfect symbol for the strength and longevity of your relationship, and can be gifted to your loved one or to a couple as they celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary.

  • What is the symbol for the 50th wedding anniversary?

    The symbol for the 50th anniversary is gold.

    At Michael Hill all of our gold jewellery is crafted from a minimum of 10ct gold, and our collection includes modern and traditional styles of gold rings, earrings, pendant necklaces, bracelets and more that are the perfect gift to celebrate a milestone anniversary.

  • What’s a good 50th wedding anniversary gift for him?

    A perfect anniversary gift for him is one that reflects his style, as well as the bond you share.

    If he often wears jewellery, a beautiful gold chain necklace or gold bracelet crafted from 10ct gold and above is the perfect gift. If his style is more pared back, consider a men’s watch in gold tone stainless steel engraved with a special message, or a men's gold ring that can be worn to complement his wedding band.

  • What’s a good 50th wedding anniversary gift for her?

    The perfect 50th wedding anniversary gift for her is a jewellery piece that embodies her personal style and symbolises the strength of your relationship.

    While yellow gold may be a more traditional choice for the 50th wedding anniversary, consider choosing white gold or rose gold jewellery if that is what your loved one usually wears. An anniversary ring will be sure to make her smile, while a solid gold bangle engraved with your initials and wedding date will be cherished forever. A pair of small gold hoop earrings can symbolise the eternal nature of your bond, as can an infinity necklace or bracelet. Think about the kinds of pieces she loves, and try to select a piece that complements her existing jewellery wardrobe.

  • How do I take care of my gold wedding anniversary jewellery?

    A high quality piece of gold jewellery will give you years of lustre, but it is important to take care of all your jewellery to keep it shining like new.

    To keep your anniversary jewellery shining, polish it regularly with a soft cloth such as a jewellery cleaning cloth. You can also regularly clean your gold jewellery using a solution of mild detergent and warm water, to remove the dirt and oils that will gather over time. Avoiding wearing your jewellery in the shower or pool and removing it each night will also keep it looking like new. For more information on gold jewellery and how to care for it, click here.
