What about giving a religious bracelet for Valentine’s Day? Why not? A classy and original idea for an elegant gift, but with a deep spiritual meaning.
We already dedicated a long article to Valentine’s Day, not just as the lovers feast, a much commercial event with some charming suggestions, but also as a praise to the Roman bishop and martyr, patron of such a special day. Saint Valentine from Terni was bishop in his hometown in the II century, and dedicated his whole life to protect and help persecuted Christians. He was persecuted as well, and made a martyr under Emperor Aurelian.
Many legends about the life of this Saint describe more or less unhappy loves, in which he had a fundamental role as the protector of lovers. Let’s just think about the pagan legionnaire Sabino and the young Christian Serapy, which the Saint united in marriage even though the two believed in different religions, or the two lovers fighting in the Saint’s garden, the first two people he blessed on February 14th, a date that become fixed for lovers pilgrimages of future spouses since then. Or more, the dowry Saint Valentine gave a girl he could not marry because she was too poor.
According to another legend, the Saint was involved in a love story himself. He was arrested at the behest of the Emperor with the accusation of uniting in marriage young Christians, and fell in love with the daughter of his own jailer. He wrote her a long love letter before he died, signing it “From your Valentine”. It is not by chance then that on Valentine’s Day cards young lovers define themselves as each other’s Valentine.
The feast of lovers dedicated to Saint Valentine was celebrated already in the XV century, in the Courtly Love age. Documents and literature prove this tradition, which, throughout centuries, gained more and more frivolous aspects, but which is also a nice occasion to celebrate love.
Then why not giving your ‘Valentine’ something different from the usual chocolate hearts, perfumes, accessories, fashion items or funny gadgets? Holyart offers you an elegant but impressive alternative: bracelets with religious symbols. They’re not just jewels, but not just devotional objects as well. They are both and much more, and will convey the deep love you feel for your beloved one and the spiritual harmony you share.
