Meaningful Jewellery Ideas for a Perfect Valentine’s Day
Nothing says love like a beautiful piece of jewellery. Jewellery gifts for a loved one are always a great idea, but especially so on Valentine’s Day. What better way to say you care than a carefully selected piece of jewellery. In fact, finely made jewellery allows love to be expressed in all its different guises and colours. Here are some jewellery pieces that resonate with the very essence of love.
Use Your Words
The word love says it all. When it’s written in a piece of jewellery, it becomes an unequivocal declaration.
Mikimoto’s Akoya pearl and diamond Love necklace and bracelet are as elegant as they are cleverly crafted. A ribbon of 18k pink gold spells the word love, highlighted by a pristine white Akoya pearl, and a jauntily suspended collet-set diamond.
Yana Nesper’s Love bracelet features the word love crafted in rose-gold plated silver cursive, set on a freshwater pearl bracelet with a macramé toggle clasp. The clean lines and immaculate design make this bracelet a heart melting vow of love.
You and Me…together
The Toi et Moi ring setting has a long and romantic history. Forever associated with romantic love, be it the sapphire and diamond ring Napoleon gave his wife Josephine, or more recently the emerald and diamond sparkler with which Machine Gun Kelly proposed to Megan Fox, for people in love, toi et moi rings have yet to lose their appeal.
Assael’s take on the classic Toi et Moi ring embraces beautiful pearls and diamonds. Whether it is their golden South Sea pearl and radiant-cut fancy yellow diamond ring or their white South Sea pearl and emerald cut white diamond version, both rings are marked with a complementarity of shapes and textures, that is the true soul of toi et moi. Classic and effortlessly sophisticated, these toi et moi pearl and diamond rings by Assael are a gorgeous iteration of this timeless ring style.
Jewellery designer Melanie Georgacopoulos’s brilliant Double Pearl Nacre ring is a modern and very innovative take on the toi et moi ring style. Handcrafted from recycled 18k rose gold, lavender Mother-of-Pearl and two lavender freshwater pearls, this ring takes “you and me” to the next level.
you are my sun, my moon, and all my stars
These unforgettable words by E.E. Cummings encapsulate what it feels to be in love.
The Galaxy earrings by Autore have been crafted as spirals of gold, sprinkled with white diamonds. The ‘galaxies’ swirl around lustrous near-white South Sea pearls, an image that is both arresting and quite lovely.
E Ho’āla means sunrise in Hawaiian and Maui Divers’ E Ho’āla earrings are a Hawaiian sunrise realized in gold, diamonds and Akoya pearls. There’s nothing more romantic than watching a sunrise with the person you love and these earrings have distilled those feelings into a piece of jewellery.
Ribbons of Love Tied Around the Heart
Ribbons and bows…what is love if not a ribbon of emotions tying one heart to the other?
Italian craftsmanship, exceptional gem material and meticulous attention to detail are the hallmarks of Picchiotti Fine Jewelry.

There is something to be said about owning and appreciating pre-loved jewellery pieces. Moreover, if they are romantic jewels, their story of love does not just end abruptly, it continues with you. An Edwardian bow brooch, mounted in platinum and set with with glittering old-cut diamonds and a superb drop-shaped pearl may be something worth considering as a Valentine’s Day gift to a loved one?
