Hi guys, I’m Whitney.
There’s a childhood photo of me somewhere dripping in jewelry. Picture this— I’m wearing a hat with a broach, big clip-on earrings, long white gloves, at least six or seven strands of pearls and a little bracelet with my name on it. As you can imagine, it was very hard for me to pick only FIVE pieces of jewelry… so I bent the rules a little bit. Here are just a few of my many favorite holiday gift picks.
1. Stud Earrings
I love seeing people doing funky mismatched stud looks, they are really trendy right now. Jade Trau was here for her trunk show and I had real stud envy. I don’t have enough ear piercings to wear all the studs I want - maybe Santa will bring me an ear piercing gift card, haha!
2. A Stunning Everyday Necklace
The cute little gold baguette dangle necklace from our house collection - we have many different versions of this, but I especially love the baguette piece. (This would be my top pick for an everyday look that you can layer in many different ways). I did ask my mom for this for Christmas...
3. Big Earrings
I mean come on, what’s not to love. I’m a sucker for a big fun earring. I feel like earrings are one of the first pieces of jewelry that people really notice when they look at you. Could be the proximity to your face or my own personal bias because I’ve been wearing large earrings most of my adult life. The turquoise Amyn earrings are hard to top, they look good with everything.. or maybe everything looks good with them. But I couldn’t pick just pick one, I have a pair of the Bohemi feather leathers and I get so many compliments on them.
4. Upside Down Diamonds
Yes, you heard me right. Tap by Todd Pownell has a killer look so it was hard for me to pick just one piece from him. I love the ring because I think it’s a unique version of a classic right-hand ring look and it’s a little chunkier that some of the other pieces we have.
5. SLJ Elements Bracelet
At first glance, this may be just another beautiful bracelet... But it’s not. The different ways to customize this piece are unlimited. You can change the color of the stones, change the stations, add a couple of meaningful symbols or dates, set four diamonds to represent four children, add in a birthstone or engrave roman numerals of your wedding date.
