For over 500 years, the 14th of February has been celebrated around the world as Valentine’s Day. Despite its origins as a Christian feast day (it is still observed in Anglican and Lutheran calendars), it’s hard to ignore the commercial celebration of romance and romantic love that the day has become. Commercial or not, jewellery always makes for great Valentine’s day gift ideas.
Valentine’s Day is also one of the most popular days of the year for people to ask their partners for their hand in marriage.

We’ve got an amazing selection of jewellery to tide you over until the time is right, and we’re listing our top 12 jewellery gift ideas below.
