Years ago, I had to prove to my daughter just how old I was by asking her to explain what, exactly, “less than three” meant. She rolled her eyes and told me to tilt my head to the right… it’s a heart! Now I love the symbol, and use it all the time… so I was tickled the first time I saw the “less than three” jewelry by Metal Smitten, one of my favorite indie jewelry-makers. If you’re with me, and infatuated with this texty symbol of love, keep reading! Here are 7 cute jewelry pieces by Metal Smitten, most with that darling, sweet sentiment.
1 <3 Heart Charm Bracelet
The same sweet message that you’ve seen on all of the other pieces, now suspended from a gorgeous sterling silver charm bracelet! What a wonderful gift, don’t you think? It’s 7 inches long, with a sturdy lobster-claw clasp.
2 <3 Heart Ring
Declare your love for your own sweetheart with this dainty little band, custom-made of sterling silver in size 4 to 12, it is stamped with the text-chic “less than three” symbol. It’s thicker than most little rings, and so comfortable! Stack it or wear it alone, either way, it’s darling!
3 <3 Heart Dangle Earrings
These 10-millimeter sterling silver discs hang from a French hook, and each is stamped with the “less than three” I’ve come to love using as a signature in all of my text messages and emails. They hang about one inch long, so be sure to wear your hair up in a loose ponytail or bun so everyone can see them… and admire them! After all, the best part about wearing a cute jewelry piece by Metal Smitten is showing it off!
4 <3 Heart Stud Earrings
If you love the French hook dangle earrings above, but prefer studs, give these sweet little earrings a go instead! They feature the same 10-millimeter sterling silver disc with the same sweet sentiment. However, they sit close to your ear, and won’t get tangled in your tresses.
5 <3 Heart Necklace
This simple, sweet half-inch disc bears a message of modern love, the iconic “less than three” I’ve come to adore. It’s made of shining sterling silver and hangs by a jump ring from an 18-inch box chain. It’s ideal for layering with other silver necklaces… or just by itself as your everyday necklace. Either way, it's definitely a cute jewelry piece by Metal Smitten.
6 <3 Heart Dainty Ring
If you liked the band from item 2, but prefer something a little less subtle, this is the ring for you. It’s custom-made, in whole sizes from 4 to 9, from shiny sterling silver. The disc is slightly concave, stamped with the “less than three” symbol… I “less than three” it!
7 Sprouting Seedling Necklace
This necklace is so very cute, I had to include it even though it doesn’t feature the “less than three” symbol. Instead, this cute jewelry piece from Metal Smitten bears a simple sweet seedling, ideal for giving as a gift to the eco-warrior or gardener in your life. The half-inch pendant hangs from an 18-inch chain, and both are made of sterling silver.
Now that you’ve seen these cute jewelry pieces by Metal Smitten, you’re sure to start using the “less than three” symbol in all of your messages AND your outfits! Which of these sweet pieces of jewelry do you like best, and why? Do tell!
