Holiday Gift Guide 2021: Everyday Jewelry
Small diamonds twinkling against the glow of yellow gold could make any women’s heart flutter with excitement. Yellow gold has been trending for some time and it doesn’t seem like that is going to change anytime soon. It has been around for centuries and has been popular through different periods in time. Our selection is inspired by Asian fans, flora and fauna, lace trim and geometric forms reminiscent of the Art Deco period, yet all with a current vibe. As relevant as these pieces are in today’s jewelry, they are also versatile and enduring. And, they are the pieces you will want to throw on, or never take off — those go-to pieces that are easy and effortlessly wearable.
Please find a curation of jewels in yellow gold and diamonds for everyday wear:
Berlinger: Octagon Shape 18K Gold Diamond Mosaic Pendant

Working with a variety of cuts of diamonds, she creates captivating arrangements of which no two will ever look exactly alike. Her attention to detail and shape bring together pure artistry and wearability. “The pieces should never be so precious that women don’t want to make them part of their daily rotations,” says Michelle. The geometry and architecture of the Art Deco period are at the core of the inspiration of the designs yet all pieces seem fresh due to the intricate craftsmanship that goes into every one of her pieces. This 14K yellow gold octagon pendant is set with princess, round and trillion cuts.

These earrings can complement all.
Alex Fitz: 18K Gold Diamond Bar And Chain Drop Earrings
Alex Fitz’s bar and chain drop earrings form almost a ladder shape that is the perfect length for “wear any time of the day” long earrings. They evoke a look of modern geometry – but with swing and movement which is key to adding sparkle around the face. The earrings are set with ethically sourced princess cut, round and baguette diamonds in recycled 18K.

Yoki Collections: Transformable Diamond And 18K Gold Studs
Yoki Collections’ 18K gold Interchangeable Earring Studs feature a mix of yellow and white gold. The center is a pave diamond stud with a gold wreath of leaves in high polished yellow gold. They can be worn as just the diamond stud or the entire earring. Yokabid Worku’s often works with interchangeable pieces of jewelry to offer multiple looks in one. Her inspiration for these earrings, she explains is “a play of light and textures and the tropical greenery of palm tree barks/leaves conveying fresh start, restoration, hope and positive outlook for the future.”
Lindley Gray: Foundation Stacking Pave Diamond Ring
Lindley Gray’s Foundation Ring is perfect as a luxurious stacking ring. This is a sparky edition of one of the first designs in Lindley’s collections with pave encircling the band. The beauty is in the modern symmetry of the three trillion flush set white diamonds which punctate the band. It is contemporary in its styling and works layered on the finger with other rings in Lindley’s collection or simple diamond eternity bands in any shape from round to baguette as well as in the center of simple gold bands that a woman might already own. It’s a classic in the making and one that any woman would also be thrilled to also wear alone.”
Kaylin Hertel: 14K Gold Open Fan Earrings
Kaylin Hertel says, “I have always gravitated towards fabrics as inspiration and Japanese textiles in particular. It is the high level of craft and refinement thoughtfully mingled with whimsy and the delicate and natural world that attract me,” says Kaylin. These are the same characteristics that she strives to incorporate into her own work — a balance between the feminine elegance and a tactile feeling of engraved floral designs and more graphic three-dimensional fan shapes that define her collection like this circle and fan shape accented in the center with small diamonds.
