Valentine’s Day is almost here! Need some gift ideas for that special someone or some fun things to hint at for yourself? We’ve made it easy this year with our top ten picks to bring the love this Valentine’s Day. Flowers wilt within the week and chocolate gets eaten as soon as it is opened, but jewelry will let your love sparkle on all year long!
Compass Rose- Let Love Guide the Way
We love our beautiful Compass Rose necklaces and bracelets. Not only are they elegant, but they have a lovely meaning as well. Keep the sentiment that “Life brings us to unexpected places. Love brings us home” or choose one of our custom cards tailored to different relationships and occasions. We are particularly fond of the new two-tone necklace with rose gold for the romantic-at-heart.
Pandora Bracelets- Charm Her
Pandora is a classic choice for a memorable and meaningful gift. Not only is it alluring, the thought that goes into choosing a charm makes it a personal experience. We love some of the new bracelet styles that have been introduced in the past year. Not only are they a great way to start a Pandora bracelet for someone who is new to the charm world, they are a wonderful way to give life to an old collection of charms. The new open bangle has become one of our best-selling bracelets, and for good reason. Not only is it easy to take on and off, but it comes with spacers to keep your charms in place and fits more naturally to your wrist than a round bracelet. The new heart lock bracelet is also a stunning addition to the collection.
The great thing about the curated collections that are released for Valentine’s Day is that they are designed around a common theme. This makes it easy to add some beautiful jewelry pieces that coordinate with the charms to make a well-rounded gift! We love the “Love Locks” pieces from this years collection. The “You & Me” ring is also a sweet piece for a young girl.
Sorrelli Jewelry- Sparkle Your Way Into Her Heart
Does your girl love to sparkle? Sorrelli Jewelry will help her shine! Crafted with Swarovski crystals, this locally designed jewelry line (from Kutztown, PA!) makes both statement pieces and everyday gems to help your special someone get her glitter on. Even better- until Valentine’s Day, purchases in Sorrelli Jewelry of $100 or more will receive a beautiful pair of blush stud earrings for free!
Stacking Bracelets- Create a One-of-a-Kind Collection
Does your special someone celebrate every day with her own arm party of stacking bracelets? Let us help you create a coordinated stack to express your love and fit into her personal style and personality!
Thortiuda- Call Her Angel
Our Thortiuda pendants are a staff favorite- they are one of the pieces of jewelry we get the most compliments on! Classic in style but unique enough to stand out in a crowd, these necklaces open to allow the chime inside to be interchanged for different colors. Named for the Thai word for angel, the necklace is designed from traditional necklaces meant to call your guardian angel. Each colored chime has a different meaning- choose one that best captures your sentiment for the season!
Pandora Rose- For the Romantic
The vintage color of rose gold is popular with the bohemian and romantic personalities alike. Pandora Rose, a proprietary metal blend that combines sterling silver and copper, gives the beautiful hue of rose gold without the price of a solid rose gold piece. This year’s Valentine’s Day collection has some fun new additions in the Pandora Rose. We love the typography-inspired “I Love You” dangle charm. Combining both silver and the Pandora Rose, it is a great way to start on a two-tone bracelet!
WinterLemon- You are my Sun, My Moon, and All My Stars
We love the celestial pieces in our locally-made WinterLemon jewelry, which are handmade from precious metals and genuine gemstones. We think they are a stylish way to express the heavenly nature of love. Not only do they let you show your love for your special someone, they let you show your love for you community as well be supporting a local artist!
Diamonds Are Always a Good Idea
Elizabeth Taylor once said “Big girls need big diamonds”- and for good reason! A girl may have dreams of silver and CZs, but give a woman a diamond! One of the strongest materials on earth, diamond jewelry is an investment piece made to last. Unlike silver fashion jewelry which is not meant for everyday use and will not stand the test of time, giving a gift of gold and precious gemstones means giving a gift that can be worn for decades with the same sparkle.
Alex and Ani- A Gift for the Gals
Celebrating Galentine’s Day with your girlfriends? Drop them a sweet treat with one of Alex and Ani’s new Valentine’s Day bangles! We love the new “Mon Amie” bangle as a way of celebrating friendship- it translates to “My Friend” from French. Add a sparkling Swarovski bangle or one of the new beaded pieces in the shiny rose finish for an extra touch of sparkle!
Chase & Wonder- Humor Her
Does your special someone always tell you that one of her favorite things about you is your sense of humor? Check out some of our fun tongue-in-cheek gifts from upstairs in Haven! Does she always have an overflowing armful of things as she heads out the door to work or school? Get her one of our Chase & Wonder “Foxy Lady” totes!
Is one of your favorite times of the day the early morning when you sit side-by-side reaching optimal levels of caffeine together? Get a matching set of His and Hers coffee mugs. Fill them with some chocolates or a gift card to her favorite coffee place to add an extra treat!
The Gift of Choice
Are you feeling overwhelmed this Valentine’s Day? Give her the gift of choosing her own perfect gift with a Versant gift card. If you want to have something fun for her to unwrap, pick one of our fun (and affordable!) Katie Loxton pouches or wallets to hide the gift card in- when she opens it up she will get an extra surprise.
Stop by Versant to see all of our picks and person! While you are here, save yourself some time (and tape)- we will gift wrap your treasures in our signature wrapping for free. As always, thank you to all of our wonderful customers for choosing to #shopsmall with us and support our local small business.
The classic beauty gravitates towards clean lines, tried-and-true styles, and simple silhouettes with a little bit of sparkle. Trending towards smooth textures in silver or white gold, the classic girl likes pieces that will look good today and twenty years from now.
One of our favorite choices for the girl with a classic style is Ti Sento Milano jewelry. Made from solid sterling silver with a rhodium plated to maintain shine and prevent tarnishing, this beautiful jewelry line embodies elegance. Pavé stones, soft colors, and classic textures add something extra to make each piece really stand out.
We particularly love these beautiful pendant necklaces. Providing a pop of color or sparkle on a small chain, they are a great quality gift at an affordable price.
For the classic girl who prefers a handbag to a piece of jewelry, we love Katie Loxton’s vegan leather bags. These handbags and clutches are made in modern colors with a classic, minimalist silhouette.
We love the witty pieces in Katie Loxton’s Perfect Pouch collection. Available in a wide range of beautiful colors, each pouch has a fun phrase to reflect an outgoing personality. The clutches are great for storing your glam essentials or taking out as a purse for a night on the town!
