GIA Holiday Shopping Guide: Gift ideas for Men

GIA’s 2014 Holiday Shopping Guides are here to help inspire your holiday shopping this season. Today, we discuss how to make the right choice when it comes to buying jewelry for men.


Dressing Up Your Ears

As 2014 starts to gear up for the holiday buying rush, we thought it would be fun to look at how jewelry designers are reinventing earrings. From wonderfully versatile stud earrings to chandelier eaarrings with a bold modern touch, jewelry designers continue to push the envelope on these everyday fashion accessories.


Leaf Motif

Consider the changing beauty of the humble leaf: it is a tender shoot in spring…a lush green canopy in summer…a blaze of reds, yellows, and purples in autumn. Jewelry designers have been captivated by them for centuries, turning Mother Nature’s displays into bejeweled creations.


Where the Wild Things Are

There’s something deliciously sinister in the air, and you can find it haunting books, movies, and even luxury jewelry.

What was popular in 2014 tells part of the tale.  Vampire Academy and Lost in Love (another vampire thriller) hit the big screen. Vampire: Most Wanted made The New York Times best-seller list in March, as did the werewolf thriller, Dark Wolf, in January. Disney topped it off by launching the Maleficient collection – a limited collection of jewelry inspired by the villainess in the eponymous movie. Many of the pieces are in blackened metal and feature dragons and snakes.


Emmy Gemstones: A Color Story

Every year, television’s most important award ceremony, the Emmys, sets the stage for fall and winter fashion. On the red carpet for the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards, celebrities showed off jewelry in an array of soft, feminine-colors, something of  a departure from last year’s bright, bold color.


Pantone Spring 2015 Colors in Gemstones

Some of us have yet to see our first snowfall, and Pantone is already looking ahead to spring. The Pantone Spring 2015 color palette features warm, neutral tones, soft hues, and minimalistic color choices, inspired by floral art, tropical landscapes, and the serene, ethereal delights often found in nature.
