It’s Your Time to Shine- Our 10 Favorite Gifts for Grads

It’s graduation party season! Hats off to the new graduates for all of their hard work and achievements. ūüéď ¬†Finding the perfect gift to celebrate these accomplishments can be a struggle- so we have assembled a list of our top ten favorite graduation gifts to take the stress out of graduation shopping.

Navigate Your Own Future

One of our favorite gifts for milestone occasions is our Compass Rose necklaces, earrings, and bracelets.  Starting at $85, these beautiful pieces feature the symbol of the compass, representing direction, guidance, and trailblazing.

Compass Rose with Sapphires $220, 14k Compass Rose Stud Earrings $75

Each Compass Rose piece comes with a card connecting the compass symbol to the occasion. ¬†One of the standard cards expresses that we are not just travelers, but navigators of our future. This is a great way to remind the graduate that they have been instilled with the tools that will help them journey towards success and the achievement of their dreams. ¬†There is also a graduation themed card that uses a quote by Emerson that tells the graduate “do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”

The Compass Rose collection includes sterling silver, two-tone, and 14k gold versions. Several of the sterling silver necklaces are available with gemstone accents to add a little color or sparkle to this beautiful symbol.

You can find our Compass Rose collection here.

Symbols of Success

Another great way to symbolize the achievements of the new graduate is our Talisman collection necklaces.  These dainty necklaces feature either a meaningful symbol or phrase and come packaged with a card that explains the meaning of that symbol.

Star of Bethlehem Sterling Talisman with Oxidized Chain ($69), Dragonfly Large Sterling Talisman ($85), Snake Antique Book Talisman ($69), Going Places and Explore Dream Discover Talisman ($65)

We particularly love the Star of Bethlehem, Dragonfly, and Snake symbols for the graduate, symbolizing an inspiring path forward and the pursuit of new dreams.  The Going Places and Explore Dream Discover word talismans are also great choices!

You can explore all of the Talisman Collection here.

Because She’s a Gem

One of our newest favorite things are our WinterLemon Wellness necklaces.  These dainty necklaces, which are handmade locally in Bethlehem, each feature a set of three natural gemstones.

Lapis Wellness Necklace, Pyrite Wellness Necklace, Tiger’s Eye Wellness Necklace, Aventurine Wellness Necklace (all $49)

Each necklace is packaged on a card that talks about the properties of the gemstone.

We love the “She Believed She Could, So She Did” Lapis Necklace, “Make It Happen” Pyrite Necklace, and “Carpe Diem” Apatite necklace for the new graduate!

Thanks for the Memories

A new Pandora bracelet is always a great gift for a big occasion.  With their ever-expanding repertoire of both meaningful and beautiful charms, it is easy to start a stunning bracelet that captures the graduation moment.  Starting a new Pandora bracelet gives your graduate a piece of jewelry that she can use to memorialize the next big steps in her life- whether it be finding her dream career, continuing her education, or creating her own home and family.

Essence Open Bangle ($65) with Dedication ($55), Strength ($45), and Strength ($60) charms. Pandora Moments Bangle ($65) with Dreamcatcher ($50), Light Blue Petite Facets ($50 each), Pave Lights ($70 each), and Ribbed Clips ($30 each)

We love the new Dreamcatcher charm, inscribed on the top with “Follow Your Dreams” as the centerpiece of a new bracelet. ¬†For the girl who prefers more of a fashion look to the traditional charm bracelet, the Essence collection is the perfect solution. ¬†The Essence Collection features a daintier bracelet with smaller charms that are more uniform in size and shape. Each charm is associated with a different attribute, such as wisdom or dedication, which is engraved on the side of the charm.

Reach for the Stars

Next on our top 10 picks for the recent graduate is our celestial-themed jewelry from WinterLemon.  These diamond accented pieces are a wonderful way to tell your graduate to keep reaching for the stars.

Polaris Star Necklace ($175), Rose Gold Vermeil Star of Bethlehem Necklace ($99), Soleil Sunburst Necklace ($175)

Handmade locally in Bethlehem, these pieces stand out from tired old styles of mass-produced jewelry.  We love the use of oxidized sterling silver and rose gold to add a different style to a common symbol.

Andromeda Star & Moon Necklace ($320), Diamond Starburst Compass Necklace ($115), Black Spinel Moravian Star Silhouette Necklace ($115), Lyra Star Necklace ($205)

Many of our WinterLemon celestial necklaces feature starbursts that remind us of the Moravian Star- a perfect way for the graduate to honor her time in Bethlehem.

You can see more of our WinterLemon collection here.

Turn the Tassel

One of the biggest symbols of graduation is the graduate turning the tassel at the end of the ceremony.  We think a great way to honor that moment is with tassel themed jewelry!

Cometa Tassel Necklace ($275), Pink Sapphire Long Tassel Necklace ($149)

Many of our brands include tassel jewelry within their offerings- from fashion jewelry such as Sorrelli and Brighton to sterling silver offerings from Pandora, WinterLemon, and Officina Bernardi.

Watch Over Her

Graduation is an exciting and life changing event.  Much of the time, it means that the graduate is going to be going off into the world and leaving home.  We love the idea of an Angel Whisperer necklace as a gift that reminds them that they will always be watched over with love.

Each Thortiuda necklace opens to reveal a colored chime. ¬†This chime is meant to “call your angel” to watch over you. ¬†This representation is very symbolic for the graduate, who may be spreading her wings and living on their own for the first time. Each color is representative of a different value and has a slightly different sound. ¬†Grey symbolizes wisdom and decisions, great for the new graduate!

