2013 Gift Guide: 20+ Jewelry Picks

Jewelry (followed closely by beauty products) is one of my favorite gifts to give (and receive) because I just love the frivolity of it. It’s what a good present should be – indulgent and pretty. In the old days (pre-Pinterest), it might have been a little tough to chose jewelry for someone, but now that you can get a sneak peek at a style board, it should be easy to tell if your friend is lusting after gold or silver, something black or more colorful. I personally have a star thing that has been happening for a couple of years (which might be evident from my picks). Happy shopping! –Amy

  5. Kim says:

    Love the black Michael Kors watch! Would look great stacked with gold bracelets.

  6. Soledad says:

    I’m thrilled my knotted bracelet made it to your list Amy, honored! (and love the colorful board you made, wow) Happy Holidays :)

  7. I have to say its close enough to the Brass cuffs with various stones and pyrite that I’m looking for my mother that has its own uniqueness in to it! I was thinking a Handmade in NYC that one size fits most and slightly adjustable.

  8. I have to agree with Soledad’s comment…. love the knotted bracelet, as well as the black/gold bangle!

  9. Once again, love your selections. Would want to wear them with any dresses. The black feather earrings are my favorite ;)
