The Best Holiday Jewelry to Gift Yourself

We’ve got one question for you: Why wait? You know what you want, and you know why you deserve it. So treat yourself to the perfect holiday jewelry.

The Best Holiday Jewelry to Gift Yourself

The holiday season is rife with expectations, hopes for the perfect present, the perfect moment with family, the perfect break from the year-round grind. This holiday build-up is super common, but unfortunately, it’s often followed by a subsequent holiday disappointment. Our expectations can often get the better of us. 

Which begs the question: when it comes to your dream end-of-the-year reward, why should you have to cross your fingers and hope?

Our thoughts at James Allen are- go ahead and get it for yourself! 

If you’ve had a big year, a difficult year, an achievement-filled year, or a year with a bit of extra cash waiting at the finish line – gift yourself! Buy yourself the holiday jewelry holiday you’ve been jonesing after the one on your Pinterest board, the one that keeps popping up in your Instagram ads, which one? That one. 

Would you just love a pair of diamond studs? Or a glittering tennis bracelet? Go for it. It’s yours. 

We’ve arranged a selection of our most popular pieces. They’re divided into 3 categories, depending on how much you want to spend to treat yourself: quick bite, solid purchase, and splurge.

Princess-Cut Diamond
Stud Earrings

Two high-clarity princess-cut diamonds shine in these yellow gold stud earrings. The open-sided, double-leveled setting ensures that the maximum amount of light will strike the two diamonds’ many facets and produce immense sparkle.

This luxe rose gold eternity ring is embedded all around with diamonds weighing 0.5, 1, 1.5, or 2-carats. The crescendoing fishtail setting elegantly displays the dozens of diamonds that line this ring’s entire circumference.

Treat Yourself to A Summary
