Ask the average person on the street if they know the significance of Valentine’s Day. You’d be surprised at the variety of answers you would gather….it is a fertility ritual; it is a Christian and ancient roman tradition; it is the day of romance; it signifies the beginning of spring; it has its roots in the 1400’s when Valentine, a priest, was beheaded for marrying Christian couples outside of the church; it is a holiday that is symbolized by Cupid, the god of love. etc. etc. etc.
The truth is really a combination of all the above. To really find out the truth about Valentine’s Day, one will come across an array of varied tales and stories that include ALL of the above notions. It seems that this special day is widely rooted in a love-related festival on the 14th of the month because that was the date when Saint Valentine of Rome was made a martyr.
But one thing that everyone agrees upon is that Valentine’s Day is the holiday that provides us with an excuse to express our love to whomever we wish. People write quotes and poems and send gifts of flowers, chocolates, and jewellery to their loved ones. People spend time together, celebrating in their own special way.
So, what does one do for Valentine’s Day? Here are some great ideas that we, at Jeff Walters Jewellers, can help you with….
-stealing his/her ring and having it buffed and cleaned, sized or repaired? Then present it to him/her as if it were the first day you bought it.
-bring your loved one on a "Jeff Walters Jewellers date"? Set it up with us, and when she/he walks in, we will be ready to sit down with you both to …create a custom design, to help you re-invent a piece of jewellery that needs some TLC, or to use old jewellery to create something new and exciting.

Lost ...but NOT found! What to do when your insured rings are gone!
Just finished reading a great story about 10 people who lost their engagement rings and found them in the most unbelievable ways.
Laura, forgot to put her rings back on when she was at the beach and sent them flying into the sand when she shook out her towel. Miraculously, 2 days later, with the help of a metal detector, Laura found both her rings. Now thatâs lucky.
Poor Sarah. She emptied her change-purse, containing her ring, into the cup of a begging homeless man. She realized, the next day, that her ring was missing and, fortunately, she was able to find the homeless man and he returned it to her. When Sarah posted the story, people were so touched that he returned the ring to her that over $187,000 was raised for this man.
In another scenario, Valerie lost her rings when she was at the beach. Even a search with metal detectors didnât help. 17 years later, a family friend found the rings on that same beach. Valerie was so lucky.
Not everyone is so lucky to find their rings/jewellery once they lose them. Some items are long gone into the hands of our criminal elements of society and perhaps, others are lost in a huge giant water filtration system in a city. And of course, there are many other possibilities.
