Valentine’s Day is finally here! Everyone knows this is a day to celebrate love and romance with that special someone in your life by exchanging flowers, chocolates, or jewelry gifts such as fabulous 18 kt rings and stunning cultured pearl necklaces. But how much do you know about the origins of Valentine’s Day and why it came to be associated with love? Let’s take a look at some interesting facts about the history of this day. • February 14 was established as St. Valentine’s Day—an officially sanctioned church holiday—by Pope Gelasius in 498 A.D. • The actual saint for whom the day is named remains uncertain, as there are three acknowledged martyrs called Valentine or Valentinus in church lore • One theory as to why Valentine’s Day is associated with love is that a third-century Roman priest named Valentine performed secret weddings for couples after marriage was outlawed by the Emperor Claudius II • The tradition of sending Valentine’s greetings can be traced as far back as the Middle Ages • The first known written Valentine greeting was a poem penned in 1415 by the Duke of Orleans to his wife • Esther Howland is credited with creating and selling the first mass-produced Valentine’s Day greeting cards, which appeared in the 1840s and were adorned with ribbons, lace, and colorful pictures • An estimated 1 billion Valentine’s greetings are sent annually If you somehow forgot to buy a Valentine’s Day gift for your significant other this year, you still have a chance to redeem yourself. After all, it’s better late than never, and a lovely 14 kt white gold garnet and diamond heart necklace or a pair of 1-carat diamond stud earrings can go a long way towards earning forgiveness!
