Think dressing up in reds and greens for Christmas is gauche? Not with these pretty little things from the Piaget Possession collection

Most folks break out their best baubles during the festive season, and let's face it; they're usually something glittering with icy solitaires. Of course, diamonds are dandy and all but they're decidedly safe since you really can't go wrong with them no matter your choice of outfit. Say aye if you're guilty of glamming up in exactly this formula (you know who you are).

So in the spirit of Christmas and its boldly shaded colour palette, forgo your safe options and ring it in with fine jewellery pieces in red and green à la the Piaget Possession collection. Perfectly festive in bright scarlet, the red carnelian-decorated pair of matching necklace and bangles is the way to go, amped up with a pink gold Possession watch finished with bright red calfskin straps — or in white satin if you prefer. And if you're up to playing the colour game like an ace, layer it on with three Possession bangles at once, one with brilliantly green malachite stones, another set with black onyx cabochons, and the last embellished along its sleek curves with a scattering of diamonds. Yes, it is diamonds, but just a small touch will do. Now thou shalt go forth brilliantly with a bang.

The Possession collection is available at Piaget boutiques.
