Wives are a vital part of the world (although of course, they wouldn’t be wives without a husband there by their sides ) … kicking you out of bed in the morning, giving you a reason to get out of bed on the weekend and go tinker in the garage, and occasionally bringing you a beer and a sandwich. All the essentials of life! They also have a tendency to do more of the sandwich-and-beer-bringing, and slightly less kicking out of bed, when they’ve been treated with a gorgeous birthday gift ! If your wife has a birthday coming up this February, we’ve got a guiding light through that dark maze of presents, with kettles, bowling balls and aprons lurking in the corners, and perhaps some treasure at the end of the tunnel!
If your wife has a February birthday, she will either be a rebellious, unconventional, different-just-because Aquarian (born from the 1st to the 20th), or an artistic, spiritual and mystical Piscean (born from the 21st onwards). The red pearl earrings shown at the beginning of the article are perfect for Aquarians, with their unusual choice of gemstone, both in its color and shaping. The style is quite classical, though – a refreshing counterpoint to the very modern feature gem! The red pearls are set on 14ct yellow gold, and the earrings are made with hook style fittings for a freer feeling; something that all Aquarians will appreciate.
There are also plenty of other matching jewelry pieces for these earrings to be found in the Pandora range. Some are sweet but quite standard, but your unconventional Aquarian should love the flower design ring shown at right. This should remind Aquarians of the beauty of nature, making a nymph-like goddess of your flower-encrusted Mrs! Much more exciting than an apron, surely
Actually, pearls offer plenty of opportunity for individuality, as traditional as they can sometimes seem. There is no doubt that the golden canary earrings at right are stunningly individual – yet they are also super-simple and very wallet-friendly! Currently these are less than the price of a meal at a decent restaurant, and guaranteed to thrill. They are a large 8.5mm size, and set on sterling silver for cost-effectiveness.
If you have a dreamy Piscean wife on the other hand, you probably often have to pull her out of a daydream simply to get HER to eat … let alone bring you something ! The Citizen Swarovski Crystal Watch at right will not only help her keep track of when it is time for important things (like work, breakfast and dinner dates) but has a gorgeous mother-of-pearl face that makes it look like the mystical moon itself, something that Pisceans identify with. The watch actually has three interchangeable bezels, so she can look the exact way she feels on any given day, and has the convenience of a push button buckle and Citizen’s Eco-Drive technology, which means that neither batteries nor winding are needed.
Your Aquarian wife will be in just as much need of a watch – but for different reasons! These unconventional women are friendly and relationship-oriented, and will have dates to keep with friends, workmates and family. They’ll also want something that really stands out from the crowd, and Michael Kors takes care of this area of watch style nicely! Try the ‘Stitch’ style Ladies stainless steel watch by Michael Kors, looking like the band panels have been neatly sewn together with stainless steel thread! It has a simple two hand display, and quartz movement for pinpoint accuracy … as long as she remembers to look at it! Or for something with a bit more color, the crystal-layered brickwork watch is made from faux tortoiseshell, and also features quartz movement and a two year manufacturer’s warranty.
For Pisceans born in February, while aquamarine is not technically their birthstone, it is a gem strongly associated with the light, ethereal dreaminess of Pisces in general! This aquamarine pendant has a lovely nurturing attachment, with the yellow gold cradling the 1.15ct aquamarine gently in its folded arms … aww! The pendant is sold as a stand alone item, so you can choose to give whatever chain you think will suit it best – or give it as an interchange pendant for an existing chain.
The aquamarine pendant is so budget-friendly, that you might even want to give a secondary gift … I’m sure your wife wouldn’t quibble! Amethyst is the birthstone for February, for both Aquarians and Pisceans, and these deep and mysterious amethyst earrings are a great choice for Pisceans. The stones are impressive 6mm by 8mm oval cut gems, and are set in white gold, to be suitable for all skin types. In fact, even if you’d like to start saving for Christmas now, they can be put on lay-by for less than the cost of take-away lunch once a week!
