Say "I love you" this Valentines Day with beautiful, original British design. For over 30 years we have been advising customers as they select meaningful gifts for their loved ones. Here, we have drawn on our experience to put together this guide to some of our favourite suggestions for thoughtful Valentines gifts.
Travel back in time to 1330. The masons of York Minster completing the west window's heart-shaped traceries, must have been in awe at their creation; a magnificent window towering over the city. Over the centuries, a tradition has grown that a couple who kiss under the 'Heart of Yorkshire' window will enjoy lifelong love.
In celebration of this legend, we have created the Heart of Yorkshire jewellery collection. The latest addition to this collection is a Limited Edition of just twenty-four solid gold necklaces. We have taken the original signature silver heart pendant and recreated it, in the same size, in 9 carat gold.
Each Limited Edition pendant has been individually assayed and hallmarked as 9 carat gold, and completed with an official Assay Office date mark, indicating the year 2020. This date mark is an extra stamp, evidencing both the purity and authenticity of this very first release of the exclusive Limited Edition.
Presented in a luxurious gift box, the Limited Edition pendant is completed with an individual, numbered, certificate of authenticity.
This romantic and exclusive piece would make a stunning, and meaningful Valentines gift.
Nothing is more thoughtful than a personal piece of jewellery. Our solid sterling silver Love Letters pendants make an attentive and individual gift, spelling out just how much you think about her. Each highly polished sterling silver letter is set with that most precious of gemstones, a clear, sparkling diamond.
The solid sterling silver letters come complete on a luxurious adjustable 'rollo' chain which can be altered in length to suit. The letters can also be purchased without a chain so that you can select the initials of you and your loved one and they can be worn together. The Love Letter pendants are £75 with a chain, and £55 without a chain.
Our Lovestruck collection combines highly polished sterling silver and 18ct rose gold vermeil. The warm rose gold beautifully highlights the open heart motif that is central to these designs. In this original design, the gently curving hearts have a natural, hand-drawn feel to them, evoking a gentle, loving sentiment.
Linking the Lovestruck pendant design together is a curving infinity symbol. The infinity has a long history as a symbol of love. It represents an unbreakable bond and eternal connection between two lovers.
Open heart earrings start at £25, and pendants in the collection start at £65. The full jewellery collection can be viewed here: Lovestruck Collection.
The main element of the Entwined collection is the exquisite sterling silver mesh rope that we have used for the body of the designs. This woven mesh was chosen for its fine Italian craftsmanship. The complexity of the technique to turn solid sterling silver into a luxurious, soft and flexible tracery is masterful. The resulting smooth, flexible ribbons of silver feel like silk when worn, moving around the contours of the neck with a supple litheness, yet also providing the reassuring weight of sterling silver. Contrasting with the silver mesh ribbons, the impeccably polished central interlocking circles produce the most striking effect.
The enduring artistry, combined with simplicity of form, make these pieces continually classic. This is jewellery that has been designed to be cherished and worn again and again in the years to come.
This collection features bracelets, necklaces and earrings, all of which can be found here: Entwined Collection.
The motif of two interlocking circles is an evolution of the classic infinity symbol, with the form expressing everlasting love. Two separate 9ct gold circles meet and merge to form the interlocking symbol in this necklace. The empty space created where the two circles overlap is a representation of connection and unity; a space where two souls entwine and become one.
We offer an array of interlocking circles jewellery in both sterling silver, and 9ct gold. Our 9ct Gold Interlocking Circles Necklace is available for £150, with matching pull-through style earrings for £125.
All Azendi jewellery comes complete in a smart, branded presentation box. To complete your special gift we offer free gift wrapping, in luxurious paper and a hand-tied bow. We can also include a handwritten gift card. Simply add your gift wrap instructions in your shopping bag.
