The holiday shopping season is upon us once again. Wondering what to get your loved ones? There are the tried-and-true fine jewelry staples, such as diamond studs, a classic pendant, or pearls.
But for those of you looking for something a bit trendier and unique, here are some jewelry gift ideas courtesy of NationalJeweler.com.
Hearts with a twist.
A heart motif is hardly new, but its latest iteration is different from hearts past in that designers are transitioning from sweet, traditional styles to ones that are modern and even a bit edgy. Designers are applying their own signatures to the heart to make them uniquely and recognizably theirs.
Evolution of statement earrings.
A statement earring is a natural next step for the fine jewelry lover who already has her bases covered with studs and hoops. Several designers have been embracing the collarbone duster—think shoulder dusters but ones that hit the collarbone. Although daring, the style is surprisingly wearable and flattering.
The styles currently available range from earthy to classic to bold. Shop for designs accented with opals, gemstones, or pearls for an elegant look, or choose sleek gold renditions for a simple, yet powerful statement.
Enamel on the rise.
The resurgence of enamel in the last five years has exhibited considerable staying power, showing a demand from consumers. More contemporary designers are jumping on the bandwagon, livening up their best-selling styles in new colors or coming up with new looks altogether devoted to the material.
If you’re new to this trend, invest in some classic styles, like sophisticated hoop earrings or an enamel pendant.
Yellow gold coming back?
The phrase, “everything old is new again,” definitely applies to yellow gold. Yellow gold has taken a backseat to white gold and other white metals in recent years, yet this classic metal is making a comeback. Designers are turning to create some truly breathtaking pieces using yellow gold and many welcome the opportunity to design something that has a vintage aesthetic.
While yellow gold is ideally suited to people with warmer skin tones, at the holidays, it adds festivity to any outfit.
