  • Pearl Necklace
  • Pearl Earrings
  • Fresh water pearls are a very pretty gemstone. A great gift would be a pair of pretty pearl earrings. Pearls really are timeless elegance - maybe a gift of a beautiful freshwater pearl necklace.

    Consider buying your fresh water pearls online. This pearl necklace would make a perfect first wedding anniversary gift. Remember to take note of the actual dimensions of any jewelry purchased online, as they can sometimes look bigger.

    Super jeweler is definitely the pick for beautiful pearl jewelry - click here to visit super jeweler.

    If pearls (as classic as they are!) are a bit old fashioned for you, try some stunning silver jewelry. I liked this pair of silver earrings with amethyst and diamonds. they are from JewelBasket who have a huge range of jewelry - and offer competitive pricing too (bonus!).

    Click to visit JewelBasket and check out their range of silver jewelry!

    1st Wedding Anniversary - How to Celebrate

    first anniversary gift

    The first wedding anniversary is traditionally celebrated by just the couple. No matter what your circumstances are, there is no reason to overlook this day. There are many ways you could celebrate, whether you will be staying home, having a bit of a getaway or having a picnic by the lake.

    What you do for your 1st wedding anniversary could start off traditions for your following wedding anniversaries. Make sure you do something special that you will both remember.

    For our first anniversary we stayed beside the lake in Paradise (well not quite Paradise, Kinloch not far away from Paradise!). We had a camp-fire down by the lake and had a great bottle of red wine that had been given to us for our wedding. I still think of it fondly as a special memory!
