Great Gifts: A Sampling of Jewelry for Her

And I mean, a sampling. There is so much out there - but here's a few that should please most..

Why not dazzle her with these sparkly long leaf earrings from Ann Taylor - and the price is right, $49 PLUS 40% OFF on the day of this posting. 


The new look are chunky costume bib necklaces - but watch out as many look cheap. Here is one that's not too big and is neutral in tone, but it doesn't diminish it's wow factor. It will work whether she's a gold or silver girl. She can dress up jeans or go cocktail or formal and light up the room. And it can go with just about any color outfit. From Anthropologie.com for $79.



Pretty drop pearl earrings. Simple, and adds a touch of elegance.  Available in silver or gold (pictured) with a white pearl. They also have an unusual rose gold with pink pearls.  You can see all of them if you click the link.   Now half price at $55 from Red Envelope.


And below - chic and sleek - Wrist cuffs in gold color, from JCrew for $68. TIP: 30% off as of this date with code HOLIDAY.


Does she like simple jewelry? I happen to love the fine little necklaces - they add that little bit of extra to an open shirt or vee neck but doesn't walk into the room before I do. It's barely there and feels like it too. But they are hard to find. 

I found a store on Etsy where they make them to order.  Sweet and pretty for every day wear. I love this easy artist - EDOR. CLICK HERE to buy the green hearts below for $23 - but there are SO many delicate little delights - CLICK HERE to see them all. Hurry to order though - she makes each individually and lists her shipping deadlines to have you get it before 12/24.



Ooh la la! Very classy - and versatile. Swarovski Crystal CAL Cosmic Triangle pendant on black, blue, purple or red satin cord with handmade silver clasp. Modern, contemporary and goes with anything.  Buy on Etsy from artist DC Langer for $59. I want!


Does she light up your life? Never seen something like this before, and all the customer reviews are great. From EPICGLOWS on Etsy-  various sizes glows turquoise and a light green in the dark. Several designs and sizes to choose from, ranging between $25-31. A steal.



So simple and pretty, pretty much an all round pleaser - for your little girl, your teen or college kid, or the special woman in your life.  The set includes ONE letter and ONE stud - so if you wanted both her initials, you'd have to order two - so she'd get a set of her 2 initials, plus a set of 2 studs. But I like the idea of an R and a jewel post on the other. This could be great for people with multiple ear piercings too. CLICK HERE to buy for $32


I walked into a local store and was drawn to the truly beautiful white-silver shine and quality of a few rings on the hands of a woman there, and asked her about them. Turns out she - Casssandra Mae - makes them by hand from vintage/heirloom flatware - only silver. And thank goodness she has an Etsy shop, so you too can have not just one, but several. Take a look and choose on NotSoFlatware.com. She does an absolutely beautiful job - whether your special someone likes things more simple:

Or more ornate:


Cassie also makes some necklaces and earrings - each are one of a kind. She will custom make a few things, she said. What I don't know is if she can alter the size of one of the rings you see that you like. I'm sure there is a little wiggle room so contact her to ask. Be sure to order in time for delivery before the holiday.

For your Rock and Roller or Motercycle Babe: Most wear silver with black leather but these are so elegant and high quality I can't imagine she wouldn't like them. The link shows a close up of the beads and you will see- has good jet black spikes and I almost never find jet beads. The best. $49.50 online and 40% MORE OFF with code BRMERRY40.


This would be worth buying the cool bracelet too, which she can layer with others when she's wanting an edgy look. CLICK HERE to buy for $45 PLUS 40% OFFwith the code BRMERRY40.


Look at this really unique, for the woman with feminine or Victorian tastes. A ruffled Gold dipped lace necklace. The chain is 16" long, extendable to 18",  and the lace bib runs 5" long by 1" wide. Buy at Uncommon Goods for $225.

Or you can go for this more affordable Lace Heart Necklace for $42. CLICK HERE to see an assortment of earrings, pendants and bracelets in gold, culver and copper too. 
Is does she like prints and natural fabrics, Native American indian designs, turquoise, blue jeans? These unusual earrings might appeal - or something like it . Made of Agate, Russian amazonite, brass plated metal, acrylic, glass 2.5"L, 1.25"W  Buy at Anthropologie for $29.95


Or how about these soft opal - great for any hair color, also from Ann Taylor for $49.50 but add another 40% OFF at checkout as of today's posting. 


There are SO so many choices of costume jewelry and so many price points. Here are a few places to check out for yourself:


Ann Taylor (40% off online orders)


Banana Republic (40% off online orders till 12/16 with code: BRMERRY40)

Macy's (they always have discounts, especially if you open an account)

TIP: If she's hoping for an engagement ring, avoid giving jewelry altogether if you're not going to propose this holiday. Trust me. 

And if you like something, don't get bracelet, earrings and necklace. Less is more and it's all too matchy-matchy as they say, so any two of those would do.
