Shortly after the dining-induced daze of Thanksgiving Day has worn off, holiday gift-giving anxiety starts to set in. Luckily, shoppers can cross a few beloved giftees off their lists in one fell swoop this year, thanks to chic pieces from the new David Yurman Holiday 2015 themes: A Burst of Color, Something with Diamonds and Something with Gold. The seasonal selections from this iconic jewelry brand feature dazzling jewels in colorful hues, from classic diamonds to pink sapphires, surrounded by choice precious metals such as sterling silver and 18-karat gold, that will impress fine jewelry aficionados and style enthusiasts alike. Choose from a tastefully curated mix of stackable rings, flattering necklaces, statement bracelets, and twinkling earrings, with delicate touches ranging from classic to trendy, that are sure to complement every lucky lady in your life. Below, we break down a few themes and pieces that will perfectly suit those hard-to-buy-for names on your list.
The Ultra-Hip Sister
It can be daunting to find a gift for your lifelong partner-in-crime, especially when she seems to always rock the latest trends, pulled straight from the hottest sartorial blogs. But you’ll be guaranteed to please her with a piece or two from this traditional-meets-modern theme. From the stacking possibilities of the cable bracelet to the pearl accents and array of necklaces (featuring accent details such as a jewel-encrusted letter charm) begging to be layered, these pieces will be seamless additions to her ever-current wardrobe. If she’s not a fan of the sparkly stone look, the Venetian quatrefoil single-row cuff bracelet in gold—made up of 18-karat gold, and also available in rose gold—was inspired by Renaissance art and architecture for a look that’s both understated and surprisingly contemporary.
The Woman Who Has Everything
She's always put together—sporting impeccably tailored designer ensembles in the office and strutting through the halls in high-end heels. But instead of feeling intimidated when it's time to snag a standout gift this holiday season for the woman who has everything, show her you share her keen eye for the finer things by indulging her with a slinky stunner from the wintry theme. Chock-full of details like starburst shapes (which David and Sybil Yurman created after gleaning inspiration from fireworks in the night sky), glittering gems and Yurman's signature rope-style bands, a piece from this theme will prove to her you've got your eye on the prize. In particular, the sterling silver Starburst Y necklace with pave diamonds and an adjustable baby-box chain design will allow her to flawlessly transition from a big board meeting to after-work drinks in a flash.
The Funky Best Friend
For your gal pal who loves to be the center of attention (she’s no stranger to a music festival or a dance floor) and never shies away from the spotlight, a piece from this modern theme will be the perfect addition to her accessories arsenal. The playful-yet-sophisticated adornments, from pinky rings to ID bracelets, make a statement when worn one at a time, or can be combined with a pair of bracelets or a row of twinkling rings—in gemstone colors including green onyx and blue sapphire—to create a fun look that will ensure double-takes in any crowd. The petite pave ring (inspired by the lights of downtown New York City) features three rows of pink sapphires with regular and dark sterling silver and a shape ready for easy layering, all to ensure she’ll stay the center of attention.