Another great gift for the classic girl is Gabriel & Company’s fashion jewelry. Made by the purveyors of fine and bridal jewelry, the fashion line is made from sterling silver and gemstones. Gabriel updates classic shapes and styles with unique textures and stones to make pieces that really stand out in a crowd.
Unlike many fashion jewelry lines that use cubic zirconia for added sparkle, Gabriel & Co uses natural stones, such as white topaz or diamonds.
For the Style Trendsetter
Shopping for someone that likes to be on ahead of the pack when it comes to new styles? Check out selections in mixed metals or gold (yes it is back!) in innovative shapes and designs.
Freida Rothman jewelry is perfect for someone who has a more metropolitan style- it has a splash of sparkle set against dark oxidized silver with gold accents.
Statement bangles and cuffs are some of our favorite pieces made by Freida Rothman. Available in two tone or silver, they are a gorgeous piece for someone looking for a splurge-worthy gift.
For the girl who prefers silver, Freida Rothman’s Industrial Finish collection gives a metropolitan edge using silver tones. This collection mixes sparkling stones, matte silver, and oxidized silver for a dramatic finish.
Julie Vos jewelry is another great choice for the trendsetter who is ready to delve into the wonderful world of gold jewelry. Constructed from 24K gold over brass, these amazing (and affordable!) styles are a centerpiece of the fashion blogger world. We love her beautiful stacking bangles.
One of our favorite designs is the Milano 6-Stone bangle. They look amazing stacked together and come in a wide variety of natural stones, providing a lot of color options. We also love the new Caspian Cuff for a dramatic statement piece.
We also love Julie Vos’ long, layering necklaces. The new Caspian necklace in gold with oxidized silver accents is one of our favorites from the fall collection. The Coin Pendant necklace, which can be worn long or doubled into a shorter layered necklace, has been a favorite on the fashion blogs.
Does your style trendsetter prefer a one-of-a-kind piece that no-one else is likely to have? Our Bora jewelry is a great choice for her! Handmade by a New York City based Turkish designer, Bora pieces have a Byzantine influence with a modern style. We love the natural textures incorporated into each piece.
For the Sentimentalist
Searching for a gift for someone who prefers something symbolic of the important moments in their life over the standard glitz and glamor? Look to one of the many customizable jewelry lines that allow you to tailor your gift to both suit her tastes and represent the events and people that have touched her life. There has been a big movement in recent times to make jewelry more personal with great benefits for gift givers. It is hard to go wrong when you know that the present you have wrapped under the tree represents something special to her!
One of our favorite charm lines is Waxing Poetic. Waxing Poetic was originally inspired by the vintage look and poetic history of wax seals and is made from brass and sterling silver for a beautiful mixed metal look. Their mission statement is to celebrate the potential for transformation in all of us. The jewelry they create pays homage to the journey of our lives: where we come from, what our stories are, and how they have influenced both the world and us.
From symbols such as the tree of life, moon, and anchor to more direct representations of family members, such as initials or birthstones, each charm is meant to have its own story.
The Transformative Dragonfly pendant is a gorgeous statement piece. This large charm is set with labradorite for a natural iridescence.
Even better- their charms can be worn in a variety of ways- hanging on a simple chain, stacked on brass or sterling bangles, or grouped together on one of their charm holders or beautiful beaded ensemble necklaces.
Many of the Waxing Poetic charms have a message engraved in the back making them reversible and giving them an extra layer of sentiment.
Another great option for someone who appreciates a gift that has a deeper meaning is Alex and Ani jewelry. Alex and Ani creates meaningful, eco-conscious jewelry and accessories that adorn the body, enlighten the mind, and empower the spirit. Alex and Ani’s collections reflect a design aesthetic that celebrates each wearer’s unique essence and their artistry lies in drawing out the beauty that resides within.
Each Alex and Ani bangle or charm comes with a meaning card describing the meaning behind the symbol and providing three key empowering words that the symbol represents. From symbols directly representing aspects of a person, such as birthstones and initials, to more figurative symbols such as hope, strength, and healing, you are sure to find a personal and meaningful gift within the multitude of charms available. Their recent addition, adjustable cuffs, are a great addition for the girl who has a lot of the bangle style design.
This year, Alex and Ani has made gift-giving even easier with their curated sets. These sets incorporate several bangle and beaded styles meant to complement each other, making a complete stack. We particularly love the rose gold joy set!
Most of the collection is made from recycled metals, but the Providence collection provides an elegant redesign of the more popular symbols in sterling and gold plated sterling. It is a great way to gift Alex and Ani to someone who
Making a gift meaningful and personal doesn’t always mean that it has to be a traditional charm or symbol. The Pandora Essence collection has all of the meaning of other charm lines but has a clean and elegant profile that suits those with a more simple or classic style. The beads themselves can be worn on the sterling Pandora Essence bracelet, bangle, or necklace. The Essence charms are all similar in size and design, with different colors or patterns symbolizing the virtue that they represent; because of this design they look like an elegant bracelet or necklace but still have a deeper meaning.
Each bead in the Pandora Essence line is associated with a different trait or emotion, such as love, friendship, faith, or confidence.
Another idea for the girl who likes beautiful things with beautiful meanings behind them is our new line, Compass Rose. The compass rose, also called the windrose, is a navigational figure that displays the cardinal directions and their intermediate points. The inside of the rose is filled in with an ornate star that is symbolic of the North Star. This was the principle navigational tool used for centuries as guidance.
The motto of Compass Rose is that “we are not just travelers, but navigators of our futures.” In addition to this standard card, we have many custom cards to celebrate the different ways people guide us and help us on our journey through life.
Our new additions to the Compass Rose line are more ornate, with oxidized details or beautiful colored enamel. We love the anchor incorporating the compass rose design! These pieces are engraved on the back “Life brings us to unexpected places. Love brings us home.”
For the bracelet lover, Compass Rose is available as a sterling bangle or a cord bracelet as well. We love the contrast of the silver compass with the black cord.
For the Detail Oriented
Shopping for a girl who cares about the little things that make an outfit perfect? We have some great options with interchangeable pieces that help coordinate one piece of jewelry for many occasions!
Brighton’s Christo Cuffs are a wonderful choice for the girl who has a strong bracelet game. These cuffs have an open metal design into which you can insert reversible leather pieces in fun colors. Wear them without an insert for a more open feel and change your colors to match your outfit (or your mood!)
The fall collection included some beautiful new beaded inserts to use in the open cuff. We love the colors and details!
