Jewelry for Valentine's Day
Jewelry is a perfect gift for Valentine’s day. But the good news is – it’s 2007 and we’re empowered, so you don’t have to wait around for a man to buy it for you. Besides, since when did a man have better taste than you?
You can buy something for yourself, buy something for a friend, or keep this webpage open for your significant other to see and get a hint. Subtle enough? Heh. If you never hint at what you actually do want you might end up with something like a three foot tall stuffed walrus. Would that really blend into your rooms’ decor? I’m thinking not.
This is a fun, dare I say – funky, gift. The enamel heart on this bracelet is a black and white (‘cream’) checkerboard pattern, which I think makes it versatile not only for wardrobe options, but for who you can give it to. It’s not too expensive, so it’d be a great gift to hand off to a best friend. Whether your best friend is stylish or more likely to show up somewhere wearing stirrup-pants from the 80’s, I think that they’ll appreciate this cute bracelet. People always say stuff about wearing a heart on your sleeve, but I’ll spare you my lame attempt at a joke for wearing one on your wrist. Enamel Heart Bracelet at Banana Republic ($28.00) Also available in red.
Send out romantic vibes even if cupid isn’t in the neighborhood. He’s probably at home watching Lost, anyway! (And can he pretty please get Jack and Kate together?) This Juicy Couture necklace is super wearable because it’s both gold (14 karat) and silver (sterling). The arrow on the bow actually has a Swarovski crystal, too. I think it’s very cute and you could wear it as a daily necklace. Give it to your friend who won’t give up on love even though she hasn’t found ‘the one’, yet. This is also good for a beau to give to their romantic interest. It’s a quality gift, but it’s not as if it’s a diamond ring that says ‘let’s be super serious and combine our DVD collection!’ I don’t know about you, but I’m protective of my DVDs. Bow & Arrow Wish Necklace ($62.00)
Me? I’m totally 100% enamored with this briolette necklace from Banana Republic. It’s red, and daring, perfect for an open neck. When I found this I hardly noticed that I’d stopped my channel surfing on a Spanish TV station. I have since realized that, since I don’t speak Spanish and I had no idea what I was hearing. (Don’t tell my high school Spanish teacher’s this, mmkay?) Genuine Rubilite Briolette Necklace ($148.00)
Also, the Zasha Heart Pendant Necklace ($495.00) from Neiman Marcus is the sweetest heart and lock gold necklace. Great for anyone.
