What is the traditional 40th wedding anniversary gift in Europe?

Is there a difference between Europe and US traditions?

One website says Garnet or Ruby for 40th.

I found the same thing - most of them said ruby and one of them said garnet.

This (http://www.french-giftshop.com/en-us/wedding_anniversary_gift.html) site lists the traditional and modern gifts. It is a French store located in Switzerland and the list looks identical to the US lists. I guess they are probably the same in both Europe and the US.
