Jewelry advent calendars have become some of the most coveted over recent years and regardless of your style or budget, there are plenty of new treasure troves for 2021 to shop right now.

Unsurprisingly, jewelry advent calendars attract a large stampede of shoppers during the holiday season, and historically, many fly off the shelves before December. 

Similar to beauty advent calendars, jewelry advent calendars make great Christmas gifts for friends and family members, housing luxe finds at an exceptional value you won't see with individual pieces. 

This year, we anticipate widespread excitement for new releases by John Lewis and Missoma—both of which sold out at record speed in 2020. In the meantime, explore our curation of the best jewelry advent calendars currently available, from luxury and festive collections to personalized options that make for unique Christmas gifts.

How to choose the best jewelry advent calendars

This holiday season, more brands are releasing jewelry advent calendars to meet consumer demand. And, with an array of options for every budget and taste, the search can be overwhelming. 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. Historically, the likes of John Lewis, Pandora and Missoma are on the more luxury end, while other brands are wallet-friendly.
  • Style: Be sure to assess your recipient’s jewelry style. Are they a fan of classic pieces or do they prefer fun novelty trinkets? Do they lean towards gold, silver, or crystal jewels? Are they an earring-lover or have they a penchant for charm bracelets? Should you neglect this step, expect an immediate next-day return.
  • Value: Consider the wider savings you'll be making with your purchase. Albeit pricey, jewelry advent calendars offer great value as they present the opportunity to buy gems in bulk. As a result, the overall RRP is considerably cheaper than the investment of individual pieces. 

Best jewelry advent calendars for 2021

With the above in mind, we've rounded up the best jewelry advent calendars of 2021. Just make sure to snap yours up quickly, as like the most popular candle advent calendars every year, these are guaranteed to sell out fast. Not to mention, shipping will probably be longer than anticipated—after all, most of these options come from small shopowners.
