A Guide to Buying Jewelry - Diamonds for Every Day



Diamonds, as you all know, are not only our best friends, but our very best choice when it comes to choosing an accessory that is subtle, feminine and just plain beautiful. However, it might be difficult to choose between all the different shapes and sizes of diamond jewelry available today, and considering the steep price tag, it is very important to choose well, so that you end up with a piece that you will love and cherish for many years to come.


I prepared this selection in collaboration with diamond retailer Anjolee. Check out their website for more beautiful designs, including earrings, necklaces, bracelets and wedding ring set designs. 



These classic and super feminine white gold and diamond pendants are perfect for any occasion and with almost any outfit. They will look equally good with a long silk evening dress and a simple white shirt and jeans combo for every day. I absolutely love the curved lines and delicate detailing!

Bracelets are a great way to add some color to our outfits. Our hands are among the most visible parts of our body, so whatever we wear on them will have a huge impact. Colored stones in a delicate white or yellow gold setting will make a beautiful statement without looking too showy or overpowering.


Earrings are such a fun piece of jewelry to wear, but the style we choose depends on several factors, such as the occasion, our hairdo and the shape of our face. Complement a round face with a pair of elongated teardrop shape earrings, balance a square face with rounded or curved lines and if you have an oval face, you're a lucky  girl - you will look great with almost anything!


I don't know about you guys, but I like my diamond rings massive. Not that I have that many, but if I could choose any one I want, it would be so heavy my shoulder would hurt from it by the end of the day. As this kind of rings can be quite costly (or so I've heard), here's a tip for all of you who are not Bill Gates: instead of buying one ginormous diamond, get a large ring with lots of small ones - they are much cheaper and they sparkle even brighter!

What do you think guys? Which styles are your favorites?
