12 Days of Extraordinary Christmas Gifting
Celebrate the most magical season with bubbles, baubles and a good amount of sparkle. Taylor & Hart’s 12 Days of Christmas Gift Guide is here to dazzle and delight throughout this festive season. Whether you’re after something specific, a bit of inspiration or to pad out that wish list, we have a host of brilliant ideas and brilliant diamonds.
1. Love actually
Picking up a close friend or loved one from the airport arrivals gate or train platform evokes a feeling of warmth and anticipation. Inspired by Paddington station in London, the cobblestone pavé, diamond-studded Tessellaire half eternity band is proof that love (actually) is all around. Set in 18ct yellow gold, it boasts filigree inspired by the design of the wrought iron details on the vaulted ceiling of the famed train terminal. The miniaturised essence of Paddington captured in this intricate piece will ensure that every time anyone looks down at their stunning ring, they too can feel that building buzz and excitement. Mind the gap, please.
2. Eyes like sapphires
Another delightfully original Christmas gift idea is a pair of earrings featuring gemstones that perfectly match one’s eye colour. With the help of our dedicated consultants, you can recreate the deep blue, glistening green or warm caramel of their eyes in a piece of jewellery so inherently personalised it’ll make them feel like they’re one in a million.
3. Step into a sparkling Christmas garden
Part of the dreamy Hermione de Paula collab, the Verdant jewellery set is the ideal gift for anyone with green fingers.
4. A party ring like no other
Tinsel-covered tables, lights twinkling everywhere and the smell of mulled wine filling every venue you visit – Christmas party season really is the most wonderful time of the year. With the number of shining sequins and glistening metallics on display, a fabulous cocktail ring is a staple on the festive celebration circuit, and with Taylor & Hart, you can create your very own. Jewel tones dominate the colour palettes for decor and dress codes, so why not emulate that emerald green, rich red and royal purple within a large, eye-catching coloured gemstone?
5. Five golden rings
On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love brought to me… Stack your favourites for a modern take on the classic carol. Gloriously glowing in the twinkling lights of the festive season, the warm radiance of yellow gold is sure to bring oodles of Christmas cheer.
6. Fairytale of bespoke
Create a bespoke fantasy ring in collaboration with our talented designers. Replete with symbolism, memories and treasured in-jokes, let your imagination run wild and devise something so incredibly original and meaningful that lets them know you’ve built your dreams around them.
7. “Sign your name across my heart”
Tell them exactly how you feel with an engraved piece of jewellery. Inscribing a meaningful date, a special quote or a loved one’s initials is one of the most personal gifts one can bestow. Customise a necklace or bracelet with that bespoke message to make it a Christmas they’ll never forget.
8. Tell me about it, stud
A pair of classic two carat diamond stud earrings is a gift that will leave them hopelessly devoted (to you). A failsafe gift if ever there was one, this exquisite pair is the bona fide classic that everyone needs.
9. Dreaming of a black Christmas
Bestow the gift of mystery and allure with a truly unique black diamond. Far from a Nightmare Before Christmas, this spooky black diamond eternity ring is perfect for those who enjoy a walk on the darker side. The platinum setting perfectly offsets the moody design of the stones in a truly elegant way.
10. ‘Tis the damn season for dainty rings
A cluster of diamonds is reminiscent of the glint of fresh snow in the cool winter sun. Our Alba and Daisy styles offer a dainty touch to your jewellery pairings. Stack them or let them sparkle on their own, either way, your fingers will bask in the icy twinkle of these designs.
11. The power of proposing with a loose stone
Making your own jewellery allows for your creativity and artistic flair to flourish, and what better way to start than with the perfect gemstone? A loose diamond is the perfect foundation for that most personalised piece of jewellery. Bestow the gift of Taylor & Hart’s customisation journey – begin with a single stone and let their imagination run wild.
12. It’s a wonderful life
Go beyond the looking glass with colourful gems that can match your outfits as well as your moods. Explore the wonderland of whimsy with our Wonder rings that boast stones in a variety of vibrant hues. From pink diamonds to light blue sapphires, you can pair the jewels with their Cheshire cat smiles in a choice of infinity and half infinity designs.
