Silver Jewellery Stocking Fillers

From: 13th December 2022

One of my favourite parts of Christmas is Christmas Eve, all cosy around the fire with a Christmas film on the TV – usually has to be Love Actually but Elf and Jingle All the Way are also popular choices! Then once it’s time for bed getting those stocking hung up. It was always a wondrous time when my boys were little – the excitement of putting out the stockings together with mince pies and a glass of something nice for Santa. And don’t forget carrots for Rudolph and the team. Well, now my boys are all grown up but they still like a stocking (the same ones they’ve had since they were born) and they do one for us too – the ones I do are filled with little presents which I can collected over the months - some silly, some chocolatey and some a little more thoughtful and special. This year my son’s girlfriend is going to be with us and so I get the chance to create a ‘girls’ stocking which is a new thing for me!

So where does the tradition of hanging stockings come from? Although there are no written records of the origin, the popular legend is that the original Saint Nicholas put gold coins in the stockings of three poor sisters. Their father would not accept charity, so St Nicholas decided to help in secret. One night, the girls left their stockings to dry over the fireplace. Saint Nicholas knew the family was very poor and risked starvation, so he threw three bags of gold coins down the chimney. The money landed in the sisters' stockings, much to their absolute joy on waking in the morning.

This led to the custom of children hanging stockings or putting out shoes, eagerly awaiting gifts from Saint Nicholas. Sometimes the story is told with gold balls instead of bags of gold. That is why three gold balls, are one of the symbols for St. Nicholas.

Finding great gifts for stockings is always difficult so we have tried to make it easy for you and put together a collection of our silver jewellery all priced under £40. We deliver it to you in a free branded gift box too, so it's all ready to pop in their stocking!

Earrings are always a great choice and are an affordable price. All our Cavendish French earrings are handmade from 925 sterling silver, and some are set with the best quality cubic zirconia - so you know you’ll be giving a high quality, gorgeously shiny or sparkly pressie.  (They are also rhodium plated too to prevent tarnishing and scratches) Some of our favourites are our simple silver Ball Earrings which look like Christmas baubles but will be year-round favourites. (Available in a number of sizes) Or what about stars for the little star in your life?  Our Cute Cubic Zirconia Star Studs or Silver and Opalique Star Earrings would be great choices. If you want to go for a festive colour, then our emerald green Stud Earrings are perfect or our emerald Leaf Studs which could be mistaken for sprigs of holly or mistletoe! If you’re looking for mixed metal jewellery, then our cute copper Drop Heart Earrings make a gorgeous little Christmas gift. Handmade and natural metals.

Can you get a silver pendant for under £30?  Yes, you can … and we have several in our Stocking Filler Collection to choose from. We like the Happy Moon Pendant for someone you love ‘to the moon’ and back or for the more traditional gift, our All Hearts Pendant is very cute and still under £40 on a silver chain.

What about a sparkly ring to make her eyes light up!  Our Sweet Sparkly Forget-me Not Ring would make the perfect gift for a loved one. Designed in sterling silver and micro-set with triple AAA graded cubic zirconia it looks far more expensive than it really is.

Head over to our collection and have a look for yourself …. we’re sure that Santa will reward you for lending a helping hand this season and the stocking recipient will be more than happy on Christmas morning!
