Oh it's that time of year again when jolly tunes are bursting into this wide world from every store. When TV adds make you reach for tissues rather than a remote control and when the rustling of paper and whooshing of scissors means only one thing - Christmas gift season is upon us! And with all the glorious expectation and anticipation of those long-awaited presents, we couldn't help but offer you a helping hand in choosing that perfect gift they are sure to remember.
We think that every gift you give this holiday season should feel lovingly beautiful, happily surprising and truly personal. With jewellery being one of the most sentimental presents of all, there is not much that can go wrong. Whether you would like to gift her a gorgeous gemstone bracelet, a gold necklace, a stunning pair of earrings or a semi-precious stone ring, start with their style, paying attention to details, colours and shapes. Is 'less is more' their mantra of choice or do they love adding a little bit if extravagance and a lot of style to their look? To inspire you on this gift scouting mission we have thought of the most amazing and important people in our lives and what makes their style so unique. Here are four of our favourite style queens and what will make them tick this Christmas....
You know that wherever she goes, she makes a truly grand entrance.

Gift shopping for this trend-setting style chameleon must feel rather daunting, however you're in luck... the Christmas fairy has just unveiled some perfect pieces... From opulent statement necklaces to striking handmade earrings, we have some breath-taking gold jewellery that will make her swoon.
