Chapelle are great at spotting the trends in jewellery for the upcoming season, but also focus on beautiful, elegant and timeless pieces that will work now and forever, whatever your wardrobe style and taste. The 9ct Dancing Diamonds pendent is just such a piece, and currently at Chapelle you can make a saving of more than 50% off the recommended retail price, making this a not to be missed Christmas bargain.

The necklace comes in a stylish red box which has a touch of retro elegance to it. Again, this means that if this is a gift idea, you could just add a gift bow to the box and it would be ready to gift to someone special.

The pendant itself is delicate and pretty, with a 5pt round diamond set in a moveable setting. This means the necklace really sparkles when it catches the light due to the fluidity of the movement. The pendant is on a trace chain which has a maximum length of 18 inches. It has a bolt ring clasp fastening and sits really prettily on the neck. It would look great with a little black dress, or worn simply with jeans and a v or crew neck jumper.

You can never really go wrong with a gift that sparkles at Christmas, but the diamond is also the birth stone for April, so this could also be a lovely gift for someone with an April birthday, or you could even buy it to keep it as a birthday present.

This necklace is beautiful, sophisticated and has a timeless elegance that means you will be loving and treasuring it for many years to come. Add it to your Christmas list now.

Review: 12 Days of Joy Gift Box

Nothing helps build up more excitement for Christmas like a festive advent calendar. But these days, many of us are ditching the chocolate treats and opting for a more luxurious option. One perfect example is this 12 Days of Joy Calendar, generously given to me by the online bingo experts at paddy power bingo.

The calendar features 12 glamorous pieces of jewellery, it is a truly beautiful surprise sat behind every window, just waiting to be revealed.Forget five gold rings, in this set you’ll get a silver plated necklace and bracelet as well as 10 beautiful and unique charms. Each of them with glamorous crystals from Swarovski.The set is lead and nickel free and is hypoallergenic.

What I like most about this set is that not all of the charms are focused on Christmas, yes most of them are related to the holiday seasons with snowflakes, Christmas tree, and embossed festive text some of the charms but there are charms that can be worn all year round.

I also love that the whole set is completely customisable, meaning that there are no set guidelines on how to dress up your necklace or bracelet – the choice is yours. You can choose to wear as many or as little charms as you like.

My favourite part of this set has to be the sapphire charm. It is the only charm that offers a dramatic pop of colour, yet is still small enough so it doesn’t completely overshadow all of the other pieces.

I’d say my least favourite charm would have to be the Joy, love, peace, believe, Christmas charm. Although the text makes up the whole of the charm, it is still very small and difficult to read, maybe a different phrase would have been better.

Christmas Gift Idea: The Kensington Necklace From Buckley London

When it comes to finding a gift for a wife or girlfriend, mom or sister, daughter or friend, let me tell you, beautiful jewellery is always a good idea. It shows thought and consideration, and, if you pick a stylish, timeless piece rather than a fashion item, it is something that can be worn and cherished forever.

Buckley London is a stylish brand of award winning fashion and costume jewellery  who re well known as the designers of the Royal British Legion Poppy Collection. Buckley’s ranges are always elegant and come in a wonderful gift box that is instantly recognisable and means that the gift inside requires no further gift wrapping, it is ready to present to your loved one.

The Kensington Necklace is a piece that has a vintage feel. It is a mixture of oval and square cut stones set in  a rhodium plated claw setting with a fine belcher chain. The pendant chain length is16″ but it also comes with a  2″ extender, so you can wear it slightly longer. The necklace is part of the Kensington collection, so you can add a a pair of earrings and a friendship style bracelet if you wanted to make this a much bigger present for someone.

I love this necklace. It has a real classic look, the addition of the square stones makes this almost Art Deco in appearance. The stones really sparkle and shine, this would just look so good against a little black dress or black top for a Christmas party, but because it is a refined, subtle design, it would also be a necklace that could be worn every day, looking just as good as a touch of sparkle with your work suit, or worn with simple jeans and a t-shirt.

It is a necklace that would suit all age groups and tastes – it really is a choice you can’t go wrong with. The Kensington Necklace costs £35 and you can find it here.
