My friend Jess (the one that does my illustration for Icon Africa) wanted to get her parents a 40th wedding anniversary pressie. Forty years is a Ruby. The result was a beautifully simple salt spoon with a ruby set at the end. The back has her parents names and the date stamped on the back. (Sorry still trying to master my camera, so you don't get the true colour of the stone which is actually a pinky red).