For the girl who prefers a necklace to a bracelet, our Thortiuda pendants are a very popular choice. These distinctive cage-shaped pendants open to allow the orb inside to be changed. Changing a grey colored orb for a brightly colored one completely changes the look of the necklace.
For a little extra sparkle, some of the cages are spangled with glittering CZs.
Not enough sparkle for you? Check out these amazing crystal encrusted orbs!
For the girl who prefers handbags to jewelry, we love the idea of adding fun bag charms to give a classic bag a touch of personality. We love all of the tassel charms from Spartina 449’s fall collection!
This bee tassel/keychain in a seaglass blue is another one of our favorites.
For the Local Lover
Are you shopping for someone who is filled with hometown pride and adorns themselves (and their home!) with symbols of their local roots? The best part about shopping at a locally-owned small business is the exclusive finds that celebrate our beautiful city!
One of our favorite new jewelry concepts is the coordinates cuff and necklace. These sterling and gold plated pieces from Lat & Lo celebrate where you are anchored. They have crafted for us an exclusive version of the coordinate cuff and bar necklace with the coordinates of Bethlehem on the outside and our city name with the Star of Bethlehem on the inside. These pieces are a great gift both for those who celebrate the city where they live and for those who have had beautiful memories here and no longer live in the area.
Another great way to celebrate the love for local is by supporting a local artist. Our WinterLemon jewelry is not only beautiful, but it is handmade in Bethlehem, PA! Ranging from stocking stuffers like beaded bracelets made from natural gemstones (starting at $15) to luxe items like diamond necklaces, there is something for everyone AND your purchase goes invests in the community that you love.
Our favorites from WinterLemon’s holiday additions are these beautiful oxidized silver and rose gold celestial themed diamond necklaces.
Each of the natural stones used in WinterLemon’s bracelets has a meaning or promotes certain attributes. With a wide color palette, it is fun to try to find a meaningful stone that matches your style.
We also love WinterLemon’s suede choker necklaces with dainty charms. Tying at the back of the neck, tie them as a choker or wear them longer for a more traditional look.
For the Bethlehem native, our exclusive Star Collection jewelry is a great choice. Designed around the Star of Bethlehem motif, these necklaces range from dainty sterling silver pieces for $55 to solid 14k gold pieces for $410.
We love the sterling silver open star necklace. It is also a great choice for any health professionals who work within the St. Luke’s network!
For those looking for something to adorn their home, there are a lot of local finds upstairs in Haven. Our black and white photo prints and vintage greeting card reproductions are another great way to gift the local lover.
For those who went to college locally, we have prints available for Lafayette, Lehigh, and Moravian as well.
For the Rosy Romantic
Rose gold continues to grow in popularity, especially with those who are a romantic at heart. The warm tones of rose gold pair well with bright sterling silver, and are a great complement for the jewelry box of a girl who likes silver and white gold.
We have a variety of rose-gold plated sterling silver jewelry that gives a rosy tone without the price of solid rose gold.
In addition to necklaces and earrings, we have some beautiful rose-gold plated bracelets that are adjustable to your wrist size. Stack them with some of our Katie Loxton beaded stretch bracelets for a sparkling statement in silver and rose!
Pandora’s Rose collection has become very popular in the last year as well. Their rings are a standout choice- get a statement piece or create your own curated stack!
We also love all of the new Pandora Rose charms added to the Essence collection. Pair the sparkling rose pieces with some bold black and white for an outstanding statement piece.
Looking for a luxe-level gift? Our gorgeous solid rose gold and diamond pieces are heirloom-worthy pieces that will stand the wear of time. Unlike plated silver pieces, where the rose gold finish can eventually wear off, real rose gold pieces have the strength and longevity of gold. We love these dainty diamond necklaces, especially the anchor symbol.
More of an earring girl? These crescent moon statement earrings and cone-shaped dainty earrings are some of our favorites pieces in the diamond case!
If rings are more her thing, we have some beautiful thin stacking bands in rose gold. For a unique look, check out our rose gold and labradorite ring!
For the Entertainer
The Entertainer loves the hustle and bustle of a busy house, and the centerpiece of her home is the kitchen where friends and family gather for good times and great company. The best gifts for the Entertainer are ones that highlight these occasions and celebrate her love for being everyone’s favorite host.
When opening our new upstairs lifestyle and home boutique, Haven, we sought out high quality serving pieces, barware, and other home items that follow the modern movement in home decor by using natural materials in a neutral palette. These touches of marble, slate, natural wood, and copper make the perfect palette for displaying the Entertainer’s gourmet treats.
Another gift idea for the Entertainer is a collection of scented candles. A good quality candle not only adds ambience to any party, but it makes her home smell fresh and inviting. At Haven, our Greenmarket Purveying Company candles are beautifully presented, all-natural, and locally made in Bucks County.
We also love our Bonny and Blithe candles, goat’s milk soap, and lotions. Handmade in Portland, Oregon, they are beautifully presented and make a great addition to a kitchen or guest bathroom.
Love going out to eat? Check out our fun wine caddies made from upcycled military tarps and tents to tote your wine bottles to your favorite BYOB in style!
If coffee is her life, we love these Chase & Wonder mugs to add some personality to her daily caffeine fix.
For the Sparkling Star
Are you giving a gift to someone whose favorite quote is “never let anyone dull your sparkle”? You have a Sparkling Star on your hands! The Sparkling Star is drawn to anything that has that lovely glimmer when the light catches it, and she is like a kid in a candy shop when she goes into a jewelry store.
Needless to say, we are stocked full of glistening jewels for the Sparkling Star in your life. In addition to our fine jewelry, we have a lot of affordable options available that still pack on the glitz. One of our favorite collections of jewelry is Officina Bernardi. This Italian sterling silver line is manufactured with a patented cut to make the silver catch the light the way a faceted gem would. They offer a wide range of necklaces, earrings, and bracelets in silver, gold plated, rose gold plated, and black rhodium plated to suit a variety of tastes and purposes.
If you are looking for a splurge-worthy gift in the Officina Bernardi line, the Comet necklace is a great choice. This long tassel necklace is finished in a warm rose gold with silver accents. As versatile as it is beautiful, you can dress it down with a white T-shirt or take it for a night on the town in a little black dress.
Another great gift to keep your girl twinkling is new to Versant- Sorrelli Jewelry! Not only are these pieces super sparkly- they are encrusted with Swarovski crystals!- they are designed locally in Kutztown and have a lifetime warranty. We love the holiday Black Onyx collection.
For the girl who loves warm tones, their Mahogany pieces set in Antique Gold finished metal are stunning as well.
