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.

The Jewellery Editor is for sale

Help us make the future bright

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.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform and help us grow our business to the next stage.
