Holiday Wishlist: Monica Vinader

Born in Spain, raised in Britain, and educated in America, Monica Vinader brings a truly global perspective to the jewelry she creates. Founded in 2009, the company recently gained the attention of royal watchers when the Duchess of Cambridge stepped out in some of their pieces. Here are five of my favorite jewels from the brand's current collections...

The gorgeous green Siren Cocktail Earrings immediately reminded me of the emeralds that Camilla received on her recent royal tour. These are set with much more affordable green onyx, and they're perfect for the holidays! ($620)

The Duchess of Cambridge recently wore a couple of jewels from the Riva collection; I think the simple Riva Diamond Hoop Pendant, made of pave-set diamonds in gold-plated sterling silver, is a fun way to echo that style. ($265)

The Mini Marie Bracelet is so perfect, marrying delicate design with motifs that hearken back to jewelry from ancient civilizations. ($200)

I love this colorful twist on the eternity band. The Siren Eternity Band sets different gemstones in its fun, organic shape; the blue lapis stones are my favorite choice. ($240)

The Ava Disc Drop Earrings would be such a great addition to anyone's jewelry box, with the classic pave-set discs featuring 0.50 carats of diamonds. Beautiful! ($1555)
