Festive jewellery for the Christmas season
It’s finally upon us the most enchanting time of year! Loved ones gatherings, the exquisite feeling of hope and joy in the air, presents, sweet clouds of sugar and spice oozing out of neighbours’ homes and some much needed time off. For those of us into design and fashion, this is also a specially exciting time to really dive deep into our creative references and let our inspiration bloom. We’re all given a pass to be a bit more adventurous and venture out of our comfort zones with riskier looks and accessories. After all, it’s the season to be sparkly!
Following the hardship that’s gone over the last few years all over the world, this period feels particularly charged with a renewal of energy. Now more than ever, it’s important to make the most out of every moment and give yourself permission to enjoy the little things. We may be biased but, for us, nothing screams “celebration” more than a new pair of earrings or a shiny pendant.
Jewellery has always been a significant gift. It simply holds so much meaning – especially if we’re talking about bespoke pieces. They eclipse the classification of objects, being true symbols of love, tokens of untold stories, to be handed from one generation to the next. Whether you’re looking to treat yourself or loved ones closest to you, we’re hoping to inspire you with this gathering of unique jewels!
Borrowing inspiration from an ultra Christmassy colour palette: here’s our selection of Green and Red Gemstones to make a statement with this season.
The magnificent flaming-vivid glow from these gems have a somewhat hypnotic effect! No wonder royals have forever coveted them. If you are unafraid of boldness, look no further than a red spinel! Think “Christmas soirée with friends” you might want to look a tad more elegant than usual. The key to achieve this may be in choosing the right accessories to compliment your look. And the right statement necklace is likely just what you need!
While Garnets occur in a splendid range of colours, the green ones tend to be somewhat rarer. But a specially fine variety takes the cake! Known as “tsavorite”, this rare chrome gem is found in the border area between Tanzania and Kenya in East Africa. Its high refractive index and dispersion levels translate into wonderful brilliance! Their alluring pure hues, durability, purity and rarity explain why they are so highly regarded! An incredibly elegant neck piece featuring these unique crystals is the ultimate conversation starter at any party!
For crimson tinted precious stones, alongside the after mentioned spinels, rubies could never be left out of this list. The intense glow of a fine specimen is a sight to behold! An exquisite pair of earrings with an intriguing geometrical design is unmistakably sophisticated and unconventional.
They are often referred to as the stone of luck and happiness, jade’s symbolism goes a long way back. They are regarded as some of the most powerful carriers of energy that aid in physical and emotional healing. Fun fact: they are in fact two separate gems, nephrite and jadeite. To the untrained eye, they might be difficult to distinguish, but this is usually done by experts using sound frequency, or chiming. Exquisitely rich in detail, this lovely jade brooch feels like a celebration in itself!
A reminder of renewal & rebirth, legendary emeralds are the most emblematic of all green gemstones. Regarded as the “jewel of kings”, they are soaked in mystique and symbolism. No jewel could be more “Christmas appropriate” then a timeless emerald and diamond ring.
