Jewelry is often a go-to gift for wives, sisters, girlfriends and any other close female relations. It’s hard to go wrong with jewelry, if you know your recipient’s style. If not, try going for what is topping style charts at the moment. Accessories are a great way to freshen up outfits and we asked a celebrated local jewelry designer, Potomac’s Alexandra Samit of Alexandra Beth Designs, to detail jewelry-giving this season.
Patch: When shopping for the perfect accessory what are some things customers should keep in mind?
Alexandra Samit: A piece of jewelry is often the perfect accessory, accentuating a look by adding a punch of color and a bit of sparkle.
Patch: What looks are on trend this winter season? What are the celebrities wearing?
Samit: Sparkling, shimmering druzies and geodes are really big this season. These stones can be found on earring drops, long pendants, leather wrap bracelets and more.

Patch: What are you gifting this season?
Samit: Bracelets, bracelets and more bracelets! We mix it up to make an arm party, stacking many bracelets together. Little friendship bracelets, druzy stones on braided leather wraps and crystal bars on faceted stones.
