All You Need is Love… But a Little Sparkle Never Hurts- Our Valentine’s Day Top 10

Love is in the air! Is that loving feeling being hampered by the frustrations of finding the perfect gift? We have you covered with this year’s Valentine’s Day Top 10! Read on to find out our picks for the perfect gifts to help express your feelings of love this Valentine’s Day.

1- Make it Meaningful

The perfect gift has as much to do with the thought put into it as it does the gift itself. Jewelry is a very personal gift. Finding a piece that expresses a meaningful sentiment is a wonderful way to let your loved one know that they took the time to find something they believe would be significant to them.

We love both our talismans and Compass Rose collections to help bring meaning to a beautiful piece of jewelry. Our Pyrrha talismans are handmade from antique wax seals and use heraldry to represent different sentiments and ideals. Compass Rose impresses upon the wearer the joy of finding a person who is the steady star that helps them navigate their way through life.

We also love Brighton’s new Love Lockets line as a sentimental gift. These shining lockets come in a wide variety of sizes and lengths. Many of them feature Brighton’s signature heart- perfect for Valentine’s Day! Best of all- we can print a photo from your phone while you wait and install it in the locket for you!

2- From Here to Eternity

Jewelry that symbolize the everlasting nature of love is always a hit on Valentine’s Day. While hearts have always been the go-to symbol to exemplify love, it is always nice to find something new and fresh. We think pieces featuring the infinity symbol and the love knot show off your love in an elegant and classic way.

Right Picture: Freida Rothman Sterling Silver & CZ Eternity Knot necklace ($150)

The knot symbol has many connections to love and loyalty. They signify a binding of two lives and interconnection between two people. They are complete loops that have no start or finish, symbolizing an eternity of loyalty, faith, friendship and love.

3- Her Favorite Kind of Rose

Let’s face it- as much as we love a dozen roses, even the freshest flowers will only last a week. That is why we love rose gold! It evokes the same warm, fuzzy feeling but we will be able to admire it for years to come.

If you love rose gold and want a piece that you can wear everyday for years to come without any worries, it is a good idea to invest in a piece of solid 14k rose gold. 14k gold has a durability that sterling silver lacks, which is important for a piece that sees a lot of wear. Additionally, the beautiful rose color extends through the whole piece, so the finish can never “wear off” like it does in plated pieces.

Left Picture: 14k Rose Gold Morganite & Diamond Ring ($1,534), Rose Gold Pink Moonstone Statement Necklace ($2,700), Two-Tone Rose & White Linked Oval Necklace with Diamonds ($1,475)
Right Picture, Bottom to Top: 14k Rose Gold Interwoven Ring ($492), 14k Rose Gold Channel Set Diamond Ring ($1,300), 14k Rose Gold Entwined Ring ($1,032), 14k Rose Gold Morganite & Diamond Ring

For the more budget-conscious or casual rose gold wearer, Pandora has an option called Pandora Rose. While not actual rose gold, it is given a rosy hue by adding copper to sterling silver. Although they will not maintain their look for as long as a true rose gold piece, Pandora Rose is a great way to add a touch of rose color to your jewelry wardrobe without investing in a 14k item.

Left Picture: Open Bangle w/Sparkling Ends ($125) styled with Pandora Rose Inspiration Within ($50), Silver Glitter Ball ($40), and Pandora Rose Beaded Heart ($40) charms. Pandora Rose Open Bangle ($200) styled with Pandora Rose Galaxy ($75) and Pandora Rose Radiant Hearts ($100) charms.

4- Give Her the Moon and Stars

You may think we are speaking metaphorically, but we are not– celestial themed jewelry is all the rage! From influencers and celebrities on your TV or favorite blog to your neighborhood trendsetter here at home, jewelry that reflects the beauty of the starry skies is everywhere. We love the idea of taking this popular trend and making it mean something special this Valentine’s Day!

Right Picture: Waxing Poetic Kristal Halo ($69) and Be the Light ($55) pendants on 28″ Silver Ensemble Charm Catcher necklace ($125)

For those of you who love to your local community as much as the far-away celestial wonders, our WinterLemon jewelry features many beautiful star-themed designs and is made locally in Bethlehem!

