We’re experiencing end-of-the-year holiday vibes at Ritani HQ. This first week in December has included: Christmas travel planning, a white elephant gift party, snow sightings…and a careful review of what you, our valued Ritani customer, loved to order the most in 2016.
Do you have a collection of go-to jewelry pieces? We thought so. That’s because the best-selling Ritani jewelry of 2016 were tried-and-true staples: pearls, pendants, gold studs and diamond studs. Truth: trendy jewelry does make the heart flutter. But wise gals populate the jewelry box with pieces that never go out of style. After all, jewelry staples are like diamonds. They’re forever. People wear specific pieces again and again because they know they’ll sparkle with perfection— season after season.
So, scroll below for a list of the top 5 most popular jewelry must-haves for every woman’s treasure box. If you’re looking to pick a gift she’ll swoon for, these beauties are it.
5. Power to the Pearl
Pearls were everywhere on the runway during this year’s Fall/Winter Fashion Week; check out these obsession-worthy pearl looks for proof. Build upon the timeless style of your fabulous grandmother’s pearl necklace and add your own chic twist by pairing two of our best-selling pieces—the Freshwater Cultured Pearl Pendant and the most delicate pearl bracelet, our Freshwater Cultured Pearl Chain Bracelet. All types of pearls are versatile—they look great with your everyday boots and jeans, and are a classic, popular choice for your wedding day. You’ll be pretty in pearls for whatever occasion you choose.
4. Arm Party
Ogling over 2016 bracelet and silver bangle styles we discovered this unique over-the-sleeve bangle look. Be it on your arm, or over-the-cuff, sterling silver bracelets were a popular choice this year, and for good reason—they’re easy go-tos for stacking or wearing alone. Display the Pavé Diamond Arrow Open Bangle and Ritani Signature Octagon Double Chain Bracelet together on one arm, or wear them solo, to show off each cuff’s unique sparkle.
3. Gold Studs
Talk about a versatile staple. Gold stud earrings come in various shapes and sizes, the design of each presenting a cool-girl or classic style. Our best-selling geometric Petite Pyramid Stud Earrings are dramatically designed with facets that shine from every angle, but the earring itself is small enough to not upstage your overall look. Select the Love Knot Stud Earrings In 14kt Yellow Gold for a dressy occasion or a weekend getaway; the delicate design offers a chic, put-together appearance.
2. Personalized Pendants
Everything’s in a name. So it’s no wonder why two of our most popular pendants this year were personalized letter pendants. Showcase your special someone’s name with a Diamond Pendant set with pavé diamonds and crafted from 14kt white gold. Celebrate his or her initials in an Initial Pendant in sterling silver, or choose a gold pendant if that reflects their style best. And for your delight: receive a complimentary personalized pendant ($125 value), when you spend $300 or more, sitewide. Learn more here.
1. Diamond Studs
Diamond stud earrings were by far our best sellers in 2016. They’re the all-star, ultimate gift choice. Diamonds go with every outfit under the sun (and moon!) and we offer a variety of stone shapes, backing types, backing metals and carat sizes—plus, the option to build your own. Choose a Round Four-Prong Diamond Stud Earrings, or for more simplicity the Round Three-Prong Martini Diamond Stud Earrings, both in 18kt white gold. Curious?
