Non-Cheesy Jewelry to Give—And Get—This Valentine’s Day
Forget Tiffany hearts and boring gold chains—here are 15 more creative ways to share some sparkle this February 14. By Sarah Zlotnick

Diamond studs, girly charm bracelets, heart-shaped lockets . . . come February, jewelry companies are consistently guilty of turning out predictable gift options for the lover’s holiday. It’s not that they’re not pretty—it’s just that, well, who wants to give something the giftee will see on every other girl? Off with the tiny cupids and “XO”s, we say! Look like you tried a little harder this year (and spend a lot less money), with a bauble from our roundup of unusual Valentine’s Day jewelry. From wear-’em-everywhere studs to heartbeat bracelets and dirty-word charms, we’ve got something for everyone—especially if you’ve got a sense of humor.

And remember: Unless you’re actually proposing, avoid giving rings, or small boxes that look like they could hold a ring, at all costs. Valentine’s Day is not the day to give a girl the wrong impression.
