Copper is the 7th Wedding Anniversary Gift (9th Anniversary in the U.K.)
In marriage do thou be wise: prefer the person before money, virtue before beauty, the mind before the body; then thou hast a wife, a friend, a companion, a second self.

What could be better than remembering the day…And having the traditional Copper Wedding Anniversary Gift?
How about a plaque with a phrase from a favorite poem? Or a plaque memorializing that special day?
Copper is perhaps the most familiar of all the metals in common use. Known to some of the oldest civilizations on record, it has a history of use that dates back 10,000 years. Found on the periodic table close to silver and gold, it has many similar characteristics to these precious metals. Associated with Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, its rich, lustrous color has for centuries made copper one of the most prized of metals.
Lightly sanded or highly polished to reveal the warmth of its natural ruddy orange color, the metal can also be chemically treated to produce surface patinas in a variety of striking greens and blues. These unique colors are perhaps most familiar when seen on landmark buildings or other structures, such as the Statue of Liberty.
Let’s just remember the part about Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess of Love and forget the Periodic Tables. Just realize that this is a thoughtful and unique gift idea. It doesn’t cost too much so you will have plenty dough left over to go crazy at the jewelry store.
Copper is for the 7th Anniversary, but did you know that Iron is for the 6th, Bronze is for the 8th, Aluminum is for the 10th, and Steel is for the 11th? All real metal finishes are available from Atlas Signs and Plaques.
