It has been a trend for the current fashionista, to take varying kinds of jewelry and stacking them on top of one another; large and loud statement pieces with formal jewelry, and various other materials. It is an age of contrast, and this is what we make of it.
It does not mean, however, that the use of basic, elegant, and singular pieces is at its end. Formal events and occasions need not be the only venues of opportunity for your classic, diamond pieces to shine.
There is rarely any point in purchasing beautiful diamond earrings, and not wearing them as often as you like. Diamonds are brilliantly versatile, adding a discreet sparkle to any outfit ensemble, so the trick here is to choose something simple and easily pairable. A classic little pair of diamond studs is the perfect simple example, while drop earrings and hoops go perfectly well with more adventurous dresses.
Taking a cue from the more classic tennis bracelet, a wider, more delicate set of bangles with a sweep of gems is subtler, and just as stylish. The beauty of bangles is that it covers a larger area of your arm, and one of the diamonds will be bound to catch the light, making them sparkle in the most magical way that only diamonds ever do. Who does not want to make it look that part of the Milky Way is on their arm? Silly!
A diamond pendant is a beautiful bit of jewelry that is the star of the canvas over which it hangs delicately upon: neck, or upper chest. It does not even take a lot for a diamond pendant to stand out, being that diamonds are already as dazzling as they are; they can be as simple as a diamond drop pendant hung on a black satin ribbon as a choker to emphasize a graceful neck, reminiscent of an older era, or on the end of a longer chain, whatever metal you may choose, and the diamond will highlight it nevertheless. It could be a single diamond set in the center of a star, and other quirky shapes, but it will always look dazzling and elegant, like you plucked a star out of the sky and hung it against your throat.
