The Burning Question for February… What do you get your wife/girlfriend for Valentines Day?

Fear not, the important thing is that you don’t forget!

Sometimes it is the simplest things that are the most important, such as a quick hug when its not expected. Or a cup of coffee in bed or that most precious thing for parents – a lie in at the weekend.

You do not have to spend a fortune, red roses although gorgeous are not as nice as a bunch of spring flowers, especially if they smell wonderful. Or maybe that’s just my opinion. I was never the traditionalist. Although the red roses I have used in the images are quite beautiful, however as you can see I am contrary

I would be delighted if you wanted to give that special lady a piece of Bish Bosh Becca’s jewellery. There is quite a wide range for you to choose from. From simple single pearl pendant with a heart in silver or gold, pearl drop earrings or a pendant and earrings set to big and bold murano heart necklaces. There are also quite a few earrings with hearts.

If hearts are a bit obvious for you, then there are always the modern symbols of love, such as the love knot. An intricate knot, so that the ropes seem like one, and without beginning or end. (There are wonderful modern pearl chokers with a love knot or stylish hoop earrings on Bish Bosh Becca should you be looking)

Did you know also know that that Shells, were ancient symbols of love by cultures as diverse as the ancient Romans, Hindus,and Native Americans? Venus, Roman Goddess of love and fertility, is often depicted standing in a scallop shell, where she was created from sea foam.

Or the humble apple is a well-known and ancient symbol of love in many legends and stories. It also has various meanings attributed to it. Think of the biblical Adam and Eve, with Adam eating the forbidden apple, the fruit of knowledge, at Eve’s bidding. In this tradition, the apple represents temptation. Venus, Roman goddess of love and desire, is also often depicted holding an apple, so it can be said that the apple represents the slightly dangerous, seductive and sexual aspects of love. But that’s upto you and nothing to do with me.

Whatever you choose to show her you love her, you can be reassured that your jewellery order will be made with love and beautifully gift wrapped.
