While we all love a supermarket advent calendar filled with our favourite choccies (who else has bought and ravaged at least one Sainsbury’s set?), it seems as though every brand out there is offering up their own advent calendar, too. From skincare and makeup-filled bounties to 24 days of candles and baubles, the choices on offer feel limitless.
Gifting an advent calendar to a loved one is a kind festive gesture but since it's also the season for practising extra self-care, there’s no shame in buying one for yourself, too. Brands like Astrid & Miyu and Missoma have created jewellery advent calendars that will add a dose of daily excitement and a little extra sparkle to December. Better yet, you’ll be wearing these accessories throughout 2024. Scroll on for our eight favourite jewellery advent calendars that we've spotted this year already.
Astrid & Miyu has brought out not only one but three different advent calendars this season. This 12-day option is the most similar to the sell-out style from last year, so we’re expecting it to be just as popular this time around. 50% of the pieces inside are exclusive new products while the rest include bestsellers such as the iconic Cosmic Dome Hoops and essential stacking staples. It’s also available in both gold and silver options meaning jewellery fans of both tones can enjoy.
London-based jewellery brand Missoma’s advent calendar is sure to be at the top of many people’s wish lists after selling out last year. This time, two varieties are available in both gold and silver with 12 days of treats inside the jewel-shaped jewellery box. Included are a handful of bestsellers such as the Mini Pyramid Charm Hoops, Lucy Williams Tiny Orb Hoops, Lucy Williams Armour Cuff, Interstellar Drop Bracelet, Pave Star Bracelet, Prism Studs, Pave Huggies, Double Bar Studs, Zenyu Gemstone Drop Earrings, Lucy Williams Tiny Horn Necklace, Harris Reed North Star Necklace and Bobble Chain Choker. And (take a breath) this impressive line-up racks up to a staggering £917, meaning you’ll actually be saving yourself £522 by buying the calendar if using the girl math logic.
For those who love silver jewellery, the Joma Jewellery calendar is a treasure trove of cool-toned treats. Housing 12 pieces including rings, heart pendant necklaces, bracelets and more, the keepsake calendar is worth over £260.
Of course, Pandora, the biggest jewellery brand in the world, has unveiled a much talked about advent calendar. With 12 boxes of bracelets, rings, necklaces and more, it's sure to be a bestseller in no time with pieces totalling more than £550.
Alongside the gold advent calendar option is a sparkling silver style. Housed in a similar box, from the outside you’re unlikely to be able to spot the difference but inside is packed with 12 days of cooler-toned treats such as the Lucy Williams Tiny Orb Hoop Earrings, Lucy Williams Armour Cuff, Interstellar Drop Bracelet, Star Bracelet, Mini Claw Charm Hoops, Silver Pave Huggies, Double Bar Studs, Chubby Hex Huggies, Chunky Claw Ear Cuff, Lucy Williams Tiny Horn Necklace, Harris Reed North Star Pearl Necklace, and the Bobble Chain Choker, all handcrafted from recycled sterling silver. The total value when not in the calendar is £803, so again you can consider it a saving.
If it’s luxury jewellery you’re after, then Astrid & Miyu may be your best bet. Unveiling a 14K solid gold advent calendar complete with five pieces including bracelets, necklaces and earrings adorned with semi-precious white topaz stones, it’s pretty pricey yet perfect for those who like the finer things in life. Buying each item separately will set you back £1,325, so it seems like the calendar is also a bit of a saving too.
Gold jewellery fans will be happy to see there’s no short supply of calendar options for them this year as this Grove & Vae style joins the long lineup. Housing bestselling earrings, rings and necklaces from the brand, including the Maia Gold Malachite Necklace and Marcie Open Pave Ring, the calendar is packed with pretty pieces that are sure to upgrade anyone’s jewellery box. If bought separately without the festive feeling these pieces would total £679, so consider it another saving.
If you’re after a treat every day in December then this mammoth calendar is sure to do the trick. With a silver or gold (depending on which option you go for) surprise behind each door, you’ll have enough necklaces, earrings and bracelets to see you through the whole of 2024 and below. Similarly to the 12 day option, 50% of the items are exclusive to the calendar while the rest of the pieces include the brand's bestsellers. If buying without the calendar gift box, this option would set you back £1,340, so clearly it's better to buy in bulk.
