Think back on the last time you gave your sweetheart a beautiful piece of jewelry. Was it an engagement or wedding ring many years ago? Imagine the surprise and delight on your sweetheart’s face when you surprise her with a unique piece of jewelry on another occasion.
Not sure when to buy her that sparkling diamond bracelet or that gleaming opal necklace? Consider these occasions.
Christians believe that giving gifts to others is a reminder of the wise men who gave gifts to the baby Jesus. However, people of all religions enjoy the gift giving tradition, using it as a time to show love for family members and friends.
You can show love to your sweetheart by buying her a beautiful pair of Christmas earrings. She’ll think of you every time she wears them.
If you celebrate Hanukkah, you may know that giving gifts wasn’t originally part of the holiday. Because of the influence of Christmas, many Jewish families now give gifts during the eight days of Hanukkah. If giving gifts is part of your family tradition, consider giving your sweetheart a glittering bracelet or anklet.
- New Year’s Eve
What better symbol of a new beginning than a valuable necklace, ring, or hairpiece? Giving your sweetheart jewelry for the New Year shows your renewed commitment to her, this year and for all the years to come. It’s also a great gift to present as you’re enjoying a romantic evening together ringing in the New Year.
- Valentine’s Day
Valentine’s Day evolved from Lupercalia, a Roman fertility festival on February 15. It was later changed to a Christian feast day on February 14 and named St. Valentine’s Day. It’s unclear who St. Valentine was. One legend says that he performed secret marriage ceremonies for soldiers. Another says that he wrote the first love letter signed “from your Valentine.” In any case, today, Valentine’s Day is a holiday designated to celebrate love.
It is a wonderful time to remind your sweetheart how much you love her. Buy her a beautiful necklace that she can wear for a night out with you.
- National Jewel Day (March 13)
You probably haven’t heard of this holiday, a day designated to give and receive jewelry. It gives you a great reason to surprise your sweetheart with a dazzling new gem ring or pendant. Since it’s not as well-known as Valentine’s Day or Christmas, you might avoid inflated jewelry prices or sold-out items.
At Easter, we celebrate new beginnings. Many families hide baskets of candies and toys for their children. Why not surprise your wife with an Easter gift as well? Welcome in spring by surprising your sweetheart with a colorful necklace or earrings.
- Mother’s Day
If you have children, Mother’s Day is a good opportunity to honor your sweetheart’s role as the mother of your children. You could celebrate her dedication and sacrifice by giving her a piece of jewelry engraved with the names of your children.
Your sweetheart’s birthday gives you the perfect opportunity to surprise her with her birthstone. She’ll delight in such a personalized gift.
Select a stunning piece of jewelry to commemorate your wedding day. Pay special attention to particular anniversaries:
- 25 years = Silver Anniversary
- 50 years = Golden Anniversary
- 60 years = Diamond Anniversary
These anniversary designations are a long-standing tradition. In the Holy Roman Empire, husbands gave wives a silver wreath for their 25th anniversary and a gold wreath for their 50th. Selecting jewelry based on the particular anniversary makes the day all the more memorable. You could purchase a silver bracelet for your silver anniversary, a gold watch for your golden anniversary, or a diamond ring for your diamond anniversary.
Don’t forget about these anniversaries as well:
- The anniversary of your first date
- The anniversary of your first kiss
- The anniversary of becoming engaged
Remembering one of these other anniversaries will show your sweetheart how much you care about her.
- Just Because
You don’t necessarily need a reason to surprise your sweetheart with a gorgeous piece of jewelry. Show her how special she truly is by choosing a unique piece of jewelry any time of the year.
The best place to get personalized jewelry is at a pawn shop. There, you’ll find rare treasures that are truly unique from anything you’ll find at a jewelry store. Each piece of jewelry is a valuable antique with many years of history behind it. A pawnbroker has the experience to know exactly what the item is worth. He or she can help you select the right piece of jewelry for your sweetheart’s style and taste.
