Holiday Gift Guide: For the Zen Seeker
The striking violet color of this amethyst gemstone is more than just eye candy. Legend has it that this form of quartz promotes clarity of the mind, relieves stress, and connects you more closely with your mind and soul. Bonus: this ring’s darker shade is totally on-trend.
Holiday Gift Guide: For the Nature Lover
Arguably the most beautiful plant in the world, the lotus flower has been prominent in Eastern cultures for centuries. The significance behind this particular flower is its ability to rise out of the water from muddy roots – it then blossoms daily into perfectly proportioned petals, without a trace of dirt. A perfect gift to highlight her natural strength and beauty.
Holiday Gift Guide: For the Art Connoisseur
If she’s always visiting museums and gallery-hopping or is an artist herself, look no further than this Art Nouveau-inspired necklace. The center stone comes with a storied past: “topaz” was named after Topazius, what the ancient Greeks called the island of Zebirget in the Red Sea. Blue topaz is also the December birthstone for December—perfect for those celebrating birthdays during the holidays.
Holiday Gift Guide: For the Minimalist
This delicate bracelet can be worn every day, dressed up or down. The pavé style lines up the diamonds to appear even more luminous. This bit of sparkle goes a long way.
Holiday Gift Guide: For the Vintage Enthusiast
For those who spend their weekend’s treasure hunting at bazaars, vintage rings and collectible things will never go out of style. Ruby is the most valuable variety of the mineral corundum (a.k.a. aluminum oxide, the second-hardest mineral after diamond). Impress her with this rare find.

Holiday Gift Guide: For the Party Hostess
In the midst of all the cocktail parties and holiday get-togethers, her emerald and gold piece will be the talk about the town. Gift her this pair of earrings with the gemstone notably worn on women such as Elizabeth Taylor and Cleopatra. Best paired with a bottle of champagne.
And Of Course… For Your Future Fiancée (!)
If you’re planning on popping the question during the holiday season, get thoughtful and customize a unique ring for your one and only.
