Since its conception, Valentine’s Day has grown culturally, especially in Western countries. People are spending more on Valentine’s Day every year!

Want to know what to treat your Valentine to this year, or want to impress your partner with some V-Day knowledge! If so, take a look at some of the facts below!
- The Feast of Saint Valentine was established in the 5th century, but it wasn’t considered a day of romance until centuries later. It didn't officially become a holiday associated with love until the 1300s by English author Geoffrey Chaucer. Since then, it has been considered the day of love.
- Following the holiday’s emphasis on love, Valentine’s Day is one of the most popular days for proposals. Nearly 6 million couples get engaged on Valentine's Day.
- Even those who don’t pop the question on Valentine's Day agree that the holiday is a great time to propose. It was voted the best day of the year to propose than any other day, and 48% of Americans agree proposing on Valentine's Day is romantic.
- The ladies aren’t the only ones who agree with the previous fact! 40% of those who voted Valentine’s Day as the best day to propose were men.
- Valentine’s Day means more than just a day of love in American culture. It’s also one of the most financially prosperous holidays, as it is a $14.7 billion industry in the U.S.
- So much money is spent on Valentine’s Day, but what are people buying? The gift that people spend the most on is jewelry.
- It’s no surprise that Valentine’s Day is a huge day for the jewelry industry. Overall, people will spend $4.7 billion on jewelry for Valentine’s Day. That’s a lot!

Some girls dream up a proposal when they are little. Thinking about the endless possibilities. Some girls have notebooks, binders or even slideshows of exactly what they want, and when and where they want it.
Others don’t think about it at all. They are ready for the surprise, being taken by the moment.
Discovering your true jewelry style does not have to be difficult. It is actually a lot of fun! Plus, you may have more than one style to your jewelry. Below we have four main categories most of us fall under. They range from one extreme to the other – the practical soccer mom, to the statement making glamour queen. Do you know which one, or ones you are? Let’s get started!
The Glamour Queen
She enjoys the social scene; it gives her a reason to wear those statement pieces. Large diamond hoop earrings, 2+ carat diamond rings, layered diamond bracelets, a simple – yet sparkling diamond necklace, etc. The list can go on for her. Diamonds really are her best friend. When shopping, the more jewelry grabs her attention, the more she needs it!
The Casual Woman
With her collection, she has subtle and timeless pieces. She is not worried about making a statement, rather than making sure her jewelry gives the same laid-back vibe she lives by. Matching jewelry sets are her best friend, since they require little thought when pairing with her casual lifestyle. Pearls, soft colored gemstones and simple metal jewelry are what she is pulled towards when shopping.
The Soccer Mom
Her daily jewelry routine is probably a lot like her make-up routine – quick, consistent and simple. She loves owning jewelry that can match with just about anything, because it is versatile. Her jewelry collection likely consists of diamond or pearl studs, her wedding bands and a pendant necklace. When she shops for new jewelry, she instantly thinks of all the many ways in which she will get her use out of it – she is practical!
The Trend Setter
From mixing and matching, to wearing the newest pieces we just received – this woman knows how to lead the trends. She is not afraid to wear something unique like art, nor is she afraid to pair different shades of stones. At times she wears large statement pieces, and other times she goes for a subtle yet unique shape. She is such the fashion setter; she can bring back outdated jewelry and make it chic again. No matter what, you can count on her to know and start the latest trends for jewelry.
Now that you know the four main jewelry categories, which one or ones do you fall under? Are you a Soccer Mom during the week, and a Trend Setter during the weekend? Or are you the Casual Woman who also loves being the Glamour Queen? It’s always fun to be a little of all, too! Don't be afraid to be yourself, that is what makes jewelry shopping and wearing fun!
Are you frantically running around, trying to think of the best gift idea for the special mom in your life? Are you losing sleep at night thinking what you bought is not as great as your amazing mother/spouse/partner/friend? Whether she is a perfectly practical mom, a super soccer mom or a glamour girl, we have many jewelry items that will surely put a memorable smile on her face. Wearable timeless keepsakes really are the perfect solution, as they can be passed down from one generation to the next.
