Mother’s Day is on the horizon! Are you overwhelmed trying to find the perfect gift for mom? Worry no more- we have compiled a list of our favorite things to make mom sparkle this Mother’s Day! From the classics to unique finds, we have included something for everyone. Can’t live without something on the list? Many of our items are available on our new online shop!
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.
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!
Our Talisman Collection also includes soy candles scented using essential oils. Each candle comes with a booklet explaining the symbol meaning and the benefits of the essential oils used.

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.
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!
Want to explore more of our local designers? You can find WinterLemon here and our Star Collection here.
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!

The Pandora 2018 Mother’s Day collection is here and it has added beautiful new pieces in virtually every category of Pandora! Focusing on soft pinks with hints of sparkle, the Mother’s Day collection is meant to help us celebrate the bonds of love. Check out our overview of all of the new pieces below!
Pandora Mother’s Day Collection Family Related Charms
As always, the Mother’s Day collection’s main focus is charms that celebrate the family and mom’s place within it. This year’s collection really goes beyond the traditional “mom” charms- we love the unique ways the new designers have found to honor mom!
Two of our new favorite charms are the Mother and Baby Bird dangle and the Perfect Home dangle. The birds are such a sweet representation of a mother and child relationship and have a beautiful ombre effect in the sparkling stones that surround the birds.
The Perfect Home is a locket-style charm that opens to say “Home is where MOM is.”
Another one of our new favorite charms is the Degrees of Love charm. With a soft enamel that blends from pink to lavender, one side says “❤ you more” and the other says “❤ you most”. We love that this charm celebrates our love for mom but still has a beautiful abstract look! The new enamel Love Mom charm is also a very pretty complement to the colors of the season and is a great look for those moms who prefer the silver and enamel charms to those with pavé stones.
We also love the new engraved “Mama Bear” charm to celebrate how fierce our mother’s love can be!
Rounding out the family themed charms are some beautiful new family tree charms, mom and harmonious hearts dangles, whimsical balloon animals, and a new murano glass charm with glitter pink in the interior.
The Bonds of Love themed charms feature a bow motif and, in addition to two new clips and a heart bow charm, include a new “statement charm” that is much larger than the traditional Pandora charms. We love the way the Brilliant Bow looks styled by itself on an open bangle!
In addition to the family themed charms, this year’s Mother’s Day Collection includes some fun new celebration charms! These range from milestone birthdays and achievements to bridal themed charms.
We think the new Celebration Cake charm, with it’s multicolored enamel icing and “Congrats” tag, is particularly adorable. The Celebration Bouquet and Best Bridesmaid charms are a great way to ask your friends to be a part of your bridal party or commemorate the day!
Other additions include a love themed safety chain, a Love Couple trio that includes a mustache, “Mr & Mrs.” heart charm, and pink lips, a 2018 graduation scroll, milestone age or anniversary charms, and an Achievement trophy.
The 2018 Mother’s Day Collection is a big step forwards for Pandora Rose lovers! There are a lot of new additions in the charms category, including both new designs and some of our favorite silver designs redesigned in Pandora Rose.
One of our favorite Pandora Rose charms is the Mother & Daughter set of 2. We love the combination of the Pandora Rose with the cream enamel. This is a great gift for daughters with Pandora to give because it includes a gift for yourself as well!
In the new Pandora Rose charms. the Hearts Filigree, Pattern of Love, Part of My Heart, and Harmonious Hearts Pacifier are all designs available only in the Rose. We particularly like the Patterns of Love, which has “Love Makes a Family” engraved on the back and a pretty lattice design on the front.
Pandora always includes some great value gift sets in their Mother’s Day Collection. This year’s sets are a real treat with a great variety of stylings!
The Perfect Mom bangle set is a wonderful gift for the silver loving mom. Add a new bangle to stack on with her existing bracelets or start off her collection with this set! It includes the Heart Bangle and the Perfect Mom charm. At $99, it represents a 14% savings over the normal retail price of $115 and comes in the special Mother’s Day limited edition box.
The In My Heart gift set is a great introduction for the mom who wants to start collecting Pandora Rose. This set includes the Rose Heart clasp bracelet, two Rose Shining Path clips, and the new In My Heart two-tone charm. At $229, it represents a 10% savings over the normal retail price of $255 and comes in the special Mother’s Day limited edition box.
The Flourishing Hearts gift set is great for the mom who has been branching out into Pandora’s beautiful jewelry options beyond their charm offerings. The set includes the Flourishing Hearts stud earrings and Flourishing Hearts dangle charm on Pandora sterling 45cm chain. The charm can be worn on the chain or added to her Pandora bracelet! At $99, it represents a 17.5% savings over the normal retail price of $255 and comes in the special Mother’s Day limited edition box.
