Think Pink for Valentine’s Day
January 22, 2009 by Yelena Jenkins
Ah, pink; the color of warmth, love, friendship and flirtation. Cheeks turn pink at the sight of a crush, and lips color ruby after a heady kiss. With so many pleasant love-related connotations, it’s no wonder pink is such a popular color for Valentine’s Day. If red has been your go-to Vday gift color in years past, consider a change to red’s flirtier, hip little sister, pink. Even jewelry comes in alluring shades of pink that range from soft pink pearls to super stylish, rock star rose gold. Play up the flirt factor this year by thinking pink – gift your Valentine with a gorgeous piece of jewelry that takes her breath away and brings out the pink in her cheeks.
A Rose By Any Other Name
Rose gold, forgotten for a while, is making a big comeback on the fashion and jewelry scene. The gorgeous pink tone of rose gold comes from the addition of copper, and can range from light pink to a fiery orange-red. White and yellow gold makes great gifts for other occasions, but Valentine’s Day calls for something special and seasonal, something…pink. Even the name is ideal for Valentine’s Day – instead of giving her a dozen roses that are marked up on February 14th, give her a piece of rose gold jewelry that will grow in value – and never wilt.
Two Pieces of Rose Gold jewelry We Love for Valentine’s Day:
1. Personalized Handwritten Rose Gold Ring (at top)
This ring makes the ultimate personalized Valentine’s Day gift. The solid 14k rose gold ring can be inscribed with your own personal message in your own handwriting. It’s like giving her a permanent love note that she will always carry around with her; the ring is such a unique, romantic gesture.
2. Rose Gold and Diamond Butterfly Ring
The abstract butterfly covered in tiny diamonds will let her know that she makes your heart flutter (hey, you can even write this in a card – we won’t hold the cheese factor against you). The soft pink hue on this gorgeous ring will look beautiful on any skin tone, and the feminine shape makes it a great girly gift. Besides, what girl can resist pink and diamonds?
The Pearl of Your Heart
Traditional ladies will love receiving pearls for Valentine’s Day. Pearls are the oldest precious gem and have been worn throughout the centuries by everyone from Cleopatra to Queen Elizabeth. A beautiful set of pink pearls makes an ideal gift for the queen in your life. They’re classic enough to be worn forever, but have just enough pop to set them apart from white pearls.
Two Pink Pearl Gifts We Love for Valentine’s Day:
1. Natural Freshwater Pink Pearl Stud Earrings
Even the most sensible woman will love a pair of pearl stud earrings. They are unfussy enough to be worn daily, go with everything from jeans to a ball gown, and match everything in a wardrobe. Plus, they are practically a steal at under $100. Gifting doesn’t get easier than these beauties.
2. Diamond, Natural Freshwater Pink Pearl and White Gold Dangle Earrings
Make no mistake – these earrings are serious jewelry. Two large pale pink pearl earrings dangle from 14k white gold fishhook posts for an elegant twist on the pearl earring. The pink pearls are placed in a white gold setting covered in tiny diamonds that sparkle as the earrings move. Simply gorgeous.
If your Valentine hates pink, relax! Apples of Gold has a plethora of beautiful Valentine’s Day options, including rare chocolate pearls (ladies love chocolate; even the inedible kind) and pretty gemstone earrings. Whatever you buy her she will love, just because it’s something special that came from you. And if she doesn’t, well, there’s plenty of other fish in the sea… we kid, we kid!
