Nicole joined Azendi just before Christmas 2019 at our brand new store in the gorgeous market town of Beverley. Nicole has helped to quickly establish the store as a destination for jewellery lovers with her welcoming team and excellent advice - here she talks us through some of her favourite gift choices for Christmas.
It’s coming up to my year anniversary at the Beverley store, and what a year it has been! Unfortunately we had to close due to the pandemic during the lockdowns but the time spent in store has been amazing and I look forward to the next year.
The saying goes ‘choose a job you love and you will never work a day in your life’; I have been very fortunate to find that job and it helps when you work with such an amazing team. I am really looking forward to returning to the shop on the 2nd December to enjoy the Christmas period and help our customers find that perfect gift, whether it’s for themselves or a loved one. Here I will share my top five gift suggestions, but believe me it’s hard for me to narrow it down to only five!
I can’t pick just one item here, I love the full collection. The midnight black brilliant cut stones are balanced by the beautifully warm tones of the 18ct rose gold vermeil, making every piece a statement whether worn alone or partnered with matching designs. I am gradually adding to my collection and next on my list is the Adjustable Bracelet. Midnight Rose Adjustable Bracelet £95
This Rose & Silver Textured Adjustable Bracelet is not only one of my favourites, it’s my friends' favourite, it’s my mother’s favourite and it’s our customers' favourite. What everyone loves about this bracelet is the fact that it is adjustable - you simply slide the special toggle to tighten and loosen the bracelet. So it will fit all wrists and suits everyone. With the textured beads giving it some sparkle, it catches everyone’s eye. Silver & Rose Beads Adjustable Bracelet £50
Again the full collection is another favourite! The colour that I have and wear daily is the black agate but each different gemstone is really striking. The deep green malachite is a popular choice with the beautiful banding in the gemstone making each piece truly unique. The stones in this collection are faceted for a gentle sparkle as they catch the light. Malachite Pendant £75
Now who doesn’t love a hoop earring? These hoops feel weightless making them incredibly comfortable to wear all day. I always get compliments when I wear mine. They are available in four different sizes and a choice of sterling silver, gold vermeil or rose gold vermeil. They are a perfect price too so they will make a great stocking filler this Christmas. Silver 4cm Flexi Hoops £20
For a truly personal gift you can create a one-of-a-kind necklace with our personalised sterling silver and gold vermeil Name Necklaces. I always wanted my own version of the famous 'Carrie' necklace after watching 'Sex and the City' and now I’m finally getting one from Santa this year! With a choice of colours and lengths it is easy to create a unique necklace for your loved one. I know that I cannot wait to receive mine. Personalised Name Necklace from £45
