Traditional Pearl Anniversary Gifts for the 30th Year of Marriage
People have celebrated wedding anniversaries with the giving of gifts on that special day since the Middle Ages. Traditional anniversary gifts have been traced back to the Victorian era, with today’s traditional gift list being largely based on Emily Post’s list that was published in 1922.
The traditional 30th wedding anniversary gift is the pearl. While handing over a precious pearl is nice, we have found a few pearl-inspired gifts that you may like instead (with more than just pearl jewelry) to celebrate this major milestone that the married couple has reached.
There is nothing more classic than white pearls, and a necklace is a traditional present that is never out of style. This gorgeous necklace features a sterling silver infinity design with a freshwater pearl at the center. Yes, that is a REAL pearl.

Modern Diamond 30th Anniversary Gifts
Over the years, the traditional anniversary gift lists have evolved to include more modern gift ideas. The modern 30th anniversary gift is the diamond (not to be confused with the traditional 60th diamond anniversary).
With 60 years of marriage being fairly difficult for most couples to achieve (especially with today’s singles waiting until they are 30 or 40 years old to marry), the modern diamond anniversary gift is a fantastic symbol for 21st Century couples to celebrate a rock-solid marriage.
Here are our top picks for diamond anniversary gifts, with a few creative gift ideas that are “diamond-inspired” to fit your budget.
