Sure enough, it’s that time again – the New Year has begun (both Western and Chinese – what’s up, roosters!), you’ve received all your tax forms (right?), Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, and we’re getting our confusing February-in-Chicago weather. Valentine’s Day is upon us!
Don’t worry – it’s completely normal if you’re still scrambling for a gift! (3 out of 3 Sparkles employees are a little behind on that count ourselves…) With that thought in mind, we wanted to show you some of our favorite options that you can still grab in plenty of time for Valentine’s Day! Plus we’re having a sale in honor of cupid’s holiday (ends 2/14 when we close at 6:30pm) so you can save money when you pick up something shiny for your sweetie!
First off is a diamond ring with real rustic appeal. The shank is made of 14k white gold and features a delicate wood texture. The gray diamond is faceted in an unusual domed cut and lends a unique vibe to this gorgeous piece. It’s also a tremendous value for the current sale price, which has been reduced from $650 to $325! If your Special Sparkle loves camping, crafts, and constellations, this just might be the perfect ring!
We also recommend these fun and modern triangle diamond studs in 14k white gold. If your loved one is classic with a little twist, these are a great choice. They’re super versatile, comfortable to wear, and elegantly crafted. Formerly $650, these earrings are also on sale for $325.
On the more colorful side, we love this pair of garnet dangles. The warm tone of the 14k rose gold lends a special glow to the wine-hued garnets. The bezel setting keeps the stones secure while giving a nice contemporary shape, and they also have great movement to them. If you’re looking for a romantic, valentine’s-themed piece without being too overtly floral or heart-shaped, we suggest these earrings! 50% off of $465 brings the price down to $232.50.
Feeling a little more fancy? Make a real impression with this heirloom-quality stunner. This 14k white gold and diamond pendant is a meticulously-set contemporary piece with gorgeous vintage flourishes like milgrain details and Art Nouveau curves. A 25% reduction in price gives you this beauty for $697.50.
Now, don’t think that Valentine’s Day is just a holiday for the ladies in your life! Just today, a client making a purchase for his partner mentioned his secret hope that he’d be gifted with a new watch. Watches make stellar Valentine’s gifts, as they’re inherently practical but also endlessly stylish. Also, there’s no need to limit oneself to only one. We offer a great range here, from casual to uber-cool, from traditional to high-tech – and our entire line of Citizen watches are 30% off!
This atomic time-keeping model, after 30% off, is $402.50. Come in to view our many options!
Lastly, for the serious romantics, we offer a 14k rose gold and diamond heart pendant. This dainty and delicate size makes it great for daily wear, for layering, and for dressing up or down. This sweetheart is on sale for $382.50.
If you like these suggestions or if you’d like to see something a little more personalized, be sure to stop in between now and Tuesday evening. We’re open Sunday 11am-5pm and Tuesday 11am-6:30pm.
Also, we have candy.
Hugs, kisses, and see you soon!
Love, the Women of Sparkles
