Valentine’s Day, known to many of us as “singles awareness day,” is an annual reminder of the past year in love. While the cliché Valentine’s Day consists of a candlelit dinner, a dozen roses, and a box of chocolates gifted on a silver platter from your amour, you definitely don’t need someone else in order to partake. Take the day to celebrate self-love and treat yourself to a massage, manicure, or pair of diamond (or diamante) earrings, like glitzy baubles from Dannijo or a tanzanite heart ring from The Last Line. For inspiration, look to Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings” music video and shop our alternative engagement ring guide if you’re in the market to gift yourself something major. As Meghan Markle wrote to herself before she became a Princess, “I think you need to be your own Valentine.” Shop below and buy yourself something way better than a box of chocolates. You deserve it.