The Sparkling Mom gift set brings mom into the innovative world of Pandora’s memory lockets. Made with sapphire crystal, like luxury watches, to deter scratching of the clear surface, these lockets let you make beautiful vignettes with Pandora petite charms. The locket included in this set is reversible- you can wear it with the sparkling pavé side or the smooth silver side facing up. It includes three of the new letter charms spelling out “mom.” At $129, it represents a 24% savings over the normal retail price of $255 and comes in the special Mother’s Day limited edition box.
The last special addition this year is the Flourishing Hearts Limited Edition locket bangle. This bangle has the new locket-style clasp with the Flourishing Hearts motif and is engraved “Love makes a family” on the bangle. You can add charms to the bangle, but we think this bangle would also be beautiful standing by itself stacked with mom’s other bracelets! This is a Limited Edition offering and is $75.
Earrings, Rings, and More
With the Mother’s Day Collection, a small group of new jewelry items beyond the charms has been released as well.
One of our favorite new additions is the new Alphabet petites ($10) for the Memory Lockets. These new initials are reversible- one side is a smooth silver and the other has a pretty texture studded with hearts and small dots. Mix initials and birthstones to make a representation of your family!
We love the new Brilliant Bow earrings ($60)- more abstract (and mature) than the existing bow earrings, the long line of these is really pretty when you wear them as an ear climber. Other earring additions include new small hoop-style abstract heart earrings in both silver and Pandora Rose, Flourishing Heart studs, heart studs with a soft pink enamel.
In new necklaces, there are two disc-style engraved necklaces ($75). These are a longer length and would make great layering pieces. The new Pandora Signature collection has added some heart pendant designs in both silver and Pandora Rose as well.
One of our favorite additions in the Mother’s Day Collection is the Pandora Rose version of the wishbone rings released during the holidays! These look great stacked together or stacked with their silver counterparts. The Shimmering Wish with its sparkling CZs is particularly pretty! There are also two new Pandora Signature rings, one in silver and one in Rose, and a Brilliant Bow statement ring.
Pandora has continued to innovate in their bracelet designs this year. The new bolo-style sliding bracelets, which began last year with the Sparkling Strand, have made their way into the charm line as well. These bracelets adjust to fit any wrist size, making sizing much easier, and have interchangeable ends so that you can make two-tone designs! The Sparkling Strand bracelet has also been updated to include a new version with golden colored CZs.
Pandora has also added some new styles to the Essence Collection with it’s Mother’s Day release.
Our favorite addition in the Essence line is the beautiful new Pandora Rose necklace! The perfect length, it looks gorgeous styles with Pandora Rose essence charms. We also love the way the Dignity Pearl charm and faceted stone charms look to add some contrast to the Rose tones. One of our other favorite new pieces is the Love Makes a Family Pandora Rose Essence charm. It has a texture of beautiful scrolling vines to represent the branches of your family tree.
Other additions to the collection include new smooth Follow Your Heart spacers in silver rand Pandora Rose, Rose versions of some of the silver dangle charms, and the Bonds of Love charm which has a rose cage encases a blush pink crystal.
The last addition to this year’s Mother’s Day Collection are the new Pandora Disney charms. This season’s new additions focus on the iconic Mickey and Minnie and their adventures as a couple.
We particularly love the whimsical Mickey & Minnie Vintage Car charm- it has so many details!
Other new additions include two new safety chains, a Floating Minnie Dangle, a new Vintage Mickey clip with white enamel, Mickey’s glove, and a Vintage Minnie charm with pink enamel.
We hope you love the new Pandora Mother’s Day collection as much as we do! Stop by Versant in person to see all of the new pieces in person and let us help you style them into a selection that mom will love. As always, we are grateful to all of our customers who choose to #shopsmall and support our local small business.
Valentine’s Day is almost here! Need some gift ideas for that special someone or some fun things to hint at for yourself? We’ve made it easy this year with our top ten picks to bring the love this Valentine’s Day. Flowers wilt within the week and chocolate gets eaten as soon as it is opened, but jewelry will let your love sparkle on all year long!
Compass Rose- Let Love Guide the Way
We love our beautiful Compass Rose necklaces and bracelets. Not only are they elegant, but they have a lovely meaning as well. Keep the sentiment that “Life brings us to unexpected places. Love brings us home” or choose one of our custom cards tailored to different relationships and occasions. We are particularly fond of the new two-tone necklace with rose gold for the romantic-at-heart.
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.
Sorrelli Jewelry- Sparkle Your Way Into Her Heart
Does your girl love to sparkle? Sorrelli Jewelry will help her shine! Crafted with Swarovski crystals, this locally designed jewelry line (from Kutztown, PA!) makes both statement pieces and everyday gems to help your special someone get her glitter on. Even better- until Valentine’s Day, purchases in Sorrelli Jewelry of $100 or more will receive a beautiful pair of blush stud earrings for free!
Stacking Bracelets- Create a One-of-a-Kind Collection
Does your special someone celebrate every day with her own arm party of stacking bracelets? Let us help you create a coordinated stack to express your love and fit into her personal style and personality!
