The ninth year of marriage represents grace, wisdom, and the completion of a cycle. Without a doubt, you have made many memories made over the past nine years! Lapis lazuli is the traditional gemstone to recognize the ninth year of marriage. Known as the Wisdom Stone, it represents intellect and truth. Lapis lazuli has a vivid blue color which sometimes has specks of pyrite throughout, looking almost like a starry sky with metallic spots shining through.
This gemstone rock has been prized throughout time for its bright royal blue color and golden spots. It has been mined in the Badakhshan area of Afghanistan from ancient days and is still being mined today in these mines. Quite amazing! Lapis is also sourced from Chile, Canada, the US, Pakistan, and Russia... to name a few places. However, the most prized color of lapis lazuli comes from the mountains of Afghanistan.
With its calming and positive energy, gifting lapis lazuli for the ninth year anniversary is the perfect tradition. Some of our favorite designers that create jewelry with lapis lazuli are Rachel Atherley, Steven Battelle, Pascal LaCroix, Thorsten, and Stephen Estelle.
At Alara Jewelry, we offer the option for custom design: necklaces, pendants, bracelets, rings, and earrings that can be created for something extra special for your significant other.
