Have you decided to make your proposal on Valentine’s Day? Here is Roberto Coin’s 5 engagement rings that will leave her breathless.
Valentine’s Day is considered everywhere as the day of lovers, but the origin of this feast is deeper and linked to the life cycle. Pope Gelasius I in AD 496 chose February 14th to celebrate Valentine’s Day. It is the day on which the Roman rite of Lupercalia was celebrated to propitiate the fertility of the land and of women. In the late Middle Ages it has taken on its current meaning, perhaps inspired by the principles of courtly love.
Only in the nineteenth century the craze for greeting cards explodes. This tradition was born in the United States, and then it colonized a big part of the planet as it is doing today.
Any master goldsmith deals with beauty and emotions in the moment of their greatest expansion, when the desire of being together wins over everything and you want to make it official in front of the whole world.
The engagement ring has a unique value, it must talk about your feelings and represent the person who will wear it. And the way you choose to give it must also be as special as your story is. For all those who think that Valentine’s Day could be the right day to kneel before his better half, Roberto Coin has prepared a selection of his most significant rings which are perfect for the big event.
