1. The cocktail ring
Never mind diamond engagement rings (although they are, obviously, lovely!), a cocktail ring isn't anything more symbolic than a self-bought treat to be trotted out on special occasions like the little black dress of the jewellery box. Of all the diamond rings, it's the cocktail ring that takes a simple outfit to the next level, oozes chic and lavishes the eyes of the jealous but adoring beholder.
2. Diamond stud earrings
A superb choice for daily wear (after all, what good are great diamonds if you never get to wear them?), diamond stud earrings are as classic as Paris' Champs-Elysees. A real style staple for women of any age who want to enjoy their diamonds on a daily basis.
3. The diamond tennis bracelet
For ladies with no shortage of buying power, a classic diamond tennis bracelet of round brilliant cut diamonds in 18ct gold setting is one of the most stylish ways to show off those gems. Plus, in the cold winter months after Christmas, a diamond tennis bracelet worn over a fitted pair of leather gloves means keeping warm and chic in one stylish swoop!
4. The diamond pendent
Sometimes it's nice to wear your diamonds every day. And, like stud earrings, diamond pendent necklaces make great style impact without the impaired wearability of something like a grand cocktail ring. Wearable at the gym, on the beach, in the office, at a formal event, on the school run and over a warm sweater, diamond pendent necklaces are arguably one of the most versatile diamond jewellery choice for every woman.
5. Loose diamonds
Okay, so they're not technically jewellery... yet! Loose diamonds from a reputable certified jeweller can make a great investment for the woman who wants her diamonds to be as versatile as possible. Maybe she wants to collect sentimental gems for a piece of custom jewellery, maybe she's putting her money where her gems are, or perhaps she just hasn't make up her mind yet!
Certified diamond rings, loose diamonds and other jewellery from a jeweller with an impeccable reputation make the best investments. Buying online? Websites like TrustPilot are great places to start because they're made up entirely of customer reviews. So, what have we learned? Classic diamonds never go out of fashion and elegance is about style quality not accessory quantity!
