Give a little sparkle this holiday season! If you're looking for the perfect holiday gift to give this year, head to your local Jewelers of America-member jeweler. Start your 2017 holiday gift list here with our handpicked gift guide featuring these top 10 jewelry gift trends for this holiday season.

1. Diamond Studs

Is there anything more classic than a pair of diamond studs? Diamond studs make for a great everyday look, but also transition well to complete a night out look or for a formal event. “Personally, less is more. So with that being said, diamond earrings, with a diamond bracelet and ring. You want everything to complement each other and not overpower the outfit. The little black dress is usually enough for a woman, but the diamonds add that bit of sparkle to her outfit.” –Goldsmith Jewelers Inc., North Royalton, OH

2. Y-Shape Necklaces

Y-Shape necklaces are on trend yet have great staying power, so you know she will wear this necklace for years to come. Y-shape necklaces can be simple with diamond or gemstone accents or more substantial with pendants.

3. Stackable Rings and Bracelets

Help her start her own arm party or ring stack by giving the gift of stackable jewelry. The more the merrier when it comes to accessorizing! Plus, you can help her collection grow when the next milestone or occasion comes around. “Layering on every surface is a fashion must this season! Build your jewelry wardrobe one unique piece at a time.” –Linnea Jewelers, La Grange, IL

4. Rose Gold

We're tickled pink by the blush hues of rose gold jewelry. Rose gold complements just about any skin tone and has a romantic appeal. Go for a classic piece set in rose gold, or try a style with complementary gemstones. 

5. Chokers

Choker necklaces are making a comeback in a big way, and they are definitely here to stay. It's a stylish way to add a statement to your look. “I love the new take on chokers! Also layering them is so great as well with long necklaces.” –Elements, Ltd., Des Moines, IA

6. Colored Gemstones Set in Sterling Silver

Sterling silver is an affordable luxury, so consider choosing a piece with colored gemstones set in sterling silver. The bright stones are sure to pop against the metallic look.

7. Drop Earrings

You know her favorite color – and you may even know her favorite gemstone – so why not choose gemstone drop earrings that match her vibrant personality? Or, go for a dazzling look by choosing sparkling diamond drop earrings to frame her face.

8. Pearls

Pearls are always a classic choice that will never go out of style. Choose a piece of pearl jewelry that can become an instant heirloom. “One can create a great jewelry wardrobe using a strand of black and white pearls and changing ruby or emerald enhancers with chains and pearls.” –Diamonds, Pearls & Jade, Columbus, OH

9. Gifts Under $500

Fine jewelry doesn’t have to break the bank. Look for gifts under $500 that have versatility and feel personal like wrap bracelets that can be transformed to long necklaces, or jewelry with messages that show your love.

10. The Jewelry Store Experience

Don’t forget about giving the gift of the shopping experience. A gift card to your local jeweler will let her experience the joy of shopping for something that speaks to her. Be sure to talk to your jeweler about what options are available for the amount of the card and dress up your gift by wrapping it in a jewelry box.

It’s natural for white gold to fade, sometimes yellowing, here’s why. Most white gold rings are flash plated with a very, very thin coating of rhodium (a pure white metal) to give them a more brilliant, pure white appearance. This rhodium plating will wear off over time and reveal the white gold ring underneath. Because pure gold is very yellow, no matter how much you alloy it with other white metals like zinc and nickel, it will almost always retain some of its yellowish body color.
