Once upon a time, fine jewellery was the preserve of an older generation, but these days there is no shortage of cool designs to entice hip young things with an appetite for unusual gems.
Twenty-somethings with discerning tastes and their finger on the pulse of every new trend are among the toughest to please when it comes to Christmas. But despair not. We have lined up plenty of Christmas gift ideas for women that are the perfect marriage of fine jewellery and fashion.
Daughter of Andrew Grima, whose cult jewels were regularly flaunted on the swinging 60s scene in London, Francesca Grima has followed in her father’s footsteps, designing jewellery with serious street cred. Her retro cool “Invader II” necklace, with pixelated emeralds for eyes, is the perfect gift for girls with a taste for vintage memorabilia.
