Hip-hip-hooray, it’s holiday season! It’s high time to start checking off the most important people on your gift-giving list. We’ve put together a new guide to help make your gift search as easy as possible. After all, there is no better gift than jewelry to make sure that this Christmas or Hanukkah is one that she’ll always remember. As we like to say, “every box has a story.” Read on for this year’s Lux Bond & Green holiday gift favorites!
Diamond Jewelry Gifts
Diamonds are a wonderful way to say, “I love you and you’re worth it.” They are an everlasting luxury that never go out of style, and the holidays are an excellent reason to gift sparkly diamond jewelry.
If you’re unsure about which styles your wife or loved one would like this holiday, we suggest exploring Gumuchian. Gumuchian is managed by a three-woman team, and their pieces are designed by women, for women. Surprising and luxurious diamond rings like this Zigzac Cuff Ring in 18k yellow gold, featuring 10 round diamonds set into granulated bands in an open-front setting, or the three row diamond band ring in 18k yellow gold with larger round diamonds in the center band, show her how much you continue to care.
We continue our recommendations with Roberto Coin’s beautiful collection of diamond jewelry. What mother or wife wouldn’t love the Palazzo Ducale necklace, with diamonds and in 18k yellow gold, or, a piece of jewelry from the Princess Flower collection, like this pendant? Roberto Coin lays a small ruby on the inside of his designs—something that will make her think of the gift-giver, close to heart, every time she wears that special piece of jewelry.
Look towards IPPOLITA for designer earring gift ideas for the holidays. Trend-forward designs balance comfort and style, even with show-stopping dangly shapes! For instance, the Nova Cultured Pearl earrings feature entwined loops and drop pearls, plus bezel set diamonds. Artistic and handmade, the Lollipop Multi-Stone Drop earrings, with quartz and mother of pearl in 18k yellow gold, drip with festive flair.
Another favorite earring designer is Marco Bicego. His Lucia earrings would make the perfect gift for your wife or girlfriend. They would have just about anyone starry-eyed on a Christmas or New Year’s Eve, as they feature textured 18k yellow gold in a gentle curve, with diamonds along the inner edge. Or, preface gifting the Africa Constellation Diamond Earrings with a disclaimer that you tried to get her the stars but had to settle for diamonds. We’re sure she won’t mind.
Bracelet Gift Ideas
Every lady loves jingling all the way to the holiday party with bangles on her wrist. Toasting with champagne or unwrapping presents can be even more exciting with a little bling! That’s why bracelet gift ideas are so fun. Stack up 14k yellow gold skinnies, like this half-eternity style diamond hinged bangle and this flush set diamond bangle, for a carefree look that’s youthful no matter the wearer’s age.
For more luxury, check out this silky 18k yellow gold bracelet, with a snake-like tapered shape and an 18k white gold end covered with pave diamonds. An excellent choice for the girlfriend who you know is too good for you (just kidding).
Belle Etoile sterling silver and enamel bracelets are a thrilling gift for those who tend to go bold with their fashion choices. Show her that you pay attention to her style with designs like these! The Royale bangle with a swirling vine motif against a bright red background, or the Sirena bracelet with beautiful icy-white scales, offer seasonal, festive colors that she’ll also love to accessorize with all year round.
Pendant Jewelry Gifts
If unique, fine jewelry is what you’re after, look no further than Faberge. Known for their detailed egg shaped and highly decorated baubles, 18k yellow pieces like the Spiral Diamond Pendant which features 250 diamonds, or the enameled Palais Tsarkoye Selo hinged pendant with a hidden golden hen inside, are amazing sights to behold.
For the elegant friend or relative, we suggest pendants by L Klein, a Connecticut-based designer. This aquamarine bubbles and 18k yellow gold pendant on an 18 inch chain or the 18k yellow gold flora pendant are modern with a soft, feminine feel.
There’s no way this section would be complete without this 18k white gold Frozen Diamond Snowflake Pendant by Roberto Coin. For the die-hard Disney lover, or the awesome mom who isn’t shy about belting out “Let it Go” with her tiny princesses, this pendant is about as festive and thoughtful as it gets.
Fine Jewelry Gifts Under $500
There are lots of jewelry gift options that will make her season bright for under $500. Sterling silver, and also white, yellow, and rose gold options are all available in this category. For instance, the 14k yellow gold Moderno pendant collection is simple and contemporary, in shapes like an infinity sign or a horseshoe charm with an asymmetrical diamond on an adjustable chain, for under $200.
One of our favorite designers who specializes in sterling silver, John Hardy, offers party-ready drop earrings for under $500, like the Dot Earrings which feature textured silver hoop shapes, or these teardrop chain earrings with black sapphire and spinel. Inspired by Bali, jewelry by John Hardy will satisfy even the most bohemian profiles on your gift list.
When it comes down to it, simply paying attention can help you with gift selection. Noticing her tastes in clothing, shoes, and accessories, or even her home décor, will give you all of the secrets you need to
