Valentine’s Day. Few days create the love...and anxiety...that Valentine’s Day does. Where does this anxiety come from? Usually from trying to find the perfect gift, especially if you’re looking to give that special someone a new piece of jewelry. Should you get a ring? Should you find something smaller?

Let us show you some pieces you should consider. Then, we’ll throw in some cute Valentine’s proposal tips and jewelry ideas that are sure to get a “yes”!

Gifts Your Beloved Will Enjoy All Year Long

The type of Valentine’s Day jewelry you gift this year will depend on your relationship with the giftee, their taste, and your budget.

From helping you select the Valentine’s Day jewelry gift to providing you with a free gift box, we at Pompeii3 have got you covered!

Diamond Earrings

Diamond earrings are the perfect piece of Valentine's Day jewelry to give when you’re just starting a new relationship. It shows that you’re committed, yet they give you a lot of room to grow into gifting larger and more significant pieces in the future. Of course, if you’re someone just looking for that perfect Galentine’s Day gift, this is a great option for you too. Check out some of these options:

  • Hoops: Hoop earrings are versatile, and the recipient can usually wear them in either fancy or casual settings. They’re a great choice for an easy but thoughtful gift.
  • Studs: Diamond studs are the classic earrings that every woman loves. A perfect match for her favorite black dress, you can be sure that a pair of diamond studs will never go out of style. Pro Tip: Single diamond studs are also a great gift for men who love a little icing!
  • Halo style: The halo style is a fresher, newer version of the standard diamond stud earring. Surrounding each diamond solitaire is a halo of smaller stones, increasing the fire and scintillation of the entire Valentine’s Day jewelry piece.
  • Dangles: Fun and flirty, dangles are usually the most casual of the different styles of earrings. They’re the perfect choice for a newer relationship that you’re hoping grows into something more.

Diamond Pendants

When you’re attempting to find the perfect Valentine's Day jewelry for a cute proposal, don’t buy anything until you check out our selection of diamond necklaces and pendants. Pendants often have more sentimental value than a pair of earrings and can often be more meaningful, depending on the design. There are several perfect options to choose from, including:

  • Hearts: Although a heart pendant may seem a bit too obvious, it’s still an excellent choice. If you like the idea but want something more unique, consider a pendant cast in rose gold. The romantic color is sure to stun!
  • Crosses: Although a cross pendant isn’t for everyone, she may find great significance and comfort in the symbol of Christianity. For some, it is a cherished gift that can last a lifetime.
  • Past, Present, and Future: Three stone pendants are especially noteworthy as a timely piece of Valentine's Day jewelry because of the meaning of the stones. Each diamond, stacked on top of one another, represents either the past, present, or future of your relationship together.
  • Journey Pendants: Show your beloved that you’ll always be there through all of life’s ups and downs when you choose a journey pendant. These pendants feature a vertical series of diamonds, each larger than the last, to represent your growing love.

Tennis Bracelets

If you’re in a longer-term relationship, but neither of you has any ideas for a Valentine’s Day proposal just yet, a tennis bracelet is a perfect option. These classic pieces are worthy choices for a couple that is committed but isn’t ready for an engagement ring at the moment. There are two popular styles of tennis bracelets:

  • Diamond tennis bracelets: A diamond tennis bracelet is a perfect row of diamonds that encircle the wrist. They are just the ticket for any occasion and have a definite “wow” factor. If you’re looking for a unique twist on the classic diamond tennis bracelet, consider a bracelet that incorporates either black or blue diamonds (Pompeii3 carries them, and they’re amazing!).
  • Gemstone tennis bracelets: If you want the dazzle of a diamond tennis bracelet but your budget is a bit more modest, take a look at some gemstone tennis bracelets. They can be just as stunning and are a popular Valentine's Day jewelry choice.

Engagement Rings

Now, for those who are serious about how to do a cute Valentine's proposal, it’s time to consider your options for engagement rings. Pompeii3 carries an extensive selection of diamond engagement rings that are perfect for every taste and budget. We even offer our conflict-free, lab-created diamonds that feature the exact same impressive sparkle and shine at a fraction of the cost of traditionally mined diamonds. Here are some of the most popular trends in engagement jewelry:

  • Solitaire: If she loves classic simplicity that shines, we recommend a solitaire. This Valentine’s Day jewelry style features a single diamond that stands front and center, reminding her that she’s the only one for you.
  • Vintage-Inspired: For a woman who has always dreamed of being a princess, a vintage ring is the perfect match. These engagement rings have delicate details adorning the band and unique diamond cuts.
  • Halo: With a vintage feel that’s similar to halo studs, these engagement rings include a larger center diamond surrounded by even more stones.