Thortiuda- Call Her Angel
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!
WinterLemon- You are my Sun, My Moon, and All My Stars
We love the celestial pieces in our locally-made WinterLemon jewelry, which are handmade from precious metals and genuine gemstones. We think they are a stylish way to express the heavenly nature of love. Not only do they let you show your love for your special someone, they let you show your love for you community as well be supporting a local artist!
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.
Alex and Ani- A Gift for the Gals
Celebrating Galentine’s Day with your girlfriends? Drop them a sweet treat with one of Alex and Ani’s new Valentine’s Day bangles! We love the new “Mon Amie” bangle as a way of celebrating friendship- it translates to “My Friend” from French. Add a sparkling Swarovski bangle or one of the new beaded pieces in the shiny rose finish for an extra touch of sparkle!
Chase & Wonder- Humor Her
Does your special someone always tell you that one of her favorite things about you is your sense of humor? Check out some of our fun tongue-in-cheek gifts from upstairs in Haven! Does she always have an overflowing armful of things as she heads out the door to work or school? Get her one of our Chase & Wonder “Foxy Lady” totes!
Is one of your favorite times of the day the early morning when you sit side-by-side reaching optimal levels of caffeine together? Get a matching set of His and Hers coffee mugs. Fill them with some chocolates or a gift card to her favorite coffee place to add an extra treat!
The Gift of Choice
Are you feeling overwhelmed this Valentine’s Day? Give her the gift of choosing her own perfect gift with a Versant gift card. If you want to have something fun for her to unwrap, pick one of our fun (and affordable!) Katie Loxton pouches or wallets to hide the gift card in- when she opens it up she will get an extra surprise.
Stop by Versant to see all of our picks and person! While you are here, save yourself some time (and tape)- we will gift wrap your treasures in our signature wrapping for free. As always, thank you to all of our wonderful customers for choosing to #shopsmall with us and support our local small business.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
To accompany the new key locket, there are four new Petite charms. We love the lock and key together as a pair!
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!
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.
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.
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.
As always, Pandora has released some great value sets for the holiday. This year the sets come with some fun extras!
The Kiss Me bangle gift set includes a Pandora sterling bangle engraved with “Kiss Me” in dark red enamel, the Kiss emoji charm, and a pair of Sparkling Elegance earrings- all packaged in a light pink Limited Edition box. Even better- the set comes with a light pink Limited Edition makeup bag loaded with hearts. This set offers a savings of $56 from the price of the items purchased separately.
The Tree of Love bracelet set includes a Pandora sterling heart-clasp bracelet, the new Tree of Love dangle charm, and two Burst of Love clips, all packaged in the Limited Edition pink Valentine’s box. This set offers a savings of $46 from the price of the items purchased separately.
The last set is the Limited Edition Kiss More Lips charm. This charm comes packages in a Limited Edition pink box and includes a free red lip-shaped coin purse!
All of the gift sets come beautifully presented, making gift-giving easy this Valentine’s Day.
Make sure to stop by Versant to see all of the new Valentine’s Day pieces in person! We would love to help you navigate the many charms, old and new, to create a meaningful collection to give this holiday. As always, we are very grateful to all of our wonderful customers who choose to support our local, small business.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
Unlike many fashion jewelry lines that use cubic zirconia for added sparkle, Gabriel & Co uses natural stones, such as white topaz or diamonds.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The Transformative Dragonfly pendant is a gorgeous statement piece. This large charm is set with labradorite for a natural iridescence.
Even better- their charms can be worn in a variety of ways- hanging on a simple chain, stacked on brass or sterling bangles, or grouped together on one of their charm holders or beautiful beaded ensemble necklaces.
Many of the Waxing Poetic charms have a message engraved in the back making them reversible and giving them an extra layer of sentiment.
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.
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.
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!
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
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.
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.
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.
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.”
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.
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!)
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.
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!
This bee tassel/keychain in a seaglass blue is another one of our favorites.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
For those who went to college locally, we have prints available for Lafayette, Lehigh, and Moravian as well.
For the Rosy Romantic
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!
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!
If rings are more her thing, we have some beautiful thin stacking bands in rose gold. For a unique look, check out our rose gold and labradorite ring!
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.
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.
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.
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.
There is one gift that outshines any other for the sparkling star- diamonds! Nothing says sparkle like a white diamond set in white gold.
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!
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.
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.
In addition to our local map prints, we have some detailed bird’s eye view maps of local areas as well, including Allentown, Easton/Phillipsburg, Bethlehem, Philadelphia, New York, and Boston.
Have a guy with a sense of humor (but not humility?). Check out our witty “Dandy Lion” British screen printed tote from Chase and Wonder.
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.
Alex and Ani has also just released their first men’s cuff, the Meditating Eye. A Charity By Design piece benefiting the David Lynch foundation, this adjustable cuff brings protection and awareness.

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.
