10th Anniversary Gifts:
Diamonds, Aluminum, Tin for tenth wedding anniversaries!
Our 10th anniversary gifts are shown below. What makes these special gifts for a tenth wedding anniversary? The Traditional Anniversary Gift List suggests tin or aluminum for a 10th anniversary. The Modern Anniversary Gift List suggests a different material for the tenth wedding anniversary... diamond! Diamonds speak for themselves, with all the symbolism easily appreciated.
Each of these original designs were created in-house, and are sold exclusively here at Architects Touch. And each gift meaningfully uses tin, aluminum, or diamonds to celebrate 10 years of marriage!
Metals are used to celebrate many anniversary years. Although aluminum is an abundant element, it was actually an extremely costly material before efficient methods of extracting it were developed. In the early 1850s, it was more expensive than gold!
But as technology improved, production costs went down. Though a metal, aluminum is extremely lightweight. It has been used in everything from brightly colored martini shakers to lightweight chairs to window frames.
Why both tin and aluminum? Most likely because both metals have a number of similar properties.. both are malleable metals, resistant to corrosion, and light grey in appearance. They are also (at least today) considered among the more basic metals, rather than the precious ones. As this is the first metal chosen to celebrate a major anniversary year, it seems reasonable that a more common metal was chosen.
As for suggestions for what to get in tin? We carry some meaningful jewelry packaged in a lovely tin box. We also carry a series of unique aluminum vases, specially created to fit together. They both catch the spirit of the anniversary, as well as the tradition material used to celebrate it.
