There is a tradition to exchange silver rings and wear them along with wedding bands. It happens that the couple celebrates and officially - conducts another wedding ceremony in the place where she signed.
It is quite an impressive term, over the years - this is 50 years for a family. This wedding anniversary is celebrated only by those couples who withstood all the hardships of life and carried a bright feeling of love through half a century. On this day, it is supposed to give each other new gold rings, and to give the former unmarried grandchildren or children as a symbol of a long and strong family.
Guests of the anniversary as usual give gold jewelry or gold-plated interior items.
This is the 60th wedding anniversary. It means that the relationship of two people is already strong as a diamond (the cut version of the stone is called a diamond), and therefore their life together does not threaten. Ornaments with a symbolic stone are usually presented on this day, but since they are rather expensive, cubic zirconias or other semi-precious things are allowed.
