It’s that time of year when the air is brisk, but hearts are warm with talk of love and goodwill.
Nothing makes us happier than giving to others, and it’s no coincidence that these months are some of the cheeriest in our lives. The Razny family loves gifting and receiving thoughtful pieces that reflect the personal style and values of the one who’ll treasure it forever. Inspired by almost 70 years of joy as Chicagoland’s favorite family jeweler, we’ve compiled a list of our most-desired gifts.
This year’s list has something for everyone: the adventurous who love novelty, the fancy philanthropist, and the timeless style of the impeccable lady and gent.
Without further ado, here are the best gifts for women and men in 2019.
Razny Jewelers 2019 Gift Guide
Today is the First Day of the Rest of Your Life
At this magical time of year, ask your love to share with you a lifetime of happiness!
Ring in the Season
Ring in the season with a beautiful “right-hand” ring from our custom or designer selection.
Diamond stud earrings by Razny Jewelers are the perfect touch for ANY occasion. Plus, their one-size-fits-all nature makes them the ideal gift year-round. They are indeed the little black dress of jewelry. Our exclusive collection of diamond studs starts at $340!
Some believe luxury and accessibility are mutually exclusive concepts. Those naysayers have never shopped within our boutiques. We encourage you to think outside of the box with earrings (diamond huggies, no less!) by Shy Creation, priced under $200!
Looking for a big diamond stud look for a fraction of the price? Browse our brilliant collection of bouquet studs. Bouquet studs display the radiance of multiple diamonds as if they’re one single gem. These beauties are a fantastic way to create the look of a more significant diamond, but for an affordable price! We love these bouquet studs by Memoire.
Giving for the Greater Good
What’s better than giving the perfect gift? Giving a gift that also gives to a remarkable cause!
This year, our family was proud to partner with 4Ocean. 4Ocean offers trendy bead bracelets made from recycled materials. Every bracelet purchased funds the removal of one pound of trash from the ocean and coastlines. The brand’s price point is unbelievably accessible ($20 each)! Our entire Razny Jewelers team can’t stop collecting beaded bracelets by 4Ocean!
Alpina, a watchmaker famous for Swiss manufacturing at an affordable price point, is now a supporter of the National Park Foundation. That means a portion of their profit goes to supporting NPF’s efforts to protect and enhance America’s rivers and trails.
You may know Breitling for its commitment to aviation, but did you know that the timepiece maker also has a surfer’s squad? This team of elite professional surfers leads the helm of Breitling’s new partnership with conservation group Ocean Conservancy. In May of this year, a limited-edition Superocean Heritage Ocean Conservancy timepiece was released to mark this commitment. To celebrate the launch of this chronograph, which is limited to 1000 pieces, Breitling organized a monumental beach cleanup. We’re proud to support a watchmaker that’s supporting our future!
The people in your life are one-of-a-kind, and the gift they receive should reflect their uniqueness. We love this right-hand ring by CrownRing, perfect for dad, that can be personalized to display his name, initials, or a private message on the inside.
Introduce your loved ones to jewelry stacking with a delicate gold necklace from Razny Jewelers, with their name or a particular date engraved along its bar. It looks great worn with another equally delicate chain (or two!)
Newlyweds love to showcase their union. Give the gift of a monogrammed necklace by Sloane Street to your new bride or fiancée!
Since the 1940s, our family has made it our mission to elevate the industry’s standard for design and presentation through custom creations and partnerships with brands that share our passion for meticulous artisanship.

Like us, Kwiat is a brand built on family. Founded in 1907 by patriarch Sam Kwiat, exquisite diamond jewelry is their legacy. Each stone is hand-selected, each detail carved meticulously. Discover the ASHOKA® Collection, exclusively by Kwiat. A trademarked diamond cut that is as distinctive as it is beautiful, the ASHOKA cut features a unique arrangement of 62 facets. This rare quality creates a dazzling prismatic effect, giving the diamond a fiery brilliance.
For almost two decades, Marco Bicego has incorporated the traditions and virtues passed down from his father to create jewelry that embodies the luxury of Italian craftsmanship and contemporary design. Every piece is handcrafted in his Trissino headquarters in the Veneto region of Northern Italy. Embrace la bella vita with gold pieces that boast an international charm!
Renowned designer Penny Preville finds inspiration in vintage jewelry. Stars, moons, flowers, feathers, and garlands are among the motifs that highlight her necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and rings. "Diamonds are the fairytale stone," says Penny.
Some have a knack for aesthetics. They don’t follow trends. They set them. For those who are always on the edge of style, nothing will due but a piece that is equally edge and sophistication.
Not one red carpet moment has passed this year without mention of Messika. The Parisian jewelry house was recently introduced to the Midwest by Razny Jewelers and has become a favorite among our clients ever since. It is young and daring in a chic way.
We love stacking the glamourous pieces of Shay, synonymous with modern allure and worldly elegance. Each piece tells its own captivating story.
Every corner of our lives should be filled with inspiring beauty. Committed to uncompromising standards of excellence and innovation, St. Dupont, new to Razny Jewelers, created boundary bending lighters — yes, lighters! — so beautiful you’ll want yours framed. Shop St. Dupont for the girl or guy that has it all, but deserves a little more!
