Reclaimed circuit board gifts help to say Happy Valentine's day

The pressure of Valentine's Day shouldn't crash anyone's operating system. So what kind of gift can she buy to convince her special guy that she is the eternally virus-free software download of his dreams? Techies will swoon this Valentine's Day since they can now wear their devotion around their necks as Motherboard Gifts & More announces a shimmering new line of sterling silver jewelry.

Dog tags and pendants in sterling silver jewelry casings expand the constellation of holiday gifts now offered by the Chicago-area firm that has made its name manufacturing high-end holiday gifts since 1991. What's in a name? In this case, everything: each product is created from reclaimed circuit motherboards originally designed for computers, televisions and other electronics. Ideal for most any Valentine's Day budget.

The Motherboard dog tags are an elegant upgrade of the military-style name plate. Inlaid green and copper circuitry brilliantly contrasts the sterling silver jewelry casing with soldered bale and 20" sterling silver 2 mm ball chain which is included. The dog tag measures 2 ½" top to bottom and is 1 1/8" wide. A complimentary engraving of up to three initials is available on the smooth, polished back surface of the plate. Price: $109.95

The pendants are available in two shapes: heart and circle. Both dazzle the eye with green and copper circuitry encased in sterling silver. Each will compliment casual or business attire. The heart pendant measures 1 1/8" L x 1" W. The circle pendant is 1 3/8" top to bottom. Price: $89.95.

Think Motherboard's jewelry is not an instant link to a techie's firewall protected heart? Then consider this: all these products are created from reclaimed circuit boards originally designed for computers, televisions, and other electronics.

Circuit boards may suggest sharp edges and bumpy surfaces, a Valentine's day turn-off. Not so of Motherboard products. Each is created from material never marred by circuitry soldering. In fact, the boards were never actually installed because they are defective, deemed obsolete, or part of an unclaimed order (i.e., unrequited love. Sob.). Another reason the product line is romantically charged: the colors and patterns of circuit boards vary, making each gift item virtually one-of-a-kind. Just like your Valentine's techie.

For now, skip the lingerie come-on (later, ladies, later!), and jolt your Valentine's techie out of cyberspace and into your heart with a Motherboard gift. All items are created from recycled material that otherwise would be tossed into a landfill. It's the perfect metaphor for Valentine's Day: No Heart Left Behind.
