Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

It’s that time of year again, Valentine’s Day is upon us and if you haven’t already bought your loved one a gift, read on to see some beautiful ideas from Shiels.

We’re big fans of love, just in case you couldn’t tell. We also think you should be celebrating love everyday but we do have a bit of a soft spot for Valentine’s Day. It’s kind of nice to have a day dedicated to all things love, don’t you think?

It might be a little early to think about it, but you don’t want to leave it until the last minute either so we thought we’d throw together a gift guide to help you out in the lead up to the big day.

Whether you’re looking for a statement gift or just something small, let us help you get inspired this Valentine’s Day.

Diamonds

You know what they say about diamonds being a girl’s best friend… Well, it’s true.

Maybe this is the day to pop the big question, or if you’re already married, it might be time to upgrade that rock. You really can’t go past a diamond ring for your better half. If you’re looking to replace something she’s wearing everyday, stick to something that will go with everything like a simple 18ct white gold ring with 1 carat of brilliant cut diamonds. If you’re looking to dazzle with a special piece for her collection, try a piece like the Yellow Gold Diamond and Natural Sapphire Ring.

Or if that commitment is still a little way off, a stunning diamond pendant or some simple diamond studs that she can wear every day won’t go astray either. Trust us, the sparkle of a diamond is incomparable.

Watches

Despite Valentine’s Day often being associated with the gift of jewellery, we’d recommend looking at a watch as well. It’s a great present for the man - or woman - in your life. Think about it - if you get a good one,  it’s a present that the person will be wearing every day for years to come. Every time they look down to check the time, they’ll think of you.

Another great thing about watches is that there’s literally something for everyone. You can’t really go wrong with a classic leather band watch for the fashion forward, modern gentleman. Something like the Citizen Eco-Drive CA4283-04L Chronograph Watch ticks all the boxes with its chocolate oxhide strap and gold finish. If he’s more of a metal band guy, opt for a wearable metal that is appropriately sized like this Jag J1960 watch.

Necklace

Necklaces are the next best jewellery piece from a ring in our opinion. They are often what a woman builds her outfit around and is the first thing someone looks at. There’s also something about it sitting on the decolletage that makes a sensual piece of jewellery, making it perfect to gift to your loved one this Valentine’s day.

If you’re after something simple that she can wear every day, opt for something the a gold pendant - that are really in and will also suit every outfit. If you’re looking for something special, why not try a gemstone in bold yet wearable colours?

Heart Shapes

And if you want to be really obvious on the day of love, why not go all out and get your better half a physical representation of your heart? From rings to necklaces - we have you sorted on the heart shape front.
