Modern Theme for 18th Anniversary Gifts – Porcelain 

Finely crafted, elegant and fragile are words to describe porcelain. Such properties also signify the precious rarity of a union that has lasted 18 years. You’ve worked and crafted and created something beautiful. And yet all relationships need constant care not to slip through your fingers and break. So porcelain is the perfect gift for those who value detail and delicacy.

  • A dinner service of fine china for endless celebratory meals

  • China housewares or tableware

  • A porcelain figurine

  • Candlesticks

  • Porcelain vases, jugs , bowls etc.

  • Delftware – or a visit to the Royal Delft factory and museum in the Netherlands

Traditional Theme for 18th Anniversary Gifts – None

Gemstone for 18th Anniversary – Cat’s Eye (alternatives: Aquamarine, Opal)

‘Cat’s eye’ (in French "œil de chat") is the popular name for cymophane. This variety of stone exhibits pleasing chatoyancy, or optical reflectance, that clearly resembles the eye of a cat. When cut to produce a cabochon, the mineral forms a light-green specimen with a silky band of light extending across the surface of the stone.The internal structure of precious opal diffracts light, resulting in a gorgeous iridescence. Opals can be transparent, translucent or opaque, and the background colour can be white, black or nearly any part of the colour spectrum. In the Middle Ages, opal was thought to deliver great luck because it possessed all the virtues of each gemstone whose colour appeared in the spectrum of the opal. 

Jewellery ideas

Any jewellery featuring cat’s eye, aquamarine, or opal: bracelets, bangles, cuffs, necklaces, pendants, earrings, rings.
