Here, we rounded up the most spectacular, artful creations—from a pair of striking ruby-and-diamond earrings by Graff to Assael’s modern update on pearls—that will make the most breathtaking impression of love, no matter whether it’s a present for a significant other or a treat for yourself.
1. Dancing with movement, color, and radiance, this pair of eye-catching diamond-and-ruby pavé Bombe Luna earrings by Graff boast a bold silhouette that elegantly frames a pair of red pear ruby drops.
2. Who says heart jewelry has to be twee? Designer Michal Kadar uses her signature 18K yellow gold to craft a modern, sculptural, multidiamond ring that opens to reveal additional hearts inside.
3. Inspired by the shape of flower petals cut from paper, this platinum necklace from Tiffany & Co. lends a modern, graphic edge to a traditional floral motif. It’s part of the iconic jewelry house’s Paper Flowers collection, the first by chief artistic officer Reed Krakoff, who joined in 2017.
4. Tickle her fancy with these bold earrings with pink sapphires and diamonds by New York designer Ana Khouri, who considers her creations wearable works of art.
5. This striking flower ring by the Place Vendôme jeweler Boucheron takes real flower petals and immortalizes them as something eternal. The components of each flower are scanned using a medical device to create a precise image before being delicately stabilized with a special chemical-free technique. The final step is a sprinkling of precious stones and metal.
6. Launched in 2015 by Camille Parruitte, the buzzworthy French fine jewelry brand Nouvel Heritage blends playful, modern designs with traditional French craftsmanship—and each piece is handcrafted in Parruitte’s family-owned workshop on the Rue de la Paix in Paris. This striking bracelet in rose gold and spinel can be worn alone or stacked with the Diamond Leon bangle.
7. This one-of-a-kind cocktail ring by Harry Winston will satisfy those with a sweet tooth, thanks to a saccharine explosion of intriguing color combinations and exquisite rare gemstones. The Winston Candy collection, which also includes pieces crafted using mandarin garnets, rare tourmalines, and pastel sapphires, is inspired by a series of archival sketches dating back to the 1950s and ’60s.
8. Known for his effortless, sensual style, the London-based rising star Fernando Jorge uses brilliant gemstones and minerals from his native Brazil and imbues them with bold energy and movement. These elegant multicircle earrings in yellow gold and diamonds will appeal to the modern design aficionado.

10. This whimsical ring—composed of two extraordinary South Sea cultured pearls and six Akoya cultured pearls set in 18K white gold—from the brand’s award-winning Bubble collection proves that pearls are no longer matronly but modern and marvelous.
