55th anniversary emerald themeModern Gift Theme: Emerald

The Emerald holds two points of significance:

First, it is a symbol of genuine love, and in legend it was said that an emerald would change color if a loved one should be unfaithful. Within marriage, giving an emerald-themed gift is a sign of loyalty, devotion, adoration and friendship.

Second, thanks to its beautiful green color, an emerald is linked with rebirth and springtime. It is thought to make the wearer more creative and to open doors for new possibilities.

Flower: Calla Lily

** Alternatively a Green Rose is suitable in association with the emerald theme as well as the color green that represents the 55th anniversary

Calla lilies are a symbol of great beauty. In Christian culture, the calla lily is linked with purity, chastity, holiness and faith, but to the Romans, it was a symbol of lust due to its phallic stalk. Combining these concepts is representative of fidelity in marriage, together with desire and romantic love.
