If you are planning to take your beauty on a fancy dinner date, go for a classic and romantic diamond necklace. As the old saying goes, diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and Valentine’s Day is no exception. The expertly cut diamonds in designer necklaces will glitter beautifully by flickering candlelight. These shimmering stones will surely delight your beloved with the most vivid details.

We love this elegant diamond necklace from New York-based designer Brevani. Crafted in 14k white gold, the piece from the Dashing Diamond collection will always stay in style, featuring dangling round-cut diamonds. This necklace is neither underwhelming nor overwhelming. It is graceful yet catches eyes wherever she may wear it.

Taking your loved one dancing is a sensational way to spend Valentine’s Day. Ideally, you should choose a comfortable piece that can quickly move as your significant other moves to the beat. Chokers are striking options for a dancing date, as they remain near the body while providing a bold sense of fashion.

This simple choker from Simon G.’s signature SG collection is an ideal selection for your Valentine this year. With a minimal design, the piece features petite, pave-set diamonds that are sure to reflect the light with every spin. Get this necklace in 18k white gold, or opt for one of their mixed metal options.

If you and your date are opting for dinner and a movie, gift her a comfortable yet captivating necklace that will twinkle as the diamonds and the precious metals subtly catch the light and colors from the movie screen. Heart necklaces are an excellent option here, as it classically expresses your emotions. Your beloved will be reminded of the occasion and the feeling you share every time she wears it.

Our experts fawn over this diamond heart necklace from Christopher Designs. Adorned with eight elegantly-cut diamonds, this piece is offered in 14k white gold, 18k white gold, and platinum to suit a wide range of price points.

Wine tasting is a wonderfully intimate way to spend time together this Valentine’s Day. Consider seeking out hues that serve as a physical reminder of the date. Maybe your sweetheart prefers a good glass of sweet red, so look into garnet and ruby jewelry. Or perhaps, she gravitates toward an exquisite Pinot Grigio, so consider yellow gold or pale yellow sapphire necklaces.

Simon G. comes through with this oval-cut ruby gemstone pendant. This accessory from the SG collection features a richly-colored ruby paired with a round-cut yellow diamond and accenting diamonds that frame the ruby. This necklace is sure to turn heads at the winery.