Being a mom is an ever-growing job. With each passing milestone, moms earn badges right alongside their kids. She deserves a gift continually reminding her of how much she is loved, appreciated and all the joy she brings to this world.
Essentially, there are three categories of jewelry for moms:
- Subtle jewelry
- Unique jewelry
To help you decide which to choose, think about what kind of jewelry she would appreciate the most. If you think she would wear and enjoy something emphasizing motherhood and family, a more sentimental piece would be best (i.e. birthstone bands). On the other hand, if her jewelry tends to be more on the subtle side, gift her favorite jewelry style (i.e. stud earrings). Then there is always jewelry which symbolizes her unique qualities(i.e. custom designed jewelry).
Below we have listed out six of the best gifts for ANY mom.
1 - Lockets
– These charms allow you to add pictures and/or engrave them to keep the ones she loves close to her heart. (Great for our mushy sentimental mommas!)
2 - Bracelets
– These are great for our multitasking mommas who wear many hats! With multiple sets, she can play it simple while out and about during the day, or dress it up for a fancy night out.
3 - Family jewelry
– Gift her with a birthstone representing each of her children/grandchildren, or even a baby’s footprint! No matter where she goes, or what she is doing, this sentimental mom will always have a reminder of all her family.
4 - Stackable rings
– Remind her of all the little and big ones who love her. Great for all ages. Plus, they can be worn to BBQ’s or to a night at the opera!
5 - Stud earrings
– Stud earrings, whether they are diamonds or pearls, are great for our practical moms. They are simple, yet always so elegant and beautiful. A great choice for moms on-the-go.
6 - Custom designed jewelry
– Just like your "one-of-a-kind” mom, create a piece as unique as her. She will appreciate the time and effort put into creating something as special as her love.
All of the ideas are timeless styles, perfect for passing down as heirlooms in your family.
While moms should be appreciated every day of the year, gifting jewelry is a great opportunity to show how grateful you are for everything she has done.
So, what are you waiting for? Come on by and see us, and we can help you pick out the perfect gift for your amazing momma!
At W. P. Shelton Jewelers, we design custom made jewelry lasting generation after generation. Our innovative design, attention to detail and passion for quality keeps our customers asking for more. Each customer has their own individual style preference, which is why this custom-made jewelry is such a special piece of art.
We all have some of the following in our jewelry boxes:
- jewelry passed down to us
- totally dated jewelry
- jewelry from a past relationship
- gifted jewelry that was not our style
- jewelry sitting in our jewelry box waiting to be repaired
Do not let that jewelry just sit there. Turn it into something new! Whether you have a Pinterest board filled with your ideas, or know you just need to do something new with your old jewelry – if you can dream it, we can create it!
Here are four reasons to have your jewelry custom made:
1 – You know exactly what you want.
Part of knowing exactly what you want comes from the desire to be unique and original. Take a little from one design, and a little from another design, and we make it exclusively your own. Imagine all your friends complementing your jewelry/style, and you respond "Thank you, I designed it myself!” Whether you have a passion for design, or are the type to know exactly what you like, custom designing your jewelry is the way to go for you!
2 – You are ready to update your style.
After years, and even decades of collecting jewelry, you may start to notice how your style changes. Then you begin to realize how you stop wearing a lot of the jewelry you own. Do not let it just sit there! Bring your diamonds and colored stones to us, and we will create a whole new look for your jewelry, and for you! It is amazing the difference a new setting can make for just one stone!
3 – Sentimental memories are tied to it.
For most of us, there is a story behind every piece of jewelry that has been passed down generation, after generation. After a while, jewelry can become a little dated, and the years of wear and tear take its toll on the jewelry. We take jewelry like this and either repair it, or create a new design for it. By simply placing a diamond or colored stone in a new setting, you create a new version all while keeping the sentimental meaning behind it.
4 – You went through a bad break up.
If you are not sure what to do with jewelry after a breakup, or an engagement ring/wedding band after a divorce, creating a completely new piece or pieces of jewelry with it can erase all the bad juju you had connected to it. Ever heard of reinventing yourself? Well, now would be a great time to reinvent that jewelry! Give it a new beginning, you deserve it!
Custom-made jewelry is a wonderful treat that anyone is capable of having, and the future generations will surely appreciate the reminder of their loved ones.
