Give a unique and lasting gift for Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day, the celebration of love

Since the 19th century, lovers have celebrated their other half and love on February 14th, on the occasion of Valentine's Day. Several legends about the origin of this holiday have emerged over the centuries.

The first legend dates back to the 3rd century in Rome where a saint named Valentin lived. In a context where marriages were forbidden by Emperor Claudius II so that more men would be sent to war, the priest Valentin united couples in the greatest secrecy. When the deception was discovered, the emperor had the priest imprisoned and sentenced to death. During his stay in prison, Valentin then met the blind daughter of his jailer. It is said that just before his execution, on February 14th, the martyr managed to restore her sight and had sent a letter signed “Your Valentin”. Died and tortured, he was canonized after the fall of the Roman Empire in 1496, and thus became the patron saint of lovers and engaged couples. Another legend tells that Valentine's Day was created as a replacement for Lupercalia, a pagan holiday from the time of ancient Rome. These festivals were celebrated around February 15th in honor of Lupercus, the god of fertility.

Whatever the origin of this holiday, it is still celebrated today more than ever in Western countries where lovers exchange tokens of their love.
