60th Wedding Anniversary
Perhaps the most spectacular of all anniversaries, if only for its relative rarity. The sixtieth wedding anniversary is known as the diamond anniversary because of the gift of a diamond between lovers. There is also a second, metaphorical reason behind it. Diamonds are forged after years of pressure and toil, deep within the earth’s crust.
After sixty years together, a couple has been through it all – they have spent over half of a human lifetime together. It means they are blessed in multiple ways: not only at having found true love in one another, but in living beyond the expected time. The husband traditionally provides the gift of a diamond ring, necklace, earrings, or similar item to the wife. Other gifts that are acceptable include fine wines, photo albums, silver plated photo albums, and more.
Knowing the four major anniversaries can bring a bit of romance and wonder to an aspect of life which carries an all too negative connotation these days. Let it be known that there are special anniversaries for a reason: to celebrate what it really means to love.
60th wedding anniversary wishes
So many memories we’ve shared
From daily pleasures to yearly milestones
There’s nothing that I can compare
Every memory we’ve had has been such a pleasure
I love you my dear, thank you for sixty years together
Is this for real, or is it a myth?
No, indeed, it is very real,
As real as it will ever get.
Today I renew my vow to you,
For, lo, these many years your love has proven true.
Sixty years of love and happiness.
60th wedding anniversary poems
Our sixty years of love is an eternal treasure
Priceless, beautiful, amazing to behold,
A unique marriage from a very special mold.
Thank you for being my partner each day
Walking beside me each step of the way.
Bringing riches without measure to each special day.
For sixty years we've overcome strife
And enjoyed our love's sunshine's unique bright ray.
