Luxury jewellery gifts for her
David Morris Empire Necklace
An undisputed show-stopper, this dazzling diamond creation hails from David Morris’ newly launched ‘Spotlight’ collection. Injecting the classic geometry of 1920s design with a blast of modernity, the Empire suite sets emerald cut diamonds in a graphic tapestry of diamonds, while the geometric elegance of the Sempiterno suite is accentuated with interlocking geometric motifs that call to mind decorative tiles. The necklace is set with 54.94ct diamonds in total.
Messika Glitter Fever Ring
Inspired by the enduring glamour of the heyday of Seventies disco, this yellow diamond ring by Messika is taken from the jeweller’s 2023 high jewellery collection. ‘Each square of the necklace, earrings, ring or lip jewel has been proportioned to best match the cut of each yellow diamond. High-precision work that reflects an unparalleled level of technical expertise,’ says the brand of the head-turning piece.
Garrard Wings Rising Golden Mother of Pearl and Diamond Earrings
The Garrard Wings Rising collection launched in spectacular fashion with a party at the Tower of London. Such a grand venue would threaten to outshine even the most impressive of jewels, but these diamond-encrusted confections from Garrard, the first official Crown Jeweller and creator of iconic jewellery for the Royal Family, more than rise to the occasion. These golden mother of pearl and diamond earrings are crafted in the shape of wings that frame the face.
A playful take on the construction of a traditional keyring loop, this simple, everyday piece boasts a full pavé of over 1.2 carats of brilliant cut diamonds that have been hand-set in London. The band itself is made from 14k solid gold.
Boucheron Wladimir the Cat Bracelet
The story of Wladimir the cat is one that has captivated jewellery experts for decades. The motif, now synonymous with the glamour of Boucheron, is based on the real-life Wladimir – the pet of Gérard Boucheron, son of house founder and Parisian master jeweller Frédéric Boucheron. Today, Wladimir inspires a number of the most awe-inspiring Boucheron designs, including this bracelet, which features two cat heads with piercing green eyes and tsavorite necklaces. A purr-fect choice for the woman looking for something out-of-the-ordinary.
Boghossian Kissing Diamond and Sapphire Ring
Made with diamond and sapphire, this striking ring employs the signature ‘kissing’ technique of Boghossian. ‘Two precious gems appear to embrace in a delicate dance, each one chosen to complement and enhance the other’s colour and beauty,’ the jewellery house explains. With such a poetic backstory, it is easy to imagine how this precious present would capture the recipient’s imagination.
