Origins of the Diamond Commemoration
Originally 60 years of marriage did not have the Diamond associated with the celebration. In Victorian times it was decided to celebrate the English Queen Victoria’s 60 years as monarch and it was designated the Diamond Jubilee. This stuck and within the English-speaking world spread, thus the sixtieth wedding anniversary became the Diamond Wedding Jubilee.
Lots of Folklore surround the Diamond gemstone. It is said that it can bind a relationship, bringing love and clarity into a partnership.
Furthermore, it is said to enhance the love of a husband for his wife and is seen as a sign of commitment and fidelity which after 60 years I would have thought would be evident anyway!
