The first half of the 2017 Holiday collection is accented with bright sparkle and dark blues. Their use of faceted stones and enamel in place of the usual pave stones makes for a stronger color that is beautifully contrasted by the clear CZs that add some shine to each design.
We love the new orbit charm ($55) combined with the galaxy spacers. The new bright star ($75) charm makes a great centerpiece for the open bangle for the winter season.
The glacial beauty charm ($90) is another gorgeous addition; its diamond shape works well with some of the geometric charms released in this year’s autumn collection. We also love this charm on a short chain as a dainty necklace!
One of our absolute favorite charms of the new collection is the Celestial Mosaic charm ($65). Made with mother-of-pearl, the moon and stars have a beautiful iridescence. The smooth black surface is a great contrast in color and texture to the numerous pave charms available.
Pandora has updated the Galaxy charm and continued with the Nature’s Radiance charms ($70) by adding faceted blue and ruby red stones inside bright silver cages. The contrast between the silver and the dark stone underneath is really beautiful! Continuing with the night sky theme, the Snow Flurry ($60), Dazzling Snowflake ($90) and Heart of Winter dangle ($60) charms feature snow motifs against clear and dark blue backgrounds.
The Pandora Holiday collection also includes three new clip designs. The Heart of Winter ($55) and Bright Star ($55) clips are charm-style clips following this year’s main themes. The Starry Formation ($45) is a spacer-style clip that is a great neutral piece.
The Essence collection has also had a bold color update with this year’s additions. Three new charms featuring bright jewel tones have been added.
New Jewelry Additions
These beautiful jewel tones have also been used to update the Timeless Elegance ring style ($75). The other overarching motifs for Holiday jewelry include the Heart of Winter symbol ($60) and the Shooting Star ($70). Our favorite so far this year is the sparkling elegance the shooting star pieces- they would make a great addition to any holiday party outfit!
Several new necklaces have been released with the Pandora Holiday collection this year, ranging from small pendants to statement pieces. The Heart of Winter necklace is available in both a small ($80) and statement ($125) version.
The Classic Elegance pendant has been reimagined as a dainty necklace ($90), and is available in silver and Pandora Rose.
The Shooting Star necklace ($100) is also a beautiful, classic piece.
In keeping with the overall celestial theme, the new Pandora Holiday earring arrivals have a lot of clear sparkle with added accents of blue. The Shooting Star earrings come in both a stud ($65) and statement ($75) style. One of our favorites is the Shimmering Drop earrings ($85), which are reversible; one side is a sparkling stud and the other is a faceted midnight blue stone.
The Timeless Elegance earrings have been updated to include the dark blue stone as well. These would be a great gift for the bride-to-be!
This year’s Christmas additions follow the tried-and-true formula of bright holiday reds and sparkling silver. In addition to the traditional red pieces, a pretty dark blue snow globe ($55) and Snowy Wonderland scene ($55) have been added.
We love the new Holiday Wreath ($35) and Sparkling Candy Cane ($45) dangling additions- they are so bright and fun! The Christmas Polar Bear ($45) is a great whimsical addition as well. Several button style charms matching some of the new Christmas petites have also been released.
For the Memory Locket lovers, there are some fun new additions as well. The bright Christmas Wreath and Jolly Santa are sure to bring anyone into the holiday spirit! For those who prefer a more neutral palette, the Rose petite additions look stunning in the locket. We particularly love the snowflake!
An extra-special holiday addition this year is the Rockette’s Limited Edition Bright Ornament charm. Not only do you get this beautiful LE charm with bright red enamel and swirling pave crystals, but it is packaged in a keepsake ornament box! Both the ornament and the charm have the year engraved, making this a special collector’s piece.
We love all of the new holiday pieces and are excited to share them with you! Make sure to stop by and see all of these beautiful additions in person. As always, we appreciate all of our customers who decide to #shopsmall during the holidays and throughout the year to support their local small businesses.
Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and we have hand-selected some special treats to make mom’s day! Whether she is a sentimental soul or a trendsetter on-the-go, we have searched the world to find the perfect gift for every kind of mom. Check out all of our selections below in our Mother’s Day gift guide.
A few helpful hints before we start- plan to shop before the crowds arrive. The early bird really does get the worm- many of our promotions are the first week in May and the best selection is available when you get there first. If you are shopping for Pandora or Alex and Ani, take a peek or snap a pic of mom’s collection before you set out. That way you won’t have to fret over whether you have already given her that mom charm! And forget about buying wrapping paper and ribbon- gift wrapping is always complimentary at Versant! Got all that? Okay then- ready, set … shop!
If mom’s sense of style trends towards bright silvers, simple lines, and a touch of sparkle, she appreciates classic beauty. Giving a gift that will stand the test of time means going back to the classics. Clean styles in neutral colors are always a good idea. Mom will get the most wear out of a versatile piece she will be able to fancy up with a little black dress or dress down with a tee and jeans.