Right Picture: Callisto Moon Necklace ($89), Asteria Celestial Duo Diamond Necklace ($325), Selene Moon and Star Diamond Necklace ($260)

5- Be True (Blue)

Diamonds may have token the throne as the queen of stones in the today’s eye, but sapphires have a long history in the realm of romance and royalty. Long thought to symbolize truth, sincerity, nobility, and faithfulness, the sapphire stands out with its vibrant color. Like the diamond, sapphires have a high hardness and are able to stand up to heavier wear.

Left Picture- 14k Sapphire and Diamond Stud Earrings ($558)
Right Picture- 18k Two-Tone Sapphire and Diamond Pendant ($2,831)

The sapphire is making a comeback in bridal jewelry in modern times, spearheaded by the gorgeous sapphire engagement ring worn given to Princess Diana, now worn by Duchess Kate Middleton. Prefer a more vintage look? Check out our great sapphire estate pieces!

Right Picture- Estate Diamond & Sapphire Studs ($259), Estate Diamond & Sapphire Textured Band ($399), Estate Diamond & Sapphire Fleur Ring ($395)

6- Shine Bright

A great way to complement your loved one’s sparkling personality is with a piece of jewelry that shines brightly as well. While rose gold and yellow gold have been gaining popularity, bright white gold and silver bring their own special radiance.

Left Picture: Large Curb Link Statement Necklace ($1,695)
Right Picture: Double Drop Geometric Necklace ($135), Silver Bubbles Necklace ($145), White Sapphire Lined Pear Necklace ($225)

Sparkling statement and stacking rings are also a great way to bring a bit of bright silver into her life!

Right Picture: Pandora Regal Beauty ($45), Hearts of Pandora ($80), Droplets ($55) and Princess Wish ($75) with Radiant Teardrop ring ($75)

7- Get Romantic

Romance is more than a feeling that happens around Valentine’s Day- it’s a style! The romantic style often tends towards sentimental, vintage and nature-inspired themes. Pieces that go beyond the ordinary will give her those fairytale feels! We especially love the mix of modern and vintage in Sorrelli jewelry’s statement necklaces for the girl with romantic tendencies.

Left Picture: Sorrelli Precious Petals Statement Necklace ($185)
Right Picture: Freida Rothman Four Points Cocktail Ring ($165) and Starburst Oval Cocktail Ring ($165)

Sethi Couture’s True Romance and Enchanted Garden collections are the embodiment of the romantic jewelry genre. Studded with natural colored diamonds in beautiful floral and calligraphy inspired shapes, it is no wonder their pieces have become a staple on the Oscars red carpet!

Left Picture: Sethi Couture Scroll Diamond Ring ($2,400), Green Diamond Band ($1,300), Chocolate Diamond Band ($1,300)
Right Picture: Sethi Couture Enchanted Garden Briolette Drop Earrings ($2,600)

8- Stay Classic

Not everyone enjoys a romantic flourish or symbolic sentiment. Sometimes it is best to stick with the classics- there is a reason they have lasted so long! For the lady with a classic style, simple silhouettes in understated sizes and settings are a fitting choice.

Left Picture: 14k Oval Station Necklace ($1,850)
Right Picture: Pandora Sparkling Strand bracelet ($55), Open Bangle ($80) styled with Pave Lights ($70), Galaxy Spacer ($40), and Pave Sphere ($75) charms

Because classic styles withstand the changing trends, a good classic piece is an important investment. A well-loved piece that is built to withstand years of wear brings joy not only to the original wearer, but can be handed down as an heirloom.

Right Picture: Sethi Couture True Romance Diamond Studs ($2,000)

9- Here Comes the Bride

For the newly engaged, this Valentine’s Day may feel more momentous than others. The excitement of planning a life together with the one you love is something at the forefront of your mind. Acknowledging that anticipation is a wonderful way to make their Valentine’s Day extra special.

One fun idea is to fill one of her wedding day must-haves! Sorrelli is well-known for their bridal jewelry- we love their light blue pieces as a fun way to add that something blue! If you are shopping for wedding bands, our Estate Collection pieces can give her a something old that really sparkles.

