    Promising review: "Last year I was lucky enough to get a signed copy of Taylor Swift's album, Lover. As a huge Taylor fan, I knew I wanted to do something special after getting the autograph, and decided on a personalized necklace with the heart from the signed booklet.

It's one of my favorite necklaces now. While it may just look like a pretty heart necklace to some, I love wearing it and knowing that it holds such a sentimental meaning to me.

    The Fields Supply / Etsy

    Also judging them if "Cruel Summer" and "Death By A Thousand Cuts" aren't close to the top, but that's a conversation for another day.

    Promising review: "I recently ordered several Taylor Swift enamel pins from Etsy, including this gorgeous one that's perfect for my jean jackets. The design with the intersection sign of two streets referenced on Lover is so clever. And 'Cornelia Street' usually gets all the fan love, but I'm so glad to finally see a reference to 'I Think He Knows.' Is this the right place to go into a speech about how 'ITHK' is an amazing and under-appreciated song of female sexual empowerment? No? Anyway, I saw this and said 'I want you, bless my soul.'" —Katy Herman, BuzzFeed Editor
