Thanksgiving Jewelry

If you read our last blog, you know we discussed holiday jewelry.  You may be thinking, “What about Thanksgiving”.  It wasn’t an oversight.  Thanksgiving’s roots reside in more Puritanical times, where any kind of adornment would probably lead to reprimand for being too gaudy or ostentatious.  Times have indeed changed and there’s no social construct that would forbid you from wearing any kind of Thanksgiving jewelry, but Thanksgiving is often thought of as a more casual gathering.  Maybe this is because you’re surrounded by familiar faces, or it could be that you’re about to fill yourself to the brim with turkey and all the trimmings and you want to be as comfortable as possible; oftentimes just jeans and a nice shirt will suffice.  However, even though Thanksgiving isn’t known for its dazzling display of fine jewelry, we’d like to encourage you to think outside the box and be that one fashion forward person that really “wows” when you’re handing that gravy boat to Uncle Steve.  Happy holidays.

Holiday Jewelry

Halloween was not long ago, and soon, Christmas will be upon us.  We all go to parties or social functions this time of year, but those two holidays, specifically, are very different from one another.  Halloween is much more casual so maybe you’re shopping for some costume jewelry, whether it’s for a get together, or a costume party that you need a Dracula medallion for.

Christmas always seems to be a little more formal.  Winter, in general, seems to exude a little more elegance.  People wear bold red colors accented with gold jewelry.  Some business functions around this time of year can get pretty formal, and rightfully so.  December, or your holiday party, may be the one time each year that everyone mingles amongst one another, and new business may develop as a result.  Therefore, everyone wants to look their best.  For men, this means wearing those cufflinks, nice watches, and rings.  For the ladies, you’re probably wearing a nice dress, have your hair up, and you’re wearing a necklace, a bracelet, earrings, and a ring or two.

So, whether you’re having a howling good time at your Halloween bash and need some costume jewelry for additional authenticity, or you need to be dressed to the nines for an upcoming Christmas party, be sure you have the right jewelry.