The Thortiuda pendant comes in sterling silver, dark ruthenium plated, rose gold plated, and yellow gold plated styles.  In addition to being meaningful it is very stylish- it is one of the jewelry items in our store that our customers come back to tell us they get the most compliments on!

You can explore our Thortiuda collection here.

Make Her Shine

The classic gift for the graduate is an heirloom piece of jewelry that they can cherish their whole life as a symbol of their great accomplishment.  For a piece that will last a lifetime and never go out of style, there is no match for fine jewelry.  Gold jewelry, either yellow, white, or rose, is much more durable than silver fashion jewelry and can stand everyday wear and years of love.  Fine jewelry also holds its value and will be something that your graduate can someday gift to her children.

Yellow Gold and Diamond Clover Necklace ($350), White Gold and Diamond Starburst Necklace ($539), Delicate Rose Gold Necklace with Single Diamond ($380), Diamond Stud Earrings ($450), Rose Gold Pave Diamond Stud Earrings ($425)

We love simple gold and diamond necklaces or studs as a graduation gift.  While stylish, they are not overly trendy and will never go out of style.

You can explore more of our fine jewelry here.

Remind Her of Home

For the graduate leaving home to go to college or a new job, a reminder of where she is anchored is a unique graduation gift. ¬†Our Lat & Lo latitude and longitude bar necklaces and cuff bracelets have the location of Bethlehem on the front and are engraved “Bethlehem” with the Star of Bethlehem symbol on the back.

Available in both sterling silver ($64) and gold filled ($69), they are a visible reminder of the graduates roots.

For the graduate who went to school at Moravian or Lehigh, it is a great way to celebrate the special place where she got her education!

Celebrate Her Alma Mater

Our last graduation gift pick is for the local college graduate.  Upstairs in Haven, we have a lot of local art celebrating the historic landmarks and locations in the Lehigh Valley.  In addition to our maps and photo prints, we have several antique postcard reproductions featuring our local colleges!

Pardee Hall Framed

Lafayette College 8×10″ Print ($12 unframed)

 

Comenius Hall

Moravian College Comenius Hall 8×10″ Print ($12 unframed)

 

Lehigh University Bird’s Eye View 8×10″ Print ($12 unframed)

You can explore more of our local art here.

Make it Meaningful

Does mom love jewelry that is both unique and meaningful? Our new Talisman Collection pieces might be just the thing for her!  A talisman is a jewelry object that is believed to bring good luck, protect against harm, and is charged with the meaning of a chosen symbol or word.

Fierce Talisman Necklace ($65), Devoted Talisman Necklace with Garnet ($69), Crown Talisman Necklace with Moonstone ($69)

Our talisman necklaces are delicate pieces made from sterling silver that have a word, phrase, or symbol.  Some of our talismans are made from antique book pages, making them one-of-a-kind- just like mom!

Each of our symbol talisman necklaces comes with a meaning card explaining the significance behind the symbol.  Want to personalize it even more? Add some small charms from our Waxing Poetic collection, such as birthstones or initials of family members!

Charm Her

Are fine details and customizability things that mom values?  Pandora Jewelry is right up her alley!  Pandora charms and jewelry are lovingly crafted from sterling silver and Pandora Rose with hand-set stones, making a high quality piece with beautiful details.  With a wide selection of varied styles and themes to choose from, it is easy to make a custom bracelet that can represent what mom means to her family or appeal to her individual sense of style.

Each year Pandora releases a new collection geared towards Mother’s Day. ¬†We love this year’s new additions! ¬†The Bonds of Love jewelry pieces, featuring a stylized bow that represents that strong bond between a mother and her family, are classic and elegant. ¬†The charm selections are also very sweet- we particularly love the mother and baby bird dangle charm.

This year’s charms have some intricate details that really make them feel special. ¬†One example is the Perfect Home charm, which opens in to reveal the saying “Home is where MOM is.”

 

Is mom just starting out on a bracelet or is her bracelet almost full?  Check out the new Pandora open bangle!  This is our favorite Pandora piece- it is easy to put on, includes two silver stoppers to keep your charms in place, and is very comfortable and stylish!

You can wear the bangle with your favorite charms, a simple statement charm, or turn it around and wear it by itself as a cuff with no charms at all!

 

Support Our Local Family

Is mom one-of-a-kind? One of the best ways to find a unique gift to suit her tastes is to shop locally sourced treasures handmade by some of our smaller local artisans.

If mom has a special connection to Bethlehem, we have a variety of Star of Bethlehem jewelry made especially for us that would be a great way to celebrate her own roots or where she has decided to grow her family. ¬†We love the Star of Bethlehem symbol for moms who work in the St. Luke’s network as well!

Another local favorite is one of our exclusive designers, WinterLemon Jewelry, which is handmade in Bethlehem. ¬†These pieces are handmade from natural gemstones and many of them are one-of-a-kind! ¬†We particularly love WinterLemon’s rose gold pieces with labradorite and moonstone for spring.

 

WinterLemon Wellness Collection Gemstone Bracelets (starting at $16)

If mom never leaves home without her stack of bracelets, WinterLemon’s new Wellness Collection is a great choice. ¬†These stretch bracelets are made from natural gemstones and come with a card explaining the properties of the stone used. ¬†Starting at $16, it is easy to put together a stack of complementary colors and textures to make mom smile!

