Finding the perfect gift for “her” can sometimes be overwhelming. What to choose? Something extravagant or practical? Unexpected or a specific item? Or maybe, he’ll be off the hook, and she’ll pick it up herself while she’s buying the rest of the Christmas gifts? A recent survey showed that nine out of ten women agree that jewelry is ALWAYS an acceptable holiday gift. Here are a few ideas:
For the trendsetter: A uniquely designed Chain Reaction Key necklace from Jennifer Montana Design. Inspired by the “keys that open doors in one’s life,” each piece is produced by individuals from Harbor House, a non-profit community center in Oakland.

For the diva: A sterling silver, 18k gold or rose gold bangle from the Atlas Collection at Tiffany & Company will win big points. The design is striking and contemporary, honoring a Tiffany icon (the clock at the flagship NYC 5th Avenue store). With or without diamonds, these pieces are forever stunning.

For the nature-lover: Earrings made by hand from natural materials from the earth and sea such as stones (minerals, precious and semi-precious gems), pearls, shells, wood and other natural, petrified or fossilized materials. Each piece celebrates a connection to Mother Earth. (Photo 3, available at Kathlyn Stone Jewelry, Danville)
For mom: Personalized jewelry from K. Pepper Jewelry will become a cherished keepsake. Designer Karen Hazarian creates rings, pendants and bracelets with the etched signatures of family members in sterling silver or bronze. You can duplicate a child’s first signature or a special message for one amazing gift. (Photo 4, available at www.karenhazarianjewelry.com)
P.S. There is no “recent survey,” but seriously, giving jewelry at Christmas is a really great idea. Happy Shopping!
