DSC_6812edit-1.jpg

It's that time of year again, the holiday season is upon us! It seems to come quicker and quicker each year, don't you think? With the endless gift options, we know how difficult it can be to choose a gift for someone special. Of course, you want to get her something she will love wearing everyday. 

Well, not to worry, we are here to help! In this year's holiday gift guide, we've narrowed down a few of our favorite gift ideas from fashion jewelry to timepieces that can be given to any woman in your life.

Save yourself the headache of choosing the perfect gift with this fail-proof list:

1) Fashionable Modern Lockets

Lockets are a timeless classic that allow you to cherish a personal memory or hold an image of a loved one that you can carry with you forever. Not only are these necklaces classic, but they're currently trending on the runways shown with top designers like Dolce and Gabanna.

Some of our favorite lockets for holiday gift-giving come from designer Monica Rich Kosann. What makes Monica Rich Kosann lockets so special? When they are being designed, the number one question that comes to Monica's mind is "Can a woman give this jewelry to her daughter in 20 years?" The answer is absolutely yes! Monica hopes that these lockets will be passed down from generation to generation while maintaining a timeless style throughout the ever changing fashion trends. 

Two of the hottest styles this year for lockets include the Rose Gold Petite "Anna" Locket and Mother of Pearl Oval Lockets (featured above). Rose gold is a very popular metal this year for all jewelry with its soft, romantic and feminine undertones. And the mother of pearl locket face is one we've seen used by many different designers, complemented perfectly by a row of diamonds. 

2) Meaningful Charm Necklaces

Charm necklaces are another classic that you can't go wrong with. Charm necklaces can represent the love between you and your significant other or something that has special meaning in her life, like traveling. One of our favorite designers, Monica Rich Kosann, believes that a charm necklace captures a singular idea about a woman who wears it. In a way, it's like a fingerprint totally unique to the wearer.

Nautical and bohemian styles have both been very popular this past year. Tune into her personal style by going with one of our favorite charm necklaces (shown above). The "Dream" Moon Necklace is perfect for the boho girl who is a free spirit and a dreamer. The "Travel" Global Compass  Necklace is a must have for a traveler, but also is trending at the moment for someone with nautical style and loves being on the water. These necklaces will never go out of style, and she will love that you picked something with personal value.

3) Shinola Leather Watches

If you don't want to go with a jewelry piece, a watch is a great alternative. One of our favorite new watch brands, Shinola, makes a perfect trendy yet affordable gift. Voted "Coolest" Brand of 2016, these watches have a remarkable story behind them. All Shinola watches are assembled in their American factory located in Detroit. Their goal is to reclaim the making of things that are made well, and "define American luxury through American quality."

Two of our favorite styles for this season are The Birdy and The Canfield (featured above). The thin straps and trendy designs of these watches will make them some of our best sellers this year. 

These designer watches also come at a great price so you won't feel guilty after your purchase. On top of that, they are incredibly trendy. Make her smile this holiday season with a designer watch she's guaranteed to love. 

4) Trendy Stackable Bracelets

Stackable bracelets are THE trend in bracelets right now! No two stacks are the same, and that's what makes them so fun and unique. Some are big, some are small, some have diamonds and some have designs; the possibilities are endless.

Bar bracelets are one of the hottest pieces when it comes to a stackable bracelet set. We have seen them layered in different metals for a "mix and match" look or just one by itself to show off its classic style. Two of our favorites this season are the  Monica Rich Kosann"Carpe Diem"Petite Posey Bracelet, and a single row diamond bar bracelet which is great for someone who has more simple, classic style. If you are looking for a more unique and luxurious bracelet, the Marco Bicego twist bracelet featured in his Marrakech collection is hand crafted perfection.

Start off her collection this holiday season by gifting her a stackable bracelet, and for future holidays and celebrations, you can keep adding on. 

5) Not Your Average Stud Earrings

Every girl has a pair of basic studs in her jewelry box, but not all of them have a pair that is unique and different. We've seen a  lot of people asking for a different style stud that strays from tradition.

Ear climbers have been a huge trend in 2016. There is something undeniably edgy and unique about this look. Ear climbers make it appear as if you are wearing multiple earrings when, in fact, it's only one earring. One of our favorites pairs is the Bezel Set Diamond Ear Climbers (above). Diamonds will be sparkling from every angel with these wrapped around your ear.

Double studs are something new we are seeing and are great for every day to replace your classic diamond studs or to spice up your black tie event jewelry. Refer above to the Dana Rebecca "Emily Sarah" Diamond Double Triangle Studs and TATE Double Bezel Set Diamond studs for inspiration. If the girl you are gifting is someone with an edgy, out-of-the-box style, she will love a funky pair of stud earrings. 

6) Outstanding Open Bangles

Rejuvenate her look by giving her an open bangle or cuff bracelet. Skip a regular bangle which can sometimes be too tight on the wrist and opt for the more trendy option that will be easier for her to take on and off. All three options shown above show off different styles by incorporating mixed metals (major trend!) and diamond accents, which make them a perfect go-to bracelet.

The great thing about these bracelets is they keep coming back year after year, so we can be sure she won't get sick of it since they continue to be so stylish. She will be able to wear this to the office or on a night out with her girlfriends!

7) Classic Diamond Necklaces

When all else fails, you can't go wrong with a diamond necklace. It's something that every girl would be happy with. There are so many different styles to choose from, from a horizontal row of diamonds, double diamonds and more, so you don't have to worry about it looking too traditional if that's not the look you're going for.

Our Bar Necklace with Diamonds and Tate Double Bezel Set Diamond Necklace are perfect examples of how diamond necklaces have become more modern and trendy. Not to worry if the girl in your life is more classic, Dana Rebecca's "Lauren Joy" Diamond Mini Necklace is a perfect choice with its pave diamond design. Our guess is no matter the style, she will want to put it on as soon as she opens the box!
