Valentine's Day shopping: Erica Anenberg's lovey-dovey charm jewelry
When it comes to jewelry, it's hard to find chic, bold collections that won't break the bank -- the market caters heavily to the Forever 21 and Cartier customers, respectively, leaving few trend-right options in the mid-priced arena.
Which is why L.A. resident Erica Anenberg's eponymous line of gold and gold-plated baubles -- sold at Maxfield and Kitson, among other places — has become a go-to for jewelry buffs looking to bling it up without breaking the bank.
And Anenberg's collection of price-friendly bracelets, rings and necklaces is full of solid options for Valentine's Day gifting. Because if you spend too-too much, you might freak her out.
Among our favorite V-Day-appropriate pieces are the Love Block Twosome ring, $98, a sweet play on brass knuckles (Anenberg pioneered the twosome ring); the 14-karat gold-plated cherry enamel heart medallion on a red patent leather cuff, $88, a great choice for daring dressers; the 14-karat gold-plated enameled brass foxy candy heart charm earrings, $98, which hearken back to the message-laden heart candies we all ate and traded as a kid; and the 14-karat gold-plated Braille "love is blind" necklace, $146, a decidedly more subtle piece that we can see giving to a new squeeze and letting them work out what it says — only, of course, if you're confident in his or her mutual amour.
