China is the traditional gift and one that is believed to show how fragile your relationship can be if it is not looked after. It is a reminder to think about the care and attention you would wrap around a fragile china object and to ensure you keep doing that with your marriage too.
Platinum is from the modern list and is a beautiful rare metal, a reminder to cherish the relationship you have together and the beauty of it.
Emeralds for your 20th from the gemstone list and they are the sacred stone of the goddess Venus that are said to preserve love. Perfect for every anniversary!
The traditional symbol for your 20th is china, from bone china to a trip of a lifetime to walk The Great Wall we have lots of ideas for you.
Taken in the purist form china is plates and cups or ornaments, and
the good thing is that there is a huge amount of choice to fit all
budgets. You can find souvenir plates to remember dates and places or
just pretty ones that you like the look of.
Designer plates can be unusual and definately special, all sorts of
designers are linking up with the big china manufacturers, Jasper Conran
and Vera Wang with Wedgewood or Terence Conran, Julien Macdonald,
Zandra Rhodes for Royal Doulton, definately worth having a look at. They also have gift vouchers as well, just incase any of your friends and family ask!
Here are some fun ways to include china in your celebrations;

course not all china has to be designer china! You could even think
about creating your very own work of art for your loved one.
You could have a platinum themed party but that might be a bit
more difficult to pull off without it looking like a silver anniversary
One symbol we haven't talked much about here for your 20th are emeralds which although is often thought of as the gift
