Posted on December 08 2020
It's easy to shop small business with Seattle ethical jewelry brand, Astor + Orion
I know this year has been a doozy and we are all stretched a little thin but now more than ever it's important to show your loved ones they matter.
I put together this little gift guide to make EASY for you to cross some things off your to-do list while shopping locally and ethically.
From now until the end of December we are offering free gift wrapping on all orders.
We use eco-friendly, winter themed wrapping paper that is appropriate for any holiday celebration. The bows can be green, red, or tan. Take your pick and write "wrap it" + your color in the order notes page at check out.
Without further ado, here's my top 4 gift picks designed to fit within any budget.
Gifts Under $40
I have seen so many of our customers send these as gifts to their best friends and I think they make the sweetest gift around. These are the perfect earrings for the low key dresser who wants to add a touch of style to her look.
Eyes symbolize intention or focus and have been used as a protective talisman for millennia. Timely, no?
Gifts Under $50
Never heard of a threader earring? These are an amazingly comfortable and fashionable way to elevate your look. You simply thread the chain through your piercing. The heart can be pulled tight against your lobe or hung with about half of the chain in front and half in back. This style is perfect for the young or the young at heart on your list. What better way to say you "heart" someone than with these sweet earrings?
Gifts Under $75
Love our eye stud earrings but looking for a more substantial gift? You can't go wrong with this charm necklace. It's dainty enough that it can be an everyday necklace that never gets taken off. Considering the eye is an ancient symbol for protection, that may not be a bad thing. Wear it as a single charm necklace or layer it up with a few more necklaces for a more dramatic look.
Gifts Under $150
Our best selling item. With all of the craziness of this year, who would imagine that this classic good luck charm would be so popular? The sculpting and level of detail on this design is sophisticated and has gotten rave reviews from our customers of all ages. It's hard to see how anyone would be disappointed with receiving this stunning charm necklace as a gift.

And while I have your attention, I wanted to mention a few other holiday related things:
- My last ship date is December 18th, 2020. I'm closing things down early this year because frankly my kids need my attention. Running a small business with two little ones in online school has not been easy for any of us, so we are going to find a nice empty hill in the mountains and go sledding!
- I'm extending the return window for our December orders until Jan 31st. This way you can shop for gifts and if the receiver would rather get something else, they can have plenty of extra time to do a hassle free exchange.
- Of course, a full refund is always available. Please note, the funds just need to go back to the original form of payment. My hands are tied on that one. It's just the way the technology works.
If you have any questions or comments please feel free to reach out and tell me what’s on your mind!
Wishing you all the best,
Owner, Astor + Orion
