This cult jewellery advent calendar already has hundreds of people on its wait list

Advent calendars are no longer just about chocolate. This Christmas, we are all about the jewellery advent calendar, starting with Missoma.

There was a time when advent calendars would be purchased at the end of November and would be of the edible variety. If you were very lucky it was a Thornton’s one with your name iced onto a large chocolate slab saved only for Christmas morning. The 2019 version of advent calendars are somewhat different.

On 22 October, jewellery giant Tiffany & Co launched its very own version of an advent calendar complete with blue boxes and of course diamonds. Coming in at a whopping £104,000 and four feet tall, just four of these calendars were made by Tiffany & Co. Which means that, whilst it would be undeniably wonderful to wake up on Christmas morning with an £11,000 diamond present, the likelihood of that happening is very slim.

Luckily, there’s a solution. Fashion insiders’ favourite jewellery brand, Missoma, has just launched its first ever jewellery advent calendar and it’s so good it’s already got a wait-list of over 300 people.

The brand, loved by Meghan Markle, Gigi Hadid, Margot Robbie and most recently Kate Middleton on her royal tour of Pakistan, has become something of a cut classic, offering up simple gold pieces that elevate an everyday look. Missoma collaborated with influencer, Lucy Williams back in 2015 (this is the collaboration responsible for everyone wearing those horn shaped gold necklaces) and have since gone on to launch two more highly successful collections

The calendar, which contains 12 Missoma treats, is a real celebration of the brand’s most popular pieces including gold necklaces, bracelets, earrings, a trinket tray and a celestial looking hair slide that you can’t buy outside of the calendar.

Coming in at a much more reasonable price than that luxe Tiffany option, the Missoma advent calendar costs £395. However, with the total cost of the pieces in the calendar coming in at £641, it’s definitely worth the investment.
