Don’t get us wrong – chocolate advent calendars will always have a special place in our hearts when December rolls around. But when you think about it, Christmas is a time to add a little extra sparkle to our lives – and we can’t think of a better way to do that than with the newly launched John Lewis jewellery advent calendar.
Yes, for the first time ever, the department store is upping the stakes by releasing a 25 day countdown with a brand new accessory tucked away inside each drawer.
From staple gold hoops to to pendant necklaces to trend-led pearl pieces, the selection inside is packed with plenty of surprises, and would make the most gorgeous gift (to self or otherwise) for any jewellery fan. There’s even jewellery storage pouches included to keep your new collection in great condition.
‘Designed by our in-house team – the advent includes a mixture of gold and silver plated jewellery items alongside charms and semi-precious stones that can be used interchangeably; all can be layered up or worn individually, so you can mix and match as you wish to style in your own way,’ says the brand’s jewellery buyer, Isobel Braiden.
While the goods inside are the obviously the central stars of the show, the fully recyclable box – designed by British illustrator Megan St Clair – is a marble-inspired dream that you’ll definitely want to keep and use in 2021 and beyond.
Want to get your hands on one? Mark 26 October in your diary, as this is when the calendar will go on sale in stores and online, retailing at £199. A word of warning, however – judging by the reaction to the John Lewis beauty advent calendar this year, competition for these calendars is fiercer than ever this year…
