Now and Later

Hey, it’s OK if you know that your Valentine got your gift at a discount, right?

For starters, it says that he’s a savvy guy. He takes a hint very well. He appreciates you enough to want to buy you something nice (even if he may have trouble affording it). And best of all, he knows a good deal when he sees it.

Make his wallet (and your jewelry box) happy this Valentine’s Day by sending your guy this offer:

10% off (in your cart) now and a $50 gift card e-mailed to you later.

Don’t forget to share the love! Send this link to your friends and family so they can join in on the sparkle.

Happy Friday!

February Fancies

It may come as a shock, but February isn’t all about pinks and reds. There’s another color that represents the month of February and it goes beyond Valentine’s Day. That color is purple, or what we like to refer to as amethyst.

Amethyst, February’s birthstone, is a welcome change for those who don’t love the super girly colors of V-Day, but still appreciate the romance. In fact, amethyst was actually the gem of cupid – they say St. Valentine wore it himself.

Have a loved one with a February birthday? Need a more subtle Valentine’s Day stone? Amethyst jewelry would make a marvelous gift. Check out some of our customer’s recent designs (below) for some inspiration.

Better Than Chocolate

When it comes to Valentine’s Day, why is chocolate always the go-to?

I understand that not much can top that euphoric feeling after biting into a rich, creamy piece of decadent chocolate. But what happens when it’s over? You’re left with sugar high, potential cavities, and a guilty feeling in your gut because you just broke all your New Year’s resolutions.

Well, here’s an idea that beats any box of chocolates — fine, luxurious, jewelry. Now we’re talkin’.

This Valentine’s Day you deserve more than just candy. You deserve some rock candy. Something sparkly to make you smile when you put it on each morning and feel loved when you catch a glimpse of it throughout each day.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Gemvara has announced a new collection called Timeless Hearts – an elegant assortment of rings and pendants with an edgy twist. We have also gathered up our favorite pieces to create a Valentine’s Day gift guide that is perfect for any style or price range. Take a peek at it here or on our Pinterest board.

Now, you tell us. What do you think is better than chocolate?

The Ring Before The Ring

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner we’ve got something on our minds: Promise Rings.

You can thank Joe Jonas and Robert Pattinson for this, but recently promise rings have become a popular gift. However, many people (including women) don’t even know what this ring means. We’re here to air out this allusive idea for anyone wondering – what’s with the ring, before the ring?

A promise ring is just what it sounds like, a ring given to symbolize a promise. While this is most commonly used as a precursor to an engagement, a promise ring can mean a lot of things depending on the status of your relationship.

A promise ring could say, “I will return to you,” for a lover who will be traveling or going over-seas.

It could say, “Here is my promise to replace this ring with a larger diamond someday,” for those who can’t yet afford an expensive engagement ring.

A promise ring could simply imply “I love you,” Or “You’re my best friend.”

To be very specific, the ring could be a promise to stop doing something (such as gambling, smoking or drinking.)

I am saving myself for you,” is also a common theme for those using the gift as a purity ring.

Promise rings are not for everyone, but if you feel that your relationship would benefit from this meaningful gift, then we are all for it. However, one thing is for certain: make sure you’re clear about your intentions before handing over a ring box. If not, you could be left with no girlfriend, instead of a happy one.

If you’re thinking of giving a promise ring, Valentine’s Day is a wonderful time to present this gift. Gemvara is offering free engraving until January 31st so take advantage and promise your loved one, “You will be my Valentine forever.”
