The Holidays are my favourite time of year - Sparkling lights, parties, yummy food and of course a time to add conversation starting jewellery to any look.
When dressing for holiday parties a little sparkle goes a long way. Find glamorous pieces to dress up your look for the holidays that can also be worn throughout the rest of the year. 
I like to play around with pairing statement pieces with more casual clothing, so they aren't sitting in a jewellery box for the rest of the year! 

Gemstones are great for holidays as they are naturally beautiful and have a sparkle to them. Labradorite is huge right now as it is stunning with gold settings (often a F/W metal). Quartz shimmers beautifully in different lighting, and pyrites and Hematite will add nice texture to any style or colour of outfit. I love the uniqueness of gemstones, the excitement of finding one that you are really attracted to. However, there is more to gems than their appearance. Each has a different meaning, supporting different parts of the body and mind. Finding stones that draw you in may have deeper effects than you may think! 

This fantastic black Agate geode by Canadian designer BellaFusion caught my eye as a great holiday piece, also to wear for business or dinner. As many of you know, I live in black, therefore the mix of matte gold with the black Agate is just perfect. The properties of Black Agate include; prosperity, victory and courage. It is one of the most powerful stones for healing.  Agate balances body and mind while strengthening at the same time.  
This particular piece is unique with textured tiered chain. The chain can be worn with the two chains at the back and the pendant over a simple neckline at the front. It also works great with a low cut back or key hole (like my dress), you can wear the necklace hanging completely to the back for a little glamour this season.
