Christmas with the Auree Team

We caught up with the Auree A-team to discover their seasonal favourites and how they do Christmas. Discover the team’s personal picks below.


 AMELIA | FOUNDER

What are your favourite Auree pieces for the festive season?

Easy. The new dovehouse hoops are just PERFECT. A hoop, tick. Sparkly, tick. And everyone thinks they are diamonds, tick. I also love our Iseo bracelet in London Topaz (my favourite gemstone) and the Como Necklace – perfect for layering and the brushed finish makes it a bit different too.

Do you have any Christmas traditions?

My parents lived in New York when they first got married and we’ve stuck with the tradition of salmon and cream cheese bagels for Christmas Day breakfast which they started when living there. With a lot of champagne too (obviously!).

What’s the best/worst Christmas present you ever received?

Worst was a jewellery holder in the shape of a red plastic high heel shoe (it’s hard to actually convey the extent of hideousness) which was won by a family member in a raffle.. this shoe is now a family joke and gets wrapped up and given to someone different every year… (with the challenge being to wrap it in a way that people can’t immediately guess that it’s the shoe!)

What was your Auree highlight this year?

Celebrating our fifth birthday earlier this year. It’s been an exciting time and feel very luck to have a brilliant team, wonderful workshops, sensational stockists, and most importantly, you – our loyal and fabulous customers. Thank you.

Are you planning any New Year’s resolutions?

YES loads. My main one being to have dinner parties every week. Hmmm let’s see how long that lasts…


 LALLY | MARKETING DIRECTOR

What are your favourite Auree pieces for the festive season?

My all time favourite are the Como Earrings, I love any excuse to wear these, be it a Christmas party or a Summer wedding. I also love my Bali Lapis Lazuli Necklace, which was a Christmas present a couple of years ago and my Brompton Bangle which always gets so many compliments.

Do you have any Christmas traditions?

We go to Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve, and then in the morning all cram into my parents’ bed with our giant dog Bear and a cup of tea, before a blustery walk on the beach.

What’s the best/worst Christmas present you ever received?

My best is easy – I still remember coming back from school aged 11 and being told there was a surprise – my first guess was a Christmas tree and then I randomly said “puppy” – my parents gave the game away by getting cross with my sister for telling me when she hadn’t actually, it was just a lucky guess. Worst – a second hand swimsuit from the charity shop (my father still doesn’t understand why I didn’t want to wear it).

What was your Auree highlight this year?

Very hard to choose but our new Barcelona Necklace being featured as the Stella Magazine jewellery gift guide centrepiece was not bad.

Are you planning any New Year’s resolutions?

There’s a fair few – to do small but thoughtful gestures for friends more often and to be less reliant on my phone for a start.


BELLA | MARKETING & OPERATIONS ASSISTANT

What are your favourite Auree pieces for the festive season?

The Olivera Hoops were the first pair of Auree earrings I was given – I love chunky earrings and also have my eye on the Knightsbridge Hoops. The Barcelona Birthstone necklace in moonstone is also on my Christmas wishlist.

Do you have any Christmas traditions?

Every year my brothers and I open our stockings, without a doubt, at 7am on the end of my parents’ bed (much to my parents horror as they are desperately dreaming that we would grow out of the early start). After a huge breakfast, champagne and smoked salmon in front of the fire, we go for a long walk before Christmas lunch commences.

What’s the best/worst Christmas present you ever received?

Worst – a hideous hooded floor length towel dress. Best – flights around the world for my gap year travels.

What was your Auree highlight this year?

Meeting the Collyer Twins at our Duck & Dry event – I’ve followed them on Instagram for years.

Are you planning any New Year’s resolutions?

I usually come up with one much too late…


GERTIE | SECURITY

 

What are your favourite Auree pieces for the festive season?

Anything in Labrador – ite.

Iseo Labradorite & Gold Vermeil Bracelet Iseo Labradorite & Gold Vermeil Bracelet

Regular Price: £95.00

£45.00

Do you have any Christmas traditions?

I am allowed upstairs on Christmas day morning, which is not just a Christmas tradition but the highlight of my year.

What’s the best/worst Christmas present you ever received?

Best was (nearly) a whole turkey which just hopped off the side in the kitchen onto the floor. Sadly this was thwarted rather rapidly before I had a chance to try it so maybe its now my worst too.

What was your Auree highlight this year?

Two new furry friends who have moved into the office next door.

Are you planning any New Year’s resolutions?

I’m going to REALLY try and stop stealing things from Amelia’s desk. Especially after the incident where I stole two Russian Wedding Rings and hid them in my bed which everyone seemed to get quite cross about.