Go for the Gold

Gold is back in a big way! ¬†For the mom who is on-trend, gold jewelry is a must have. Golden tones are especially great for the sunshine loving mom who lives for those perfect summer days. ¬†Our golden pick for Mother’s Day is Julie Vos jewelry. ¬†Constructed of 24k gold over brass and studded with semi-precious stones, pearls, and glass, these nature and architecture inspired pieces combine classic styles with current colors and textures.

Bee Necklace ($168), Loire Pearl Station Necklace ($225), Loire Aqua Pendant Necklace ($185), Loire Aqua Station Necklace ($225), Valencia Reversible Coin Necklace ($265)

Some of the most show-stopping Julie Vos pieces are her statement necklaces.  Many of her longer layering necklaces have a special loop to allow them to easily be worn doubled, giving them an extra versatility.  The iridescent aqua pieces are our favorites- they remind us of a bright summer sky!

Milano 6-stone Bangle ($85-$125)

For the mom that prefers bracelets, Julie Vos’ stacking bangles are also a real treat! ¬†We love creating stacks with her Milano 6-stone bangle in different colors. ¬†The pearl and aqua blue stones make a beautiful combination!

Clara Chandelier Earrings ($165)

Another one of our favorite pieces from this season’s collection is the Clara Chandelier earrings in iridescent blue chalcedony. ¬†The color in these earrings is so vibrant and unique!

 

Do you think mom would love Julie Vos as much as we do?  You can see more of the collection here.

Memory Keeper

Many say that mom is the heart of the family- she nurtures us through the important milestones of our lives and can make simple moments into lifelong memories.  We love the idea of a charm locket honor her role as memory maker and keeper.

Smooth Heart Locket ($125) with Initial ($10), Birthstone ($20) and Family ($10) petite charms.

Pandora’s Memory Locket and petite charms make it easy to create the perfect vignette for mom. ¬†The lockets themselves are available in several different shapes and sizes and use high-quality sapphire crystal to ensure a locket that will stand the test of time without becoming scratched or cloudy. ¬†With several family-related charms, birthstones, and the new initials collection, you can create a collection with a piece that represents everyone in your family.

Heart Key Locket ($140), Sparkling Medium Locket ($140), Petite Charms starting at $10

One of our favorite features of the sparkling lockets is that they are reversible!  Wear them sparkly side up when you are feeling like you need a little shine or wear them with the smooth silver side up when you want a more casual look.

Because She’s Your Rock

Mom is a lot like a diamond- she brings light and sparkle into our life but is also one of the strongest things in our world.  Bring a little radiance into her life with a piece of fine jewelry to show her how much you appreciate everything she represents.  Unlike costume and silver jewelry, which will not stand everyday wear over the years, a piece of gold jewelry is something that she can cherish throughout her lifetime.

When looking at fine jewelry, we love a simple silhouette to ensure that it is something that mom can wear with as much style 10 years from now as she will today.  We love this diamond solitaire necklace because it is both elegant and classic in style.

 

For something more unique, this Paraiba Tourmaline & Diamond necklace is one of our absolute favorites- this rare stone has such a unique color!  We also love this floating Marquise Diamond necklace for a very delicate look that still packs on the sparkle.

POP Diamond Bracelet ($250)

For the more active mom, the POP Diamond bracelet would make a wonderful gift.  A 0.10ct diamond is set in sterling silver on a nylon cord, making this a great choice for the mom on the go.

Interested in looking at more of our fine jewelry selections?  You can browse some more of our selection here.

Home is Where Mom Is

We love our Compass Rose collection for almost any occasion, but it is particularly fitting for Mother’s Day. ¬†The symbol of the compass embodies the ideas of guidance and coming home. ¬†The Compass Rose tells mom that, no matter how far we may travel, our heart will always know the way back home to her.

In addition to the standard Compass Rose card, we have some wonderful mom-related cards that you can choose from.

The oxidized and colored enamel Compass Rose pendants also include the engraving on the back that “Life brings us to unexpected places. Love brings us home.”

Do you think that the Compass Rose might be the perfect gift for mom?  You can see more styles here.

Your Guardian Angel

Is mom the guardian angel of your family? ¬†Show your appreciation with a beautiful Thortiuda necklace! ¬†Thortiuda, Thai for angel, is also called the Angel Whisperer. ¬†Each pendant opens to reveal a colored chime whose soft tone brings peace in a ¬†stressful world and is meant to call your angel to watch over you. ¬†These necklaces are designed after traditional bolo necklaces worn in different cultures during pregnancy. ¬†The chime, worn over the belly, soothes the baby and brings an angel’s protection.

Large Silver Thortiuda Pendant with CZ Accents ($209), Colored Chimes ($18 each), Crystal Encrusted Chimes ($59)

One of our favorite parts of Thortiuda is the interchangeable chimes.  Each color has its own meaning and its own sound.  Choose a color that best reflects what mom means to you!

Thortiuda pendants come in rhodium plated sterling silver, rose gold plated sterling silver, and yellow gold plated sterling silver in 3 sizes. The largest sizes is also available with CZ accents for some extra bling!

Interested in seeing more Thortiuda styles and chimes?  You can find our collection here.

Feather Her Nest

Does mom prefer to adorn her house rather than herself?  Upstairs in Haven we have a lot of unique finds to make her house feel like a home!

Many of our handmade canvas signs feature a quote celebrating love or family.  Some, like You are My Sunshine, are a great way to celebrate a special phrase shared between you and mom during your childhood.

