Christmas gift ideas for women: new blue jewellery that is anything but traditional

We’re dreaming of a colourful Christmas with new blue jewellery that steals the colours of the sky and the sea.

Ruth Tomlinson gold ring with sapphires and diamonds (£1,850).

By Åse Anderson in London

Stave off the winter blues this Christmas by leaving a jewel in vibrant cobalt wrapped up under the tree. From greeny blue to deepest navy, this wonderful new blue jewellery recreate the piercing hues of the sky and the ocean and make fabulous Christmas gifts. 

With a large rose-cut London Blue topaz surrounded by molten pavé grey diamonds, this Astley Clarke necklace is part of the colourful, butterfly inspired Fao collection. The irregularity of the stones and the long rose gold chain add a contemporary look to this exquisite jewel. 

Bring her the stars and a midnight blue sky this Christmas with the delightful Bibi Van der Velden Cloud lapis lazuli ring. The Amsterdam-based designer has carved this vibrant blue stone into a billowing cloud shape before setting it with a constellation of gold stars.

The sensuousness and mystery of lapis lazuli are also emphasised in these Fernando Jorge earrings with rose gold and diamonds. Part of the Brazilian designer's Fluid collection, they evoke a feeling of harmony and rhythmic movement.

Another stone celebrated for its azure hue and pigmented intensity is, of course, the classic sapphire. The Crowned Moon Beetle ring, by British jewellery designer Polly Wales, emphasises the metallic blue sheen of a rose-cut sapphire by juxtaposing it with a white diamond on a yellow gold band set with sapphires and smaller diamonds.

Unusual and dramatic, the sapphire encrusted Ruth Tomlinson ring in yellow gold with white diamonds would make a fantastic Christmas gift for girls with an edgy style. The beautiful blue stone is said to signify dignity, serenity, loyalty, faith, purity and wisdom.

Blue on blue is the name of the game in this glamorous vintage-inspired Annoushka ring from the celebrated Dusty Diamonds collection. A 10.50ct London Blue topaz is surrounded by blue diamond pavé on a rose gold band. The organic asymmetry of the stones lends the ring a thoroughly contemporary feel.

If you still need convincing that blue jewellery is the way to go this Christmas, remember that it is also the colour that symbolises trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence and intelligence. Imagine all that wrapped up in a beautifully bright gift.
