Jewelry just might be the ultimate gift. Luxe by nature, suitable to wear every single day, and, not for nothing, quick and easy to wrap, there’s always a piece for everyone on your shopping list (yourself included). Go bold and statement or sleek and minimalist: Every style type has something they’ll want to add to their collection.
From gold-plated necklaces that work in an everyday layering situation to designer studs and a bejeweled beetle we can’t stop thinking about, these are picks where we’d never ask for the gift receipt.
Staple chains are the current it-layer. They work equally well solo or with a whole pack of others. Crafted to be extra sparkly, this design has a matte finish and tiny facets on each oval link.
Initials are always in style, and medallions are having a particular moment. This slightly oversized pendant combines both and is sure to become a signature piece.
End the hoop-versus-stud debate with this doubled-up style. A single piece, the prong-set stone adds the perfect amount of sparkle.
Playful, funky, full of personality: This one-of-a-kind choker is just-right for someone who loves color and wears it frequently.
