For a meaningful Valentine’s Day gift, choose a piece of jewellery that matches your Valentine’s unique style. Whether you decide on a pendant, bracelet or set of earrings, you’re giving a gift that they’ll cherish forever. If you want to find the perfect gift for your honey this February 14th, we’ve got some top tips to help you find something that they are sure to love. That means understanding your partner’s tastes, shopping at a reputable location such as the Vintage Jeweller and learning what the wording means in terms of how gemstones are graded. Above all, it’s important to start researching with time to spare and to know exactly how much you want to spend. Here are our tips for buying the perfect jewellery for your Valentine:
Know your Valentine’s tastes
Take note of the type of jewellery that your special someone wears regularly or keeps in their jewellery box. If they like small earrings, don’t choose big hoops. If they are someone who likes to stay active, don’t buy rings with high settings. If you plan to buy diamonds, try to subtly find out if your partner would rather sacrifice size over quality or vice versa.
Do your research
Learn about the key terms such as what clarity means in terms of diamonds, or how gemstones are graded. Only buy jewellery from a reputable store such as the Vintage Jeweller, to ensure that you know exactly what you’re getting.
Unless you plan on proposing, don’t get a ring
Rings have serious connotations to them, and if you’re having a nice candlelit dinner and a jewellery box is presented, you may not want to give them the wrong impression too soon. Sending a mixed message could end up being more detrimental than thoughtful. Larger jewellery items usually come in a larger box than a ring box, so they will make your partner smile without giving them a heart attack by not getting the engagement ring they may have been hoping for on Valentine’s Day. But if you’re married or already engaged, then gifting a ring is fair game. Consider commemorating your love with a diamond or gemstone eternity ring.
Gifts for him
Cufflinks, money clips and tie clips make for beautiful, high-quality Valentine’s Day gifts for the special man in your life. He’ll be able to wear your gift on special occasions like your anniversary and New Year’s Eve.
Gifts for her
Diamonds are stunning, classic gifts that can be set in any precious metal. Design or choose a piece that fits his or her personality. Not only will they feel special on Valentine’s Day, but they’ll feel your love every time they wear it. Or if she’s interested in vibrant, eye-catching jewellery, consider coloured gemstones for your Valentine’s Day gift. Ranging from sapphire pendants to emerald earrings, gemstones offer personality and unique style.
