Holiday gift ideas for her: jewelry under $10000

Original jewelry gift ideas from independent American designers for under $10,000.

Irene Neuwirth rose gold one-of-a-kind necklace with green tourmaline, Lightning Ridge opal and diamonds ($9,770).

By Rachel Garrahan in New York

With so much spectacular jewelry on offer from independent American designers this season, our challenge was to narrow down our selection of favorite holiday gift ideas for her under $10,000 to just five. We've gone for full-on romance with jewels that we hope will be worn forever.

Declare your love with this Anahita locket in brushed gold, whose curves are echoed by two perfectly matched lovebirds on a diamond bezel-set chain. For old-fashioned romance, meanwhile, Single Stone's diamond ring is set with an exquisite mix of antique cushion, old mine-cut and old European-cut sparklers in the brand's signature cobblestone design.

At Irene Neuwirth's new store on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, you can lose yourselves in the mesmerizing depths of a Lightning Ridge opal accented by a pale mint green tourmaline and diamonds for a luxurious look that speaks volumes.

And if the woman in your life prefers geometric lines, Deborah Pagani's Talula ring marries the designer's signature angular elegance with the soft pink romance of a rose quartz and tons of diamonds.

Finally, in these days of abbreviated text speak, why not say it with a simple kiss by choosing Eva Fehren's "X" ring in rose gold and pink diamonds. Mission accomplished.

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos with over 5 million views and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.
