If love is the stuff of fairytales, then what better place to look for inspiration for a Valentine’s day jewelry gift? Long before the happy endings, there is whimsy, flora, and magic in these stories, which add complexity, context, and (above all else) a cast. Parlay this into jewelry, and there’s plenty of space for gems, sparkle, and fun to be had that add character to a jewelry collection beyond the expected diamonds.
Leslie Tcheyan, Octavia Giovannini-Torelli, and Thea Giovannini-Torelli, mother-daughter-daughter designers of jewelry line Of Rare Origin (they made the ring worn by Amanda Gorman—gifted by Oprah Winfrey—at the inauguration of President Joe Biden) often infuse their designs with flowers, birds, vines, and the like. “Buying whimsical jewelry isn’t a necessity by any means, which makes it an even more of a personal and sentimental statement,” they say. “When buying, of course assess the quality, value, etc. But most importantly, assess your emotions. It should make you feel something,”
“The only pitfall to ward against is the little voice in your head that says, ‘I can’t get this. I’ll only wear this once,’” say the trio. “Whimsical pieces get you noticed. They draw people to you, they start conversations and make you friends.”
Below, our suggestions for the best Valentine’s Day jewelry gifts to pave the way for a fairytale ending.
