Buying a Valentine’s Day gift can be a minefield regardless of whatever relationship you’re in – many guys would know how tricky it is. Get the wrong one and be prepared to be given the cold shoulder. Chocolates and red roses are all well and good, but if you really want to make an impression and show how much you care for her, you’d have to be more targeted (think of being a sniper instead of a guy with a semi-automatic).
Even a foolproof gift like jewellery, which can be an expression of love and sincerity, should be carefully selected according to where you are in the relationship now. To make buying such a gift easier, we look to Lee Hwa Jewellery’s Valentine’s Day Collection for the right pieces to celebrate four important moments in your relationship.
“I Wanna Make Her Mine” First Date
So you’ve been friends for a while but you want to be more than that. You’ve summoned up the courage to ask her out on an official date and she actually said yes. Now you’ve got to impress her. Fancy dinner aside, you’re ready to take the next step and hopefully be exclusive.
The Gift: It’s time to say “I don’t want to be friend-zoned anymore” but you’re afraid of scaring her off. Mark that seminal moment with a bracelet or necklace that is shaped into an “I love you” soundwave from Destinée’s Love’s Whisper collection and let your actions speak for your heart. Destinée diamonds adorn the necklace and bracelet, with each diamond featuring 57 precisely cut facets with eight symmetrical hearts for unrivalled fire and brilliance.
The Gift Moment: After dessert on date night. Because nothing caps off Valentine’s Day better than knowing how genuine, irreplaceable and sincere your love is.
“You’re My Special” Date
You’re a few years into a steady relationship, and you’d like to express how much she means to you, but want keep things status quo in this happy place, for now.
The Gift: As the saying goes, diamonds are forever, and they are symbolic of beauty and grace. The Forevermark Endlea collection includes rings, earrings and necklaces with bow motifs that embody a timeless sense of eternity. All are beautifully adorned with rare Forevermark diamonds (less than 1 per cent of the world’s diamonds make the cut and each is marked with a unique inscription including the Forevermark icon and identification number). She’ll immediately know she’s special.
The Gift Moment: Set the mood midway through your date and surprise her with your gift.
“Will You Marry Me” Date
You’ve found the woman to spend the rest of your life with, and you are ready to pop the question. There’s no better time to do it than on Valentine’s Day, with the perfect engagement ring in hand.
The Gift: Don’t stress out when buying a solitaire ring. Just keep in mind these quick tips and you’ll have a ring that she loves.
