The holiday season calls to mind certain visuals: frosted windowpanes, bright white snowmen, crystalline icicles dripping picturesquely from pine trees. Bright whiteness gleaming all around.
Beautiful, yes, but cold cold cold. Brrrr.
While I usually let the frosty glint of the season’s temperature inspire my holiday accessorizing (think big, mostly fake white crystal bling), I’m feeling something different for this year. I want to go chic, sleek, and warm.
As soon as I saw these pieces from Gabriel and Co’s fall collection, I knew that they were the kind of rocks I wanted to rock for this year’s winter holidays.
Just look at the choker above. Can’t you imagine its delicate, dynamic form gracing your decolletage as you sip a glass of champagne with candied ginger by a fire? It would catch the light and glimmer brightly, a flash of warmth against the cold starkness outside.
These ear climbers – obviously from the same Gabriel and Co collection – feature the same warm brightness. Slashes of gold dashed with diamonds, waiting to elevate any outfit your heart desires.
My favorite holiday jewelry is jewelry you can wear all year round (although I’d be lying if I told you I’d never bought snowman earrings at Claire’s). These perfect, precise arcs of diamond-strewn yellow gold would transition perfectly to any season.
I love the gently curved geometry of this open cuff. You could wear it with any of the other pieces featured here, or pretty much anything else on earth.
Speaking of perfect for every season: how amazing are is this earring/ear jacket set? Simultaneously lush and subtle; and so versatile.