Not only beautiful, but versatile, some pieces are even convertible such a multi-strand wrap bracelet that can also be worn as a bib necklace.
There is one gift that outshines any other for the sparkling star- diamonds! Nothing says sparkle like a white diamond set in white gold.
For the sparkling star who likes a touch of color, we love these diamond and sapphire studs. They are a particularly special gift for a bride-to-be- she can wear them at her upcoming wedding as her something blue!
Looking to really spoil her? We have some amazing diamond hoop earrings ranging from pave diamonds to these outstanding teardrop shaped hoops with large diamonds.
For the Gentleman
Versant is not only for the girls! We also have some fun finds for the gentlemen in your life.
Upstairs at Haven we have a great find for the guy who is into our local history. Our exclusive local map prints, available framed or unframed, were created using vintage maps to create a modern graphic that celebrates local neighborhoods. Map prints are 11×14″ and are available for Historic Bethlehem, West Bethlehem, South Bethlehem, Northeast Bethlehem, Bethlehem Township, Fountain Hill, Upper Saucon, Lower Saucon, Easton, South Easton, Nazareth, and Phillipsburg.
In addition to our local map prints, we have some detailed bird’s eye view maps of local areas as well, including Allentown, Easton/Phillipsburg, Bethlehem, Philadelphia, New York, and Boston.
Have a guy with a sense of humor (but not humility?). Check out our witty “Dandy Lion” British screen printed tote from Chase and Wonder.
And accessorizing is not only for the girls! Our new line from Waxing Poetic, Poet, is designed with your man in mind. These leather and sterling bracelets and tag-style necklaces are adorned with strong symbols. We particularly love the North Star and Dove necklaces; the Anguis snake tag necklace reminds us of the Caduceus and would be a great gift for a doctor.
Alex and Ani has also just released their first men’s cuff, the Meditating Eye. A Charity By Design piece benefiting the David Lynch foundation, this adjustable cuff brings protection and awareness.

The Alex and Ani Pre-Autumn mini collection has arrived at Versant! Included in this small collection are redesigned versions of some of our favorite retired styles, a new Core style, and four new Words are Powerful Limited Edition seasonal bangles.
Some of our favorite core bangles were retired early this year and have, until now, only been available as the new cuffs. With this new collection Healing Love, Godspeed, and Cosmic Balance are invited back into the bangle world! We love both the meanings and the aesthetic of these three designs. In keeping with the newer designs, the redesigned bangles have a more 3-dimensional feel and most of them feature sparkling Swarovski stones.
We love the new Cosmic Balance design with the halo of sparkling stars around the sun and moon. The Godspeed is a nice balance of the geometric and the natural and makes a great addition to any charmed arm.
The redesigned Healing Love has the shape of an 8-pointed star and is the only new bangle style that does not include a crystal. In addition to the three redesigned styles, a new symbol has been added! The Evil Eye, a symbol of protection across cultures, is set against an ornate background and has a bright blue gaze.
In addition to the new core styles, four new seasonal Words are Powerful styles are included in this collection. We love the Thankful (a great bangle to grab now and keep as a Thanksgiving gift!). The Just Breathe is a fun gift for the Yoga girl. Both the Wanderlust and the Create your Destiny are great gifts for the new grad setting out on their next adventure!
In addition to the new bangles, two new Rafaelian silver expandable necklaces have arrived in the Cosmic Balance and Evil Eye designs. The necklaces include two moveable beads that allow for the addition of two more chain station charms.
Interested in the new Alex and Ani pieces? It is always better to see them in person to get a true idea of their size and detail!
Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and we have hand-selected some special treats to make mom’s day! Whether she is a sentimental soul or a trendsetter on-the-go, we have searched the world to find the perfect gift for every kind of mom. Check out all of our selections below in our Mother’s Day gift guide.
A few helpful hints before we start- plan to shop before the crowds arrive. The early bird really does get the worm- many of our promotions are the first week in May and the best selection is available when you get there first. If you are shopping for Pandora or Alex and Ani, take a peek or snap a pic of mom’s collection before you set out. That way you won’t have to fret over whether you have already given her that mom charm! And forget about buying wrapping paper and ribbon- gift wrapping is always complimentary at Versant! Got all that? Okay then- ready, set … shop!
If mom’s sense of style trends towards bright silvers, simple lines, and a touch of sparkle, she appreciates classic beauty. Giving a gift that will stand the test of time means going back to the classics. Clean styles in neutral colors are always a good idea. Mom will get the most wear out of a versatile piece she will be able to fancy up with a little black dress or dress down with a tee and jeans.
One of our favorite jewelry lines that creates classic styles with an updated aesthetic is Ti Sento Milano. Crafted from sterling silver, these pieces are rhodium plated to inhibit tarnishing and keep a bright, beautiful finish. Studded with sparkling, handset stones, they are great for transitioning from day into night.
Some of our favorite Ti Sento necklaces feature a round pendant with a pavé CZ or colored stone interior. We love the beautiful, soft colors of the stones. Ti Sento uses manmade crystals for their colored stones, ensuring that the color of each piece is consistent. This is a great feature for buying companion rings or earrings on future occasions!
If mom prefers bracelets and rings to necklaces, Ti Sento has some gorgeous hinged bangles. Made from heavy sterling silver, they really make a statement! We love the new spring design with entwined silver, pavé CZ, and mother of pearl strands.
Another great choice for the mom with the classic sense of style is Gabriel & Co’s fashion jewelry. Gabriel is primarily known for their high-end engagement rings, wedding bands, and fine jewelry. Their fashion line is constructed from sterling silver with precious and semi-precious stones. Using sterling allows for the same quality of design and construction at a lower price.
We love their quatrefoil necklace and earrings for mom. An iconic style with a slightly vintage feel, these pieces are feminine without being too delicate.
For the mom who likes the classics but wants something unique, Gabriel’s mother of pearl pieces are a great choice. These rings, earrings, and pendants use mother pearl with a piece of faceted quartz on top to give the piece more dimension. Although at first glance they look like a neutral grey, the iridescence of the dark mother of pearl picks up pretty pinks, greens, and other colors in the light.
Are you looking to really treat mom this Mother’s Day? (She deserves it!) Nothing is as classic or eternal as fine jewelry. While good fashion jewelry makes a beautiful statement, sterling silver does not have the strength for long-lasting wear the way that gold does. To give mom a classic piece that she will be able to wear for years and pass on to her children, gold is the way to go.
