Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend

"A kiss on the hand might be quite continental...but diamonds are a girls best friend." 
-Marilyn Monroe

I have yet to met a female who does not like diamonds. Diamonds are pretty, have sparkle and just make everything better. There are many occasions in a girls life that can be marked or celebrated with a piece of diamond jewelery. And, every girl should own several pieces

Classic 4 Prong Tennis Bracelet
My grandparents gave me a tennis bracelet one year for Christmas (these are the same grandparents that also gave me tennis lessons for a different Christmas). I will never forget opening that box and seeing such a beautiful piece of jewelery. I wore that bracelet everywhere and received so many compliments on it. 

Romanced By Diamonds Stud Earrings
For my birthday, one of my closest and longest standing friends gave me a pair of diamond stud earrings. Diamond studs are the perfect finishing touch to any outfit. They are classic, timeless and go with everything. They can be worn with anything and at any time. I especially like to wear mine if I have an important meeting...they give me that little extra boost of confidence. 

Princess Cut Gemstone and Diamond Drop Pendant
Once upon a time, there was a gentleman in my life who bought me a beautiful diamond drop pendant-it was shaped like a flower, with a sapphire as the centre and diamonds for the petals- just because. 'Just because' diamonds might just be the best kind of diamonds. I still wear this necklace from time to time. It's such a unique piece and everyone seems to comment on it. 

I think most people will agree that the most significant, sought after and special- and common- diamond a girl will receive is an engagement ring. There are so many options when it comes to engagement rings. I'm actually going to skip talking about this because there are so many engagement rings floating around blogs, Pinterest, social media, etc. 

Woven Band Diamond Eternity Ring
Something that I am looking to add to my diamond collection (hint, hint) are eternity bands.These are perfect for weddings, anniversaries, special occasions or just because. There are so many options when it comes to eternity bands- single row or multiple rows of diamonds, solid diamond band to different designs, only diamonds to a mix of diamonds and gemstones...there are so many options! Eternity bands, I think, are a great, classic and subtle statement piece.

  1. Not only is my stone a diamond (April) but you're right "they are a girls best friend"!

    You brought back memories of the time that my GrandMother gave me a roll of toilet paper for Christmas ( and a few years later, diamond stud earrings. She got one present spot on.

    Great post, thanks for sharing your story. I'd love a tennis bracelet.
