Valentine’s day is a day celebrated around the world as a day of love. Even though it is the second most popular day of the year to get engaged (according to WeddingWire), I don’t like to think of it as a day just for couples - I like to celebrate the love I have for my kids, friends and family also!

I decided to round out this post with a focus on ethical jewelry. Ethical jewelry is jewelry that is either fair-trade, made with recycled materials, handmade by artisans paid living wages, or brands that give back with each purchase.

There are so many ethical jewelry choices out there, but we decided to focus on some pieces that are inspiring, a little fun and a little bold!

We love inspirational words and quotes and what better place to put them on, than on jewelry!
