Note to those with significant others: Valentine’s Day is a mere few days away. Cue: take stock of the latest collection from Elsa O. The Lebanese accessories designer (fun fact: she is the sister of Assaad Osta, one-half of Azzi & Osta) just launched her second collection, titled Ya Leil Ya Ein (Arabic for “nostalgia), and it’s largely inspired by an illustrated book of the same name. Featuring bejeweled moon earrings, evil-eye brooches, and crystal-encrusted sun motifs, each piece is meticulously handcrafted by artisans in Lebanon.
Those seeking a Valentine’s Day gift for a loved one will take a liking to the heart-shaped baubles in the eponymous labels’ collection. Featuring a necklace, earrings, bracelets, and a gold-plated, glitter-infused brooch that you can pin onto your cuff, you can literally wear your heart on your sleeve. It would undoubtedly make a heartfelt gift. After all, a little shine goes a long way.
The Elsa O Ya Leil Ya Ein collection is available now online.
