Guide To Buying Jewellery As A Valentine’s Day Gift

Nothing says “You’re Special” better than a piece of jewellery, which is why these trinkets are popular choices for Valentine’s Day gifts. Aside from the usual flower bouquets and boxes of chocolates, men make sure to look towards the jewellery section. The most romantic day of the year is almost upon us so make sure your partners feel loved and appreciated.

When buying jewellery gifts, it doesn’t need to be expensive or huge, but it needs to be well thought of. Get something that conveys the message that the giver had the receiver in mind when they bought the item, and that it was not a rushed decision or one bought at the last minute because they forgot to buy presents.

Here are some suggestions for buying jewellery as Valentine’s Day gifts:

Heart Shaped Jewellery

Around the globe, one of the most sold shapes for jewellery is the heart shape. And not surprising too as women are endeared to this shape, which can be worn on a daily basis. The jewellery industry offers a wide variety of heart-shaped pendants and earrings, necklaces and bracelets with heart-shaped charms, and rings with heart-shaped stones to choose from. You just can’t go wrong because let’s be honest, we all associate hearts and love with one another.

Customized Or Personalised Jewellery

Who doesn’t love customized gift items? When gifts are personalised, it gives the impression that the giver took time to think about the gift and put in more effort, which in turn creates a greater impact on the receiver.

Truly, nothing makes a gift more sentimental than the thought that the item is specially made for you and nothing gets more personal than having your name on the jewellery piece. Customized or personalised jewellery include trinkets engraved with the couple’s initials, names, or romantic messages. An engraved pendant bearing the giver’s name is considered very romantic because the giver’s name will always stay close to the wearer’s heart. You can also keep it simple with an initial pendant, which would generally have a single letter and an uncomplicated design around it.

If your partner is fond of horoscopes, then a zodiac pendant may be an interesting option.

How About Going All Out And Trying Personalised Heart-shaped Jewellery

This is a no-brainer. Since heart-shaped jewellery makes women swoon and personalised jewellery is considered the most romantic way of expressing love and affection, gifting your partners with personalised heart-shaped jewellery will definitely be a sensation. For example, you can purchase a heart-shaped locket pendant that has your significant person’s initials engraved on it and probably your picture inside it.

Matching Jewellery

Also a popular trend among young couples nowadays is going matchy-matchy, from outfits to jewellery pieces. For those seeking a more serious upgrade in their relationships, engagement and wedding rings are the jewelleries that you need to look into, and Certified Diamond Network has diamond wedding rings Sydney lovers want to get on Valentines. You can check out their website and take your pick of the various options that will greet you upon your visit.

If you want to join the match-matchy trend this Valentine’s Day but are not yet ready for marriage, you can get a couple’s heart pendant that can be split in two, such that each partner wears half of the pendant. You can also get couple’s heart-shaped pendants that bear your initials or names. 

Matching bands or rings are also Valentine’s Day gifting favourites. Unsurprisingly too, since there’s no better excuse to get a couple band than the celebration of Valentine’s Day. Couple bands refer to a set of two matching rings, with designs and patterns that are in sync with each other. When these rings are together, they appear to have a single design, which can serve as an inspirational reminder for couples to be loyal to their partners. 

Understandably, we still have a few weeks to go until the big day arrives. But isn’t it always best to prep and plan. That way you can ensure that you find the best gift just in time for your other half to enjoy this Valentines.

    I love these options for jewelry for Valentine’s day! You can never go wrong with heart-shaped jewelry. I am always a sucker for something personalized, especially when it has horoscopes in it. Matching ones are cute too! It gives an additional value, even more reason to wear it more often! Thanks for sharing!

    These are such lovely ideas! I have loved gifts from my husband over the years that have been personalized; he paid attention when I loved the design of arrows, and I’ve gotten a few rings and necklaces that have meant so much to me. At our wedding, we chose a match arrow tie clip and an arrow cuff for me, and it was a sweet memento. Thank you for sharing!
