The Wonder of The Holidays

Is it really that time again? Holidays? Do you feel the same? Can someone tell me where the year went? For many, like me, the wonder of the holidays means spending lots of time wondering what to get people on your gift list. Well this year, I’m determined to get a head start and turn that “wonder-time” into true holiday wonder and maybe some peace of mind. So like a kid in search of holiday candy I peeked at some of the things that the QVC buyers have in store. I found great gift ideas and was pleased to see that even at the holidays, good things still come in three’s; choices of 3 sizes, 3 colors and even 3 styles. That’s enough choice to help us “wow” the trendiest fashionista on our list! Here’s what I found:

All fashion followers know that this year’s “must-have” accessory comes in shades of rose-colored metal. Since the launch of Bronzo Italia, QVC viewers have been treated to this important trend. Some of the benefits of Bronzo Italia is that being nickel-free these pieces are kinder to sensitive skin, they’re tarnish resistant to stay looking great and, most importantly, they create the look of precious rose gold items without the gold price.  This holiday, you can treat the those trendsetters on your list to a highly wearable and fashion-forward pair of Bold Round Hoop Earrings (J271865) in a choice of 3 sizes: 1 inch, 1 ½ inches or a large 2 inch version.

For the glamour goddess on your list, one of our favorite designers, Judith Ripka, is featuring a gorgeous earring based upon her popular “Monaco” style (You may have seen her wear these in Vogue’s “25 to Watch” piece). They create major impact! Set in sterling with the hottest trend right now, blackened rhodium plating, which highlights the gems, these earrings come in 3 sophisticated color palettes: Champagne Quartz mixed with Diamonique simulated pink tourmalines, Ginger Quartz placed against brown Diamonique simulated diamonds, or Mint Quartz framed in Diamonique simulated emeralds. These earrings (J266172) contain an impressive 8.50 cttw of gemstones for major red-carpet style.

I know that Affinity Diamond ladies look forward to “The Holiday Ring”. The yearly design dilemma is that one style simply can’t fit everyone’s taste. Here’s the solution! A selection of 3 styles! These rings (J274389) are all set into 14K gold and offer an impressive 1.00 cttw of sparkling genuine diamonds!

For vintage lovers, the Art Deco design is set into a chic mix of rose and white gold. The ring showcases pave-set round diamonds punctuated by 4 semi-bezel set tapered baguettes around the “north-south” orientation. If she covets today’s popular 3-stone-ring styling but likes large presence, the cluster technique on this new holiday style provides impressive size with augmented sparkle because of the number of diamonds. For those who desire a round and baguette diamond mix, there’s a multi-row curved design classic cocktail style with an abundant row upon row of prong set round diamonds framing set channels of baguettes. All rings feature additional diamonds set on the shoulders for maximum presence. All three will be available on November 1st on!

This season I promised myself to be prepared and not wait until the last minute and I’ve already found some great solutions. I’m hoping that this will take the wonder-time out of my holidays and replace my holiday worry, with real holiday wonder. What about you?
