Best heart-shape Valentine’s Day jewels for under £1,500
You can’t go wrong with a heart-shape jewel and amongst those that caught our eye is the darling little open ring with a gold heart and twinkling diamond (below) by Ruifier , the London house with a quirky and very contemporary take on fine jewels. Simple yet striking are Los Angeles designer to the stars Irene Neuwirth’s brushed yellow-gold dangling heart earrings that are romantic with a touch of West Coast cool. We were won over by gemstones carved into heart shapes with designs like French jeweller Yvonne Léon’s red rhodolite heart pendant on an edgy chain with different chain links on either side. Shay’s adorable chubby little pink sapphire heart studs are sure to make her starry-eyed.

If she looks pretty in pink and loves pastel candy-colours, then these rosy-hued jewels are spot on. Right on trend is Alison Lou’s pink enamel single heart charm earring that she can mix and match or stack up on either ear. But be warned, one Alison Lou ear charm can be addictive. Add some Scandi luxe to her look with this soft blush-hued thread bracelet by the Ole Lynggaard, a family run firm based in Copenhagen that has been providing the world with cool jewels since the swinging 1960’s. Another easy-to-wear bracelet with a touch of laid-back Los Angeles-style glamour is Sydney Evan’s ready-made stack of rose grapolite and facetted-beads bracelet with a diamond-set gold fleur de lys charm.
If pastel with a dash of attitude is her thing, then the rose-colour sapphires add a feminine softness to this edgy single ear cuff by Anita Ko. The cuff simply squeezes on to the lobe in any position you choose. The Mukhi Sisters of Lebanon, Beirut are known for their playful and eclectic style of jewels, a confidence born of their family tradition of jewellery making. This clever single earring fastens behind the lobe invisibly suspending the gold drop below the ruby stud.

If she isn’t the pink, heart-loving type, then Mizuki’s stylish way with pearls make one of her necklaces a good choice for the chic fashionista. White topaz and pearls made for a big look with a minimalist air. And who said that an anklet isn’t a gift of love. Intimate and idiosyncratic, Diane Kordas plays with the celebrity crowd who flock to her for diamonds with a contemporary irreverence such as this diamond evil eye charm anklet. And where better to keep all your lovely jewels than in Copenhagen-based fine jewellery designer Sophie Bille Brahe’s pink velvet jewellery box?
