Celestial Boodles Cosmos diamond pendant

How many times have besotted lovers promised each other the stars out of the sky? Although slightly short of the real thing, we do have a wonderful selection of celestial jewellery that will make for the best Christmas presents ever. So if you are still searching for Christmas gift ideas, read on for our edit of jewels inspired by the heavens that will twinkle just as brightly as the cosmos itself.  

1. Boodles
Cosmos gold and enamel diamond pendant

Boodles has turned to the cosmos for inspiration this winter and has returned with a collection inspired by stars. A 0.41ct brilliant white diamond lies at the centre of this white gold pendant from the Cosmos collection, looped by a black enamel halo, chosen to represent the darkness of the night sky. This delightful clash of light and dark has been set within an eight-pointed star.

2. YOKO London
Novus gold, diamond and pearl two-finger ring

Mirror-like white gold bars discretely wrap beneath two fingers to create a fun pearl and diamond ring that makes it appear as though diamond-set stars and a creamy South Sea pearl are floating freely between the fingers. This is one bejewelled celestial scene that would make for the best Christmas present ever, and is sure to get an outing on New Year’s Eve.    

3. Lydia Courteille
Moon white gold, diamond and enamel earrings

Shimmering opalescent enamel crescent moons with elegantly carved faces look inwards, while rays of diamond-set white gold stars explode out, falling to earth on white gold chains. These miniature works of art have been designed by Parisian jeweller Lydia Courteille to be worn as diamond earrings, bringing the man on the Moon to your jewellery box.

4. Jessie V E
Star Sign gold ring with diamonds

For avid readers of horoscopes, these rings by Jessie Evans - a new name in the world of fine jewellery - are the fashionable way to wear the celestial trend. Handmade in London and available in rose, white or yellow gold, each diamond ring traces a constellation of stars around the finger, leaving a trail of sparkle in its wake.

5. Sarah Jordan for Arctic Circle
Northern Lights Fairtrade gold and diamond ring

Swirls of gold lead to a round brilliant diamond on this cocktail ring designed by British jeweller Sarah Jordan, for ethical fine jewellery brand Arctic Circle. The design has been inspired by the Northern Lights, with yellow Fairtrade gold representing the Sun’s role in this natural phenomenon, while the ethically mined Canadian diamond represents the spectacular light show dancing above the Arctic tundra.  

6. Bee Goddess at Harrods
Ishtar gold and diamond bracelet

Ishtar is the Babylonian goddess of fertility, love, war and sex, and it is after her that this collection by Bee Goddess is named. Ishtar has close links with the eight-point star and the motif is repeated to create the rose gold links of this cosmic diamond bracelet.

7. Carolina Bucci
Superstellar gold, diamond and pearl bracelet

Two grey pearls have been fitted to the ends of this yellow gold Superstellar bracelet by Carolina Bucci, and on each are gem-set stars. On the larger star, white and grey diamonds, green topaz and yellow sapphires add a zing of colour, while the smaller star holds a single green topaz. The gold of the cuff itself has a sparkly finish, created by the designer’s trademark Florentine technique that uses diamond-tipped tools to make tiny indentations in the metal.

8. Star Diamond
Constellation white and lime diamond gold necklace

Mixed sizes of round brilliant diamonds spiral out from a generously sized 3.00ct Asscher-cut diamond placed at the centre of this pendant, which takes inspiration from constellations. Framing this sky of twinkling stars is a bold display of 92 unusual lime-coloured diamonds, weighing in at more than 8.00cts, bound within a channel setting.   

9. Venyx
Oseanyx white gold and diamond ring

Shoot for the stars with this modern ring created by Greek jewellery designer Venyx. Clusters of diamonds decorate a white gold crescent Moon, with an inner curve decorated with zigzag cuts. A diamond-set star shoots out from the Moon, travelling up the finger when worn. 

10. Sybarite
Day and Night gold and diamond earrings

Perfectly capturing both the lightness and darkness of the universe, these Day and Night diamond earrings from the Heritage collection by London jeweller Sybarite represent the Moon and the Sun.  Each has been crafted in gold and set with a shimmering pavé of white diamonds.
