How to Choose the Ideal Pearl Jewellery Gift


As specialists in handcrafted freshwater pearl jewellery, here at the Claudia Bradby workshop we’re sometimes asked for a helping hand when it comes to choosing the perfect pearl jewellery gift.
Claudia has created so many unique and elegant jewellery pieces now and if choosing for someone else, it’s normal to want some reassurance you’re choosing a design they’ll love.
Our Most Loved Christmas Edit is a good place to start and includes our most popular pieces and sometimes referred to as ‘safe’ jewellery options which everyone adores.
If you’re looking for something a little more personal this Christmas, we’ve put together a handy guide below.

A Gift for the Adventurer:

Claudia has designed many jewellery pieces for adventurous women who want to live life to the full and storytelling underpins many of her most loved designs. These designs will send those you love out with positive affirmations, and touchstones to connect back in with you.
Take Claudia’s signature, and iconic, The World is Your Oyster Collective – this pearl necklace, bracelet and earring set has become a bestseller for its easy-to-wear design and inspiring sentiment.
For beach lovers who dream of time by the coast in the sunshine – Claudia’s Beach Lover’s Bracelet Stack with intricate pearl and sterling silver shell combination will give someone special all the warmth and motivation while waiting for summer.

A Gift for the Traditional Fans
Pearls are the oldest known gemstone and have been worn by some of the most iconic women in the world from Queen Elizabeth the first, via Coco Chanel, Sarah Jessica Parker and our own Queen Elizabeth the second. Rooted in tradition with a modern feel we can recommend our Biography Couture Range for lovers of all things traditional.

A Gift for the Chic and Elegant
Inspired by the style icon Angelina Jolie, and worn by Dame Helen Mirren, these gifts are ideal if you have a glamourous someone special in your life:
The Duo White Pearl Studs offer a unique double pearl earring look – a chic and sophisticated alternative to the enduring pearl stud.
While the Angelina Pearl Lariat Necklace (named after Angelina Jolie) is loved by all ages for it’s ability to add a subtle touch of glam to any outfit whatever the occasion.

A Gift for Those Who Like the Quiet Life
Claudia designed these pieces to act as touchstones of sorts, and to allow for some quiet mindfulness. Something she personally finds in swimming outside, immersed in nature.
Browse the new Meditative Range and you’ll find gifts ideal for lovers of yoga, long walks, breathtaking scenery and anything that gives them a touch of calm.
The Meditative Pearl Spinner Necklace is our hero piece of this collection and acts a touchstone, which is known to calm the mind as well as being a striking piece of jewellery.

The Finishing Touch – Real Art Handwritten Christmas Card

New for Christmas 2021 is the first of our real art gift cards from Lila Vail, a talented artist currently in her last year at Chelsea college of art and design.
We love her interpretation of how our jewellery can make you feel when it is given as a special gift for Christmas, and how she has woven our pearls and chains into this beautiful Christmas card.
Give your gift a special and even more personal touch with this elegant card. Inspired by festive pearls, a member of our small team will hand write your message inside. Simply add to your order at the checkout.

On behalf of Claudia Bradby and the team, we’d like to wish you a very Merry Christmas.
