SHIM­MER & SHINE THIS CHRIST­MAS

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - STYLE FILE - with micheal hill

Make your day merry and bright with a truly spe­cial gift you’ll keep close to your heart this Christ­mas and beyond.

Mu­sic leg­end Shirley Bassey sang they were for­ever. For screen siren Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe, they were a girl’s best friend. If there’s one thing women have in com­mon, it’s our love af­fair with di­a­monds. One of the world’s most pre­cious stones, a glit­ter­ing di­a­mond is a gift we dream to one day re­ceive – from a simple stud ear­ring through to the most elab­o­rate pieces, noth­ing can com­pare to the feel­ing of open­ing a beau­ti­fully-wrapped box to re­veal a di­a­mond shin­ing right back at you. Whether you’re buy­ing for your part­ner, mum, daugh­ter, best friend or as a treat for your­self, di­a­monds are a deeply thought­ful and per­sonal gift – a clas­sic and mean­ing­ful way of telling that some­one spe­cial you’re think­ing of them al­ways. A time­less stone that’s long been a sym­bol of love, gift­ing a di­a­mond at Christ­mas­time is the ul­ti­mate way to show some­one how ex­tra­or­di­nary and pre­cious they are to you. A di­a­mond set with a clas­sic sil­ver or gold pen­dant, a fun and flirty cock­tail ring or a daz­zling, di­a­mon­den­crusted ten­nis bracelet – there’s a piece to de­light ev­ery girl or woman – and to work with ev­ery bud­get this fes­tive sea­son. When you do make your choice, re­mem­ber that the mean­ing of the piece re­mains the same – en­dur­ing love and the magic that a shim­mer­ing, sparkling di­a­mond un­der the tree rep­re­sents.

TREAT YOUR­SELF

The hol­i­day sea­son is all about self-love, be­cause ev­ery woman de­serves to feel spe­cial. Christ­mas is the per­fect time to treat your­self to a new item for your jew­ellery col­lec­tion. A stun­ning di­a­mond drop pen­dant set in gold or sil­ver will suit all your go-to wardrobe items and make you feel amaz­ing. Go on, you de­serve it!

Cel­e­brat­ing a mile­stone this year? There’s a di­a­mond to mark ev­ery oc­ca­sion. From neck­laces and ear­rings to a luxe list of lov­ingly-crafted, unique pieces, pick your piece for a pre­cious gift that will shine on for years to come.
