If you thought your existing (and slightly-worrying) The Outnet.com-obsession couldn't get more out of hand, you might want to look way right about now; because we guarantee this news will set your heart aflutter.
With the launch of its annual holiday shop, which has saved us from many a gift-giving conundrum in the past, The Outnet has completely upped its bling-game for the festive season too.
As part of its Christmas offering and for the very first time, everyones favourite savvy-priced designer hot-spot has unveiled an exclusive jewellery collection of made up of stunning pieces by seven of today’s most celebrated designers that you won't be able to find anywhere else....
Going one-step further this season, The Outnet's beyond-beaut limited-edition jewellery collection will feature pieces developed exclusively for the site as well as classic styles reworked with a twist. Major highlights from the range include an iconic teardrop earring in a new, vibrant berry hue by legendary jewelry designer Kenneth Jay Lane, a statement chain mail bib necklace by DANNIJO, and playful animal rings by eclectic label Noir Jewellery.
Speaking of the hot collab, Lisa Salzer - the founder of one of our favourite jewellery labels, Lulu Frost - gushed: 'We’re thrilled to be collaborating with The Outnet for this exclusive Christmas collection. For this line I wanted to design pieces that were glamorous but also easy to wear. The festive season is such a busy time and I often find myself heading straight from the office to an evening event – these styles make for an easy day-to-night look. Throw your hair up with a pair of Art Deco-inspired crystal drop studs after hours or take one of the statement necklaces from a button-up collared shirt to a plunging neckline to feel effortlessly beautiful.'
If you weren't already completely sold on the capsule range, that ought to do it...
True to form, the prices are just as appealing as the gorgeous pieces themselves, ranging from a teeny £38 to a more hefty £325.
So, whether you're looking to treat your mum, a pal or (as we'd recommend) yourself this Christmas, you'll definitely want to take a peak at what The Outnet has to offer. For those of you who are already getting organised for Crimbo - and putting the rest of us to shame in the process - it'll please you to learn that the collection is available on site now.
To get you started, we've whittled down our absolute favourites that we can only dream of rocking this party season. Go on; take a look. Your inner magpie will thank you...
The chunky gold chain on this neck-candy instantly gives the ornate, Swarovski crystal clusters an edgy spin. We'll be rocking this with everything from our novelty Christmas jumpers to our failsafe LBD's for a touch of cool sparkle...
The deep, rich hue of these stunning earrings makes them look way more expensive than they actually are. Take a tip from the fash pack and rock them with an effortless updo, ripped boyfriend jeans and barely-there strap heels.
The ideal gift for even the most-fussy of friends, there's no way anyone could not like this royal blue lapis ring. Yep, it's a guaranteed people-pleaser.
Jewels don't come much more statement than these uh-mazing earrings and, get this; they're clip-ons. Meaning that everyone can get in on the gorgeous earring action regardless of having piercings. Yay!
Bring on that Christmas party, we say!
