The holidays are here and its time to break out the bling. This season’s holiday jewelry has never been more bespoke. For the extroverts, there’s plenty of Maximalistic delights. For the Minimalists, there are equally sleek but captivating pieces to dominate the room without saying a word.
Intrigued? Let’s dive in!
OFF THE CUFF
We start with the runaway hit of the season – the cuff bracelet. Textured and hammered metal are the dominant incarnations, but not far off their heels are combinations of leather and metal, infusing a little funk and punk.
And while the traditional real estate on the wrist is completely acceptable, 2023 fashionistas are taking things up a bit, and wearing them on the upper arm (comfortably cuffed between the bicep and the deltoid).
This gold filigree version is a gorgeous play on substantial-meets-airy and light.
Kendra Scott, Candice Gold Filigree Cuff Bracelet $80

Hoops are certainly not new to the holiday jewelry line-up. This season, we’re channeling our inner early aughties, and rocking the tube hoops (a la Halle Berry).