One of our favorite jewelry lines that creates classic styles with an updated aesthetic is Ti Sento Milano. Crafted from sterling silver, these pieces are rhodium plated to inhibit tarnishing and keep a bright, beautiful finish. Studded with sparkling, handset stones, they are great for transitioning from day into night.
Some of our favorite Ti Sento necklaces feature a round pendant with a pavé CZ or colored stone interior. We love the beautiful, soft colors of the stones. Ti Sento uses manmade crystals for their colored stones, ensuring that the color of each piece is consistent. This is a great feature for buying companion rings or earrings on future occasions!
If mom prefers bracelets and rings to necklaces, Ti Sento has some gorgeous hinged bangles. Made from heavy sterling silver, they really make a statement! We love the new spring design with entwined silver, pavé CZ, and mother of pearl strands.
Another great choice for the mom with the classic sense of style is Gabriel & Co’s fashion jewelry. Gabriel is primarily known for their high-end engagement rings, wedding bands, and fine jewelry. Their fashion line is constructed from sterling silver with precious and semi-precious stones. Using sterling allows for the same quality of design and construction at a lower price.
We love their quatrefoil necklace and earrings for mom. An iconic style with a slightly vintage feel, these pieces are feminine without being too delicate.
For the mom who likes the classics but wants something unique, Gabriel’s mother of pearl pieces are a great choice. These rings, earrings, and pendants use mother pearl with a piece of faceted quartz on top to give the piece more dimension. Although at first glance they look like a neutral grey, the iridescence of the dark mother of pearl picks up pretty pinks, greens, and other colors in the light.
Are you looking to really treat mom this Mother’s Day? (She deserves it!) Nothing is as classic or eternal as fine jewelry. While good fashion jewelry makes a beautiful statement, sterling silver does not have the strength for long-lasting wear the way that gold does. To give mom a classic piece that she will be able to wear for years and pass on to her children, gold is the way to go.
For a gift that mom can wear every day, stud earrings are an excellent choice. They have just the right amount of sparkle to be able to worn with any outfit. Studs are a great gift for new moms because they are a piece of jewelry that small hands can’t easily grab!
A dainty necklace is also a wonderful gift idea. These pieces add a touch of delicate sparkle and will never go out of style. We love the anchor necklace below. A symbol of stability and hope, the anchor holds fast and steady in both calm and stormy weather.
Let’s Get Personal
We love a gift that you can personalize to customize it to mom’s taste and represent your family and special memories that you share. Luckily, there are a lot of different types of jewelry that let you combine pieces to make mom a unique and thoughtful gift.
When talking about celebrating and creating unforgettable moments, Pandora is a great choice for someone looking for a wide range of styles. Not only do they have a vast selection of charms for their bracelets, but their jewelry is diverse, well-made, and affordable.
We love the new floating locket designs that have been introduced this season. The lockets themselves are a clean, classic design and use sapphire crystal found in high-end watches to provide a scratch-resistant surface. Sets of three petite charms can be used to personalize the lockets. We love the infinite love and the birthstone trios! The new heart lockets can be used with an insert plate in the back to add another dimension to the design.
For those looking to start a Pandora bracelet or add a new bracelet to their existing collection, the Tree of Hearts gift set is a great way to do so. This set includes a Limited Edition heart-clasp bangle with the inscription “You are so loved” and the new Tree of Hearts charm. The gift set is presented in a special light pink Pandora box. Personalize the set by adding spacers in the colors of family members’ birthstones or charms with their initials!
Pandora’s new stackable birthstone rings are another great option for giving mom a personalized gift. Make a stack with the birthstone of each family member to create a modern version of a mother’s ring.
Another great option for curating a personalized set for mom is Waxing Poetic jewelry. This line of charms, necklaces, and bracelets is inspired by vintage wax seals. Create a mother’s day collection using talismans representing family, meaningful words and phrases, and insignia with initials.
An added bonus to shopping the Waxing Poetic collection is the free charm promotion that will be going on from May 1-May 14. During this time, when you spend $100 in Waxing Poetic jewelry, you will get a Mom Birdsong charm for free. We love this charm paired with the Bundled with Love nest. Add symbols representing each family member to really personalize mom’s charms!
For the mom with a more casual style, Alex and Ani is a fun way to create a stack of bracelets to represent her family and what makes her stand out. This Mother’s Day, Alex and Ani has released several limited edition sets. These bangle and beaded styles only available for a limited time as part of each set. The I Love You Mom set of five and Mom set of three are great starter sets for a mom just beginning her Alex and Ani collection.