For a gift that mom can wear every day, stud earrings are an excellent choice. They have just the right amount of sparkle to be able to worn with any outfit. Studs are a great gift for new moms because they are a piece of jewelry that small hands can’t easily grab!
A dainty necklace is also a wonderful gift idea. These pieces add a touch of delicate sparkle and will never go out of style. We love the anchor necklace below. A symbol of stability and hope, the anchor holds fast and steady in both calm and stormy weather.
Let’s Get Personal
We love a gift that you can personalize to customize it to mom’s taste and represent your family and special memories that you share. Luckily, there are a lot of different types of jewelry that let you combine pieces to make mom a unique and thoughtful gift.
When talking about celebrating and creating unforgettable moments, Pandora is a great choice for someone looking for a wide range of styles. Not only do they have a vast selection of charms for their bracelets, but their jewelry is diverse, well-made, and affordable.
We love the new floating locket designs that have been introduced this season. The lockets themselves are a clean, classic design and use sapphire crystal found in high-end watches to provide a scratch-resistant surface. Sets of three petite charms can be used to personalize the lockets. We love the infinite love and the birthstone trios! The new heart lockets can be used with an insert plate in the back to add another dimension to the design.
For those looking to start a Pandora bracelet or add a new bracelet to their existing collection, the Tree of Hearts gift set is a great way to do so. This set includes a Limited Edition heart-clasp bangle with the inscription “You are so loved” and the new Tree of Hearts charm. The gift set is presented in a special light pink Pandora box. Personalize the set by adding spacers in the colors of family members’ birthstones or charms with their initials!
Pandora’s new stackable birthstone rings are another great option for giving mom a personalized gift. Make a stack with the birthstone of each family member to create a modern version of a mother’s ring.
Another great option for curating a personalized set for mom is Waxing Poetic jewelry. This line of charms, necklaces, and bracelets is inspired by vintage wax seals. Create a mother’s day collection using talismans representing family, meaningful words and phrases, and insignia with initials.
An added bonus to shopping the Waxing Poetic collection is the free charm promotion that will be going on from May 1-May 14. During this time, when you spend $100 in Waxing Poetic jewelry, you will get a Mom Birdsong charm for free. We love this charm paired with the Bundled with Love nest. Add symbols representing each family member to really personalize mom’s charms!
For the mom with a more casual style, Alex and Ani is a fun way to create a stack of bracelets to represent her family and what makes her stand out. This Mother’s Day, Alex and Ani has released several limited edition sets. These bangle and beaded styles only available for a limited time as part of each set. The I Love You Mom set of five and Mom set of three are great starter sets for a mom just beginning her Alex and Ani collection.
We particularly love the Infinite Connection set. With one bangle for mom and one bangle for daughter, it reminds us of the classic “give one, keep one” friendship sets. Add a beaded bangle in a birthstone color to personalize mom’s portion of the set!
Another way to create a personalized bracelet collection is with the updated birthstone bangles. These bangles are now available in the matte gold and silver finish and adorned with a teardrop shaped Swarovski crystal. Mix birthstones bangles, colored beaded bracelets, and initials for mom and her crew to create a varied stack.
Is mom the superhero of your family? Add one of the new Wonder Woman bangles or cuffs to her Mother’s Day stack! These new additions to the Alex and Ani world feature the iconic Wonder Woman logo and symbolize strength and the fight for love and justice.
The Trendsetter Mom
Is mom a style trendsetter who loves to be on the cutting edge of what is new and fashionable? Look for pieces that use different metals in innovative ways and go out of their way to make a statement. Bolder earrings in versatile designs, necklaces that are longer or shorter (think chokers!), and stacks of fun bangles are a great way to gift the trendsetter mom.
We love Julie Vos jewelry for a striking design in warm gold with pops of bold color. Her long layering necklaces and stackable bracelets have been very popular on the fashion blogs, and for good reason. With styles inspired by nature, architecture, and byzantine motifs, these pieces bridge the gap between classic and trendy. Julie Vos’ jewelry is constructed from 24K gold over brass, giving it a wonderful warm tone.
For the beach-loving mom that loves the summer sun, choose pieces where watery blues or bright turquoise are set against gold.
Many of Julie Vos’ long necklaces, like the bee below, include a special jump ring so that they can be doubled and worn at a shorter length.
Another great brand for the trendsetter mom is Freida Rothman. Based in New York, they combine a metropolitan style with a fun use of mixed metals and stone settings. For a brighter style, their yellow gold plated pieces set with amazonite are gorgeous. For a versatile piece, we love their pavé studs with amazonite ear jackets. Wear them as plaint studs without the jackets, or dress it up with a dangling pop of color!
For an edgier style, check out Freida Rothman’s mixed metal pieces. Using yellow gold plating and oxidized sterling silver gives a great contrast to these fashionable pieces. Pair them with some labradorite jewelry to complement the color combination.
Our store exclusive line, WinterLemon, also has some beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces that are well-suited for the fashionable mom. Handmade locally, they use a mix of cutting edge shapes and metals with semi-precious gemstones. As with Freida Rothman’s jewelry, the mix of yellow gold and oxidized silver takes a classic design and gives it a more contemporary edge.
For those that would like a statement piece without a heavy look, we love WinterLemon’s necklaces crafted from a delicate chain, freshwater pearls, and faceted gemstones.
Another way to make a statement without being too bulky is to use an unconventional necklace length or a adding bright colored stones set without a large amount of metal. We love this necklace with a slice of bright green chalcedony wrapped in a fine outline of gold vermeil.
Sweet and Sentimental
Is mom known for being softhearted and turns to mush over a gift with a story behind it? For the sentimental mom, we love pieces that have a romantic or nostalgic undertone.
Both beautiful and meaningful, Thortiuda pendants are a terrific gift for the sentimental mom. Thortiuda, meaning “angel” in Thai, are also known as angel whisperers. Each pendant cage encloses a colored chime. The delicate chime is meant to call our guardian angels to our side, so that they can protect us from all dangers.
Thortiuda is also the perfect gift for a mom-to-be celebrating her first mother’s day. The idea of the angel whisperer chime has been present across many cultures. It was worn during pregnancy to protect expectant mothers and their babies. After birth, it could be kept by the mother, or be given to the newborn baby to protect it in its sleep, to soothe it with the reassuring and familiar gentle chime, and to protect it by calling the invisible presence of its guardian angel.
Each chime insert color has an individual meaning and sound. On the fashion side, the interchangeable orbs allow the wearer to change the look of the necklace for different seasons and outfits.
