While the aisles at every store become flooded with heart shaped boxes of assorted chocolate, long stemmed silk roses and just about anything and everything pink and red you can imagine this time of year, we like to focus on the deeper sentiment of Valentine’s Day traditions, with items that last a lifetime, and well, truly make the heart sing.
From classic heart shaped pieces to diamonds that are not of the engagement ring variety (but definitely just as stunning), thoughtfully selected jewelry given to your love, on this day about love, makes perfect sense for commemorating Valentine’s Day.
And while the origins of this love-filled holiday are shrouded in mystery, it is certain that St. Valentine himself was a heroic and most certainly romantic figure and we’re quite sure he would approve of the following selection.
