Xmas decorations to gasp at! A world record diamond encrusted bauble
What is the most expensive Christmas tree decoration to ever be made? The record was made by Hallmark Jewellers when they released a special Christmas tree bauble that cost as much as an average sized home in a small town.

The Christmas bauble was made with 1,578 diamonds and is crafted from 18 carat white gold. However, that’s not all. It is also decorated with two red rings that are studded with 118 rubies. This incredible decoration is valued at £82,000. It took over a year to make and it took jewellers over 130 hours just to set the gems. It was the idea of Mark Hussy, who is the owner of the Hallmark Jewellery business. Before this one, the previous world record for the most expensive bauble, as listed in the Guinness Book of World Records, was £26,874.

Nicholas has designed and made bespoke Christmas baubles in the past, though not quite this value!
 
The world’s most expensive Christmas tree
The most expensive Christmas tree in the world, according to the Guinness Book of World Records was erected at a luxury hotel in Abu Dhabi in 2010. Instead of strands of tinsel, the tree was decorated with precious stones, diamond baubles and sparkling lights. In total, the tree and all of its decorations is thought to be worth £7 million!

The jewellery, watches, necklaces and earrings decorating the tree were supplied by Khalifa Khouri, the owner of the Style Gallery. The tree held 181 gems in total, including sapphires, emeralds, pearls and diamonds.

Nicholas has created and made a Christmas fairy in silver – for that extra-special tree-topper. What ‘Wylde’ festive decoration would you wish to be made? There’s still time, but don’t delay as the Christmas Countdown has begun!
The world’s most expensive Christmas tree star
The World’s Most Glamorous Christmas Tree Star (yes, it’s actually called that), is studded with 287 diamonds and has a value of £615,000!

At the centre of the decoration is a five carat flawless diamond, which can also be detached and turned into a necklace. It was sold off with donations going to the Princes’ Trust in 2015.

Even if your pockets are not quite so large, Nicholas can still design and create for you a unique Christmas decoration from precious metals and gems for that extra-special festive sparkle. Contact us today!
 

Picks from the Wylde Box: Staff chose the item they’d most want this Christmas...

We asked our staff members: “If you could choose any Nicholas Wylde designed jewellery to find in your Christmas stocking, which item would it be and why?”

We received some jolly interesting replies and thought we would share some of them with you for this special, festive extra edition newsletter. 
Merry Christmas to all!

Amy’s Choice
Amy is the Administration Manger for our Bath store and has chosen a bespoke item that holds a particular significance for her - an 18ct white gold, diamond encrusted pendant, created in celebration of the annual Bristol Hot Air Balloon Festival, held every summer.

Amy said: “The item that I would like to find in my stocking this year is the gorgeous hot air balloon pendant we have on display in our Bristol branch. I fell in love with it the first time I saw it. My husband and I have been together for 6 years; we moved to Bristol together, bought our first house here and basically started our lives here together. The first year we were here we went to the balloon fiesta and it was amazing, to me this pendant symbolises our journey we started here together and I have been asking for it for a while.”

There’s still time if hubby is paying attention!

Laura’s Choice
Laura is one of our professional and valued Sales Consultants in our Bath store and has chosen a stunning platinum, diamond 1.50ct eternity ring for her festive pick.

“My husband and I had our little boy last year. Ever since, I have angling after an eternity ring to complete my collection of diamonds. Working here I seem to fall in love with a new one every few months and the diamonds get larger every time! This ring, however, has been my favourite for a while, which is why I would love to find it in my stocking this year.”
