Diamonds are forever, wherever

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.

The sparkle of diamonds is fascinating

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 ones 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.

No pressure, no diamonds. #gemstones Click To Tweet

Diamond wedding band

Anyhow, in the 1990s, tension set diamond wedding bands where a big thing. Thus, when I got married in the 90s, I wanted a tension set diamond wedding band like the one at the top of this post. This style is an evergreen classic. We didn’t have the money. My husband said that I would get one for our fifth anniversary, and he kept the promise.

Wear your diamonds every single day

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 photo of this post and photo above). This restriction is a big mistake style-wise as diamonds look great with every outfit.

Chris Evert wore her diamonds at work – on the tennis court

Just think of the tennis bracelet (photo above). It has its name for a reason. Chris Evert wore one in 1987 during the U.S. Open Tennis Championship, and lost it on the court. When she can wear it while working, you can do it too. 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!

Draw the attention to your face with diamond ear jewelry

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. Learn more on which earrings are best for you in the guide at the link.

Every woman needs diamonds

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.

Check out this online store to find the diamond piece(s) that up(s) your style from great to awesome. Wear them every day and the price-per-wear goes down fast. Over the years, your diamonds will turn out being much cheaper per wear than trendy costume jewelry you only wear one season.

Get diamonds to up your style, enjoy your diamonds and don’t save them for your heirs to sell them.
