Jeanne Beker picks the best accessories for Valentine’s Day

Hearts are all a flutter this time of year, so we got Jeanne Beker to seek out accessories in the season’s hottest colour — rose gold — just in time for Valentine’s Day

(A) Parvati’s pick
Penwarden, 631 Mt. Pleasant Rd., $2,860
“There’s a great weight to this kunzite gemstone and it’s so beautifully set in the rose gold. The chain’s the perfect length, so it will hit you in the right place.”

(B) Shipshape
Archives, 1275 Bay St., $796
“This is just a great bag because it’s so malleable. Roll it up into a fabulous little bag in the palm of your hand, fold it into an envelope clutch or use as a tote. As quirky as it is, it’s also quite practical.”

(C) Audio style
Frends at Indigo, 8705 Yonge St., $249.95
“These headphones are definitely up my alley. What an elegant, cool set — you shouldn’t wear any old pair on your head. A great piece to travel with.”

(D) Oh, l’amour
Van Rijk, 90 Eglinton Ave. E.,  Price upon request
“That’s a real, real wow. Romantic statement brooches are so hot these days. It’s a vintage piece, but there’s a modernity to it. Just imagine the grand dame who wore this on her collar…”

(E) Good fortune
JoshuaDAVID, 2525 Yonge St., $355
“This is such a stunning little pendant. It’s really a very modern locket that’s partially transparent, designed to put a fortune cookie fortune in it!”

(F) Prim ’n’ proper
Ted Baker, Yorkdale Shopping Centre, $155
“I collect evening bags — you never throw them out. This little silky print bag with rose gold handles has a very chic feelto it. Would give a great lift to a plain dress.”

(G) Modern love  
Apple Store, CF Fairview mall, $449
“We love the Apple Watch for all its possibilities. This rose gold one adds an element of soft femininity to a hard techy piece. A beautiful fashion statement.”

(H) Goddess of love 
Jenny Bird at Zane, 124 Cumberland St., $225
“This is really beautiful with the delicacy of the chains between the metal bars. What a great glam armourvibe to this — it’s a total wow.”

(I) Wingin’ it
Sophia Webster at DAVIDS, Bayview Village, $670
“You’ve got wings on your feet — you’re a goddess! These are fun and romantic and really sensual. Great for a shoe collector — you’d have a shoe like this forever.”

(J) Razzle-dazzle
Zane, 124 Cumberland St., $40
“You get a lot of bang for your buck with this. It’s got a great Deco feel to it. You carry something like this with your evening gown. Great fun.”

(K) Serpentine lines
Mark Lash, 9033 Leslie St., Unit 8, $8,980
“Oh, these little earrings are so delicate. From a distance it looks like you’re wearing hoops but up close they are little snakes with these tiny little diamonds. Spectacular.”

(L) Eyes on you
Cutler and Gross, 758 Queen St. W., $612
“We adore these thick frames with the rose gold on the temples. The lenses are kind of rosy, so you’re looking at the world with rose gold-coloured glasses!”

(M) Lady luck
Intermix, 130 Bloor St. W., $319
“It’s rose gold-plated with an enamel bar and has a very unusual kind of shape. It’s bold, yet it’s not that heavy looking.”

(N) Cocktail bling
L–R: Colour Couture,, $499; Varouj, 515 Eglinton Ave. W., $5,900; Thomas Sabo, Yorkdale, $664 
“I love the romantic simplicity of this garnet ring; pink quartz and diamonds, really striking; romantic finger armour.”

(O) Highfalutin
Topshop, Yorkdale Shopping Centre, $90
“I have a pair of shoes like this from the ’40s. These are for the girls that can’t get enough of the vintage look. They would really take your outfit to a whole new level.”
