Promises, Promises: Eternity bands symbolize eternal love – a very appropriate concept for Valentine’s Day. The options are virtually unlimited: eternity rings look great in white gold, yellow gold, gemstones, diamonds, sterling silver and cubic zirconia. Mix metals, stones and finishes. It’s all a matter of personal taste. A few of the trends on the horizon: sterling silver and CZ baguettes; sapphire and diamond bands; wide pave bands.
Berry Good: Vibrant colored hues in beautiful berry colors like pink, purple and red are setting the tone for spring. Get a head start on the season’s best trends with brilliant colored gemstone jewelry. Gorgeous pink topaz gemstone bracelets are simply stunning, especially when each stone is framed with sparkling diamonds. Or try a pair of vivid purple amethyst stud earrings. For a bold look; wear the earrings with a crimson red dress (the fashion color of the season.) Ruby and garnet cocktail rings update just about any outfit – think big, bright and beautiful.
Forever Yours: Diamonds really are forever. That being said, why not dazzle that special someone on Valentine’s Day with a breathtaking diamond ring? From traditional (but never boring) solitaires to contemporary multi-stone styles to one-of-a-kind vintage finds, the diamond ring thrills beyond belief. Yet let’s not forget the allure of diamond earrings, bracelets and pendants. Diamond hoop earrings are probably the most versatile jewelry. Wear day or night; they work equally as well with jeans as they do with an evening gown. Diamond bangles, the ultimate fashion accessory, add remarkable style to any outfit. What’s in: pave station bangles, diamond twist bangles and silver diamond bangles. Pile on one bangle after the other for extra sparkle and shine.
Have a Heart: Is there anything more suitable for Valentine’s Day than heart-inspired jewelry? Delicate heart necklaces are the quintessential Valentine’s Day present. From yellow gold open heart pendants to pave diamond heart necklaces to sterling silver Y-necklaces, this jewelry staple possesses timeless appeal. Heart charm bracelets appeal to kids as well as adults. And diamond heart drop earrings are absolute show-stoppers. Be still my heart.
Stylish Classics: Fortunately some trends are here to stay. For example, love knot earrings never go out of style. Choose gold, silver or a combination of the two. Bows and ribbons on earrings, rings and pendants add a festive touch. Do consider drop gemstone and diamond earrings adorned with bows. How to make a gift really special? Personalized jewelry works every time. Keep in mind that monogrammed sterling silver bracelets and initial pendants are popular choices. Pearl jewelry captures the very essence of romance. Cultured pearl earrings and multi-row necklaces are an easy way to add elegance to one’s wardrobe. In terms of luxury jewelry, no stone is left unturned. Some truly spectacular choices: a 4.20 carat emerald ring in a platinum setting surrounded by dazzling diamonds; 5.5 carat diamond in-and-out hoop earrings; a Mikimoto South Sea white pearl necklace with a diamond clasp in 18 carat yellow gold.
Vintage Valentine: There’s something so utterly romantic about vintage style jewelry. Feminine and flirty, the art deco look pays homage to old world glamour. Rings, in particular, showcase intricate cut-out designs that give each piece a “one-of-a-
