There was a time when advent calendars would be purchased at the end of November and would be of the edible variety. If you were very lucky it was a Thornton’s one with your name iced onto a large chocolate slab saved only for Christmas morning. The 2019 version of advent calendars are somewhat different.
On 22 October, jewellery giant Tiffany & Co launched its very own version of an advent calendar complete with blue boxes and of course diamonds. Coming in at a whopping £104,000 and four feet tall, just four of these calendars were made by Tiffany & Co. Which means that, whilst it would be undeniably wonderful to wake up on Christmas morning with an £11,000 diamond present, the likelihood of that happening is very slim.
