8 Year Anniversary Gift Ideas of Bronze
Traditional Gifts for 8th Wedding Years


Beautiful bronze is the traditional 8 year anniversary gift. Being a year after the traditional 7th wedding anniversary gift of copper, bronze emphasises the fact that the marriage has gone into a period of extreme strength and durability.

A seventh year of marriage is often a true test of the long term stability of a relationship. The dreaded 7 year itch can strike, and many marriages fail at that point. Scientists and mystics alike have wondred why this may be. Those who are superstitious believe that it could be something to do with the strange symbolism of the number seven. Scientists argue that it may be that some humans hark back to an older genetic imperative and that after around 7 years, any children may be reasonably able to fend for themselves, at which time ancient man would move on to another partner. Studies have also found a lesser-known but just as scary 4 year itch where relationships may similarly hit shaky ground. But if you've reached your 8th anniversary, you can happily say that you've passed the risks of the itchy times, and ahead of you is the steadfastness of a strong relationship which has withstood the test of time and will continue with its reliability to withstand whatever may try to breach it  Even in these modern days, it's a relief to know that most marriages still do last for life.  In the USA, 57% of marriages truly are "Till death us do part".  If you've reached your eighth wedding anniversary you're on a truly good heading to be part of that happy 57%.

Rugged yet attractive, the 8 year anniversary gift of bronze is perfect to illustrate this movement into the ongoing strong and dependable times of a long term marriage. It is actually only the second metal that you would have encountered so far in the traditional anniversary gift schedule, copper having been the first of the metals in the previous year.

The increased strength of another joyful year of marriage is empahasised in the fact that bronze, the traditional  8 year anniversary gift, is a stronger substance than the 7th year gift of copper.  It is also more durable, representing the ongoing continuity of a happy relationship, and harder than copper, indicating the unbreachable bond that time has forged.

Bronze is a metal which will elegantly age in parallel with a happily married couple.  This ageing process of bronze is a form of oxidization and is known as patina.  Over the years this will produce an attractive natural effect which is highly appreciated by bronze collectors.  Also known as verdigris, the green coloured patina of bronze is actually copper carbonate (as copper is part of bronze's composition), and is bronze's natural protection against further corrosion.  Often people are tempted to try to shine away the patina, and of course, this may be your own preference, but bronze collectors much prefer the natural look of a time-aged piece.  A nice genuine patina can help to identify a genuine aged piece from a newer bronze.  A simple light dusting off with a dry cotton cloth is the best way to keep your bronzes clean and retain their natural look.

With this characteristic effect of patina, your bronze anniversay gifts can effectively be thought of as organic and almost living sculptures.  And as we all age over time, it's nice to know that ageing is appreciated, not just in our own increased wisdom and knowledge, but also in the valued beauty of the attractive rustic patinas on our special bronzes.
