Valentine Jewelry For Her

Updated on September 5, 2014

A Guide to help you make the right choice.

Are you thinking of gifting jewelry to your Valentine this year, and really not sure just what? Let me give you some ideas and things to think about before you make your choice, and hopefully it will make that choice a little easier.

I know as a woman I have not always been happy with the jewelry gifts my husband has given me in the past. I do cherish them because he took the time to go out and find something he thought I would love, I just may have not chosen the same thing for myself.

If you are a man or a woman searching for just the right jewelry I have some questions that you can ask yourself regarding the personality and the style of the person you are shopping for.

Ask yourself a few questions about the lady first

1. Take notice, and look at the jewelry she wears a lot, what does she seem to wear more often?

2. Is it in Silver tones, Gold tones, or both, or maybe she only likes pure Silver or Gold?

3. Does she wear a lot of fashion jewelry?

4. Very important, is she allergic to fashion jewelry? (Some woman can only wear Silver or Gold.)

5. Does she ALWAYS have to wear a watch?

6. Does she feel naked without her earrings on, or a few rings on her fingers?

7. Does she like to make a statement with bold jewelry that really stands out?

8. Is she in love with Vintage jewelry or the Vintage style?

9. Does she wear very small and simple jewelry or does she like a variety?

10.Is she spiritual, or naturalistic, romantic, or all of these things?

11. Do words mean a lot to her?

12.Does she collect anything that can be used in a piece of jewelry?

Get the idea?

Do not just go out and buy just anything, think about it first, if you havn't already. Try to make it a special gift.

For example: I love to collect vintage items, I like romance, words mean a lot to me, I am very spiritual and I love nature, so there could be quite a few choices here. Vintage jewelry, something romantic such as a heart, jewelry with words of inspiration, anything spiritual like an Angel. I find butterflies to be very spiritual too, and birds.

It makes sense to think about what the lady you are gifting is interested in.

Maybe someone should tell my husband that too.

Ideas galore, but what about her personality?

Jewelry by personality type.

Let's think about her personality shall we?

As I asked you before about the type of jewelry she wears already, what is her personality like?

What other interests does she have?

Is she into Fashion, the latest trends? She is probably going to be expensive then. *Just kidding, but honestly, some women go for brand names only , and then other's don't, we all have a right to be ourselves don't we?

Is your Valentine the stay at home type, casual and laid back, not interested in dressing up too much. She would probably like something more simple then rather than bling bling, or stick in your face kind of jewelry. Not that there is anything wrong with it, I like it all but there are times when you just want to feel simple and still feel beautiful.

Let me show you a few examples.

Let's start with Hearts - Hearts are like a token of your love to her...... maybe

Maybe your Valentine is the romantic type?

Then a heart could very well be a good choice for Valentines Day, or any day for that matter.

A Red heart is a symbol of Valentines Day, but that would be no good at all if she doesn't like the colour red. Not to worry, there are so many other styles to choose from. Silver or Gold? How about both together if you are not sure?

Wrap it up....presentation is everything

Always make sure to wrap your gift up nicely or have it gift wrapped, I believe presentation of a gift goes a long way.

You could also try to be more creative and pop the jewelry inside a box of chocolates.

I think if you live together the idea of placing a single rose on her pillow with your jewelry gift is so romantic. When she get's home from work and goes upstairs to change it would be a big surprise.

When it comes right down to it just making her happy is the most important thing, and letting her know how you feel.

Butterflies are a girls best friend - is your lady a nature lover?

This brings me to Butterflies, a favorite of mine , not just for jewelry but in every way. I like to use them in my art, I like to take photographs of them, I love to watch them flutter around in nature.

I would never wear a ring with a butterfly on it, unless it was teeny tiny, because I just don't wear large rings, I have small hands and it just doesn't look right, so don't go for a large ring if your Valentines other rings are smaller, better to be safe than sorry.

I would wear a pendant with a larger butterfly and I do wear one with a small butterfly that I have a lot.

Getting the idea? Go with your heart too , just make sure this is something she is interested in, and also fits her body type.

Spiritual jewelry

Is your Valentine spiritual ? Does she read a lot of spiritual books, metaphysical , healing books or even self help books about the inner self?

You don't know? Better go look at the books she has been reading lately and find out, it can tell you a lot about a person.

She may think that Angels are very special, a cross very spiritual or things from nature like a butterfly or a bird.

Watch out for Cupid's arrow... it's sharp!

Skulls may be her style - they are still very popular

Maybe your Valentine is more into the skull thing. Just make sure you know what style of skull she likes, is it the cute looking skulls with the cupid mouths?

Maybe not, then it could be the real Gothic style skulls mixed with crosses and rosary beads, or just a simple skull mixed with some simple little hearts.

Maybe she is the kind of lady who loves diamonds AND skulls.

Below are a few ideas in various price range.

Buy a single rose and place it on her pillow with a beautiful piece of jewelry.

Presentation is important too.

Vintage style jewelry - it is often very ornate in design

The jewelry below is just an example of the beautiful Vintage style. If your Valentine likes to collect Vintage items or antiques, maybe she would enjoy something like this, or maybe you would have to buy her the real thing, an antique piece of jewelry for example. This means it was made over 30 years ago at least, and has probably belonged to someone else.

Are you planning on jewelry as a gift for your Valentine? - I would love to hear about it.

      I love this thoughtful approach to gift-giving. Returning to sprinkle a blessing. It always means so much to receive a customized or personalized gift that is truly the essence of the recipient. So wonderful to know that another person really knows you.

      @ernieplotter: Ahhh that's nice, but think of this. It is an expensive ring that she will have to wear for the rest of her life with you, so if you want to choose the ring you better hope she is going to love it :) I would prefer to go out with my fiancé and choose a ring together, that is what my husband and I did.

      If you want to do the proposal with a ring , then go ahead, it certainly is romantic, but think about the type of gold she likes. White gold or yellow? Maybe she prefers platinum? Does she like simple rings, or something more ornate. Does she have tiny hands? Maybe a large ring would be too much.

      I would make sure that when you purchase the ring you are allowed to exchange it for something else and let your love know that she will not hurt your feelings if the ring you chose is not quite right for her.

      Good luck :)

      This is a really helpful gift guide. The way you approached selecting the right Valentine's Day gift was excellent. More than half the fun of giving a gift of love is thinking about what might be truly appreciated by the gift recipient. I saw several jewelry items that I would love to receive. You have excellent taste.

      No, I'm not planning on gifting any jewelry on Valentine's Day but for those who are, you have provided lots to think about. I love that you encourage people to stop and think about what the recipient LIKES in jewellery before they purchase it. Blessed.

      Ha, I just love this title, 'Skulls may be her style.' You've certainly considered all kinds of tastes with this one. Oh and hey, it is still January, believe me definitely NOT too late for a guy at all. Some don't think about Valentine's day until Feb 13th! Lovely lens, keep 'em coming,
