Brilliant Earth Looking for more holiday deals? Visit our Guide to Cyber Week to see all the best sales to shop during Black Friday.
With December just around the corner, it’s time to think about holiday gifts — and jewelry should be at the top of your list. While these seasonal sales offer deals on anything and everything, you can save some significant cash this year on jewelry, especially on items that are traditionally pricey like watches, diamond earrings and even engagement or wedding rings.
So if you’re thinking of popping the question, want to get your mom a dainty bracelet or are in the market for that perfect “to me, love me” holiday gift to yourself, these jewelry brands are offering some serious savings with the below Black Friday shopping deals.
Brilliant Earth Feel good about your diamonds when purchasing jewelry from Brillant Earth. The brand prides itself on offering blockchain-enabled diamonds to scale, which means the origins and ownership of each diamond are traceable, promoting conflict-free diamond sourcing.
From top-selling engagement rings to gifts under $250 to fine jewelry, shoppers can find whatever kind of conflict-free diamond gift they’re looking for at Brillant Earth. The brand is kicking off its holiday deals this week where buyers get a surprise gift with a purchase under $1,000. Big spenders are rewarded with an extra-special free gift on purchases over $1,000 through Nov. 29: a pair of diamond stud earrings.
For those looking to splurge and get those free diamond studs as a reward, consider a diamond tennis bracelet — it’s the perfect anniversary present. For a more affordable stocking stuffer, this silver diamond bar bracelet has a diamond or gemstone accent and costs only $150.
