There are few greater feelings than seeing the joy and delight on a loved one’s face when they find a gorgeous piece of fine jewellery beneath the tree on Christmas morning. Except, perhaps, knowing that in the process of providing said joy and delight you also secured your own piece of glittering jewellery absolutely free of charge.
This Black Friday, fine jewellery brand Chupi will be offering customers an unrivalled opportunity to gift one of its stunning handcrafted heirlooms while also taking home something special for themselves in the form of an intricately engraved gold coin worth up to £2,000.
Available both online and in-store, the offer is available in six tiers to customers spending £399 or more. The only question left, then, is which piece of beautiful Chupi jewellery will you gift them? Needless to say, we have a few ideas…
If you’re buying for a woman who isn’t into big bling but instead prefers small luxuries she can wear every day, Chupi’s range of talismanic necklaces and vintage style rings make for gifts to treasure. Take, for example, this elegant Crown of Luck diamond ring. Featuring six graduated round diamonds and a central marquise cut diamond set in polished 14 karat gold, it is simultaneously discreet and unusual and, dare we say it, makes for a brilliant alternative engagement ring.
Likewise, the organic form of Chupi’s Stars in the Sky necklace, formed of four classic diamonds set in a solid gold disc so smooth and polished as if to appear liquid, offers a unique take on classic good luck charms. The perfect gift to remind them that it is the small moments that matter most.
Perhaps, instead, it is ethics and sustainability that matter to them above all else. A strong believer in heirlooms and handing down jewellery through the generations, eponymous designer Chupi Sweetman uses only 100 per cent recycled gold and ensures all diamonds are either ethically certified or recycled, incorporating the former lives of these stones into the new tales her jewellery tells.
This is evidenced in the house’s best-selling Victorian Lucky Clover stud earrings, which feature six recycled diamonds per pair, set in 14 karat gold to form the classic symbol of good fortune. Gorgeous on their own but subtle enough to wear as part of a larger ear stack, they make an ideal gift for women who love to mix and match. So too, does this Evil Eye diamond necklace provide a perfect addition for those keen to try out the modern trend for necklace layering. Suspended from an 18” gold chain that falls just below the collarbone, the classic Turkish Evil Eye, said to offer luck and protection, is formed from an engraved 14 karat gold oval disc set with a recycled diamond.
Finally, if you want to splash out on something really special that will be treasured for lifetimes to come, Chupi’s signature selection of heirloom rings are designed for just that. Perfect for marking special anniversaries, birthdays, engagements and other milestone events, these are pieces designed to stand the test of time and be passed on to children and grandchildren.
Set in 14 karat white gold and featuring a 1ct oval lab-grown diamond flanked by six smaller lab-grown diamonds, this incredible Dewlight ring is at once modern and completely classic. A guaranteed show stopper she’ll love the moment she lays eyes on it. For fans of coloured stones, meanwhile, the deep green hue of this gorgeous tourmaline is brilliantly highlighted by a 1920s-inspired emerald cut which, when flanked by diamonds, takes on an Art Deco design symbolic of strength and independence.
