Bling it on
On the hunt for a special gift? Whether you're looking to splurge on your significant other or do a little shopping for your sister, mother or BFF, nothing makes more of a heartfelt statement than a shiny gem (or two).
Read on for our curated pick of watches and jewellery gift ideas for him and her:
Gifts for her
While heart-themed jewellery may feel a bit cliche for Valentine's Day, Chopard's joyful and infinitely chic Happy Hearts bangle is a timeless classic that can be worn year-round, while signifying where your heart is (literally on their sleeve). Plus, a portion of profits from this pink mother-of-pearl edition goes to charity in support fo the Naked Heart Foundation. For a bolder statement, we're eyeing Yvonne Léon's stunning 9-karat yellow gold cocktail ring. It's studded with topaz and turquoise gemstones and make for a perfect piece of treasure for vintage jewellery lovers.
For the minimalists, opt for a stylish pendant necklace (e.g. Chanel's emblematic Coco Crush piece) that can be worn both on its own and layered. But if they're on the other end of the spectrum, consider La Putri's locally handcrafted sapphire earrings or Alighieri's twisted take on pearls that's bound to turn heads (and hearts). Last but not least, nothing says "hold onto my hand and never let go" more than Omega's Constellation Aventurine––each piece is unique due to the craftsmanship of natural gemstones––that's perfect for fashion-conscious power couples (it arrives in a matching pair with the Constellation 41mm below).
Gifts for him
ICYMI, we're currently living in the renaissance of men's jewellery and if that special guy in your life deserves a little something extra to elevate his everyday look, consider a strand of classic pearls from time-tested jeweller Mateo or go for Louis Vuitton's functional locket pendant in the form of the brand's iconic travel trunks. To accessorise his hands, you can't go wrong with Bvlgari's B.Zero1 ring; Fondae's horoscope signet pieces for a more personal touch; as well as local brand Yukimoto's You & Me Bead bracelet, which is made up of clear quartz and citrine to represent endless love.
For timepieces, we're loving customised-watch retailer Mad Paris' bejewelled rendition of a pre-owned Rolex Datejust and (this one's for the LDRs) Jaeger-LeCoultre's update of their signature 'Reverso' watch, featuring the same Art Deco-style case and two dials to keep track of different time zones.
