Forget chocs. Indulge your beloved – or yourself – with a jewellery advent calendar this year.

Everyone loves a daily chocolate in the run up to Christmas, courtesy of our advent calendars – an annual habit we vow never to give up no matter how advanced our years. But what if the treat residing behind those little doors was more dazzling and somewhat longer lasting than a powdery chocolate bite?

Jewellery advent calendars are all the rage and getting better year on year. Sure, they might be more expensive than a Cadbury’s affair – but for the bling lover, they also offer great savings too. These eight are currently topping our wish-list. Hint hint.
