Aside from the endless pampering and bonding experiences, Valentine’s Day is also about gift-giving. This is no simple feat, gift-giving should be considered an intimate act, as a lot of thought is, or at least should be, put into it. Here are some Bali gift ideas to show to your partner that you’ve been thinking about them.
Jemme is a jewellery mecca that doubles as a dining hotspot, adored for its exquisite afternoon teas and Sunday roasts. This graceful Seminyak gem displays classic favourites, such as bright gemstones and diamonds galore in every colour and design thinkable.
The look you’re going for with Jemme is timeless elegance and sophisticated luxury. From the primary colours of the rainbow to black, champagne, and more, you’ll guaranteed to find a bespoke gift. Many designs incorporate a beautiful combination of hues. The Black Onyx Kalimantan Necklace, for example, mixes black onyx, ruby, pearl, white topaz and green agate set in 22-carat yellow gold vermeil that will flatter any modern-day dame. If you have a classy lady as a partner in crime, opt for the vintage-inspired Smoky Quartz Link Bracelet, or a simple alternative such as the Amethyst earrings set in 9-carat yellow gold or even the Diamond Snowflake Earrings.
