If you’re flat out of ideas for this year’s Valentine Day, you can never really go wrong with jewellery. Here are just a few of the most interesting accessories I found.
Spell out your love and happiness with chemistry
What is love? It’s an age-old question with likely no satisfying answer. What seems certain is that nature has developed an irresistible cocktail of chemicals to help us fall in love (and hopefully pass on our genes).
It’s one of love’s most important chemicals that may explain why when you’re falling in love, your new lover keeps popping into your thoughts. In one study, researchers discovered that serotonin levels of new lovers were equivalent to the low serotonin levels of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder patients.
The initial stages of falling for someone activates your stress response, increasing your blood levels of adrenalin and cortisol. This has the charming effect of making you sweat, making your heart race and your mouth go dry when you unexpectedly bump into your new love.
The octopus is the only animal that has a portion of its brain (three quarters, to be exact) located in its (eight) arms. Without a central nervous system, every arm “thinks” as well as “senses” the surrounding world with total autonomy, and yet, each arm is part of the animal. Offer this gift to that special someone.
She, as a true scientist, has looked inside your soul so many times and made you feel complete and safe. These earrings are for the special girl that always looks past all the defects, and sticks close to you whatever happens.
For biologists, veterinarians, or simply all animal lovers. Pretty cute, right?
