1. Seasonal Spirit
It’s the only time of year that you can get away with snowflakes and Christmas trees — so don’t hold back! There are a lot of options when it comes to jewelry that is literally holiday inspired. Love the winter? Get an Hermes bangle with festive snowflakes. Love the winter and diamonds? Get a Chopard Happy Sport watch with a snowflake dial.
If you are looking for a Christmastime trinket, then there’s the Chanel Christmas tree necklace that would look perfect under the tree. Finally, if your interpretation of holiday-inspired jewelry is less literal, we think the diamonds on these Ippolita earrings look like snow-covered branches.
2. Two-Tone Statement Necklaces
‘Tis the season of gold, silver and glitter. Take this holiday color scheme to the next level at your next formal holiday event with a stunning two-tone statement necklace — add diamonds for extra sparkle. For a more casual event, try something like a vintage Chanel faux pearl necklace.
If you are getting decked out for the holidays, try something especially dazzling. We love the two-tone twist of this Jacob & Co. necklace and the pave diamonds are an added bonus. Looking for something unique? Let the good times flow with this unique, woven necklace in a liquid drape style. Finally, if you are looking for something unexpected, this David Yurman choker is the perfect choice. Gold, diamonds and the classic DY cable design — what more could you want?
3. Bold Cocktail Rings
A holiday party look isn’t complete without a cocktail ring. The cocktail ring is even named that because it was the accessory of choice at cocktail parties! You can make this holiday party appropriate with the right color or accents.
Try a red tone like this Carrera y Carrera sapphire and diamond ring or this garnet and diamond cocktail ring. If color isn’t your preference, then try a sparkling diamond-covered design like this white gold Piaget rose ring. Finally, try mimicking the icy weather in true 1920s fashion with this antique Art Deco ring.
4. Understated Elegance
If you love all things luxury with a sophisticated and understated elegance, then perhaps you don’t need anything other than a classic, refined staple piece. There are three things every woman needs in her jewelry collection: a watch, something pearl and diamond studs.
The Bulgari Serpenti watch is stunning without imposing. Bonus: it tells the time while looking like a fine jewelry piece. If you are looking for a more traditional timepiece, then look no farther than the Cartier Ballon Bleu. This is a watch for those who love excellence, but not flashiness. For jewelry, opt for a pair of classic earrings — pearls or diamond studs.
