Start Getting Christmas Ready – Jewellery Edition

With Christmas parties already underway, what better time to bring out your glitz and glam and delve into your jewellery box for everything sparkles and diamonds. After a tough year, it is now time to go all out and dress to impress. Take a look at some of our favourite ways to dress up an outfit this year for those all-important festivities.

With lots of products and services to offer, we are happy to help whatever you are after. Have a look at out full range of products and services here.

Statement Earrings

Statement earrings are a simple yet very glamours way to dress up any outfit. You will receive countless compliments when wearing this stand out piece. Can be worn with a hair-up look to show them off even more or let them subtly blend in with loose curls making them be seen when you turn around and flick your hair. A timeless piece that can be re-worn over again with different looks. They can be dressed up with bold necklaces or gemstone rings, or simply worn by themselves. As they say, simplicity is the key to elegance.


If there’s one way to stand out from the crowd, it’s by adding diamonds to your outfit. Whether this be a gorgeous pair of diamond earrings, a sophisticated diamond necklace, a dainty diamond bracelet or even a diamond brooch, you are sure to be glistening under the lights. They will add a glamourous touch to your outfit and are the perfect accessory for this year’s festive parties. Take a look at our collection of diamond jewellery here.


Specialising in antique vintage jewellery, it wouldn’t be a festive post without including brooches. Brooches are great for jazzing up you outfit for the festivities. They can be worn on any outfit whether this be a dress, shirt, or blazer, making it unique and adding a touch of originality to a classic look. Brooches are a simple addition that can be worn by anyone. They can be slightly simpler than wearing a statement piece of jewellery, and when wearing an antique piece, it is very rare someone will have the same! Brooches can also be used to hold together sashes or added onto hair pieces and hats. A great way to add some accessories without having to wear jewellery itself. We have a large selection of antique brooches in-store or have a look at what we have to offer here.

Gemstone Jewellery

Gemstone jewellery is a great way to add some colour to an outfit. Whether it’s some emeralds to match a green dress or some rubies to brighten up a black ensemble, with many different gemstones to choose from, you will be sure to fine one that suits what you are looking for. They are a versatile piece that can be out on rings, necklaces, earrings or bracelets, no matter how big or small, they will make any look more special. At McGowans Jewellers, we also specialise in gemstone jewellery and have a huge selection or pieces to choose from. Brighten up your outfit while keeping it’s glamourous touch this year and have a look at our selection of gemstone jewellery in-store (4 & 41 Argyll Arcade, Glasgow) or online here.
