Some women can be hard to buy for. Many of us have very individual tastes, but you will usually not go too far wrong by choosing jewelry as a holiday gift. We’ve highlighted some of our favourite jewelry gifts for 2017 below. These jewelry gifts under $150 for women would make great holiday gifts for Christmas, Chanukah, or Kwanzaa. [Disclosure: I received the following products on a complimentary basis in order to complete my review.]
Mademoiselle Earrings by Fredrick Prince Artisan Jewelry
I had heard of Fredrick Prince Jewelry before, but was not really familiar with their line. I love the Bohemian look of the Mademoiselle Earrings by Fredrick Prince Artisan Jewelry. The earrings are made from Labradorite and glass beads that dangles are the bottom. These earrings have an artistic yet glamorous look to them, which I love. And they are affordable at $69. What I really like about these earrings is the length: they are long enough – 2.25″ – that they are still visible with my long hair, yet they are light, so they don’t weigh my ear lobes down. I also think that the brass colour is neutral enough to wear with many outfits including burgundy, pink, navy, black, brown, beige, and winter whites. If you’re in the Dundas and Ossington area, check out Fredrick Prince’s bricks-and-mortar shop at 808 Dundas Street West where you’ll find Melissa’s original necklaces, bracelets and earrings. But be forewarned: I don’t think you’ll walk out of the store without buying something you just have to have!
Beblue Be Surya Single Bracelet
Receiving Beblue jewelry is a pleasant experience from the start. The packaging is gorgeous. My Beblue Be Surya Single Bracelet in Gold, $100, arrived in a silver envelope tied with silky ribbon, which was placed in a lovely box also tied with ribbon. I knew something special was going to be inside and I wasn’t disappointed. The Beblue Be Surya Bracelet in gold is dazzling without being too flashy. The expandable bracelet easily expanded to fit over my hand. It’s a classy bracelet that can be worn alone or with some of my other bracelets, including this silver and gold chain bracelet. The Swarovski crystal in the center of the Be Surya bracelet is a smoky gray colour, which provides a beautiful contrast to the gold beads on the bracelet. The Be Surya bracelet is sterling silver, with a 14k gold-plated finish.
Tryst Sterling Silver Rhodium Plated 2-Layer Triangle Necklace from Elle Time & Jewelry
The Tryst Sterling Silver Rhodium Plated 2-Layer Triangle Necklace from Elle Time & Jewelry, $139 CAD, caught my eye because I was looking for a longer necklace that would drop below the neckline, but I didn’t want anything that was too formal looking. I love the contemporary design of this necklace with its two different size triangles. This necklace is delicate yet not so much that it can’t be seen: it makes a subtle statement and I have received many compliments on it. The necklace comes in a box that will help keep the chains untangled. The necklace length is 28″ and there is a 2″ extender. Versatile enough to be worn with tops and jeans or with my favourite holiday dress, I know I will be wearing this necklace for a long time, which makes it is one of the best jewelry gifts under $150 for women. You can purchase the Tryst Sterling Silver Rhodium Plated 2-Layer Triangle Necklace from Elle Time & Jewelry online.
Circle Bracelet in White with Rhodium from Swarovski
Swarovski’s Circle Bracelet in White with Rhodium, $110, makes a great jewelry gift under $150 for her since it is so versatile. This bracelet can be worn casually with jeans (as pictured above) or dressed up with blouses and skirts. This bracelet can be worn with other silver bracelets for a stacked bracelets effect.
Rose Gold Fill Twist Necklace in Small from Dianne Rodger Jewellery
I love the Rose Gold Fill Twist Necklace in Small, $122, from Dianne Rodger Jewellery because first of all, it’s rose gold, which is so popular these days. I also like that this necklace straddles a fine line between being delicate and being eye-catching. The rose gold twist is original and contemporary: I don’t think I’ve seen other necklaces with this twist. You can get the rose gold twist in a larger size, but I like the size of the small twist. I could also see pairing this necklace with a longer rose gold chain for a different look.
Mariell Tailored Solitaire Drop Earrings with Brilliant Round Crystals in Rose Gold from Amazon
These Mariell Tailored Solitaire Drop Earrings are a wonderful choice for jewelry gifts under $150 for women since they are an update on a classic style. The drop style and crystals give these earrings a formal look, yet the rose gold gives these earrings a contemporary style. No, these aren’t earrings that I would wear to the grocery store; they are a little more elegant than that, deserving to be worn out to dinner or to formal occasions.
