Ice queen chic

Bring some icy charm to your next party outfit with one of our incredible white gold or platinum pieces. Think frosty hues of white, silver and ice blue for a sophisticated and wintry Christmas party look, with added sparkle to make sure you steal the show. 

Accessorise the neckline of your party dress with this Cartier 18k white gold diamond Diadea necklace. Use the sweeping curves of the oval open link design to add a touch of timeless glamour to your outfit, accentuated by the colourless round brilliant cut diamonds scattered across the piece. The subtle push button fastening on this diamond necklace comes together without disrupting the design, creating a seamless look. 

Add even more drama to your look with a pair of 18k white gold double cluster diamond earrings. Arranged in little clusters of seven round brilliant cut diamonds, two on each earring, they could even look like little snowflakes that can sparkle away all night long. These pre-loved designer earrings are suitable for pierced ears and, with secure omega backs, you won’t have to worry about them coming loose after a night of dancing!

If you’re a lover of authentic vintage jewellery, add this 18k white gold aquamarine & diamond vintage brooch to your collection this Christmas. Dating from the 1920s, this absolutely gorgeous piece features an Art Deco design that’s set with 144 rose cut diamonds to emphasise the geometric pattern. It also features an emerald cut aquamarine set in the centre as the star of the show, adding a beautiful splash of turquoise to the near colourless diamonds. This piece is a perfect example of a highly stylised Art Deco design, showcasing clean lines and made with luxurious materials. 

Bring some frosty sparkle to your wrists with this Cartier Riviere platinum emerald cut diamond  tennis bracelet. The classic, pared-back design of a tennis bracelet is ideal for letting the near colourless emerald cut diamonds really shine. Keep it sleek and sophisticated by wearing this diamond bracelet alone, or layer it with some more of your favourite pre-loved designer bracelets to make more of a bold statement. 

Finish off this snowy and glamorous look with some rings, like this Piaget 18k white gold diamond possession ring. With a chunky platinum band and a rotating band of round brilliant cut diamonds, this bold ring is bound to make a big impression. Bring another touch of icy blue to your outfit with this 18k white gold aquamarine large cocktail ring. The 12.50ct emerald cut aquamarine is a real show-stopper, with 8 princess cut diamonds adding a subtle touch of sparkle to the simple, white gold ring band. Whether you’re wearing alone or pairing with another one of our pre-loved designer rings, it’s the perfect way to channel your inner ice queen this winter.

Inject some warmer tones into your Christmas party jewellery choices with these beautiful yellow gold pieces. Dress up your outfit for the work Christmas party with this Bulgari 18k yellow gold diamond link statement necklace, featuring interwoven gold links interspersed with near flawless round brilliant cut diamonds. The secure push button clasp gives the illusion of a seamless closing, so it’s ideal for pairing with an elegant updo. 

Adorn your wrist with this Mappin & Webb 18k yellow gold fancy yellow diamond cuff bangle.

The 1980s was the decade for statement jewellery, and this 18k yellow gold diamond Boucheron set cocktail ring is no exception. The primary stone is a 3.03ct round brilliant cut diamond, with 42 smaller round brilliant cut diamonds surrounding it for a stunning piece that’s impossible to ignore.

Holiday blues

Break with tradition this Christmas with these beautiful pieces in deep blue hues. Add this Van Cleef & Arpels 18k yellow gold lapis lazuli 20 motif vintage Alhambra necklace to your collection, for an unusual way to make a statement with your jewellery. Lapis lazuli has been a precious material used in jewellery for thousands of years, and has long been seen as a symbol of royalty, status and protection. Featuring the classic Alhambra four leaf clover motif, this gold necklace can be worn in one long strand or looped around for a layered look. The deep blue of the lapis lazuli really allows the yellow gold to pop, making it an unmissable addition to a special outfit. 

If you’re looking for a unique piece, this 18k yellow gold sapphire & diamond Must de Cartier bracelet is a true must-have. A slim gold band set with pear cut sapphires and square emerald cut diamonds, this pre-loved vintage bracelet is pretty enough to be worn alone or among your other favourites.

For a breathtaking centrepiece to your festive outfits, a sapphire and diamond ring will definitely catch the eye - and this Van Cleef & Arpels 18k yellow gold Ceylon sapphire & diamond cocktail ring ticks all the boxes. With a stunning 10.73ct central sapphire surrounded by VVS round brilliant cut diamonds, this statement gold ring was made to stand out from the crowd. The violet-blue hue of the sapphire, as well as its size, makes this an incredibly rare piece, and it has been chosen by Van Cleef & Arpels for its even colour and near flawless appearance.
