Or maybe you are jetting off for a healthy dose of winter sun? If, like us, you are spending your time off in the capital we have put together a list of our favourite things to do in London during Christmas.
We love December in all its festive glory, sparkling and sizzling in champagne flutes, dancing in beautiful reflections on jolly red sides of Christmas baubles, tasting of mince pies and soothing hot chocolate. There are so many things to do (we are not just talking about Christmas gift shopping) so many gorgeous parties to attend and so many memories to make. And with every special occasion popping up in our reminders, there is a an outfit to put together. We’re sure you have already started planning your ultimate festive wardrobe, however, here at Ottoman Hands we believe that, no winter look is complete without stunning Christmas party accessories. So to inspire you, we have asked our team to share their festive outfits and beautiful evening jewellery they are planning to complete their looks with.
Jewellery has always had a special place in our hearts, be it a beautifully intricate adornment, found during the latest travels or a precious heirloom passed down from generation to generation. It has been given as a gift for centuries and every culture seems to have left its mark and added its own meaning to this precious object of art. For example, in medieval Europe jewellery was not only seen as a symbol of wealth and status, but believed to be a sacred amulet, protecting the wearer from harm and evil. To this day, wearing our lucky gemstone necklace or slipping on a pair of gorgeous gold earrings, gifted by our favourite grandma, makes us feel happy and unique.
Here at Ottoman Hands, we firmly believe in the special connection between the person and their gems. We think that vibrant semi-precious stones we choose for our handmade treasures have powerful energies and wonderful meanings, making for a truly meaningful Christmas gift. On this note, let us whisk you away on a journey of discovering our favourite gemstone wonders. The only thing left to do is decide which precious stone is perfect for you and your loved ones…
