Valentine's Day Gifting Essentials

Check out our gifting essentials guide to help you find the perfect present this February 14th. Whether you're looking for something timeless and elegant, or trendy and unique, this guide has got you covered. From classic diamond studs to trendy fashion jewelry and watches, we've rounded up some top options to make your gift-giving experience stress-free and enjoyable.

Where to Start?

First, we suggest picking a budget to stick to. Knowing how much you want to spend will help us guide you in the right direction regarding gifting. Second, start paying close attention to your significant others' preferences—with so many different designers, sizes, colors, and more—it's important to get the little things right when it comes to jewelry and watch gifts. Does she prefer white gold or yellow gold? Does he like watches with bracelet or leather straps better? These small details make a big difference in showing someone that you truly care. Read on to see some of our gift picks for Valentine's Day!

Heart-Shaped Jewelry

Heart-shaped jewelry is trending BIG—and we love it for more than just Valentine's Day. During our most recent trips to the JCK and Centurion Jewelry shows, we saw the heart motif at vendor booths throughout the event and at all price points and styles.

Stones in the shape of hearts have been increasing in popularity since early-to-mid 2023. In a recent article in The New York Times, Parisian jewelry designer Valerie Messika stated that though she once saw hearts as tacky or cliche, she now considers them "back in the game." Valerie also noted that the pandemic spurned this return as more declarations of love and the need to say 'I love you' came to the forefront. 

Necklaces for Layering

If you aren't exactly sure what jewelry piece she wants the most, it's hard to go wrong with a simple necklace that she can easily wear no matter the occasion. Our assortment of stackable necklaces ranges from the essential diamond pendant to luxe yellow and white gold options that pair with any outfit. 

When it comes to layering necklaces, it's important to find a good balance of thickness, lengths, colors, and textures to create a dynamic display. We recommend starting a necklace stack with your shortest piece and building from there. A good piece for this might be a diamond pendant necklace that doesn't overwhelm the look. From there, you can mix in a chain of choice or maybe a necklace with fringe or diamond drop accents to add texture to the look. Finish off the layers with your longest option—we love something toggled or a long lariat!

Golden Bangles, Cuffs & Bracelets

Bracelets and bangles make a wonderful Valentine's Day gift for the special person you're shopping for. Whether it's a delicate diamond accent bracelet or a bold and gold bangle, each piece can be chosen to reflect the recipient's personality and style, making it a thoughtful and personalized gesture. 

We suggest looking for diamond accent bracelets to go along with more solid golden bangle bracelets or cuffs to help balance weights if you're looking to stack your selection.

Silver Jewelry Gifts

You don't have to go out and spend an arm and a leg for something special. Try looking at our large selection of silver jewelry this Valentine's Day! 
Silver jewelry's affordability makes it accessible to a wide range of consumers, while its timeless appeal ensures enduring style across generations.

A Gift to Cherish Forever

Jewelry of any type makes for an exceptional Valentine's Day gift with its timeless appeal and ability to convey heartfelt emotions. Its enduring nature ensures that the sentiment behind the gift lasts long beyond the occasion itself. Whether it's a simple staple piece or something more personalized, jewelry serves as a tangible symbol of love and appreciation.
