Holiday 2021 promises to be a season of sparkling jewelry choices. The creativity in which Gabriel & Co. has designed fresh pieces and found compelling ways of selling through the pandemic has launched a whole new experience for shopping their website and working one-on-one with their friendly and knowledgeable online staff. It has also created a feeling of exuberance when shopping for gifts for your loved ones. And don’t forget the, “one for them, one for you” philosophy — especially when you find a piece that resonates with you on all levels. You could put it on your own wish list but depending on your budget — if you can afford it — then treat yourself.
But enough about you. Let’s talk about the diamonds that were seen on A-listers at every celebrity event from Cannes to the Venice Film Festival to the Met Gala and the Emmy Awards. They say three times is a trend and this was more than three, so the diamond jewelry styles we saw constitute a direction that will go forward well into the future. Gabriel’s diamonds are for every day. They offer enough sparkle for any occasion and are versatile enough to wear with your entire fashion wardrobe — and are perfect for holiday parties and other events you might be attending depending on the vaccination protocol. After all, staying safe is the best gift of all.
But back to the styles that make great gifts for Holiday 2021. The trends haven’t changed that much but new pieces have been rejuvenated with captivating details. Hoops get a lift with double diamond styles in two-tone metals. There are long swingy gypsy styles in earrings. And for those special occasions, Gabriel & Co. offers diamond-encrusted pendant earrings. For necklaces, look for more delicate layering pieces, different styles of diamond bars and updates on basic solitaires. Bracelets climb up the wrists, twinkling with accents of pavé. Rings can be stacked or worn on different fingers as before and are equally enticing.
