Give her the gift of perfect jewellery this festive season...
The holidays are almost upon us, so it’s time to get organised. Our buyers are helping you treat the special ladies in your life (including yourself!) to a flight of festive fancy, with a curated edit of the perfect jewellery gifts for her.
Buying the perfect jewellery gift can often feel a bit like jumping through hoops - ones that you’ll thankfully find right here in our earrings edit. Go oversized with Alison Lou and Dinosaur Designs, or show appreciation for a mini hoop with some help from All Blues, a jewellery label that’s as stylish as it is sustainable. If it’s pearls you’re after, then Danish favourites Sophie Billie Brahe and Anni Lu have the answers to your prayers.
Looking for something small and subtle to display your affection? How about a dusting of diamonds from Dana Rebecca Designs? Meanwhile Alison Lou’s pill-shaped stud is the perfect medicine for gift shopping fatigue. Spread the love with Loquet’s precious sapphire heart, and if you’re feeling really generous, get the Suzanne Kalan diamonds and sapphires to mix and match. You’ll be green with envy if you don’t get a pair of AYM for yourself as well.
She’s no wallflower, so statement earrings are an obvious choice. If she’s into bold hues, then get acquainted with the handmade pieces from Anton Heunis, whose modern vintage aesthetic is irresistible, and conscious heroine Holly Ryan. For those that think more is more, Paco Rabanne’s chandeliers and the Versace Medusas will add the right kind of drama to proceedings. Looking to play it cool? Ashley Williams has the answer.
Wish List-Worthy Watches
Our edit of fine watches will ensure you’re never late to the gifting game. Give the gift of retro charm with Gucci’s latest Grip style, or go for a reworked heirloom courtesy of Lizzy Mandler Fine Jewelry, whose restored Rolexes can be engraved with initials for a more personal touch. Clock on to some statement-making pieces with Jacquie Aiche’s unique chill factor, Fiona Kruger’s skull face or La Californienne’s diamond-encrusted night sky.
The wrist list on her wish list - we’re taking the friendship bracelet to new heights with these bracelets. LA label Shay offers a contemporary classic in the form of chunky 18K gold embellished with diamonds, or opt for something more subtle with Suzanne Kalan’s delicate white gold style. Brighten their ensembles via a Gigi Clozeau pop of colour, and conjure memories of the beach with Tohum’s shell styles. Lastly, for girls who love pearls, AYM is the ideal.
When you’re shopping for a minimalist, aforementioned Holly Ryan’s pearl choker is a simple yet elegant nod to the trend. Her new best diamond friend can be found in Shay’s sophisticated diamond piece which offers endless styling opportunities - all the more reason to wear everywhere. If she likes to be the centre of attention, the standout options from the Alessandra Rich and Area runways will ensure that all eyes are always on them.
One can never go wrong with a beautiful necklace, and we have a delectable selection to choose from. Sate their appetite for diamonds with delicate handmade styles from Lizzy Mandler Fine Jewelry, Suzanne Kalan's signature firework design, and Oprah’s favourite jeweller Dana Rebecca Designs. Show them they’re a ray of sunshine by giving the gift of Jacquie Aiche, or emphasize your infinite love with Alighieri. When she’s striving for that light-bulb moment, Ambush will bring her one step closer to her goal.
If a ring is at the top of their list (and we don’t mean on the phone) then keep reading. Fendi’s winged style will remind that special someone that they’re truly an angel, whilst Mateo and Spinelli Kilcollin send the message that your recipient is a true diamond. A member of the Gucci gang will appreciate this textured piece adorned with the house’s distinctive interlocking Gs; meanwhile make waves by gifting this Apples & Figs style, embellished with sea foam charms. Our only question now is why you need to choose just one? The beauty of having ten fingers is being able to wear all your favourites at once...
