We’re on the countdown to Valentine’s day and, as it does every year, the pressure to buy a great gift is mounting. But we’re currently knee deep in the January blues, holes have burned in our pockets, and our bank accounts are looking less than impressive. Buying a valentine’s gift for your loved one is hard enough already, but when working to a budget, it can be even tougher.

You’re getting super good value for something so valuable. A piece of jewellery can be treasured for a lifetime, and this wont be a one-time-wonder gift. Take a look at the most affordable Valentine's pieces here.
