It’s the Holidays!  We make the mad dash to secure lovely gifts for family and friends, and search for the perfect outfit for Holiday events.  If you read my Blog from last week, you already have your party dress chosen, and now comes the fun part of accessorizing and scoring some amazing prezzies for your peeps! 

In Today’s Style tip I am featuring some seriously striking fine jewelry for the festive season and beyond!  Who does not love the classic gift of Jewelry?  Gary Ciccione & Ron Nikel, Goldsmiths, and the owners of Oak Park Jewelers have been creating custom designed pieces at their family operated jewelry business, since 1985.  “We want to make sure everyone who comes into the store leaves happy”, says Gary.  I have had the pleasure to work with the spirited Sam Ciccione for several years; he always greets me with a huge smile, and ‘ring pops’ candy for my kids.  Guaranteed to make you feel glamourous: here is your Glitter guide from Oak Park Jewelers: 

Oh my, one would have to be a very good girl to receive this stunning black onyx, blue sapphire & diamond cocktail ring; also, the white gold/ pave diamond surrounding the 2.15 emerald cut Aquamarine ring - my eyes are getting dilated just looking at it!  Knock ‘em out with the 1.86 carat diamond hoop earrings, from the Sylivie collection. Rock these beauties on New Year’s Eve, them wear them everyday the rest of the year: delicate, gold chain & diamond circle bracelets, gold & diamond studded pendant & freek-out worthy checkerboard cut turquoise & pave diamond earrings.  Give your boyfriend or husband some global style with the attention commanding watches from Tissot & Swiss Army.  You can then steel it from him and sport it around town on your own wrist!

In my effort to bring you a price - variety of treasured options, I am also featuring fashion jewelry from our local Stella & Dot stylist, Vera Chan.  Whether those on your list are fashionistas or sophisticates, there is something here for everyone.  Vera has an amazing collection of timeless necklaces, earrings, pendants, rings & bracelets all fabricated with semi-precious stones, fresh water pearls, gold vermeil & sterling silver. Check out her gift guide:  

Feel like a million bucks, or play Santa and give the gift that keeps giving!  Go for the glow and plug into our local Jewelry treasure troves for yourself and your loved ones!
