The season of love is upon us – and that means it’s time to start shopping for your Valentine! Whether you already have a necklace in mind – or if you need guidance in selecting the perfect gem, we’ve got a few of ideas to find something that your sweetheart will treasure.
Diamonds are a classic staple for this holiday. That being said, each person’s preference in diamonds could differ! Does your sweetie prefer rings over earrings? If so, do they prefer a certain cut? What about color? When it comes to selecting the right diamond, these are some of the many things to consider.
This list of questions may seem a bit overwhelming, so we recommend a couple of things. It is always a good idea to interview your significant other’s friends and family for their opinions on his or her personal style. You can also ask a jeweler, who with the right help, will make sure you find the perfect gift.
Taking the Pre-Loved Route
Saying “I love you” is especially sentimental when it is done with a vintage piece, or even with a family heirloom. If you have something that is already in your possession, keep in mind that you may need to have it sized correctly for the recipient. You should also have it polished to shine brightly – just like the person who will wear it.
If you are seeking an older item, note that many jewelers have a vintage selection. You can check their website, or call to inquire.
If your suitor is fond of the latest trends in jewelry, you might look to Fashion Week, or the latest awards shows for fashion inspiration. Some of the upcoming trends we are on the lookout for this year are bold earrings, statement necklaces and layering necklaces.
Since spring happens soon after Valentine’s Day, it’s a good idea to shop for spring and even summer colors that your significant other can embrace for the following seasons.
As you can tell, there are many ways to shop for your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day. Shopping guidelines differ by person, but in the end, we are sure you will find something they will love for years to come.
