Are you getting in the spirit of the season and checking items off your gift-giving list?
If you need inspiration, we’ve asked the big names in jewelry for their must-have jewelry picks.
Danielle Miele from Gem Gossip picks pendants. But the type depends on her mood.
“I've been wearing lots of charms and pendants this year, so why not add to my growing collection than with a Stingray pendant (pictured) in opal designed by Rachel Atherley.
"I found her work on Instagram and have been a secret fan for a while now.
"Changing out charms and pendants on various chains has been fun to do and I wear different ones depending on my mood and what I'm doing that day.”

Olivia Landau, founder of The Clear Cut, and her followers have spoken on her choice:
“I’m excited about a new piece that we are launching at the Clear Cut! I originally designed the Olivia ring (pictured) for myself with diamonds I repurposed from a bracelet.
"It was something I made for fun but over time our Instagram followers have really fallen in love with it!
"It’s the perfect piece to wear every day and is available in our new collection!”

The Gem Therapist blog founder Arielle Klein’s must-have piece is from the Campbellian collection.
It’s a 20.05 ct. tourmaline (pictured) accented with garnets, spinels, Paraiba tourmaline and diamonds, set in platinum.

These are three gorgeous pieces, but maybe you’re still undecided. You can’t go wrong with personalizing your gift with someone’s birthstone. Check out our birthstone guide to find the stone that matches with the month you are looking for.
