Christmas is coming and so I am continuing with some lovely gift ideas for the ladies or the men in your life.
It has to be said that some people are very easy to buy for, but others can cause you to feel like pulling your hair out, so I am hoping these guides will provide a little welcome inspiration, and also hopefully point you in the direction of some new brands and designers in order to extend your gift choices.
Jana Reinhardt Polar Bear Necklace
There are just some animals that are more associated with Winter. Penguins come to mind, as do snow leopards and Arctic foxes, but for me, the animal I most associate with Winter is the Polar Bear. Which is why I think the exquisite polar bear necklace from Jana Reinhardt is such a stunning and perfect gift idea for a jewellery lover.
The pendent is handmade in the UK from solid silver, although it also comes in a gold and rose gold finish as sterling silver vermeil. The bear is solid and just lovely, it would certainly appeal to all ages, and with a chain that can not only be embellished with a white sapphire moon and star, but can also be extended from 16 to 18 inches, this makes the gift very versatile.
This necklace would look great with your little black dress, but would be just as nice with simple jeans and a t-shirt. It is eye catching enough to gain attention, but not too ostentatious that you couldn’t wear it every day.
Beautifully gift boxed, this is the perfect gift idea for animal lovers, winter lovers and jewellery lovers alike.
