Valentine’s Day is less than 3 weeks away, and boyfriends, husbands and admirers all over the world have started thinking about what to get their loved one for this special day. Valentine’s Day is also the most popular day for proposals – not very original, I would say. When thinking about buying an engagement ring, you might want to think about what the different gem stones mean. All women don’t want a sparkling diamond ring, but a coloured gemstone could be a great option. But what does the different gemstones symbolise?
The emerald is believed to bring love and sensitivity, and it’s also believed to hold healing powers that can enhance memory, mental capacity and eliminate negativity.
The sapphire is a very popular choice for an engagement ring, and historically it has been associated with wisdom, joy, peace and loyalty. It’s supposed to bring the wearer fulfilment of their dreams, and enhance their beauty.
The ruby stands for love, passion, and zest for life. It’s an emotional stone and it is believed that is has healing powers and that it will protect its wearer from distress.
amethyst is the ultimate healing stone. If you are looking at amethyst rings for your loved one you should know that the amethyst is believed to have powers that can affect the human body. Sleep with an amethyst under your pillow and it will reduce your stress through its peaceful vibrations, and it will promote positive dreams. It’s also supposed to enhance wisdom, psychic abilities and intuition, and bring inner peace.
If you are wearing a citrine you will feel protected. It will increase your creativity and physical energy, and you will experience complete mental awakening. It is also believed to bring the wearer comfort and wealth.
If you are thinking of something smaller, not quite so dramatic and life changing for Valentine’s day, there is always the safe choice of earrings, perfume, sexy (but comfortable!) underwear, luxury spa treatments, chocolate and flowers, and of course a sweet Valentine’s card. I’m hoping that my dear boyfriend will get me my favourite perfume ;) As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, they have stopped making it! Although, I have found an online shop called Forget Flowers that still have it in stock. YAY! Hurry honey, and get me my Ralph Lauren HOT! (he has hinted about it already) They also stock classic fragrances such as Dolce & Gabbana, Estee Lauder, Gucci, Armani and Chanel perfume.
