Adelaide: The city of Churches. And what happens inside churches? Weddings! So, really we’re the city of love. And without being cheesy, love REALLY IS all around us in the heart of the city! In fact Adelaide’s heart is SO big that it wants you to come and fall in love with it all over again this February 14.

If you’re anything like me (time poor/ lazy), I’m sure these Valentine’s Day destinations and ideas will help…


You can’t get more local than Sarah Rothe! In Regent Arcade you’ll find these super spectacular and unique handmade jewels, rings and shiny things. Rose gold is all the rage at the moment — so guys, you can’t go wrong with rose gold ANYTHING (I’m looking at you, my dreamy husband.)

If your lover is of the vintage kind, he or she may prefer a pre-loved timeless or designer piece. You can even design your own — bring in a photograph or sketch into 10 Stephens Place, and they’ll work their magic and make it come to life for you!

Time has a wonderful way of showing what really matters. See what I did there? You cannot go wrong with a perfect watch. Especially watches and jewellery from the world’s most famous fashion houses. If your partner is anything like mine, his watch fetish is more serious than my shoe fetish, so I’m sure another watch to add to his collection would make the perfect gift. And again, they even have rose gold. Everybody wins!

I’ll always remember the day North Terrace went from an 9/10 to a perfect 10. It was the day Tiffany & Co. opened its doors. Most girls go giddy with excitement when they spot a small aqua box. If you REALLY want to make your girl scream with joy, get her something (ANYTHING) from Tiffany & Co. We don’t care. We love it all.

The Myer Centre isn’t just a pretty face, it also holds some awesome shops inside and you can’t miss this little gem. If you want an extra sparkly Valentine’s Day, something from Swarovski will ensure that happens! Warning: Your girlfriend will not magically turn into Miranda Kerr if you buy her Swarovski.



Gerard, your diamonds are fine. Damn fine. For the most exquisite diamonds, you should visit their two locations — Rundle Mall and Adelaide Arcade. They do say that “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend”. They forgot to mention that you’ll also be her best friend if you get her one…or ten.

If you want your partner to wear a piece of South Australia on their finger or around their neck, Opal Diamond Factory can make that dream come true! With over 40 years in the industry, they seriously have the best and biggest range of Opals in SA. Oh and they also have diamonds. Did I mention that? Diamonds! Winner-winner!
