Now Through Valentine’s Day, We Give You Our Hart…Earrings or Necklace, That Is

A few months ago, we were lucky enough to have Hart Hagerty make an in-store appearance. I had never met her before, but felt like I knew her from her Instagram feed. What I imagined in my mind is exactly who she is: kind, funny, a true free spirit who is easy to be around. I realized something else after she spent a few hours in my store. She is an amazing storyteller, so it only makes sense that her jewelry also tells a story. She is a true romantic. Recently married, she gushed about her husband. These stories are what led her to create her series of heart-shaped and -themed pendants called The Lover Collection.

The My Love pendant is my personal favorite. Victorian-inspired, it features lucky symbols on the front and the words “My Love” on the back. The Follow Your Bliss Necklace features a signet that belonged to an Italian painter with the last name Corregia. Regio happens to mean royal in Italian and the F.Y.B. (“follow your bliss”) is a reminder to follow your soul’s path and remember you’re the queen of your own universe. The collection is all demi-fine (that is, gold-plated brass) and coated with a special ecoating so it will never tarnish.

Since Valentine’s Day is upon us I decided what better designer to help us celebrate Valentine’s Day than Hart?! So here is your chance to grab one of her classic top knot earrings or a pendant necklace from her Lover Collection, of course.

I spent the first part of my career as a copy-writer who helped elected officials brag about their support for entrepreneurs. Then I decided to get off the printed page and do it myself. The Shoe Hive made a splash on the fashion scene in Washington, and was named the region’s best shoe store in its first year. Fourteen years later, I have tripled the store’s size and also opened a sister store, The Hive. At The Hive, we offer clothing lines that are sophisticated and approachable like Rag & Bone, Tibi, Raquel Allegra, Ulla Johnson and Veronica Beard. We have tried to fill our racks with clothing you will want to wear all the time, elevated basics that are worth the investment.

Heard the buzz? The Shoe Hive & The Hive are a pair of luxury boutiques in Old Town Alexandria. Featuring both big name designers like Rag & Bone and Stuart Weitzman and smaller brands like AGL and L'Agence, our unique selection and impeccable service are what set us apart.
