‘Tis the Season for Festive Holiday Jewelry
With all of the holiday parties filling up your social calendar, it’s the perfect time to treat yourself to one or two dazzling jewels. In addition to adding sparkle to your outfit, a stunning pair of earrings or a statement necklace is sure to put you in the festive mood!
When shopping for holiday jewelry, you should be on the lookout for glimmering diamonds, red or green gems, classic pearls, and basically anything big and bold.
I’ve selected a few festive pieces that will upgrade your holiday look this season and leave you feeling merry.
BEAUTÉS DU MONDE EARRINGS
Festive with a contemporary twist, these Cartier stunners twinkle with rubellites, onyx, and 57 brilliant-cut diamonds. Pair them with a simple black V-neck dress to add a pop of color and festivity to your holiday party look. They can also be worn long after the holiday season is over.
A glistening green necklace brought to life with vivid tsavorites and luminous diamonds is the perfect accessory to make your holiday outfit a little bit more festive. Since it’s such a bold piece, it’s best paired with a simple cocktail dress or an all-over black ensemble.

Ruby Diamond Earrings
Elegant, classic, and festive all at once, these ruby diamond earrings will look great with any outfit. Because they’re relatively minimal, they will complement a more elaborate outfit. These stunners sparkle with rubies and round brilliant diamonds that will make any outfit look instantly more luxe and glamorous.
Dress up your wrists this holiday season with a statement watch, like this Bulgari beauty. The LVCEA watch shines with the radiance of 18k rose gold, cabochon-cut rubellite, and diamonds. A timeless piece, you can head to your holiday parties in style–and wear it well beyond the seasonal festivities. Telling the time has never been so chic.

Pearls are imperative for festive holiday style, according to Completedworks Artistic Director, Anna Jewsbury.
“There’s just something really great about wearing them in the winter,” she says. “With so much going on during this time of year, [I’ve found that] ear cuffs are a really good way of accessorizing if you don’t want to be wearing earrings all the time.”
Elevate your outfit with Tiffany & Co.’s precious Pearl Bracelet, which features a string of South Sea cultured pearls with an 18k gold clasp.
Chatelaine Pavé Bezel Ring
Reign in the holiday season wearing this beautiful bold ring. Set in 18k yellow gold, it features a champagne citrine centerpiece surrounded by pavé diamonds. Rings really don’t come better than this. Unique, bold, and sparkly, David Yurman’s Chatelaine Pavé Bezel Ring is the ideal accessory for sprucing up your holiday look.
