Holiday: Sorrelli Girl

The ladies of my extended family have been gifting and receiving Sorrelli jewelry for at least ten years. “Sorrelli” is derived from the Italian word for “sister” (the company is truly a fun family affair!) which originally sparked my mom’s interest in the company. Oh yeah and all the colorful jewels too. All of their pieces make fantastic gifts, and I love how the name says something special about your relationship between the gifter and giftee:

“I love you. You are (like) family. Here’s something sparkly and beautiful just like you.”
.
To further show how much I adore Sorrelli, and really how meaningful this company has been to my family, here’s my collection of Sorrelli jewels…all gifted to me by family and friends like sisters for Christmases, graduations, birthdays, proms. (Ok, and maybe some of them were borrowed from my mom’s jewelry stash too…shhh!) If my mom, aunts, cousins and I all combined our Sorrelli pieces together, I swear we could open a whole shop.

Below are some of my Sorrelli holiday picks, including pieces from their funky new Mimi line. Each of these would perfectly accompany any holiday party outfit, don’t you think? Although you can find Sorrelli jewelry at many department stores, I’m dying to visit their flagship store in Kutztown, PA!

Does your family have a gifting tradition like our Sorrelli one? I’m curious to hear!

    Ooh, very pretty! I love that your family carries on this tradition — that’s what the holidays are all about.

    We have quite a few gift-giving traditions, too — including a “Secret Santa” for all the women in our family. My little sister and I were included last year for the first time — a huge deal signifying we’d finally “come of age.” We draw names and get cute, quirky things for each other. I had fun choosing this year’s batch!

    Thanks for showing off your collection of sparkle, Nikki! We’ve featured your post on our “blog love” page on the website this afternoon. Hope to see you in Kutztown whenever you decide on that road trip to the Sorrelli store! Oh, and Lisanne, the Kutztown store is open from 11-6 on Sundays (regular Sunday hours, 12-5, resume after Christmas)!

    I get sorrelli to match all my homecoming, beau, and prom dresses (actually buy dress to match the sorrelli I want). I get a piece from my mom and boyfriend every Christmas and Birthday, and sometimes just because! I love my sorrelli!