We particularly love the Infinite Connection set. With one bangle for mom and one bangle for daughter, it reminds us of the classic “give one, keep one” friendship sets. Add a beaded bangle in a birthstone color to personalize mom’s portion of the set!
Another way to create a personalized bracelet collection is with the updated birthstone bangles. These bangles are now available in the matte gold and silver finish and adorned with a teardrop shaped Swarovski crystal. Mix birthstones bangles, colored beaded bracelets, and initials for mom and her crew to create a varied stack.
Is mom the superhero of your family? Add one of the new Wonder Woman bangles or cuffs to her Mother’s Day stack! These new additions to the Alex and Ani world feature the iconic Wonder Woman logo and symbolize strength and the fight for love and justice.
The Trendsetter Mom
Is mom a style trendsetter who loves to be on the cutting edge of what is new and fashionable? Look for pieces that use different metals in innovative ways and go out of their way to make a statement. Bolder earrings in versatile designs, necklaces that are longer or shorter (think chokers!), and stacks of fun bangles are a great way to gift the trendsetter mom.
We love Julie Vos jewelry for a striking design in warm gold with pops of bold color. Her long layering necklaces and stackable bracelets have been very popular on the fashion blogs, and for good reason. With styles inspired by nature, architecture, and byzantine motifs, these pieces bridge the gap between classic and trendy. Julie Vos’ jewelry is constructed from 24K gold over brass, giving it a wonderful warm tone.
For the beach-loving mom that loves the summer sun, choose pieces where watery blues or bright turquoise are set against gold.
Many of Julie Vos’ long necklaces, like the bee below, include a special jump ring so that they can be doubled and worn at a shorter length.
Another great brand for the trendsetter mom is Freida Rothman. Based in New York, they combine a metropolitan style with a fun use of mixed metals and stone settings. For a brighter style, their yellow gold plated pieces set with amazonite are gorgeous. For a versatile piece, we love their pavé studs with amazonite ear jackets. Wear them as plaint studs without the jackets, or dress it up with a dangling pop of color!
For an edgier style, check out Freida Rothman’s mixed metal pieces. Using yellow gold plating and oxidized sterling silver gives a great contrast to these fashionable pieces. Pair them with some labradorite jewelry to complement the color combination.
Our store exclusive line, WinterLemon, also has some beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces that are well-suited for the fashionable mom. Handmade locally, they use a mix of cutting edge shapes and metals with semi-precious gemstones. As with Freida Rothman’s jewelry, the mix of yellow gold and oxidized silver takes a classic design and gives it a more contemporary edge.
For those that would like a statement piece without a heavy look, we love WinterLemon’s necklaces crafted from a delicate chain, freshwater pearls, and faceted gemstones.
Another way to make a statement without being too bulky is to use an unconventional necklace length or a adding bright colored stones set without a large amount of metal. We love this necklace with a slice of bright green chalcedony wrapped in a fine outline of gold vermeil.
Sweet and Sentimental
Is mom known for being softhearted and turns to mush over a gift with a story behind it? For the sentimental mom, we love pieces that have a romantic or nostalgic undertone.
Both beautiful and meaningful, Thortiuda pendants are a terrific gift for the sentimental mom. Thortiuda, meaning “angel” in Thai, are also known as angel whisperers. Each pendant cage encloses a colored chime. The delicate chime is meant to call our guardian angels to our side, so that they can protect us from all dangers.
Thortiuda is also the perfect gift for a mom-to-be celebrating her first mother’s day. The idea of the angel whisperer chime has been present across many cultures. It was worn during pregnancy to protect expectant mothers and their babies. After birth, it could be kept by the mother, or be given to the newborn baby to protect it in its sleep, to soothe it with the reassuring and familiar gentle chime, and to protect it by calling the invisible presence of its guardian angel.
Each chime insert color has an individual meaning and sound. On the fashion side, the interchangeable orbs allow the wearer to change the look of the necklace for different seasons and outfits.
Another wonderful way to surprise mom with a sentimental gift this Mother’s Day is through the Pandora Essence collection. Similar to the traditional Pandora charm bracelet, these pieces are personalized by choosing your bracelet and charms separately. However, unlike the Moments bracelet, the Essence charms celebrate different values and attributes of the people we love. Each charm is designed to reflect a chosen trait, such as loyalty or dedication, and this trait is engraved onto the side of the charm.
Pandora Essence is wonderful for moms just starting a charm bracelet because the charms themselves have silicon in the interior of the charm that allows the charm to stay in place on the bracelet. This lets mom style the bracelet by grouping charms together or separating them. Because the charms stay in place, the bracelet never looks empty or unfinished.
For moms with a distinct romantic side, we love jewelry accented with rose gold. The warm pink tones of rose gold make it a stand-out metal for the dreamy mom. Used widely in the Victorian era, it also has a touch of vintage fun that appeals to the nostalgic mom.
