Hearts are trending this season. It must be love on the brain. And not just because it’s Valentine’s Day.

For those fans of the CC In Love Heart Bag, you can get a similar look for way less from Chanel with their CC In Love Heart Coin Purse with Chain

The Dior Book Tote is quite the popular choice for travel, for carrying your books, and even for the essentials that every new Mom needs. Pst. If you have five minutes to spare, this post shares everything about how to authenticate Dior Book Totes. For the bargain hunters, a Book Tote may seem out of your league, but on the contrary, Mini Book Totes are quite attainable and make great gifts for Valentine’s Day. With all of their iconic embroidered patterns, there are so many Dior Book Tote options to choose from.

Fine Jewelry Under $3,000

We love bags, but what’s Valentine’s Day without jewelry? Immediately ‘wow’ them this season with these investment-worthy pieces under $3,000 – you can thank us later. 


Van Cleef & Arpels

Van Cleef & Arpels fine jewelry is a must-have brand to include in every ultra-luxury collection. Their Alhambra collection, if you’re not already acquainted with it, is simply iconic. You can shop Vintage Alhambra, Magic Alhambra, Sweet Alhambra, Pure Alhambra, Lucky Alhambra, and Byzantine Alhambra pieces. A number of Van Cleef & Arpels pendant necklaces from these collections all fall under $3,000. So what are you waiting for? The best part, Van Cleef & Arpels pieces are incredibly sought-after and retain, if not grow in value, in the resale market. Learn more about investments that hold their value here.


Tiffany is a great entry-level brand for those looking to build their fine jewelry collection. Tiffany also has a gorgeous assortment of heart-shaped jewelry, which, let us be real, are perfect gifts for anyone, especially for Valentine’s Day. Their Elsa Peretti Open Heart collection is a great choice, as are their iconic Return to Tiffany pieces.


Cartier is famously known for their LOVE collection and JUC collection. Under $3,000 may not guarantee a bracelet, but you can certainly get a LOVE ring. Bonus: with Cartier LOVE rings, you don’t have to worry about closing mechanisms (however, if you have a bracelet from one of these collections and need some guidance on how to fit them, here are helpful guides for the Cartier LOVE bracelet and how to fit your Cartier Juste Un Clou bracelet).

Luxury Watches Under $3,000

For the bargain hunter looking for a great deal on a luxury watch, FASHIONPHILE carries over 20+ designers known for their impeccable timepieces at unbeatable price points.  



Omega is known worldwide for its superior quality, craftsmanship, and sporty elegance. A brand of firsts, Omega was the first watch to make it on the moon and the first to become the official timepiece of the US Army and The Olympic Games. Due to its provenance in the watch industry, Omega makes a great gift for anyone who appreciates a luxury timepiece. For him, this Seamaster Diver is a great choice. A little over $3,000 is this Seamaster in giftable condition!


There are so many Cartier Tank watches to choose from. But a great watch for her this Valentine’s Day is the Cartier Tank Francaise. Cartier relaunched their Tank Francaise, which exhibits subtle modern upgrades to the previous model. This style is favored by many; it even was Princess Diana’s go-to watch in her later years.


Okay, so you’re not going to find too many pre-owned Rolex watches under $3,000. However, given that you have some wiggle room, a few Datejusts fall a little under $5,000, and these scream classy. Rolex makes a really smart investment. In fact, it has outperformed other traditional assets like gold and the stock market.

Whether you shop for handbags, jewelry, watches, or all three, just know that when shopping for your next Valentine’s gift online, you can filter your search results by your desired price point. These are just a few of the amazing investment pieces available to shop for at FASHIONPHILE.
