Pre-Engagement Jewels

Buying jewels for the holidays (or any reason, really), is always a good idea (hint, hint, nudge, nudge). But, there comes a time in every relationship when the pressure is on to buy the ring and anything less might lead to break up disappointment. That is, unless the purchaser is shopping Alison Lou's latest collection.
Yes, just in time for the holidays (and proposals galore), Alison Lou's second collection serves up quirky pieces that say "I'm super in love," — without necessarily promising a lifetime commitment. And, hey, with adorable designs like faux bois "U + Me" engraved gold rings, "4 Ever" necklaces, and heart-encrusted bracelets, that's just fine with us. Click through to find the right gift your SO — or the other favorite person in your life (you know, yourself).
