When searching for an
please remember that there
are no flowers or gemstones with
35th wedding anniversaries
- just coral (and jade).
Our green shades of Fossil Coral
are, like Celadon, the ancient
Chinese ceramic ware,
made to resemble jade.
It is very appropriate for
Coral Wedding Anniversary gifts to be made with both coral and jade.
Nowadays various Red Corals have become available to us and we have
introduced a range to include Bamboo and Sponge Coral.
To go with this we have an appropriate new color
fossil coral centerpieces.
Strong and fiery, "Coral Red" matches well
with Red Bamboo Coral and
Red Sponge Coral.
It's also popular in our
Tree Ornament Range.
Prior to the age of Queen Victoria, Coral was the gift of choice for 35th Wedding Anniversaries. At that point some retail organizations, with an eye on either boosting sales, or updating some ancient ideas, began to suggest Jade (a much more expensive material) as the appropriate gift to give.
Jade and Celadon
The Coral Studio has melded together these two 35th Anniversary ideas, Coral and Jade, into the subtle and muted color range we call “Celadon Green”. This color has been carefully designed and named in honor of the antique Chinese ceramic ware known as “Celadon”. With their love of beautiful Jade articles, the Chinese sought to represent Jade in pottery with this very special green color. True examples of Celadon fetch fabulous prices today.
Being made with Coral . . . and being available in green . . .
The Coral Studio, in either case, has the perfect 35 Anniversary gift for you to purchase. If possible, your first choice should be from our Celadon Green Gallery because this covers both the Coral and the Jade. However, if green is not acceptable for any reason, then any of our other colors will be an excellent choice as they are all made using Coral. (Fossil Coral Rock, to be precise, as using this does not harm the environment.)
Although many of our pieces are more particularly directed at tropical wildlife enthusiasts, we have found that our frogs, tortoise, boxes, clocks, and our "Caribbean Scene" wall plaque,
and now our new Pendants,
and Earrings all of which are viewable in our various galleries, and may be found listed individually at the left of this page, make excellent 35th Anniversary gifts of a more general nature. We have also found that many people like to customize their gifts and we are able to offer that service for several of our pieces. Please visit our Custom page.
If you have a 35th Wedding Anniversary coming up soon, or have friends or relatives with one, please contact us so that we may ship your choice directly to the recipients. Celadon is a designer color that goes well with all schemes and decors.
Here, for your interest, is the most complete list of Anniversary Gifts we have been able to compile.
The list of traditional wedding anniversary gifts was started in Europe around the end of the 17th and beginning of the 18th century.
The list grew over time until it covered individually all the years one to fifteen and then every five years up to the Seventy Fifth Year. This was the original Diamond Anniversary.
In 1897, when Queen Victoria celebrated her Diamond Jubilee on the sixtieth anniversary of her accession to the throne of England, a new trend began.
The idea arose that, as not many couples survive to celebrate 75 years of marriage, 60 years might be more a appropriate date.
And that is how it remains today.

IT'S UNIQUE !
When you own one of these pieces you will be displaying artwork that is both unique and ecologically friendly.
All The Coral Studio's "Virgin Island Fossil Coral" line are made using Fossil Coral Rock from on land in the British Virgin Islands.
Live coral lives underwater, and Fossil Coral can be found there too, but we use Fossil Coral exclusively gathered from on shore.
It's also absolutely unique because no one else in the world makes figurines this way.
