GEMSTONE: The theme of the 25th wedding anniversary is sterling silver. It is brilliant and radiant. Silver has long been known, since ancient times, to be a precious metal. It has been used to make jewelry, flatware and even used as currency. It is a very soft, highly conductive metal. The market for pure silver has been very unstable lately. In 1939 silver was worth 71 cents/troy ounce. Currently silver is worth about $12.40/troy ounce.
FLOWER:Iris is the flower associated with the 25th anniversary. A bouquet of 25 irises tied with a silver bow is a perfect, symbolic gift for the lucky couple. Another idea is a bouquet of irises in a sterling silver vase. Anyway you combine silver and irises shows that you have done your homework.
