How to Pick the Perfect Piece of Jewelry for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner!  If you have someone special in your life but haven’t picked out an appropriate gift, what are you waiting for?  Don’t be a chump and wait until last minute. You’ll miss the shipping deadlines and end up being that guy, navigating the gas station on Valentine’s Eve trying to find a gift that doesn’t say, “I’m sorry, I forgot.”

Our featured jeweler is Alaska Jewelry; founded in 1990, Alaska Jewelry has one of the best selections of natural Alexandrite, which is going to be huge in 2016. They specialize in Natural Gold Nugget jewelry, Gold in Quartz, Motion rings, and even unique men’s rings (if you’re looking for a little something for yourself).  We love their vast selection of unusual yet stylish jewelry, and vouch for their amazing customer service and fast shipping.

Below are three examples that we picked out for the special lady in your life.

Gold Nugget Jewelry

Whether she’s ‘The One,’ or ‘Someone Special,’ you know there is no one quite like her.  Show her that you care with a golden nugget; a naturally occurring fragment of gold that is hand panned and reminiscent of the Gold rush era.  Depending on how long you have been together, you can choose from a watch or bangle (for the 6-month, first Valentine’s Day couple), or a golden nugget ring (for the one year, but I’m not proposing crowd).

If in doubt, go with a timeless piece, such as a watch that can be worn on special occasions.  Valentine’s Day is all about romance; you can save the everyday pieces for her birthday or Christmas.View the collection here: Gold Nugget Jewelry

Gold in Quartz Jewelry

Another unusual and fantastic option for Valentine’s Day is gold in quartz; combing the beauty of natural quartz and the allure of gold, and Alaska Jewelry carries the largest collection of gold in quartz you’ll find online.  We love these elegant and unique rings that are a great anniversary present, or a trendy and off-beat wedding ring, with matching his and her designs.  If you are looking for that truly one-of-a-kind ring, then one of Alaska Jewelry’s gold in quartz options is sure to be an awesome conversation starter.

A great way to decide which metal to mount your stone on is to look at what jewelry she currently wears.  If she wears silver, platinum, or white gold, then choose a similar band.  If she wears rose gold or gold, then go with a classic gold band with gold in quartz.  It will look spectacular.View the collection here: Gold in Quartz Jewelry

Alexandrite Jewelry

Alexandrite is a natural stone often associated with the month of June, but is trending for Valentine’s Day thanks to its incredible color and allure.  Unlike other stones, Alexandrite changes color, and is often said to be an ‘emerald by day, ruby by night,’ making it a truly unique stone.  Alaska Jewelry is the Alexandrite expert. The company crafts it into rings, pendants, and everything else you can think of; all you have to do is find the right one for your lover.

She doesn’t have to be born in June to appreciate Alexandrite, but you can choose a birthstone as a great way to customize your gift.  This shows her that you care.  Plus, birthstone rings aren’t as easy to confuse for a proposal, but a great way to gift something you know she will want to wear.View the collection here: Alexandrite Jewelry