Pandora has recently expanded their collection to Pandora Rose. These pieces are made from a proprietary blend of copper and silver at the core with a layer of 14K rose gold plating on top. We love the pieces with some sparkle- the stones stand out so brightly against the rose! They have designed some of our favorite rings in Pandora Rose as well. Add a rose accent to a sterling stack, or create an all rose collection!
To gift mom a full set in Pandora Rose, we love the Timeless Elegance design. This classic style is given a twist with the warm rose gold hue and is available as stud earrings, ring, and pendant.
Many of our WinterLemon pieces are also available with rose gold plated accents. We love the mix of rose gold with the soft grey of labradorite- the iridescence in the labradorite gemstone picks up the warm pinks of the rose. We love the sweet bee necklace below as a dainty piece to honor the queen bee of the family!
For a more classic look in rose gold, Elle Jewelry’s rose gold plated sterling pieces feature iconic shapes updated in the rose gold metal. The fleur earrings and necklace are a beautiful romantic style. For a more modern feel, we love the sparkling bar necklace that mixes rose gold with shiny silver.
Another way to treat the sentimental mom this Mother’s Day is to feather her nest with some accents that reflect the love of her family. Upstairs in Haven, our locally-made burlap canvases feature a family tree and nostalgic phrases shared between mother and child.
We also love our Love You to the Moon and Back and This is my Happy Place pillows as a way to brighten up mom’s home with expressions of love.
Accessorize that Gift Card!
Everyone loves gift cards- they are versatile and let mom pick something you know she will like. But as fun as using a gift card is, opening a gift card on Mother’s Day is not very exciting. Luckily, there are some great creative ways to jazz up that gift with some small accessories that give a hint of the gift card being received!
Is mom a coffee lover? These new mugs from Chase and Wonder are a great way to accessorize a gift certificate to Starbucks, Dunkin’ Donuts, or your local coffee shop. When the gift card is spent, she will still think of you every time she has a cup.
For the mom that loves to travel, these travel bags and accessories made from upcycled military tarps are a great way to surprise mom with a fun trip. The adorable makeup are also a great way to present a gift card to Sephora or Ulta!
If mom loves the spa or getting a massage, add to her relaxation with these luxurious bath and body products from Blithe and Bonny. Hand-crafted in the USA, they smell amazing and they are beautifully presented. In store we have the Cedar & Sage, Grapefruit, and Herbes de Provence Scents available.
Does mom like to relax at the end of the day with a nice bottle of wine or craft beer? Get her a beer or wine caddy and fill it with her favorite bottle!
Do you want to give mom the gift of Pandora but are letting her choose her own charms? Bundle your Versant gift card with a Pandora Care Kit. The Care Kit is only $15 and contains 2 polishing cloths, 2 pouches, a soft brush for cleaning, and a sterling clip opener/keychain.
Another fun and affordable way to present any gift card is in a canvas pouch. Pouches are great for carrying essentials or using as a cute clutch. Hide your gift card inside to give mom a special surprise!
Whatever type of mom you are celebrating this Mother’s Day, we hope you found some ideas to help celebrate the wonderful woman she is. Stop by the store to see some of our suggestions in person (and so much more!). Our friendly staff would love to show you some of our personal favorites and work with you to find the perfect gift to make mom smile.

Are you ready to celebrate mom with some sparkle? The Pandora Mother’s Day collection has arrived at Versant! This collection adds some great new family charms and beautiful new jewelry options. Check out our overview of the new pieces below!
Floating Locket Collection
The Pandora Floating Locket and Petite Charms have been a very popular new addition. Made from sterling silver and sapphire crystal used in high-end watches, they are both high quality and high fashion. We are excited that they have expanded their locket offerings with the Mother’s Day collection!
The Mother’s Day collection has seen the addition of two new locket styles and some fun new concepts for filling them. A medium sized heart locket necklace can display a set of three petite charms and a small heart locket can display a single charm. The smaller locket can be worn on a chain or on the bracelet. The smaller locket comes filled with a single heart charm that can be interchanged with any of the petite charms to change the look of the locket.
In addition to the new lockets, Pandora has released plate inserts that fill the back of the locket. These inserts can be worn by themselves for a simple statement or layered with petite charms. We love the new white enamel insert with “love” written across the heart! The enamel plate and a plain silver plate are available for the medium heart locket. A small enamel plate is available for the small heart locket. The small plate can also be used in the larger locket as a floating charm!
Lastly, a new set of Petite Charms, Infinite Love, was released with this collection as well. These charms feature a mini Sparkling Love Knot, a sparkling infinite symbol, and a white enamel heart.
