With the most romantic day of the year just two days away, high street jewellers
F. Hinds share their top tips for choosing Valentine's Day gifts and keepsakes.
*Rose gold is by far the most romantic metal choice. With its warm rosy tones, rose gold jewellery has seen a huge increase in popularity over the past two years. We also see the love heart requested more on Valentine's Day and we all know why. The dainty love heart symbol represents the physical heart, which is known as the centre of emotion, affection and love.
*Red is the colour of love, which is why red gemstones like garnet and rubies are the ideal choice for this special day. Like rose gold, warm red tones are very romantic. Gemstones are not just pretty to look at, they also have special meanings behind them. Garnet represents faith, eternity and trust. Rubies symbolise love, enthusiasm and strength.
*Trilogy rings make beautiful promise or engagement rings and they're ideal for a surprise proposal or a special celebration. They contain three stones, each one representing something special – the past, the present and the future of the couple and their relationship. Trilogy engagement rings have shown a huge increase in popularity since Prince Harry proposed to Meghan Markle with a yellow gold diamond trilogy ring.
*Diamonds really are a girl's best friend! We all know how unique each diamond is and the word is actually derived from the Greek word 'adamas' which means invincible or indestructible. According to Roman mythology, Cupid's arrows contained diamonds which only adds to their romantic appeal. Most people think diamonds are only for special occasions, but with so many diamond jewellery pieces available at affordable prices they really can be worn for all occasions!
A stunning diamond jewellery piece would make Valentine's Day even more special so F. Hinds is offering all customers who spend £500 or more on diamonds an extra 20% off, and all customers who spend £200 or more an extra 10% off. Offer ends 14th February, 2019.
