Get in the pink this holiday with just a click of your mouse using our vintage jewelry gift guide. Here is our pick of the finest pastel to purple gems from luxury jewelry stores that will give you and your beloved a little history and a lot of glamour.

For a hint of pink, look no further than Simon Teakle for Moda Operandi's vintage Van Cleef & Arpels earrings ($5,800). The flattering blush-pink of rose quartz is given a strikingly modern look with elegant gold tentacles wrapping themselves around the stones.

The rose pink tourmaline of Doyle & Doyle's Edwardian ring ($5,200) speaks of true romance and is framed by an equally delicate strip of black enamel and diamonds.

Broken English's vintage cocktail ring, meanwhile, is perfect for the party queen ($7,600). It also uses black enamel, in this case to embolden its honeycomb setting of rich pink rubies and diamonds.

Evoking vacations in distant climes, the vibrant coral of Fred Leighton's Etruscan Revival earrings ($7,800) will take your mind off the winter season, while Latest Revival's deep purple-pink ruby estate earrings are ideal for a glamorous cocktail soiree, whatever the season.

Finally, for the perfect vintage jewelry keepsake, look no further than the Victorian bracelet offered by Macklowe Gallery on 1stdibs ($7,500). A deep crimson-purple amethyst, pearls and diamonds are set in a locket designed to house a memento of your beloved.
