“She bath'd with roses red, and violets blew,
And all the sweetest flowers, that in the Forrest grew”
-Spenser, The Faery Queene iii, 1590

The legend of St. Valentine is one that lives on and will never be forgotten as the world celebrates love, romance and friendship on Valentine’s Day. On this day we express our love for one another with cards, chocolates, flowers and of course jewelry. When thinking of one’s love towards another we think of love, passion, lust and other strong emotions that we can express through the gift of radiant and dazzling jewels.
Cartier ‘LOVE’ collection celebrates love through the special locks placed on all of their jewelry. The late and former Cartier designer, Aldo Cipullo, created the LOVE bracelet. He created this piece of jewelry with locks emulating locks on a chastity belt. These small screws in the bracelet were designed to be fastened with a small screw driver, owned by the lover, symbolizing a faithful relationship.
Chopard also celebrates Love with their alluring pieces from their Happy Diamonds and Love collections. Each piece expresses love through words, diamonds and hearts, which we can wear and feel. A gift from Chopard will surely tell your loved one that they are your one and only.
Elsa Peretti for Tiffany & Co. creates masterful jewelry that speaks miles of our emotions and love. This wearable art is designed to always remind us of our significant other who adorned us with these pendants, lockets and keys which will forever stay close to our hearts.
