I’m going to let you in a secret: everything I love most from this year’s jewelry gift guides is in this post. Sadly, if had a spare $4,000 today I’d probably use it towards my student loans. Well, maybe $3,000 of student of loans and one of the pretties from yesterday. This is for those of you for deeper pockets, or those of you like me who love to admire and dream.
To revisit the jewelry gift guide for another price range, please click here: under $50, $50–$100, $100 – $250, $250 – $500, $500 – $1,000.
Antique Art Deco Chinoiserie glass bead bracelet with 14k gold ($2,9995).
This bracelet is SO cool. Look at those details! I hope it finds a good home.
Jemma Wynne Watermelon Tourmaline and Diamond Studs ($3,675)
My love for the things Jemma Wynne does with watermelon tourmaline knows no bounds, and these studs can show you why.
Van Cleef and Arpels Vintage Alhambra pendant in yellow gold with malachite and diamond. – Limited Edition ($3,900)
Normally I do a decent job of admiring rather than coveting jewelry that I can’t afford, but I failed with this pendant. The classic VC&A design with warm yellow gold and the spectacular color and lines of malachite? I want it and I want it badly.
Kara Ross Petra Smooth Contour Ring in Amethyst and Diamonds in 18K Gold ($4,500).
This piece is so modern and and cool and interesting.