Experience the Elegance of Pearls

Often overlooked, pearls are a timeless choice for Valentine's Day jewelry. Their understated elegance makes them perfect for any occasion, from a romantic dinner to a casual day out. A pearl necklace or bracelet can symbolize purity and beauty in your relationship. For a modern twist, consider baroque pearls, known for their unique shapes and lustrous sheen, which can add a contemporary edge to this classic gem.

Create Lasting Memories with Custom Jewelry

Valentine’s Day is the ideal opportunity to give a gift that speaks volumes about your unique relationship. Custom Valentine’s Day jewelry offers a personalized touch that standard gifts lack. Imagine presenting a pendant or cute Valentine’s proposal ring that features a design element significant to your relationship, such as the coordinates of where you first met or a symbol that represents a shared interest. Custom pieces not only demonstrate thoughtfulness but also become cherished heirlooms that tell your love story for generations.

Valentine’s Day Proposal Tips

If you’re considering a proposal this February 14th, we don’t just want to help you find the perfect ring. We also want to give you some unique cute Valentine's proposal and jewelry ideas as well! Avoid the common cliches and make it a moment to remember forever with the following tips.

Go Back to Where It All Started

Think back to that moment you first saw her. Where were you? Perhaps it was from across a crowded dance floor or as you walked into the restaurant on your blind date. How about the moment you fell in love? Maybe it was right away or after months of friendship.

To make this proposal special, take her to a place that has meaning to you both. Whether it was a quiet park or a packed stadium, returning to that place will bring your past, present, and future together in a moment of celebration. Make it fun by setting up a Valentine’s Day jewelry scavenger hunt that ends where it all began.

If possible, grab a souvenir to commemorate the day and display it at your wedding. If it’s big enough, use it as your guest book and have friends and family sign it!

Head Out on an Adventure

One of the best things about being together is enjoying new experiences as a couple. Show her how much you love spending time with her by going on an adventure that ends with a romantic, cute proposal and Valentine’s Day jewelry.

For example, if you’re both outdoorsy, spend the day exploring nature. Go for a long hike in the mountains or forest and once you get to your destination, pop the question. If you live in an area where it snows, go for a walk and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere freshly fallen snow creates. Build a snowman and snowwoman and put the Valentine’s Day jewelry on the branch of the snowwoman's hand. If you live in a warmer climate, schedule a hot air balloon ride for just the two of you. Wait until you’re in the clouds to drop on one knee. Finally, go geocaching and make the ring the prize at the end!

No matter what you do, you’ll be creating memories that will kickstart a lifetime of happiness.

A New Take on Tradition

Sometimes, the classics really do stand the test of time. That’s true for the usual Valentine’s Day gifts of flowers and candy, too. However, don’t be afraid to put your own twist on things.

Use candy conversation hearts. Many brands have the popular “marry me” heart as part of their mix, and giving her a box filled with them (and the ring at the bottom of the box!) is a unique and cute Valentine's proposal idea.

Go all out and fill her house with different kinds of flowers while you send her to a massage or the spa. When she comes home, seize the moment and pop the question with Valentine’s Day jewelry.

Making the Moment Memorable

While the focus often lies on the engagement ring or the piece of Valentine’s Day jewelry itself, the way you present it can make all the difference. Think of creative ways to give your gift. For example, you could create a treasure hunt with clues leading to the piece or place it inside a larger, unexpected gift box to add an element of surprise. You could also coincide the gift-giving with a special moment, such as a beautiful sunset or during a romantic meal.

Celebrating Every Kind of Love

Remember, Valentine's Day is not just for romantic partners. It's a day to celebrate all forms of love. Perhaps there’s a family member or a friend who has been your rock – consider showing your appreciation with a thoughtful piece of Valentine’s Day jewelry. Simple bracelets, birthstone rings, or a pair of elegant cufflinks can be a wonderful way to express gratitude and love to those who have been there for you.
