Hip hearts and hot lips for a cool Valentine

Hearts are hip at Joe shop and, with Valentines day fast approaching, now is the time to really enjoy this emblematic symbol of love. There’s no need to merely settle for the classic red heart of years gone by. Why not have fun with gorgeous striped textile heart earring, bright ‘petit polka dot’ hearts, filigree metal and gleaming enamel?

Hearts come as tiny shiny stud earrings in red,black,pink and white or as ‘miss-matched’, ‘best friend’ studs – a perfect pairing. For a super cool look try line art heart earrings and heart hands, both in matt silver or gold finish. ‘Outline’ styles are both arty and elegant with rings and earrings in minimalist metal.

A more subtle approach still, is the ‘heartbeat’ trio of ring, bracelet and choker, an image of particular poignancy in these difficult days of loss and love. ‘Love letters’, in a similar genre, is a crazy hoop earring with the ‘L’ word cleverly work into what appears at first to be an abstract looping design. Again, all come in a choice of shiny silver or gold finish metal.

Socks feature glorious rainbow hearts in a black or grey option. Classic red on black are firm favourites at any time of the year and pastel hearts are a new addition.

Arty hearty has to be the fabulous ‘Keith Haring’ inspired ‘untitled (heart) sock and ‘pop art crowd’. An iconic artist giving this iconic symbol yet another twist! Check out the other art themed socks in the range for all your favourite artists. From Warhol, Van Gogh, Monet and Klimt to Vermeer, Botticelli and Leonardo; we have a veritable gallery in store!

Of course, Hearts are not the only symbol of love. What could be more romantic than the gift of red roses. This year choose something longer lasting to celebrate the day with a choice of sheer red rose socks, satin earrings and a great selection of jewellery in materials ranging from satin to resin. So, take heart…we have you covered!
