As we venture into the pseudo-post-pandemic world, life, as we knew it, has changed leaps and bounds. However, there are a few constants that will always remain, and they come with a sense of familiarity and comfort. In fashion, we have labeled these constants as classics, and they follow us through all the changes of life unfazed as if their primary and sole purpose is to reiterate our true authentic selves.

Transcending beyond the noise of trends, we explore key jewellery pieces parallel to the fashion classics, like the little black dress. Natural diamonds come with a certain quality of timelessness that exudes a stronger sense of belonging as they hold within them a story of their wearer. These essential pieces are classics that will tend to outlive the unpredictabilities of our journeys and bring a sense of assurance that only belongs to things that hold a sense of comfort in their inherent consistency. Natural diamond classics are to be worn, rejoiced, and shared, as their value resides in the stories they hold. Read on to see how some of these essential jewellery pieces parallel our favorite fashion classics, from the little black dress to a classic white shirt.

The Stud Earring is your little black dress.

Natural diamond studs are a true fashion essential and, by default a must-have for every jewellery collection. The classic design of a diamond stud works seamlessly from day to night so they can be paired with almost anything with great ease. Their nonchalant yet statement presence, similar to a little black dress, makes them a natural go-to for every jewellery enthusiast or novice alike. They tend to grab just the right amount of attention without feeling overwhelming and complete any look with a particular sartorial punch.

The Tennis Bracelet is a classic white shirt.

Taking its name from US champion Chris Evert who wore her diamond bracelet to the court in the 1970s, a diamond bracelet, aka the tennis bracelet, is one of the most versatile pieces in any jewellery collection. No longer reserved as a sentimental pass-along piece, this elegant stream of natural diamonds has taken the forefront over the past few years in the world of fine accessories. Just like a classic white shirt, their classic and simplistic design makes them apt for stacking or layering with other handpieces and watches.

The Cocktail Ring is your black stiletto.

Reminiscent of 1920s glamour, a cocktail ring was popularized in the Prohibition era by flapper girls who exude all things grander-than-life. Giving a hard pass to the less-is-more ideology, a cocktail ring is a perfect addition to an evening look, as is a statement black stiletto. However, the radical in you may want to go ahead and pair it with your favorite denim and an oversized blazer for an elevated and trés chic daytime look.

The Watch is your statement leather jacket.

For some, it is an investment piece, and to others, a collector’s piece, a diamond watch, be it on the overindulgent end of the spectrum, is the kind of essential that adds an element of luxe to any wardrobe. With its intricate design and detailed craftsmanship, a natural diamond-encrusted watch is a piece that is an ultimate statement piece that oozes extravagance and yet one that serves a purpose. With their innate luxe appearance, a timepiece thus parallels the luscious leather jacket that adds an edge to any outfit it’s paired with.
