Valentine’s Day is a magical holiday for me. Love sweetens the air and the heart, creating a wonderful opportunity to express adoration for your significant other. Now, it’s true that nothing quite says amor like the gift of fine jewelry. Diamonds are often the gemstone of choice when it comes to Valentine’s Day gifts. There’s no doubt diamonds are dazzling, but did you know that other stunning stones, such as sapphires, emeralds and rubies, can be linked to romance as well? That’s right! With such a gorgeous array to pick from at Yelton Fine Jewelers, it won’t be hard to find something that fits your Valentine. I’ve selected a few of my favorites for you below.
I simply adore the blue sapphire (and not just because it’s my birthstone!). Throughout history, this resplendent gem has symbolized divinity, nobility, truth and faithfulness. It has also become representative of romance, particularly new love. Who can forget the incredible 12-carat blue sapphire in Lady Diana’s engagement ring, for instance? Some years after Lady Diana’s tragic death, that same ring carried on the tradition of royal romance through her son, Prince William. In 2010, he used that ring to propose to his then girlfriend, Kate Middleton. (And of course she said “Yes!”)
For those in the first blush of love, these elegant Le Vian sapphire and diamond earrings will shine brightly this Valentine’s Day. Featuring 1 carat of delicious Blueberry Sapphire with 1/8 carats of shimmering Vanilla Diamonds set in 14-Karat Vanilla gold, these earrings are an excellent way to commemorate a new romance.
Or perhaps you want to take the plunge and propose? You can’t go wrong with this exquisite Le Vian Sapphire Ring. The Cornflower Ceylon Sapphire gleams brilliantly with an eye-popping halo of Vanilla Diamonds. If you want to make a one-of-a-kind proposal for Valentine’s Day, this ring is absolutely perfect.
For centuries the ruby has symbolized power and passion. Great rulers wore rubies to display their dominance over empires. Warriors took them into battle as protection from harm. But rubies were also the “wedding stone”, the gem of desire, fiery love and ardent commitment. In the modern world, rubies are the traditional gift for 15th and 40th wedding anniversaries.
If your love is intense as the ruby, why not try this blazing Le Vian Ruby Ring? With 2 1/2 carats of Passion Ruby and 1/2 carats of Vanilla Diamonds set in 14-Karat Honey Gold, this ring will light a fire in her heart almost as fervent as your romance this Valentine’s Day.
Equally as captivating is the Fana Ruby and Diamond Pendant. Ravishing rubies are highlighted by lavish diamonds, igniting an abundance of radiance. Set in your choice of 14-Karat white, yellow or rose gold, this lively pendant burns luminously like your love.
The gorgeous emerald was once associated with Venus, the ancient Roman goddess of love and hope. The stone also had connections to the spring and new beginnings, as well as fidelity. The emerald represents a devoted, evergreen relationship, one which is always growing and maturing.
For your full-blooming romance, the Fana Glam Galore Emerald and Diamond Leaf Ring is the ideal companion. With dazzling emerald and shimmering diamonds, this ring comes in lustrous 14-Karat white, yellow or rose gold. It’s a fantastic Valentine’s Day gift for a love which has only gotten better with time.
I also admire the elegant Fana Double Oval Emerald and Diamond Bracelet. Customize this sensational piece with your choice of 14-Karat white, yellow or rose gold. This bracelet forms a shining circle a lot like your relationship: something without end.
