The party season is nearly upon us and whether your diary is overflowing with festive get-togethers or you have one New Year’s Eve gathering with friends and loved ones that you’re looking forward to, one thing is for sure - a few well chosen sparkles can take your outfit to the next level.

At The Centre you’ll find jewellery to suit every taste and budget, from investment pieces that are destined to become family heirlooms to on-trend statement necklaces which will revamp your look for £25 and under. Here are a few of our top picks for Christmas 2019, all available from retailers at The Centre.

Why not pop along to M&S where their AW19 range includes vintage inspired treasures as well as cool contemporary looks. There’s a beautiful platinum plated diamanté oval pavé ring with pale pink stone for £19.50, a pair of tortoiseshell fan earrings for £9.50 as well as on-trend leopard print textured studs for just £5.

Be sure to dazzle at your next formal event with a pair of platinum plated oval studs with faceted blue stone for £19.50. These sparkling stone earrings have a classic vintage vibe and come from the M&S Skin Kind jewellery range which goes beyond normal hypoallergenic standards to be even kinder to sensitive skin.

For a coordinating dash of vintage glamour, check out the faux sapphire cocktail ring from Debenhams for £20 – it’s silver plated and features a vivid blue stone with dazzling pavé surround. (Image 2

Coloured stones are a great way of adding character to a piece, both for costume jewellery and luxe jewellery alike. If you prefer cooler tones H.Samuel have a rhodium plated silver pendant with an aquamarine stone for £59.99. The circular cut gives the pendant a vintage aesthetic, ideal for anyone partial to a little retro glamour and the central stone is framed with a set of 0.02 carat diamonds for added festive sparkle.

For a contemporary twist on vintage styles don’t miss River Island’s AW19 range of jewellery - from stackable rings and chokers to lariat bracelets and ear cuffs. Our favourite this party season is a pair of emerald green diamanté statement earrings, £12, which have been given a modern makeover with an oversized 80’s design making them the talking point of any ensemble.

Sometimes when it comes to jewellery, more is more and this season Accessorize has summed this trend up in two words – crystal drenching. We spotted a gorgeous statement collar in a rainbow hue of stones which epitomised this look; this gorgeous, stand-out necklace for £25 features clusters of multi-shaped gems in different shades and, thanks to its design complements everything from a simple tee and jeans to a little black dress! (Image 5) Alternatively, if you’re looking for something a little more minimalist with cool pared back style, Accessorize has you covered - why not opt for a contemporary pair of skinny mixed-shape short-drop silver-tone earrings for £7.

If you’re looking for cocktail rings in chic modern designs, you might find just what you’re after at Swarovski - from open rings and faux stacking rings to fully cut-crystal rings and even rings with dangling charms. Why not add timeless polish to any outfit with Swarovski’s on-trend rose-gold tone plated ring for £89 – the banded open-shank design features a frosting of sparkling clear crystal pavé making it this season’s fashion forward accessory. (Image 7)

For jewellery that is both stylish and playful, take a look at Swarovski’s naughty and nice collection - perfect for the festive season. ‘Nice’ pieces feature clear crystals in a silver-toned rhodium-plated setting and ‘Naughty’ ones showcase black crystal in rose gold tone plated setting. Why not opt for their refined yet daring Y-shaped necklace for £99, with its on-trend feather motifs and black crystal pavé, it will add a fashionable touch to any evening ensemble. (Image 8)

When your outfit calls for a special piece that will elevate your whole look and take it to the next level, take a peek at Pandora’s beautiful array of jewellery. Their geometric collier necklace in sterling silver from the Timeless Elegance collection, £100, is a real showstopper featuring alternating pear and square shaped cubic zirconia in elevated claw settings to allow for more sparkle and brilliance.

Alternatively, why not indulge yourself with something from Pandora’s Celestial collection, inspired by the mystery of the night sky and the brilliance of starlight. Their star bracelet, £70, features irregularly-shaped sterling silver stars embellished with round cubic zirconia stones bound together by pavé bars for a delicate, whimsical piece perfect for a New Year’s Eve soirée.
