Find your way to her heart with these stunning pieces featuring hearts in various shapes and colors. A universal symbol of love, the heart conveys romantic love, affection, and unity. Some believe that the iconic emblem is derived from the shape of ivy leaves, which are said to represent fidelity.
Not surprisingly, given its profound meaning, the heart is a popular gift option that is both traditional and modern. When choosing a gift for yourself or someone else, you can hardly go wrong with the heart motif, whether it's a heart necklace, bracelet, or pendant.
If you’re more about substance than form, we recommend one of these three gemstones that are among the most closely associated with love.
According to legend, St. Valentine, the patron saint of romantic love, used to wear an amethyst ring with a carving of Cupid. Therefore, we can’t think of a better gemstone to celebrate your love on this special day.
Celebrating both Valentine’s day and their birthday? Amethyst is also the birthstone for February and Pisces. You can get away with one gift that covers both important events!
Rose quartz is also referred to as the "crystal of unconditional love" and has its roots in both Roman and Ancient Greek mythology, especially in Venus and Aphrodite, the goddesses of love. Such were its associations with love and sensuality that today it is often considered an aphrodisiac.
In one tale, Aphrodite defends her injured lover Adonis in a battle against Ares, but stumbles over a thorn bush and injures herself. As Aphrodite cradles the dying Adonis in her arms, her blood drips onto white quartz stones, coloring them pink. Zeus' act of compassion in returning Adonis to Aphrodite for six months one year after their blood merged caused the love stone, rose quartz, to become the primary representation of reconciliation and unwavering love. Tell this story when you donate an exquisite piece of rose quartz jewelry, and they will love you forever!
The ruby has long symbolized romantic love. It is said to promote fidelity and devotion in a love relationship. In fact, the ruby was referred to as the "beloved stone" by French jewelers in the 1800s. Throughout history, the ruby has represented royalty and passion.
Ruby jewelry is considered a talisman that can protect its wearer while bringing joy and passion into their lives. The red gemstone makes room for the flame of love and passion to grow. It helps break down the barriers we put up to keep others out of our lives. Being the hardest gemstone after the diamond, it can be considered an ideal gemstone to protect your love from outside influences.
The intense red color coupled with strong symbolic meaning makes ruby jewelry an excellent choice for Valentine's Day.
