With only a handful of shopping days left until the big day arrives I'm sure there are plenty of people out there still frantically hunting the high street for the perfect gifts to complete their Christmas shopping.
Not wanting to be too smug but I'm finished and wrapped! Which means that I have plenty of time to appreciate the wonderful atmosphere whilst indulging in a spot of Christmas window shopping ... with a glass of fizz of course!
Last week I was invited to my favourite jewellery shop in Newcastle, Northern Goldsmiths on Blackett Street with the solemn promise to Simon that my visit wouldn't cost him loads of money like my last visit did. You may remember that my last event at Goldsmiths ended in a proposal.
Simon probably would have a heart attack if he'd seen me heading straight to a particularly sparkly counter in the middle of the store to try on a £50,000 diamond ring. What a beauty! This would be the perfect gift to find under the tree on Christmas Day but unfortunately, after admiring it on my finger for a little while I had to reluctantly return it. I have a wedding to pay for!
Next on my very indulgent wish list was this stunning sapphire bracelet which was the most beautiful piece of jewellery I've ever tried on.
I hope Santa knows how good I've been this year!
I love browsing the glass cabinets in store, and saying Happy Christmas with Goldsmiths really is an enjoyable experience. If you are looking for the perfect gift for someone special I'd definitely recommend the store without hesitation, they looked after Simon brilliantly when he was picking out my engagement ring and everyone is so down to earth and friendly.
Of course, most of us can't afford £50,000 diamonds and sapphire bracelets so it's lucky that anyone can get the Goldsmiths experience as they have a beautiful collection of jewellery to suite any budget.
I can't wait to return after Christmas to pick out our wedding rings.
Let me know if you have any Goldsmiths pieces in your collection.
