It’s the most romantic day of the year, make it unforgettable with a gift that she will love.
THE approach of Valentine’s Day can be nerve-racking for the jewellery-gifting novice. If you think it’s time you bestow a special Valentine’s Day jewellery gift upon your sweetheart, it probably is.
Giving that first special piece of jewellery can be exciting, but it can also be a landmine of potential mistakes. Take rings, for instance. If you’re not ready to get engaged, then presenting her with a ring box on the most romantic day of the year could be problematic.
You may want to steer clear of rings unless you are ready to get engaged; but if it feels right for you as a couple, then Valentine’s Day is a great day to do it.
Necklaces are a great choice. If you feel committed to her but aren’t quite ready to get engaged, consider a piece of jewellery that says just that.
Other ways to show her you plan to be around for a while include giving a charm bracelet you plan on augmenting year after year.
Necklaces are nice
Married for a while and getting the feeling she’s long overdue for a really special Valentine’s Day gift? Go all out with a classic strand of cultured pearls. There are many different styles and lengths available, and really, if she doesn’t yet have some pearls in her jewellery box, it’s high time she (or you!) made the addition. Pearls also make a lovely heirloom that can be passed down from generation to generation.
Necklaces are also a great gift for a girl you haven’t been seeing for very long – it feels less “important” than a ring, and beautiful necklaces come in a large range of prices and styles – it will be easy to find something she’ll love.
For a truly memorable Valentine’s Day gift, consider a diamond solitaire necklace. Available in an endless array of carat weights and styles, the traditionalist in her will love it and she’ll be able to wear it with any outfit.
Charmed, I’m sure
A charm bracelet or charm necklace is a wonderful gift that you can add to year after year; a perfect way to express your commitment if you aren’t quite ready to get engaged yet.
A traditional charm bracelet is one way to go, in gold or sterling silver. You can start by giving her the link bracelet with a single charm added. Since it’s Valentine’s Day, a simple heart charm engraved with “I Love You,” the date or a saying or phrase that’s special to you both is a wonderful way to get her charm collecting started.
