The holiday season: lots of parties and not enough time to find the perfect gift? If you feel you have bought the woman in your life everything before or your mind has just gone blank, have no fear, these fail-safe holiday gift ideas for women are guaranteed to put you in her good books. 

Coléoptère's chic La Cage ring in yellow gold ($2,250) is modeled after a champagne top, perfect for a time of year when a glass of bubbly should always be close to hand.

Whether you are high school sweethearts or a couple, you can transport her back to her teenage years with Alison Lou's yellow gold U + Me Tree Carving necklace ($2,490). It spells out those immortal words in pavé-set champagne and white diamonds and manages to be romantic, fun and glamorous at the same time.

Spinelli Kilcollin's Carina ring ($4,800) is a modern version of an eternity ring, with three interlocking gold bands, one of which is micro-pavéd with cognac, champagne and white diamonds for a warm sparkle. Versatility is an added plus allowing the wearer to drape the three linked rings across three fingers or stack them all on one.

Links are also the name of the game in Armenta's Circle Link bracelet ($4,790), which combines the designer's signature yellow gold with old-world detailing, including diamond pavé quatrefoil links, beading and a texture that begs to be played with. 

And if the woman in your life prefers coloured gemstone, look no further than these Cathy Waterman earrings in platinum ($4,250). Two vibrant, pear-shaped emeralds are prong-set in a scalloped-edge platinum frame for a look that can be worn day and night.

Now you can get back to the party.

Since founding The Jewellery Editor in 2010, we have grown our digital magazine to be the number one global source of information and inspiration for fine jewellery and luxury watches.

3,500 articles, 150 videos with over 5 million views and a reach of over 2 million per month on social media later, we have offered unparalleled and highly respected coverage of our sector. However, despite our editorial success, we are financially struggling as an independent publisher.

Entirely funded, owned and run by Christine and Maria in London, we are now looking to sell The Jewellery Editor so that it can continue to grow.
