Let Tiffany’s pink sapphires spark your desire this Valentine’s Day

Whether you’re head over heels or staunchly single, today’s lovelorn ladies don’t wait for a paramour to fill their jewel-box.  After all, lust waits for no one.  When Elsa Peretti first brought her signature fluid approach to Tiffany & Co. in 1974, she encouraged independent women to treat jewelry like a necessary indulgence.  “Diamonds by the Yard?  Why ever not?” Coming from an Italian stunner who claimed to rinse her hair with champagne just for shine, this makes perfect sense.  La bella Peretti’s latest temptation features pink sapphires set in sterling silver.  While it retains the unfussy appeal of all of her designs, we’re finding ourselves infatuated with the frivolity of these blush coloured stones.  Beau or not, there’s nothing like a sparkling new bijoux.

Tiffany & Co. “Diamonds by the Yard” pink sapphire and sterling silver necklace, $840. 1-800-265-1251.