Another wonderful way to surprise mom with a sentimental gift this Mother’s Day is through the Pandora Essence collection. Similar to the traditional Pandora charm bracelet, these pieces are personalized by choosing your bracelet and charms separately. However, unlike the Moments bracelet, the Essence charms celebrate different values and attributes of the people we love. Each charm is designed to reflect a chosen trait, such as loyalty or dedication, and this trait is engraved onto the side of the charm.
Pandora Essence is wonderful for moms just starting a charm bracelet because the charms themselves have silicon in the interior of the charm that allows the charm to stay in place on the bracelet. This lets mom style the bracelet by grouping charms together or separating them. Because the charms stay in place, the bracelet never looks empty or unfinished.
For moms with a distinct romantic side, we love jewelry accented with rose gold. The warm pink tones of rose gold make it a stand-out metal for the dreamy mom. Used widely in the Victorian era, it also has a touch of vintage fun that appeals to the nostalgic mom.
Pandora has recently expanded their collection to Pandora Rose. These pieces are made from a proprietary blend of copper and silver at the core with a layer of 14K rose gold plating on top. We love the pieces with some sparkle- the stones stand out so brightly against the rose! They have designed some of our favorite rings in Pandora Rose as well. Add a rose accent to a sterling stack, or create an all rose collection!
To gift mom a full set in Pandora Rose, we love the Timeless Elegance design. This classic style is given a twist with the warm rose gold hue and is available as stud earrings, ring, and pendant.
Many of our WinterLemon pieces are also available with rose gold plated accents. We love the mix of rose gold with the soft grey of labradorite- the iridescence in the labradorite gemstone picks up the warm pinks of the rose. We love the sweet bee necklace below as a dainty piece to honor the queen bee of the family!
For a more classic look in rose gold, Elle Jewelry’s rose gold plated sterling pieces feature iconic shapes updated in the rose gold metal. The fleur earrings and necklace are a beautiful romantic style. For a more modern feel, we love the sparkling bar necklace that mixes rose gold with shiny silver.
Another way to treat the sentimental mom this Mother’s Day is to feather her nest with some accents that reflect the love of her family. Upstairs in Haven, our locally-made burlap canvases feature a family tree and nostalgic phrases shared between mother and child.
We also love our Love You to the Moon and Back and This is my Happy Place pillows as a way to brighten up mom’s home with expressions of love.
Accessorize that Gift Card!
Everyone loves gift cards- they are versatile and let mom pick something you know she will like. But as fun as using a gift card is, opening a gift card on Mother’s Day is not very exciting. Luckily, there are some great creative ways to jazz up that gift with some small accessories that give a hint of the gift card being received!
Is mom a coffee lover? These new mugs from Chase and Wonder are a great way to accessorize a gift certificate to Starbucks, Dunkin’ Donuts, or your local coffee shop. When the gift card is spent, she will still think of you every time she has a cup.
For the mom that loves to travel, these travel bags and accessories made from upcycled military tarps are a great way to surprise mom with a fun trip. The adorable makeup are also a great way to present a gift card to Sephora or Ulta!
If mom loves the spa or getting a massage, add to her relaxation with these luxurious bath and body products from Blithe and Bonny. Hand-crafted in the USA, they smell amazing and they are beautifully presented. In store we have the Cedar & Sage, Grapefruit, and Herbes de Provence Scents available.
Does mom like to relax at the end of the day with a nice bottle of wine or craft beer? Get her a beer or wine caddy and fill it with her favorite bottle!
Do you want to give mom the gift of Pandora but are letting her choose her own charms? Bundle your Versant gift card with a Pandora Care Kit. The Care Kit is only $15 and contains 2 polishing cloths, 2 pouches, a soft brush for cleaning, and a sterling clip opener/keychain.
Another fun and affordable way to present any gift card is in a canvas pouch. Pouches are great for carrying essentials or using as a cute clutch. Hide your gift card inside to give mom a special surprise!
Whatever type of mom you are celebrating this Mother’s Day, we hope you found some ideas to help celebrate the wonderful woman she is. Stop by the store to see some of our suggestions in person (and so much more!). Our friendly staff would love to show you some of our personal favorites and work with you to find the perfect gift to make mom smile.

The new Alex and Ani Mother’s Day collection has arrived at Versant! There are a lot of beautiful Limited Edition sets and bangles that have come with this collection. Like last year’s Mother’s Day collection, these pieces are only available for a short period of time. Make sure to stop by and pick one up for mom before they are gone!
Alex and Ani describes the new collection as a representation of what it means to love infinitely. The connection between mother and child knows no bounds- it strengthens, depends, and evolves over time. Keep reading for some of the highlights of the new collection below.
We love the new multi-bracelet sets as a way to give mom a curated group meant to be worn together. Sets are also a fun way to start an Alex and Ani collection for someone, as it gives them both bangle and beaded styles.
The Color Infusion Mom set of three ($98) features a beautiful heart with “mom” inscribed in the enamel. This bangle is accompanied by two beaded bracelets that complement the enamel of the heart bangle. The Color Infusion Mom set is available in shiny silver with a periwinkle enamel and Shiny Gold with a teal enamel. The Color Infusion Mom design is available as an expandable necklace as well!
The “I Love You Mom” Set of Five ($128) features a Limited Edition bangle with “I Love You Mom” inscribed around an iridescent enamel heart. This bangle is accompanied by four beaded bracelets in soft pinks and iridescent whites. The I Love You Mom set is available in the Rafaelian Silver and Gold finishes.
The Infinite Connection Set of Two ($48) is a meaningful way to celebrate the connection between a mother and a daughter. Mothers and daughters share a profound and infinite connection. Through the laughs, tears, advice, and growing pains, the bond remains unbreakable. The Infinite Connection set is available in the Rafaelian Silver and Gold finishes.
In addition to the curated sets, Alex and Ani has included some new bangle styles in the Mother’s Day collection.
The Limited Edition Because I Love You ($38) features a bright enamel background on a shiny finish. This bangle is adorned with a heart-shaped Swarovski crystal to add a little sparkle to mom’s stack.
Another exciting new addition that we are hoping becomes a permanent part of the collection is the new bridal collection ($34). Celebrating special relationships with the bride, these bangles include Mother of the Bride, Maid of Honor, and Bridesmaid. Available in both Rafaelian Silver and Gold, each bangle has a Swarovski crystal as the centerpiece. These bangles would be a great way to ask your special gals to be a part of your bridal party!
Charity by Design Additions
The Alex and Ani Mother’s Day collection has also seen some new additions to the Charity by Design bangles.
