1. Peggy Skemp Half Heart Necklace
Price: $120.00 at peggyskemp.com
What an ideal gift for your beloved! This tiny, realistic heart is available in two lovely views, dorsal or ventral. My own sweetheart is a cardiac nurse, and was amazed at the accurate details. It’s small and sweet, measuring three inches long, suspended from a delicate silver chain.