Flower Ballerina 8×10″ Art Prints ($12 each unframed)

Are you celebrating a new mom or mom-to-be?  Help her decorate her nursery with some of our whimsical art prints, such as these Flower Ballerinas.

West Bethlehem Bird’s Eye Map ($15 unframed)

If mom has strong roots in our local area, another fun gift idea is one of our local maps.  We have a wide selection of areas throughout the Lehigh Valley- search out a map that shows where your family has put down roots and where she herself grew up to make her a special set!

Want to see more items from our wall art and map selection? Browse some of our print and canvas selection here.

Let Her Choose

Does mom like the freedom of being able to choose her own gift?  A Versant gift card might be your best option! With a gift certificate, you give her the freedom to take the time out to treat herself.  This is also a great gift for those last minute shoppers!  You can always purchase a Versant gift card in store, but now you can also purchase a printable Versant digital gift certificate through our online store!  Digital gift certificates can be used both online and at our retail location.

Pandora Bracelets- Charm Her

Pandora is a classic choice for a memorable and meaningful gift.  Not only is it alluring, the thought that goes into choosing a charm makes it a personal experience.  We love some of the new bracelet styles that have been introduced in the past year.  Not only are they a great way to start a Pandora bracelet for someone who is new to the charm world, they are a wonderful way to give life to an old collection of charms.  The new open bangle has become one of our best-selling bracelets, and for good reason.  Not only is it easy to take on and off, but it comes with spacers to keep your charms in place and fits more naturally to your wrist than a round bracelet.  The new heart lock bracelet is also a stunning addition to the collection.

The great thing about the curated collections that are released for Valentine’s Day is that they are designed around a common theme. ¬†This makes it easy to add some beautiful jewelry pieces that coordinate with the charms to make a well-rounded gift! ¬†We love the “Love Locks” pieces from this years collection. ¬†The “You & Me” ring is also a sweet piece for a young girl.

Our Thortiuda pendants are a staff favorite- they are one of the pieces of jewelry we get the most compliments on!  Classic in style but unique enough to stand out in a crowd, these necklaces open to allow the chime inside to be interchanged for different colors.  Named for the Thai word for angel, the necklace is designed from traditional necklaces meant to call your guardian angel.  Each colored chime has a different meaning- choose one that best captures your sentiment for the season!

Pandora Rose- For the Romantic

The vintage color of rose gold is popular with the bohemian and romantic personalities alike. ¬†Pandora Rose, a proprietary metal blend that combines sterling silver and copper, gives the beautiful hue of rose gold without the price of a solid rose gold piece. ¬†This year’s Valentine’s Day collection has some fun new additions in the Pandora Rose. We love the typography-inspired “I Love You” dangle charm. ¬†Combining both silver and the Pandora Rose, it is a great way to start on a two-tone bracelet!

Diamonds Are Always a Good Idea

Elizabeth Taylor once said “Big girls need big diamonds”- and for good reason! ¬†A girl may have dreams of silver and CZs, but give a woman a diamond! One of the strongest materials on earth, diamond jewelry is an investment piece made to last. ¬†Unlike silver fashion jewelry which is not meant for everyday use and will not stand the test of time, giving a gift of gold and precious gemstones means giving a gift that can be worn for decades with the same sparkle.

Lock Your Promise- Pandora 2018 Valentine’s Day Collection Review

Get ready to get romantic- the Pandora Valentine’s Day mini-collection is here! ¬†This year’s new additions include some classic styles mixed in with some colorful new additions with a whimsical style. ¬†The new collection includes pieces in every category, including a new bracelet concept. ¬†Check out our review below!

Charms

pandora valentine's

The centerpiece of Pandora’s Valentine’s Day collection is a selection of new charms in wide-ranging styles. ¬†The main focuses of this year’s campaign include a beautiful lock and key motif, the encouragement to “kiss more” with kiss themed pieces, and saturated color in bright fuchsia and salmon-pink.

 

The first group of charms are bursting with color.  Many of the enamel charms have an ombre effect with graduating color from the edges to the sides.  We particularly love the new Shape of Love charm, which features a faceted rose crystal.  Included in this grouping is the new innovative spacer shaped like a heart, a new standard clip, and a new silicone grip clip.

pandora valentine's

Explosion of Love ($80), Burst of Love ($50), Two Hearts Spacer ($30), Shape of Love ($55), Burst of Love Clip ($40), Explosion of Love Clip ($40)

The next grouping is a whimsical interpretation of the idea that we should “Kiss More.” ¬†We love the details in the emoji style Kiss charm- it has glitter cerise enamel on the lips and hearts along the edge. ¬†The lips charm is a limited selection at the moment.

pandora valentine's

Kiss ($45), Lips ($75), Love & Kisses ($35), Kisses all Around ($55)

The last grouping appeals to the more classic style, with touches of gold accenting bright silver. ¬†Light pink cubic zirconia give a touch of romantic color. ¬†The lock and key symbols and the “You & Me” sentiment are used frequently throughout the Valentine’s collection- we really like the new key dangle charm with gold lock. There is also a new heart lock-shaped clip that makes a great statement as a bangle centerpiece.

pandora valentine's

Two Hearts ($75), Two Hearts w/Clear CZ ($55), Talk About Love ($35), Lock Your Promise ($65), I Love You ($50), Tree of Love ($50), Key to My Heart ($75)

There are also a few new additions in rose.  The Pandora Rose pieces in this collection are accented with a synthetic ruby.  We like the mixture of the Pandora Rose and silver letters in the Rose interpretation of the I Love You charm- it is a great way to tie together a mixed metal charm collection.

pandora valentine's

Two Hearts Rose Spacer ($40), I Love You Rose ($65)

There is one addition to the Essence collection- a beautiful fuchsia faceted crystal charm that mirrors the Shape of Love charm in the Moments collection.  The meaning behind this charm is Love- the perfect sentiment for the season.

