How To Select Valentine's Day Jewelry
With such a wide variety of beautiful jewelry pieces organized in many different collections, it can seem overwhelming when deciding how to select a particular gift. From precious gemstones like Diamonds and Rubies to classic finishes in Gold and Silver; and options ranging from Heart Shaped Pendant Necklaces to Infinity Rings, where do you start first? Below we’ve outlined a few questions to ask yourself (about your partner) to help narrow down your selection.
- Is your partner warm or cool-toned? Believe it or not, our skin tones can determine which metal finish looks best on our skin. Warm tones tend to do better against gold, while cool tones match nicely with silver or white gold.
- Are they more traditional or outside-the-box? Jewelry options and settings come in a variety of collections. Match your partner’s aesthetic perfectly by captivating their personality.
- What month were they born in? Embrace their birthstone! Not only will it bring them luck, it will have a significant tie to their person (and make it personal).
- Do they have a particular style? Just like their aesthetic, do you find your partner wearing or embracing a particular style? Classic, vintage, or modern, take these findings and incorporate them into a piece of jewelry or accessory.
- Are they needing any practical resources that can be gifted through jewelry or accessories? Whether they're in the market for a watch, a new wallet/money clip, or tired of rolling up sleeves without cuff links, many amazing accessories or jewelry pieces can add practical use.
- Have they been wanting anything in particular? You may be surprised how clear the advice is, if you take the time to listen. Your partner may say one morning getting ready that they’d love a new pendant to wear to work, or need a new watch - pay attention to these subtle hints. Additionally, some individuals may have their own platforms (like Pinterest or reddit), where they express or post items of interest to them.

What is The Meaning of Valentine's Day?
In every corner of the globe, individuals come together to celebrate Valentine’s Day and label the special occasion as a day of love. While some may believe Valentine’s Day was started as a commercial holiday, this is not the case. Valentine’s Day can be dated back as early as the third century.
The martyred Saint Valentine was known for his acts of love and goodness. It’s not 100 percent clear which good deeds he took part in, but some are rumored to be orchestrating forbidden marriages (as many relationships were forced together in that time due to family obligations, not out of love).
Throughout the Middle Ages, the initial practice of Valentine’s Day started to occur. Those of wealthier status were exchanging tokens and gifts with loved ones. It evolved to the holiday it is today back in the mid-nineteenth century and has carried that tradition ever since. So it makes sense to find an item to exchange that fully expresses your feelings for your partner.
Does Jewelry Go On Sale After Valentine's Day?
Aside from what you know about candy and red roses going on sale the day after Valentine’s Day, jewelry does not follow the same principle. In fact, it usually is the opposite - so don’t celebrate this holiday late with your partner. Since many retailers are competing for business, they often offer great/seasonal collections at a great deal.
For example, we’re offering up to 60% off select For Now and Ever Collections leading up to the romantic holiday. Check out jewelry on sale here, and see if any of these particular pieces would make a great addition to your partner’s home collection.
Still can’t decide? Find your closest store and speak with one of our diamond consultants. They can help you pick out the perfect Valentine’s Day gift.
This year, pair that beautifully written Valentine’s Day card with a special velvet box. This will ensure that this Valentine’s Day is one both of you will never forget. Gifting a piece of jewelry can serve as a reminder each and every day of the love you share for one another - as the sentiment is built each time you put it on.
