UK Christmas Gifts Guide: Jewellery under £5,000


What jewellery can you get for up £5,000 in the UK as the ideal Christmas present? I decided to ask this question to the leading British designers and jewellery brands who are based in the UK.Their answers and suggestions you will find below along with the explanations of their choices.

DAVID MORRIS 

Bond Street boasts the boutique of prestigious British brand David Morris whose pieces you’ll have definitely seen in the James Bond films: “David Morris’ collections vary from sumptuous objects for special occasions to delicate pieces for everyday wear and the glittering starlet earrings will forever be an essential accessory for all those Bond girls out there”.

JEWELLERY THEATRE 

Jewellery Theatre’s earrings from the Byzantium collection would be an ideal gift for Christmas and New Year. The gentle silken weave of the white gold and the grace of the diamonds accentuate the elegance of a business suit whilst outfits for balls and banquets can be accessorised with a refined ring and a delicate, feather-light bracelet.

DE BEERS 

De Beers, meanwhile, has fashioned the perfect Christmas present: the delicate Moonlight Lotus Band ring made from black ceramic, white gold and diamonds. “The black ceramic and white gold of the band reflects the mysterious side of the moonlight shining with serenity”.

If you walk just off Bond Street onto Davies Street, you’ll see a shop owned by the typically British jeweller David Marshall. For £4,170, you can buy diamond earrings that are shaped like sharp-winged butterflies. “The timeless, pretty butterfly design will look great on any woman and they are the perfect earrings to dazzle at a party or pair with a cosy cashmere sweater for romantic nights in!”.
