Valentine’s Day Gifts

With customers visiting the store seeking the perfect engagement ring, the feeling of love is definitely still going strong here at Isadora’s. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so we thought we would line up some of our favorite heart-themed items straight from our jewelry cases.

First up, a wonderful vintage silver cloisonne bracelet recently acquired from a trip to San Francisco. The subtle green heart shape centered with a butterfly and surrounded with elaborate silver framework make for a bold statement piece.

Then, we have this very sweet diamond Edwardian era twin heart ring topped with an embellished diamond bow. With a total of 32 single cut diamonds, this ring is very sentimental and gift-worthy.

And lastly, we love this dainty Victorian Era ruby and rose cut diamond ring. The ring is quite popular with customers since we seem to receive so many requests for ruby gemstones. The rose cut diamonds bring this ring up a level in our opinion. Definitely romantic.

We’ll be featuring more romantic and sentimental gifts through Valentine’s Day on our Instagram and Pinterest page, so be sure to follow us there to see more items we love.
