Jewellery Style Guide: What to Wear this Christmas

November 29, 2023

With the Christmas period fast approaching and all of the gatherings, events, parties and occasions that come with it, we wanted to share some tips, advice and guidance when it comes to picking the perfect jewellery to wear over the Christmas period

Whether you plan on spending the big day in your PJs or are excited about showing off your new jewellery pieces at this year’s New Year’s Eve party, choosing the right jewellery for every Christmas occasion will help you look and feel your festive self.

Winter styles that stand out from the crowd

Although Christmas styles probably bring bright and bold colours to mind, the best way to bring out the true beauty in your jewellery pieces is to pair them with darker clothing. 

There’s no better way to make statement silver and gold jewellery pieces stand out than wearing them alongside black, navy and burgundy colours to create an exceptional contrast. 

Silver jewellery pieces tend to work better with lighter colours like white, cream, tan or beige, while gold jewellery pairs really well with dark reds, greens and purples.

Depending on the occasion and your personal style and preferences, lighter, more simple and elegant pieces may be better whereas bigger and bolder pieces can work well too. 

What to wear to your Christmas work do

For a lot of people, finding the right balance of sophistication and fun when it comes to picking the perfect jewellery for your work Christmas party can be a challenge.

Whether in the office or a local venue, most people will probably want to wear something casual or smart casual, jewellery can be a fantastic way to add an extra edge.

Wearing something subtle and delicate can be a great way to show off your favourite pieces without feeling like you’re going over the top. 

A pair of beautiful stud or hoop earrings and layered pendant necklaces will help bring your outfit to life and celebrate the special occasion in style.

Christmas Party

The perfect jewellery for New Year’s Eve

Some say that the New Year’s Eve party is the biggest event of the year, and nothing screams celebration like a night out on the most popular night of the year. 

Donning your best outfit and being as bold as possible is a must and having the right statement pieces of jewellery will help your outfit stand out from the crowd. 

For a truly unforgettable New Year’s Eve outfit, pair a dark-coloured, floor-length dress with a minimalistic and elegant silver necklace and a pair of earrings to really shine.

Beware of your Christmas knit-wear!

Although it may be incredibly tempting at times, pairing beautiful chandelier earrings, thin bracelets or intricate necklaces with your favourite knitted jumpers can cause a headache.

These types of jewellery pieces very easily get tangled and caught up in your woolly winter wardrobe and easily break or cause damage to your favourite pieces.

A little festive jewellery inspiration

Personally, we could spend hours upon hours browsing and searching for our Christmas favourite jewellery pieces, here are a few of our favourites for a little inspiration. 

This beautifully intricate Mother of Pearl four leaf clover necklace is timelessly elegant and simplistic in its style and design, and has other matching pieces of jewellery to go with it.

This stunning and ideal cut lab grown diamond has been set in our simple four claw solitaire ring, putting the diamond at the heart of the piece and truly showcasing its beauty.

My lovely eternity ring,given to me by my mother holds great sentimental value for me.
The spinnels were old and damaged so I decided to have the ring altered with diamonds replacing the spinnels.
Piers,a jeweller at Charles Nobel Jewellers,New Milton,inserted the diamonds with great care and expertise.
He has transformed my ring and I can thoroughly recommend him and his father,Charles.
Their service,knowledge and craftsmanship are excellent.
