Searching for the perfect holiday gift but not sure where to start? Or maybe you’re stuck between two rings and need some advice on which to pick? Who better to help than our own personal staff? From our founder to our merchandising guru, we’ve asked our team for some guidance finding the best gifts for any type of gift-giving.

Name: Alexander
Title: Founder
Gift idea: Round Brilliant Lab-Grown Diamond
Reason: “Purchasing a lab-grown diamond means you’re taking the initiative to be on the right side of history. We understand that you have a choice in the type of diamond you buy and we appreciate and applaud anyone that chooses this ethical alternative.”
Best recipient: Anyone in love. A lab-grown diamond says so much more than ‘I love you’. It also says ‘I love this earth and everyone living on it’. What’s more romantic and deep than that?

Name: Ryan
Title: Founder
Gift idea: 3 Prong Martini Diamond Studs
Reason: “Because guys are famously last minute and they’re ready-to-ship!”
Best recipient: Lab-grown diamond stud earrings are universal — they make the perfect gift for any woman in your life!

Name: Lauren
Title: Marketing Coordinator
Gift idea: Stackable rings
Reason: “A stacking ring is an easy gift that means so much. If I had to pick one specifically, it would probably be our Petite Delicate Halo band in white gold. It has just enough sparkle, but could also easily pair well with a plain band or a completely diamond-studded band.”
Best recipient: This gift is perfect for a girlfriend, best friend, a mother-in-law, or even a sister. Stackable rings are also a great choice if you’re looking for an anniversary gift or a way to commemorate your first Christmas as a married couple!

Name: Erica
Title: Director of Digital Operations
Gift idea: 4 Prong Diamond Studs  
Reason: “Studs are a classic that have a place in every jewelry collection. They’re perfect for any special occasion and the bonus is you won’t have to worry about sizing.”
Best recipient: Family, significant others, bridesmaids – our four-prong studs are the perfect gift for anyone special in your life.

Name: Brandon
Title: Director of Marketing
Gift idea: Venus Band in Yellow Gold
Reason: “I love the profile and simplicity of this ring. I am seeing yellow gold as a huge trend and the simple elegance of this could make any finger a ring finger!”
Best recipient: This is the perfect gift for mom!

Name: Haley 
Title: Marketing Manager
Gift idea: Quiet Beauty Engagement Ring
Reason: “The Quiet Beauty has always been my favorite because it’s a simple, classic engagement ring, but easy to dress up with the matching band.”
Best recipient: Someone with a classic style that wants their stunning lab-grown diamond as the focal point.
