Need some inspo? Here are the pieces that have got our pulses racing and how to work them into your look...
Layer like a pro
When it comes to layering necklaces, mix pendants and charms on delicate chains, varying in length, but don't allow one to stand out more than another. We love PANDORA's simple hearts of PANDORA necklace, perfect for adding a little sparkle to your everyday outfits.
Opt for mismatched earrings
This season is all about ear adornments and the newest trend to tap into is crystal and two-tone offerings. We've got our eye on these tiny love heart stud earrings, ideal with minimalist studs if you've got multiple ear piercings. Don't be afraid to mix metals too – PANDORA has a brilliant selection of silver sterling, 14ct gold and rose-hued pieces that look dreamy when paired together.
Master the stacking trend
Ring stacking is the easiest way to reboot your look and is a great way of showing off your collection - both old and new buys. Opt for at least one gem-encrusted design on each hand, like this ribbon of love ring, and mix 'n' 4match with 14ct gold and two-tone bands, plus coloured gem stones on other fingers to master the look. Pile them up on you please!
If you like our picks, why not create an online edit of your favourite PANDORA pieces to help your partner ace this year's Valentine's gift? There's even a second opinion tool that allows your friends to give their seal of approval. What are you waiting for?
