With the holiday season closing in, most people are starting to look for the best gifts for everyone on their lists. If you’re celebrating Hanukkah this year, there are plenty of gifts to get, whether you’re trading gifts by light of a menorah or choosing a less formal celebration.
Not to mention the possibility of work gift exchanges and other parties as we head into the busy holiday season!
Of course, having a little extra help choosing the perfect gifts doesn’t make the gifts themselves any less valuable or beautiful. If you’re looking for natural stone jewelry to give your loved one this year, I have a wide selection available.
This gift guide is Hanukkah themed, but there are plenty of other ways to find the perfect handmade jewelry gift if you’re shopping for one. You can also shop by birthstone if you’re looking for something a little more personal to the recipient - or by color if you want to get someone their favorite color jewelry this year.
Top-Quality Natural Stone Jewelry Hanukkah Gifts
Montana Blue Necklace - Fire Polished Czech Glass
Most of my jewelry features natural stones, polished and cut to shape to show off the best of their color and variations. However, every once in a while I find something else wonderful to add to my jewelry collections, and that’s exactly what happened with this Montana Blue Czech glass.
This Montana Blue glass necklace is a wonderful addition to any jewelry collection. It’s an effortless look, beautiful on its own, and sure to highlight any outfit.
The pale blue of this necklace is a perfect Hanukkah gift, on its own, or paired with a matching set of earrings or a bracelet later in the holiday!
Apatite Solitaires Necklace and Earring Set
Apatite is a gorgeous stone in almost any shape. It almost looks like dark ice, filled with cracks where just a little more light shines through. It’s a little mysterious, always intriguing, and a perfect stone for anyone who loves the color blue or indigo.
My Apatite Solitaires Necklace and Earring set really lets these stones stand out beautifully on their own. Rather than overwhelming the natural beauty of the stones, this set lets them each show off their unique patterns and colors.
This set is a gorgeous addition to any Hanukkah gifting, and can be given together as a single gift, or separated to give on more than one night of the holiday.
Sapphire Columns Earrings - Fire Polished Czech Glass
My blue Sapphires Columns Earrings, made from blue glass rather than Sapphires, are a perfect complement for the Blue Montana necklace we’ve already discussed.
These dangling earrings are subtle yet eye-catching. Lightweight and casual enough to wear any time, these earrings are a good option for anyone who enjoys wearing earrings.
You can also upgrade them with an optional set of lever-back closures to make these earrings a little more secure to wear with a head covering or wig. Actually, you can upgrade all of my natural stone earrings that way if you want to.
Double Blue Kyanite - Natural Stone Earrings
Another icy, almost glacial, blue stone, Kyanite is a fantastic stone if you want just a little subtle glow from your earrings. The way these stones reflect light is fascinating, and makes even the simplest designs using them stand out.
These doubles Blue Kyanite earrings are a gorgeous Hanukkah gift, perfect to light up any winter’s night.
Lapis Lazuli Stacked Pendulum Earrings
Lapis Lazuli stones have been prized across history, and admired by many different cultures and people. In the Jewish tradition, these stones are thought to symbolize success, thanks to the golden flecks spread throughout the deep blue stones.
Paired with Sterling Silver, these pendulum earrings are a real showstopper. Perfect for wearing on formal occasions, celebrations, and even as part of everyday use.
Want to show someone how important they are this year? Get them a pair of these luxurious Lapis Lazuli Pendulum Earrings for Hanukkah.
Sterling Silver and Aquamarine Nest Earrings
If you’re shopping for someone who prefers stud earrings over longer dangling earrings, these Aquamarine Nests are a fantastic option. Wrapped around with a Sterling Silver Wire, these earrings look just like a bird’s nest with an egg in the center.
These earrings are a fantastic gift for someone just starting to wear earrings, since they are small and lightweight enough to be easy on your ears. I also love this set as a gift for new mothers, since the nest symbolism is a clear reminder of the love and attention from a mother to her child.
Blue Lace Agate Dangling Earrings
Last but not least, are my Blue Lace Agate Earrings.
Agate is one of those stones that comes in many different shapes and sizes, in hundreds or thousands of different colors and patterns. Blue Lace Agate is known for the delicate lacey swirls that sometimes form between the different bands of color.
As delicate as it looks, Agate is a sturdy stone, and the different sized stones in these beautiful earrings only works to highlight the patterns even more.
Bonus! Iridescent Iris Green Czech Fire Polished Glass Bookmark
Technically not jewelry, here’s one more gift idea this Hanukkah. For your resident booklover, getting new books and bookmarks is probably one of the best ways to encourage their hobby and show that you appreciate how much they read and enjoy reading.
These bookmarks are beautiful as well as practical, and much more durable than a more standard cardboard or laminated cardstock bookmark. Plus, the decorative string of Czech Fire Polished glass really helps these bookmarks stand out, and shows how important and well-loved any book wearing this bookmark truly is.
