Stir Something Up With Fun Cocktail Rings

The red hues of a ruby ring or the green tones of an emerald ring can be a festive addition to any holiday party look and add a lot of unexpected style to your seasonal wardrobe. The big shape of a cocktail ring can make any outfit pop, and looks great holding a celebratory glass of champagne. Pair these bold rings with refined classics, like a Van Cleef & Arpels necklace, for a well-balanced look that is perfect for any holiday soiree.

Beat the Holiday Blues with Sapphire Jewelry

If you are lucky enough to have a blue sapphire engagement ring, like the one Prince William gave to Kate Middleton, reach into your jewelry box for more sapphire jewelry to create a big statement this holiday season. Sapphire earrings are great to bring out blue eyes, and a sapphire necklace can bring your little black dress to life for another evening out. If you are looking for a more classic and understated elegance with your sapphires, the bluest of all precious gems gets special attention when worn with white diamonds, as in a large sapphire ring paired with a diamond necklace.

Stacked Holiday Calendars Call for Stacked Tennis Bracelets

Stacked tennis bracelets balance well with a beautiful diamond ring or elegant diamond earrings , whether you are going out for an evening event or are putting together a daytime look. Add to your regular stack to go from day to night, creating an impressive cuff-sided diamond bracelet, or change up your look by adding different pieces into the mix. Adding an art deco diamond bracelet into a stack of more traditional tennis bracelets or mixing the size of the diamonds you are wearing can create an interesting variety of patterns on your wrist. Along with the diamond pendant necklace and diamond stud earrings, the tennis bracelet is considered one of the most versatile pieces in a jewelry collection — by adding another diamond tennis bracelet to your jewelry box, you get even more versatility in your holiday jewelry looks.

Stacked tennis bracelets are the stars of this elegant look.

Make a Statement With a Gold Necklace

When looking to make an entrance, a statement necklace is always in order. Go for gold necklaces with exquisite craftsmanship from brands like Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels or Bvlgari. A Van Cleef & Arpels necklace brings timeless elegance to your holiday look, while a Cartier necklace is often a real showstopper. You can also go for the layered look by stacking up Chanel necklaces to create a unique multi-strand gold necklace.
