Many people think that diamond jewelry is only for special, and likely dressy, occasions; however, they could not be more wrong.
Yes, diamonds are beautiful for the most important days in your life – weddings, anniversaries, parties, and so much more. But, they are also some of the most classic pieces of jewelry that a woman will ever own – and can really be a part of her everyday wardrobe.
Any jewelry, if paired with the appropriate outfit, can be dressed up or down. Take a pair of diamond studs – many women think of these only as a simple, classic earrings that should be worn for more casual events. However, when paired with a dress and heels, a chic updo and some additional accessories, diamond studs look elegant and sophisticated.
The opposite goes for styles that are traditionally dressier, like a diamond pendant necklace or even diamond hoops. While many women save them for dressy occasions, these are pieces that can be worn with more classic outfits as well – especially work and casual nights out. Just watch what you pair them with...these are best dressed down with flat shoes, simple clothing and minimal accessories to tone down your overall look.
We will admit, there are some diamond jewelry styles that are best left for those special occasions – think diamond bracelets, big cocktail rings and bold necklaces – so those are not recommended for everyday wear. But, you can still always add them to business casual or semi-formal events instead of just saving for that next black tie wedding.
These are a few of our favorite pieces to dress up and down!
