Holiday Gift Guide: For the Zen Seeker

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 birthstone for December—perfect for those celebrating birthdays during the holidays.
