Tuesday, February 8, 2011 (Houston, TX) – Around this time of year, many are pondering the age old question: He loves me? He loves me not? Others are hoping that Valentines Day will ring in (pun intended) a significant bobble for the finger, followed by a promise for a lifetime. So, how do you bring the heart when giving your loved one a special gift this February 14th? Pen and paper in hand, let’s walk through the three musts for giving gifts with meaning.
Step 1: Consider the Recipient
Obvious to most, but this point must be stressed up front—especially for those who will be gifting their loved one with an engagement ring. “Engagement rings have their own personality. There is a ring to match every style and lifestyle. The buyer must decide if their potential life mate is flashy or more demure; active or not,” cautions Debi Wexler, CEO of WhiteFlash.com. Another enduring trend for engagement rings
is choosing a colored gemstone
as the center stone and diamonds as the accent stone further allowing for a uniquely personal piece.
Step 2: Make it Count —Make a Lasting Impression
In challenging economic times it is only natural to look at ways to cut costs. In that vein, when spending money for a special gift, you should not only make your dollar stretch, you should more importantly make them count. Whether you have a smaller or larger budget, a personal diamond jewelry gift goes a long way in expressing how special someone is to you. To take it a step further, and to add even more heart to your V-Day purchase, online diamond jeweler WhiteFlash.com offers ideal cut stones, the highest level of cut quality, alongside their ultra-exclusive Super Ideal Cut A Cut Above® Hearts and Arrows diamonds. The blinding sparkle and fire that will come from these quality stones will amp up the WOW factor and make any gift an even more priceless gesture of love.
Step 3: Consider Gifts that Give Back…Engage the Heart
Gifting with a purpose is another powerful trend that stretches hard earned dollars beyond their face value; while tugging at the heart strings. In a time when conscious spending is paramount, this cause-focused emphasis makes buyers feel even better about giving, because diamond jewelry lasts forever. One of the best examples of this type of luxury cause purchasing can be found at WhiteFlash.com’s site in their charity focused sub lines; Dreams of Africa (www.DreamsofAfrica.org) and AWEAR: Jewelry for Conscious Kids. What is so unbelievably heart warming about these lines is that a substantial portion of the proceeds from sales, 100% from Dreams of Africa and 20% from AWEAR items, goes to support children in nations hit hard by the blood diamond trade —a true example of full circle gifting.
