Jewelry is always a really personal gift to give during the holidays. It’s a go to for many men out there, but also for gifting to your best girl friends, Mom or sister. When it comes to jewelry, I’m pretty minimal. It wasn’t until recently that I really grew my statement earring collection. While traveling with some blogger friends in Miami, I noticed I was the only one not wearing a big fun statement earring. Since that trip, I’ve added lots of new favorites to my jewelry box. From these tassels above to these fun double tassels that are great for a holiday party.
I’m sharing a few favorite jewelry pieces that are impressive and beautiful but won’t break the bank. Whether you’re shopping for a friend, Mom or sister, these make for a great gift that they’ll cherish for many years to come.
THE BEST AFFORDABLE JEWELRY TO GIFT THIS YEAR
1. Hart Studio Tassel Earrings
I had the pleasure of getting to meet this designer in her studio while visiting Charleston a few weeks ago. Her earrings are absolutely stunning and instantly make an outfit more festive. Depending on your budget, and style, you can go classic with her affordable tassel earrings, the topknot tassels (pictured above) or really bold with the Double Dare Darlings (I just got these and can’t wait to wear them for a holiday party).
2. Big Chain Link Bracelet
When thinking of something just about anyone would like, I instantly think of a chunky gold chain link bracelet. I have a few and every time I wear them I always get a compliment on them. They’re great for layering or wearing as is.
3. Something Vintage
If you’re special someone likes vintage pieces, be sure to check out San Francisco based Sweet & Spark. Whether you like the 60’s, 70’s or 80’s, there’s something from every era it seems like. These pieces are all one of a kind and hand selected by the shop owner herself. Plus, she just recently added some apparel to her shop so you can complete your shopping by adding a pretty blouse to your order too.
4. Ear Crawlers
For the trendy gal on your list, ear crawlers are a fun update to an everyday earring. I have a few pairs and I think they’re my most worn earrings right after my classic gold hoops. You can find everyday ones, or more sparkly and statement inspired crawlers depending on the recipient.
5. For The Madewell Obsessed
So this is me. Duh. I’m a big Madewell fan, so I’m happy to accept ANY piece from their jewelry collection. If you have a J.Crew lover, or Kate Spade fanatic, just head to the jewelry section and you’re probably going to make them happy.
6. Simple Gold Rings
Sometimes you just don’t need to go overboard. A simple gold ring like these from cupcakes and cashmere, are a dainty piece she’ll wear always. I love this gold thumb ring and just bought this one for myself since I lost my other one that truly had seen better days. Maybe it was a good thing I lost it…
7. Lisi Lerch Earrings
I feel like I’m seeing these more and more these days on fellow bloggers. Lisi Lerch earrings are always big and bold and make a serious statement.
