Who of us 40+ didn’t love Diamonds are for Ever with Sean Connery as James Bond. Who did not admire Blofeld’s white Persian cat wearing the diamond collar? We all secretly sympathized with Tiffany when on board of the cruise-ship, she asked Bond how they would get the diamonds back.
I can’t remember what initially started my fascination for diamonds. It may have been the sparkle of the two small diamonds on my granny’s engagement ring, the solitaire of my mom’s engagement ring, or the fake diamonds on the Bambi brooch I had as a kid. I loved diamonds long before I learned in my geology class that diamonds are the hardest thing on Earth. Chemically, diamonds are charcoal that experienced extremely high pressure.
Anyhow, when I got married in the 90s, I wanted a tension set diamond wedding band.This style is an evergreen classic (see first photo in this post).
I don’t know a woman who does not love the sparkle of diamonds. Nevertheless, most women wear their diamonds just in form of a wedding band and engagement ring on a daily basis (see first two photos of this post). This restriction is a big mistake style-wise as diamonds look great with every outfit.
Just think of the tennis bracelet (photo above). It has its name for a reason. Why only wear it to the opera? Wear it with a white T-shirt, jeans and sneakers. Wear it to brunch or on casual Friday to work with straight jeans, and a short sleeve twinset. What about wearing a tennis bracelet with a sleeveless floral dress in summer? Such outfits are so effortlessly chic and affordable too. Santa, did you read this? Hint, hint!
The sparkle of diamond studs or not too long diamond earrings enlightens your face. Who could count wrinkles when the diamonds break the light in all colors of the rainbow? Any diamonds close to your face (studs, earring, necklace, brooch) have the same effect.
I agree with Isaac Mizhari that every women needs diamonds. However, I disagree with him on waiting for inheriting them. Instead buy diamond jewelry for yourself! You deserve them and they are affordable, even on a budget with various payment, size and quality options.