Love Essence Charm ($50)

Bracelets

pandora valentine's

One of the most exciting parts of the new Pandora Valentine’s Day collection is the addition of a new bracelet concept. ¬†The Lock Your Promise bracelet features a new removable lock closure. ¬†We are looking forward to seeing what other similar clasps are going to become available for this concept!

pandora valentine's

Explosion of Love Bracelet ($90), Lock Your Promise Bracelet ($75)

The Explosion of Love bracelet carries forward the bolo-style bracelet design.  We like this design because it allows the wearer to adjust the size to what is comfortable to them.  This sweet design has small pink CZ hearts studding the smooth silver cuff.

Necklaces

pandora valentine's

One of our favorite new pieces in this collection is the key-shaped Memory Locket!  Fitting 2-3 petite charms, this locket has beautiful details and a classic shape similar to the Tiffany keys collection.

There is also a lock necklace with a similar concept to the Lock Your Promise bracelet. ¬†We love the details on the Tree of Love necklace, where two colorful enamel hearts are nestled within the tree’s branches.

pandora valentine's

Lock Your Promise Necklace ($100), I Love You Necklace ($75), Tree of Love Necklace ($90), Floating Locket Heart Key ($140)

To accompany the new key locket, there are four new Petite charms.  We love the lock and key together as a pair!

Earrings

Pandora continues to be very innovative in their earring designs.  We love seeing all of the new concepts that are being released and how we can customize them using the pieces we have at home! The new Two Hearts Hoops use a stud earring at the front of the ear that fits into the hoop in the back.  Use some of your other Pandora studs to change the look of the earring!

pandora valentine's

Pure Love Earrings ($65), Love Locks ($45), Two Hearts Earrings ($90)

We also adore the sweet Love Locks studs.  With the short dangle of the heart lock, they offer a little more than the traditional small stud.

Rings

pandora valentine's

On to one of our favorite categories- rings! ¬†There are only a few additions to the rings in this year’s collection, but they are beautiful. ¬†The open-style Two Hearts rings are great for stacking without feeling too heavy.

pandora valentine's

Two Hearts Rose ($60), Two Hearts ($45), You & Me ($45), Love Lock ($45)

The You & Me ring features a heart-shaped dome cut stone that has a beautiful depth. ¬†The side of the ring is engraved “You & Me”, adding another meaningful layer.

For the Classic Beauty

The classic beauty gravitates towards clean lines, tried-and-true styles, and simple silhouettes with a little bit of sparkle.  Trending towards smooth textures in silver or white gold, the classic girl likes pieces that will look good today and twenty years from now.

One of our favorite choices for the girl with a classic style is Ti Sento Milano jewelry. Made from solid sterling silver with a rhodium plated to maintain shine and prevent tarnishing, this beautiful jewelry line embodies elegance.  Pavé stones, soft colors, and classic textures add something extra to make each piece really stand out.

 

Mother of Pearl & Sterling Bangle- $299

Milano Green Pendant, $179

 

We particularly love these beautiful pendant necklaces.  Providing a pop of color or sparkle on a small chain, they are a great quality gift at an affordable price.

ti sento gift guide

Ti Sento Milano Sterling Necklaces- $139-$179

For the classic girl who prefers a handbag to a piece of jewelry, we love Katie Loxton’s vegan leather bags. ¬†These handbags and clutches are made in modern colors with a classic, minimalist silhouette.

Florrie Day Bag, $69.99

We love the witty pieces in Katie Loxton’s Perfect Pouch collection. ¬†Available in a wide range of beautiful colors, each pouch has a fun phrase to reflect an outgoing personality. ¬†The clutches are great for storing your glam essentials or taking out as a purse for a night on the town!

Perfect Pouch, $24

Another great gift for the classic girl is Gabriel & Company’s fashion jewelry. ¬†Made by the purveyors of fine and bridal jewelry, the fashion line is made from sterling silver and gemstones. ¬†Gabriel updates classic shapes and styles with unique textures and stones to make pieces that really stand out in a crowd.

Black Mother of Pearl & White Sapphire Post Earrings

Unlike many fashion jewelry lines that use cubic zirconia for added sparkle, Gabriel & Co uses natural stones, such as white topaz or diamonds.

Sterling Silver Necklaces- $49, $175, $249 (L-R)

For the Style Trendsetter

Shopping for someone that likes to be on ahead of the pack when it comes to new styles? Check out selections in mixed metals or gold (yes it is back!) in innovative shapes and designs.

Freida Rothman jewelry is perfect for someone who has a more metropolitan style- it has a splash of sparkle set against dark oxidized silver with gold accents.

Freida Rothmans Necklaces- $495, $195, $250 (L-R)

 

Statement bangles and cuffs are some of our favorite pieces made by Freida Rothman.  Available in two tone or silver, they are a gorgeous piece for someone looking for a splurge-worthy gift.

