Maria Doulton: Christmas is a time to really push out the boat, so if you're intending to spend £10,000 and you're looking for a necklace, here is our top line up.

Chaumet, the Place Vendôme jeweller, is known for its very feminine designs and the newest collection is the Hortensia.

Claire Roberts: It's really beautiful, very light to wear, fashionably long and it's openwork rose gold with tiny little hortensia flowers. It's so pretty.

Maria Doulton:  De Beers has just brought out the Aria collection. The inspiration goes back to their reputation of being the jeweller of light. So what the designers have done is they've taken the way that light dances around a diamond and interpreted it in gold and, of course, diamonds.

Measuring over a metre in length, the Piaget necklace, which the French call a sautoir when it's this length, is really distinctive. It's got the openwork gold roses with a little diamond at the centre.

Christine Pasquier: The little design of the flowers with the diamond at the centre on each of them makes it quite striking but easy to wear as well. 

Maria DoultonThis necklace from Boodles, from the Blossom collection, is set with almost 1.50 carats of diamonds, and it's really pretty how the little petal motifs are clustered and all shimmering with diamonds.

Blossom is a theme that Boodles has been using over the years, and I like the way they've set this with diamonds but it sits quite high, so it makes a nice statement.

This little pendant by Graff features the firm's icon, which is a little fan shape. The diamonds are beautifully set and what's more, even though it's quite petite, it really shines out and that is because Graff is really an expert when it comes to diamonds.

Help us make the future bright

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. As e-commerce becomes a priority in our industry, we believe there is huge potential for engaging editorial content and are seeking a buyer who shares our values and passion so that under their guidance we can give a bright future to the platform and help us grow our business to the next stage.
