Why Should I Buy Diamond Jewelry?

Many people associate diamonds with marriage and church bells, so it can be hard to break free of the idea that diamonds symbolize romance. Just like everything else, times have changed, so there is no reason to leave out this gorgeous gemstone when you’re accessorizing.

The new year has left us with a lot to think about when it comes to new styles and trends. Instead of feeling overwhelmed, go back to basics by rocking diamonds. This stunning stone has always been a girl’s best friend. And just like any best friend, diamonds won’t let you down!

What are the Different Types of Diamonds?

 If you love sparkling diamonds, but the lack of color just isn’t doing it for you, it’s time to consider the growing trend of colored diamonds. In the past, you would only see these unique gemstones on celebs or wealthy stars, but times are changing. These vibrant stones are rapidly gaining popularity among today’s jewelry lovers. While deep blue, vibrant red, and beautiful green remain popular, also consider brilliant yellows and rich champagne, blushing pink, and mysterious purple.

What Type of Diamond Jewelry Should I Wear?

In the past, diamonds were usually solitaires in a setting or used to accent other gemstones. Now designers enhance the beauty of larger diamonds with multiple mounting choices and a variety of metals. Stylists find unique and exciting ways to incorporate diamonds into their designs.

Many people are afraid that another diamond ring will compete with their engagement ring. To prevent this, wear a completely different style or get a colored diamond! Also, remember that you have two hands! Go ahead and sport your new diamond ring on the right instead of the left.

How Can I Wear Diamond Jewelry?

Something Borrowed

No, we aren’t talking about wedding accessories. We are talking about designs! Vintage-style jewelry is coming back and looking better than ever. Diamonds in an Art Deco style will stand out from other jewelry because of its edge. The linear and symmetrical style complements more modern designs.

If you don’t like fixed lines and symmetrical designs, then go with an heirloom-style look. Diamonds in a vintage brooch or a delicate bracelet look great and provide a change of pace in your wardrobe.

The Classics Never Get Old

Even with all these brilliant styles and colors of diamonds, going back to the basics is never a bad idea.

Classics like diamond stud earrings go with any outfit and any season. Plus, earrings give you an instant face-lift. A classic diamond tennis bracelet is also exquisite and versatile. It’s all about your personality!
