It’s now the end of January, and time to consider your gift for Valentines Day; be that for the special partner in your life or a friend you really care about. Whilst small gestures and traditional gifts like flowers and chocolates can be nice; the joy you can bring someone through a piece of jewellery that they can wear is unmatched.
When buying items of jewellery for someone, you have to take into account who you are buying for and make sure that what you purchase fits their taste. What metals do they like? What sort of designs do they like; minimalist or eye-catching?
Once you know what they like, you can tailor your purchase to those tastes and find a piece of jewellery that they will want to treasure every day.
However, picking a piece of jewellery can be a daunting task with Valentine’s day riding on it. To aid you in your quest to find a worthy present, we have created a short guide to some brilliant pieces of jewellery that should go down like a house on fire.
A simple gold chain
When buying a piece of jewellery, it’s hard to go wrong with a simple gold chain. A gold chain can stand alone with any outfit, be worn every day on a casual basis, and also be layered alongside bigger statement pieces. It’s the Swiss Army Knife of necklaces. We recommend this Rose Gold Diamond Rubover Necklace, which is the perfect balance of a delicate rose gold chain and stunning diamonds that adorn the necklace by the yard.
If the understated necklace isn’t enough for your partner’s taste, and you also want to make the rose gold necklace a little more personal; you could attach a special pendant to it. For example; this Trapiche Colombian Emerald Pendant is an intriguing piece of jewellery that emulates a beautiful leaf, and would be a wonderful addition to this piece.
Or if you prefer something that looks a little less perfect, then this Rough Emerald Pendant might be more for you.
A Gold ring
Any look can be improved with a set of rings, and statement rings with an eye-catching design being the most powerful of them all. This Rose Gold, Marquise Diamond Ring is at its essence a showy ring. The marquise cut has its roots in French tradition, where King Louis XV of France requested a ring to be designed that resembled the lips of his mistress. The erotic lips-shaped diamond has remained fashionable for many years and is once again back in vogue.
As we hopefully emerge from the worst of the Omicron wave, party season might be back on; and what better Valentine’s gift than a pair of statement earrings to flash on a night out or round at a friend’s intimate gathering.
A bright beacon
When looking for a pair of luxurious earrings, a pair of studs that draw the attention and emit a feeling of warmth on a fresh winter’s evening is what many people are clamouring for. These Cabochon Cut Emerald Studs are a perfect example of this, an inviting piece of jewellery with bewitching emeralds that you can’t take your eyes off.
An ice cold special
While gold might be the preferred choice for some, some people prefer cooler shades. To achieve a stunning red carpet worthy look, these White Gold and Yellow Diamond Earrings are a perfect blend of cool metal and contrasting brilliant canary diamonds at the centre.
