2022 has seen an incredible amount of jewels pass through our hands and into yours. From some of the most glamorous and luxe pieces, to gorgeous gemstone delights and the fun and unusual, we feel like we are one step closer to completing jewellery bingo.
Most of our days at CLV HQ are spent lusting over the ones that could have been, dreaming of those jewels that we wish hadn't sold so quickly so that we could have more time to drool over them. The team have selected their top jewel picks from 2022 that they are still dreaming about today.
Danielle has selected all things feminine and full of gemstones. The Victorian Celestial Moon and Stars Pearl Necklace was an easy choice, the level of interest and detail in this piece is simply magical and anything celestial always gets her heart beating.
The Georgian Sugarloaf Moonstone and Ruby Halo Ring is such a sumptuous piece, and the beauty behind the Opal Charm is something she is still thinking about.
Daniel's top 3 picks is definitely inspired by statement rings. The 1950's Ruby Class Ring is so interesting, a sentimental gift to someone graduating from university or college. Another interesting piece is the Victorian Enamel & Diamond Star Mourning Ring, a dramatic piece and a symbol of the mourning for a passed loved one.
The French Art Deco Sapphire & Diamond Ring has been a firm favourite amongst us all, but felt extra special to Daniel. It's investment worthy luxe is what makes it such a rare fine example of 1920s French jewellery.
2022 has definitely been the year for rings, as Shannon has also chosen 3 rings in her top picks. The Lavish 9ct Gold Sapphire, Emerald & Diamond Multi- Gemstone Ring is her favourite jewel from this year, it has such an unusual look to it and its masculine size mixed with the variety of gemstones makes it such a exciting statement piece.
Whilst not being one for sparkles, the Vintage 18ct Gold Citrine & Diamond Cluster Halo Ring has also been a favourite. The rich warm tones of the citrine gemstone pairs beautifully with other gold jewellery and neutral toned clothing. The Vintage 9ct Rose Gold Knot Ring also is a more unusual piece, lending itself as a perfect jewel for everyday wear.
THE CHARLIE LUXE JEWEL OF 2022
To complete our top 10 jewel, we thought we would choose our total favourite piece of jewellery from this year. After *much* discussion, we all decided that this Fabulous Art Deco Natural 7.4ct Sapphire & Diamond Ring In Platinum has been a unanimous favourite amongst us all.
We may be cheating slightly by picking something that hasn't sold yet, but everything about this ring is just so dreamy it just simply had to feature in our top 10 selection. Danielle obviously loves the science behind the sapphire cabochon gemstone. Daniel is a fan of how rare and unusual it is, whilst Shannon adores how unique this jewel is without being too fussy.
