Today is Christmas Day, and I wanted to take a moment to send my best holiday wishes to everyone who has read, commented, shared, and enjoyed articles here at The Court Jeweller this year. No matter how you celebrate, I truly hope that this holiday season has brought some joy, light, and laughter into your lives—just as all of you always bring brightness and cheer into mine! I can never quite express how truly thankful I am to those of you who join me here each day. This website celebrates its ninth birthday on New Year’s Day, and it wouldn’t have made it a fraction of that time without dedicated and wonderful readers like all of you.
I’m rounding up a few royal Christmas cards in this article to bring us some extra holiday fun today, and tomorrow, we’ll begin our countdown of the best royal jewels worn in 2022! (I’m not sure when I’ll be able to cover the British royal jewels at Sandringham this year, but feel free to discuss them in the comments of this article.) Until then, I’m hoping that each of you has a happy and healthy day, and a wonderful tomorrow as well.
