Valentine’s Day Diamond Gift Ideas That Will Melt Her Heart

Diamond’s are a girl’s best friend, so sang Marilyn Monroe in the film Gentleman Prefer Blondes, and few women would argue with that. Diamonds are a wonderful present to a loved one on any celebration date, but particularly Valentine’s Day. Diamond pendants, rings and earrings are the most popular diamond gifts, all available in a large variety of shapes, prices and meanings to help you select the most appropriate gift.

Choosing a diamond

 jewellery shoppingDiamonds that are round in shape look larger for their carat weight than many other cuts, since circular cuts are more shallow. This means you can melt her heart without melting your credit card. You can also choose faux diamonds, or synthetic diamonds, that are stones that look like a diamond, but are made from a different material, for example, cubic zirconia.

A good faux diamond resembles a real diamond as closely as possible in terms of physical properties and appearance. The best faux diamonds are cubic zirconia, white sapphire, and moissanite which all look like the real thing, though moissanite is more colourful than a real diamond and white sapphire is not easy to source. Cubic zirconia, made from zirconium dioxide and commonly listed as CZ, is one of the most widely used materials to make faux diamonds and is popular because its price is much less than a real diamond.

Diamond gifts for the one you love

Diamonds will show her how much you truly admire and respect her. Non-engagement diamond jewellery includes a wide range of styles to suit all preferences.

Pendants

From a classic diamond solitaire pendant to a plethora of fancy styles including abstract designs to florals, from classics to modern. You can choose jewellery in a mix of colours so there will be something in her favourite hue and style that fits her personality. If you are not sure, look in her jewellery box when she’s out, see what she enjoys wearing or ask her friends for advice.

Diamond earrings

Love is in the detail. A pair of fine diamond earrings are timeless, elegant and always in style. They are also something that most women would love to have in their collection. They can be worn day and night to give her look the finishing touch and coming in a range of carat weights, you can find the perfect pair to fit your budget. For something a little different, look to buy a diamond hoop, a heart-shaped diamond or diamond drop earrings that are both beautiful and elegant.

Bracelets

The classic diamond tennis bracelet is always a good choice, but you don’t have to always play it safe as there are many modern ways to wear a diamond bracelet. Bracelets come in a range of precious metals with diamond accents in a wide range of shapes, styles, and price points so that you are certain to find one that is suited to her style. A white-gold bracelet will turn heads and is a must-have in every woman’s jewellery box. The number of diamonds is dependent on your budget, with a white gold option adding to the jewels sparkle.

Jewellery sets

While diamond rings are the obvious choice to declare your love, your lover may prefer a diamond pendant and earrings set as an alternative. Add the heart shape into the earrings and pendant design to make it clear just how important she is to you.

A diamond gift for a close friend

You may have a close friend or daughter who has your heart too, and the gift of a fine necklace in yellow, white or red gold will add a subtle sparkle to any outfit. A diamond pendant on the necklace will add finesse and makes the perfect gift.

Diamond rings are heavily symbolic, representing the strong commitment between two lovers, so are not considered appropriate for a close friend or family member, but other diamond gifts of jewellery are appropriate. Diamond earrings are an elegant gift for a close friend, with alternatives including diamond pendants that will also show how much you care, without the romantic overtone that a diamond ring represents.

Of course you can give a matching set of a pendant and earrings to make the occasion that little bit more special. A pendant with diamond detail gives a luxurious and extravagant appearance.
