Looking a gift horse in the mouth may turn a party into an etiquette lesson, whereas looking a gift basilisk in the eyes will turn the birthday girl to stone. Give curse-free gifts and goods with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of designer jewelry, gifts, and accessories at Moondance Jewelry Gallery in Santa Monica.
Situated on glitzy Montana Avenue, Moondance Jewelry Gallery purveys original jewelry by more than 40 designers, as well as handbags, watches, and other wearable wares that have graced the pages of InStyle, Allure, and other fashion-forward publications. Don a Me & Ro sterling silver engraved flower pendant necklace ($80) from the gallery’s private design label, or don a pair of La Vie Parisienne crystal and rhinestone earrings ($65) to glitter with the cool sophistication of a distant star or an irradiated aristocrat. The Coffee Parajo foldover clutch ($245) contains ample storage space between its chain-link straps, and friends, spouses, and homesick pandas will appreciate the elegant packaging and clean scents of an Asian grove scented candle by Kobo ($35). Many Moondance products are available in limited quantities, adding to their exclusive allure and ensuring you’ll never show up at a party wearing the same authentic Brazilian wish bracelet ($5) as the host ever again.
