For one thing, there is such a wide array of gift options. A quality timepiece or fine jewelry is, of course, always welcome. If there is only room for a more discreet gift, a silver bangle is a simple yet sleek adornment for any holiday cocktail dress. Personally, I like the linked trend that many top designers have utilized, like this Tiffany 1837™ interlocking circles bangle (right) or a more generous choice, Cartier’s Trinity collection (below).
charm bracelets continue to be en vogue, and make a lovely gift. There is something special about the promises implied in a bracelet where each added charm will have significance to the wearer. Long chains and pendants are other retro items which have enjoyed a renaissance, and I have to say I’m delighted. They are universally flattering and there are so many options that your choice can really be tailored to the tastes of the recipient.
Finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list may seem quite the challenge, but with the various jewelry collections, you’re sure to please. And while you’re out there looking, be sure to pick out something special for the most important person on your list - you! Happy Holidays!!