Left Picture: Halcyon Stud Earrings ($45), Twinkling Thistle Necklace ($120)
Right Picture: Estate Nine Diamond Band ($1,200), Estate Leo Diamond Band ($1,200)

If you want your significant other to design their own perfect engagement ring, we are happy to help! Give us a call to set up an appointment for a custom design consultation with our owner, Gary Werkheiser. Our jewelers have made some stunning custom pieces and can work with you to find the perfect design within your budget.

If you are engagement ring shopping with a girl who likes to think outside the box, we have some great alternative bridal selections as well!

Left Picture: Sethi Couture Mahogany Diamond Ring ($4,800), Art Deco Multi-Color Diamond Band ($2,700)
Right Picture: Two-Tone 18k Yellow Diamond Halo Ring ($4,652)

10- Sweet Child of Mine

Not all Valentine’s Day gifts need to celebrate romantic love. Sometimes it is just as important for a mom or dad to give a small sentiment to remind their children that they will always be loved unconditionally. We love the messages of some of our WinterLemon Wellness collection, reminding our girls to love themselves and have confidence that they are enough.

WinterLemon Wellness Necklaces ($49)

Our Wellness Collection gemstone bracelets are also a sweet gift to tell someone that you are thinking of them. Each bracelet comes with a card that describes the properties of the gemstone- we love the idea of choosing stones that enhance feelings of peace, love, and self worth. Our side-by-side and linked love necklaces are also a fun way to celebrate the love of a mother and daughter.

Both the LOVED and cupid themed charms are accented with the bright gold of Pandora Shine. We particularly love the Arrow of Cupid Shine charm- it looks great on the choker!

Our Valentine’s Day Top Ten Favorite Gift Picks!

Valentine’s Day is almost here!  Need some gift ideas for that special someone or some fun things to hint at for yourself? We’ve made it easy this year with our top ten picks to bring the love this Valentine’s Day.  Flowers wilt within the week and chocolate gets eaten as soon as it is opened, but jewelry will let your love sparkle on all year long!

Compass Rose- Let Love Guide the Way

We love our beautiful Compass Rose necklaces and bracelets.  Not only are they elegant, but they have a lovely meaning as well.  Keep the sentiment that “Life brings us to unexpected places. Love brings us home” or choose one of our custom cards tailored to different relationships and occasions. We are particularly fond of the new two-tone necklace with rose gold for the romantic-at-heart.

Pandora Bracelets- Charm Her

Pandora is a classic choice for a memorable and meaningful gift.  Not only is it alluring, the thought that goes into choosing a charm makes it a personal experience.  We love some of the new bracelet styles that have been introduced in the past year.  Not only are they a great way to start a Pandora bracelet for someone who is new to the charm world, they are a wonderful way to give life to an old collection of charms.  The new open bangle has become one of our best-selling bracelets, and for good reason.  Not only is it easy to take on and off, but it comes with spacers to keep your charms in place and fits more naturally to your wrist than a round bracelet.  The new heart lock bracelet is also a stunning addition to the collection.

valentine's day

Love Locks Earrings ($45), Lock Your Promise Bracelet ($75), Open Bangle ($75), Shape of Love Charm (Center, $55), Key to My Heart Charm/Pendant ($75) on chain ($30)

The great thing about the curated collections that are released for Valentine’s Day is that they are designed around a common theme.  This makes it easy to add some beautiful jewelry pieces that coordinate with the charms to make a well-rounded gift!  We love the “Love Locks” pieces from this years collection.  The “You & Me” ring is also a sweet piece for a young girl.

You & Me Ring ($45)

Sorrelli Jewelry- Sparkle Your Way Into Her Heart

Does your girl love to sparkle? Sorrelli Jewelry will help her shine! Crafted with Swarovski crystals, this locally designed jewelry line (from Kutztown, PA!) makes both statement pieces and everyday gems to help your special someone get her glitter on.  Even better- until Valentine’s Day, purchases in Sorrelli Jewelry of $100 or more will receive a beautiful pair of blush stud earrings for free!

Thortiuda- Call Her Angel

Our Thortiuda pendants are a staff favorite- they are one of the pieces of jewelry we get the most compliments on!  Classic in style but unique enough to stand out in a crowd, these necklaces open to allow the chime inside to be interchanged for different colors.  Named for the Thai word for angel, the necklace is designed from traditional necklaces meant to call your guardian angel.  Each colored chime has a different meaning- choose one that best captures your sentiment for the season!

