‘YULE’ BE DAZZLED! OUR GUIDE TO FESTIVE JEWELLERY

Gemstone Jewellery

Are you stuck for ideas of what gems to wear for your Christmas party? Or maybe you’re looking for a festive gift for a friend and you’re not sure what to pick? Here’s our festive jewellery guide for this season...

Red Gemstones

Red gemstones, like Ruby and Garnet, are linked to Christmas due to their vibrant hues that resemble the festive colours. Symbolising warmth and passion, red gems evoke the holiday spirit, mirroring the reds of holly berries and Santa’s suit. The rich, deep tones of these stones add a touch of luxury and elegance to holiday jewellery, making them popular choices for celebrating the warmth and merriment of Christmas.

Green Gemstones

Mirroring the lush tones of evergreen trees and festive foliage, green gemstones are synonymous with Christmas. Reflecting renewal and life, these gems embody the spirit of nature’s rebirth during the winter season. Plus, their connection to Christmas traditions (like decorating trees) enhances their festive appeal. So, if you’re looking to don your greenery and get festive, it’s the likes of Emerald and Peridot you should be looking out for!

Diamonds

Blue Diamonds

Need we say more? Although not directly associated with Christmas, Diamonds are a timeless classic and resemble enduring love and celebration. If you love the sparkle of the season, the dazzling brilliance of Diamond only adds more magic to festive moments. They are the perfect gift, and they capture the essence of everlasting beauty, making them a meaningful token of holiday sentiment.

Gold

“On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me...five golden rings...”

Gold is often linked to Christmas from being one of the gifts given to Jesus at his birth and also gaining significance from the classic carol ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’. Gold is now a festive symbol, known for its association with warmth, wealth and celebration. It has both historical and religious significance and the colour’s timeless elegance makes it a staple in Christmas decorations.

Turquoise

Believe it or not, Turquoise is an alternative birthstone for December. Its serene blue hues symbolise the sky and heaven, resonating with the liturgical colour of Advent. Beyond aesthetics, Turquoise embodies values crucial to the holiday season – peace, harmony, and trust. So, if you’re looking for something just a little bit different, this could be the stone for you!

TANZANITE

Tanzanite

Found in just one location on Earth, Tanzanite is something of a miracle in its own right. It's gained a huge amount of popularity since its discovery in 1967, and its rarity and eccentric violet-blue hue have captured the heart of collectors around the world.

Tanzanite sits alongside Turquoise and Zircon as the birthstone for December, but this fascinating natural wonder deserves to be worn and adored all year round.
