There’s someone out there for everyone – even if you need a pickaxe, a compass, and night goggles to find them.
– Harris K. Telemacher, L.A. Story
There’s an extra charge of energy in the dry L.A. air during February, if you know how to look for it. It’s pulsing in the freeway capillaries crisscrossing the sprawl, in among the headlights and taillights that course through the city’s veins. It’s visible in the hallucinatory glow of the smoggy sunsets, and you can smell it in the Santa Ana winds. We happen to think it’s a funny little thing called love. Yes, even here in LaLaLand, we are susceptible to Cupid’s arrow. This Valentine’s Day, we urge you to capture that love and to share it with someone special… even if that someone special is you. Read on for our gift suggestions that will set your lover’s heart on fire.
There has never been a symbol quite as enduring as the heart, and we think it’s because it is a beautiful and sensuous shape – curvaceous and organic, with a single sharp point – that perfectly captures something about that crazy emotion that the word itself can’t quite convey. When rendered in silky, shimmering gold and glittering diamonds, this little symbol says even more. Love is a precious thing, and so are the pieces in our Valentine’s Day collection. Pick the perfect gift for your love from our dainty assortment of necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings, many of them made right here in Los Angeles.
If you’re local, don’t forget to stop in to see what other heartfelt treasures we have collected. Scattered throughout the store are heart milagros large and small, gold and silver. Slip one into your lover’s palm to bring passion, pleasure and longevity into your life together. Pair a little heart with an antique skeleton key, which can be strung on a cord: tangible proof that you hold the key to unlocking each other’s love.
And of course, nothing makes the heart flutter like a handwritten card. Drop by the store to pick up a hand-glittered valentine, a handmade deckled paper heart or swallow, or a simple postcard of kissing lovers. Throw in a bar of smooth dark Belgian chocolate (an age-old aphrodisiac) for a true feast of the senses.
While you’re visiting us, don’t forget to check out our two sale sections. In the front of the store, we have a selection of scarves, bags, socks and other accessories at 40% off their original price, and up at the counter we have a treasure chest of jewelry at 30% off its original price. You might find an extra little something for your valentine, or even for yourself.
Don’t forget to check out the website, which has received a little spring makeover. We’ve added several subcategories to our menu, making it easier to find what you’re looking for; you can now shop our jewelry by designer as well as by type, and if you’re on a budget you can find jewelry under $100. We plan on focusing more on our fabulous jewelry collection online, so you can expect to see more delicate pieces from independent designers featured there in the coming months. Also, if you’re a local customer and want the ease, speediness and comfort of shopping from home, we now offer in-store pickup as an option. Simply enter the code LOCALPICKUP at checkout, and the shipping cost will be deducted from your order. When you drop by, everything will be packaged up and ready to go.
Happy Valentine’s Day from Fran, Holly, Alexa and Olivia. Whether you are near or far, an old friend of the store or a curious new customer, we love you!
