valentines buying guide

Valentine’s Day jewelry is perfect for showing your partner how much you care. While flowers and chocolates are popular Valentine’s Day gifts, they can’t compare to designer jewelry. From small gestures to splurge-worthy gems, glittering jewelry is a timeless gift that your love will cherish for years.

If you’re considering jewelry this Valentine’s Day, you’ve come to the right place. We’ll explain the significance of Valentine’s Day jewelry, how to select the perfect piece, and even how to present your gift to your partner.

Significance of Valentine’s Day Jewelry

For several reasons, jewelry is one of the most traditional and treasured gifts for Valentine’s Day celebrations. The glitz and glamour of precious metals and gemstones make them ideal gifts for someone you love.

Jewelry symbolizes love and commitment. A brilliant pendant or sparkling earrings can physically represent your love for your partner. It’s a reminder that they can carry with them everywhere they go. 

Valentine’s Day jewelry is timeless. When you want a gift that will stand the test of time and be just as meaningful in years to come, jewelry is often your best option. One day, years from now, you can look back at your relationship and all the Valentine’s Day celebrations you’ve had together. They will be displayed in all their sparkling glory in your loved one’s jewelry collection.

Jewelry is intensely personal. When chosen carefully, each piece speaks volumes about the person wearing it. You can also have pieces engraved or otherwise personalized to ensure a one-of-a-kind gift she’ll never forget.

Jewelry is versatile. There are so many different types of jewelry and styles to choose from. You'll surely find the perfect gift for your Valentine, no matter their tastes or preferences. It’s hard to imagine a person for whom the ideal piece of jewelry doesn’t exist!

So why should you choose jewelry for a Valentine’s Day gift? We can't think of a more perfect option for this love-themed holiday. Jewelry may just be the best gift for Valentine’s Day!


Once you’ve decided that jewelry is the way to go, it’s time to start narrowing down your choice. You want to find a wearable treasure that reflects the look, style, and personality of the person you buy it for.

Matching Her Style

You’ll need to carefully consider your loved one’s style when choosing Valentine’s Day gifts for her. Spend some time getting to know what she likes and how she presents herself to the world.

  • What colors does she tend to wear? Notice the metals she prefers (white gold? yellow gold? rose gold?) and the colors in her wardrobe. 

  • What is her preferred style? Is she trendy and modern? Minimalist? Classic? Does she prefer raw and edgy statement pieces, the elegance of tradition, or delicate, sparkling accents? Is she a huge fan of layering jewelry, or does she prefer to wear one signature piece at a time?

  • Keep an eye on the jewelry she already wears. Are there particular pieces that she favors? You could purchase a pair of pearl stud earrings to match a treasured pendant or a fine bracelet that will go with the rings she wears daily. 

Once you’ve determined her style, choose a piece of Valentine’s Day jewelry that complements it. Look for metals similar to those she already wears and gems or other accents matching her preferred colors. 

Sentimental & Personalized Jewelry

Another excellent option is to choose a jewelry gift with personalization or sentimental value. Personalization is a timeless trend that makes any gift unique. This idea can be as simple as adding an engraved monogram or a small message to your chosen piece. You could choose jewelry that features her birthstone or the birthstones of her children. 

For a gift with true sentimental value, consider having the stones from a family heirloom worked into a piece of jewelry. At Ylang 23, we’d be happy to connect you with one of our renowned designers to rework a special piece for a one-of-a-kind gift. 

Romantic Jewelry

Finally, jewelry with romantic symbolism is a favorite for Valentine’s Day. Think of pieces with hearts or flowers. Or choose pieces with pink sapphires or red rubies. You could find Valentine’s jewelry that incorporates the word “love” into their composition. Or consider a more personal message like an Eiffel Tower to remember your honeymoon in Paris or something featuring her zodiac sign or initials.

How to Surprise Your Partner with a Valentine’s Day Gift

Once you’ve chosen the perfect Valentine's Day gifts, it’s time to consider the presentation. Create an event around your Valentine’s Day jewelry to make her feel special and loved.

Plan a creative and fun date

Start with planning your date for Valentine’s Day. Consider something different from your usual date ideas. If you typically go to dinner and a movie, switch it up. Take her to the theater or consider an activity you’ve always wanted to try together. Make arrangements and reservations early, as Valentine’s Day bookings tend to fill up quickly!

Plan the surprise reveal

Next, consider when and how you will present your glittering and glamorous gift. Enlist the aid of the staff of your chosen venue to help you deliver the wearable treasure in a way that she will never forget.

Choose the Right Moment

Timing is everything, and that’s doubly true of romantic gifts. Is she the type of person who will appreciate a showy public gift? Or is she more likely to prefer receiving a gift in private? Will she appreciate receiving the gift in an Instagrammable setting, ready for a selfie? Or will she want to keep the moment private between the two of you?

Necklaces are another excellent option for Valentine’s gifts. Whether your loved one is a jewelry novice or maven, they can rock our delightful designer necklaces. Wear one necklace alone to make a statement or add to other designs they adore to create a curated collection. 

Since necklaces are worn close to the heart, they are seen as a representation of love and affection. Consider a stunning pendant with room for a personalized message on the reverse side or something with special meaning related to your partner.


Many choose to gift glittering earrings brimming with beauty on Valentine’s Day. Earrings are the ideal gift for both timeless and trendy wearers. There are many classic styles they can wear daily alongside bold and beautiful pieces that steal the show.


Many give rings as Valentine’s Day gifts, as they symbolize love. The shape of a circle is unending, symbolizing eternity and eternal devotion. Rings are the ideal meaningful gift. They are often worn for long periods of time, becoming a signature piece and creating an unforgettable heirloom. 


Another popular option, bracelets, are an excellent choice for your Valentine. They can be elegant and refined or funky and fun, depending on their style and composition. Ylang 23 has everything from colorful beads to precious stones, you are sure to find something that fits your partners personality.

Pearl Jewelry

Pearls make wonderful gifts. They are naturally occurring in oysters, making them symbolic of purity and innocence. Because they take time to form, they can also symbolize commitment and devotion. Look for pearl necklaces and earrings that are classic, elegant, fun, and funky.


When you give charms as gifts, you can easily convey nearly any message you like. Look for an option that matches your love’s tastes and interests. You can pick a single design or several charms within a theme.
