Maybe this isn't as prevelant in the USA as it is in the UK if people aren't aware of it? It's a big thing over here, in fact my grandparents just celebrated their Diamond anniversary (60th) this month. The smaller anniversaries aren't so well known but I've always known the big ones referred to as Silver, Gold, Ruby, Diamond etc. anniversaries, and everyone knew what I meant when I said I was going to a Diamond anniversary party.

I went with Plastic and Meat as well. Kinda bummed that Silk is included as Linen/Silk and then once more on its own. Didn't even think of repeating it!

Now.. rope anniversary is something that sounds interesting...

I enjoyed this quiz, but there is a modernized list, too, which includes things such as clocks, furs, appliances, jewelry, etc. Also, since ivory is no longer ethical to buy, year 14 is often seen as "animals". So KellyGeoGirl, can you wait 14 years for your puppy?
+1

As if the pet industry were ethical. And furs? Holy Hypocrites, Batman. There is plenty of antique ivory out there. And there is hippo and walrus ivory as well. Those animals aren't threatened.

I was thinking of elephant ivory, but I wouldn't know the difference among all the types so I'll stick with animals on anniversary 14. I'm a farm girl, so for me a nice gift would have been a young heifer or gilt.

Apples and oranges. The pet industry may have its shortcomings, but it's miles away from the savagery and cruelty of the ivory traders. And by the way, sadly both hippos and walruses are endangered species too. Giving ivory as a present is not a sign of love. Is a sign of idiocy.

Who says you have to buy from the "pet industry"? Plenty of shelter animals who need adopting.

I'd be happy with 600-count Egyptian cotton sheets, or movie tickets for paper. Those sound pretty modern to me.

Funnily enough, paper was scarce and expensive in the Middle Ages.

I never would have guessed Oak, especially after already typing Wood. I'm surprised there's no Platinum Anniversary. I would have thought it would be up there in one of the later anniversaries, as it's extremely valuable. It's about 10x less common than gold. Despite that, it's roughly the same price, about $1220 US/oz.

There was 245 tonnes of platinum produced in 2010 (compared to 2700 tonnes of gold), and of that 31% was used to make jewelry. Considering the prices, that would make a much rarer (and to be honest, probably a little more special than gold) anniversary gift.

The longest known marriage was supposedly 90 years and 9 months until the husband died at the age of 111 this September. That would be granite. And where I live marble.

I'm saddened by the inclusion of ivory on the list. Who can be so deranged as to give an ivory item as a present? Completely sick.
+1

Aug 4, 2017
Firstly, this list was clearly created some time ago - according to wiki, in Medieval Germany. At that time, one might postulate that the awareness and animal rights activism wasn't a 'thing'. Secondly, shame on you for being a keyboard warrior on Ivory, but being totally fine with Leather, Silk, Pearl and Coral. 'Completely sick'.

I once got a mammoth ivory wine key for a friend. It was beautiful, and I assume the mammoth was already dead before they took the ivory from it. Unfortunately it was stolen in the mail.
