Valentine’s Day Jewelry for the Dark Romantic

We like it a little hardcore, and so does fashion. Jewelry designers are greeting that demand with edgy luxe accessories that are bold and beautiful. Let everyone know just how hard you really hit it with some of these most spectacular statement pieces.

The stunning vertebrae cuff by Jennifer Fisher, $1,250 at Barneys New York, is four inches of gold-polished brass and makes a striking arm ornamentation when it accompanies jeans and a black sweater now, or a sheath dress against bare skin as spring approaches. Dressed up or down, wear someone else’s spine on your sleeve and watch heads turn.

Betsey’s small skull stud earrings, $30, are a decidedly more delicate approach to the deceased. From her Dark Forest Collection, the feminine little things feature heart-shaped eye sockets, opalescent gems and a sweet black bow.

Alternately, you could always wear the oversized Alexander McQueen ring, $290, from Saks Fifth Avenue, adorned with a whimsical bee in Swarovski crystals.

Or invest in a quality umbrella with striking skull knob by the luxury Italian Pasotti, pictured below on Italian fashion blogger Chiara from The Blonde Salad.

For a slightly less macabre approach, we look again at the designs of Jennifer Fisher. The brass bullet cuff, $915, is two inches wide of pure hardcore.

These pieces work for any season and countless occasions, and just like a bullet, it only takes one.
