Christmas, Christmas, Christmas, at the risk of sounding a bit ‘baa humbug’, it all started a bit early for me this year – especially when the radio station I usually listen to at work started playing 100% Christmas songs in November. But… now December is here, I feel the build up to Christmas can really begin. We have been so busy with Black Friday and Christmas sales, it’s lovely to start thinking about the celebrations to come. I am so looking forward to having my 2 sons who are both now away at university, home for a while although that does mean I’ll have to start stocking the fridge and doing some cooking again!
Christmas is all about treating others and ourselves! About being with the people you love and taking some time out to relax (amongst the shopping, wrapping, and cooking!)
But before we even get to the main event, this year Christmas parties are going to be bigger and more sparkling than ever – since we all missed out last year. It will be so good to dress up and have a good old boogie to all those 80s songs! So, since we haven’t had a Christmas party for a while, I think it is the perfect excuse to treat yourself to some new jewellery party sparkle.
You don’t need to spend a fortune to get the look of diamonds and white gold, when our sterling silver and cubic zirconia jewellery looks almost identical but at a price that everyone can afford. We also have wonderful coloured cubic zirconia stones which are so similar to fine gems such as sapphire, emerald and citrine. Our Party Sparkle collection picks out some of our most popular silver jewellery which will have you feeling a million dollars but I have also picked our a few of my real favourites.
Our silver and citrine cubic zirconia Vintage Ring is the ultimate party cocktail ring with a stone that sparkles and catches the light like a true gem. Perfect worn with one of our stunningly simplistic and classic tennis bracelets and of course a beautiful manicure!
For the neckline, and perfect if you have a lower style dress or in fact a high neck as you can wear it over the top. Our silver and cubic zirconia triple strand Retro Necklace is just gorgeous. Pushing the boat out a little bit (well you are worth it..) this elegant and beautifully handmade necklace showcases the AAA* cubic zirconia solitaires which sparkle and catch the light just like fine diamond jewellery. This will be a necklace you will wear again at again, at any event where you want to dazzle. Great for a winter wedding too. Fitted with a safety clasp for extra security too, so you don't have to worry about losing it as you party the night away.
And finally, the earrings – I think they have to be bold to complete your red carpet look and our long Party Drop Earrings are the perfect mix of elegance and glamour. Or if hoops are more your style, then our large cubic zirconia hoops would be great – these also look fabulous stacked with other earrings. Maybe some silver huggies and some cubic zirconia solitaire studs.
So, you’ve had the parties, and now you’re panicking about all the Christmas shopping you haven’t done. Present giving is a key part of Christmas and I love to see all those gifts underneath the tree with brightly coloured paper and bows. But as you head to the shops or to the computer to start your shopping – you start to think what on earth can I buy for people?
Here at Cavendish French, we thought we’d try and make it easier for you by suggesting some gift ideas for your friends and family. With our silver jewellery you can always be sure you are buying a quality gift which they will treasure for ever.
We have put together a selection of jewellery designs which we think would be perfect for different types of people, so whether you are buying for your mum, a tricky teenager or someone who loves their garden or flowers, we have the perfect silver jewellery gift for you.
If it’s a daughter or niece you buying for, then the younger age group all seem to love stacking their earrings, so how about a pair of our cute huggie earrings – you can chose from hearts, stars or a simple solitaire design. These won’t cost the earth and look great stacked with other earrings – anything from larger silver hoops to drop earrings or simple studs. If you are choosing for a younger girl then maybe our cute little silver and cubic zirconia Fairy Pendant would be the perfect gift. A little bit like Tinkerbell and very cute.
A gorgeous handmade silver bangle is a great choice for a mum or best friend and our Silver Double Bangle is designed with two beautiful bangles which are interlinked. With contrasting polished and hammered finishes, this is such a lovely and easy bangle to wear alone or stacked with other silver bangles and it makes a lovely tinkling noise as you move.
Along the same theme, a handmade silver pendant worn on a long chain over a dark jumper, or dress creates a really stylish look. Again, you can layer you necklaces but one of our most popular ones to wear long is our silver Wreath Pendant with rings of brushed sterling silver interlocking to form an unusual and tactile pendant which is a delight to wear and for others to look at!
Everyone loves flowers and if there’s someone with ‘green fingers’ in your family try our Celestial Flower within my heart Pendant. Such a cute little handmade silver heart pendant with a rose gold and cubic zirconia flower nestled together with free floating cubic zirconia stones in the centre.
Do you have an animal lover on your list? We love our handmade silver Lazy Cat Brooch, he looks like he's having a good stretch after a nap – maybe after a large Christmas lunch! Maybe a bee would be your choice …. our cute cubic zirconia bee pendant and earrings make the perfect little gift - everyone seems to be crazy for bees at the moment!
Have you got a ‘puzzler’ in the family? Puzzles always seem to come out at Christmas, so how about surprising someone with some jigsaw jewellery, a really unique gift. Our Sterling Silver Puzzle Piece Earrings always get lots of compliments … and if you want to really treat someone there’s our amazing matching handmade silver necklace and bracelet.
Finally, what about a gift for someone you love …. can we suggest our delicate Cupid’s Arrow Necklace. Modern and stylish, this handmade sterling silver and cubic zirconia necklace would make the perfect jewellery gift for someone you love. Designed with a micro-set silver heart and arrow, it looks great worn with our Cupid mismatch earrings and maybe add a longer silver chain with a statement silver heart pendant too. A lovely simple gift which will say it all without costing the earth.
Something else which might make it easier for you to choose is our Christmas Gifts for Her Collection where we have put together some of our customer’s favourite silver jewellery for you to choose from.
If you are trying to keep the costs down this year, then have a look at our collection of Stocking Fillers with all the jewellery priced below £40.00
We deliver all our jewellery to you in a free branded gift box too, (and free UK standard postage) so it's all ready to pop in their stocking or under the tree. And don’t panic - we’re taking orders for Christmas delivery up to 1pm on Thursday 23rd December, so it doesn’t matter how early or late your celebration, or your Christmas shopping, we can get our silver jewellery to you in time.
So, now you’ve got all your Christmas shopping sorted out, time to finish the decorations, book that supermarket slot and get the glitter out with the children (I always tried to avoid glitter..)
We all hope you have a wonderful Christmas and that 2022 is a bright and happy year for all of you.
