Valentine's day is here, and there has never been a better time to show that special person in your life just how much you care. At Hatton Jewels we’ve been scouring the vaults to uncover the best jewellery pieces to make the perfect Valentine’s Day gift. But first, just how did Valentine’s Day come about?
A brief history of Valentine’s Day
It is not known for certain why we celebrate Valentine’s Day in February. The most popular is that this was the month in which Saint Valentine was martyred, although some theorists believe that it was first celebrated in February to overshadow a pagan festival. Two centuries after Valentine’s death, Pope Gelasius became the head of the Catholic Church, and decreed that February 14th should be Valentine’s Day, however, it wasn’t really associated with love until later on. The people of the Middle Ages believed that February 14th saw the start of the mating season for birds, and when this theory was added to the legends of Saint Valentine, it started to make sense that this day should be one on which to celebrate lovers.
