Do you know the five love languages? They’re five different ways that people express and experience love: words of affirmation, physical touch, acts of service, quality time, and gifts. They were coined by counselor and pastor Gary Chapman, and they’ve become widely accepted in pop culture ever since.
Before you assume “gifts” are the only way to love someone on Valentine’s Day, think again! There are so many ways to get creative about expressing your affection on this holiday. Find out your partner’s love language and get them Valentine’s Day jewelry that makes them feel special and loved in their own unique way. Here’s some inspiration to get you started:
#1 Words of Affirmation: Personalize a Piece of Jewelry with an Engraving
When words mean a lot to someone, a treasured phrase that can stay with them forever is a really thoughtful gift. Start by finding a piece of jewelry that they’ll love, and then customize it with an engraving. Whether it’s your favorite way to say “I love you,” a reminder of how important they are to you, or an inside joke that you know will make them laugh whenever they look at it, this is a great gift for the partner that loves being reminded how you feel about them. Get creative by having their favorite words of affirmation etched on some beautiful Valentine’s Day jewelry.
#2 Physical Touch: Give a Touch Bracelet or Heartbeat Ring
Some people feel loved when you reach out to hold their hand, pet their cheek, or just put a hand on their shoulder. If you can’t hug your partner all day long, do the next best thing: get a touch bracelet. They usually come in pairs and sync with an app, so when you tap your matching bracelet your partner’s jewelry will vibrate to let them know you’re thinking of them.
Another option to facilitate physical touch at a distance is getting a pair of heartbeat rings. Whenever they’re craving closeness, your partner can give their ring a little tap and hear your real-time heartbeat to feel even more connected. Thanks to technology, you can give your partner physical touch on Valentine’s Day even if you can’t be together.
#3 Acts of Service: Upgrade or Repair their Jewelry
Acts of service is the love language for people who appreciate when their partners do something thoughtful for them, like taking out the trash or remembering to stock the fridge with their favorite dessert. This Valentine’s Day, take a look in your partner’s jewelry box. Do they have a watch that doesn’t keep accurate time anymore? Or a ring that doesn’t fit their finger? Instead of letting their jewelry gather dust, have it professionally repaired and restored. This gesture is a great way to show your partner that you care, and they’ll really appreciate that you went out of your way to help them rediscover their favorite jewelry.
If all of their jewelry works and fits just fine, you can always get them an upgrade instead! Update the gemstone in their engagement ring, or gold-plate their years-old chain necklace to give it some extra luster. Ticking something off your partner’s list with a thoughtful gesture is textbook “acts of service” loving.
#4 Quality Time: Custom Create a Brand New Piece of Jewelry Together
If your partner’s love language is quality time, you can share an experience together by creating a piece of jewelry from scratch. Going through the process of dreaming up a design, discussing your favorite kinds of jewelry, looking at options, and trying on different prototypes can be a creative and intimate way to spend time together. And whenever they wear their new custom piece, they’ll think of the time you spent making something beautiful (just like your relationship).
#5 Gifts: Give a Family Heirloom Jewelry Piece
When a person’s love language is gifts, it’s not because they’re materialistic — often it’s really the thought that counts. For a partner whose love language is gifts, get them something they can’t just buy in a store. Does your family have heirloom jewelry that’s been passed down for generations? Giving your partner a piece of your history is a meaningful way to show them how special they are to you. There are also all kinds of ways to tailor jewelry to your partner; if you have an heirloom ring, for example, give it a good polishing, upcycle the gemstone with a new setting, or resize it to fit your partner’s finger.