Mother’s Day Charms
As always, the Mother’s Day collection includes a new assortment of family and love related charms to add another layer of love to mom’s bracelet. This years charms are themed around celebrating relationships and accented with gold and pearls.
The new family tree charm, Tree of Hearts, is the first family tree charm that is not a dangling style. With its pretty iridescent white enamel and gold heart, it is a beautiful way to honor the bonds between family members. The Interlocked Hearts and Heart of Romance charms also feature a touch of gold and are a great way to bring some warmth to a black and white bracelet.
The Luminous Love Knot charm is designed to mirror the Sparkling Love Knot with the addition of pearls. Part of a collection that includes a pendant, earrings, and necklace, this charm is a great gift for the mom who loves classic elegance.
The Mother & Son Bond heart charm is adorned with “Mother” on one side and “Son” on the other. A great gift to celebrate the mom of boys, it shows how a mother and son are two parts of the same heart. Similarly, the Mother and Daughter hearts show the special bond between mother and daughter. In this set, mom gets to keep one half of the heart and daughter gets to wear the other!
Tribute to Mom and Love for Mother are great choices for a mother-themed bracelet. These Mother’s Day new releases are perfect for the mom who collects a special mother charm every year on this holiday.
The Pandora Mother’s Day collection this year includes some charms for new moms as well. The new baby stroller is more detailed than past designs and has a crystal heart adorning the side. The Baby Treasures dangle includes a small pacifier, teddy bear, and white enamel heart and is a great gift for any mom-to-be.
The Precious Heart Charm is one of two Limited Edition charms to be released this year. This charm will only be available during the Mother’s Day season! The second Limited Edition charm will be released with the gift sets on April 13th.
There are also some new releases in the love theme that are a wonderful gift from a husband to a wife. The Family and Love clip features a smooth background with a golden heart center. The Infinite Love spacers add some meaningful sparkle on either side of a dangling charm or colorful murano. For the romantic, the My Wife Always locket charm has a vintage looking design with “my wife always” engraved on the interior. Lastly, the Love Always safety chain expresses a powerful sentiment while keeping mom’s treasures safe!
The last charm additions with the Pandora Mother’s Day release celebrate hobbies and occasions. The sparkling dress pairs well with the stiletto and martini glass to represent a gal that enjoys a night on the town. The running shoe is a good choice for a mom on-the-go or an avid runner. Lastly, the newly designed graduation cap is tailor-made for the proud graduate. We love the hearts on the charm’s bale!
New Jewelry Additions
We love the new jewelry additions that were released this year. There are a ton of great new rings in some innovative styles!
The Luminous Love Knot collection, like the Sparkling Love Knot, includes a pendant, ring, and stud earring design. Accented with a small pearl, they are a great update to a current favorite.
On the ring side, the new pearl wrap ring is a stunner! We also love the halo design ring to make a statement without feeling too weighty. The double ended heart ring, with one side in shiny silver and the other in white enamel, is very sweet and petite.
To make a bolder statement, the new circle and heart signet rings add a new twist to a tried-and-true design. This is a very on-trend style. Get them engraved with an initial to really make it personal!
The Sparkling Strand bracelet, a staff favorite, got a new look with some pink crystals. This bracelet is dainty, adjustable, and extraordinarily sparkly. At $50, it’s a steal!
The last jewelry additions include some beautiful and innovative pearl pieces. A long pearl-accented chain necklace is adjustable using a small bead with a silicon stopper. We love the double-sided pearl earrings. Not only are they reversible, they offer an amazing profile view! The Luminous Droplets earrings and pendant are perfect for the simple girl who likes an understated look.

Make sure to stay tuned for news on the Mother’s Day Gift Sets, available starting April 13th!
The new Alex and Ani Mother’s Day collection has arrived at Versant! There are a lot of beautiful Limited Edition sets and bangles that have come with this collection. Like last year’s Mother’s Day collection, these pieces are only available for a short period of time. Make sure to stop by and pick one up for mom before they are gone!
Alex and Ani describes the new collection as a representation of what it means to love infinitely. The connection between mother and child knows no bounds- it strengthens, depends, and evolves over time. Keep reading for some of the highlights of the new collection below.
We love the new multi-bracelet sets as a way to give mom a curated group meant to be worn together. Sets are also a fun way to start an Alex and Ani collection for someone, as it gives them both bangle and beaded styles.
The Color Infusion Mom set of three ($98) features a beautiful heart with “mom” inscribed in the enamel. This bangle is accompanied by two beaded bracelets that complement the enamel of the heart bangle. The Color Infusion Mom set is available in shiny silver with a periwinkle enamel and Shiny Gold with a teal enamel. The Color Infusion Mom design is available as an expandable necklace as well!
