Valentine’s Day Collection
Happy Valentine's Day
Valentine’s day on the 14th February each year has evolved from a historical Saint’s day to the most romantic day of the year on which friends and lovers historically exchange messages and love tokens. Jewellery with its rich symbolism is one of the most popular, traditional and enduring gifts. Cupids, hearts and arrows, lockets with photos or messages, pansies intimating “think of me”, turquoise and the colour turquoise symbolising the forget me not, rubies passion, diamonds true love and pearls remembrance all convey a message of love. St Valentine was thought to wear an amethyst ring carved with an image of Cupid. There is no more romantic day to pledge your love with a beautiful authentic period diamond or gem engagement ring, while the anguish of love is clearly conveyed by the unusual intaglio ring depicting the Devil carrying Cupid on his back with the inscription “ Le diable emporte L’amour”, colloquially “Damn Love”.
“Think of me”. Love. An eloquent declaration of passion and a plea for love to be reciprocated. Discover more below.
