Jewellery never shines brighter than it does during the festive season. When it comes to styling your jewellery throughout the year it's usually all about finding pieces you love and pairing them with a matching outfit. When styling jewellery for Christmas you’ll want even more bling and sparkle than normal, but getting the perfect balance can be tricky.

You will see all sorts of seasonal jewellery combinations, from co-ordinated elegant necklace and earring sets to novelty Christmas-themed pins and bracelets. All of these holiday options make festive jewellery styling even more exciting, allowing you to add touches of personality and charm to any festive look.

From extra bling for parties through to more subtle styles for family gatherings, Hatton Jewellers shares the best ways to style your Christmas jewellery to make any look shine this winter. 

Always Consider The Occasion

When it comes to your Christmas bling you should always consider the occasion, from meals with the family to adding the final touches to your New Year’s Eve outfits. If your cocktail dress is full of glitz and glamour and the occasion is a festive party, you may consider toning the jewellery down for a more sophisticated, elegant finish. 

If you are staying in to have  a festive tipple with family in a more simple outfit, you should add a bold statement piece so you still feel fabulous yet completely comfortable. 

Know Your Christmas Style 

When it comes to styling your festive looks, you should still want your personality to shine through. If you typically wear layered looks, then stick to this with a touch of extra Christmas sparkle. Co-ordinated holiday pieces, layered gold chains and gleaming diamond rings can take your festive party outfits to the next level. 

Are you more of a simple necklace person? If this is the case, opt for some Christmas stud earrings paired with a matching necklace and bracelet - adding a sophisticated element to your looks. 

Make an Impact This Winter 

It’s the perfect time of year to show off your favourite festive jewellery! Make your jewellery the star of the show by keeping the rest of your outfit simple. Pick an outfit that highlights and complements your festive style or choose black and white pieces so your jewellery can do all the talking. Allow your outfit to be the blank canvas ready to layer on all your festive bling, letting you sparkle whether you’re staying in or visiting family. 

Less is More When it Comes to Festive Bling 

It’s easy to get carried away when it comes to styling your jewellery for Christmas. Remember less is more! Every item should work in harmony with each other, creating a balanced sparkly look that truly helps you mark any special occasion. 

Maybe you want to add a touch of colour to your look with a stand-out necklace or you want your accessories to blend in with your whole outfit - either way, ensuring you have just the right amount of Christmas jewellery can make your outfit sing! Choose dream-worthy jewellery that will bring joy to dressing up, whether you are staying in or spending time with family.  

Pick a Subtle Festive Colour 

Add a little festive cheer to your looks or glam up a dress for your Christmas Day dinner with a touch of colour. Choose a single unifying colour for your jewellery, such as a hint of subtle green or red for a touch of Christmas. Even if the styles of the pieces differ, picking a single colour will create a balanced, elegant look. This is a great way to get into the holiday fun without overwhelming your whole outfit.
