Everyone already knows how to wear diamonds – there’s a big business consortium that’s been telling us exactly what to buy, and how to wear it, for decades…
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:
(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!
I love the way the diamond accents on these subtle colors add just a bit of sparkle without being overwhelming:
When you’re getting dressed up, you can choose any accent color you like, or you can go totally monochromatic – both are beautiful!
Diamonds are lovely with less dressy options too – especially these unpolished green diamonds! Who would have thought…
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!
