Bulgari Serpenti 18ct Pink Gold Diamond-Set Bangle
The sensuous form of the serpent has been a Bulgari icon since the 1960s. It was Elizabeth Taylor who popularised it when, in an “art imitating life” moment, she was photographed wearing her Serpenti watch on the set of Cleopatra. Since then it has embodied a particularly Italian type of opulence that is shot through everything Bulgari does. This bracelet is no exception. Here the serpent’s scales have been turned into an elegant bangle, made even more decadent by the alternate diamond settings. It’s classic but without being boring; rather like Ms Taylor herself.
Since taking over the creative director’s chair at Gucci Alessandro Michele has done no wrong. His revamp ditched the overt sexiness of his predecessors in favour of something romantic but fun. Luckily, he’s worked the same magic on the watches. Horsebits and bamboo bezels are out and in its place there’s the likes of this fabulous G-Frame. The dial is in the House colours, while the gold PVD case and mesh bracelet adds a touch of Studio 54 decadence to what is, in essence, a very simple design. It’s perfect for anyone who likes their accessories to be feminine but most definitely not girly.
Berry’s White Gold and Moonstone Earrings
The vogue for dramatic earrings shows no signs of abating. Any designer worth their fashion-week slot sent models down the runway sporting everything from hoops so large you could hula with them to tassels that might have been stolen from the hotel curtains. These beautiful white-gold and moonstone creations tap perfectly into the trend but in a more wearable way. It is de rigeur to mix your diamonds into your day wear at the moment and these would certainly add drama to a simple white shirt and jeans combination. Or team with an LBD for after-dark sophistication.
Messika Move Addiction Pave Necklace
Messika was created by Valerie, daughter of famed Parisian diamond dealer Andre Messika, with the sole intention of making diamond jewellery more appealing to a younger generation – more leather jacket and jeans than white blouse and pencil skirt. This necklace from the Move collection – with its moving stones gliding up and down an oblong cut out – embodies this ethos perfectly. It’s fun, flirty and very French. Which might describe that special someone in your life too.
Cartier Ballon Bleu de Cartier
A Cartier icon and the preferred timepiece of one Duchess of Cambridge, the Ballon Bleu is a poster girl for refined, intelligent female watch design. Its protected oversized crown with its sapphire cabochon and “almost too big for the dial” Roman numerals are synonymous with a style that toys with the notions of masculine and feminine. That said there is little that is masculine about this diamond-set, full gold version. It is unabashedly aimed at a woman, though, by adding the automatic movement, it is a watch with brains as well as beauty.
Marco Bicego Marrakech Supreme 18ct White Gold Ring
Made using the signature Marco Bicego Corda Di Chitarra technique – which involves hand twisting thin strands of gold to create something resembling grosgrain ribbon – this is a modern, almost minimalist, take on a cocktail ring. The intricately undulating double strands allow the light to play off its surface proving that you don’t need to default to large stones when making a statement. It’s understated enough to wear every day but not so much of a downplay as to go unnoticed.
Kiki McDonough Classic 18ct gold and Blue Topaz Earrings
If standout stones are her thing, then Kiki McDonough should already be on her Christmas list (and yours). McDonough, who has 30 worth years of jewellery design expertise under her belt, has made a name for herself with the exceptional quality of the stones she selects and for the inventive ways she sets and combines them. These beautiful blue topazes will add sparkle to any outfit. And, indeed, to anyone’s Christmas.
Berry’s Cabochon Amethyst Pendant
A beautiful pendant can immediately transform the most plain of outfits into something altogether more fabulous, which is exactly what this gorgeous amethyst was designed to do. The white gold chain and setting allow the stone to take centre stage, while the diamonds add a subtle sparkle. Given that ancient civilisations thought amethyst was a symbol of royalty, this necklace will be the ideal gift for the queen of your heart.