Large Rose Gold Plated Sterling Pendant w/CZ Accents ($249), Medium Rhodium Plated Sterling Pendant ($109), Small Angel Wing ($69)

Pandora Rose- For the Romantic

The vintage color of rose gold is popular with the bohemian and romantic personalities alike.  Pandora Rose, a proprietary metal blend that combines sterling silver and copper, gives the beautiful hue of rose gold without the price of a solid rose gold piece.  This year’s Valentine’s Day collection has some fun new additions in the Pandora Rose. We love the typography-inspired “I Love You” dangle charm.  Combining both silver and the Pandora Rose, it is a great way to start on a two-tone bracelet!

valentine's day

Black Leather Double Wrap Bracelet ($50), I Love You Rose Charm ($65), Rose Tumbling Hearts Charm ($80)

WinterLemon- You are my Sun, My Moon, and All My Stars

We love the celestial pieces in our locally-made WinterLemon jewelry, which are handmade from precious metals and genuine gemstones.  We think they are a stylish way to express the heavenly nature of love.  Not only do they let you show your love for your special someone, they let you show your love for you community as well be supporting a local artist!

valentine's day

Black Spinel Oxidized Sterling Moravian Star Necklace ($148), Oxidized Sterling Starburst Pendant w/Diamonds on Vermeil Rose Gold Chain ($225)

Diamonds Are Always a Good Idea

Elizabeth Taylor once said “Big girls need big diamonds”- and for good reason!  A girl may have dreams of silver and CZs, but give a woman a diamond! One of the strongest materials on earth, diamond jewelry is an investment piece made to last.  Unlike silver fashion jewelry which is not meant for everyday use and will not stand the test of time, giving a gift of gold and precious gemstones means giving a gift that can be worn for decades with the same sparkle.

White Gold and 0.10.ctw Diamond Infinity Necklace ($385), Yellow Gold and 0.30ctw Diamond Heart Necklace ($699), White Gold and 0.03ctw Diamond Heart Necklace ($245), White Gold Pave 0.14ctw Diamond Stud Earrings ($425), White Gold 0.07ctw Diamond Claddagh Ring ($575)

Alex and Ani- A Gift for the Gals

Celebrating Galentine’s Day with your girlfriends? Drop them a sweet treat with one of Alex and Ani’s new Valentine’s Day bangles! We love the new “Mon Amie” bangle as a way of celebrating friendship- it translates to “My Friend” from French.  Add a sparkling Swarovski bangle or one of the new beaded pieces in the shiny rose finish for an extra touch of sparkle!

valentine's day

Mon Amie bangle ($38), Swarovski beaded bangle ($58), Shiny Rose beaded bangle ($28)

Chase & Wonder- Humor Her

Does your special someone always tell you that one of her favorite things about you is your sense of humor?  Check out some of our fun tongue-in-cheek gifts from upstairs in Haven!  Does she always have an overflowing armful of things as she heads out the door to work or school? Get her one of our Chase & Wonder “Foxy Lady” totes!

Lock Your Promise- Pandora 2018 Valentine’s Day Collection Review

Get ready to get romantic- the Pandora Valentine’s Day mini-collection is here!  This year’s new additions include some classic styles mixed in with some colorful new additions with a whimsical style.  The new collection includes pieces in every category, including a new bracelet concept.  Check out our review below!

Charms

pandora valentine's

The centerpiece of Pandora’s Valentine’s Day collection is a selection of new charms in wide-ranging styles.  The main focuses of this year’s campaign include a beautiful lock and key motif, the encouragement to “kiss more” with kiss themed pieces, and saturated color in bright fuchsia and salmon-pink.

