Festive jewellery styling

From nailing that perfect Christmas day outfit to finding the ideal look and accessories for a romantic winter date night, when it comes to festive fashion you have so many opportunities to show your individual style. Unlike clothes that you don’t want to be seen in more than once, jewellery is something that you will enjoy time and time again. Versatile pieces like a sparkling pendant, on-trend hoop earrings or a silver bracelet can be paired with different outfits and jewellery combinations to create a range of looks. Take the trusty diamond studs for example - they can be worn alone to add a touch of glamour to a stylish daytime outfit, or can be paired with a statement necklace to transform even a casual look into Christmas-ready attire.

Whilst it’s lovely to have a couple of extra-special pieces that you only wear on meaningful occasions, we’d recommend mainly choosing jewellery that you know you’ll get a lot of wear from. After all, something that beautiful shouldn’t be hidden in a jewellery box.

Choose your style and colour

‘Tis the season to be jolly, and if you’re anything like us, you’ll have learnt how to make the most of what you’ve got this year. This Christmas might be more about staying in than going out – but that doesn’t mean your sequins, velvet dress or your favourite jewellery can’t make a dazzling appearance.

When it comes to accessorising, the first thing to decide is your ‘look’. Are you going for a stylish statement vibe or a subtle stripped-back style? Both are fabulous, so it all comes down to your personal taste. Here we’ll take you through a few of our favourite festive jewellery combinations, from glamorous black and gold to dazzling diamonds and colourful gemstones, so you’ll be sure to find the perfect pieces to suit your taste and budget.

Bold Gold

Perfect for a romantic dinner date with your partner, drinks with friends or Christmas day itself, yellow gold is timeless, sophisticated and oh so stylish. For a glamorous look, nothing is more chic than an all-black outfit paired with yellow gold toned jewellery. If you’ve decided to go for a bold, fashion-forward ensemble then black velvet or sleek satin tops, dresses or jumpsuits are perfect for the festive season, especially when paired with statement earrings and an eye-catching ring or bracelet stack. Or, for something a little more subtle, you can’t beat a LBD with a drop pendant necklace or some classic hoops. Here are a few of our favourite gold jewellery pieces.

Always in style, you can’t go wrong with a yellow gold necklace. You could even get on board with one of the biggest trends of 2020 and consider layering your gold accessories for a really stylish look.

Dazzling Diamonds

Christmas is all about sparkle, and what better way to dazzle than with diamonds. Timeless, elegant and oozing glamour, diamonds are the perfect finishing touch to any outfit. Pair statement earrings and a diamond tennis bracelet with stunning sequins for your go-big-or-go-home look. Or, opt for a sophisticated diamond drop pendant and stud earrings to give the perfect finishing touch to your favourite ‘jeans and a nice top’ outfit. At H.Samuel, you’ll find an impressive selection of diamond jewellery, including collections from the likes of The Forever Diamond, Princessa and Enchanted Disney Fine Jewellery, so you’ll be spoilt for choice.

Stylish Silver

Sterling silver is an attractive, low-cost alternative to white gold or platinum and, when paired with sparkling stones like cubic zirconia or Swarovski crystals, it gives the appearance of luxe diamond jewellery but at a fraction of the price. Silver is very versatile, so it would make a stylish addition to any outfit. Here are a few of our favourite sparkling silver accessories for those looking for some trendy Christmas bling on a budget.



Just like diamond pendants, these contemporary cubic zirconia designs will be sure to turn a few heads over the holidays.

Romantic Rose Gold

If your jewellery style is feminine and romantic, then rose gold toned jewellery is perfect for you. Its subtle and warm pinkish hue creates a very sophisticated look, so it’s little wonder that rose gold has quickly become a jewellery must-have for many stylish ladies. When it comes to styling rose gold jewellery, you’ll have plenty of options as it’s a very versatile metal. However, it does tend to look best with neutral and soft, delicate shades. Another benefit is that it beautifully complements other metals, as well as diamonds and gemstones, so you can mix, layer and stack away! Here are a few of our favourite swoon-worthy rose gold pieces to help you sparkle this festive season.



Offering the perfect amount of stylish sparkle and contemporary style, these sleek pendants would be the ideal finishing touch to your festive wardrobe.
