Christmas Collection

Welcome to Habibi’s Christmas Jewelry Collection!

Christmas is such a wonderful time of year, perhaps especially here in Riga, Latvia! As the days become shorter it’s time to enjoy the beautiful lights which adorn trees and buildings alike, and also hopefully to get out into the crisp, sparkling snow.

You may not know it, but Riga is generally acknowledged to be the home of the first Christmas tree. If you are fortunate enough to visit our beautiful city, you will find a plaque in the Old Town which commemorates the first ever known Christmas tree back in the year 1510. It can be difficult to prove something that happened so long ago, but the plaque is next to the House of Blackheads, home to a guild of professional merchants and traders that was formed in the 14th century, remaining active in Latvia right up to the middle of the 20th century. They were known for their twice-yearly holiday celebrations, including the Christmas and New Year season, when the guild put a fir tree in the square, decorated it with paper flowers, sang and danced, and then set the tree on fire. The guild has document showing that this happened for the first time in 1510, and so it very well might be the first recorded Christmas tree.

In keeping with tradition, we at Habibi have created our own range of Christmas tree earrings and pendants. Our petite Christmas trees are made using Swarovski crystal and sterling silver. Choose between fern, emerald, white or vitrail, and give someone special a piece of Riga history.

 

We also offer earrings and pendants in a range of seasonal designs – choose from the cutest Swarovski pearl snowmen, classy Christmas baubles, sparkling snowballs or clear crystal snowflakes, not forgetting festive gift box earrings and pendants.
