There are barely 4 weeks left to Valentine’s day. And for you procrastinators out there (you know who you are), if you want to really impress your wife, girlfriend or fiancée with a made just for her piece of jewelry, this is the time to head over to your neighborhood/family jeweler. And not to worry, if you don’t actually have a family jeweler and don’t want to pay for overpriced jewelry from national or big name chains and shops, I will give you the name of my family jeweler at the end of this entry.
MADE TO ORDER, CUSTOM PENDANTS/NECKLACES
Rose gold or pink gold is big this season. This original piece is a collection of a family’s initials, and now you can have one made just for your significant other. You can have your wife and kids initials made (or just the kids initials) or for young couples without children yet, you can customize with both of your initials. Unique and fashionable, you will get extra props for this one. Available in 14K rose gold, yellow or white gold.
Another custom order piece is this very trendy and fashionable diamond encrusted nameplate. First popularized in the 90′s by Sarah Jessica Parker’s SATC’s Carrie Bradshaw, this is an updated, stylized version of the original.
If your other half is more into the classic or vintage styles here are a few timeless pieces that would be a great addition to her collection.
Circle of love
A traditional looking piece, this simple yet elegant circle pendant is a symbol of the circle of love that you and your partner have embraced together. Its prong-set diamonds will add sparkle to your loved one’s ensemble.
Key to your Heart
Another classic piece, this key pendant is a sweet reminder that only your significant other holds the key to your heart. Available in all white or yellow gold, or as shown here you can mix a yellow gold chain with a white gold pendant, a recent trend that makes mix and matching fun.
