Nobody reading this page can ever be accused of treating their partner as, well, just part of the furniture. But after a good while together it may be time to update how you furnish the family abode. This year’s anniversary reflects the stability of a couple's home and the familiarity of their long relationship, so some nice new furniture could be a suitable way to mark the occasion. And is there a sexier man-made object than a curvy chaise longue?
This theme could sound dull but it’s absolutely vital to get the details of the home right! These are the surfaces and objects you sit on, sleep in, store precious items. Where you sink down with a Just Eat and Box Set for a lovely night in. So think comfort, glamour, elegance and class – it’s time to push the boat out and make the domestic environment bliss in an evening class or study upholstery. Or, of course, a love seat!
There’s actually no defined traditional theme for the 17th wedding anniversary. The traditional list of anniversary themes makes you wait until the 20th anniversary before next suggesting a gift. But, no worries, you’ve plenty of ideas to be working on from alternative themes on this page!
A glassy translucent stone, Carnelian is an orange-coloured variety of chalcedony, a mineral of the quartz family. Its colour varies from pinkish-orange to a deep rusty brown, though it is most known for brilliant red-orange crystals. Its name comes from a Latin word meaning ‘flesh’!
Carnelian is traditionally worn to enhance passion, love, and desire. An amethyst is a gorgeous violet variety of quartz. The name comes from Greek words meaning “not intoxicate” as it was believed that such stones protect the wearer from drunkenness. Surely worth a try? Alternatively, Lily Gardner offers amethyst jewellery that anyone would be happy to raise a toast to. Click on these images to go directly to our site to find each of these stones.
Any jewellery featuring carnelian, amethyst, pink tourmaline, or citrine: bracelets, bangles, cuffs, necklaces, pendants, earrings, rings.
