Aaaahhh … girlfriends . I’ve never had one (being a girl!), but I certainly know that wonderful feeling that nothing could be truly terrible in the world if there exists a person that inspires you as she (or he) does. Even in long-standing relationships, where the sleeplessness of early love has been replaced by comfort and ease, birthdays are a great little marker to let your partner know how special they are to you. If your girlfriend is born in February, keep reading for some of our favorite jewelry gifts for girlfriends born in the shortest month of the year.
The yellow gold drop amethyst earrings at the beginning of the article arte perfect for February-born girlfriends – they incorporate the birthstone for the month, and are a lovely versatile style that can be worn to work, as evening wear, or just around the house without looking out of place anywhere. Although they are called ‘drop style’, the entire length of the earring including the dangle section is only 1.9cm. Depending on the placement of her piercing, there shouldn’t much apart from the amethyst dangle section hanging down past her earlobe. A little dressy, a little casual – very easy to wear!
The Pandora range is also home to quite a few amethyst pieces – Pandora tends ot go for quite a pale amethyst color, that almost looks pink next to the deep purples that amethysts can come in. This charm is designed for Pandora bracelets or necklaces, and can just as easily go on anklets (stay tuned for more on those!). If you haven’t started a Pandora bracelet or necklace for your girlfriend yet, there’s no time like the present. They create a huge variety of easy gift ideas for future birthdays and Christmases, as well as Valentine’s Days and everyday, general “I love you” type purposes!
You can also pick gifts based on the traditions for your gal’s starsign – if she is born on or after the 18th of the month, she’s a Pisces. The traditional color for this sign is silver, their corresponding body part is the feet, and gemstone for the sign is aquamarine. Pandora is also one of the queens of silver jewelry, and this crossed rings necklace is a sweet way to express your commitment to her … without actually putting a ring on her finger! She’ll get the point, trust us. The silver chain and charm work with the traditional color for the sign, and we’re sure that the price tag will work well with your wallet.
The pearl drop necklace pictured at right is another beautiful, silvery gift for girls with Pisces as their starsign. The drop design is very elegant, but the simplicity of the style means that she’ll be able to comfortably wear it to work, and on weekends. Pearls complement sterling silver so beautifully – they really bring out the shine and luminescence in the metal. This necklace has a 42cm chain with 5cm drop, and an 8-8.5mm pearl at the end of the drop … and a very attractive price tag also
For girls born in the first half of the month, up until the 17th, their starsign is Aquarius. It is tradition to buy jewelry gifts incorporating indigo coloring or amethysts, and things to adorn the ankles for Aquarian girls. Some starsigns can wear jewelry made from their signature metal … unfortunately for Aquarians this is uranium, so perhaps not . We picked the dainty sapphire post and butterfly earrings for their rich, deep, true indigo coloring. The gemstones weigh 0.39ct combined, meaning that the earrings themselves are quite well-priced. The tiny, comfy design means she doesn’t even have to take them off for bedtime, if she’d rather not.
Aquamarines are the alternative birthstone if your girlfriend is born on or after the 18th of the month – it is the gemstone ‘belonging ‘ to Pisces. We love the aquamarine square cut stud earrings at right – just like the sapphire ones above, they are small and very comfortable, and great for everyday wear. The affordability of the stones means that these are even more budget friendly than their sapphire neighbors, though! The square cut is elegant and corporate, and great for relationships where neither of you go for the mush and sentimentality of love hearts and rainbows!
Remember that Pandora amethyst charm above? Since Aquarian women have their ankles as their signature body part, why not pop the charm on a very inexpensive, yet highly wearable, gift like the silver heart anklet at right? This is the most affordable of the Pandora anklets, which in fact are the only anklets we have in store . It is also frequently out of stock … so order with plenty of time to spare!
The body part corresponding to Pisces is the feet – and you can help show your Piscean girlfriend that you appreciate every inch of her body with the sweet ‘bunch of flowers’ Pandora toe ring at right. The plain silver design is highly affordable – this is probably the least expensive of any gift recommendation we’ve ever made! Again, watch for stocking times when you order this one.
Jewelry is the quintessential gift for girlfriends – and for good reason! If you haven’t seen anything that would tickle her fancy here, keep browsing in the specially chosen Jewelry Gifts for Girlfriends section on site.
