You’re making your lists, you’re checking them twice—and don’t think that being an editor precludes us from that. Call it an occupational hazard, but I generally have a running wish list of pieces I’ve worked with that I wish I could add to my personal collection or gift to friends and family. It often isn’t the blingiest that makes either list, but pieces with nuance, meaning, and a je ne sais quoi.
It also turns out I’m not the only one in the jewelry department with their hopes up this holiday season. We have combined our top jewelry gifts at various price points to act as a crib sheet or inspiration point for all other wish-list creators and gift givers out there (may some of ours look at this list too!). Ahead, shop the best jewelry gifts at every price.
