Are you still working on finishing your Christmas shopping? If you are looking for gifts for her and coming up blank, a necklace is a brilliant choice as a gift. For your girlfriend, wife, friend or even a gift for your mum. Here we show you 8 necklaces to wow her.

So why is a necklace a good choice? Jewellery in general is the perfect gift because it is something we don't always buy for ourselves. Yet is a small luxury that is still affordable. It doesn't take up much space, but you can never have too much.

And as far as a necklace goes, it's not as personal as a ring in terms of taste and size. But is that little bit more special than a bracelet, since it is often the centrepiece of an outfit.

So here goes - our top 8 picks for necklaces to wow her this Christmas or any other occasion.

Ania Haie Modern Circle Necklace

One of our most popular designs from Ania Haie, this necklace is available in both solid sterling silver and 14 carat gold plated silver. We love gold for this season, which is right on trend and adds a touch of luxury to any outfit.
