Valentine's Day Gemstones
One of the best and most unique symbols of love are gemstones. Gemstone jewelry has become one of the most romantic gift ideas for Valentines Day, not only because gemstones are beautiful but because all gems carry with them interesting facts and meanings.
Here are our top picks for the gemstones that genuinely represent Valentine's Day:
There is no better way to celebrate the day than by showering your love with a symbol of devotion, such as a Ruby gemstone. Rubies are associated with love, passion and emotion. Their bright red to light pink hues are said to ignite feelings of courage, happiness, and commitment. This gemstone is considered the 'King of Gems'. It is believed by some that wearing a Ruby will bring good fortune. Rubies have been the prized by royalty throughout history and are available in a range of red hues.
It's the diamond, need I say more? The diamond has become one of the most iconic symbols of love, thanks to the fact that most engagement rings are now made out of this clear, sparkly gemstone. Diamonds are the hardest gem of all symbolizing the unbreakable bond between man and woman. They are appropriate for both women and men and regarded as the ultimate gift and a symbol of eternal love. The diamond is said to symbolize complete devotion for a companion. If you want to let her know that she's the one, say it with a diamond.
If a bunch of real roses doesn’t quite hit the mark, how about a piece of rose quartz jewelry to express how much you love that special someone?
Rose Quartz is a delicate and dreamy gemstone that represents anything from unconditional, platonic, romantic and motherly love. It opens the heart, inspiring self-love while attracting or renewing romantic love.
Rose Quartz is not only associated with love, but is also connected to comfort and happiness. For gem lovers out there, a Rose Quartz gemstone is an ideal gift for a new love, a longtime partner or spouse, or even yourself.
Amethyst is not only a gemstone that perfectly represents Valentine’s Day, but is also the birthstone for February. This gemstone has a powerful property to calm the mind and body; it gives the wearer the will to open one’s heart. If your valentine’s birthday is in February, then you’re lucky. The job of finding the perfect gemstone jewelry is made easier for you.
Considered the “Gem of Fire” in the ancient times, Amethyst has varying color hues of deep violet and lilac. It is also one of the most significant stones of love, as it is the gemstone of Saint Valentine - symbolizing faithful love.
Believed to be the earth’s gemstone because of its magnificent blue color, Sapphire represents truth, honesty, commitment, faithfulness and sincerity - all characteristics required of a loving and healthy relationship.
Sapphire is a prized and sacred gemstone which is connected to romantic love; it is an expression of fidelity and life-long devotion. It also signifies innocence, purity and wisdom.
Sapphires, which are usually given or worn as a pledge of love, make it the perfect gemstone that symbolizes Valentine’s Day. Because it evokes the energy of loyalty, honesty, and devotion, the Sapphire is often used in the design of engagement rings and romantic jewelry. Wearing a Sapphire gifted by a loved one signifies that the bond will be everlasting and the partners will have a deep attachment for each other.
Similar to the properties of Sapphire, Garnet is a gemstone that strengthens commitment and inspires love and devotion. It helps you calm your mind and feelings and it stimulates your passion for intimacy. This makes it an excellent stone for bringing deeper commitment to a new relationship or even revitalizing a long-term one.
As a perfect representation of Valentine’s Day, Garnet is probably the best option among the numerous red gemstones as well; it is affordable and comes in all shapes and sizes. Paired with diamonds, the Garnet can make a show-stopping piece.
There is something mystical about the Moonstone gem; and when it comes to romance, mystery and surprises are a good idea. If your goal is to surprise her by giving her something unique, present her with a Moonstone. The perfect way to tell your loved one that you love them to the moon and back.
The ethereal blue shimmer that makes this magical gem seem to glow from within, is due to an optical phenomenon called adularescence, which is caused by light bouncing off the internal structure of the stone. Moonstone is a delicate and feminine gem and is believed to influence fertility, help women during childbirth and bring good fortune, love and affection to those who wear it.
Known as the
“stone of successful love”, the Emerald is said to strengthen marriages and romantic relationships. Emeralds bring domestic bliss and loyalty to relationships, and unity to friendships.
