It is impossible to imagine a woman's jewelry collection without sparkling diamond earrings. The diamond stud is undoubtedly the most popular style of earring, and is a classic part of any wardrobe.
Their total versatility as fashion items enables them to be styled masculinely or femininely. As pretty on the dance floor as they are in the office meeting, equally at home at a restaurant as they are at the wedding - diamond studs complete an outfit. Even those wearing understated attire can benefit from a bit of dazzle, or as a highlight in any high fashion outfit depending on setting.
Their affordability is even more appealing, as many high-quality pairs are available at competitive prices.
One of the most popular sizes for earrings is 1ct diamond total weight. Diamond studs can only shine with excellent cutting, so invest in the best cutting you can afford to get the most out of each 0.50 carat diamond.

2. Tennis Bracelet

Any jewelry collection would benefit from having a diamond bracelet. It has the potential to be your most effective piece of jewelry. Tennis bracelets add just the right amount of sparkle to your ensemble, being smart enough for the office, and glamorous enough for black-tie dinners.
Chris Evert, a prolific American tennis player, is said to have popularized the term 'tennis bracelet' by wearing one throughout her lengthy career. According to the story, her bracelet broke midway through the match at the US Open. It contained a thin row of diamonds, and Evert asked the umpire to pause the match while the bracelet was recovered.
It remains to be seen if the story is true. What is true is that Evert undoubtedly popularized the fashion accessory.
To achieve that desirable tennis bracelet look, diamonds are set in a continuous line in a bracelet made from interlocking individual diamond settings. One of the most popular diamond tennis bracelets is the Four-Prong diamond tennis bracelet - it’s a design that is undeniably strong and wraps seamlessly around your wrist like a flexible piece of armor. It has certainly earned its place in your collection.

3. Pendant Necklace

Jewelry pendants serve as ornaments or accent pieces. Pendant necklaces with brilliant diamonds or colored gemstones may be the most feminine piece of jewelry a woman can have.
A beautiful pendant adds a sense of individual style and a touch of charm, which can range from delicate and demure to bold and provocative. Diamond pendants come in an unlimited array of designs; a simple, classic solitaire pendant is undoubtedly the most popular type of diamond pendant.
Chain length becomes important as the pendant becomes the focal point that draws the eye in. A pendant necklace can last a lifetime by simply purchasing a different chain length, so although the pendant itself remains a permanent piece, it is simple to update to contemporary styles.
Diamond pendants never fade from fashion and are a mainstay of any jewelry wardrobe. Even though styles may look similar, they can differ profoundly in terms of durability and appearance. Our diamond pendant guide has been created to assist you in finding the diamond necklace you've always wanted.

Your collection of rings likely includes a variety of rings you wear every day. For special occasions, however, every woman should have a chic cocktail ring at her disposal; it can transform any outfit instantly.
A cocktail ring, often worn on the right hand, represents style, independence, and self-love. Traditional cocktail rings feature large colored gemstones, sometimes accented by diamonds. They are often wider than other kinds of fine jewelry, allowing bold statements to be made.
These rings were popularized during the 1920s Prohibition era, when flapper girls wore oversized rings to attract attention to their scandalous drinks.
Despite the allure of less-is-more minimalism and delicate diamond layers, cocktail rings require only a single piece to make a bold statement.
While it may not seem like an obvious staple, the compliments you'll receive will make you wish you had invested sooner.

7. Bangle Bracelet

Bangles are timeless, simple and easy-to-wear items that every woman needs in her jewelry box. The styles are diverse, so you can choose something simple and minimal, or something more detailed.
A bangle is a rigid ring of precious metal that gives a defined silhouette and contemporary appearance, miles away from the icy fluidity of the iconic tennis bracelet.
It is one of the best things about bangles that you can pair them with pretty much anything. They can be worn alongside dainty little chain bracelets, or stacked with more bangles; the most delightful jingling sound will be created if you go for the latter.
You can start with simple, elegant bands featuring pavé diamonds and then explore wider styles incorporating bigger, bolder stones. They are perfect for wearing both day and night, so they are excellent additions to your jewelry collection.

8. Pearls

Classic elegance is best embodied by pearls. Any jewelry box can benefit from a few glistening pearls, from a simple strand of pearls to a pair of earrings.
The long life of pearls is a blessing to pearl lovers. It's no wonder that pearl necklaces are passed down for generations. They'll never go out of style and add a subtle glow to your entire aura.
If you don’t already have the luxury of having a pearl strand in your collection, it’s worth investing to pass it down yourself.
Even though we maintain only a limited inventory of colored gemstone and pearl jewelry, we rely on our reputation for quality and reliability to source customers' special gems, pearls, and fancy color diamonds.
If pearls are what you desire to add to your collection, one of our Diamond and Jewelry Consultants will be happy to assist you in making your decision.
