When it comes to festive bijoux, pretty much anything goes. Conversation starters—like an extravagant bracelet or a charming headband—can elevate any outfit. Just be sure to take cues from Jessica Biel, Camilla Belle, and for a merry and bright outcome.
A bold cocktail ring needs no accompaniment. Take a cue from Camilla Belle at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts Gala last month wearing Van Cleef & Arpels' Lotus Between The Finger Ring ($32,600), and skip the bracelets and any additional rings that would compete.

An edgy ear cuff is a non-traditional twist on your everyday studs, and can either be subtle or statement making. Let your ornamentation steal the show by styling your hair behind your ears a la Rita Ora or pulling it back into a sleek updo.

If you don’t want to shine bright like a diamond this holiday, opt for an architectural bracelet, like Palermo’s vintage gold caged cuff, instead. The structured piece offers an artful contrast to a slinky fringe dress.

The perfect time to play with a crystal-embellished ribbon necklace is when the rest of your look is simple and streamlined. We love the way Caroline Sieber paired her Chanel piece, which is actually a brooch worn as a necklace, with a shiny top for an extra bit of glamour.
