Hot rocks // The best of jewellery Christmas gifting edit

Regular readers are never short of a (self) gifting idea and sometimes it’s rewarding to look beyond our bookmarked e-comm sites.

Think of this as our gift to you –  the Le Blow jewellery edit exists purely to provide fellow magpies with some glittering inspiration in good time for Christmas. As if we need an excuse.

Best new discovery: sells so much more than jewellery. Plus they support designers such as Zara Simon and Fiya for a less obvious choice of gem. Wear rubies or emeralds as conversational pieces forever.

Best everyday: Zoe and Morgan

A testament to the power of Zoe and Morgan designs as modern classics, I’ve been layering my foxy ring and My Darling mother of pearl necklace for years. Take a look at their new designs for a relaxed trademark rock’n’roll finish, everyday.

Best modern fine jewellery: Delfina Delettrez

Alongside Lulu Frost’s collection last season, Delfina’s reimagination of the Evil Eye motif gave it a bold humor and instant wearability. A forth generation Fendi, Delfina’s distinctive designs deliver a punchy alternative glamour.

Best personalised – Daisy Jewellery

Daisy Halo locket necklaces allow you to swop coin designs of your choice. The necklace was popularised this spring by Cara D who reportedly borrowed a conveniently replaceable ‘R’ initial charm from sometime BFF, Rita Ora. My favourite finish is rose gold.

Alternatively, Daisy’s subtle initial ring wins style points for its delicate mixed metal finish.

Best premium vintage – Annina Vogel

You’ve really gotta have some serious dollar for Vogels more rare, intricate designs but we can dream. Her collection was born from her love of gold charms and swiftly grew into a cult label.

Build your gift wish list online or head to Liberty or Selfridges to see her wistful keepsakes. The boyish signet rings are totally spot on – though take note that sometimes the sizing can come up smaller on vintage pieces.

Best high street – J Crew

From Shourouk-style Perspex pieces to classic pearls and a collaboration with statement queen, Lulu Frost, J Crew offers the high-street alternative. Really who would have predicted that shoe clips would become a thing?

An honourable mention also goes to Whistles for their recent collaboration with Lulu Frost on a smaller, art deco-inspired range.
