Whether you're newly engaged or preparing for some Valentine's Day cuddles with your long-time sweetie, a little bling never hurts to grease the wheels of love (wink-wink nudge-nudge).
We've taken a peek into the inventory of some of our favorite jewelry vendors to see what gifts are new, shiny, and going to make your partner swoon this Valentine's Day.
Mark Poulin's Little Sloth Necklace (shown above) is like a hug in jewelry form. And that's not all Mark has in the way of ultra-adorable animal whimsies. He's got dinosaurs, hearts, kitties, cupcakes, robots… it's a circus that will make your heart grow three sizes. You can purchase the Little Sloth Necklace here for your cute animal-loving partner.
Harry Potter fans may remember this Golden Snitch ring from House on Hudson. I've been nerd-lusting after it since we first saw it here, and it's far easier to snag this ring than it would be a real golden snitch. Because they're really fast… you get it! You can buy the 18k white gold version here, and there's a sterling silver version, too. (Note: Valentine's Day shipping is only available for the golden topaz, white gold version.)
Longtime sponsors and friends of the Empire, Brilliant Earth, have always brought us amazing and ethical rings, but they've got other tricks up their sleeves, too. Check out this Silver Leaf Pendant with an ethically-sourced green sapphire:. If you're more in the mood for rings (and who isn't?), fear not: Brilliant Earth has rings in abundance, including antique, sapphire, and custom styles.
If rustic jewelry is more your game, tinahdee beautiful jewelry is who you need. We're talking handmade and earthy, subtle and organic, and simply perfect for Offbeat Brides looking for a little sparkle without a lot of show. Plus, they're stackable so you can customize the look.

This sweet Three Dainty Roses band from Wexford Jewelers is super affordable and available in platinum, sterling, white gold, and yellow gold. Wexford is known for their artistic, raw, melted, and all-around bad-ass collections — totally unusual and totally plucked from my fantasies. Get the Three Dainty Roses band here.
EraGem is all about estate jewelry, with one-of-a-kind (and blow-your-mind) antique pieces, like this Antique Old Euro Diamond Ring. There are super rare finds with filigrees, art deco elements, Edwardian-era rings, and of course, fabulous diamonds like the one seen here.

And this one is great for all pairings: couples, friends, children, and anyone who you just want to hug. Snag your own heart-shaped pendant here.
A big, luscious opal with diamonds is a pretty good way to say you love me. And that's why we love
