A guide to choosing jewellery this party season
26th Nov 2018
It’s that magical time of year… party season; the sparkliest, glitziest month of all. It's time to dress to impress and embrace the festivities. We all know that as a general rule over the Christmas period, there’s no such thing as too much shimmer and shine, which brings us to some of the most important accessories of all… jewellery. After all, no outfit is complete without it. Festive Drinks with Friends If you’re going for festive drinks with friends, chances are you want to relax and just have fun. Festive cocktails anyone? For this part of festivities, you might want to go for something more cosy and casual, yet playful and ready for wherever the night may take you. In this instance, an evening with friends is the perfect excuse to rock a jumpsuit. The beauty of a jumpsuit is that it can be dressed up or down as you wish. Simply pair it with a clutch, your favourite heels and a beautiful item of jewellery. The Waterford Crystal Tennis Bracelet is the perfect piece to pair with your jumpsuit to give it that little extra pizazz. The contemporary crafted design of this bracelet looks wonderful when worn both on its own or paired with a thinner chain bracelet. It’s a perfectly subtle accessory or an ultimate outfit showstopper, making it a versatile piece for your festive diary dates.

That said, you need an outfit that combines style with practicality. A swing style dress with a hint of sparkle and embellishment is perfect for a party setting, and the loose fit will keep you looking chic and feeling comfortable throughout proceedings. This outfit desires nothing but a beautiful ring, and our pick is our stunning Diamond and Ruby Cluster ring. This piece certainly has the wow factor with its delicate and elegant design, set with a gorgeously warm 1.81-carat ruby. The added touch of the surrounding, brilliant cut diamonds that really sparkle in the light, makes this a comely accessory for the Christmas party season. This classic piece is truly timeless and looks absolutely fantastic.

A great staple outfit for such an occasion is the classic little black dress. The LBD is also the perfect and possibly most exciting outfit to style with accessories, especially twinkly ones! The great thing about the little black dress is that just about anything goes. However, as a rule, it is a good idea to steer clear of jewellery pieces with hints of navy blue or brown in them - let the colours pop! A beautiful piece that will really make your outfit shine is our stunning Diamond Teardrop Necklace, that has been carefully crafted from 18-carat white gold. It truly is a showstopper, and its dazzling display of white pavé set diamonds are guaranteed to shine brightly throughout the night… we love a little bit of frosting.

It’s time to enter the new year in style with natural elegance and an abundance of sparkle! Tonight, there is no such thing as too much glamour, so grab your champagne glass and dress to impress, as this is a soirée to be remembered. In true Browns Family Jewellers style, we’re thinking of a Great Gatsby romance; a luxuriously silky dress matched with a statement winter coat, and not forgetting a pair of glitzy heels. This leads us to the penultimate feature to top off this already elegant ensemble. Our Morganite and Diamond Drop Earrings are unquestionably the perfect finishing touch. These stunning earrings have been beautifully crafted from 18-carat rose gold, and feature a large, exquisitely hued morganite gemstone, offset perfectly with surrounding bright white diamonds. These earrings are sure to catch some enviable eyes as they dazzle with every move.
