A Christmas countdown of twelve of the best party jewellery for celebrations in 2021 and 2022

19 December 2021

Although the question of Christmas parties hangs delicately in balance right now, the thought of finding a dinky, jewel-shaped box under the tree with a little something sparkly inside it still sounds infinitely inviting. More so, in fact, given that we’re all in desperate need as much festive cheer as we can muster at the moment. Because diamonds really are forever, the treasures we invest in today will still be as deliciously covetable come New Year’s Day, Chinese New Year and beyond.

This year, be daring and go bold. Whether that’s with the size of your sparklers, their colour and detailing, or in the way you wear it.

For party lovers, a pair of statement earrings never fails to impress and will dress up any outfit, whether that’s a velvet jacket, little black dress or, come next season, a crisp t-shirt and jeans. Classicists will relish the return of the iconic cocktail ring and this year’s over the top iterations all deliver instant glamour, especially when piled on. Delight the fashion fan in your life with something unusual. Think cool combinations of gemstones or contrasting textures (diamonds and enamel, for example) and on-trend ear-climbers. For those who have everything, choose something seriously special. Anything one off, personalised, or bespoke is the perfect place to start.
