I've been a fan of Brooklyn-based jewelry line, Bittersweets since they started designing their line in 2002. There pieces have always been the perfect mix of cheeky, creepy and cute, and they always maintain a sense of humor without being overly hipster-ironic. I love their recent exploration of their "sweeter side" with these romantic pieces: a heart pierced by an arrow, two sides of a human heart, and a set of rings that read "Live long and prosper." They're perfect for Valentine's Day (I know it's a full month off, but I'm a closet romantic, and I'm already planning). And if you're looking for something a little more serious, they make custom wedding rings too.
