Diamonds On The Daily
A cool OOTD deserves some stellar natural diamond jewelsBy Tanya Mehta |
A new day beckons new energy. Getting dressed is a daily ritual we often overlook as we traverse through an eventful week, however, your outfit can often define your mood and set the tone for the day that will unfold. You might think that real diamonds are best reserved for special occasions but they possess the power of dressing up the most understated outfit and can add a magical finishing touch to your everyday ensemble. When curating your collection of forever pieces, ensure you pick designs that are equal parts timeless and trendy and promise multiple wears. Whether you’re looking for the perfect diamond hoops for a lunch date with the girls or a layered diamond necklace to wear with your failsafe jeans and tee, our guide of everyday natural diamond jewellery ensures you deliver maximum impact with minimum effort.
Look chic while you check off your to-do list. Elevate a minimal yet comfortable outfit with natural diamond pieces that are classic and fuss-free. A day of running errands might sound like an unglamorous task but inject fun and sophistication in the most monotonous activities through a chic look. Cozy knitwear and barely there makeup find the perfect partner in delicate natural diamond jewellery. Embellish your ears with unusual half-hoop earrings featuring a sublime blend of real diamonds and pearls. A layered necklace with floral diamond motifs complements the pastel-hued daywear, and make a stunning double diamond ring your focal point in an ensemble that’s practical yet luxurious.

Beyond the boardroom
Entertaining outside the office beckons you take your workwear game up a notch. For an evening of casual cocktails and networking, one way to get the spotlight beyond your social skills is by sporting some modern natural diamond jewellery. Work the room in a power suit that exudes authority and confidence, slicked back hair is the ideal way to let a pair of diamond hoops shine. Offset the structure of strong shoulders with a delicate pendant set with round cut pave diamonds and roll up your sleeves to show off some delectable arm candy via stacked bracelets and rings.
Brunch Glow Up
For an afternoon of catching up with the girlfriends, sorbet shades with a serving of diamonds is the best way to ace a brunch date look. Take inspiration from resident glam doll Safa Siddiqui’s uber feminine style and embellish a corset top with diamond encrusted stud earrings and a tiny butterfly pendant that is reminiscent of your teenage days. Strike the balance by sporting a chunky tennis bracelet in a classic baguette setting, paired with a mesmerising diamond ring inspired by the boundless beauty of our galaxy. Made for lazy afternoons and joyful camaraderie, these sophisticated pieces go the extra mile.

A night at the cinema
Trade up your usual athleisure and roomy sweatpants for a movie look that injects a playful factor into your evening. Taking cues from influencer Dana Al Khalifa’s (a.k.a @theoverdressed) minimal yet high glam style, embellish a chic vest and jeans combination by wearing several intricate natural diamond pieces. Echo the soothing shades of blue with a stack of scallop-shaped band rings laced with real diamonds and a set of matching studs that aptly showcase traditional motifs in a modern light. The next step is to layer on those pieces that will stand the test of time and age beautifully, like your denim via a sleek diamond tennis bracelet. Complete this look by mastering the layering game with mini necklaces featuring dangling diamonds.
The key to selecting diamonds for daily use is choosing pieces that not only align with your personal style but those that lend you instant confidence and are easy to style.
