Her Valentine’s Day gift ideas are designed to stir the heart and she has options for every budget. Check them out:

Why you’ll love it: This modern take on freshwater pearls offers a chic update to every lady’s jewelry box. Contemporary career ladies love the many options of this multifunctional piece: double it up and wear it as a choker, wrap it several times around the wrist for a multi-strand bracelet or leave it long and loose in a Coco Chanel rope style. “Pearls are the ultimate classis – they look stunning on their own or layered with other pieces,” says Irma.

Why you’ll love it: This is a gift that keeps on giving. Why not celebrate each milestone with a new variation? Elegant band rings embedded with expertly cut diamonds can be worn separately or in stacks, so she can alter her look according to her whim — or outfit. “Diamonds are always sure to please, and they are an ideal complement for any look, whether worn for day or night,” says the Mayors Style Expert.