The whimsical Fairy bangle ($38) celebrates dreams coming true and the power of belief. 20% of the purchase price will go to support Give Kids the World Village. This charity creates magical memories for children with life-threatening illnesses.
The new Baby Block bangle ($28) symbolizes building strong foundations and is a great way to celebrate a new member of the family. 20% of the purchase price for this bangle will support March of Dimes. March of Dimes helps moms have full-term pregnancies and researches the problems of premature births and birth defects to save babies’ lives.
The newly redesigned Living Water bangle encases a bright blue drop of water in a heart. Symbolizing community and love, it reminds us that we must work together to quench the thirst of the world. 20% of the purchase price of this bracelet will go to Living Water International. This charity works to provide clean, safe drinking water throughout the world.
We love all of the new designs Alex and Ani added in their Mother’s Day Collection. We think that mom will love them as well! Stop by Versant to see these new additions in person. These pieces are all limited in quantity- give us a call if you would like us to hold something for you: http://versantjewelry.com/index/contact-us/

The classic Valentine’s Day gift features hearts- and lots of them. A symbol of love and affection, the heart design is the centerpiece of many Valentine’s Day collections.
One of our favorite new Valentine’s Day collections this year comes from Pandora. The Limited Edition gift sets available for the holiday are always a special selection, and this year’s additions offer beautiful curated sets, a stunning presentation, and a great price.
For those looking to start a Pandora bracelet or add a new bracelet to an existing collection, the Open Hearts bracelet gift set is a great gift idea. This set comes with a silver Pandora bracelet with sparkling heart clasp, two heart-adorned clips, and the new Encased in Love charm. The Encased in Love charm has a faceted cerise pink bead surrounded by an openwork silver heart motif- it is one of our favorite new charms! With its red leather heart-shaped Pandora travel case, this is truly a beautiful way to deliver a gorgeous gift.
If you are looking to add a special charm to a growing Pandora collection, the Lovestruck charm is a great choice. Not only is it a limited edition selection that will only be available for a short time, but it has a great combination of bright enamel, lustrous silver, and a touch of sparkle. This charm is also presented in a red leather box, making it stand out from other selections.
For those looking to warm up their Pandora collection with a little gold, the new Love You Forever and Love Script charms are must-haves. We love these new designs, which are accented with clear CZs and a touch of 14K gold. Really want to make a statement? Pair some two-tone charms with the new sparkling 14K clasp bracelet!
Another brand that has a heavy focus on heart designs is Brighton Collectibles. The heart is represented as their signature logo. Just as love takes many forms, so do the hearts in Brighton’s collections. Some look like hand-crafted masterworks, some are lacy and modern, and still others are studded with Swarovski crystals.
What makes buying Brighton even better at this time of year? Until February 10th, you get a free Sweetheart tote when you spend $100 or more!
Alex and Ani has added an extensive new Valentine’s Day collection this year as well. We love the Alive with Love Gift Set to stun your sweetheart. This five bracelet set, available in the Rafaelian Silver and Rafaelian Gold finishes, includes three pink beaded bracelets, the newly designed Love bangle, and a crystal heart bangle only available for a limited time in this set!
In the single bangle options, Alex and Ani has also redesigned the Cupid’s Heart bangle. This new design has a more three-dimensional feel and features cupid’s bow in the heart. The new Product(RED) Heart of Strength Charity By Design bangle is also a statement-making Valentine’s Day piece. Featuring a bold red crystal, this bangle provides 20% of the purchase price to the Global Fund to fight AIDS.
Everything’s Coming Up Rose Gold
Does your sweetheart love the Valentine’s Day season but doesn’t want to be showered with hearts? Rose gold is a great choice for a gift that catches the feeling of the season without being overtly Valentine’s Day themed. Not only is the soft pink tone romantic, but it has become the popular choice for everybody’s new favorite metal.
For those just starting to collect rose gold pieces, we like pieces that combine a rose gold finish with silver and sparkling stones. Ti Sento Milano makes some beautiful rose gold accented pieces that use this trendy metal in a classic style, making them instant favorites.
Freida Rothman Jewelry also features rose gold in some of their stacking bangles. Set with sparkling CZs, these pieces look great paired with some of her sterling and oxidized sterling bangles.
For a more delicate look that still packs some serious sparkle, Officina Bernardi has a lot of rose-gold finished pieces. With their patented cut, this sterling silver jewelry reflects light like it is studded with stones. They offer a wide range of necklace lengths, making them ideal for layering.
Officina Bernardi’s elegant sparkling bracelets that look gorgeous by themselves or stacked for some added drama.
If your sweetheart is an Alex and Ani enthusiast, there is a lot to be excited about on the rose gold front with this year’s Valentine’s Day collection. The stand-out piece in our minds is the Because I Love You set of three in the shiny rose gold finish. Alex and Ani has also released some Limited Edition single bangles as part of this collection. We love the sweet Frog Prince and Romero Britto XO Bangle in the shiny rose finish. Pair them with one of the Limited Edition shiny rose finish beaded bangles for a set that is sure to stun!
Valentine’s Day may have the reputation of being flashy and full of grand gestures, but the celebration of love is often appreciating the moments spent together as a couple and as a family. A great way to commemorate these moments are pieces that symbolize family bonds and the many positive things that she brings to the world.
Waxing Poetic charms are a great way to personalize a jewelry gift with sentiments, symbols representing children or other loved ones, and other inspirations. The newly released 2017 charms include some meaningful new virtues in the Word Play collection.
The new Aim True arrow is also a great choice for Valentine’s Day. Whether it symbolizes cupid’s arrow or other ambitions, this charm is meant to inspire you to aim high, far, dear, and true.
With a versatile selection of sizes, metals, and styles, Waxing Poetic makes it easy to create a one-of-a-kind piece that captures the heart of a person. We like using different sized medallions with some three dimensional shapes to add variety. Mix initials, birthstones, and an inspirational sentiment to curate a heartfelt collection!
Another way to celebrate what makes the person you love unique is the Pandora Essence collection. Unlike the traditional Pandora charms, which celebrate the moments of one’s life, the Essence collection celebrates various virtues within a person. With virtues such as dedication, generosity and passion, this is a great way to honor the things you love about her. These beads will stay in place on the Essence bracelet and resemble natural stones and sparkling beads, making it look less like a traditional charm bracelet.
In addition to the flexible sterling bracelet, the Essence collection offers a thin wire bangle (great for stacking!) and a silver necklace. We think 45cm necklace looks elegant as a delicate statement with a single charm. A set of silver charms with additional interchangeable charms for a pop of color is also a great option that offers her some versatility!
