The limited edition Sparkly Christmas Huggies earrings come in Rose Gold, or yellow Gold or Silver and can be worn on their own for a subtle look, or you can loop on their matching dangling gem accessory for a glammed-up look. At $38.

Floral Knots also offer a customisation service if you can’t find anything to match the energy (or horoscope) of your friend. For example pink rose quartz gemstones are believed to attract love, while Moonstone is used to balance and cool down emotions and tension.
