What is the history of Valentine’s Day? Probably some commercial endeavour. Or the lack of a mid-winter holiday? Or a combination of both?
Perhaps it doesn’t matter. And while many folks may end up making empty, half-forced notions due to this holiday, others might use this time to really reflect on what they have, WHO they have in their lives. Let us celebrate being grateful for and to the ones we have in our lives whom we love, and by whom we are loved. Let us celebrate love!
Express your love by the giving of beautiful objects, or simply prepare a loving meal. Create a handmade surprise of your own, or use the creativity of language and a pen & paper, or your voice, to profess your love to him/her/them. Happy Valentine’s Day!

I don’t normally work in 14k, but I did once, so I have these couple of rings here (will not make that combo again):
And, miraculously, I still have this beauty:
