It’s the start of the holiday season, but you still haven’t yet started your Christmas shopping? Never fear! Here is your Christmas shopping guide to the top 5 jewellery trends for all the lovely ladies in your life. 

1. THE COUSIN: CHOKERS

Some people avoid chokers, fearing that wearing one will make them look dated, but if worn correctly; chokers can dress up a simple silhouette or make an already edgy outfit more intriguing.

2. THE SISTER: ASYMMETRIC JEWELLERY

Whether asymmetric in colour, shape or length, it’s time to go bold and try something a little different from your usual for the holiday season. Asymmetric pieces are classy, sassy and a little whimsical, and are sure to be a conversation starter at your next social occasion.

3. THE BEST FRIEND: STATEMENT NECKLACES

Bold and made to be noticed, make sure you wear your hair up in a bun or a ponytail and pair it with a simple dress or top to let the necklace stand on its own.  Try to keep other jewellery pieces you’re wearing with the statement necklace minimal, so as to not compete.

4. THE WORK COLLEAGUE: STACKED JEWELLERY

Popular on the recent 2015 spring/summer fashion runway shows, the more rings you wear, the edgier you’ll look. Whether they’re rose or yellow gold, silver or jewelled, don’t be afraid to mix metals and colours together. Wear thick, thin, delicate or bold styles. Mix and match, until you find the combination that you really love.

5. THE MOTHER: LONG PENDANTS

Long necklace pendants visually lengthen the torso, making them flattering, and adding a little something special to a monochromatic outfit. Whether you pair one with a corporate work outfit, it’s also versatile enough to see you from the office to after work drinks.
