The Owl & The Pussycat Christmas Gift Guide - Sparkle & Shine: Jewellery
Christmas is definitely the time to sparkle & shine - which inspired us to bring you our Jewellery Gift Guide! We are incredibly proud to stock some incredible artisan jewellery brands and local artists making the jewellery pieces we sell online truly unique and inspiring.
Jewellery gifts are timeless and classic - most special occasions in life can be remembered looking at a special watch, ring, bracelet or necklace. And what can be better than spotting a little box neatly wrapped and placed under the Christmas tree, only to open it up and embrace the sparkle and shine of a new favourite piece?
Although this was very hard to choose, we picked our top 6 jewellery gifts for women.
We had to start with these beautiful star hoop earrings from My Doris - they are a festive favourite! Mixed metal delicate stars adorn a minimal gold plated hoop. Great for the festive season worn with a snuggly jumper or a cocktail dress, and a perfect gift for someone you love!
All 'My Doris' jewellery is made from nickel free brass with a 24ct gold plate and finished with a special eco-coat to preserve the beautiful look of the piece. Jaipur has been the home of jewellery of making in India for centuries and the 'My Doris' team are committed to working with small scale producers and artisans to help preserve the unique skills of this beautiful city.
We all have stars in our eyes at Christmas - and we found the perfect partner for your star hoop earrings: this gold star print bangle from My Doris! These gorgeous multi star bangles are made in India of high quality brass base and handcrafted enamel. They make the perfect and memorable gift for your loved one - what a joy to find these under the tree and wear for Christmas and New Year!
Now we all love jewellery but we found the last thing we think of is where to keep it! Valued and prized jewellery pieces must be kept safe and away from elements which can stain or tarnish them - we love this Caroline Gardner jewellery box roll which is perfect for storing jewellery, and also travelling (be this to an island far away, or popping down to a rustic cottage for a long weekend!). It has a burgundy velvet casing and three compartments, 2 pots & 1 ring section, with a beautiful suede effect lining and ribbon tie closure. A stunning Christmas gift for ladies!
We love a little boho vibes here at The O&P, and these gorgeous semi-precious stone cocktail rings are the perfect gift for any woman. Available in assorted colours to reflect their personality, or possibly even mood, these rings are from Turkey and are handcrafted on the outskirts of Istanbul by a small family firm who have worked in the same workshop for over 3 generations.
All the rings are made from nickel free brass with a 22ct gold plate and finished with various semi-precious stones such as quartz, freshwater pearls, amethyst and howlite - all you have to do is pick their favourite colour, don't even worry about trying to figure out their size as these rings will adjust!
If you truly want to WOW your loved one, then this is the gift to choose - an eye-catching Blue Lapis and Blue Topaz cocktail ring finished in gold vermeil. This is such a beautiful and unique ring - one which will be kept forever and not that we will ever forget 2020, this will definitely be one happy memory to hold on to!
Blue Lapis is a deep-blue metamorphic rock used as a semi-precious stone that has been prized since antiquity for its intense colour, and blue topaz is portrayed as a gem of peace and healing. The gem was also worshipped in old Egypt, where it was said to hold mystical powers given by the sun god Ra. A ring truly fit for a queen!
We wrap up our Sparkle & Shine Jewellery Christmas Gift Guide with these stunning boho style drop pearl earrings from My Doris. Exquisitely handcrafted statement earrings with a glam-boho vibe - perfect for the festive season, worn with dresses or to dress up a jumper and jeans!
Throughout history, pearls have been the gift of love - because of that, tradition has made them the jewel of brides. No other gem conveys more the warmth, depth and eternal quality of love! What a wonderful pearl earring gift to give the one you love this Christmas.
This is the season to give the most precious gifts of all, and we know our jewellery gifts will help you show your love and affection to those special women in your life.
Love, Team O&P
