BOO isn't just a word ghosts use when they want to frighten you; it's actually a term of endearment derived from the 18th century word "beau" and is used to describe a significant other. For jewelry designer and actor Waris Ahluwalia, the dapper don of the House of Waris, it's also the name of his latest jewelry collection. Debuting just in time for Valentine's Day, the "Boo" collection features gold necklaces, bracelets, and earrings intended to let you show your appreciation for your boo on your collarbone, wrist, or earlobes. The pieces will be available exclusively online at Moda Operandi and in-store at New York's Kirna Zabete and Miami's The Webster. Always a storyteller, be it through jeweled accessories, scarves, or in movies like The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and I Am Love, Waris asked a few of his creative friends and collaborators to produce short films entitled "You're my Boo" to go along with the launch. Lucky for us, we have an EXCLUSIVE one to show you!

Chances are you've seen Waris Ahluwalia before. Not only is he the dapper designer for the House of Waris—purveyors of fine jewelry and lustrous scarves—he's a sometime performer who has appeared in his friend Wes Anderson's films The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and The Darjeeling Limited. What's so interesting about Waris is that he didn't start out as a designer or fashion-oriented person, he simply enjoyed well-made products and sought to make his own after becoming interested in craftsmanship. His unusual jewelry designs run the gamut from plumage shapes encrusted in diamonds to geometrical bracelets and copper enamel necklaces featuring gold-adorned swallows. His work is stunning, to say the least, and we here at MTV Style want to show you what he (and his line!) are all about. Aside from making seriously heart-stopping pieces and being thoroughly inspired by music ("Currently I'm listening to the soundtrack for Drive every day. It's insanely good!" he says), there's a reason why Rihanna, Solange Knowles, and Chloe Sevigny are die-hard fans...and it may have something to do with these need-them-right-now skull earrings.

Or, you know, 18 karat gold bracelets adorned in mini diamonds. And so much more. You've got to see it all to believe it. Thus, right this way...

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
