The Very Nice List: Our top jewelry gift picks for the Holidays


The magic of the season? We’d say it’s finding just the right gift. Something that reflects her unique personal style…and reflects well back on you. Of course, you can never go wrong with jewelry. For one thing, it always fits. And our new online gift guide can help you make sure it also fits her style and your budget. If you have a Modernista on your list, you’re sure to find bijoux and baubles she’ll love. We’ve gathered up some of our favorites and most popular modern jewelry styles under our Holiday Gift Picks tab. You can browse by style or price—there are choices for every budget. Then simply match her personal style to a gift, and you’ve found the perfect present. Just like magic.


Here are just a few highlights for those on the Very Nice List:

For the Minimalist.

For those who think less is best, check out our sleek array of minimalist jewelry. Some trinkets she’d love to find under her tree? The Nico Ring in Sterling Silver by Selin Kent features a minimalist double ring joined by an elegant vertical bar. Sheri Beryl’s long and lovely Curved Stick Earrings are first carved by hand in wax, then cast in Sterling Silver and plated in 18K Gold Vermeil. And Lumo’s delicate Gemstone Lariat Necklace drips with charm: your choice of Sapphire, Turquoise, Ruby or Carnelian gemstones dangling from a delicate gold-fill chain.

For the Trendsetter

For the woman who likes to be ahead of the curve, look to our many contemporary jewelry designers. The Sawtooth Lariat Necklace by India Morgan Jewelry is right on trend and features her trademark 14k Gold-plated sawtooth beads.Third Crown’s sleek Arc Choker has a fresh urban vibe and was inspired by the Arc De Triomphe and the shape of vintage handcuffs. Have you heard? Ear Jackets are all the rage. The Acanthus Jewelry Stellar Ear Jacket features oval Moonstone stud earrings set in oxidized Sterling Silver ear jackets with 24k Gold accents. 

For the Uptown Punk

Does she like things with a bit of edge? Dangerous curves ahead. How about Acanthus Jewelry’s Talon Cuff, which features rough textured Oxidized Sterling Silver with pointy tips dipped in 24K gold? Or Dana Bronfman’s 2 1/2 inch-long Inverted Cross Earrings, sporting sexy curves to frame her face and a hammered texture to showcase their hand-made origins. Stefanie Sheehan Jewelry’s Rose Gold Three Spikes Ring is handcrafted with a hammered finish in the surprise of Rose Gold.

For the Nature Lover

Nature-inspired jewelry is hot, hot, hot, and we’ve got tons of options. Case in point: the Long Baby Octopus Necklace from Michelle Chang Jewelry. A super-long Gold-fill chain sports an adorable Brass baby octopus with dazzling Ruby eyes. Merewif’s handcrafted jewelry is influenced by the alchemy of the sea. Their organic Coral Ring was created using a piece of ocean coral, and their Scale Current Necklace features an open weave scale-pattern pendant in 14K Gold-plate over brass.

And when you select a modern jewelry gift from Visible Interest, you can feel good not only for finding the perfect thing for the women on your list, but also for supporting a small business, as each piece is lovingly created by an independent jewelry designer who supports themselves through their art.
