The Gertie Kate and the Harper. Both priced under $130, these necklaces have very “charming” attributes. Go for a mixed metal look with the Gertie Kate with a sweet classic look on a gold dainty chain. Or for the more casual female grab the Harper with a little touch of pearl to bring out just enough of that lady like charm. These necklaces not only are both timeless, they are ageless and can be worn by ladies of all ages from 10 – 100.

If the person on your list is more into the dangles we have a great selection to choose from, but for this year the Penelope in gold and silver takes the cake. This earring hangs so freely and flawlessly from your lobes that you may forget that you’re even wearing them. The mix of gold and silver chains give it a nice touch that can go with any other jewelry you decide to pair them with. Or wear them on there own for they are a beauty that can stand alone and command an audience.

Year after year the Julie bracelet has been our go to arm candy for the simple fact that it is a great price point and comes in different shades so it is a sweet simple pick for any kind of bracelet loving lady. However this year we want to go with a couple of new choices. First, we have the handmade bangles in either sterling silver or gold filled. Secondly we have the Gina bracelet which is a bracelet meant to wrap around your wrist, made with a soft suede mixed with golden handmade rings to give it the perfect touch of casual chic. Also this piece looks great with the previously mentioned Harper! As for the bangles buy two, three, or even ten! The sky is the limit and you can mix your metals as you please.

We hope these pieces will steer you in the right direction on picking the perfect gift for someone you care about this holiday. We wish you all a happy holiday!

You Don’t Know JO!

What’s in a name you say? Well there is more to this two letter name than what you may think. Jo is the name of one of our top selling pieces here at Liz James and there are a few reasons, other than the fabulous design, that make this piece unique. Not only was the Jo made from the talented mind of designer Jamie Pope in all her creative glory, but it carries sentimental value. The charm that dangles from the end of this hand knotted necklace is an original cross from Jamie’s grandmothers collection. With this piece having that relation to her grandmother we wanted to name it after her, Mama Jo. So we simplified it and decided to call it Jo!

Jo

The Jo is an everyday kind of piece. You can dress her down for your everyday routine, or dress her up for a special night out. However you choose to wear Jo it will compliment your look with its natural tones of champagne pearls and highlights of turquoise and charms. Let’s see how we would wear Jo!
