Holiday jewelry

1. Seasonal Spirit

It’s the only time of year that you can get away with snowflakes and Christmas trees — so don’t hold back! There are a lot of options when it comes to jewelry that is literally holiday inspired. Love the winter? Get an Hermes Clic H bracelet with festive snowflakes. Love the winter and diamonds? Get a Chopard Happy Sport watch with a snowflake dial.

If you are looking for a Christmastime trinket, then there’s the Van Cleef & Arpels Clover necklace that would look perfect under the tree. Finally, if your interpretation of holiday-inspired jewelry is less literal, we think the diamonds on these Ippolita earrings look like snow-covered branches.

2.  Understated Elegance

If you love all things luxury with a sophisticated and understated elegance, then perhaps you don’t need anything other than a classic, refined staple piece. There are three things every woman needs in her jewelry collection: a bracelet, something pearl and diamond studs.

The Cartier Love bracelet is stunning without imposing. Bonus: it tells the time while looking like a fine jewelry piece. If you are looking for a more traditional timepiece, then look no farther than the Cartier Ballon Bleu. This is a watch for those who love excellence, but not flashiness. For jewelry, opt for a pair of classic Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra earrings — pearls or diamond studs.
