Valentine’s Day jewellery ideas for somebody who needs a hint

Valentine’s Day jewellery ideas for somebody who needs a hint

Most women would argue that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but where jewellery is concerned, I’m more about freshwater pearls and heavy metal earrings, crafted stone necklaces and stacked signet rings. If your boyfriend needs a hint, or you’re spending Valentine’s Day happily alone and wish to gift yourself something beautiful, check out Irish boutiques MoMuse and Loulerie, but don’t discount the high street either. There’s a plethora of artistically crafted pieces available from Mango and Zara right now.

From fine layered necklaces and elaborate earrings to breathtaking (engagement?) rings (easy now), here’s an edit of exquisite pieces for high street and luxury shoppers alike.
