FOR HER

Diamond Stud Earrings

Diamond stud earrings are always appropriate and can be worn everyday.  They will take you to your son or daughter’s soccer game in the afternoon, and a black-tie event at night.

The Diamond Pendant Necklace

There is nothing more classic than a diamond pendant necklace.  Never out of style, the classic necklace can be worn with jeans and a tee, or to the office.  Layer with other necklaces for an elevated look.

The Diamond Tennis Bracelet

Ever since Chris Everett wore a diamond line bracelet while playing in matches, the diamond bracelet has been known as the tennis bracelet. There is nothing more classic and beautiful than a diamond tennis bracelet. Wear it alone or with your other bracelets, this piece of jewelry is something you’ll love wearing for years to come.

The Pearl Necklace

While we love the single strand pearl necklace, we’re thinking of a different take on the classic.  Something that is the epitome of elegance yet still modern.  This Mikimoto 18K white gold 16-18″ necklace, featuring a 7MM A+ Quality Akoya Cultured Pearl and diamonds is the classic piece with a modern edge.

The Classic Wedding Band

You will never grow tired of a beautiful, classic diamond band. This stunning JB Star band features four emerald cut diamonds and three oval diamonds.  A real showstopper!

FOR HIM

Cuff Links

There is nothing more classic than a man in a french cuff shirt.  Cufflinks add that extra polish and sophistication that can run the gamut from dressy to casual, or they can be whimsical reflecting a favorite pastime or hobby.  For a timeless design, we suggest these classic yet modern cufflinks by David Yurman.

The Classic Wedding Band

A wedding band is something that a man wears every day. Not only a symbol of your love, devotion and commitment, your ring is a reflection of your personal style. Choose something that you love, while also choosing something that will never go out of style.  This wedding band by ArtCarved checks all those boxes.

The Sterling Silver Bracelet

Men have fully embraced wearing jewelry as a reflection of their personal style.  Men’s bracelets have risen in popularity over the years and we’re seeing everything from sterling silver to braided leather.  To jump in on this trend while still keeping it classic and timeless, we suggest this John Hardy bracelet in sterling silver.
