Tom’s Favorites

By  | 

I love to help my customers pick out holiday gifts that their loved ones will cherish for a lifetime. This year, my team of designers and I were inspired by little gifts of jewelry that create the biggest holiday moments. Let me share with you why I selected these four gifts as my favorite exclusive Shane Co. styles from our Big Little Gifts collection.



The minimalist look is as popular as ever and I love the sleek style of this petite diamond bracelet in 14k gold. It delivers a big, sparkling look in a design that can be worn every day. Bracelet stacking is a huge trend and this bracelet can easily be styled with other bracelets to make a personalized fashion statement. Each round diamond is individually prong-set, so no matter how active her lifestyle, the diamonds will remain securely in place.



Colored stones have been a special passion of mine ever since I started in the jewelry business, and they’re also one of today’s hottest trends. We’ve taken this trend to a new level by combining it with geometric shapes and the sparkle of diamonds. London blue topaz and aquamarine create a dazzling ombré effect with the pavé diamonds, all arranged in a fashion-forward cluster design. I was so impressed by the design sketches of this pendant that we also created matching earrings.



When I saw the curved bar concept at the international jewelry show in Vicenza, Italy, I knew our customers would love it. Our design team has created exclusive takes on this popular look, including this curved diamond necklace in 14k gold. It can be layered with other necklaces, and like the petite diamond bracelet above, this necklace puts sparkle front and center in a style that complements any neckline. It literally adds a smile to your entire wardrobe.



This is my favorite statement piece in our Big Little Gifts collection. The sparkle of the 81 hand-picked diamonds will certainly turn heads. Each triangle has three perfectly hand-matched diamonds. I love this necklace’s stylish nod to today’s popular geometric trend. Another reason this necklace makes a great gift is because it easily transitions from day to night, so you can be sure it will be worn often.
