it's funny that you say you need a new word for love. while in argentina we kept describing everything as cute and the word completely lost meaning. we started to explain the exact details, contrasts, complements, and materials to express what we were thinking. i also think these are good descriptors: have a weakness for, relish, appetite for, idolize, adore, have a keenness for. but i have to say i also LOVE the jewelry!
