Make this Valentine’s Day One She Won’t Soon Forget

Long celebrated as a day for romance, Valentine’s Day occurs annually on February 14, which falls on a Friday this year – perfect for wining and dining your significant other. If you have been thinking of proposing, it also just so happens to be the second most popular day to get engaged, according to wedding experts (Forrest, 2018). You may want to check out our “Do’s and Don’ts of Holiday Proposals” blog post for beneficial tips.

Heart-shaped boxes of chocolate – which can be traced back as far as the mid-nineteenth century – and long-stemmed red roses may be Valentine’s Day classics, but they tend not to last long. Chocolates will unavoidably melt, and flower bouquets will wilt. These types of gifts may also not be practical if your romantic partner has made a conscious effort to eat healthier or be more environmentally friendly.

If you are looking for the perfect gift that will ensure next month’s holiday is one your significant other will not soon forget, diamond ring design should be at the top of your list. Working with a jewelry designer allows you to create a personalized piece, like those that follow, which will be treasured forever.

Inspiration for Diamond Ring Design

Ruby Ring with Diamond Accents

Ruby is a clear choice for Valentine’s Day. It symbolizes passion and, according to the Gemological Institute of America, Europeans wore it in Medieval times to guarantee “success in love.” Rubies also have a hardness of nine on the Mohs scale, making it one of the hardest gemstones available, second only to a diamond. There are many design options available for these and other stunning gemstones. The diamond accent stones increase the ring’s radiance.
French Pave Halo Diamond Ring

Inspired from a country that brought us the “City of Love,” this flawless French pave diamond engagement ring is set in a wide band with round accent stones creating a halo around the stunning oval-cut center stone. Diamond ring design means that you can customize the center and side stones as well as metal type/color – gold (yellow, white, or mixed) or platinum. Split shank or twisted bands are two different options for making this ring yours.
