3 JEWELRY PIECES TO INSTANTLY TRANSFORM YOUR HOLIDAY LOOK

SHOP THE LOOKBOOK
No holiday look is complete without accent jewelry. With a touch of gemstone sparkle or gleaming gold, even the most minimalist outfit can instantly transform into a head-turner. For proof of just how impactful one piece can be, look no further than our latest lookbook, In Brilliant Form, which features an array of stunning fine jewelry destined for this season’s celebratory soirees. So what’s the secret to finding that special statement piece that elevates the entire ensemble? According to Senior Merchant For Fine Jewelry & Watches, Serena Ramsey, the answer lies in these three essentials.

1. The Colorful Cocktail Ring

Gucci Cocktail Ring“Holiday festivities will be even more fun with a colorful ring to accessorize your cocktail glass,” says Ramsey. “I like wearing it on a non-traditional finger.” Make your ring a focal point by selecting a gemstone in a different shade from your outfit, or for an understated approach, choose a smooth cabochon stone. (“It’s more subtle,” Ramsey notes.) Her tip for the ultimate pièce de résistance: “Make it a double! A natural gemstone coupled with diamonds — like the Gucci ring in our lookbook — is a powerful combination.”

2. The Statement Earring

Asprey Earrings“If you’re wearing your hair back or in an updo for a dressy occassion, they’re the perfect stand-out piece,” says Ramsey. When deciding on a pair, consider what you’re wearing — the more simple and straight-forward your outfit, the bolder you can go. “I particularly like an earring with movement like a chandelier or drop style. It makes the look more playful, especially if there’s dancing involved.”

3. The Timeless Timepiece

Rolex Day-Date Watch“The key here is to go big and bold,” says Ramsey. She suggests selecting a classic Cartier or Rolex watch with a large face. “I’d wear it during daytime family gatherings, at evening company parties — to all of your holiday events,” she says. “It’s a signature piece.” For an added touch of sophisticated sparkle, consider a timepiece with diamond details for an especially festive feel.
