Diwali is celebrated as the annual festival of lights in India; the moniker derived from the word ‘dipawali’ which translates into ‘row of lights’ in Sanskrit. The occasion symbolises the victory of light over darkness, and is today celebrated with the illumination of homes through diyas, lanterns and fireworks. The lustre of the season finds an interesting parallel in the frosted sparkle of a natural diamond – singular in its beauty and untarnished by external elements, its resilience and strength speaks of the unbreakable bonds we share with our loved ones.

It is time to turn your attention to another time-honoured tradition of the festive season — gifting the special people in your life a symbol of love that they will cherish forever

Those who have been on the hunt for a one-of-a-kind gift will find that few choices match up to the uniqueness of natural diamond jewellery. The luminosity of a real diamond perfectly mirrors the festive spirit and is guaranteed to bring a twinkle to your loved ones’ eyes as they unwrap their present. From the mother who claims she doesn’t need anything to the siblings you wish you could spend more time with, this handy diamond guide will take the guesswork out of finding the perfect gift for the special people in your life.

Minimalist pendant for the mother who says she has everything

If your mother insists that she doesn’t need anything for the gift season, she definitely isn’t the only one. If you are looking to indulge her this Diwali because she so rarely treats herself, a natural diamond pendant makes for the perfect candidate. Reach for a gold chain with multiple diamond motifs and convince her to layer it with a rose gold diamond pendant with coloured enamel to invite a pop of colour to her everyday routine.

For the man who likes to distinguish himself from the crowd, natural diamond cufflinks will make for a memento that he wears with pride on those special occasions of life.
