With February upon us, lovebirds across the globe are preparing for the most romantic day of the year – Valentine’s Day! It’s the one day of the year where couples get the chance to declare their love for one another in a special way by exchanging romantic cards and thoughtful gifts.
Valentine’s Day is a celebration that began a long time ago in Rome in 496 A.D and the tradition shows no signs of ending anytime soon. British consumers actually spent £650 million on Valentine’s gifts in 2018*. Research found that jewellery is one of the most popular gift choices for Valentine’s Day, with the British public spending £112 million on jewellery gifts for Valentine’s Day in 2017**.
With so many different jewellery pieces and styles available today it can be hard for us to decide what our partner would love the most. To help the public out, F.Hinds have shared their top tips for choosing meaningful and romantic jewellery pieces for Valentine’s Day:
Rose gold is by far the most romantic metal choice for Valentine’s Day. With its warm rosy tones, rose gold jewellery has seen a huge increase in popularity over the past two years. We also see the love heartmore and more over Valentine’s Day and we all know why. The dainty love heart symbol represents the physical heart, which is known as the centre of emotion, affection and love.
Red is the colour of love, which is why red gemstones like garnet and ruby make a great gemstone choice for Valentine’s Day. Like rose gold, the warm red tones are very romantic. Gemstones are not just pretty to look at, they also have special meanings behind them. Garnets represent faith, eternity and trust. Rubies symbolise love, enthusiasm and strength.
Trilogy rings make beautiful promise or engagement rings and they’re perfect for a surprise proposal or a special celebration. They contain three stones, each one representing something special – the past, the present and the future of the couple and their relationship. Trilogy engagement rings have shown a huge increase in popularity since Prince Harry proposed to Meghan Markle with a breathtaking yellow gold diamond trilogy ring back in 2017. Trilogy rings are definitely worth looking at for those who are considering a special proposal.
Last, but certainly not least, there’s diamonds. We all know how unique each diamond is. The name ‘diamond’ is actually derived from the Greek word ‘adamas’ which means invincible or indestructible. According to Roman mythology Cupid’s arrows contained diamonds which only adds to their romantic appeal. Most people think diamonds are only for special occasions, but with so many diamond jewellery pieces available at affordable prices they really can be worn for all occasions!