Freida Rothman Bangles- $250, $350, $365 (Top-Bottom), Cocktail Ring $195, Stack of 5 Rings $275

For the girl who prefers silver, Freida Rothman’s Industrial Finish collection gives a metropolitan edge using silver tones. ¬†This collection mixes sparkling stones, matte silver, and oxidized silver for a dramatic finish.

Industrial Finish Large Teardrop Necklace, $550

Julie Vos jewelry is another great choice for the trendsetter who is ready to delve into the wonderful world of gold jewelry.  Constructed from 24K gold over brass, these amazing (and affordable!) styles are a centerpiece of the fashion blogger world.  We love her beautiful stacking bangles.

Julie Vos Stacking Bangles, starting at $40

One of our favorite designs is the Milano 6-Stone bangle.  They look amazing stacked together and come in a wide variety of natural stones, providing a lot of color options.  We also love the new Caspian Cuff for a dramatic statement piece.

Milano 6-stone Bangles, starting at $85, Elephant Pearl Bangle $145, Caspian Cuff $245

We also love Julie Vos’¬†long, layering necklaces. ¬†The new Caspian necklace in gold with oxidized silver accents is one of our favorites from the fall collection. ¬†The Coin Pendant necklace, which can be worn long or doubled into a shorter layered necklace, has been a favorite on the fashion blogs.

Caspian Necklace with Labradorite or Mother of Pearl, $165

Julie Vos Coin Pendant Necklace, $165

Does your style trendsetter prefer a one-of-a-kind piece that no-one else is likely to have?  Our Bora jewelry is a great choice for her!  Handmade by a New York City based Turkish designer, Bora pieces have a Byzantine influence with a modern style.  We love the natural textures incorporated into each piece.

Bora Necklace

Bora Oxidized Silver Freshwater Pearl Necklace, $290

Bora Statement Ring, $290, Smaller Pearl Ring, $245

For the Sentimentalist

Searching for a gift for someone who prefers something symbolic of the important moments in their life over the standard glitz and glamor? Look to one of the many customizable jewelry lines that allow you to tailor your gift to both suit her tastes and represent the events and people that have touched her life.   There has been a big movement in recent times to make jewelry more personal with great benefits for gift givers.  It is hard to go wrong when you know that the present you have wrapped under the tree represents something special to her!

One of our favorite charm lines is Waxing Poetic.  Waxing Poetic was originally inspired by the vintage look and poetic history of wax seals and is made from brass and sterling silver for a beautiful mixed metal look.  Their mission statement is to celebrate the potential for transformation in all of us. The  jewelry they create pays homage to the journey of our lives: where we come from, what our stories are, and how they have influenced both the world and us.

From symbols such as the tree of life, moon, and anchor to more direct representations of family members, such as initials or birthstones, each charm is meant to have its own story.

Waxing Poetic Charms on Charm Catcher- Initials $44, Bundled by Love Nest $77, Sweet Missive $33, Charm Holder, Sterling Story Catcher $152

The Transformative Dragonfly pendant is a gorgeous statement piece.  This large charm is set with labradorite for a natural iridescence.

Waxing Poetic Charms- Reversible “Ever Tied” Charm $55, Kristal Pendant with Brass $59

Another great option for someone who appreciates a gift that has a deeper meaning is Alex and Ani jewelry. ¬†Alex and Ani creates meaningful, eco-conscious jewelry and accessories that adorn the body, enlighten the mind, and empower the spirit. Alex and Ani’s collections reflect a design aesthetic that celebrates¬†each wearer’s unique essence¬†and their¬†artistry lies in drawing out the beauty that resides within. ¬†

Alex and Ani Bangles, starting at $28

Each Alex and Ani bangle or charm comes with a meaning card describing the meaning behind the symbol and providing three key empowering words that the symbol represents.   From symbols directly representing aspects of a person, such as birthstones and initials, to more figurative symbols such as hope, strength, and healing, you are sure to find a personal and meaningful gift within the multitude of charms available. Their recent addition, adjustable cuffs, are a great addition for the girl who has a lot of the bangle style design.

Alex and Ani Cuff Bracelets, $42

This year, Alex and Ani has made gift-giving even easier with their curated sets.  These sets incorporate several bangle and beaded styles meant to complement each other, making a complete stack. We particularly love the rose gold joy set!

Limited Edition Gift Sets, starting at $58

Most of the collection is made from recycled metals, but the Providence collection provides an elegant redesign of the more popular symbols in sterling and gold plated sterling.  It is a great way to gift Alex and Ani to someone who

Alex and Ani Providence Sterling Pull Chain Bracelets- $68

Making a gift meaningful and personal doesn’t always mean that it has to be a traditional charm or symbol. ¬†The Pandora Essence collection has all of the meaning of other charm lines but has a clean and elegant profile¬†that suits those with a more simple or classic style. ¬† The beads themselves can be worn on the sterling Pandora Essence bracelet, bangle, or necklace. ¬†The Essence charms are all similar in size and design, with different colors or patterns symbolizing the virtue that they represent; because of this design they look like an elegant bracelet or necklace but still have a deeper meaning.

Pandora Essence Necklace with Charms- Necklace $80, Loyalty $40, Appreciation $65, Balance $60 (L-R)

Each bead in the Pandora Essence line is associated with a different trait or emotion, such as love, friendship, faith, or confidence.

