This season we have put together a guide of 12 Christmas Gifts for the Holidays 2017, which was chosen by a roundup of emerging jewelry talents. We have broken it down for you into three sections: Stocking Stackers, a Gift for Layering and Make a Personalized Holiday Statement.

Stocking Stackers-

Traditionally men don’t like to purchase rings for the holidays unless they are married or about to pop the question, but these are the type of rings that won’t send your guys running for the nearest boring diamond studs (they don’t look at all like engagement rings or wedding bands). They’re also the type of rings that friends and family can purchase for you now and add onto for presents for special occasions.

1-Onirikka’s Briolette Bands In 18K Yellow And White Gold.

The subtle sparkle of briolette diamonds in mixed metal bands in stacks of two or three dance around the finger and create a playful yet elegant feeling.

And if you don’t wait until the last minute, they can be customized and set with virtually any gemstone you

3-Baltera’s Open Cuff Ring

Let me count the ways why this ring makes an amazing gift. 1-The braid design carries with it centuries and cultures of symbolism including continuity. 2- The open center allows for a new beginning and also a stylish new way to wear a cuff—on your finger. 3- The diamonds stand for enduring love and are also chic and elegant when trillion shaped and set at the tips of the design. 4-It comes in 18K gold and can have a matte finish (as shown here) or can be high polished. It can stack well with all of Baltera’s other braid rings or can top off the existing bands in your existing ring wardrobe.



These can be medallions, charms or intricate chains that can be layered with other pieces in the designer’s collection or an existing jewelry wardrobe. These pieces are for the women who choose jewelry that tells a bit about their lives and who prefer multiple graduated necklaces to one large statement pieces.

4-Loren Celedonia Medium Curve Pendant With Diamonds In 18K Gold

5-Genevieve Lau 14K Solid Rose Gold Marrakech Custom Link Chain

Jennifer Lau,  the designer behind the collection’s inspiration for this necklace was sparked by a trip to Morocco and the decorative patterns in it’s architecture. It is 32” and layers with shorter pendants or charm necklaces with meaningful simple charms or those with similar shapes to the links in the necklace. It can also be worn doubled with a longer necklace hanging below it. There are numerous options in which this necklace can be worn.


6-Samantha Knight 14K Yellow & White Gold Celestial Lucky Number Pendant

The designer’s love for the evening sky, vintage charms and all symbolism of luck has inspired this solid gold medallion, which features star details and a personalized single or double digit number of your choice. It can be worn as its own pendant with other necklaces layered above and below it or can become part of a charm necklace, layered with other charm or simpler chain styles.


7-Brevani Dashing Diamonds Triple Layered Necklace

Three necklaces in one—what makes a better gift than one that is multi-functional and beautiful at the same time? Small diamonds accent this 18K gold necklace in which the back closure allows you to attach and remove the graduated strands and wear one, two or three at a time. This allows for the versatility of layering with one necklace or other pieces in your collection.
