Note to Santa: the tangerine and chocolate coins are great but can I just draw your attention to this, please?
This bobby dazzler is called Sirena, after the mythical mermaid who lured sailors in to the rocks. Well, it’s certainly lured me in – just look at those dainty seashells surrounding the Swiss blue topaz rock, the quirky white and rose gold mixed band and that pretty peppering of diamonds. It all adds up to something completely unique with a pleasingly vintage vibe – so up to the top of my Christmas wishlist you go, my beauty! It is a time for giving, after all… and that includes to oneself, right?
There’s plenty more where that came from in Biagio The Jeweller‘s show-stopping new Artistry collection, designed by Mr B himself – do take a look if you’re looking to treat yourself to something very special after a busy year (or want to, ahem, encourage someone else to treat you). I’m also blown away by these 18 carat gold diamond drop earrings – just look at them, won’t you? With their elegant Art Deco vibes, I’d wear them for an 8-course dinner on the Orient Express. (Hey, a girl can dream!)
And if I was feeling especially flush and had, say, £6,870 burning a hole in my pocket, I’d plump for the exquisite Rinascimento Fiorenza ring, studded with a whopping 2.42 carats of diamonds, set around a pink beryl (a precious stone, not your nan). C’mon Santa, you know I’ve been especially good this year…
