Bronze Anniversary Gift Meaning
Bronze is a durable metal made of copper and tin. It's a popular material choice for anniversary gifts, since its construction gives a nod to two becoming one, which occurs in a marriage, of course. Read more about the symbolism of a bronze wedding anniversary gift below.
What does a bronze anniversary gift symbolize?
Bronze is a symbol of strength and the notion of two becoming one, which means a bronze anniversary gift can be a way to bring strength and harmony to a relationship. Whether you choose a sculpture, something for the home or even a piece of jewelry like a bracelet or a hairclip, a bronze anniversary gift is a great way to honor the strong bond shared between partners.
Which anniversary is associated with bronze gifts?
Bronze is actually the traditional anniversary gift for two different anniversaries: the eighth and the 19th. Bronze, along with pottery, is the traditional anniversary gift option for 8 years of marriage, but it's both the traditional and modern pick for the 19th anniversary.
