Gold for the holidays

Yellow gold jewellery is a warming gift at this time of year. From necklaces and earrings to bracelets and bangles, gold provides an added touch of sophistication to polish off day and evening outfits.

White gold earrings are a classic choice of gift with earrings being particularly elegant. With a choice of sleek, simple white gold hoops or more fancy stone set studs or drop earrings, white gold is a timeless gift to be worn and kept for many years to come.

Yellow or white stone set pendants add a touch of glamour to a beautiful Christmas dress, making it a perfect gift. For those who appreciate matching jewellery, consider a classic jewellery set with a matching pendant and earrings or pendant and bracelet.

All I want for Christmas is sterling silver

Sterling silver is one of the most popular gifts for all occasions, especially Christmas. Lockets crafted in this lustrous precious metal could be a sentimental present for them to keep close to their hearts. Lockets are often only received as a gift and it makes a beautiful keepsake that can be worn and treasured for a lifetime.

Plain or stone set sterling silver earrings are a must-have for all jewellery wardrobes. One can never have too many sterling silver earrings as they do go with virtually everything!

diamond pendant necklace

I’m dreaming of a diamond pendant…

Traditional and elegant, diamond pendants are a wonderful choice of gift, sure to cause a priceless reaction.

Diamond solitaire pendants and even earrings are especially traditional, set in silver or white or yellow gold, diamonds offer a classic style with a contemporary edge.

Diamond jewellery provides the perfect combination of style and glamour. It is without a doubt eye-catching with all its sparkle, making it a brilliant gift choice.

pearl earrings

Let it snow with pearls...

Pearls are the epitome of sophistication for all occasions and almost define the word ‘classic.’

Every lady must have set of go-to pearls in her jewellery wardrobe and if you’re looking to buy her first piece for Christmas, consider an elegant strand of pearls.

If you’ve noticed her wear pearls before, think about adding to her collection to complete her set. For example, if she already has and wears a pearl strand necklace, consider a graceful pair of pearl stud, or drop earrings to match.

gemstone rings

It’s beginning to look a lot like gemstones...

Precious gemstones ruby, sapphire and emerald are perfect for Christmas, adding more colour and radiance to the festive months.

Iconic red ruby stud earrings and pendants will add a prominent splash of colour. Sapphire jewellery is a timeless choice, portraying a beautiful blue colour that is suited to everyone. Paired with diamonds or set solo in an opulent gold or silver chain, sapphire is a lavish gift that aims to please.

Emerald jewellery reflects royalty and sophistication, with a selection of rings, necklaces, and earrings, you’re sure to find the perfect gift this Christmas.

A Christmas proposal

Christmas is a magical time of year, with an array of stunning decorations and glowing fairy lights almost everywhere you go. The festive atmosphere creates the perfect scene for a romantic Christmas proposal!

We all know Christmas is not just about the presents and great food. It is an important time to reflect and show appreciation for the special people in your life and be thankful for your blessings. This may be why Christmas proposals are so popular. It's an ideal time to show the one you love how much they mean to you, by giving them the best Christmas gift of all – a lifetime of love and commitment.

Choosing the engagement ring

With the festive setting already in place, it's time to find the engagement ring if you haven't found it already. If you're struggling with ring styles and what her style might be, explore our Engagement Ring Guide, with key information on her style, ring sizing and styles, metal types and so much more! Rest assured that here at H.Samuel, we have a variety of amazing products and expertise to help you select the right engagement ring to help express your love.

Diamonds are the classic choice for engagement rings. If she is into show-stopping glamour, a beautiful bridal set from our exclusive Perfect Fit brand incorporates a stunning and perfectly matching engagement ring and wedding band. Set with diamonds for luxurious sparkle, a bridal set will be the star of the show!

Classic diamond solitaires are traditional and timeless and are sure to turn heads over the Christmas holidays. Set within warm yellow gold or a cooler white gold or platinum, diamond solitaires offer a timeless style with a dash of sparkle.

For something extra special, our diamond range – The Forever Diamond offers exceptional sparkle with its unique flower cut. These branded diamonds have 73 beautifully proportioned facets which create a truly dazzling diamond.

Unique engagement rings

To celebrate this exclusive milestone in your relationship, you may wish to choose a more unusual ring. This could be a great way to show how well you really know the one you love. If she's far from traditional and looks to stand out, this is the perfect time of year for her to show off and draw attention to her unusual engagement ring.

Rose gold rings are beautiful and different from the commonly favoured yellow gold and silver-tone rings.

Winter weddings

Winter weddings are wonderfully popular. Many venues are pre-decorated with a Christmas theme, giving you a little more scope to splash out on personalised Christmas decorations, wedding jewellery and special gifts for your bridal party.

Winter wedding décor

Whether you choose to theme your wedding around Christmas or decide on an icy, winter coloured theme such as blue and white, your big day can be an elaborate magical wonderland or an intimate romantic celebration.

If you’ve decided on a fabulous festive wedding celebration, you can add special detail to the decoration in your venue. No Christmas themed wedding is complete without a gorgeous Christmas tree, and what better way to decorate it than by adding personalised glass Mr & Mrs baubles.

For extra special touches on the head table, you could incorporate a selection of personalised ‘Merry Christmas’ tall champagne flutes, engraved with your wedding date – perfect for when you raise your glasses for the toasts!

For the other tables in the room, candlelight is wonderfully romantic and warming in winter, so adding personalised ‘Merry Christmas’ or ���Wedding Day’ candles, finished with your names and wedding date, can make for beautiful table centrepieces.

Winter wedding gifts

Having your wedding in the winter months allows you to buy great gifts for your spouse or bridal party that can be based around Christmas or the wintery theme of your soiree.

Gifts for the bridal party

Many couples choose to give a gift of appreciation to their bridal party to thank them for their support in the lead up to the big day. A great idea could be to choose gemstone jewellery associated with the month of your wedding date. You can go for icy blue topaz jewellery for November, indulge December with purple tanzanite or warm-up January with a fiery garnet.

Whatever décor, jewellery, and gifts you choose, winter weddings are truly magical, and it will surely be a day that you and your guests will remember for a lifetime.
