CNN —  

Valentine’s Day is an opportunity to treat your loved ones to something special. For your significant other, why not make that special something a stunning piece of jewelry?

While we love chocolate and flowers as gifts, there’s something special about receiving a piece of jewelry on Valentine’s Day. For one, it’s a great reminder of your S.O. each time you wear it. And two, it’ll last much longer — because we all know those chocolates will be gone the moment you open the box.

Here are the best-selling and top-rated items from jewelry brands we trust:
