Bling for engineers

-February 07, 2013

Wondering what to get that special someone for Valentine’s Day?

Jewelry is among the more popular gifts to express love. But a bland silver necklace or gold band can be so impersonal and boring, especially when you’re looking for a gift for someone as creative as an engineer.

Here are a few inspired pieces for men and women that may shine as bright as your love (or at least the upcycled materials they are made of).
