Traditions Get Started?

While nobody knows for sure how or when traditional anniversary gifts first started, most people attribute the tradition to the Medieval times when wives were given a silver and gold wreath to celebrate their 25th and 50th wedding anniversaries. Other traditions came later. Many experts believe that the tradition of giving diamonds as gifts for the 60th anniversary can be attributed to Queen Victoria, who celebrated her “Diamond Jubilee” at her 60th anniversary on the British throne.
