The best non-basic jewelry brands for Valentine’s Day 2018
Cuffing season may be close to ending, but the mood to snuggle with your love during sweater weather is forever. As Valentine’s Day is coming in hot, time to blow a kiss goodbye to your candy necklaces and paper hearts!
Here are some non-kiddie Valentine’s Day jewelry brands that you need to check out.
1. Sterling Forever
How are you not in love with this brand? As a hoop earring lover, I can’t help but accumulate more and more pairs, as they match with anything. Compared to most brands out there, Sterling Forever‘s jewelry is playful, casual and elegantly sexy at a steal.
2. Stella & Bow
If maximalism isn’t your cup of tea, but you still wanna floss your goods, Stella & Bow is the go-to brand for you. With its laid-back L.A. girl aesthetic, the teeny tiny pieces you see can create a wonderful statement if you wear it with other rings or necklaces. Although their stuff is extremely delicate and minimal, you can’t FOMO over their rainbow jewelry as it’ll remind of you all of the cute pastel heart-shaped candies and coloring books you had in grade 1.
I hate clichés, but it’s true: the littlest things really DO make the biggest statements. One of my go-to brands for affordable themed jewelry is Vidakush, which I discovered at a shopping event in DTLA a few years ago. From PG-friendly cherry motifs to R-rated marijuana prints, you can’t go wrong by cherry-picking (pun intended) everything they offer. PSA: To all the gorgeous thick gals out there, you can snap up some jewelry from the VidaCurvy range!
4. The M Jewelers
Duckie Thot may be one of the hottest up-and-coming models in the game, and she serves major looks when she layers necklaces. If any one of you think that the chains come from Frasier Sterling, it’s actually from NYC “It” label The M Jewelers. As the go-to brand for celebs like Hailey Baldwin, it specializes in personalized necklaces. If you and your lover want to get matching tats, both of you can try an affordable (and safer) option by wearing matching necklaces! It’s worth the shot minus the cheese factor.
Designed by former porn actress-turned-DJ Jessie Andrews, Bagatiba is the perfect label for cute classics. If you’ve been wanting to get a piece of real gold jewelry, just drop your bags there.
6. Lace by Tanaya
To paraphrase Cardi B, let the diamonds drip all over your body. Especially when it comes to Valentine’s Day, when you want all your eyes on you. If you like statement jewelry, bling and anything that ain’t basic, you need to stock up on Lace by Tanaya. Founded by former model, Tanaya Henry, her earrings are born to make you sparkle inside and out. (P.S. If you’re planning to surprise your S.O., you need to buy snap up on some engagement jewelry as Tanaya makes them, too!)
