I love rare gemstones as much as the next Snob, but even rarer than Alexandrite or Paraiba tourmaline are the pieces that hold sentimental significance to my life and the people in it. That’s why I just had a Chinchar/Maloney necklace (on Chinchar/Maloney for $349) made with my birthstone, as well those of the boy and my hubby. It’s not the most expensive piece of jewelry out there, but it’s worth far more to me than even the largest, most perfectly cut diamond. If you don’t know what to get your loved ones for the holidays, these special keepsakes are just the things!
