laurel denise silver cuffConfession: I’m not a huge fan of sentimental jewelry. You might notice that we don’t post a whole lot of it on Cool Mom Picks, and when we do, we’re pretty picky.

My high standards for jewelry isn’t such a bad thing, except it makes me particularly challenging to find gifts for–at least according to my husband. What he still hasn’t figured out yet, is that for me, simple and stunning is the key to my heart.

Cool Mom Picks Pick of the Year 2010That’s just how I’d describe this gorgeous heart cuff from Laurel Denise.
Made from brushed sterling silver or gold-vermeil and featuring an original
handwritten heart, this beautiful cuff says it all without being
pretentious. No bling required here. Just a sweet sentiment that I’d
love to wear on my own wrist.

Hear that, sweetie?

Of course, what he
doesn’t know is that I’ve already treated myself to one of her adorable leather bracelets. But since when was one bracelet enough? -Kristen
