Holiday Season Jewelry Guide

Holiday Season Jewelry Guide

Holiday gift shopping can be a nightmare! So many gifts to buy and so little time to get them.  At JupiterGem we’re here to make your life easier with some jewelry gift ideas for 2022-2023. We’ve curated a list of the hottest trends and timeless classics to inspire you and make your gift giving easy.

Birthstone Jewelry

Birthstone jewelry has been a big trend for the past few years and it shows no sign of going away. It’s a wonderful way to personalize a piece of jewelry and add a special significance to something beautiful. You don’t just have to give someone their own birthstone though: the gift of a baby’s birthstone to a new parent is incredibly meaningful and giving someone you love a piece of jewelry combining both your birthstones is a beautiful way to show your devotion.

January’s birthstone is the garnet, available in a rich variety of hues. The regal purple amethyst is the stone for February. March babies can sail away on the aquamarine – its name taken from the Latin for seawater. A classic diamond will spoil those born in April. May’s birthstone is the gorgeous green emerald. Emerald by day, ruby by night, the enigmatic color-changing Alexandrite is the spectacular birthstone for June.

Moving on to the second half of the year, July has the ‘king of gems’, the ruby. Lucky August babies have two gems, the peridot and spinel – these may not be as well known, but they offer a stunning array of bright colors to choose from. September is the month of the sapphire, available in the classic velvety deep blue as well as a range of other colors. October offers both the fiery opal and the multi-colored tourmaline. November babies have the choice of the golden citrine and colorful topaz. Finally, for those born in December, you have the privilege of having the incredibly rare, spectacularly beautiful, purplish-blue tanzanite as your birthstone.

Statement Jewelry

The holiday season is peak party time so why not gift a piece of statement jewelry guaranteed to get the recipient in the festive mood? Cocktail rings, chandelier earrings and bold bracelets will liven up any outfit and make sure your gift is the talk of the gathering.

A cocktail ring is a great vehicle to show off spectacular stones that are not durable enough for everyday wear: think a massive violet-blue tanzanite enclosed by white diamonds and set in the iciest platinum. Alternatively, a neon blue paraiba tourmaline pendant is certain make a statement in even the fullest room.

Remember: more is more and you can never have too much color and sparkle!

Classic Jewelry

If you’d rather gift something that can be worn everyday, the classics never go out of style. A simple tennis bracelet is the epitome of elegance and goes with everything. Why not try a modern twist with one of our rainbow gemstone versions?

Stud earrings, too, are a staple of every wardrobe. Timeless iterations include sapphires or rubies with a diamond halo. If you wanted to make a set, a matching pendant and/or ring would be a wonderful idea.

Initial Pendants

Make it personal with an initial pendant. Another key trend recently, these are a jewelry box must-have. Like birthstones, you can gift someone their own initial or that of someone they love. They’re a fun way to add a little bit of sentiment to a necklace and allow someone to keep those they value near to their heart. We have a wonderful selection of diamond encrusted versions available in yellow or white gold.
