Change candy and bath salts for a little bit of bling
I love Christmas stockings but, after all the anticipation in the build-up to Christmas, I do sometimes feel a little underwhelmed when I discover the usual chocolates and the obligatory tangerine. Instead, wouldn’t it be just wonderful to find some bling? If like me, you’d like to change stocking expectations, I invite you to read here my sparkling stocking filler gift guide, all of them under £400-ish.
I’d like to start with a pair of Myla Verde earrings from Freya Rose, (£125) and her Warrioress Medallion necklace (£145), made from genuine Mother of Pearl shell and, as in boasting three layers of 22ct gold vermeil plating on solid sterling silver.
If you’re looking for “Academy Awards night in Hollywood” kind of bling without breaking the bank, this Butterfly Bamboo Bracelet from KVK73 (£390) is totally on point. Made from brass, rhodium-plated and adorned with round, oval and square-cut zirconia stones in purple, green, turquoise, and white, this is a piece that will turn heads around.
Lalique always works. Its timeless designs feel as contemporary now as they did a century ago. Fabulous examples are these…
