Dec 08, 2015
Budget-Friendly Gifts That Will Leave Her Breathless

As we prepare for the madness of the Christmas season shopping rush, our jewelry stylists got together last week and picked their top ten favorite gifts for 2015 that are under $500. While they had a plethora of styles and categories to choose from that wouldn’t break the piggy bank, these gorgeous gifts are our best jewelry picks from leading designers that will certainly be winning stocking stuffers this holiday.

1) John Hardy Bamboo Bracelets

An elegantly packaged gift, this set of three bangle bracelets was hands down the favorite piece by several women here at King Jewelers. Handmade in Bali, John Hardy’s iconic ladies bangles are the perfect gift for the woman who loves to stack bracelets. The Bamboo collection is extremely comfortable for everyday casual wear and layers nicely next to a stainless steel and diamond watch. A staple and must have for any John Hardy fan!

2) Mikimoto Pearl Stud Earrings

When it comes to quality, there’s no question that Mikimoto pearls are by far the best pearls in the world. The perfectly round pearls always have extraordinary luster and life, having passed the strictest quality control to earn the Mikimoto stamp. These classic white pearl earrings are sweet and versatile, no matter if you’re looking to wear them at lunch with the girls or to a black tie wedding. All Mikimoto pearl jewelry comes in an elegant dark blue Mikimoto box with a white interior to feature these classic and timeless gifts of beauty that can eventually become a timeless heirloom. Mikimoto pearls simply make for an incredible gift giving experience.

3) Ippolita Silver Hoop Earrings

Bold and sleek, these handmade sterling silver hoops from Ippolita embody feminine Italian fashion that could grace the catwalks of Milan. They go great with basically anything, and easily transition from day to night. These silver earrings have very secure clasps for hoop earrings to ensure that your gift hangs around for a really long time and continues to look good on her. The sleek Ippolita pouch and cleaning cloths make for an extra special little touch that really sets it apart from other holiday gifts.

4) Ippolita Wonderland Necklace

We’re in love with the tear-drop pendant style! While it’s not a five carat pear-shape diamond, this mini pendant from Ippolita is one of the most popular pieces from the renowned Italian designer. With a multitude of gemstone options in a variety of colors, this is a gift that is almost guaranteed to be a hit with any woman in your life.

5) APM Monaco Wide Open Ring

This ring is an awesome gift as it features a rich rose color and open micropave stone setting which women have just adored this year. While it has some minimalistic elements and an almost retro feel with the geometric design, APM Monaco has once again created an exceptional ladies fashion ring for an unbeatable price. Our stylist recommends pairing this fabulous ring with another rose design from APM Monaco…

6) APM Monaco Studded Huggie

For decades, the huggie-style hoop earring has been a comfortable everyday earring for any woman’s wardrobe. Along the way, the studded and spiked look has cycled in favor ranging from rockers like KISS to fashion designers such as Valentino and Christian Louboutin. Straight from the heart of fashion-forward European jewelry designs, these small rose hoop earrings complement a variety of outfits and styles while maintaining a unique personality of their own. If she receives these hoops as a gift come Christmas morning, she better be prepared to enjoy non-stop compliments!

7) John Hardy Ladies Bamboo Ring

If you haven’t noticed, our stylists are in love with John Hardy ladies jewelry and this wide black sapphire ring from the Bamboo collection. The philosophy behind the John Hardy Bamboo Jewelry collection is, “Borrowing inspiration from the forest, then giving back.” For each design you purchase, John Hardy plants seedlings of bamboo across Bali to offset carbon emissions. Bamboo Rings are available in diverse settings, from formal gemstone-sporting domes to beguiling multi-gemstone interlocking hybrids, but our top gift pick this holiday season is this trendy and sleek ring with black sapphires.

8) John Hardy Dot Bracelet

For something a bit different that is still versatile enough to work with any outfit, these John Hardy Dot earrings make a great gift. The elegant packaging and jewelry travel pouch really brings this gift to the next level. Enter the mystic temples of Southeast Asian art and connect the dots to luxury across time and place with the John Hardy Dot Jewelry Collection. Throughout the collection, patterns of alternating gold and sterling silver dots reappear in a constellation of ever more imaginative combinations.

9) Roberto Coin Classic Gold Hoops

Regarded as one of the finest Italian jewelers of the last hundred years, Roberto Coin provides extremely high-quality ladies gold jewelry at incredible prices. Classic yet sleek, these new yellow gold hoops are handcrafted in Italy and made to be worn everyday in style. As with all Roberto Coin pieces, a small red ruby is set in these earrings, hidden out of sight, as a good luck charm for the wearer.

10) Sydney Evan Pure Love Pendant

The holidays are all about love and joy, and nothing embraces this better than Sydney Evan’s gold pure love necklace. Proudly made in the USA, all of her designs are feminine, hip, and of fine quality. These designs are meant to be sweet and worn as an everyday pendant or even layered with other necklaces to create a unique, one-of-a-kind personal style. Sydney Evan jewelry can be found in some of the best boutique department stores such as Barney’s and Neiman Marcus, as well as leading authorized independent jewelry stores. This gift is sure to be a hit for women of any age group!
