Unique Jewelry Gift Ideas

Sponsored post.

If you’ve been a reader for awhile, you know that I like giving old things new life, particularly by refashioning them. Which is why Howard’s Jewelry Center, a Cleveland area chain, was a good fit for this post. Howard specializes in unique, one-of-a-kind refurbished jewelry, the one-of-a-kind jewelry that would make a great gift for the person on your list who you want to give a little bling.

Howard and the team are GIA-certified, which lets you know that you’re getting genuine, thoroughly graded diamonds. I think when it comes to refashioning fine jewelry, the professionals are the ones to go with. And the folks at Howard’s pride themselves on providing quality jewelry at great prices.

Although I think refurbished jewelry would make an excellent gift because the jewelry was given new life and already has a history, they also have completely new pieces to choose from. Here are just a few of my favorite pieces from the various collections at Howard’s:

As a plus, the halo-style setting (available in all the shops) is a classic style. The collections are titled: Blue Mood, Go Green, Red Hot and Hot Chocolate. Continue reading

I was psyched this year about the gifts that we got for people this year because they were, in my opinion, perfect. Continue reading

Friday Five: Holiday Catch Up

Here’s what is or has happened holiday wise so far:

1. Decorations are up. 

Of course I haven’t taken very many pictures yet. *gasp* But Brad and I decided to dial it back a bit at our house this year and only put up the big tree in the living room. The shorter dining room tree is hanging out in the attic this year.

2. We partied last week.

I was right to be excited for Brad’s work party last weekend. It was yet again a lot of fun.
