How to choose the best jewellery advent calendar

Having grown in popularity over the past few years, this season sees more jewellery advent calendars on offer than ever. With myriad options to suit every taste and budget, however, the choice can be a little overwhelming.

When choosing your calendar, the first thing to consider is price: this year’s calendars range from under £20 right up to four-figure options, so it’s a good idea to establish what your budget is before starting the search.

Take into account the recipient’s jewellery style; are they (or you if it’s a self-gift) 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? Many calendars this year are pitched at different ages groups, which adds another element to think about before committing to purchase.

The final point to consider is value. Though jewellery advent calendars are at a higher price point, they tend to offer good value for money as they present the opportunity to buy jewels in bulk. This means the overall RRP is often a lot cheaper than buying individual pieces. So, when considering a calendar, it’s worth thinking about the wider saving you will be making.

With the above in mind, here are the best styles available for 2020. Just make sure to snap yours up quickly as these are guaranteed to sell out fast.
