How to Choose Valentine's Day Jewelry in 2021

We all know the classic Valentine’s Day gifts - boxes of chocolates shaped in hearts, flowers, and other little trinkets that show a token of our love.

Every year the Valentine’s Day gifts for her are the same, but this year, let’s focus on something that lasts - jewelry. Unlike wilted flowers and melted chocolate, Valentine’s Day jewelry gifts are a romantic choice that your Valentine can enjoy long after the holiday is over.

When it comes to choosing Valentine’s Day jewelry for her, we know there are many options. Where do we even begin? To help show your love this holiday, our jewelry experts at Saiso curated a guide to help you find the perfect piece for your loved one. Take a look!

Why Gift Jewelry for Valentine’s Day

Why Gift Jewelry for Valentine’s Day

Before we share our go-to Valentine’s Day jewelry ideas, let’s discuss why jewelry makes the perfect gift.

Valentine’s Day jewelry is a gift that withstands the tests of time. While many Valentine’s Day gifts focus on flowers or a sweet treat that lasts only for a moment, few presents last for more than a few days. But with a beautiful, new jewelry piece, your Valentine will forever be reminded of this year’s special gift whenever they wear it. By choosing Valentine’s jewelry for her, you’re ensuring you’re giving a present she will love for years to come, and one that you will see again and again and remember the moment you shared it.

Not only will you notice your loved one wearing your gift even months after the holiday, but others will too. Valentine’s jewelry for girlfriend gifts is sure to get compliments - a moment where she can share who bought it for her, reminding her of how unique and sentimental the gift is.

As if we need another reason, we’ve got one more! Valentine’s Day jewelry gifts tend to have another big perk - sales. In honor of the season of love, many jewelry brands offer special sales, allowing you to get an extra-special piece at a more affordable cost. It’s a win-win for you and your Valentine.

How to Choose Valentine’s Day Jewelry

How to Choose Valentine’s Day Jewelry

There are a lot of Valentine jewelry ideas on the market, and it can get pretty overwhelming. From earrings to necklaces and rings, to the color of the metal and the overall style, there’s a lot to consider to ensure you find just the right Valentine’s jewelry for her.

The best Valentine’s Day jewelry is the one that is uniquely selected for your Valentine. We all have special preferences and individualized tastes, and taking the time to figure that out before making a purchase is sure to impress your date. But don’t stress too much - we have some ways to help narrow down your selection.

1. Consider Their Style

Before making a purchase, think about your Valentine’s style. Is it classic? Bohemian? Elegant or edgy? These differentiations can help zero-in on the perfect piece for them. A more bohemian style isn’t going to love that tennis bracelet you spotted, but if you take an extra moment to think about their style before shopping, you’ll find just the right Valentine’s Day jewelry for them.

2. Look at Their Current Collection

An excellent way to figure out what your Valentine will love most is by looking at their current jewelry collection. What does she wear most? If she loves layering necklaces and rings, you know she’s sure to love a new one to add to the stack.

Taking a peek at their current jewelry collection goes both ways, too. If they don’t own a single bracelet, chances are this isn’t their jewelry preference and won’t make the best gift for them.

3. Take Note of Metal Preference

Silver or gold? This is an important, easy step to make sure you find the perfect gift.

Many people have strong preferences about the finish of their jewelry, with the most fundamental difference being silver and gold colors. Check out your Valentine’s current collection, and see which metal they seem to use most. This will easily narrow down your Valentine’s Day jewelry for her. 

4. Consider Sizing

For some jewelry styles, sizing is key to making sure it fits your Valentine. This can be tricky, particularly for items like rings that are hard to guess. But if you know your Valentine’s appropriate jewelry sizing - great! Otherwise, try to opt for pieces where sizing won’t come into play, like with earrings and necklaces.

Valentine’s Day Jewelry Gift Ideas

Now you’re ready for the fun part - our Valentine’s Day jewelry ideas. Let’s get right into our go-to’s!

Valentine’s Day Bracelets

Valentine’s Day Bracelets

Who doesn’t love a bracelet? This beautiful jewelry choice sits as a reminder on your Valentine’s wrist and comes in various styles. Bracelets make a great selection of Valentine’s Day jewelry for girlfriend gifts, offering simple, classic designs to larger statement pieces.

When purchasing a bracelet, consider the occasion you want your Valentine to wear this piece. Is it something you’re hoping they can wear every day? A simple chain bracelet or tennis bracelet will work perfectly. Is it a bigger statement piece to wear to an event? A cuff bracelet, or maybe even a charm bracelet, is ideal. It’s up to you - have fun with it!

Valentine’s Day Necklace

Valentine’s Day Necklace Necklaces are one of the best Valentine’s Day jewelry choices. This jewelry piece allows for a lot of customization that can serve as a sentimental reminder to your Valentine.   Not sure what we mean by that? For Valentine’s Day, we love engraved necklaces. Think of a significant date or your initial that can be engraved into a necklace - acting as a constant reminder of your love on a beautiful new jewelry piece.   For Valentine’s day jewelry, we also love initialed necklaces. This initial can be either yours or theirs (for Valentine’s Day, we vote yours!) and shows your customized care in choosing their gift.

Valentine’s Day Rings

Valentine’s Day Rings

Rings have long been the symbol of love, and while we aren’t all ready to share engagement rings this year, a different ring is still a great Valentine’s Day gift.

There are many ring options available other than those with a large diamond that require an “I do” at the end. For Valentine’s Day, we love simple, solid band rings for everyday wear. For more of a showstopper, opt for a cocktail ring with a standout colored gemstone for a more fancy occasion. Remember - considering your Valentine’s style is key for finding the right gift!

As mentioned before, rings do come with a bit of risk as sizing is essential. If possible, find out your Valentine’s ring size as casually as possible without ruining the surprise to ensure it fits their fingers.

Valentine’s Day Earrings

Valentine’s Day Earrings

Our favorite gift for Valentine’s Day this year is earrings. Valentine earrings are a jewelry option where size won’t complicate things, and they can be worn any day and for every occasion. You can truly never have too many earrings!

There are a lot of different Valentine’s Day earrings that will make the perfect gift, so we have narrowed it down to a few of our favorites your valentine is sure to love.

Jewelry Gifts for Men

Jewelry isn’t only for women! Men wear jewelry too, and it’s a welcome gift for Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day jewelry for men will be a surprise gift they are sure to love and wear every day. For the perfect gift for your man, we have some great men’s jewelry gift ideas and pieces he will love wearing.

Necklaces

Valentine's Day Jewelry Gift for Men Necklace

Necklaces are super on-trend for men right now. A simple chain necklace is a great jewelry gift for him and especially great for a man that is just getting into wearing jewelry. The most on-trend necklaces for men are yellow gold chain styles - an understated, sleek choice that adds the perfect finishing touch to their wardrobe.

Rings

Valentine's Day Jewelry Gift for Men Ring

Rings are a great everyday piece for both men and women. This is a piece of romantic jewelry for him that he can wear every day and think of you - and who doesn’t want that? We particularly love textured metals when selecting a jewelry gift for him, as this style offers an unpolished detail with a more masculine vibe.

Cuff Links

Valentine's Day Jewelry Gift Cuff Links

For elevated men’s jewelry gift ideas, we recommend cuff links. These are a must-have for a man that frequently wears a suit, and you can find customized ones that suit their needs and tastes.

Bracelets and Watches

Like necklaces, bracelets are a simple everyday jewelry gift for him. This can be another good introduction to jewelry for a man. Plus, this can include watches, something everyone, not just men, likes to have on hand!
