Maria Doulton: You're looking for a Christmas present for a very stylish woman, and you want to make sure you get it right, so we have selected style icons that are sure to win her over.

What could be more iconic than a Fabergé egg pendant? This one, in rose gold, is engraved with the words "I love you", but you could, if you prefer, have it personalised with her initials or a secret message, but keep it short.

We all know that Gabrielle Chanel loved camellias and this ring from the Camélia Galbé collection takes the floral shape and interprets it for a really modern look. There's a little diamond right at the middle.

Claire Roberts: It's made from ceramic, which Chanel has used very successfully in its J12 range of watches. It's big, it's bold, and very Chanel.

Maria Doulton: For under £2,000 you can buy her a piece of Van Cleef & Arpels jewellery, and this one is set with a carnelian stone, so although it's very delicate, it has a presence, thanks to the graduated beads and the nice, bright, glossy carnelian sitting in the middle.

Chopard and Happy Diamonds are synonymous because this is one of the most unusual treatments of diamonds that we've seen in the last few decades. Chopard were really the first people to say, "Diamonds don't need to be set in claws; let's set them free", and it's this very clever system. The diamonds are between two sheets of glass, so that they spin really freely.

These Hotlips by Solange Azagury-Partridge are an absolute cult classic, and one for the fashionista. I mean it's cool, it's funky, and it's a little bit cheeky.
