Everyday is Women’s Day. And a day pencilled into the calendar isn’t required for you to truly celebrate you. Gifting yourself natural diamond jewellery can be a daunting task, with several boxes to check before you make that stunning purchase. Will the design survive an ever-evolving trend cycle? Is it versatile enough to compliment most of your wardrobe? Is it just the right amount of bling?
To make this challenging process easier, we’ve rounded up a selection of pieces that are fuss-free yet impactful – from diamond encrusted hoops, statement floral earrings to a classic diamond drop necklace. Here’s your guide to indulging in pieces that encapsulate femininity, exude confidence and remind you why you’re always worth it. 

The statement studs 
While solitaire diamond studs are the coming-of-age present for most women, when you’re treating yourself, go the extra mile with a pair of statement studs. Featuring an intricate floral pattern that reiterates the beauty of intertwined blooms, these earrings draw the attention towards your ears in a sophisticated fashion. Tailor-made for those Sunday brunches with the girls, or even a meal for one, the non-boring studs have officially arrived.

The multi-tasker necklace
Give ‘dripping in diamonds’ a whole new meaning with a stunning necklace featuring descending diamonds in multiple shapes. When it comes to the more opulent pieces we’ve always been advised to tuck them away safely and bring them out only for special occasions. This delicate yet dramatic necklace isn’t created to sit still in your jewellery box. Go the traditional route by wearing it with a slinky cocktail dress, or lend your everyday outfit a luxurious update by styling over your favourite oversized T-shirt + Euphoria style eye make-up. You’ll thank us later.

The chain-link bracelet
You’ve managed to get your hands on the perfect watch, a treasured timepiece that you’ll pass down to posterity. But for the days your wrist feels a little lonely, stack it up with a rectangular diamond link bracelet set in 18K gold. The bold geometric shape is balanced out with the subtle size, allowing you to wear it with your other favourite bracelets or even solo. Take cues from Emily Ratajkowski’s off-duty looks and make this the mainstay of your athleisure ensemble, compliment that post-workout glow with a shimmering piece of arm-candy.

The girl-boss ring
Diamond rings have most popularly been associated with romantic moments – promises, proposals and weddings. What’s better than a big, glimmering rock? A whole cluster. The Raindrop ring crafted in white gold is encrusted with a central drop-cut diamond, surrounded by drop, baguette and round cut diamonds and diamond pave on the shank. Wear yours to your grocery runs. You know Rihanna would.

The nine to nine earrings 
Chunky earrings ideal for those Zoom calls are clearly having a moment. But how about a pair that creates equal impact for when you step into the office? These dazzling crescent earrings smattered with diamonds prove to be a chic option for everyday sophistication. Contrast the curvy silhouette with the power shoulders of your favourite blazer for work hours, roll up your sleeves and sweep up your hair for cocktails – they’ll look just as good.

The after-hours bracelet 
Capturing the beauty of shape and movement, the diamond wave bracelet is an ode to carefree nights of dancing. Whether you’re playing bridesmaid at your best friends wedding or hitting the club after ages, this playful piece shines bright like the shiny disco ball.

The plunge party necklace 
With the current return to the great outdoors, slouchy sweatshirts are being traded in favour of your sexiest best, think lacey camisoles, cowl-neck blouses and even a Bridgerton-esque off-shoulder top to show off those clavicles. Embrace your inherent feminity by styling all these and more with a plunging lariat necklace feature pear shaped diamonds.
