Originally named after the Christian Saint, Valentinus - who was allegedly imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry - Valentine’s Day has become one of the most popular events in the British calendar.
During his time in prison, it is said that Saint Valentinus healed the daughter of his jailer, and before his execution he wrote her a farewell letter signed "Your Valentine". Though years have gone by, the romantic and heroic story of Saint Valentine has advanced into a celebration of love, with the giving of cards and gifts as an affectionate gesture becoming popular.
With a history spanning over a 100 years, luxury designers, Georg Jensen, is sure to have made thousands of women sparkle on Valentine's Day. The late 19th century saw Georg Jensen create his first jewellery piece, and today his legacy lives on, with the company releasing a stunning FW15 product line - just in time for the big day.
