Holiday Shopping Get
a Leg Up With Our Jewelry Guide
Wouldn't it be nice if
Santa's helpers were around for you, too? Well hold on there, Grinch,
because it turns out there's an easy solution to holiday shopping that will
put those elves and their wooden trinkets to shame. Check out our jewelry
suggestions below for a comprehensive gift list for all the women naughty
or nice on your list this year.
Mom Gemstone Charm
For Mommy Dearest we've
selected a classic style with a modern edge. Pick a straightforward color
combo to match any outfit. The slight jangle will remind her of you when she
wears it; and the reflection of today's trends will provide an additional
gift of youth (for free).
Sis Cascading Tassel
When it comes to sisters,
we know the best gift is something you'll want to borrow. These trendy,
elegant earrings will add a little pizzaz to any weekend outfit,
conservative holiday suit or cocktail dress. We suggest gold or bronze, in
keeping with seasonal colors, but sterling silver works too.
It's up to friends to do
for us what we cannot do for ourselves, and that includes buying fun,
beautiful jewelry you've only seen on celebrities so far. The Lariat
necklace, which has no clasp and can therefore be worn in a number of
different styles, is a feminine, trendy way to glam up her favorite
drop-neck number. Pick one with her birthstone and your job is practically
done for you.
These days, pearls don't
have to be worn with a polo shirt and poodle skirt, though we're sure you'd
like to see her dress so conservatively. Show your little girl how hip you
are by selecting from any number of freshwater, pink, kieshi or coin pearl
necklaces. We guarantee that though they may look different than grandma's,
these styles are still the epitome of innocence.
Wife Labrodite Ring
No matter how many years
it's been since you put that first ring on her finger, we promise she'll
appreciate the chance to decorate another knuckle. This wrap-around style
ring is a fun alternative to a standard band, and is much more "now," so to
Birthstone Cuff Bracelet
Show her how much you
care by doing a little research (not much, we promise!) before purchasing
your gift this year. Cuff bracelets can be made with any gemstone, so go
online and figure out which stone correlates with her birth month and make
your decision that way. While you're at it, print out the research you find
on the history of the stone. She'll be touched by the sentimentality, not to
mention the effort.
