6. Nordstrom 2-Carat Cubic Zirconia Earrings
They put diamond studs on their Valentine's day wish list. Along with Airpods, a new winter coat and some combat boots. Phew, something’s gotta give. We promise they won’t be disappointed to receive these classic beauties, even if they’re made from cubic zirconia. As one reviewer put it, “you can't tell they're not D flawless diamonds.”
7. BaubleBar Dalilah Small Tube Huggie Hoops
If you’re looking to get your sister a gift she’ll actually wear (even on a daily basis), you can’t go wrong with these small huggie hoops. They’re light enough that they won’t tug on her earlobes, but they’re chunky enough to be deemed trendy. It's a win-win.
10. Melinda Maria Margot Baby Opal Necklace
This lab-created opal is surrounded by a halo of CZ stones—making it look far more luxe than its $58 price tag. In our honest opinion, this Local Eclectic find is the ideal present for Valentine's Day because honestly, who wouldn’t find it gorgeous?!
11. Shashi Women's Khaleesi Necklace
If you really want to impress a jewelry lover this year, gift them a few necklaces and call it a neck mess starter pack. Intended to look like a tangled jumble of metal and gemstones, a snake chain like this is a great base layer because it plays well with chunky chains and delicate pendants alike.
15. The Sparklane Enamel Signet Ring - Varsity
Choose between seven enamel colors, three types of metal and any letter in the alphabet or number from 0 to 9 to customize this timeless signet ring. FYI, the brand also takes special requests for their designs. So if you’re lucky, you might be able to get even more personal with this gift.
16. Stella Valle Hers | Hers Bracelet Gift Set
If you really want to show her how much she means to you, then you must scoop up this adjustable gold-plated bracelet set. "You complete me" is engraved in both bracelets, and you're supposed to gift one to your special person and keep one for yourself, so that you're connected at all times. With Valentine's day quickly approaching, we can't think of a better time to grab one of these sets.
17. Notte Happy Together Necklacearring
It’s not quite a necklace and not quite an earring; it’s actually both. Yup, the dangling smiley face pendant at the end of this golden paperclip chain can be removed and worn as a single earring. It’s just as powerful a multitasker as your assistant—making it an ideal gift for her.
18. Azzurra Capri Mati Anklet
So she's not into necklaces, earrings and bracelets, why not gift her with something equally as shiny and special? This gorgeous adjustable Azzurra Capri anklet, for example, has been flying off the shelves recently. Why? Well, other than its simple yet elegant design, it's handmade from 14-karat gold and features CZ stones, making it an all-around dazzling piece.
19. DEBORAH PAGANI SOLID PILL HAIR CUFF
We consider a hair tie to be jewelry since it spends 90 percent of its life on our wrists. This Deborah Pagani design is way cuter than the basic black elastics we buy in bulk off Amazon and far less delicate than the silk scrunchies we always tend to ruin. Suffice it to say, this is the Goldilocks of hair ties.
20. Rellery Pearl Choker
Remember the neck mess we referenced earlier? Yeah, this Rellery number is another great addition to the stack since the choker length will sit above most other chains she piles on. However, this style can be worn at 15” or 17”, so she can truly style it however she needs.
21. Monica Vinader x Doina Chain Crossover Ring
There’s certainly a way to exude ladylike charm without layering on the pearls. This crossover ring, for example, is inspired by the Italian glamour of the '50s and is bold enough to make a statement, while the subtle feminine flare will mix and match wonderfully with her other pieces.
22. Eliou 14K Gold-Plated & Freshwater Baroque Pearl Drop Earrings
If she appreciates trendy takes on timeless classics, she'll adore this pair of drop freshwater pearl hoops. An updated version of traditional pearl earrings, these beauties can be dressed up for a fancy night out or dressed down to wear with her everyday fits.
24. NirvanaIN Sparkling Ethiopian Opal Beaded Necklace
Remember what we said earlier about beaded gem necklaces maintaining their status as a trend? Yeah, this fiery string of opals is the absolute epitome of that movement. BRB, we’ll be spending the next 15 minutes being hypnotized by those gorg gems.
26. Nanushka x Alighieri The Flicker of Monastery Necklace
Admit it: the self-proclaimed minimalist is the hardest person to shop for on your list. Regardless, even the most discerning gal you know will find joy in this Nanushka x Alighieri necklace that was “inspired by the last twinkle of candlelight, beaming from the arches of the monastery at night.” Profoundly romantic and mysterious, it’s also made from 24ct gold-plated recycled brass for a sustainable touch.
28. Verlas Marquise Diamond Glitter Bracelet
This bracelet starts at $460 and includes a ⅕ carat SI marquise diamond, plus your choice of 14K yellow, white or rose gold. However, if you want to up the clarity of the diamond or upgrade to 18K metal, you’ve got the choice to do so. After all, doesn’t the one you love deserve the best?
30. Elsa Peretti for Tiffany & Co. Diamonds by the Yard Ring
No, your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you. This is, indeed, a Tiffany diamond that’s well under $1K. This delicate chain ring can withstand everyday wear, and it’s sure to garner plenty of compliments. (Because that 0.7-carat diamond is definitely a beauty.)
31. Anzie Topaz & Sapphire Evil Eye Pendant Necklace
Set with multicolored sapphires and a center topaz, this Anzie style puts a cheerful spin on the classic evil eye motif. (For the uninitiated, the symbol is said to protect the wearer from harm.) However, it’s also an easy way to incorporate a pop of color into your daily life.
34. Larkspur & Hawk Caprice Elements Water Earrings
It’s an understatement to say these earrings give us all the feels. Mainly because they look like what diving into the ocean on a hot summer day feels like. Crafted from a combination of white quartz and various blue sapphires, these babies will definitely add a little something extra to any upcoming date night. *Hint, hint.*
35. Jennifer Fisher Skinny Family ID Bracelet With 2 Diamonds
While this slim ID bracelet might look like a gift that mom would love (because she will), it’s also a sweet way to remind her that her family is always close by. A max of seven characters can be engraved on the 14K white gold bar—all flanked by two diamonds.
36. Yi CollectionEmerald Nouveau Ring
This luxe take on a rectangular signet ring is unique in its simplicity and subtle details. And if you're wondering how to justify such an expensive gift? Aside from this ring’s gorgeous design, it also has a few philanthropic ties. With each purchase, Olivela provides chemotherapy care supplies for children through St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
37. Cartier Baignoire 24.5mm Small 18-Karat Rose Gold and Alligator Watch
Forget about checking your phone to see the time; you’ll want to gaze at this timeless Cartier timepiece all day long. Featuring an elongated oval watch face in 18-karat rose gold and an alligator strap, it’s an elegant investment piece that will only get better with wear.