The “I Love You Mom” Set of Five ($128) features a Limited Edition bangle with “I Love You Mom” inscribed around an iridescent enamel heart. This bangle is accompanied by four beaded bracelets in soft pinks and iridescent whites. The I Love You Mom set is available in the Rafaelian Silver and Gold finishes.
The Infinite Connection Set of Two ($48) is a meaningful way to celebrate the connection between a mother and a daughter. Mothers and daughters share a profound and infinite connection. Through the laughs, tears, advice, and growing pains, the bond remains unbreakable. The Infinite Connection set is available in the Rafaelian Silver and Gold finishes.
In addition to the curated sets, Alex and Ani has included some new bangle styles in the Mother’s Day collection.
The Limited Edition Because I Love You ($38) features a bright enamel background on a shiny finish. This bangle is adorned with a heart-shaped Swarovski crystal to add a little sparkle to mom’s stack.
Another exciting new addition that we are hoping becomes a permanent part of the collection is the new bridal collection ($34). Celebrating special relationships with the bride, these bangles include Mother of the Bride, Maid of Honor, and Bridesmaid. Available in both Rafaelian Silver and Gold, each bangle has a Swarovski crystal as the centerpiece. These bangles would be a great way to ask your special gals to be a part of your bridal party!
Charity by Design Additions
The Alex and Ani Mother’s Day collection has also seen some new additions to the Charity by Design bangles.
The whimsical Fairy bangle ($38) celebrates dreams coming true and the power of belief. 20% of the purchase price will go to support Give Kids the World Village. This charity creates magical memories for children with life-threatening illnesses.
The new Baby Block bangle ($28) symbolizes building strong foundations and is a great way to celebrate a new member of the family. 20% of the purchase price for this bangle will support March of Dimes. March of Dimes helps moms have full-term pregnancies and researches the problems of premature births and birth defects to save babies’ lives.
The newly redesigned Living Water bangle encases a bright blue drop of water in a heart. Symbolizing community and love, it reminds us that we must work together to quench the thirst of the world. 20% of the purchase price of this bracelet will go to Living Water International. This charity works to provide clean, safe drinking water throughout the world.
We love all of the new designs Alex and Ani added in their Mother’s Day Collection. We think that mom will love them as well! Stop by Versant to see these new additions in person.

The classic Valentine’s Day gift features hearts- and lots of them. A symbol of love and affection, the heart design is the centerpiece of many Valentine’s Day collections.
One of our favorite new Valentine’s Day collections this year comes from Pandora. The Limited Edition gift sets available for the holiday are always a special selection, and this year’s additions offer beautiful curated sets, a stunning presentation, and a great price.
For those looking to start a Pandora bracelet or add a new bracelet to an existing collection, the Open Hearts bracelet gift set is a great gift idea. This set comes with a silver Pandora bracelet with sparkling heart clasp, two heart-adorned clips, and the new Encased in Love charm. The Encased in Love charm has a faceted cerise pink bead surrounded by an openwork silver heart motif- it is one of our favorite new charms! With its red leather heart-shaped Pandora travel case, this is truly a beautiful way to deliver a gorgeous gift.
If you are looking to add a special charm to a growing Pandora collection, the Lovestruck charm is a great choice. Not only is it a limited edition selection that will only be available for a short time, but it has a great combination of bright enamel, lustrous silver, and a touch of sparkle. This charm is also presented in a red leather box, making it stand out from other selections.
For those looking to warm up their Pandora collection with a little gold, the new Love You Forever and Love Script charms are must-haves. We love these new designs, which are accented with clear CZs and a touch of 14K gold. Really want to make a statement? Pair some two-tone charms with the new sparkling 14K clasp bracelet!
Another brand that has a heavy focus on heart designs is Brighton Collectibles. The heart is represented as their signature logo. Just as love takes many forms, so do the hearts in Brighton’s collections. Some look like hand-crafted masterworks, some are lacy and modern, and still others are studded with Swarovski crystals.
What makes buying Brighton even better at this time of year? Until February 10th, you get a free Sweetheart tote when you spend $100 or more!
Alex and Ani has added an extensive new Valentine’s Day collection this year as well. We love the Alive with Love Gift Set to stun your sweetheart. This five bracelet set, available in the Rafaelian Silver and Rafaelian Gold finishes, includes three pink beaded bracelets, the newly designed Love bangle, and a crystal heart bangle only available for a limited time in this set!
In the single bangle options, Alex and Ani has also redesigned the Cupid’s Heart bangle. This new design has a more three-dimensional feel and features cupid’s bow in the heart. The new Product(RED) Heart of Strength Charity By Design bangle is also a statement-making Valentine’s Day piece. Featuring a bold red crystal, this bangle provides 20% of the purchase price to the Global Fund to fight AIDS.
