Christmas Gift Guide

By | News | No Comments

Well, December is here now, and though it seems like there is plenty of time, you know that time always mysteriously disappears all too quickly. Before you know it, it’s Christmas Eve and you’re drenched in a cold sweat, filled to the breaking point with stress as you frantically hunt for gifts, all the while hoping they don’t look “last-minute.”

Unless you are really, really good or really really lucky, odds are that these gifts will be a little lackluster in your heart of hearts. What better joy is there than giving a gift you KNOW is downright PER-FECT. I’ll tell you what’s better: when that gift is for the person who means the most to you.

Now I don’t want to turn this into a “Philosophy of the Holiday Season” article; that’s not going to help you out right now, but often we get so caught up in just getting something (anything!) that we miss out on a whole lotta joy and love. Seriously. OK, but that’s a discussion for next November.

So what do you do? Put just a little more time in and it will pay you back TEN FOLD. Now it’s hard to know where to start, so I’ve got a few ideas (and pictures) for you to choose from. Pay attention to what that special someone wears, likes, or even HINTS about.

Jewelry Style for 2016-17 Gift Ideas:

Layered Pearls

Obviously this could get pricey if you do cultured pearls, but we have a great selection of freshwater pearls with white or yellow gold (or silver) that look amazing.

Bangles (worn over sleeve)

I personally love this trend. It really makes the bangle stand out; plus it’s one style that agrees perfectly with living in the Northeast! We have some drool-worthy candidates in yellow, white or rose gold, with or without diamonds, sapphires, faceted or cabochon, etc., etc.!

Layered Necklaces

I have been digging this trend for a while now. This is such a great gift because you can really customize it to suit your taste and budget. These layers can be created with single pendants in yellow or white gold, precious stones such as diamonds, emeralds, rubies or birthstones, bar or station necklaces – the possibilities are only limited by your creativity!

Lariat Necklaces

I love lariats. They are elegant but don’t have to look too dressy and can be worn casual or evening. They can be with or without stones and come in yellow, white or rose gold.

Come in and talk to us for more ideas or to grab one of these ones. The earlier you come in, the more time we have to create that perfect gift. There’s absolutely no reason to not enjoy every facet of this Holiday season. No reason. Relax and breathe in, breathe out. Happy shopping!
