This Christmas: Inexpensive Designer Watches

The wrist watch is that rare gift that is stunning and impressive, but also a safe bet. Everyone needs more socks, but give someone a pair of socks for Christmas and watch the look of delight fade from their faces. Everyone needs to be able to tell time, and when you give a beautiful watch, their eyes simply light up. Whether you’re buying a gift for your wife or your husband, your friend or your co-worker, your brother, your sister, your mom or your dad, a good wrist watch can really create some happy moments.

Jewelry Gift Guide: Mom and Dad

Every year during the holidays, many jewelry stores seem to focus on getting jewelry for certain loved ones on your list. In most cases, that seems to be limited to that special woman in your life.

It’s also the official start of apple season, which entails buying ALL OF THE APPLES, baking in my house, pretending to bake at my friends’ house, and going on Instagram photoshoots apple picking with your girlfrands in riding boots and ponchos.

Ippolita is having a moment, and arguably started off the slice jewelry trend a few years ago. We still aren’t purchasing many pieces from their Lollipop collections, and that means it’s still hot hot hot – typically I’ll start noticing more and more of a certain style or “it piece” in the showcases as its popularity wanes and the owners sell to RLJ or come in to trade for something new. So current Ippolita pieces are diamonds in the rough at RLJ. Read More →
