Let’s face it, most women want jewelry for Valentine’s Day. I’m excluding myself in this category as I’m probably the only woman in history who has told her husband repeatedly that she has enough jewelry. I know, I’m weird. Luckily I recognize that, so we’ve put together a blog of our favorite new jewelry brands that you can forward along to your significant other or buy yourself this Valentine’s Day. All of these brands are focused on giving the consumer the most value and style for their money, which is exactly what we try to do here on the RLS blog!
AURate jewelry is designed and handmade in New York, using ethically sourced diamonds and gold. Their designs are classic with a chic sculptural edge, which we love. They have two stores in Manhattan, one in Brooklyn, and one here in DC, in Georgetown.
Mejuri believes in fine jewelry for the everyday. By utilizing white sapphires and high-quality gold vermeil, they offer a ton of pieces at a great price point. They produce their pieces in small quantities, so if you find something you love you’ll have to grab it fast. Mejuri has stores in New York, LA, San Francisco, and Toronto.
Vrai uses all solid plated gold and sustainably created diamonds. Their engagement rings are beautifully simple and modern. Kyle has their trillion diamond necklace (before it had the bezel setting) and almost never takes it off.
The Last Line
For a trendy, diamond-dripping jewelry line, look no further. The Last Line makes their pieces with fine stones in almost every shade of the rainbow.
Twist is an online jewelry boutique that carries the most talented designers in the industry. Their pieces are works of art.
Soko’s sculptural jewelry is made by artisans in Kenya using locally-sourced and eco-friendly materials. Many of their pieces are made of brass, so you’ll find gorgeous statement earrings and necklaces at great prices.
Kinn aims to make modern heirloom jewelry that you’ll want to pass down generation to generation. Soon they’ll launch a vintage store as well, which we’re looking forward to!
