Valentine's Day Gemstones

Valentine's Day Gemstones
Gemstones for Valentine's Day

We have all heard the origin stories about Valentine's Day, how it began in Roman times with the martyrdom of St Valentine of Rome and has grown to a multi-billion dollar industry of roses, chocolates and cards that has spread across the entire world.

It can easily be argued that Valentine's Day has been over-commercialized, places undue pressure on couples to find the perfect token of undying romantic love for each other and makes single people feel terribly alone.

However, nothing beats the feeling of giving or receiving a gift at this time of year - but what should it be?

I have the answer to all your decision-making problems with the perfect Valentine's Day gifts for everyone - husband to wife, girlfriend to boyfriend, partner to partner, father to daughter - every possible relationship, even one to give to yourself!

The answer is, of course, a gemstone. Any one of our hundreds of varieties could make an ideal gift on any occasion but I have brought together a small group of stones so you can make a quick and easy choice.

Choose any one of these 8 gemstones and I guarantee a successful evening!

The most obvious color for a Valentine's Day gemstone is, naturally, red, and my first few recommendations are the deep crimson and scarlet colors that symbolize passion, lust, desire and intense love.

Ruby

The ultimate token of love, red ruby gemstones have been lusted over by rulers and commoners alike for centuries - Chinese Emperor Kublai Khan once attempted to exchange and entire city for a pigeon blood red Burmese ruby. A guaranteed winner as a Valentine's Day gift for a man or a woman.

Pyrope Garnet

Garnets got their name from their similarity to the seed of the pomegranate fruit and the Pyrope garnets are the obvious origin with their deep crimson hues. With their spiritual influence over sexuality, potency and fertility these garnets can make a perfect give for both sexes.

Rhodolite Garnet

Shop Rhodolite Garnet here

Rhodolite is another member of the garnet family with a coloring that is just a little lighter than pyrope garnets - often a bit pinker or more purple. The name means 'rose-colored stone' and displays an excellent brilliance and fire.

Then we have pink, a more delicate and romantic color, more for puppy love or for daughters rather than wives and lovers.

Pink Tourmaline

Buy Pink Tourmaline Gemstones
Shop Pink Tourmaline here

Pink Tourmaline is a subtle pink gemstone of love and compassion, but rather than an erotic desire it is more a delicate first love or a representation of the love for a daughter or niece. This stone is also famous for its ability to help deal with a broken heart and its special connection to the Heart Chakra.

Kunzite

Buy Kunzite Gemstones
Shop Kunzite here

Pink Kunzite gemstones are fun, frivolous, eye-catching, feminine and romantic - almost the ideal Valentine's Day gift for those at the beginnings of a relationship. Reasonably priced as well as available in large, clear and bright gemstones.

Rose Quartz

Buy Rose Quartz Gemstones
Shop Rose Quartz here

Another pink gemstone is Rose Quartz which also makes a great gift but is one that you can give to yourself, a spiritual gemstone for universal and unconditional love, known to promote self-love.

The last two choices veer away from the traditional red and pink colors.

Amethyst

Buy Amethyst Gemstones
Shop Amethyst here

Amethyst has become synonymous with Valentine's Day because it is the birthstone for February. This lovely, very affordable purple or violet gemstone has become one of the most popular choices as a gift on this special day.

Emerald

Buy Emerald Gemstones
Shop Emerald here

Deep, intense green emeralds are the symbol of successful love, vitality, fertility, truth and relationships. Although this gemstone is very much loved by both sexes, it can make an optimal present for the man in your life who would prefer a more masculine color than red or pink. It brings loyalty, abundance and domestic bliss as well as looking striking and distinguished.

So there we have it, eight great gemstones which will bring a shine to your loved one's eyes and a gift that will last a lifetime. Every time it is worn or touched it will bring romantic memories flooding back.
