Valentine’s Day ... A day on which you are given the opportunity to truly express your love to that special someone. But how do you genuinely accomplish this monumental, emotionally driven task? You choose the right piece of jewelry for your loved one.
Such a task can be a stressful project — after all, jewelry is not just a pretty accouterment. Jewelry is a highly personal object that comes to represent a myriad of emotions, milestones and meanings.
Jewelry is a highly personal object that comes to represent a myriad of emotions, milestones and meanings.
Where do you begin?
First, it is important to understand the meaning of the gift. Though many might argue that price alone is a determining factor, in this particular case, the emotional aspects far exceed the monetary ones. The connection that is made to the emotional message, and how that relates to one’s love and affection, is paramount. Giving a gift to your loved one should be more than a message that “Well, it is Valentine’s Day, so I felt I should get you something.” It should represent where you are in your relationship, whether exciting and new or celebrating a life spent together.
Second, if the gift doesn’t reflect the personality of the one receiving it, there is a good chance that it could be destined for the jewelry drawer — never to be seen again. This is where the personality of the recipient becomes critical. Determining the right aesthetic can solidify the meaning and emotional connection — making the gift truly special. Whether your loved one is attracted to bolder and more trendsetting fashions or the traditional, classical and elegant, your choice shows a deep understanding of that person.
Finally, there is the question of giving a gift that is truly unique. In today’s carbon-copy, mass-produced world, giving a gift that anyone can pick up at a large chain-store jeweler is not exactly the best representation of the words “I love you.” Is it? It speaks more of “Well, it was convenient.”
With all the aforementioned criteria, selecting the right gift for Valentine’s Day, or any other special occasion for that matter, probably sounds like a monumental and nearly impossible task.
