Now that you're deep in the throes of building your holiday wish list (and finalizing your purchases for everyone else), you might be hitting an inevitable wall. The vastness of the internet makes narrowing things down especially tricky because well, there's always the possibility that something you need is just another click or two away. And while jewelry tops the list of high-impact gift ideas, it can be an especially tricky category to tackle. While a beautiful necklace or pair of earrings seems like an easy win because there's no need to know sizes and they're inherently luxe, the pieces you wear every day are also extremely personal in a way the rest of your wardrobe isn't. This can make things stressful for the potential purchaser when trying to settle on what the best jewelry gift might actually be. This is where TZR's editors can offer some advice.
Since the fashion team spends countless hours looking at all sorts of baubles, it only makes sense that a handful of pieces have made their way onto each of our wish lists. Below, find a curated selection of the jewelry myself, along with our Managing Editor Lauren Caruso and Contributing Market Editor Mecca James-Williams are all hoping to add to our collections this holiday season. Some pieces are of-the-moment trends (like a chic signet ring), while others skew simple and classic. No matter who your scouting for, there's a little something here that's sure to please — take our word for it.

"Since both of my ears have a handful of piercings, I love to be playful with the way I stack and style them. These connected hoops are just the thing." — Aemilia Madden, Senior Fashion Editor
"Season after season, Marni makes the best jewelry. I love the modern sophistication on this gold circle hoop, it's a statement but still very simple." — Mecca James Williams, Contributing Market Editor
"Not only does this necklace feel like a cool take on logomania, it's for a good cause. With every purchase, Louis Vuitton will donate $200 to Unicef — get and give back all at once." — AM
"Did I mention I had a thing for baguette diamonds? I have a thing for baguette diamonds." — LC

"Esqueleto is my favorite jewelry store in Oakland, where I grew up and my mom always buys my combined birthday-Christmas gift there (I was born on the 26th). The store has an awesome collection of contemporary brands, but the vintage jewelry is so good too." — AM
