Going Platinum

Couples can accomplish plenty of milestones in 20 years of marriage: Building a life together, raising a family, going through the ups and downs of a shared partnership. Celebrate the occasion with a 20th anniversary gift that reinforces your commitment and love for each other.


The traditional gift for 20 years is china and porcelain, often reflected in a dinnerware set or a piece of pottery. But while china is delicate, the anniversary's more modern gift — platinum — symbolizes strength and endurance. As for the color and gemstone associated with 20 years of marriage, both are a sparkling emerald. 


However you choose to celebrate two decades of matrimony, here are the best traditional, modern, and themed 20th anniversary gifts.
