Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and you still don’t have a gift for HER?:)
If you are like me, and like to do things last minute, you can still get some pretty sweet deals on diamond jewelry both online and in stores, that will not break your bank. While the deals are not as great as on Black Friday (its pretty much impossible to beat those), there is a plentiful selection of diamond earrings, studs and pendants, as well as heart shaped diamond jewelry at 40-60% off.
Shapes she will love? Classic shapes such as round or princess cut studs are an all-time favorite for earrings, but more unique shapes such as hearts, knots, tear-drops, ribbons, and infinity loops are a wonderful option for pendants. Also, consider jewelry that combines diamonds with other pink/red color gemstones, such as rubies, sapphires, garnet, tourmaline and spinel.
