Ok, so do you want the good news or the not-so-good news first? Yes, I thought so. I’m a give-me-the-bad-news-first kind of girl myself.
So: if you haven’t purchased a jewelry gift by this time, it’s pretty late to order something and expect it to arrive on time. Sorry.
Now the good news: there are still LOTS of beautiful jewelry options available at your local jeweler.
From beautiful basics like diamond solitaire earrings to designer jewelry, local jewelers can help guide you through the process of selecting the perfect piece. And if someone has been EXTRA good this year, those jewelers might have a very special, one-of-a-kind piece like this Robert Procop necklace (yes, exceptional jeweler Robert Procop of Angelina Jolie collaboration). With a hand-carved blue topaz as a centerpiece and a tactile tassel, this piece combines Old World workmanship with modern luxury. (P.S. Santa, if you are reading this, I think I’ve been super duper good and could easily justify lots of reasons why I need this particular necklace)
So, if you still need something, don’t despair. Your lovely local jeweler is ready and waiting to help. If you love the designers I feature on the site, some of my favorite retailers in the country represent those designers with the utmost integrity. Stores like Greenwich Jewelers in NYC; Deleuse Jewelers in Tiburon, CO; Single Stone in Los Angeles; Max’s in Minneapolis; Fox’s Gem Shop in Seattle; and many more…
