A note from founder Claire Simpson: “The Ritz, shown here in charcoal grey, is a must have for any hat loving girl this Christmas. It is Champagne & Muddy Boots best selling style and it’s easy to see why – the Ritz can be worn with a glamorous outfit or can subtly add glamour to your outfit over the festive period. But it can also be worn with jeans and a chunky jumper for Christmas drinks at the pub and then continues to work with any outfit, smart or casual, throughout the year. The Ritz is such a versatile style making it the perfect present.”
2. Sylvia Kerr Blenheim Tassel Neck Chain £568.00.
Sylvia Kerr says: “I wanted to create a luxurious, extravagant piece of keepsake jewellery, so versatile, that it would become the centrepiece of your jewellery box.
“I spent many hours sculpting the horse bit detailing to create something which had alluring smooth curves – an elegant piece to feel and wear.
“I chose to create the piece with a 36-inch long chain, which allows you to wear it at full length, doubled around the neck or wrapped luxuriously around the wrist. The clip-on tassel is the finishing touch to a beautifully tactile piece of jewellery. It’s human nature to play with your jewellery, so all my creations feel beautiful to the touch and to wear against your skin.”
