With so much choice out there, from opulent statement pieces to delicate barely there jewels, it can be hard to find just the right present. But fret no more as we have sifted through hundreds of jewels to bring you our seasonal guide to the very best Christmas gift ideas for women.
Let's start with bracelets. A bracelet is the perfect accessory to finish off an outfit and a piece of jewellery that will be worn time and time again. From contemporary to luxurious, we have picked out our favourite bracelets under £10,000.
Charm someone special with a very cool, very contemporary Pomellato bracelet from the Sabbia collection in rose gold with white, grey and black diamonds (£9,130). We love the whole Pomellato Sabbia range, which is inspired by the shimmer of the sand on exotic beaches, and the way all the pieces can be mixed and matched.
The idea of turning a nail into a precious jewel may seem absurd, but trust Cartier to transform this simple piece of hardware into a beautiful contemporary bracelet. With a name that translates in English to 'just a nail', the gleaming gold Cartier Juste un Clou bracelet (£4,850) was originally designed in the 1970s and inspired by the legendary Studio 54 nightclub in New York. Such a simple yet clever design, it still looks as striking and modern today and it is definitely the kind of piece that you will want to wear every day.
This gold Carolina Bucci bracelet (£8,815) was created using centuries-old weaving looms, resulting in the most amazingly supple woven gold, accentuated with diamonds. It is so supremely comfortable that you will probably forget you have it on until someone walks up to you at a party to compliment you on your superb taste in accessories.
Falling into the more wallet-friendly category is this petite Skinny Deco Raphaele Canot bracelet in white gold with pavé white diamonds and red enamel (£1,800). While it may be more keenly priced than some of the others, I would be thrilled to receive this beautiful Art Deco inspired bracelet as a gift at any time of year.
At the other end of the spectrum and just a little over budget at £11,000 is this leather Horsehead Ralph Lauren bracelet, the American master of casual chic and equestrian-inspired objects. With a white gold horse head covered in diamond pavé and a sparkling sapphire eye, I'd be willing to overspend for this bold and beautiful statement piece.
So there you have it, four bracelets under £10,000 and one very special Ralph Lauren jewel if you are planning on really pushing the boat out - all wonderful gift ideas for women that she will be thrilled to find under the Christmas tree.
