Mark Poulin's Little Sloth Necklace 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.
