The Valentine’s Day Gift Guide from Ross-Simons Jewelers

Women have been known to say they don’t want gifts for Valentine’s Day. And men have believed them. Big mistake! For those who understand the importance of the gift-giving ritual, Ross-Simons Jewelers is showcasing its 2016 Valentine’s Day Gift Guide to help consumers find the perfect present.

Cranston, RI, January 29, 2016 --( “We are so proud of this year’s well-curated Valentine’s Day collection,” states Darrell Ross, President/CEO of Ross-Simons. “Our goal is to provide our customers with high quality, fashionable jewelry at the best possible prices. After all, gift shopping should be a truly enjoyable experience.”

Browse the new Valentine’s Day Collection and discover a huge assortment of diamonds, silver, gold, gemstones and estate jewels as well as an impressive mix of designer brands. What’s more, prices are up to 75% below retail. Clearly, that’s reason enough to celebrate this special day.

The Look of Love

Way to My Heart: What could be more appropriate for Valentine’s Day than iconic heart jewelry? Both gold and sterling silver heart pendants make a lasting impression. Heart bangle bracelets, the quintessential gift for women of all ages, dangle charms of all sizes. Romance the stone with heart stud gemstone earrings in beautiful shades of red, pink or purple. And while heart motifs are certainly traditional, they can also look decidedly modern. Consider a diamond cut and polished 24kt yellow gold over sterling silver heart pendant necklace. The look is pure gold; the price is under $100!

Splurge a Little: Luxury jewelry never fails to elicit a “wow” from gift recipients. For a truly outstanding gift, indulge in a gemstone and diamond cocktail ring sporting such gorgeous stones as a sapphire, emerald, aquamarine or morganite. The bigger, the better. 18kt gold link bracelets make a huge impact – bold and substantial. Sparkling pave diamonds dazzle time and time again. Some extraordinary pieces: pave diamond doorknocker earrings; a diamond pave multi dome ring; an 11 carat diamond bangle bracelet in white gold. A girl can dream, after all.

Oldies but Goodies: Love knot jewelry reflects the eternal symbol of love and is so very appropriate for the most romantic day of the year. In fact, love knot earrings, rings and necklaces are among the top gifts for Valentine’s Day 2016. Options range from classic gold and silver to tri-colored gold to black and white diamonds. Vintage and vintage-inspired jewels such as chandelier earrings or antique dinner rings update an outfit instantly. Timeless treasures include cultured pearl necklaces, diamond teardrop earrings, gold hoop earrings and diamond bow bangle bracelets. Fortunately, the classics never go out of style.

Make it Personal: Initial jewelry is all the rage these days. What’s new and different: diamond accent personalized disc necklaces, initial stud earrings and monogrammed cutout necklaces. Other great choices: monogrammed rings, dangling earrings, diamond accent mini initial bracelets and “seven word” bangle charm bracelets. Keep in mind that Ross-Simons items are engraved free of charge. On the plus side, personalized gifts show planning and forethought, which makes the gift extra special. And if you get a great bargain in the process, even better!

The Name Game: The Ross-Simons’ Valentine’s Day boutique features a bevy of well-known designer names. Many pieces can be found under $500 and there’s a huge selection for under $100. Look for such esteemed designers as Swarovski , ALOR, Andrea Candela, Mikimoto, Roberto Coin, Zina, Belle Etoile, just to name a few. Andrea Candela turquoise jewelry is absolutely stunning; choose from a turquoise doublet ring in 18kt gold; turquoise clover earrings for a “lucky” twist or the iconic sterling silver cuff bracelet with two turquoise cabochons at each end. Zina specializes in such easy-to-wear styles as “wired” pod earrings, sterling silver link bracelets and gemstone pendant necklaces. Of course, men deserve Valentine’s gifts as well as women. Men’s bracelets from ALOR and Swarovski focus upon wearable cable styles, incorporating leather, stainless steel or crystal accents.

Trending Now: Ear crawlers are one of the hottest new trends in jewelry today. Styles run the gamut from cultured pearl crawlers to bezel set diamond crawlers to glittering tapered CZ baguette ear crawlers. Cubic zirconia jewelry, in fact, can make a dramatic impact and the price is right. Imagine a 6.8 carat CZ ring for under $50! Fringe is also a very modern fashion trend -- and not just on clothing. An Italian 14kt yellow gold fringe V-necklace looks stunning against a black sweater or dress. Wide collar necklaces are trending with celebrities on the Red Carpet this award season. Pair a gold or silver Cleopatra necklace with a simple sheath dress. In reality, the look is anything but simple.
