Let's face it—this last year has been formidable and full of unprecedented "firsts." As 2020 draws to a close, it goes without saying that we could all use a little joy and some serious sparkle right about now. Surprising someone with a piece of jewelry carefully chosen just for them is sure to add a little much-needed cheer this holiday season.

Need some hints on what to look for? Here are just a few of our favorites when it comes to jewelry design...

Ayala Bar has always been drawn to jewelry as a form of expression and is known for her intricate and vibrant designs. Her process includes "matchmaking materials," which means testing contrasts, colors, and textures to see how they interact together, resulting in unique pieces that always garner compliments.

Jill Schwartz (Elements) is renowned for her unique combinations of vintage and modern elements inspired by her love of antiques, fashion, and travel. Jill makes timeless jewelry, hair accessories, and holiday ornaments for people who love beautiful things and like to sparkle all year round. Jill's designs have been featured in magazines such as "Where Women Create" and "Leading the Artful Life."

Anne Vaughan (Anne Vaughan Designs) is yet another extraordinarily talented jewelry designer whose handcrafted, American-made pieces are loved by all. She is known for her beautiful, themed collections and the way that her pieces layer together cohesively.

And when you choose to invest in a piece of beautiful jewelry, what better than a luxurious velvet bag to store it in? We have those for you as well!

Our jewelry is carefully selected...

Much of it is lovingly handcrafted by local artisans, many of whom give back to their community when they make a sale. Whether you choose a predesigned or personally commissioned piece, you can be sure there is a lot of heart, soul, and craftsmanship that goes into its design and production.

For the woman who is inspired by music, friendship, and dreams, a piece by Alchemy is the perfect fit. Or choose wearable "music"—guitar strings that are cleverly upcycled into uncommon and exceptional jewelry.

And this year, what better gift to give the woman who has everything than a beautifully crafted mask lanyard by Lydia Santoro of Magpie Lydia! These colorful lanyards are not only a pretty accessory but are thoughtful, functional, and oh-so-practical! We love them!

"Jewelry is like the perfect spice. It always complements what's already there." —Diane von Furstenberg
