If you have so much as glanced at the internet within the past few weeks, you have certainly seen ads, photos, clips, and music from two movies that we hold near and dear to our childhood. Greta Gerwig’s Barbie and The Little Mermaid starring Halle Bailey, are all the rage this summer, and have influenced many of the natural diamond jewelry trends you are seeing now.
Familiar with the terms barbiecore and mermaidcore? The term “Barbiecore” is inspired by various shades of pink, while “Mermaidcore” is inspired by the ocean, seashells, and even sea creatures. Maybe you identify with either Barbie or Ariel, maybe even both, but we won’t ask you to pick a side, especially when it comes to these natural diamond jewelry trends.
Melissa Kaye is right up Barbie’s ally. With her signature enamel and natural diamond collection, the Ada Huggie Hoops are the perfect touch of pink.
Barbie’s big night out? Or just a grocery store run? She wouldn’t leave the house without this hot pink enamel and natural diamond choker from Boochier. Day-to-night, this necklace is a fun pop of color with subtle natural diamonds.
Mason and Books

Described as “a reminder to acknowledge the little wins, the small joys, and the smiles from strangers that get us from point A to point B,” this natural diamond and opal necklace is Barbie (and Anna) approved.
