So I'm looking at something a little bit different - unpolished diamonds, or diamonds as an accent with other stones, or diamonds in unusual colors. So if your birthday's in April (or the birthday of a special someone...) and you don't want to go full-on solid diamonds, I have some suggestions:
|Dress – Uniqlo; necklace – Celine Daoust; wrap - Loro Piana; scarf – Cornici; necklace – David Yurman; dress – Uniqlo|
(yes, you've seen some of these dresses before! A nice dress can stand up to a lot of scrutiny, and works well with a variety of accessories...)
And this black pleated dress? I'm just saying - it's a REALLY good thing that I'm not shopping for a dress (or anything else!) this year - this really appeals to me. Sigh...
And yes, those ARE diamonds on that necklace - diamonds in all sorts of colors!
|dress - Uniqlo; bracelet - MeiraT; scarf – Eileen Fisher; Scarf – Hinge; dress - Uniqlo; necklace – Noor Fares|
I love the way the diamond accents on these subtle colors add just a bit of sparkle without being overwhelming:
|dress – P.A.R.O.S.H.; earrings - Meira T.; ring - Belpearl; cardigan - N.Peal; cardigan – James Perse; earrings - David Yurman; ring – John Hardy; dress - Patagonia|
When you're getting dressed up, you can choose any accent color you like, or you can go totally monochromatic - both are beautiful!
|Dress – Lands’ End; necklace - Frederic Sage; scarf - Nordstrom; scarf – Irene Paris; dress - Uniqlo; earrings – Marco Bicego|
Diamonds are lovely with less dressy options too - especially these unpolished green diamonds! Who would have thought...
|cardigan – Polo Ralph Lauren; green diamond earrings – Mona Lisa’s Closet; bracelet – Roberto Coin; dress – Peter Cohen; dress – Uniqlo; earrings - Gurhan; bracelet – Sydney Evan; cardigan – Fat Face|
So if you would like a little something with diamonds (or you're shopping for a gift), you can see that there's a wide world of options!
