Just because your Valentine’s Date was at home this year, or in front of your webcam, there is no reason that you couldn’t have blinged it out! We’re still feeling the love so we decided to share a few jewelry tips for the Month of Love.
Some people like to wear jewelry that is on-theme, but others just want to enjoy the glamour. We may have less reason to dress to the nines right now, but no law says you can’t enjoy dinner in your own dining room in full black tie. Cook at home, grab take out or visit a restaurant that is offering socially distant indoor dining (or outdoor, if weather appropriate). Enjoy a meal with your sweetie any way that feels like a celebration of your love.
We’ve put together some examples of on-theme looks for you to enjoy all year through. We would love to see the looks you chose for your own celebration.
RED FOR ROMANCE
Red jewelry can be worn year-round and fits the bill for “on-theme” for a few different holidays. For Christmas, Independence Day, and/or Valentine’s Day, red jewelry creates a festive look. Rubies, garnets, red zircon, red spinel, and many more offer lots of red options to create your holiday sparkle!
WHAT THE HEART WANTS
What comes to mind when you think of heart-shaped jewelry? It may evoke images of heart-shaped charms on charm bracelets of your youth. While hearts are not for everyone, they have come a long way in the jewelry world. They pop up on celebrities, and there has been a rise in talismanic jewelry. Hearts are a symbol of the love that many women want in their lives or the love that they cherish in their lives already. Hearts are undeniably linked with the Month of Love, so they will always be on theme.
THE KEY TO MY HEART
Keys as jewelry are said to symbolize the opening doors of opportunity. They, of course, are also a symbol of the keys to the heart. As a gift, it depends on the intent of the giver, but it is universally seen as good luck. We take that to mean lucky in love is a great combination of the different talismanic concepts. Lucky in love is a pretty great wish for your valentine this month.
There is no denying that Valentine’s Day is a popular day for popping the question. Getting engaged is probably the ultimate symbol of love for most people. The statement that you want to spend the rest of your life with someone is incredibly powerful, and we think the ring that comes with the question should probably measure up to the sentiment.
No matter what jewelry you choose to wear this February, we hope that it is worn in love and happiness. We would love to see the bling you received this Valentine’s Day. Show off your Valentine’s gifts by clicking on the comments button below.
