How to choose the best jewelry advent calendars

The search can be overwhelming with an array of options for every budget and taste. To help you shop, we've outlined the most important considerations below:

  • Price:  This year’s calendars range from $20/£20 right up to four figures. Therefore, we recommend establishing a budget before beginning your research. Major retailers, like John Lewis, Pandora, and Missoma, boast luxury prices, while other brands are more affordable. 
  • Style: To prevent returns or exchanges, assess your recipient’s jewelry style. Do they like classic pieces or novelty trinkets? Do they lean towards gold, silver, or crystal jewels? Do they love earrings or are they into charm bracelets? 
  • Value: Albeit pricey, jewelry advent calendars offer great value as they provide gems in bulk. Ultimately, the overall price is considerably cheaper than the investment of individual pieces.
