There are few gifts that say “I love you” better than diamonds. After all, diamonds are forever; and so is your love. But if you’re not sure diamonds are the way to go (maybe you’re in a new relationship and you don’t want to scare her off by moving too fast, or maybe you don’t think you have enough dough to get her a stone that will adequately express the depth of your feelings for her) then here are just a few reasons to quell those nagging doubts and go ahead with a diamond purchase for Valentine’s Day.
For one thing, you CANNOT go wrong with a gift of diamonds. Women love diamonds. It doesn’t matter if they’re diamond studs, a pendant, a tennis bracelet, or a full diamond necklace. Whatever you give her, she’s sure to see it as a declaration of love, regardless of size. Just the fact that you went to the effort and expense to buy her a beautiful piece of jewelry says a lot about your feelings for her. Of course, you can always go the extra mile and get a diamond ring, but you’d better be prepared to follow through on the implied offer behind it!
If you’re new to the relationship or you don’t have a lot of cash on hand, go for a simple pair of diamond studs or a small pendant. By choosing a smaller stone, you’re saying that you like her enough to get her something special, but you’re not demanding that she reciprocate in some way (you know…). This way she’ll view you as sweet instead of sleazy or pushy. Of course, if you’ve been together for a while and you do have the money for something larger, don’t hesitate to go all out. Once you’re past the initial uncertainty of a new relationship, you can make a bigger gesture without her wondering about your motives.
If you’re not sure about style, go for a heart. You can either get a stone that’s cut in the shape of a heart or you can choose a heart-shaped setting that’s diamond studded (or encrusted). This is the perfect accessory to present her with on Valentine’s Day. After all, it’s an apt representation (and a constant reminder) of the love that drove you to buy her such a timeless gift in the first place.
