The festivities are about to begin! Christmas is just around the corner and with it comes lots of parties. Christmas parties are full of fun, festive activities and copious amounts of food and drink. So what should you wear to such an occasion? It’s important to remember that although it’s the end of the year and you can let your hair down, you don’t want to get drunk and embarrass yourself in front of your friends or coworkers! Instead, dazzle them with your incredible jewellery! Discover the best jewellery to wear at a Christmas party and our festive style tips.
Sparkle with stars
It’s not truly Christmas if there isn’t any sparkles or glitter involved. Stars and sparkle go hand in hand. You’ll make a shimmering statement and your sparkling jewellery will catch the light and draw all the eyes in your direction - in a good way! Stars can also tie into the religious part of Christmas, representing the Star of Bethlehem. This pair of Sterling Silver Graduated Star Drop Earrings from Latelita London feature sparkling white cubic zirconia and the stars get larger in size and brighter in shine on their way down. They’re also extremely affordable and you can wear them to any special occasion.
Go bright with red & green
You can’t go wrong with red and green jewellery during the festive season. The colours of Christmas, red and green will immediately give you a vibrant and festive look. You can also take these colours to the 'higher end', incorporating classic ruby and emerald gemstones into your look. Alternatively, stay on the cheaper side with red and green cubic zirconia. These colours work beautifully with gold, like in the Sparkling Large Bracelet from Joana Salazar.
Wrap up like a present
Christmas is the time for giving, and you can’t give a gift without wrapping it up and tying it in a bow first! Make your Christmas party more fun with ribbon and bow accessories, reminiscent of a tied up present. Bows and ribbons are accents that you can wear all year round, due to their beautiful, subtle and whimsical shape. The Diamond Mini Bow Ring from Oh my Christine Jewelry is a cute addition to a party outfit. It is full of sparkle from the diamonds, but its mini size makes your outfit the main attraction.
Make a (collared) statement
A statement necklace is an impactful piece and a collar necklace in particular is a great choice for a party. More is more at Christmas, so you can wear a collar necklace with almost everything! Either pair with an LBD or layer over a Christmas jumper. Silver has an icy glow that will never look out of place at Christmas. Try the Sterling Silver Vulcan Choker Necklace from Julie Nicaisse Jewellery.
Go for bling with a cocktail ring
Christmas is for OTT design and powerful gemstones, and a cocktail ring fits this perfectly. Experiment with gemstone cocktail rings this season. Keep it simple with one ring or take it to the extreme and incorporate multiple rings with clashing colours and varying sizes. The Abstract Halo Cocktail Ring from Shimmer by Cindy comes in lots of different colours, so you can wear one as a standalone piece or amp it up with multiple.
