Cynthia Ann Heart Necklace
The Antique English padlock was typically worn on a bracelet and given to a loved one to show how much they were loved. Before going off to war, gentlemen would leave the bracelet locked around his loved one’s wrist and he would hold the key until his return. The heart shaped padlock was fashionable in the Victorian and Edwardian periods.
We chose it as this year’s top gift because of the rich history and uniqueness. Cynthia Ann travels across the globe to places such as the United Kingdom and Russia to find her one-of-a-kind medals. Cynthia Ann Jewels is one of our favorite designer brands, and her collection is sold exclusively at G. Thrapp Jewelers.
Michele Watch Serein Diamond Two Tone Gold, Two Tone Bracelet
One hundred glittering diamonds encircle this elegant timepiece. Roman numerals and the signature MICHELE logo grace the chronograph dial. The 18K yellow gold-plated and stainless steel bracelet is interchangeable with any 18mm MICHELE strap.
We chose Michele watches as a gift pick because they are stunning with a variety of looks. The wearer is able to sport it with a nice pair of designer jeans or transform the look into cocktail attire, pairing it with other gorgeous stacked bracelets.
Samantha Louise Layering Chain
18KY, Signature Long Chain with Halos & Dots, 36” by Samantha Louise
We chose Samantha Louise’s Long Chain as a top gift pick because of its wear ability. You can double the chain for a short look or wear it long! We love to add different pendants by Cynthia Ann or David Yurman to this chain to create a cool, trendy look. Another reason we chose to include this beautiful chain in our holiday gift picks is because Samantha Louise is originally from Indianapolis, and we love supporting her as a local designer.

Nina Nguyen’s Gold Tone White Druzy Red Leather Bracelet
We chose Nina Nguyen’s Druzy Leather Bracelets as a top gift for three reasons: great price point, stack ability, and the story behind her jewelry. Nina’s jewelry starts at $200 so it is one of our lowest price point collections. We love how easy it is to incorporate these bracelets into a stacked bracelet or arm party look. Lastly, we selected her collection because each piece is carefully designed by Nina in her Colorado studio and expertly handcrafted by skilled artisans in Nina Nguyen Designs’ very own Women’s Co-Operative, Nina Nguyen Studio.The women employed at our Co-Op are given professional training both for their work and also in life skills.
