Wondering what to get your significant other for Valentine’s Day? Here are 10 jewelry gift ideas courtesy of Overstock.com.
1. Heart-Shaped Rings
While your partner may appreciate rings of all shapes and sizes, a heart-shaped ring is the ideal choice to celebrate the holiday of love. Sizing and style are both important, so determine her ring size and find a design that reflects her personal style. Choices abound — from simple sterling silver heart rings to elegant diamond and gemstone rings. Choose one you know she’ll love wearing for years to come.
2. Heart Necklaces
Similar to heart-shaped rings, heart necklaces styles vary by metal, stone, and setting, and prices range from affordable to high-end. Select from different lengths such as choker, mid-length princess, and extra-long opera. For a sentimental touch, choose a necklace accented with gemstones from the month you first met, got engaged or were married.
3. Dangle Earrings
A beautiful pair of dangle earrings can transition from day to night, making them an ideal gift that can be worn on numerous occasions. If your Valentine prefers subtle jewelry styles, find a pair that’s shorter in length and choose a solid metal such as sterling silver or gold. For those who like their jewelry to pop, choose designs that feature sparkle, length, and vibrant colors.
4. Diamond Tennis Bracelets
A diamond tennis bracelet is a simple, yet beautiful piece of jewelry that any woman would love to add to her jewelry collection. When choosing a diamond tennis bracelet, consider the clarity and uniformity of the diamonds as well as the color of the setting metal. Tennis bracelets can be found in settings that range from yellow gold to platinum to rose gold, and this determines how the bracelet’s diamonds appear. A yellow or rose gold setting complements diamonds with a slight yellow or beige tint.
5. Pearl Jewelry
For a classically feminine look, you can never go wrong with a strand of pearls worn as a necklace. Pearls are sometimes called “teardrops of the moon” and symbolize innocence and purity. Some claim that they can even produce a calming effect. Whether natural or cultured, pearls come in a variety of colors and shapes as unique as your significant other.
6. Luxury Watches
Gift your partner a watch that combines opulence and function. Luxury watches are made from precious metals and can be adorned with diamonds and other stones. Consider your loved one’s personality and lifestyle when choosing a watch. If your Valentine spends Saturdays by the pool, look for water-resistance. The type of watch crystal, construction, and movement are other components to consider when in the market for a sophisticated timepiece.
7. Engagement Rings
It’s no secret that Valentine’s Day is one of the most popular days to “pop the big question.” Selecting the perfect ring can be overwhelming, but doesn’t have to be if you’re armed with the right information. Look for an engagement ring in the stone, metal, and setting that suits her personality — like a nature-inspired or a vintage design. Go traditional with a round diamond ring or unique with a large marquise emerald ring. Remember that an engagement ring is a piece of jewelry that symbolizes your life together, so choose with your heart.
8. Birthstone Jewelry
Show your Valentine that you know and appreciate all the traits that make her who she is with a piece of birthstone jewelry. Your Valentine is likely to appreciate a beautiful set of diamond earrings, an amethyst necklace, or an emerald tennis bracelet to showcase her birth month. She’ll also be impressed by the effort you put into finding a unique piece of jewelry.
9. Cubic Zirconia
For budget-minded shoppers looking for high design without the high cost, cubic zirconia is a beautiful and smart option. This man-made stone shines with brilliance and features cuts that mimic a diamond. Cubic zirconia stones can be found in pendant necklaces, engagement rings, drop earrings, and tennis bracelets.
10. Unique and Handmade
If your Valentine prefers women’s jewelry that’s one-of-a-kind, try handmade jewelry. Handcrafted pieces can be simple or overstated. Turquoise earrings, coral bracelets, and hand-stamped titanium rings just begin to brush the surface of all the special handmade jewelry available.
