For holiday shopping, I personally think there’s nothing better—more foolproof, at least—than something like a stacking band or layering necklace. Anything that can enhance someone’s collection without being overly cumbersome, without risking veering too far from their personal style, is key.
Of course, if the person you’re shopping for happens to love cocktail rings and you have a budget for a mega gemstone piece you know they’d love, by all means, buy that. But for those shoppers on a budget, or perhaps shopping for multiple gifts, pieces with a certain collectibility are where it’s at. For those, Trésor is a go-to brand.
Though the jeweler offers a wide array of pieces large and small, it’s the petite designs that have my attention for the holiday season: gemstone-adorned bands, irresistibly color-drenched and lovely alone or in a stack; layering necklaces that can be worn doubled or long; delicate gold bracelets sporting minimal-but-effective arrangements of gems; and slim hoop earrings that add panache to any personal style. Here’s what to score for your holiday stock (and remember—if big and bold is what you’re looking for, Trésor’s got that, too).
