All that glitters: Watch and jewellery gifts for women


They say good things come in small packages and, if that means finding fine jewellery or a mechanical watch under the tree come Christmas morning, we’re inclined to agree. But, of course, precious stones and Swiss movements don’t come cheap so, if you’re going to splash the cash, make sure you’re investing in pieces she’s guaranteed to love. Here’s our guide to the best women’s watch and jewellery gifts for Christmas 2022.

Brilliant jewellery Christmas gifts


chupi jewellery

Founded in 2013 by eponymous designer Chupi Sweetman, and inspired by the stories behind her grandmother’s beloved rings, Chupi’s jewellery is all about symbolism, talismans and creating heirlooms for future generations. Handmade in Ireland using 100 per cent recycled gold and diamonds that are either recycled, lab-grown or ethically certified through the Kimberley Process, every piece is presented in a gorgeous velvet box destined to become a dressing table keepsake.

The range is vast but, for Christmas 2022, we recommend gifting versatile pieces that can be worn alone or stacked with existing jewellery box favourites. Take, for example, these Just The Two Of Us and Stars In The Sky diamond necklaces. Both highlight the natural beauty of 14 karat yellow gold through soft, organic shapes, while the latter also features a quartet of stunning round-cut diamonds. Elegant and understated, they are perfect for taking a mix-and-match approach to jewellery.

For something a little flashier that can still be worn every day, the Crown of Hope ring features a spray of marquise diamonds forming a diadem crown. The more understated Evil Eye and Crowd of Sky rings, meanwhile, are perfect stacking pieces that can be worn every day as a special reminder of the gift giver. And with a choice of opal, emerald and diamond stones, there’s a design perfect for everyone.

Finally, if earrings are more her thing, Chupi’s modern take on the classic huggie is a surefire hit in any stocking – all you need do is decide whether she would prefer her diamond suspended from the hoops or embedded within them. Simple. The even better news? From 10 November 2022, Chupi will be announcing a special Black Friday offer we promise you won’t want to miss out on. Keep your eyes peeled.

Just The Two Of Us necklace, £589,; Stars In The Sky necklace, from £789,; Crown of Hope ring, £3,689,; Eternity diamond huggies, £999,; Hope and Magic earrings, £999,; Evil Eye emerald ring, £789,; Crown of Sky ring, £1,289,; Evil Eye opal ring, £789,


fope jewellery

Buying for a woman who likes her jewellery a little less bling? Fope has been creating gorgeous jewellery from its headquarters in Vicenza since 1929 and many of its contemporary pieces hark back to iconic designs from the 1980s – not that you’d know it from their timeless clean, modern lines and minimalist aesthetic. Add to that Fope’s unique Flex’it technology, whereby tiny springs are hidden beneath each link to make its jewellery incredibly flexible and comfortable, and you’ve got the recipe for some serious heirloom pieces.

Don’t, however, make the mistake of thinking that means Fope’s pieces are understated. What its designs eschew in gemstones they more than make up for in bold design, incredible craftsmanship and an art for stacking which makes it nearly impossible to buy just one. You could choose the 18ct white gold and diamond Aria necklace, 18ct gold Luna bracelet, or Panorama bracelets pictured above, but wouldn’t it be better just to wow her and gift all three? (Oh, and men, they’ll all look great on you too…)

18ct white gold Aria long necklace, £3,590,; 18ct flexible gold Luna bracelet, £8,080,; 18ct gold flexible Panorama bracelet, £4,810,

Crafted in 18 karat white gold and finished with a dazzling spray of frosty diamond florals, this Miss Daisy bangle is the perfect piece for effective black-tie events.

annoushka x temperley earrings

These romantic earrings, the result of a collaboration between jewellery designer Annoushka Ducas and fashion designer Alice Temperley, may technically be aimed at the bridal market but we’re of the opinion that they’re so beautiful they shouldn’t be saved for just one day. Each a variation on the lovebird theme, every piece in the collection is crafted in 18t gold and finished with freshwater pearls and diamonds.

Sophie Theakston

Inspired by talismanic symbols and the spiritual associations and energies of gemstones, all of Sophie Theakston’s jewellery is made by independent artisans in Jaipur – with the aim of protecting local craftsmanship – using ethically mined stones and gold. While Theakston’s designs appear deceptively simple, the devil is in the details, with unusual stone cuts, intricate engraving and organic shapes pressed into the service of some seriously covetable pieces.

Watches for her

As part of its ongoing mission to cater to every part of your wardrobe, Net-A-Porter is now home to an expansive range of mechanical watches from some of the industry’s leading houses – as well as plenty of expert advice to help you choose the perfect timepiece. For women, the collection spans references from the likes of Jaeger-LeCoultre, IWC Schaffhausen, Cartier and more. We’re rather fond of this classic gold Hermès Heure H double-strap watch.

Tag Heuer

You know the Tag Heuer Carrera. Of course, you do. It’s one of the best-selling timepieces from one of the world’s most famous watch brands. So how to take a classic and make it even better? Add diamonds, obviously. Available in steel or rose gold and steel iterations, with a choice of diamond-set bezel, diamond-set indices or diamond-set everything, this is truly an everyday watch taken to the next level.

Patek Phillipe

For too long women were underserved when it came to classic mechanical watchmaking, but now female watch aficionados finally have an abundance to choose from – as do those who wish to gift them. And why stop at one timepiece when Patek Philippe has excellent options for all areas of her life?

From Monday to Friday there are few timepieces that are a better companion for any time of day or night quite like the Twenty~4 collection. Powered by a calibre 324 S C self-winding movement, the Twenty~4 Automatic features the collection’s first round case, which is set with 160 diamonds. We’re rather taken with this versatile version which sports a wardrobe-friendly grey sunburst hue on the dial. For the weekend, meanwhile, the sporty styling of the Calatrava Pilot Travel Time, with its oversized indices and vintage brown calfskin strap, will elevate casual looks while remaining playful. Thanks to a dual time zone complication, local and home day/night indicators and a 30-minute counter, it’s a practical option for busy lives too.

Finally, and perhaps most impressively, is the Calatrava Diamond Ribbon Joaillerie. Crafted with a 36.5mm white gold case and dial set with 679 graduated diamonds (plus another 91 adorning the crown, lugs and buckle), this is a truly stunning black tie timepiece. There’s some serious watchmaking underpinning those aesthetics too, with the case housing an ultra-thin self-winding mechanical calibre 240 movement.

Twenty~4 Automatic in steel, grey sunburst dial with black gradation, £22,860,; Calatrava Pilot Travel Time in rose gold, brown sunburst dial with a black gradation, £44,760,; Diamond Ribbon Joaillerie in white gold, dial fully set with diamonds, £64,760,


bremont lady k watches

Launched in 2021, Bremont’s Lady K timepiece is lovingly named for the boat the father of founders Nick and Giles English built for their mother. Paying homage to a woman they describe as ‘artistic and adventurous’, the Solo Lady K also represents the first time Bremont has incorporated diamonds into a core collection, with a diamond-set bezel highlighting either a white or Tahitian mother-of-pearl dial. Timeless and sophisticated, this is a watch guaranteed to impress women aged 17 to 70.
