Sweet Treats

February 4, 2009


Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, and Portero is really the perfect place to shop. Low auction starting prices mean that even if your budget is a bit smaller than in years past, we have a huge selection of pieces that won’t break the bank. Speaking of affordable goodies, we’re excited to premiere our brand new collection from fashion darlings M+J Savitt. Here’s some info on the company:

Started by Janis Savitt with her sisters Michelle and Wynne, the business was actually born in Savitt’s bedroom while she was still living at home and going to college. The premise has always been the mix of jewelry and fashion, and the designers have said that accessories should be “wearable, luxurious, feminine, timeless and new-looking.” While the ultra-glam high-end of the line can be mighty pricey, we have managed to obtain a mix of pieces that bridge fun and glamour.

If you’re hoping to find a gift that only looks like you spent a million bucks, try one of the statement necklaces. Oversized neck pieces were all the rage on the runway this year, and choices like this M+J Savitt Gold Plated Onyx Bead Necklace or this M+J Savitt Vermeil Tiger’s Eye Bead Chain 3-row Necklace are totally on target for spring.

If you’re looking for a jewel that has love written all over it, click over to our selection of Haute Couture Hearts. While some of the pieces are quite literal, like this Ewa Solarska 18k Yellow Gold 0.87 ctw Diamond Heart Necklace, others, like this H.Stern 18k Yellow Gold Diamond 3-Row Heart Band Ring, are more discreet.
