Do you know the Valentine’s story? There are many versions and various beliefs about why it is called St Valentine’s Day but this is the most popular belief about St. Valentine.
Many believe he was a priest from Rome in the third century. Emperor Claudius II had banned marriage because he thought married men were bad soldiers (very sad). Valentine thought this was unfair, so he broke the rules and arranged marriages in secret. When Claudius found out, Valentine was sentenced to death and thrown in jail. There, he fell in love with the jailor’s blind daughter. When he was taken to be killed on 14th February he sent her a love letter signed “From your Valentine”. A sad story but you can see how romance has blossomed from this tale!?
We are very lucky as jewellery designers to see love being celebrated almost every day and so as you can imagine, we are huge romantics and love Valentine’s Day for this reason. Jewellery in itself is a celebration of love. It’s a celebration of couples, of families, of friendships. It tells stories between people and creates memories to wear every single day.
If you’re struggling with a gift for Valentine’s Day, we would suggest a bespoke piece of jewellery. Twist your tale of love into the perfect adornment for your loved one.
A traditional heart shaped pendant is a winner, even some diamond earrings, but why not go one step further and gift them a Bespoke Jewellery Design Experience?
You and your loved one can come in to our Derbyshire boutique, sip champagne and discuss the gemstones, metals and designs that express the passion in your relationship. A unique experience that you will remember forever.
