It’s never too early to look ahead to the glitziest season of all, and now Christmas can be even *more* glitzy with this line-up of jewellery advent calendars.
Now that the season to sparkle is creeping up on us (albeit faster than expected), many of us will be turning our attention to what we’ll be adorning ourselves with once the clock strikes 12 on 30 November.
After all, nothing quite beats the thrill of the December countdown or the impetus to dress bigger and brighter. A new way to fully embrace the glitz and glamour of party season: a jewellery advent calendar.
While their beauty counterparts are admittedly more ubiquitous, there’s nothing like counting down to Christmas by unfurling a twinkling new something-or-other each and every morning.
And brands are betting on them too, with fashion editor favourite Missoma among them with its 2021 offering. After all, a little bit of bling never hurt anybody, did it?
