Hearts and teddy bears might have a girlie connotation, but these designers definitely put a grown-up spin on them.


Earrings in 18-karat gold with pink tourmaline.

I love these earrings because the pink hearts make them sweet while the flames make them spicy. I think these stud earrings would be a great accent to a bold gold necklace and some stacked bangles for a casual, fun look.

These earrings are actually pretty tame for Exhibitionist designer Michael Spirito, who specializes in tattoo-inspired jewelry laden with skulls and bones.

Suggested retail price is $550.

Tous, (212) 219-1444

Forget pocket watches—I'd rather have this stainless steel and diamond-encrusted watch pendant. The watch houses a Japanese quartz movement, and the case features 359 brilliant-cut diamonds totaling 1.8 carats.

Since 1985, Tous has incorporated hearts into each collection, offering it as a "token of tenderness" for those who wear the pieces or give them as gifts.

Suggested retail price is $2,370.