Everything’s Coming Up Rose Gold
Does your sweetheart love the Valentine’s Day season but doesn’t want to be showered with hearts? Rose gold is a great choice for a gift that catches the feeling of the season without being overtly Valentine’s Day themed. Not only is the soft pink tone romantic, but it has become the popular choice for everybody’s new favorite metal.
For those just starting to collect rose gold pieces, we like pieces that combine a rose gold finish with silver and sparkling stones. Ti Sento Milano makes some beautiful rose gold accented pieces that use this trendy metal in a classic style, making them instant favorites.
Freida Rothman Jewelry also features rose gold in some of their stacking bangles. Set with sparkling CZs, these pieces look great paired with some of her sterling and oxidized sterling bangles.
For a more delicate look that still packs some serious sparkle, Officina Bernardi has a lot of rose-gold finished pieces. With their patented cut, this sterling silver jewelry reflects light like it is studded with stones. They offer a wide range of necklace lengths, making them ideal for layering.
Officina Bernardi’s elegant sparkling bracelets that look gorgeous by themselves or stacked for some added drama.
If your sweetheart is an Alex and Ani enthusiast, there is a lot to be excited about on the rose gold front with this year’s Valentine’s Day collection. The stand-out piece in our minds is the Because I Love You set of three in the shiny rose gold finish. Alex and Ani has also released some Limited Edition single bangles as part of this collection. We love the sweet Frog Prince and Romero Britto XO Bangle in the shiny rose finish. Pair them with one of the Limited Edition shiny rose finish beaded bangles for a set that is sure to stun!
Valentine’s Day may have the reputation of being flashy and full of grand gestures, but the celebration of love is often appreciating the moments spent together as a couple and as a family. A great way to commemorate these moments are pieces that symbolize family bonds and the many positive things that she brings to the world.
Waxing Poetic charms are a great way to personalize a jewelry gift with sentiments, symbols representing children or other loved ones, and other inspirations. The newly released 2017 charms include some meaningful new virtues in the Word Play collection.
The new Aim True arrow is also a great choice for Valentine’s Day. Whether it symbolizes cupid’s arrow or other ambitions, this charm is meant to inspire you to aim high, far, dear, and true.
With a versatile selection of sizes, metals, and styles, Waxing Poetic makes it easy to create a one-of-a-kind piece that captures the heart of a person. We like using different sized medallions with some three dimensional shapes to add variety. Mix initials, birthstones, and an inspirational sentiment to curate a heartfelt collection!
Another way to celebrate what makes the person you love unique is the Pandora Essence collection. Unlike the traditional Pandora charms, which celebrate the moments of one’s life, the Essence collection celebrates various virtues within a person. With virtues such as dedication, generosity and passion, this is a great way to honor the things you love about her. These beads will stay in place on the Essence bracelet and resemble natural stones and sparkling beads, making it look less like a traditional charm bracelet.
In addition to the flexible sterling bracelet, the Essence collection offers a thin wire bangle (great for stacking!) and a silver necklace. We think 45cm necklace looks elegant as a delicate statement with a single charm. A set of silver charms with additional interchangeable charms for a pop of color is also a great option that offers her some versatility!
Another way to pay tribute to your personal love story is to honor the place where you have shared important moments. For those local to Bethlehem, we love the latitude and longitude cuff bracelets and bar necklaces we have had custom made for us from Lat & Lo. The pieces have the coordinates of our hometown with the Star of Bethlehem inscribed with our city name on the back.
Want to bring that special into your home? Check out our exclusive local map prints! Available framed or unframed, these are also a great statement when you showcase two places side-by-side to show how your two histories combined to make the family that you are today.
You can’t go wrong with the classics. With clean lines and a touch of sparkle, these pieces will never go out of style. For the lady who wants a signature item that can be worn on any occasion, a classic piece is a great investment.
One of our favorite jewelry makers that offer a classic look is Gabriel and Company. Known best for their fine jewelry and stunning engagement rings, their sterling silver fashion line brings the same attention to detail and quality. Accented with natural stones and small diamonds, these pieces can be worn with a sweater and jeans or dressed up with a little black dress.
For those looking for something original and meaningful to wear every day, we love POP Diamond Jewelry. This 0.10 carat diamond on a colored cord gives a touch of luxury to our everyday lives. Inspired by protective eye bracelets, POP stands for Power of Protection. In many cultures, a cord is worn on the wrist after being earned through charitable deeds. Keeping with this tradition, POP donates a portion of proceeds from the sale of their bracelet to charitable causes. Looking good and doing good at the same time- it doesn’t get better than that!
Our last pick for the traditional girl is a tried and true Valentine’s Day classic- a piece of fine jewelry! If you are looking for a true classic piece of jewelry, gold and white gold jewelry set with gemstones present a gift that will last through a lifetime. For the girl who is loyal to a few pieces of jewelry instead of changing with the many trends, a good piece of jewelry is a great investment. Unlike sterling silver, which is a soft metal not durable enough for daily wear through many years, gold jewelry will become an heirloom piece because it is made to last.
