Text By Kathryn Brooks

Let Christmas be the perfect excuse to add a new piece of jewelry to your collection. Whether your significant other is looking for a gift that will take your breath away or you want to treat yourself, selecting just the right one can be difficult. Here are five designers that top our list.


Barneys New York

Judy Geib’s handmade pieces of jewelry are humble, extravagant, playful, and above all, unique. She loves opals, emeralds and pink tourmalines and travels to the source for these stones. By combining fine quality and impeccable design, Geib creates jewelry that women want to wear. >>







Tiffany & Company

Born in Paris to the legendary artist Pablo Picasso and Françoise Gilot, Paloma Picasso is a true artist in her own right. Her boldly original style is defined by brilliant colored gemstones. In 1980, the designer’s first exclusive collection of jewelry was introduced at Tiffany.








Coomi’s trademark look is easily recognizable – feminine and powerful lines and motifs, handcrafted in high karat gold that include rose cut diamonds and precious gemstones. The designer’s creations are works of art, a nod to the past, yet very modern – treasures that will stand the test of time.









Barneys New York

Bold, feminine and romantic are the words Sara Weinstock uses to describe her jewelry. Her recent work is more forward, including ear cuffs and midi-rings. Architectural lines, fine lacework and a delicate color palette are the distinctive marks of Weinstock’s unique creations.


Neiman Marcus

A seasoned world traveler, Elizabeth Locke’s jewelry uses uncommon elements that only can be found in extraordinary locales. From Classical Greek coins and Venetian glass intaglios to antique carnelian seals and South Sea pearls, these components place Locke in a class by herself.
