34th Anniversary Contemporary/Modern Gift – Opal

There are two kinds of opal – the common opal and the precious opal. Precious opals have iridescence, which means that different hues may be seen depending on the angle of light. The majority of precious opal gemstones are cut and polished into cabochons. Thin opals can be combined with other materials like ironstone, dark or black common opal, onyx, or obsidian to make beautiful stones. Milk opal, resin opal, and wood opal are examples of common opal. These aren’t typically carved into jewelry. Nonetheless, many people consider opal to be a beautiful gemstone to be admired.

34th Anniversary Gemstone – Amber

Amber is called a gem since it shines when polished, but it isn’t really a gemstone. It’s the hardened resin of extinct trees that have been fossilised over millennia. Amber is a wonderful natural purifier because of its capacity to absorb negative energy and vibrations from the body. It’s also effective for promoting soft-tissue regeneration and healing, as well as detoxification, heart problems, arthritis and headaches. Amber has been utilised as a charm for bravery and self-assurance in the past, and it was once thought to bring good fortune to soldiers on the battlefield. In some cultures, amber represents the renewal of marital vows.

How to Celebrate a 34th Anniversary

Perhaps you could create a photo album in book form with pictures of past years’ anniversary parties. A lot of online companies offer personalised gifts made from photographs. These may be transformed into a DVD, so plan your celebration around a candlelit dinner at home with some drinks, while taking a walk to the past.

You may use this as inspiration for something truly magnificent – perhaps even slightly unusual for this year’s wedding anniversary like renting out a karaoke bar.

34th Anniversary Celebration Ideas

Here are some different ways to celebrate your 34th wedding anniversary:

  1. Enjoy a getaway to one of the Baltic countries – chilling-out in the northernmost frontiers of Europe.
  2. If your budget allows it, plan an extended holiday to Australia, including a tour of one of its renowned outback opal mines.
  3. Sign on together for jewelry-making classes, and create your own set-opal gifts.
  4. Invite friends to a party at home or a more formal celebration in a local restaurant.
  5. Although it may not seem a particularly romantic idea, your partner will truly appreciate it if you take the effort to help with tasks that you never normally do around the house. Perhaps take over with cooking the dinner, helping out with the kids, or doing the laundry.