Another way to pay tribute to your personal love story is to honor the place where you have shared important moments. For those local to Bethlehem, we love the latitude and longitude cuff bracelets and bar necklaces we have had custom made for us from Lat & Lo. The pieces have the coordinates of our hometown with the Star of Bethlehem inscribed with our city name on the back.
Want to bring that special into your home? Check out our exclusive local map prints! Available framed or unframed, these are also a great statement when you showcase two places side-by-side to show how your two histories combined to make the family that you are today.
You can’t go wrong with the classics. With clean lines and a touch of sparkle, these pieces will never go out of style. For the lady who wants a signature item that can be worn on any occasion, a classic piece is a great investment.
One of our favorite jewelry makers that offer a classic look is Gabriel and Company. Known best for their fine jewelry and stunning engagement rings, their sterling silver fashion line brings the same attention to detail and quality. Accented with natural stones and small diamonds, these pieces can be worn with a sweater and jeans or dressed up with a little black dress.
For those looking for something original and meaningful to wear every day, we love POP Diamond Jewelry. This 0.10 carat diamond on a colored cord gives a touch of luxury to our everyday lives. Inspired by protective eye bracelets, POP stands for Power of Protection. In many cultures, a cord is worn on the wrist after being earned through charitable deeds. Keeping with this tradition, POP donates a portion of proceeds from the sale of their bracelet to charitable causes. Looking good and doing good at the same time- it doesn’t get better than that!
Our last pick for the traditional girl is a tried and true Valentine’s Day classic- a piece of fine jewelry! If you are looking for a true classic piece of jewelry, gold and white gold jewelry set with gemstones present a gift that will last through a lifetime. For the girl who is loyal to a few pieces of jewelry instead of changing with the many trends, a good piece of jewelry is a great investment. Unlike sterling silver, which is a soft metal not durable enough for daily wear through many years, gold jewelry will become an heirloom piece because it is made to last.
When choosing a fine jewelry piece, we love simple styles with a touch of sparkle. A tried and true shape, such as a starburst or a circle, and clear stones will remain classics and survive the changing fashions.
Turn Up the Romance
Are you looking for a gift for the girl who lives for a good love story? Does she sigh at the sight of hearts and get teary-eyed when thinking about the movie The Notebook? It’s time to turn up the romance!
An iconic symbol of romance is the city of Paris. Bring the City of Love home with our vintage French photos. Le Baiser, or “The Kiss”, reminds us of an old black and white romantic movie.
Another great romantic find is our WinterLemon jewelry. Locally handmade, they have some gorgeous pieces that use natural stones, pearls, and vintage pieces. We love these necklaces that feature antique lockets- they are truly one-of-a-kind!
For a more delicate look, Ila and I lockets also evoke a sense of romance. These petite white gold pieces are perfect to keep safe precious memories. Their antique styling and elegant profile make them great bridal gifts as well!
The trendsetter likes to be on the cutting edge of fashion and loves a piece that stands out from the rest of the crowd. This means thinking outside the box when it comes to traditional textures, metals, and styles to find something unique.
We think Julie Vos is a great start for a trendsetter who wants to push the edges of classic but doesn’t want to commit to a piece that might go quickly out of style. Julie Vos jewelry is finished with 24K gold over for a bright, warm finish that is more exciting than a traditional silver. Their innovative use of natural stones and inspiration from nature and classical architecture make them stand out in a crowd.
We love the Milano 6-stone bangles stacked with different stones- grab a few neutrals then add a pop of color! These bangles also look great stacked with some of the thin textured gold bangles or a wider piece accented with similar stones.
Julie Vos’ long, layering necklaces have been heavily featured in the fashion blogs, especially the Coin Pendant.
For a statement piece, we are head over heals for the new Fern Cuff. Inspired by natural motifs, this piece has beautiful detailing. The openwork design gives this larger cuff a lighter feel, keeping it from looking too heavy.
Another fun fashion line for the trendsetter is Freida Rothman Jewelry. Freida Rothman uses metal and textures in an innovative way to make pieces with a metropolitan feel. We love the way her use of oxidized silver makes the sparkling stones stand out! This set of stacking rings is one of our favorite pieces from her line- wear them all together for a statement, or separate them for days when you want a more delicate look.
The Contemporary Deco line within Freida Rothman is a great way for the silver lover to get a more edgy piece. Using a matte sterling silver accented with darker oxidized silver, these pieces are light and bright but still have a unique quality.
For the trendsetter that is really looking for a head turning piece, Freida’s Rose D’Or collection is a statement-making find. With a crushed stone look, these pieces play with sparkle in a non-traditional way. We love the Radiance Medallion!
Our last choice for the trendsetter is the hottest fad on the necklace front right now- chokers! A lot of our favorite jewelry lines have come out with a choker option, the result of which is a lot of fun and different looks available.
The Paris Bracelet offers a great choker made from couture stretch ribbon, making it easily adjustable and comfortable to wear.
Both Pandora and WinterLemon also have beautiful choker options. Pandora’s woven fabric choker can be worn by itself or with 1-5 charms. We love the look of accenting it with a single delicate pendant- the new birthstones are a great choice! Our WinterLemon chokers range from classic, with natural stones and diamond accented pendants, to the on-trend with freshwater pearls, leather, and lariats.
Valentine’s Day isn’t just for sweethearts! We have a lot of sweet options to help moms and dads spoil the younger crowd and show them that the love of family is just as important as romantic love.
Our upstairs home and lifestyle boutique, Haven, has some great gifts for younger girls. We love these witty pouches as a sweet gift to tell a young girl that you are thinking about her on Valentine’s Day. With sayings that affirm that who she is and what she does is beautiful, they are a great gift for any girl.
You can also find some fun decorations for a young girl’s room, like this canvas with the quote “I Love You to the Moon and Back” or its companion, “You are my Sunshine.”
Another fun gift for a younger girl is Alex and Ani’s updated Kindred Cord collection. These cord bracelets are a little more delicate than the traditional collection, which makes them great for smaller wrists. Adjustable through the use of the black cord, they feature fun tokens and heartfelt symbols in sterling silver.
For the teen girl, Pandora rings are all the rage. These sweet sterling silver rings have a lot of options for Valentine’s Day. Their Forever Love and One Love rings feature small hearts and are equally cute worn by themselves or stacked. The My Princess and Heart’s Tiara rings have been very popular with young girls. We love them as a sweet gift from a dad to his princess!
