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 think most Americans are vaguely aware of them but I'm guessing if you polled them on the street as to what a "diamond anniversary" was fewer than 1 or 2% would be able to tell you. On a quiz like this they might be able to guess random substances and come up with "diamond," though... which is what I did. Or if they saw Gone, Girl then they might know Paper, Linen and Wood.

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?

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.

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.

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'.
