Love is in the Air

They say “love is in the air” at this time of year, but with the weather in Canada this February, we don’t suggest you rely on the air to heat up your 2018 Valentine’s Day.

Now don’t get me wrong… we don’t think you need to spend a lot of money to make your Valentine’s Day special. A handmade card is just as good as a diamond eternity bracelet if it’s composed with love. Nothing says I love you better than a thoughtful gift from your significant other, whatever form that takes.


If you’re looking to add a little sparkle to your Valentine’s Day this year, here are our Studio1098 Staff Picks:

Liz: Cupid likes red, and Liz picked our rose gold pendant featuring a flaming red spinel surrounded by diamonds as her Valentine’s Day Staff Pick. She chose this piece because of its eye-catching colour combination. Liz said: “I love this eye-catching necklace. It is such a perfect colour pairing, especially for Valentine’s Day! With all of it’s sparkle and shine, it will definitely become an everyday essential for all outfits!”

Zinnia: Zinnia chose a sterling silver heart pendant with a heart cut-out as her Valentine’s Day choice because it can be personalized with hand-stamped initials. Zinnia says: “This budget-friendly necklace is really versatile because you can stamp your initials on it to add a bit of personalization, or keep it simple. Also the heart opening adds an extra fun element to the pendant.”

Kyla: Kyla got engaged last year on Valentine’s Day, so her mind naturally turned to Valentine’s Day proposals. For her pick, Kyla chose a sweet plum coloured sapphire engagement ring with a bit of sparkle down the side. “What better way to celebrate a day about love than to propose to your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day?” said Kyla. “It’s an extra special day for me since I got engaged on V-Day! With it’s luscious, deep colour and sparkle of diamonds, this exquisite 14K white gold and purple sapphire ring will ensure your lady love will stand out from the crowd.”

Ali: When Ali turned her mind to Valentine’s Day jewellery, she thought of her husband Dan, and picked out a pair of our sterling silver cufflinks that can be personalized by burning your initials into a piece of wood the way sweethearts used to carve their initials into trees. Ali says: “Bright and shiny pieces are fabulous, but sometimes you just need sentimental and mushy. Carving your initials into a tree could get you into trouble, but these cufflinks won’t! They’re a great way to express your love or just be thoughtful”

Shelley: Shelley chose a romantic tanzanite necklace as her pick for Valentine’s 2018. Shelley says: “Few things are more classically cool than a gemstone pendant, and I’m particularly in love with this one. Something about the vibrant purple cushion-cut tanzanite, and the glittering white diamonds just speak to me. Whether worn to add that little bit of elegance to a t-shirt and jeans, or as part of an evening ensemble, this necklace really goes from day to night. The lucky lady to receive this will never want to take it off!”

Tamara: Tamara had a lot of trouble making up her mind this Valentine’s Day, but eventually decided her pick is our “Key to My Heart” pendant. Tamara says: “I like the clear, sweet message that this pendant sends. It’s a lovely way to simply tell someone that they hold the key to your heart.”
