The 55th anniversary is also known as the Emerald Anniversary. A rare and exotic gem, it is quite fitting that the emerald is both the traditional and modern symbol of the 55th anniversary, a rare and spectacular achievement. There is however a second gemstone associated with the 55th anniversary and that is the alexandrite. Named after the Russian Tsar Alexander ll, alexandrite is available in both green and red, if you can find them. They are even more rare than emeralds.
Couples celebrating their 55th anniversary should plan an emerald themed holiday. Seattle is known as the Emerald City, Ireland is known as the Emerald Isle, and closer to home there actually is an Emerald Isle in North Carolina. What is an appropriate 55th anniversary gift? One would assume that a couple who has been married for this long doesnâ€™t really need anything, but that doesnâ€™t mean that you canâ€™t do something very special. Why not throw them a 55th anniversary party? To add even more spice to the event, why not host the party on a boat? We offer a magnificent array of private charter yachts that are available from April 1st to December 31st for groups of up to 600 guests. Donâ€™t concern yourself with the details. Our Toronto dinner cruises provide worry-free entertaining. Professional event planners can take care of the entire event or provide assistance on an as needed basis.
