Light Up the Season
Make holiday shopping an enjoyable experience by finding presents that truly reflect the personality of the recipient. The good news: there are so many designs and styles that it's easy to find that really special gift. Here, from Ross-Simons, are gift ideas guaranteed to "wow" jewelry lovers everywhere.
Dazzling Diamonds: Diamond jewelry is the ultimate holiday gift. Indulge in colored diamonds - a stylish way to sparkle and shine. Yellow and brown diamonds set in gold are stunning. But let's not ignore the classics: the elegant tennis bracelet never goes out of style. Try one in sterling silver and diamonds for an incredibly beautiful piece at an amazing value. And what is more coveted than the pave diamond ring? Go sleek and narrow or wide and tapered. Diamond in-and-out hoop earrings are perhaps the most versatile accessory of all time. Dress up or down; wear day or night.
Arm Candy: The importance of the bracelet cannot be overstated. It is the "must-have" accessory for this season and next. Look for thin diamond bangles, modern gold styles and a unique assortment of wide cuffs. (There is nothing wrong with a little excess this year, so pile on the jewels!) Cuff bracelets are more interesting than ever: finishes are hammered, pebbled, sculpted and polished. One of the best: a black resin cuff bracelet with a turquoise and drusy quartz center. Flexible tubogas bracelets are simply gorgeous. The grooved design is extremely chic in gold, black and silver finishes; seven interlocking bangles make quite the fashion statement.
Color, Glorious, Color: The colors this season are - in a word - gorgeous. Incorporate vivid hues into your wardrobe with such gemstones as morganite, aquamarine, citrine, amethyst, peridot, garnet and blue topaz. Labradorite slice jewelry reflects the light, flashing iridescent bursts of pink, blue and green. A fabulous gift set: five pairs of freshwater pearl earrings topped with a peridot, amethyst, citrine, garnet and blue topaz stone. Cocktail rings are so much fun to wear. Consider a huge 12.00 carat citrine rectangular ring surrounded with diamonds or a stunning 14.00ct.blue topaz teardrop ring. Bigger is better.
Long and Luxe: Length matters — long jewelry is definitely the way to go this holiday season. One long necklace can "make" an outfit. Combining different stones is totally on-trend. For example, moonstones, cultured pearls and natural diamonds create a striking tassel necklace. Other stylish choices: gemstone and diamond pendants, amethyst bead drop necklaces and cultured pearl necklaces. Layer two or three together for maximum impact. Linear earrings run the gamut from dangling multi-colored gemstones to swingy Italian chain link designs to rock crystal drops to rose quartz cluster earrings.
Precious Metals: High quality gold and silver jewelry knows no bounds. Drusy quartz jewelry, in particular, is making a huge comeback. The sparkling crystals are an easy way to add glitz and glamour at extremely affordable price points. Gleaming gold hoop earrings dotted with diamonds work every single day. For a contemporary flair, consider fine silver jewelry. Look for Italian sterling silver bead necklaces, silver ribbed dome rings and rope textured silver link necklaces. Black rhodium is the very essence of modern chic; the dark finish contrasts beautifully when paired with white, yellow and rose gold as well as gemstones in every conceivable color.
Timeless Classics: Watches are always a popular gift item, but keep it in mind you don't have to spend a fortune. A gold tone watch with a rhinestone face and double curb link chains is a trendy timepiece, especially appealing when priced under $100! Cultured pearls, one of life's little pleasures, mix well with gold, diamonds and gemstones. The unique shape of each pearl enhances the luminous beauty in pearl necklaces, earrings and rings. Thankfully, cubic zirconia jewelry keeps getting better and better. Why not sport a pair of long CZ floral teardrop earrings? They are the perfect complement to the little black dress.
