Want the recipe for a perfect Valentine's gift that you can make for your loved one? Take some small stones of your choice, a sterling silver heart, and flat gravers polished to a mirror-like shine.

The beautiful heart pendant engraved by Diane Scalese is an example of a wonderful Valentine's Day gift from an engraver. The pendant is just about 1mm thick and measures approximately 2.5 mm x 2 mm. Whether you fashion a heart yourself or purchase the piece from a retailer, this small but handcrafted token has lots of love appeal.

Scalese has used nine small white stones across this design, but you can make your number a significant one; the years together, or a monogram of stones. The bright cuts add even more shine to these small stones, tying it together as an engraved gift to remember.
