Valentine’s Day Jewellery: The Alternative to Hearts


Many people love giving jewellery for Valentine’s Day. It’s a romantic gesture full of sentiment and, if chosen correctly, it’s a lasting gift that will stand the test of time. However, for some people, romance isn’t all hearts and flowers. For many, romance is in the little things that mean more to you as a couple. If you’re looking for Valentine’s gifts that are from the heart rather than heart shaped, we have the alternative-to-hearts gift guide for you!

Secret Messages

Do you and your loved one have nicknames for each other? Or a little phrase that you use all the time? If so, you could have this engraved into a piece of jewellery but with a twist: have it engraved as a secret message!

There are several ways your local jeweller can do this for you when buying a Valentine’s gift in Hainault or Ilford: how about having the engraving written in Morse code? Or perhaps have it engraved on a spiral pendant which can only be read as you twist and turn the coil to reveal the message? Ask your local jeweller in Hainault about a bespoke secret message piece for Valentine’s Day.

Love to Stand the Test of Time

Watches may not be thought of as the most romantic piece of jewellery, however they are extremely practical and popular as gifts for both men and women. Choosing a timepiece can also show how your love will stand the test of time. You could even have a message engraved on the back of the watch face! Ask your jeweller in Ilford about watch engraving as a Valentine’s Day gift service.

Alternatively, if you have an heirloom watch that’s lost its tick, why not have this repaired for your loved one? This is a truly thoughtful gift that jewellers in Ilford can help you out with this Valentine’s Day. You could even have a watch face, or the watch mechanism, transformed into a pendant on a long chain for something completely different!

Last Minute Love

Left it a bit too late to have a piece of jewellery created just for your loved one? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! The secret to making sure that your loved one doesn’t realise you were a little last minute is to steer clear of the hearts. Too cliché. Instead, opt for something like a Russian ring or an infinity loop on a necklace. This will show that you’ve put some thought into the gift, rather than grabbing a heart piece as last minute Valentine’s Day gift.
