How to Select the Perfect Valentine Gift for Everyone

February has always been a favorite for me. I’m sure that’s why I’m in the jewelry business; I’m one of those people who loves LOVE! So, it comes as no shock that I love Valentine’s Day. For the whole month I try to arrange extra thoughtful somethings for myself and others. You can usually find me dressed in my favorite pinks, reds, hearts and anything symbolic of the season. I even have a ritual to make homemade pasta this time of year because it is a true labor of love and made with heart. However, I know that not everyone feels this way and some definitely need advice when selecting the perfect Valentine gift. I get it. There can be a bit of pressure around the holiday too. Well, I’m here to help. Whether it’s a new or well-seasoned relationship, or a gift to a friend or family, I have advice to get you started in the right direction.

Show Them You Care – Small Tokens of Affection

First off, if it comes from the heart, it’s the best gift anyone could receive. Presents aren’t everything, but they do let someone know you are thinking of them. For a small token of affection without a big splurge, consider a sweet sentimental gift from our Sterling Silver Jewelry Collection or perhaps an Engravable Gift, such as a frame with your favorite photo together. Here are a few of my favorites.


Tried and True Classics

Browse our Valentine Gift Guide – a collection of tried and true Valentine inspirations. They were selected with all things February and love in mind. You will notice many amethyst items, the birthstone of February, as well as red and pink colored gemstones. We selected symbols of love including hearts, the infinity symbol, love knots and many more.

Dare to Be Different

You know best what your love really wants. There is no rule that you must stick with classics like rubies or amethysts for the holiday. Surprise them with that one of a kind piece they’ve always dreamed of. A great place to start is our Vintage Jewelry Collection. Get inspired by many of our Victorian pieces oozing with lacy floral details and delicate touches. Speaking of Victorians, did you know many of their jewelry had secret symbolism? I’m sure you and your SO share many secrets – surprise her with a gift with a meaning just the two of you share. It could be as simple as you love spending time together at the sea, so you purchase a pair of aquamarine dangle earrings.
