Each holiday season, nothing brings more joy than the prepping—and unwrapping—of loved ones' stockings. Why is that? We believe that it's because it can be small-scaled surprises that sometimes mean the most, and this season, we're not overlooking the rings, earrings, and bracelets that warrant a spot in someone's stocking. Whether sourcing antique gems or designs that are made in places as far flung as Brazil, the key is picking the petite pieces that pack a punch visually and carry a story.
Here are the best pieces of jewelry for gifting this holiday season and beyond.
Art Deco Style Diamond Onyx Chrysophrase Earrings
Long, dramatic earrings really bring the glamour to a holiday dinner, especially when boasting slender drops of onyx and chrysophrase beads.
Yellow Gold Amazônia Ring
Not only do locally sourced blue topaz and aquamarine make this Brazilian-made ring even more special, but its purchase funds trees being planted in the Amazon. We love a gift that gives back!
White Jade Bracelet
Creamy Chinese jade married with beautiful moonstones make this bracelet a versatile and stunning piece to layer with other bangles and bracelets.
Oval Signet Ring
What's more personal than a specially designed signet ring? Whether it's adding a family crest, symbol, or monogram, nodding to the receiver's own history makes this a timeless gift for any man or woman.
Boule Disco Diamond Earrings
Need something to wear on New Year's Eve? We're looking no further than these fabulous studs that mimic the shape of a disco ball. Party, started.
Jean Sterling Silver Cuff
Crafted in New York City of sterling silver, this shapely cuff is an art piece made for your wrist. This silhouette—which mimics a sculpture's lines—is the only accessory one needs for an evening out. Double up with one on each wrist for a true power look.
A layer of black enamel gives these star-shaped studs extra life and dimension. Charming, glittery center diamonds add some sparkle to these perfect everyday earrings.
Puffed Gold Chandelier Earrings
Who doesn't love a chandelier earring? We certainly do—especially when done in a thoughtful way. These earrings are super lightweight, meaning your ears won't be sore by the end of the evening.
Diamond Hammered Nail-Shaped Ring
A twisted nail ring, sporting a hand-hammered texture and diamonds trimming out each end, is a statement piece that can be worn every day.
Chatelaine Diamond Stud Earrings
Pavé diamond studs are a classic gift to drop in the bottom of a stocking. David Yurman's iconic twisted rope motif adorn the base and lend an extra element of eye candy.
Citrine Pinky Ring
Fred Leighton is known for its collection of antique jewels, and this 1940s French pinky ring is quite the find. Set with two emerald-cut citrines, its bold band and geometric shapes give it a one-of-a-kind look.
