The holidays are nearly upon us and this year calls for serious celebration as the world attempts to return to normal and festivities can return. That means it’s either time to break the jewels out of the vault or take the opportunity to restock. Thankfully, jewelers haven’t shied away from strong statement pieces. It’s all about sleek drama in sizeable gems, elongated chains and striking geometric shapes. The best part of this year’s settings? Most can be dressed up or down and while you’re likely itching to put them on with a gown after your evening wardrobe’s hiatus, they will get as much mileage with your now seemingly endless array of casual attire. Some of the highlights include Vendorafa’s dancefloor-ready gold and diamond Hula Hoop70 choker, Tiffany & Co.’s versatile and striking yellow gold and aquamarine Jewel Box necklace and Louis Vuitton’s blingy white gold and diamond L’Elan Vital bracelet and ring. Take your pick of these high-impact pieces and have everyone drooling by the time the party circuit hits.
