Halo Diamond Stud Earrings in 14K Rose Gold
Somehow nailing the perfect balance between subtle and statement, these halo earrings from Lark & Berry will elevate any jewellery collection. They have a 14k rose gold setting with cultured diamond detailing at 0.35ct.
Alighieri The Other Side of the World Necklace
Just choosing one of the hugely covetable jewellery collection from London-based Aligheri’s collection is no easy feat. Each piece has its own story and will form a staple part of your ever-growing collection. We are particularly fans of The Other Side of the World Necklace that can be mixed, matched and layered up with necklaces of different lengths. It is handcrafted from 24ct plated bronze and has an adjustable chain.
Whether you are chasing winter sun or purchasing optimistically with a future holiday in mind, these sunglasses from Taylor Morris are bang on the latest trends with a tortoiseshell frame and a round design. The brand also offers a range of other celebrity-favourite styles of sun and traditional glasses and has already been fashioned by the likes of David Gandy, Emily Ratajkowski, and Pippa Middleton.
Stellar Ring – 18 Karat Gold Vermeil
Made to be stacked, you can wear this star-engraved ring with just about any other piece from the Stellar79 range as well as any minimalist or intricately detailed design. The celestial embellishment will form the basis of your heaven-sent jewellery look.
The Alkemistry x WOLF High Priestess protection jewellery box
While the Covent Garden-based jewellery label offers an extensive portfolio of stunning pieces, it’s this evil eye-embroidered jewellery box that has caught our eye. Whether you are travelling (a girl can dream) or just looking for an organised way to store your favourite pieces, this box has designated compartments for rings as well as an interior zipped pocket. It is embellished with a vibrant pattern that will stand-out on your dressing table.
Shooting Stars glasses chain
Once reserved simply for children or pensioners, the glasses chain has had a huge rebrand and with the introduction of masks into our lives, has become one of the most sought-after accessories. Talis Chains specialises in the adornments with brightly coloured stones or the addition of freshwater peals as shown here.
E- Alpha Charms
Just in case you forget your name, or as a truly special, personalised gift this Christmas, Harvey Owen has got us covered with diamond-embellished initial charms that are delicately crafted and set on an adjustable chain. They are available in yellow, rose, or white.

Get your seasonal gifting sorted with the help of Makal and this particular gem. The bracelet – named after the Swahili word for good fortune - will become a good luck charm. It is crafted from coloured yarn that has been recycled from plastic bottles and adorned with a gold nugget.
The Dream Island Ring
Laura Galasso’s Dream Island ring offers a statement, costume jewel with antique vibe. It is adorned with palm three, green agate and garnet stones and set on 24k gold plated silver. Each stone acts as a symbol for healing, better love connection, protection, prosperity and for a more harmonious link between your body and mind.
9ct Gold Horseshoe CZ Accent Studs
Following on in the trend of symbolic jewellery, these horseshoe studs bring with the traditional good luck status of the shape but with a contemporary look and starring a stone accent.
Kimai Unity Necklace
Chunky chains seem to never go out of style but for a more pared back take on the trend, Kimai has this statement piece where the chains cumulate in a diamond-embellished link design. It is made from 18k solid recycled gold with lab grown diamonds.