Another idea for the girl who likes beautiful things with beautiful meanings behind them is our new line, Compass Rose. The compass rose, also called the windrose, is a navigational figure that displays the cardinal directions and their intermediate points. The inside of the rose is filled in with an ornate star that is symbolic of the North Star. This was the principle navigational tool used for centuries as guidance.

compass rose

Compass Rose Large Pendant Necklace, $159

The motto of Compass Rose is that “we are not just travelers, but navigators of our futures.” In addition to this standard card, we have many custom cards to celebrate the different ways people guide us and help us on our journey through life.

Compass Rose with Blue Topaz on Love Themed Card, $99

Our new additions to the Compass Rose line are more ornate, with oxidized details or beautiful colored enamel. ¬†We love the anchor incorporating the compass rose design! These pieces are engraved on the back “Life brings us to unexpected places. Love brings us home.”

Compass Rose Pendants, starting at $42, chain separate

For the bracelet lover, Compass Rose is available as a sterling bangle or a cord bracelet as well.  We love the contrast of the silver compass with the black cord.

Compass Rose Bracelets, starting at $82

For the Detail Oriented

Shopping for a girl who cares about the little things that make an outfit perfect? We have some great options with interchangeable pieces that help coordinate one piece of jewelry for many occasions!

Brighton’s Christo Cuffs are a wonderful choice for the girl who has a strong bracelet game. ¬†These cuffs have an open metal design into which you can insert reversible leather pieces in fun colors. Wear them without an insert for a more open feel and change your colors to match your outfit (or your mood!)

Christo Cuff- Cuff $98, Inserts starting at $20

The fall collection included some beautiful new beaded inserts to use in the open cuff.  We love the colors and details!

For the girl who prefers a necklace to a bracelet, our Thortiuda pendants are a very popular choice.  These distinctive cage-shaped pendants open to allow the orb inside to be changed.  Changing a grey colored orb for a brightly colored one completely changes the look of the necklace.

Thortiuda Pendants- starting at $89, Extra Chimes starting at $14

For a little extra sparkle, some of the cages are spangled with glittering CZs.

Not enough sparkle for you? Check out these amazing crystal encrusted orbs!

For the girl who prefers handbags to jewelry, we love the idea of adding fun bag charms to give a classic bag a touch of personality. ¬†We love all of the tassel charms from Spartina 449’s fall collection!

Beaded Leather Tassel Bag Charm, $42

This bee tassel/keychain in a seaglass blue is another one of our favorites.

Bee Tassel, $24

For the Local Lover

Are you shopping for someone who is filled with hometown pride and adorns themselves (and their home!) with symbols of their local roots? The best part about shopping at a locally-owned small business is the exclusive finds that celebrate our beautiful city!

One of our favorite new jewelry concepts is the coordinates cuff and necklace.  These sterling and gold plated pieces from Lat & Lo celebrate where you are anchored.  They have crafted for us an exclusive version of the coordinate cuff and bar necklace with the coordinates of Bethlehem on the outside and our city name with the Star of Bethlehem on the inside.  These pieces are a great gift both for those who celebrate the city where they live and for those who have had beautiful memories here and no longer live in the area.

Lat & Lo Bethlehem Bar Necklace and Cuff- Cuff $91 Silver, $97 Gold, Bar $62 Silver, $66 Gold

Another great way to celebrate the love for local is by supporting a local artist.  Our WinterLemon jewelry is not only beautiful, but it is handmade in Bethlehem, PA!  Ranging from stocking stuffers like beaded bracelets made from natural gemstones (starting at $15) to luxe items like diamond necklaces, there is something for everyone AND your purchase goes invests in the community that you love.

Our favorites from WinterLemon’s holiday additions are these beautiful oxidized silver and rose gold celestial themed diamond necklaces.

WinterLemon Diamond Necklaces, starting at $80

Each of the natural stones used in WinterLemon’s bracelets has a meaning or promotes certain attributes. ¬†With a wide color palette, it is fun to try to find a meaningful stone that matches your style.

Stretch Bracelets, starting at $15, Mother of Pearl Oxidized Silver Necklace, $89

We also love WinterLemon’s suede choker necklaces with dainty charms. ¬†Tying at the back of the neck, tie them as a choker or wear them longer for a more traditional look.

WinterLemon Suede Chokers with Diamond Pendants, starting at $89

For the Bethlehem native, our exclusive Star Collection jewelry is a great choice.  Designed around the Star of Bethlehem motif, these necklaces range from dainty sterling silver pieces for $55 to solid 14k gold pieces for $410.

Star Collection, Closed Sterling Star with Diamond $175, 14k Gold Open Star $410

We love the sterling silver open star necklace. ¬†It is also a great choice for any health professionals who work within the St. Luke’s network!

Sterling Open Star Necklace, $70

For those looking for something to adorn their home, there are a lot of local finds upstairs in Haven.  Our black and white photo prints and vintage greeting card reproductions are another great way to gift the local lover.

Rose gold continues to grow in popularity, especially with those who are a romantic at heart. The warm tones of rose gold pair well with bright sterling silver, and are a great complement for the jewelry box of a girl who likes silver and white gold.

We have a variety of rose-gold plated sterling silver jewelry that gives a rosy tone without the price of solid rose gold.

In addition to necklaces and earrings, we have some beautiful rose-gold plated bracelets that are adjustable to your wrist size.  Stack them with some of our Katie Loxton beaded stretch bracelets for a sparkling statement in silver and rose!

Pandora’s Rose collection has become very popular in the last year as well. ¬†Their rings are a standout choice- get a statement piece or create your own curated stack!

