For spouses

Lab-created emerald jewelry often has the sparkle of the real thing.

If green is a favorite color, clothing in that hue may be ideal.


Visit the “Emerald Necklace,” a series of linked parks in Boston, or travel to Ireland, “The Emerald Isle.”

For another couple

Make an “emerald” gift basket filled with gifts in shades of green, such as note cards, candles, green tea, and snacks and treats in green packaging. Add a card to wish them: Happy Emerald Anniversary!
