Nothing shows off your love better than a piece of elegantly crafted jewellery. That’s why an estimated 21% of people buy jewellery for Valentine’s Day. However, buying the perfect Valentine’s Day jewellery gift may seem to be stressful. Don’t worry, you are in good company. Check out the best jewellery ideas and tips for making this meaningful day perfect for your loved one.
Things to Consider When Choosing Valentine’s Day Gifts
Of course, you can never put a price tag on love, but the budget is a valid factor when choosing a gift. It’s not necessary to buy the most expensive piece of jewellery in the store to make your loved one swoon. Just set a reasonable budget before starting the shopping.
There is no point in buying a piece of jewellery for your loved one if she will never wear it. For example, if she never wears earrings, just consider another type of jewellery. Keep her style and personality in mind when choosing a gift. Another style consideration is the preferred metal type and colour of gemstones.
Jewellery Gift Ideas
Keep in mind that best Valentine’s Day gifts are those that are carefully selected. This means that you shouldn’t take the first heart-shaped necklace you spot. Instead, put some thought into the meanings the jewellery piece will send to your loved one.
Close to Your Heart
Since the heart is a very clear symbol of love, these designs tend to be the most obvious choice. Choose a piece of jewellery that matches her style and personality. If she likes classy designs, go with a heart-shaped diamond necklace, ring or earrings. In case she prefers some bold pieces, you can add colour to the gift with heart-shaped coloured diamonds or other gemstones.
Colours of Love
For most people love is associated with red colour. Rubies and garnets most likely come to mind when thinking of red gemstones. These are both perfect options if your loved one likes red colour. The other colour associated with love is pink. Rose quartz, rose amethyst, pink sapphires and other pink gemstones are perfect for a woman who wants to highlight her femininity. All these gemstones look perfect in earrings, bracelets and rings.
Wrapped in Love
Instead of earrings, ring and necklaces, you may consider an elegant bracelet. These come in a variety of styles and colours, with options such as diamond tennis bracelets or casual styles she can wear daily.
Deeper Meaning, Deeper Love
You don’t have to get your loved one Valentine’s themed jewellery piece to tell her just how much she means to you. Diamonds and other gemstones in classic shapes such as round, oval, emerald and others, can hold a deeper meaning for your love story.
