Here's everything you need to know about selecting an anniversary ring.
As a local jeweler in Lutz and Dade City, Florida, we love to help our customers celebrate their wedding anniversaries. We like to say that EVERY anniversary is a big anniversary because whether you have been married 1 year, 5 years or 50 years; each year of marriage brings new memories. Anniversary rings are a great way to represent a wedding anniversary because they come in so many varieties. These rings commemorate a significant milestone in a relationship and they can be worn together with an engagementring or independently. They can even be stacked with other anniversary rings or fashion rings as well.
Here at Kiefer Jewelers, we carry a wide variety of different anniversary rings. Anniversary rings typically feature gemstones or diamonds, and many couples choose to have their anniversary bands engraved with a special message. We can even custom make an anniversary ring featuring the same number of diamonds or gemstones as the special anniversary that you are celebrating.
We will work with you to curate the best ring possible for you and your significant other!
While there is no hard and fast rule for how to wear your anniversary ring, there are a few guidelines that can help you choose the best option to suit your style.
Unlike wedding rings, anniversary rings can be worn on any finger, but we find that most people wear their anniverary ring on their ring finger.
If this is the case, take metal type, style, and gemstones into consideration when picking out your anniversary ring if it is going to be worn with your wedding rings to better match the styles. Feel free to stop into either of our locations to try on countless styles of anniversary rings with your engagement ring to find the perfect fit. And if you don't see exactly what you are looking for in our showcase, we can design a one-of-a-kind custom anniversary ring made just for you and your engagement ring.
If you and your partner are shopping together, be sure to discuss all of the options before purchasing. We offer interest-free payment plans on all purchases to help break-up the cost of this special purchase as well.

Anniversary rings are a great way to express your love to your significant other. It is a tradition for the first five years to have a metal/stone “represent” your love for one another.
One Year Anniversary - Gold. Kicking off the first anniversary, we have Gold! The first anniversary is the sweetest - giving your partner the gift of a stackable gold band is a great kick-off gift to start the rest of your lives.
Second Anniversary - Red Garnet. Although garnet comes in many colors - including green, yellow, and pink - the color most associated with garnet is red. It is a relatively hard stone that can be used in any jewelry piece or design and truly pops when it is paired with white gold or platinum! A beautiful sentiment to give to your partner.
Third Anniversary - Pearls. Naturally beautiful, pearls are a traditional classic gift to your partner through earrings, rings, and pearl necklaces. Pearls can be natural or cultured - with natural pearls being slightly more expensive than their counterparts. Pearls are slightly more fragile than other materials, so take precaution as to where you are wearing these precious stones.
Fourth Anniversary - Blue Topaz. Like Garnet, Topaz can be found in a variety of colors, but blue topaz was originally the most rare of all of the colors. There are many different shades of blue topaz that can be paired with most metals to look radiant. Topaz is a harder stone - being a bit more durable than other stones.
Fifth Anniversary - Sapphire. Like other stones, sapphire can be found in many different colors, although the classic choice is blue. Other colors include white, shades of pink, and violet. This is the perfect “right hand ring” gift, as it has a very durable stone.
Celebrating your anniversary with your partner is one of the joys of being married - being able to give your partner a gift that they will cherish forever is second to none. Giving a ring represents the sentiment of love - neverending, cyclical, and encompassing.
