15 Celebration-Worthy Jewels to Ring in the New Year in Glittering Style

All the planning, gift-wrapping, crazy traveling, and anxious anticipation of the holidays has nearly come to a head. But it’s called the holiday season for a reason: When the 25th of December passes, the celebrations are far from over. New Year’s Eve is one of the most beautiful celebrations of the entire year. It brings everyone together, regardless of what holidays they celebrate or where they come from and provides a look back at the beauty of the year nearly gone by. You celebrate the good times, the tough ones that you made it through, and wish each other love and success in the year to come. So whether you or your customers celebrate at a ball, in a warm home with your feet on the couch, or even at the beach, here are some jewels to make that special night sparkle even more.

Black-tie Affair


Try red-carpet favorites like a signature statement bracelet or a pair of diamond drop earrings for a complementary look that doesn’t compete with, but rather enhances, the gorgeous dress that everyone will be talking about.

A Cozy Night In


Nothing wrong with throwing on a pair of sequin pants and cozying up on the sofa (to be honest, that’s likely what I’ll be doing). But a night in doesn’t mean all festivities have to go by the wayside. A pair of diamond hoop earrings or a special pendant keep it fuss free but provide just the right amount of sparkle to feel glamorous and beautiful—even for those of us rocking sweat pants.

At the Beach


Ah, the sun and sand. Such beautiful surroundings for ringing in the New Year. And while I could never condone piling on diamonds for the beach (that would just be irresponsible), let’s assume, just for fun, that it’s completely safe, and your customers have promised they won’t lose anything in the sand, okay? Good, because some of my most favorite glittery pieces happen to be inspired by the sea and make for the most beautifully festive looks.
