Last Minute Christmas Gift IdeasChristmas is coming! Some of the more prepared of us may be relaxing now, safe in the knowledge that they have bought presents for all their loved ones. But for the rest of us it can be a mad rush with December 25th looming ever nearer! Well don’t panic, we are here to help by giving you some gift ideas for that special someone this Christmas. For many of us, buying jewellery as a gift is intimidating and discouraging. Like shoes and clothes, jewellery speaks directly to the individuals personal tastes, some pieces of jewellery are loaded with symbolism making it all the more special to that individual. Something blue? These pretty earrings feature intense royal blue sapphires surrounded by a delicate vintage-style halo of sparkling diamonds. Sapphire is the birthstone for September but these would also be perfect as a wedding gift or as a diverse piece of jewellery perfect for both dazzling everyday wear and for nights out on the town! For centuries, sapphire has been associated with royalty and romance. The association was reinforced in 1981, when Britain’s Prince Charles gave a blue sapphire engagement ring to Lady Diana Spencer. Contrasting rows of sparkling pavé set diamonds and bands of beaded 18ct white gold, this unique dress ring exudes sophisticated glamour. The layered strands of diamonds and 18ct white gold ropes create a contemporary motif that radiates femininity and would work particularly well with a laid back chic look.
This spectacular 18ct rose gold Rubellite & diamond set pendant is guaranteed to wow her when she opens that box on Christmas day. This pendant is reminiscent of the dramatic, Arabic geometric patterns found on the walls of beautiful Moorish palaces and the deep pink hues in the Rubellite work harmoniously together with the rose gold creating a vibrant effect.Emerald is the birthstone of May and as the month falls at the height of spring it’s not surprising that Emeralds are associated with fertility. The alluring Colombian emerald is complemented beautifully by the double halo in this design, its green hues bringing to mind lush foliage. Its art-deco inspired design would work magnificently with an elegant cocktail dress for those glamorous evenings. Buy her something this Christmas as beautiful as she is. The diamond line bracelet is a timeless design thats popularity never seems to wane with changing trends. These classic pieces are also known as Tennis bracelets thanks to professional tennis player Chris Evert’s affinity with them. This 18ct yellow gold diamond line bracelet would be the perfect present for her this Christmas. By Jenifer Rainford Mendez
