With ornate filigree pendants and chiming pave sound balls, Engelsrufer lockets  are the perfect piece of sparkle with meaning.

She might have told you not to do Valentine’s gifts this year- don’t fall for that trap! She maybe doesn’t want the fuss of old-fashioned romance, but a low-key and on trend piece of jewellery is perfect for her laid-back attitude.

edgy jewellery gifts.jpg

Steer clear of the big designer names this Valentine’s and look into up-and-coming designers with individually striking designs. A simple bangle by Life’s Journey, chosen to match her personality, is an ideal thoughtful gift. Find a Mantra that perfectly matches her free-spirited approach to life, or motivate her with a Giving Key.
