What is the traditional 60-year anniversary gift?
It's no wonder that the 60th wedding anniversary is the diamond anniversary. Diamonds are known for their durability, clarity, and beauty—all traits of a happy 60-year marriage. The brilliant gemstone is not only the traditional gift to mark a 60-year anniversary, but it's also the modern gift theme and gemstone for it as well. The color to commemorate the diamond wedding anniversary is, fittingly, diamond white, and the flower is the elegant orchid. Of course, there's nothing to say you have to go with any set theme when it comes to a gift, and we've included plenty of alternative 60th anniversary gift ideas as well.
