Nora Kogan - I am a huge fan of Kogan's work and have been lusting after her matchstick cuffs and rings since last year when I popped into her beautiful Brooklyn studio. Read more about the designer here. Don't these pieces say "you light me on fire!" in an edgy and seductive way? Choose from several metal and tip detail (enamel or diamond pavé) options. I am counting down the days until these walk into my life.

Eva Fehren - The X Ring is the perfect way to turn the classic "xoxo" into something she will not want to take off. I especially love that this ring looks amazing on trigger, middle and ring fingers. Fehren's work is perfectly described on her website as having a "tough-but-tender sensibility". All I can say is "yes, please!".

Circa 1700 - Jackpot! This horseshoe necklace which was converted from a Victorian era (19th century) brooch, is a treasure in every sense of the word. This would be the quintessential romantic gift. With nine old mine cut pink tourmalines (WOW! Where have these been all my life?), sixteen rose cut diamonds and light-catching metalwork, I can hardly imagine how stunning and sparkly this piece is in person. To top it off, many believe that the horseshoe positioned in the upright position harnesses good luck by preventing it from spilling out - how sweet!

Jennifer Meyer - who doesn't love a good pair of studs, especially these two pairs which are perfect for Valentine's day!
