BLING OUT TRENDS

THISDAY Style - - STYLE & DESIGN - BY FUNKE BABS-KUFEJI

if you think di­a­monds are just for en­gage­ments, wed­dings and an­niver­saries, it’s time to think again. Fine fash­ion­able di­a­mond jew­elry is a won­der­ful choice, and di­a­monds come in a va­ri­ety of shapes, sizes, cuts and col­ors. But be­cause di­a­monds are so of­ten as­so­ci­ated with the ro­mance and sym­bol­ism of lives joined to­gether for­ever, it can be hard to break free of the idea that di­a­monds are any­thing other than mar­riage gifts. But that’s no rea­son to re­move such an ab­so­lutely gor­geous gem­stone from op­tion of gifts for oth­ers or your­self.

MAKE A STATE­MENT you can make a fash­ion state­ment with di­a­monds by tak­ing ad­van­tage of col­ors other than white, ei­ther alone or mix­ing. a ring, neck­lace or bracelet that mixes black and white di­a­monds cre­ates a fo­cal point. yel­low di­a­monds, alone or paired with white, are both to­tally on trend and ef­fort­lessly clas­sic.

STACK EM! stack­ing rings, lay­ered neck­laces, and bracelets have had a strong­hold on the jew­elry in­dus­try for the last cou­ple of years. Mix-and­match pieces to cre­ate your own look or choose one that has al­ready been done for you.

MONO­CHROME Monochro­matic sparkle that is com­ple­men­tary to both fash­ion and beauty trends are aslo big, so in­vest in them.

COLOUR YOUR WORLD It prob­a­bly doesn’t come as a sur­prise that col­ored gem­stones in bridal are on the uptick— more brides want seem­ingly unique, highly cus­tom­ized op­tions in their en­gage­ment rings, and col­ored gems are a vari­a­tion of that.

TWO TONE nat­u­ral brown and cham­pagne color di­a­monds can make an­other color splash. singly or com­bined with other col­ors, jew­elry with these di­a­monds cre­ate an earthy-yet-daz­zling look. Brown di­a­monds are es­pe­cially warm and beau­ti­ful when set in rose or white gold.

GO BLACK Black di­a­monds are back in a big way. off-set with white di­a­monds or white metal, the black di­a­mond cre­ates stark con­trast for real in­ter­est­ing pieces. To max­imise shim­mer, opt for a set, dress rings or bold ear­rings en­crusted with lots of smaller black di­a­monds as op­posed to a sin­gle stone.
