Valentine’s Day jewels for the boho-chic chick
If she has always been too cool for school, then Jade Jagger’s tourmaline, diamonds and ruby ring (below) with its skull and flower motifs is a good starting point. Best worn with beaten up cowboy boots and a flowing Alice Temperley dress. Urbane and chic, New York jeweller Retrouvai is the place where casually cool fashionistas find jewels to match their style. The pastel hues of a pale pink opal are offset by a striking watermelon tourmaline in the trendy and edgy pendant we have chosen.
If she likes to wear flowers in her hair, then Brazilian jeweller Casa Castro’s pink quartzite flower earrings with a deep red rhodolite at their centre will be the ones for her. What’s more they are handmade in the firm’s Sao Paolo atelier giving them a unique finish and hippy appeal.
Luxuriously indulgent Valentine’s Day jewels
Since the Ancient Greeks, the snake has long been a symbol of love, eternity and fidelity. Keep the tradition alive with Bulgari’s famous diamond-set Serpenti (top) for a sleek and glamorous gift that she is sure to treasure for decades. A Graff box is a good start to any love message. Surprise her with the Kiss diamond and ruby ‘X’ earrings that will become a long-lasting testament of your love – and generosity. If your love knows her jewellery, then Boghossian’s amethyst Merveilles necklace would make a sophisticated declaration of love. This high-end Geneva jeweller excels in complex gem-setting techniques and is a favourite of connoisseurs searching for originality and exquisite craftsmanship.
Women at ease with jewels will be drawn to the work of Fernando Jorge, the award-winning Brazilian designer. The Gleam ring (below) with its fluid sensual lines combined with soft pink, glowing rose quartz and amethyst was inspired by dancing flames, an apt symbol of your ardent love.
Valentine’s Day jewels for the unabashedly feminine
It is hard to go wrong with a Nudo ring by Pomellato and we have selected the soft pink quartz and diamond version of the famous stacking ring that will sit snuggly alongside any Nudo rings she may have or look pretty all on its own. Girly but with swagger, the pink sapphire pendant from the Catena collection by Nadine Aysoy is the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. Sure to win her heart, the new open version of the iconic camellia ring by Chanel (below) has a cute dangling flower charm in the form of Gabrielle Chanel's favourite flower. If bright and fun is her thing, a ring with fluorescent pink enamel and diamonds by designer Melissa Kaye will make her smile at your thoughtfulness and insight.
