Say it with rose gold this Valentine’s Day. These rose-gold essentials are handmade using our sustainable, proprietary alloy; a fine metal with a neutral blush hue that makes our pieces look especially amazing on all skin tones.

1. THREE-DIAMOND NECKLACE_ Each of the diamonds in this piece are certified ethical and set in eco-friendly 14k rose gold bezels. An adjustable chain makes this piece perfect for layering. Our Three-Diamond Necklace is an especially meaningful Valentine’s Day gift for anyone with three children, or if you’re celebrating three years together. $750; danawaldenbridal.com/three-diamond

3. ABINA TEAL SAPPHIRE STUDS_ Go classic without going “basic.” Skip the standard this Valentine’s Day and opt for our claw-pronged teal sapphire studs.

“The Abina studs are heirlooms in the making,” Rad says. “They are substantial in size and each natural teal sapphire is like a snowflake, with its own unique color zones and exceptional sparkle.”

6. HAYLEE CIGAR BAND RING_ Handmade in solid 14k gold, this 12mm ring with fluid taper has an androgynous vibe and makes a BOLD statement. “Haylee looks quite stunning when worn on the ring finger or middle finger of the right hand, opposite a diamond solitaire on the left,” Rad says. $1550; danawaldenbridal.com/haylee