 

The first group of charms are bursting with color.  Many of the enamel charms have an ombre effect with graduating color from the edges to the sides.  We particularly love the new Shape of Love charm, which features a faceted rose crystal.  Included in this grouping is the new innovative spacer shaped like a heart, a new standard clip, and a new silicone grip clip.

pandora valentine's

Explosion of Love ($80), Burst of Love ($50), Two Hearts Spacer ($30), Shape of Love ($55), Burst of Love Clip ($40), Explosion of Love Clip ($40)

The next grouping is a whimsical interpretation of the idea that we should “Kiss More.”  We love the details in the emoji style Kiss charm- it has glitter cerise enamel on the lips and hearts along the edge.  The lips charm is a limited selection at the moment.

pandora valentine's

Kiss ($45), Lips ($75), Love & Kisses ($35), Kisses all Around ($55)

The last grouping appeals to the more classic style, with touches of gold accenting bright silver.  Light pink cubic zirconia give a touch of romantic color.  The lock and key symbols and the “You & Me” sentiment are used frequently throughout the Valentine’s collection- we really like the new key dangle charm with gold lock. There is also a new heart lock-shaped clip that makes a great statement as a bangle centerpiece.

pandora valentine's

Two Hearts ($75), Two Hearts w/Clear CZ ($55), Talk About Love ($35), Lock Your Promise ($65), I Love You ($50), Tree of Love ($50), Key to My Heart ($75)

There are also a few new additions in rose.  The Pandora Rose pieces in this collection are accented with a synthetic ruby.  We like the mixture of the Pandora Rose and silver letters in the Rose interpretation of the I Love You charm- it is a great way to tie together a mixed metal charm collection.

pandora valentine's

Two Hearts Rose Spacer ($40), I Love You Rose ($65)

There is one addition to the Essence collection- a beautiful fuchsia faceted crystal charm that mirrors the Shape of Love charm in the Moments collection.  The meaning behind this charm is Love- the perfect sentiment for the season.

Bracelets

pandora valentine's

One of the most exciting parts of the new Pandora Valentine’s Day collection is the addition of a new bracelet concept.  The Lock Your Promise bracelet features a new removable lock closure.  We are looking forward to seeing what other similar clasps are going to become available for this concept!

pandora valentine's

Explosion of Love Bracelet ($90), Lock Your Promise Bracelet ($75)

The Explosion of Love bracelet carries forward the bolo-style bracelet design.  We like this design because it allows the wearer to adjust the size to what is comfortable to them.  This sweet design has small pink CZ hearts studding the smooth silver cuff.

Necklaces

pandora valentine's

One of our favorite new pieces in this collection is the key-shaped Memory Locket!  Fitting 2-3 petite charms, this locket has beautiful details and a classic shape similar to the Tiffany keys collection.

There is also a lock necklace with a similar concept to the Lock Your Promise bracelet.  We love the details on the Tree of Love necklace, where two colorful enamel hearts are nestled within the tree’s branches.

To accompany the new key locket, there are four new Petite charms.  We love the lock and key together as a pair!

pandora valentine's

Earrings

Pandora continues to be very innovative in their earring designs.  We love seeing all of the new concepts that are being released and how we can customize them using the pieces we have at home! The new Two Hearts Hoops use a stud earring at the front of the ear that fits into the hoop in the back.  Use some of your other Pandora studs to change the look of the earring!

pandora valentine's

Pure Love Earrings ($65), Love Locks ($45), Two Hearts Earrings ($90)

We also adore the sweet Love Locks studs.  With the short dangle of the heart lock, they offer a little more than the traditional small stud.

Rings

pandora valentine's

On to one of our favorite categories- rings!  There are only a few additions to the rings in this year’s collection, but they are beautiful.  The open-style Two Hearts rings are great for stacking without feeling too heavy.

The Valentine’s Day Core collection pieces this year are inspired by icons of love.  Available in Rafaelian silver and Rafaelian rose gold, two Parisian inspired bangles, the Eiffel Tower and Amour, evoke the romance of the City of Lights.

The most traditional Valentine’s symbol, the heart, adorns some beautiful cuff bracelets and rings, necklace, and pull-chain bracelet.  The heart pieces are available in both sterling and gold plated sterling.

A pretty script “Amour,” French for love, is the centerpiece of a rose-gold plated necklace and pull-chain bracelet.  Similar in style to nameplate necklaces, this is a really pretty piece to show someone that they are loved!

We love the look of stacking together the rose gold plated and sterling pieces for a mixed-metal look.  Add a cuff for a little variety and you have the perfect stack!
