MATTERS OF THE HEART + Valentine’s Day Inspiration

For Garland Collection, jewelry is always personal. When my hubby proposed eight years ago (OK, more like begged. Misunderstanding protocol, he got down on both knees), we designed a crest for our wedding invitation incorporating our initials into an ornate, antique-style border. On our first anniversary, I had this wedding crest engraved into an unusual gold, oval plate to remind me of that special day.  This sentimental necklace soon became Garland Collection’s Signature pendant and a jewelry line was born. It seemed apropos that Garland Collection be named after my grandparents, Leona and Stanley Garland, who are not only my style icons, but high school sweethearts who enjoyed a more than 60-year love story.

With Valentine’s Day almost upon us, here is some go-to inspiration when it comes to matters of the heart:
