February Means Valentines!

Back to Blog

Yep, it’s that time again. Remember last year when you said to yourself “I coulda done that a little earlier – and maybe a little better?” – well, here’s your chance. We have got you covered!

Did you know that in the US, Valentine’s Day first became popular in the 18th century, when European settlers brought the tradition with them to the colonies. It was not widely celebrated until the 19th century, and in the early 20th century Valentine’s Day became more of a holiday, with the rise of greeting card companies and gift-giving. These days of course, it’s a huge deal and often involves dinner, flowers – and jewelry!

Valentine’s is a great time to show that special someone just how much they mean to you. Sure, you can do the flower and dinner thing, but we think maybe adding something a little more permanent this year might do the trick.Worth mentioning too, it doesn’t have to be a partner these days, often people celebrate with family and friends too. It’s about showing your love, and what better way than with a reminder that lasts forever!

We have a huge selection of beautiful jewelry for all tastes and occasions in-store. You don’t have to go wild (although that always goes down well), and there are some beautiful gifts you can “wow” her with this Feb 14th. How about some gemstone earrings in her favorite color? Maybe a small diamond pendant or right-handed ring? There are probably a bunch of options you may not have considered, and we can help you right here, in-store.

Amethyst is the traditional birthstone for February, but you can also buy a birthstone for Valentine’s – there nothing written that it has to be given in that month for a birthday. See below for a list of birthstones, so you can look through some options. Knowing her (or his) birthstone is a great start to finding the perfect gift, so come-in and we’ll show you what will work! You have a huge “bank” of jewelry knowledge right here in the store to help you. Fellas – we do this for a living – so let us help you find that perfect gift.

Ladies, you can treat your man too! There is an increasing range of men’s jewerly available and even some pretty cool alternative metals like titanium and tungsten can work for the man who doesn’t wear traditional metals. Even if your guy is not so much into jewelry, we bet there’s a piece here he’ll love (cufflinks, money clips, tie clips and more) – there’s so much choice.
