The 2022 Gift Guide: Bestsellers (Jewelry & Books)

The 2022 Gift Guide: Bestsellers (Jewelry & Books)

In our longstanding quest to weave artistic expression into all of the most significant parts of life, we are pairing each of our bestselling necklaces with the perfect book that your recipient (or you) will find little connections, points of depth, meaning and relentless beauty in.

Each pairing is recommended for a certain person as a tight, easy, and highly curated duo, but don’t be afraid to bend the rules. That’s what they’re meant for. Each piece is as gorgeous, meaningful, and timeless as the last, and each book comes recommended by your poet-in-residence, who has yet to steer you wrong.

Shop local or hop on to support bookstores and keep small businesses alive! This time of year, small businesses depend on your support – shop small, shop local, and gift well. Amazon won’t notice or care about you, but each purchase from a small business results in a happy dance, a bit longer in business, and most importantly, it keeps art alive.

Thank you for letting us create and share with you what we are called to do; in this way, you are truly Common Era’s muse.
