55 Non-Cheesy Valentine's Day Jewelry Finds for Your Fashionable Lover

Every holiday brings with it both the good and the bad—Valentine’s Day is no exception. I’d be lying if I didn’t preface this story by saying that this holiday hasn’t exactly been my favorite over the years (for a number of reasons). There are so many more benefits to other holidays (think insane post-holiday sales or discovering Black-owned brands), but maybe one of the few benefits of V-Day is the jewelry.

As an avid jewelry lover, nothing gets my heart beating faster than diamond—it makes the pressure of this holiday shine a bit more. Of course, it should be noted that, like Valentine’s Day outfits, the themed jewelry around this occasion can veer into the cheesy category. And if you’re anything like me, the idea of giving or receiving heart-shaped pieces is a little too heartbreaking. Luckily, there is chic V-Day jewelry that will make you fall in love (at least with them).
