If the past five years have been a relentless search for the latest, hottest and trendiest in fashion and jewelry, this year marks a sensible return to the classics. With the sudden economic slowdown, loss of jobs, and fear of excessive spending, consumers are becoming discriminating jewelry buyers. Instead of spending recklessly on trend-fueled pieces buyers are combing through stores and etailers to find the best deals on beautiful classics for holiday gifts. Smartly so, since a classic piece of jewelry can be worn over a lifetime and passed down to future generations.
But which classic pieces make the best holiday gifts? Most jewelry aficionados would argue that there is a short list of classic must-have pieces to complete every well-accessorized woman’s wardrobe. Here is our list of classic necessities, which are practically perfect for holiday gifting at any price point:
Under $100 – Pearl Stud Earrings
At only $75, these pearl earrings make a simple statement of elegance and class. Every woman should own a pretty pair of pearls due to their timelessness and versatility. A pair of pearl studs look equally lovely on a teenager as they do on an 80 year old grandmother, and can be worn with jeans or a ballgown.
Under $200 – Pair of Gold Hoop Earrings
A quality pair of hoop earrings is an essential piece of everyday jewelry. Though trends may come and go, a pair of hoops looked just as great ten years ago as they will ten years in the future. Pick from yellow gold hoop earrings, white gold hoop earrings or our favorite, rose gold hoop earrings in 14k gold.
Or you can opt for diamond hoop earrings for under $500!
Under $500 – A Stunning Cocktail Ring
Big, sparkling cocktail rings have been popular since the 1920′s, and their popularity shows no signs of slowing. Our topaz and diamond white gold cocktail ring is currently discounted $200 below retail, making it quite the deal on such a substantial piece of jewelry. Also available in yellow gold, this gemstone ring boasts a 7.00 Carat Center Gemstone!
Around $1,000 – Diamond Tennis Bracelet
A diamond tennis bracelet is easily one of the most versatile pieces of jewelry. It’s beautiful without being too flashy, and, like the pearl earring, can be worn with sporty as well as formal attire. Our 1 carat tennis bracelet is discounted over $700 below standard retail. Saving money during the holidays has never looked so good!
