Ditch the conventional roses and chocolate this year… you can do one better. Jewellery really is the modern day love letter, and you have the opportunity to buy your partner something truly special. If someone bought me a box of chocolates this Valentine’s Day, then they’d be gone in less than 10 minutes. Okay, more like 5 minutes, but that’s besides the point! If my loved one bought me a piece of jewellery, however, it would stay with me forever.
You do have to be careful when buying jewellery as a Valentine's Day gift. Sometimes, gifting a ring can be quite misleading. Is it THE ring? Is it a promise ring? Or is it merely a fashion piece to add to your collection? Unless you’re planning on a romantic Valentine’s proposal, it’s probably safer to air on the side of caution this year. Instead, buy your loved one a necklace that they can wear on an everyday basis, and this will keep you close to their heart no matter where they are or what they are doing.
Show your partner how much you value them this Valentine's Day. It's not about the amount of money you spend on something, it's about the thought that goes into buying it. We have a stunning collection of necklaces on offer that truly say "I Love You".

5. Gold Plated Charms
Katie Mullally's jewellery is worn by the likes of Dua Lipa, and can be worn by your partner too. Elegant, sophisticated and trendy are words that come to mind when I see the collection. The Yes/No charm makes me reminisce on the "he loves me, he loves me not" phrase in childhood. This is the perfect piece for the woman or man with a bit of an edge, and will capture everyone's attention. Alternatively, the Irish 6 Pence Coin necklace has a horse on one side and an Irish harp on the other. These pieces are British made, and are sophisticated and elegant, at the same time as being stylish and playful.
6. Little Heart Of Mine Necklace
Valentine's Day doesn't have to be full of grand gestures and huge bouquets. There are many different types of people out there, and your partner may be one to keep it lowkey. If they enjoy understated and simplistic jewellery, then this Little Heart Of Mine Necklace is the one for them. It is minimalistic and dainty, and does not need to be large and in charge to make an impact.

Go from Valentine's breakfast in bed, to a relaxing walk in the park, to a swanky restaurant, and this necklace will adorn them throughout.
