Diamonds are forever – meaning there’s no limit to when you can throw on your favourite jewellery pieces. Whether it be an evening out, a big event, or a trip to the local shop, why not add a bit of sparkle to your life? Of course, we’re not talking about heading to the high street head to toe in gemstones. We can all agree that might be taking it a bit too far. But you don’t have to be adorned in statement necklaces and tiaras to feel fabulous. That’s why subtle diamond jewellery pieces are firm favourites in many people’s jewellery boxes.
Read on to get acquainted with some classic subtle diamond jewellery pieces that you can wear every day of the week.
Eternity rings offer a great way to showcase sparkle in an everyday setting. They are made up of a full ring of diamonds; each diamond is uniform in size and the gems either fill the circumference of the ring (a full eternity ring) or half the circumference of the ring (a half eternity ring).
These dazzling rings are sometimes chosen as an engagement ring, but they are more frequently gifted as an anniversary or birthday present. The simple shape of eternity rings makes them perfect for stacking – one of the many reasons they work as an everyday jewellery piece. You can wear them alone, stack them with an engagement ring, or style them with a few different rings and midi rings on your other fingers for an understated yet sophisticated look.
Much like eternity rings, tennis bracelets are a wonderful type of jewellery to add some glamour to any outfit – even when you’re feeling casual. Made up of a full circumference of diamonds in a white or yellow gold setting, tennis bracelets will sparkle beautifully in the light. However, thanks to the small size of their diamonds and their simple design, they won’t be overbearing.
Tennis bracelets can be worn alone, stacked with other bracelets, or worn next to a watch. Don’t pair them with too many rings for an everyday look and let their under-stated shimmer be the main event.
Diamond necklaces are a guaranteed way to add a pinch of sparkle to your daily look. However, large statement necklaces probably aren’t going to go with your day-to-day outfits. That’s where the gorgeous diamond solitaire pendant comes in. Solitaire pendants consist of a single diamond or gemstone suspended from a simple chain. There’s no occasion in which a small and subtle solitaire pendant wouldn’t work – this jewellery piece could complement every outfit, whether you’re going to work or out for drinks. This is a great piece to have in your jewellery box which will carry you effortlessly from day to night.
Brooches have had a recent fashion revival and are set to be all the rage as we head further into the 2020s. With celebrities such as Lady Gaga and Regé-Jean Page sporting diamond brooches recently, it’s clear that this under-appreciated jewellery style is making a big comeback. One of the great things about brooches is that they can work as either a statement piece or a subtle touch to an outfit. So, if you’re looking to spice up a work outfit with a subtle piece of diamond jewellery, brooches are a great option. For a particularly subtle and dainty touch, go for a diamond pin brooch or a simple bar brooch. Either of these options will add that certain something special to your outfit without being too over-the-top.
Diamonds don’t always have to steal the show, but they can be guaranteed to add that special bit of magic to your outfit. Any of these stunning jewellery options will have you feeling fabulous every day of the week.
