Two Sweet! Must-See Jewelry Collabs for Valentine’s Day

Two candy-sweet design collaboration announcements landed in my inbox yesterday within hours of each other. Both involve heart motifs and are tailored to Valentine’s Day shoppers, but the similarities end there.

The first comes from Los Angeles–based designer (and design collaboration savant) Maya Brenner, who has partnered with model-actress Rebecca Romijn, owner of the jewelry brand Charlie Dolly. It’s called the Sweetheart collection, and its capsule launch is kicking off with a sneak peek of three necklaces, each featuring a heart-shape white, pink, or blue sapphire on a delicate 14k gold chain. A larger collaboration will come later this year.

Longtime friends for over 25 years, Brenner and Romijn have a lot in common—both were raised by single mothers, and both grew up in Berkeley, Calif. That genuine friendship, paired with their mutual respect for each other’s career accomplishments, is the perfect context for appreciating how the necklaces are ideal for celebrating the most esteemed members of your squad on Valentine’s Day.

The second was a dispatch from the U.K. involving the jewelry company Origin 31 and its partnership with Swizzels, a sweets factory based in England’s Peak District that makes a popular candy called Love Hearts. (They’re kind of like conversation hearts and apparently—I have never seen or tried them—they’re kind of fizzy, which sounds yummy.)

The collection features heart-shape charms and rings engraved with a handful of popular Love Hearts sayings and punctuated with a single diamond; the opportunity to create a custom message is also available.
