What Is the Traditional 8th Anniversary Gift?

Bronze is the traditional eighth anniversary gift. Made from a fusion of copper and tin, bronze represents the loving union between you and your spouse.

Pottery is considered an alternative traditional gift for the eighth year of marriage but it is also the traditional gift for the ninth anniversary. We recommend reserving this gift theme for your next anniversary.

What Is the 8th Anniversary Gemstone?

Tourmaline is the gemstone for the eighth anniversary. It is a semi-precious stone that naturally occurs in many colors, ranging from black to green to pink. Pink tourmaline is believed to relate to matters of the spiritual heart and encourages compassion, gentleness, and love. While green tourmaline relates to the physical heart and promotes courage, strength, stamina, and vitality.

While jewelry is always an excellent anniversary gift, you can also surprise and delight your spouse with a gift of tourmaline jewelry given on any special occasion during your eighth year of marriage.

What Is the 8th Anniversary Flower?

Lilac, the eighth anniversary flower, has historically had a strong association with love and romance. Available in multiples shades of blue, purple, and pink, each with a different meaning, magenta lilacs are the best choice to include in an anniversary bouquet because they symbolize love and passion. If lilacs are unavailable or out of season, the classic anniversary bouquet of red roses will always be appreciated.
