Valentine's Gift Ideas

Looking for a gift for someone special? The wonderful thing about jewellery is it's so much more than just ornamental.

Valentine's Day traditionally was the celebration of romance and love. More recently this has also become a day to celebrate friendship. In some folk traditions, it is also a day to welcome Spring. Whatever it means to you, if you are looking for a gift, here are a few ideas with some appropriate meanings behind them. 

 

The timeless classic

Rose: The flower has long been symbol of love and romance, with Ancient Greeks associating the flower with the goddess Aphrodite. See Rose Jewellery.

A Mate for Life

Swan: The name Swan comes from ‘swen’ meaning to sound or to sing. Swans mate for life, this coupled with the heart shape they make when facing each other, means they have become a symbol of love and fidelity. See Swan Jewellery.
