There are two things she really wants for Valentine’s Day: thoughtfulness and creativity.
And then there’s the one thing she wants more than anything: jewelry.
Lucky for you, I rounded up some of the most unique and gorgeous Valentine’s Day jewelry that you won’t find at your local mall.
Embroidered + Engraved Initial Necklace 1 of 17This hand-embroidered and personalized necklace (available in practically any color combination) is engraved with "i love you" on the back.
Buy from Etsy/merriweathercouncil, $52
Tiny Gold Heart Valentine Ring 2 of 17This sterling silver "skinny" ring (perfect for stacking!) features a tiny 18k Gold heart perched on top.
Buy from Etsy/LichenAndLychee, $68
Tiny Arrow Necklace in Gold 3 of 17A more stylish Valentine's Day necklace than a typical heart. (Hi, Cupid's arrow.)

From the Bottom of my Heart 4 of 17Here's another unique love-inspired necklace, perfect for Valentine's Day.

Spring Awakening Necklace 10 of 17A Valentine's Day necklace doesn't have to be all hearts and arrows. She'll very much appreciate a festive (yet seasonally transcendent) red necklace, like this statement piece from Stella & Dot.
