In Sweden, as in the USA, a half century of marriage is an achievement in the lifetime of any couple that is considered to be worthy of great praise and celebration. Families come together to share in this happy event and to present their loved ones with tokens of esteem, love and appreciation to show their relatives how much they are respected and admired.
Both in Sweden and in the USA, the traditional material linked with 50 years of marriage is gold – the most precious of metals representing the precious nature of a long-lasting union with a hard-wearing and resilient nature that reflects the enduring love of a couple who have weathered the storms of 50 years of trials and tribulations together.
History of Mining Gold in Sweden
Sweden has a long history as a producer of gold, and there are several mines set up all over the country to recover this precious commodity. Gold panning is also a popular pastime in Sweden, with many areas being frequented by prospectors who love to spend their spare time searching for gold nuggets. The Eman River is known as the first place where gold was found and nuggets are still found here today.
