Love is in the air and every shop window in town is full of big red love hearts and heart-shaped chocolates. That’s right – it’s almost Valentine’s Day.
We love any opportunity to bestow our loved ones with gifts, whether that means treating them to a special dinner or lavishing them with the best designer jewellery on the market. The other thing we adore about Valentine’s Day is that we see an influx of new designs and trends emerging around the holiday.
As we approach the day of romance, here are the top romantic jewellery trends for Valentine’s month. Because why not celebrate love for the whole month? It’s time to update your accessories – or splash out and treat someone special.
Perhaps it’s because pink is integral to love, romance and Valentine’s Day but we’ve spotted a lot of rose gold this season. This soft hue is feminine and gentle but what we particularly like is that it flatters all skin tones whether cool, warm or neutral. Our insider style tip is that rose gold jewellery looks sensational when it is mixed with silver pieces. If your loved one tends to wear silver, pick out a pair of rose gold earrings or a rose gold ring that she can pair with her existing collection. On the other hand, if you haven’t branched out to rose gold yet – seize the opportunity this month.
Customisable jewellery is always in demand. It’s such a special experience to unwrap a piece of jewellery and find a secret engraving or yours and your other half’s initials interwoven. But this season it’s proving to be more popular than ever. Rather than personalising a heart-shaped piece of jewellery, consider something that she will wear year-round. Hearts can feel a little out of place once the season of love is behind us. Visit the best designer jewellery boutique for a top-quality personalisation service.
We typically associate pink diamonds and rose-red rubies with Valentine’s Day and the surrounding weeks. However, this year we are noticing that colourful gemstones of all shades and tones are hot on-trend. Consider what your recipient’s favourite colour is and treat her to a piece in that shade instead. She’ll love some green onyx earrings or a lapis lazuli ring that she can wear for the whole year, not just on Valentine’s Day.
Alongside jewellery, flowers are one of the most popular Valentine’s Day gifts. So it’s only logical that the two trends have merged! We’ve spotted floral pendants, drop gold earrings in the shape of a rose and flower-inspired rings hitting the shops ahead of the holiday. The great thing about floral patterns is that they work throughout the year – especially during the spring and summer seasons. This is a ‘blooming’ good choice for yourself or any women you wish to treat.
They used to say that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but we beg to differ. The stone that we are seeing everywhere these days is onyx. The traditional black onyx is known to provide protective qualities for the wearer which makes it an appealing choice of gift. Black is also a stylish alternative to the reds and pinks we see a lot of and we think it’s a great option for women who are more averse to Valentine’s Day but who you still want to treat. However onyx is also available in a variety of colours so you could also consider some striking green onyx earrings.
Elegant stud earrings are making a comeback this season which is wonderful news as they are so practical. Unlike drop earrings which can be a problem for some women’s occupations, a pair of small stud earrings may be worn for most types of work. They can also be worn for running errands and even going to the gym. However, they also flatter an evening or formal outfit. Choose a pair of small stud earrings that are encrusted with a jewel in her favourite colour or if you have the budget you could even treat her to diamond or pearl studs.
We hope you feel inspired to either revive your own jewellery collection this month or to treat the special women in your life to something that will spice up her own accessories with our jewellery offer.
