Ross-Simons Jewelers Presents its Holiday 2012 Gift Guide
Choosing the perfect gift can be quite a challenge. So why not get a little help from the experts? The new Ross-Simons gift guide makes it easy to find the ideal gift, with such stylish options as brilliant colored gemstones, dazzling diamonds, updated pearls, fashion-forward gold, decorative ornaments and unique home decor items.
This holiday season marks the end of Ross-Simons' year-long 60th anniversary celebration. And what better way to conclude a milestone year than by offering fabulous jewelry at phenomenal prices? That's holiday shopping at its very best.
"Our 60th anniversary pays tribute to the exciting world-class designs we continue to discover year after year" explains Darrell Ross, President/CEO of Ross-Simons. "It all began in 1952 with our very first diamond collection. Sixty years later, we continue to offer breathtaking diamonds as well as an extensive assortment of high quality jewelry and gifts. What's more, our commitment to value pricing has never been stronger, with incredible deals on truly spectacular items."
All that Glitters
Get in the holiday spirit by choosing gifts that will be cherished for years to come. Here, from Ross-Simons, are stand-out pieces guaranteed to draw rave reviews:
Diamond Jubilee: Diamonds remain the ultimate gift for women. Rings play a starring role this season: the pinwheel ring combines glittering baguettes and round diamonds; the wide pave diamond band is eternally elegant and the "highway" ring with diamond criss-cross bands is an absolute show stopper. Clearly, the holidays are the perfect time to present the love-of-your life with a stunning engagement ring. The options are virtually unlimited, from magnificent 5 carat rings (why not dream a little?) to one-of-a-kind estate pieces to the increasingly popular 3-stone engagement rings. The delicate diamond station necklace is as versatile as it is beautiful. Of course, diamond stud earrings are always a most welcome gift.
Glamorous Gemstones: Brighten the holidays with vibrantly colored jewels. Sapphires, rubies and emeralds are the best-known gemstones, but do consider such vibrant stones as amethyst, citrine, blue topaz and tanzanite. Their brilliant hues are simply irresistible. Gemstone cocktail rings, the quintessential statement pieces, keep getting bigger. After all, who wouldn't love to receive a stunning 14 carat blue topaz ring surrounded with diamonds? Semi-precious gemstone bangles in beautiful bright colors are the season's "must-have" accessory. Mix and match; wear just one or pile on an armful.
Shimmering Pearls: The appeal of pearls cannot be underestimated. Cultured pearl and diamond earrings and single strand pearl necklaces look chic with just about any outfit. But remember that pearl jewelry can also take a modern approach. Pearl beaded cuff bracelets are totally on trend. Or add high style with multi-row freshwater pearl torsade necklaces. The look is pure luxury; the price is hard to believe. Our Gift of the Year is a luminous twelve strand freshwater pearl necklace for only $150!
Party Time: One extraordinary piece of jewelry can make a huge impact. Take center stage at holiday parties with glamorous jewels that sparkle and shine. Chandelier earrings continue to be a wonderful gift for fashion-lovers. Choose from long and linear to swingy geometrics to Italian drop hoops. Cubic zirconia ball drop earrings shimmer with glittering lights. The good news: they only look like they cost a fortune.
Bold Gold: Whether it's contemporary or traditional, gold jewelry sets the standard for gift-giving. Gold mixes effortlessly with silver, diamonds, gemstones and pearls. The classic (yet universally beloved) gold bangle bracelet is a clear-cut winner. What's also high on the radar: glossy Italian Byzantine woven jewelry, diamond cut gold hoop earrings and 14kt gold charm bracelets. Fortunately for us, some things never go out of style.

Deck the Halls
Dress up your home for the holidays with a few extra special touches. A vintage style beverage dispenser acts as both a conversation piece and a functional way to serve a signature beverage. Add a touch of elegance with crystal candlesticks; they work for both traditional and contemporary decorating schemes. Ornaments make the perfect hostess gift; remember this year with snowflakes, stars or balls engraved with "2012."
