While decorating with the traditional reds, greens and golds is always a favourite at this time of year, Christmas often sees new and emerging trends taking the limelight.
We’ve taken a look at what’s hot for Christmas decoration trends this year, and matched each trend with some of our own stunning jewellery. Whether you’re into cute penguins, magical unicorns or fabulous feathers – we have a sparkling look that’s just for you!
Cute, cuddly and definitely loveable – it seems that penguins are a perpetual trend when it comes to jewellery, fashion and decor. From Pingu, to March of the Penguins right through to Monty (of John Lewis Christmas advert fame), penguins have well and truly found their way into the hearts of the nation – and this is never more evident than at Christmas time.
Embrace the penguin trend this year, and sport our very own gorgeous penguin necklace! This adorable penguin pendant sits on a sterling silver chain with an optional tassel charm; a cute accessory for the festive season – or a stunning gift to surprise someone on Christmas morning.
While unicorns might be mythical, the unicorn trend is most definitely real. We’ve seen pastel hair, unicorn prints and even unicorn frappuccinos rise in popularity over the last couple of years. This trend is all about pastels and rainbow colours – as well as the symbol of the magical beast itself, so it seems only fitting that unicorns have made their way into the realm of festive decor.
Rock this trend at Christmas with our gorgeous gold and sterling silver unicorn necklace, made from solid sterling silver and finished off with an 18ct gold horn. This beautiful necklace combines the mixed metals trend with the contemporary magic of the unicorn symbol, so it would make a beautiful and thoughtful gift for anyone who is fashion conscious, but loves to embrace their inner-child.
The Lucky Eye (also known as the ‘Evil Eye’, somewhat confusingly) is a symbol from classical mythology – and it’s making a comeback in both contemporary jewellery and Christmas decor it seems!
Our personalised boho disc charms can be engraved with a selection of gorgeous symbols, but we absolutely love the boho-chic detailing of the Evil Eye option. The design is engraved on a beautiful sterling silver disc charm which can sit on either a silver ring or trigger clasp, making them perfect for adding to your existing jewellery.
Perhaps due to the enduring appeal of the ‘Woodland’ trend, squirrels are making many an appearance this Christmas, and we couldn’t be happier! From cushion covers, to ornaments, to the widely coveted Mulberry Squirrel Pouch, there’s something about these furry friends that strikes just the right balance of being cute as well as stylish.
Our beautiful sterling silver or rose gold squirrel necklace is a definite nod to this enduring trend, and is a perfect gifting option for anyone who loves this cute woodland creature. Made from sterling silver or 18ct rose gold vermeil, the necklace can be personalised with an optional charm to create a stunning bespoke gift. It’s sure to put a smile on someone’s face this Christmas.
Feathers are seeing something of a resurgence in popularity, with high-fashion designers determined to make them trendy, rather than tacky. Fluffy feather detailing is making a massive comeback in clothing, but we can also see this trend appearing in beautiful Christmas decor – with feather wreaths and contemporary feather tree ornaments taking centre stage.
Our stunning sterling silver and gold personalised feather necklace is a perfect example of this simple but stylish trend. The necklace features a delicate gold vermeil feather pendant on a sterling chain, and can be personalised with a discreet engraved tag to create a heartfelt Christmas gift for someone truly special.
Angels are flying at this time of year! From contemporary ethereal designs, to traditional winged figures synonymous with Christmas – angels wings add a heavenly touch to both fashion and festive decor.
Wear this angelic symbol with our stunning rose gold heart and angel wing necklace, which allows for some gorgeous personalisation and makes this necklace a perfect gifting option. Or, our gold angel wing pendant necklace can take the trend to the next level when paired with our matching earrings. Ever-popular among the trend-conscious, angels wings represent love, spirituality and protection (among other things), so it’s no wonder angels are such a popular symbol at this time of year.