When choosing a fine jewelry piece, we love simple styles with a touch of sparkle. A tried and true shape, such as a starburst or a circle, and clear stones will remain classics and survive the changing fashions.
Turn Up the Romance
Are you looking for a gift for the girl who lives for a good love story? Does she sigh at the sight of hearts and get teary-eyed when thinking about the movie The Notebook? It’s time to turn up the romance!
An iconic symbol of romance is the city of Paris. Bring the City of Love home with our vintage French photos. Le Baiser, or “The Kiss”, reminds us of an old black and white romantic movie.
Another great romantic find is our WinterLemon jewelry. Locally handmade, they have some gorgeous pieces that use natural stones, pearls, and vintage pieces. We love these necklaces that feature antique lockets- they are truly one-of-a-kind!
For a more delicate look, Ila and I lockets also evoke a sense of romance. These petite white gold pieces are perfect to keep safe precious memories. Their antique styling and elegant profile make them great bridal gifts as well!
The trendsetter likes to be on the cutting edge of fashion and loves a piece that stands out from the rest of the crowd. This means thinking outside the box when it comes to traditional textures, metals, and styles to find something unique.
We think Julie Vos is a great start for a trendsetter who wants to push the edges of classic but doesn’t want to commit to a piece that might go quickly out of style. Julie Vos jewelry is finished with 24K gold over for a bright, warm finish that is more exciting than a traditional silver. Their innovative use of natural stones and inspiration from nature and classical architecture make them stand out in a crowd.
We love the Milano 6-stone bangles stacked with different stones- grab a few neutrals then add a pop of color! These bangles also look great stacked with some of the thin textured gold bangles or a wider piece accented with similar stones.
Julie Vos’ long, layering necklaces have been heavily featured in the fashion blogs, especially the Coin Pendant.
For a statement piece, we are head over heals for the new Fern Cuff. Inspired by natural motifs, this piece has beautiful detailing. The openwork design gives this larger cuff a lighter feel, keeping it from looking too heavy.
Another fun fashion line for the trendsetter is Freida Rothman Jewelry. Freida Rothman uses metal and textures in an innovative way to make pieces with a metropolitan feel. We love the way her use of oxidized silver makes the sparkling stones stand out! This set of stacking rings is one of our favorite pieces from her line- wear them all together for a statement, or separate them for days when you want a more delicate look.
The Contemporary Deco line within Freida Rothman is a great way for the silver lover to get a more edgy piece. Using a matte sterling silver accented with darker oxidized silver, these pieces are light and bright but still have a unique quality.
For the trendsetter that is really looking for a head turning piece, Freida’s Rose D’Or collection is a statement-making find. With a crushed stone look, these pieces play with sparkle in a non-traditional way. We love the Radiance Medallion!
Our last choice for the trendsetter is the hottest fad on the necklace front right now- chokers! A lot of our favorite jewelry lines have come out with a choker option, the result of which is a lot of fun and different looks available.
The Paris Bracelet offers a great choker made from couture stretch ribbon, making it easily adjustable and comfortable to wear.
Both Pandora and WinterLemon also have beautiful choker options. Pandora’s woven fabric choker can be worn by itself or with 1-5 charms. We love the look of accenting it with a single delicate pendant- the new birthstones are a great choice! Our WinterLemon chokers range from classic, with natural stones and diamond accented pendants, to the on-trend with freshwater pearls, leather, and lariats.
Valentine’s Day isn’t just for sweethearts! We have a lot of sweet options to help moms and dads spoil the younger crowd and show them that the love of family is just as important as romantic love.
Our upstairs home and lifestyle boutique, Haven, has some great gifts for younger girls. We love these witty pouches as a sweet gift to tell a young girl that you are thinking about her on Valentine’s Day. With sayings that affirm that who she is and what she does is beautiful, they are a great gift for any girl.
You can also find some fun decorations for a young girl’s room, like this canvas with the quote “I Love You to the Moon and Back” or its companion, “You are my Sunshine.”
Another fun gift for a younger girl is Alex and Ani’s updated Kindred Cord collection. These cord bracelets are a little more delicate than the traditional collection, which makes them great for smaller wrists. Adjustable through the use of the black cord, they feature fun tokens and heartfelt symbols in sterling silver.
For the teen girl, Pandora rings are all the rage. These sweet sterling silver rings have a lot of options for Valentine’s Day. Their Forever Love and One Love rings feature small hearts and are equally cute worn by themselves or stacked. The My Princess and Heart’s Tiara rings have been very popular with young girls. We love them as a sweet gift from a dad to his princess!
