Jewelry Box Essentials

Posted on Friday, December 9th, 2016 at 2:46 pm by Administrator

Wondering what to get her this Christmas? In an effort to help you zoom in on a great gift idea, we're counting down 9 jewelry box essentials every woman should have this season!


#1 - Statement Bracelet 

Diamond line bracelets are the perfect milestone gift and are often passed from generation to generation. A wide bangle or cuff, as shown here from Stephen Estelle, is another clean statement look. 




#2 - Stackable Bracelets 

They're everywhere! And if you choose smartly, she’ll be able to wear them for decades to come. Avoid “mystery metal” which can cause skin problems and generally cannot be repaired because a jeweler has no matching metal with which to solder it. Instead, go with gold or sterling-- like this ELLE bracelet.




#3 - Diamond Solitaire Pendant

Perfect for her 18th or 21st birthday—or any birthday thereafter! A simple diamond solitaire pendant is a great gift she’ll never forget. This gift would be an unforgettable gesture from loved ones for a soon-to-be bride. To celebrate her first “real” job after graduation. To commemorate a big promotion.





#4 - Dress/Work Watch 

Dress watches tend to be a bit sleeker and smaller than their chunkier casual counterparts. This Eco-Drive light-powered watch from Citizen features floating diamonds and never needs a battery.





#5 - Strand of Pearl 

Pearls are experiencing a resurgence on the runways right now, especially layered and with casual wear. Traditionally the classic pearl strand was made of Akoya pearls; today, freshwater cultured pearls are another budget-friendly option. Just make sure you get a comfortable length.





#6 - Everyday Necklace 

A short necklace that sits on or just below the clavicle bones is great with open necklines and unbuttoned shirts. Go for 16-20” depending upon her build. This might be a simple chain, a station necklace with gemstones every 2 inches, a small disk necklace with her initial, or a bar necklace such as the one shown here from Gabriel NY.




#7 - Right Hand Ring 

Nothing expresses confidence like a large gemstone ring such as this kunzite & diamond one by our in-house jeweler Craig Brady. If she’s not into the chunkiness of a large gemstone on her hand, wearing multiple smaller scale rings is also in style. Either way, it’s best to know her ring size before purchasing but if not, make sure the style you picked out can be resized.



#8 - Long Necklace 

Maybe its popularity is due to the slimming effect of this style. There are so many choices—with a tassel or oversized pendant, station-style like this ELLE necklace, in pearls or beaded gemstones. The choices go on and on. Long necklaces, 30” & up, are great alone or layered. If you go a bit longer, she can use a shortener which creates several looks by turning a single strand into a double or triple strand anytime to fit her fashion.




#9 - Sport/Casual Watch 

Today’s hot watch look is oversized. Women are even buying themselves men’s watches to get the desired scale. The timepiece shown is from Reactor, the world’s toughest performance watch—great for active women.
