As Valentine’s Day approaches, finding that special something for your loved one remains a serious point of consideration. Rather than fighting the battle of surprise, consider a matched set of watches or jewelry as a great way to show your love for one another that gives each partner something to hold as a reminder of their shared experiences. Here are a few of our favorite pairings to keep you and that special someone happy this Valentine’s Day.
de GRISOGONO New Retro Watches
De GRISOGONO, initially more well-known for its stunning, over-the-top jewelry lines, upped its watch game significantly in the past couple of years. The New Retro series launched this past year to great praise from the industry for both its men’s and women’s models. The men’s N01 sports a pink gold case and a vintage green dial, while the women’s S01 model comes in polished pink gold, clad with no less than 303 diamonds with a combined weight of 3.95 carats on the case and an additional 94 diamonds weighing 0.9 carats on the dial. N01, $31,100; W S01, $79,000.
Tiffany CT60 3-Hand Watches
The legendary blue box has long been a safe bet for Valentine’s Day shopping, and with the launch of the CT60 series watches, it’s back to being a perfectly respectable option for any watch enthusiast. Solid Swiss craftsmanship and a tasteful sense of style with a hint of vintage flair make timepieces meant to be worn, cherished and passed along to the next generation. His, $5,250; hers, $4,250.
Damiani Metropolitan Dream Rings and Bracelets
Tasteful jewelry that is properly unisex can be somewhat difficult to come by these days, often leaning either too masculine or feminine. Damiani’s Metropolitan Dream collection is a couple of years old, but its understated design still wins fans among both men and women. The collection includes everything from cufflinks to bangles and earrings, giving shoppers plenty of options when picking the right piece for each half of the happy couple. Black gold ring, $2,490; bracelet, $4,640.
Hermès H Clic Enamel Bracelets
Available in a wide variety of sizes, the classic enamel Hermès H bracelets represent another classic piece equally suited to both men and women wanting a stylish accessory with a punch of their favorite color. The men’s Clic HH bracelet only comes in palladium and a narrow range of colors, but the standard Clic H bracelets offer variable widths, many more color and metal options, and the same larger sizes as the official men’s models. If the opening lines on your first date included, “What’s your favorite color?”, these bracelets offer a perfect way to memorialize that bit of history. $600 each.
