Sophie’s Party Edit: Jewels to Dress Up In

There are some occasions when your daily wardrobe of layered chains and huggies just won’t cut it, and Christmas is one of them. If there’s ever a time to add a little oomph to your accessories, it’s the festive season. Your velvet and sequins will thank you if you add some generously sized coloured gemstone earrings into the mix, and there’s a reason why a cocktail ring has endured as the quintessential party jewel.

While bigger isn’t always better – you don’t want to be weighed down when you hit the dance floor – having several party-ready pieces in your jewellery box will ensure you are prepared for the upcoming festivities, and for future celebrations to come. And while wearing multiple statement pieces at the same time might be a bit much for every day, for Christmas, it’s obligatory.

Work downwards, dressing your ears first. If you’ve opted for a monochrome outfit, reach for the coloured gemstones – our pink tourmaline and purple amethyst cocktail earrings are designed for evening fun. Already going for maximum impact with your party attire? Our Diamond Huggie Hoops, paired with White Topaz Drops, will add some shimmer to your look without overpowering it.

 A bare neckline is crying out for some diamonds – fill yours with our new Tennis Necklace, one of those forever pieces that will quickly become your go-to evening wear. If you’re feeling in a matchy-matchy mood, add the SB Tennis Bracelet for twice the sparkle.

Load up your wrists with bracelets – the more the merrier – and finish your look with a generously sized ring. Something bold from our collection of One-Of-A-Kind rings will do nicely – a purple spinel or a racing green tsavorite – or a retro-inspired bombé cocktail ring showcasing a uniquely shaped green garnet, cut by the gemstone wizard that is Top Notch Faceting.

If after reading this you’re feeling suitably festive, it’s our duty to remind you that throughout the month of December, the pieces in our Party Edit are suitable for just about every occasion, from a night in at home with friends, backdropped by the twinkling lights of a Christmas tree, to dinner à deux at your favourite restaurant. And if you’re hoping to unwrap any of these jewels come 25th December, rejoice in the fact that the biggest party of the year is just around the corner.