Pandora Rose rings, starting at $65

We also love all of the new Pandora Rose charms added to the Essence collection.  Pair the sparkling rose pieces with some bold black and white for an outstanding statement piece.

Looking for a luxe-level gift? Our gorgeous solid rose gold and diamond pieces are heirloom-worthy pieces that will stand the wear of time.  Unlike plated silver pieces, where the rose gold finish can eventually wear off, real rose gold pieces have the strength and longevity of gold.  We love these dainty diamond necklaces, especially the anchor symbol.

More of an earring girl?  These crescent moon statement earrings and cone-shaped dainty earrings are some of our favorites pieces in the diamond case!

For the Entertainer

The Entertainer loves the hustle and bustle of a busy house, and the centerpiece of her home is the¬†kitchen where friends and family gather for good times and great¬†company. ¬†The best gifts for the Entertainer are ones that highlight¬†these occasions and celebrate her love for being everyone’s favorite host.

When opening our¬†new upstairs lifestyle and home boutique, Haven, we sought out high quality serving pieces, barware, and other home items that follow the modern¬†movement¬†in home¬†decor by using natural materials in a neutral palette. ¬†These touches of marble, slate, natural wood, and copper make the perfect palette for displaying the Entertainer’s gourmet treats.

Haven Serving Pieces- Coasters $50, Marble Platter $30, Slate Cheese Board $29

Another gift idea for the Entertainer is a collection of scented candles.  A good quality candle not only adds ambience to any party, but it makes her home smell fresh and inviting.  At Haven, our Greenmarket Purveying Company candles are beautifully presented, all-natural, and locally made in Bucks County.

Greenmarket Purveying Co. Candles- 3 oz. votive $9, 8 oz. candle $16

We also love our Bonny and Blithe candles, goat’s milk soap, and lotions. ¬†Handmade in Portland, Oregon, they are beautifully presented and make a great addition to a kitchen or guest bathroom.

Love going out to eat?  Check out our fun wine caddies made from upcycled military tarps and tents to tote your wine bottles to your favorite BYOB in style!

If coffee is her life, we love these Chase & Wonder mugs to add some personality to her daily caffeine fix.

For the Sparkling Star

Are you giving a gift to someone whose favorite quote is “never let anyone dull your sparkle”? You have a Sparkling Star on your hands! The Sparkling Star is drawn to anything that has that¬†lovely glimmer when the light catches it, and she is¬†like a kid in a candy shop when she¬†goes into a¬†jewelry store.

Needless to say, we are stocked full of glistening jewels for the Sparkling Star in your life.  In addition to our fine jewelry, we have a lot of affordable options available that still pack on the glitz.  One of our favorite collections of jewelry is Officina Bernardi.  This Italian sterling silver line is manufactured with a patented cut to make the silver catch the light the way a faceted gem would. They offer a wide range of necklaces, earrings, and bracelets in silver, gold plated, rose gold plated, and black rhodium plated to suit a variety of tastes and purposes.

If you are looking for a splurge-worthy gift in the Officina Bernardi line, the Comet necklace is a great choice.  This long tassel necklace is finished in a warm rose gold with silver accents.  As versatile as it is beautiful, you can dress it down with a white T-shirt or take it for a night on the town in a little black dress.

Another great gift to keep your girl twinkling is new to Versant- Sorrelli Jewelry!  Not only are these pieces super sparkly- they are encrusted with Swarovski crystals!- they are designed locally in Kutztown and have a lifetime warranty.  We love the holiday Black Onyx collection.

Sorrelli Black Onyx Collection Bracelets, starting at $70

For the girl who loves warm tones, their Mahogany pieces set in Antique Gold finished metal are stunning as well.

Not only beautiful, but versatile, some pieces are even convertible such a multi-strand wrap bracelet that can also be worn as a bib necklace.

Sorrelli Wrap Bracelet, $140

 

There is one gift that outshines any other for the sparkling star- diamonds! Nothing says sparkle like a white diamond set in white gold.

14k Gold and Diamond Necklaces, starting at $385

For the sparkling star who likes a touch of color, we love these diamond and sapphire studs.  They are a particularly special gift for a bride-to-be- she can wear them at her upcoming wedding as her something blue!

Sapphire and Diamond White Gold Studs

Looking to really spoil her? We have some amazing diamond hoop earrings ranging from pave diamonds to these outstanding teardrop shaped hoops with large diamonds.

Diamond Hoop Earrings, $3,375

For the Gentleman

Versant is not only for the girls! We also have some fun finds for the gentlemen in your life.

Upstairs at Haven we have a great find for the guy who is into our local history. ¬†Our exclusive local map prints, available framed or unframed, were created using¬†vintage maps to create a modern graphic that celebrates local neighborhoods. ¬†Map prints are 11×14″ and¬†are available for Historic Bethlehem, West Bethlehem, South Bethlehem, Northeast Bethlehem, Bethlehem Township, Fountain Hill, Upper Saucon, Lower Saucon, Easton, South Easton, Nazareth, and Phillipsburg.

And accessorizing is not only for the girls!  Our new line from Waxing Poetic, Poet, is designed with your man in mind.  These leather and sterling bracelets and tag-style necklaces are adorned with strong symbols. We particularly love the North Star and Dove necklaces; the Anguis snake tag necklace reminds us of the Caduceus and would be a great gift for a doctor.

Men’s Sterling and Brass Poet Necklaces, starting at $75
