The Diamond Details for the Perfect Holiday Look

The holidays are all about spending time with your loved ones— and, of course, hitting those fabulous holiday parties! Holiday parties are a time to eat, drink, and be merry. But for all the fashionistas out there, holiday parties are also an opportunity to have fun putting together some show-stopping holiday party looks. If you’re planning your holiday party looks, don’t forget your diamond details. The holidays are all about shimmer and a fabulous diamond accessory (or two) can make any ensemble look perfectly holiday-party ready.

Some carefully selected diamond details can take a holiday outfit from good to incredible. But which diamond details should you choose for your holiday party looks? Read on to see our top recommendations as we share the best diamond details for the perfect holiday look!

Diamond Hoop Earrings

Diamond hoop earrings have it all: they’re beautiful, classic, elegant, and eye-catching. So if you’re hunting for some diamond jewelry that will take your holiday looks to the next level, you can’t go wrong with a pair of spectacular diamond hoops!

One thing we love about diamond hoops is how many options you have to choose from. Diamond hoops come in so many sizes and colors, and they can be set with any size of diamond. So when you pick out your diamond hoops for the holidays, consider what type of look you’re going for. Do you want to go bold? Try an oversized pair of hoops, like the elegant yet glamorous pair pictured above. Do you want to keep your look a bit more delicate? Try a pair of petite diamond hoops that will add the perfect amount of shimmer to your ensemble.

Diamond Studs

Diamond studs are always a top choice for holiday looks, since there’s no piece of jewelry that is more classic and versatile. If you want to get just one new piece of jewelry to wear during the holidays, diamond studs are an ideal option. They pair beautifully with cocktail attire, black tie looks, casual-cool looks, and even work looks (for those times when you need to take your outfit from day to night). A single pair of diamond studs is something you can use to elevate your looks all season long— and also enjoy wearing for decades to come.

As with hoops, there are many styles of diamond studs. If you want to keep your studs ultra classic, you could opt for a chic, traditional pair of round brilliant diamond studs. Or, if you want a more unique look for your studs, you could go for a pair of fancy shaped diamond studs. One of our favorite fancy diamond shapes of the moment is the cushion cut diamond (pictured above), a romantic and elegant shape with a vintage-style. Cushion cut diamonds look quite classic, but also have a distinctive, romantic beauty that adds something incredibly special to a pair of studs.

Diamond and Blue Topaz Cocktail Ring

If you love a colorful, vibrant look, rock a diamond and gemstone cocktail ring this holiday season. Diamond and gemstone jewelry is one of our favorite ways to wear diamonds. You get some rich, eye-catching color from your gemstone, while also getting dazzling brilliance from  your diamonds— it’s the perfect combination!

There are so many different types of gemstones you can use to add a bit of color to your holiday looks. One of our current favorites is blue topaz, a glimmering sky blue gemstone. Blue topaz is rich in color, yet is also one of the more reflective colored gemstones, which makes it particularly mesmerizing. When paired with diamonds, blue topaz looks extra icy, so a blue topaz and diamond piece is an ideal glam winter accessory.

Shop Blue Topaz Rings

Black Diamond Pendant

If you’re shopping for the perfect diamond details for your holiday look, remember that white diamonds are not your only option! Diamonds come in every hue imaginable, including in a rich, velvety black.

We absolutely love black diamond jewelry for a holiday look, since black diamonds add a stunning, luxe depth to any ensemble. Black diamond jewelry is a bit unexpected. It’s striking, bold, mysterious, and incredibly eye-catching. So if you’re looking to add a uniquely luxurious touch your holiday look, black diamond jewelry is an excellent choice.

One of our favorite ways to wear black diamonds is in a solitaire pendant, like the lovely rose gold and black diamond pendant necklace pictured above. We love black diamond pendants because they’re both beautiful and versatile. They look spectacular when worn on their own or when worn as a part of an intricate layered look.

Top Jewelry Gifts: Ideas for the 10th Wedding Anniversary

The 10th wedding anniversary is something to truly treasure. You’re celebrating a decade of life lived together, a decade of loving and supporting each other through good times and bad. But what should you gift for a 10th wedding anniversary? Diamonds are the traditional gift given on a 10th anniversary and they’re certainly an appropriate one. What better way to show your spouse just how much you appreciate them than with a beautiful, timeless piece of diamond jewelry that they can enjoy wearing for decades to come?

If you’re looking for the perfect diamond piece for your 10th anniversary, we’re here to help! Read on to see our list of the top jewelry gifts for the 10th wedding anniversary!

Diamond Stud Earrings

Diamond studs are easily one of the most popular gift options for the 10th anniversary. Perhaps that’s because diamond studs are a chic, gorgeous, and effortless way to wear diamonds. Diamond studs work perfectly with any ensemble, including everything from jeans and a t-shirt to a black-tie-ready gown. They’re also excellent for any age group and are sure to stand the test of time. If you’re looking for a jewelry gift anyone would adore, diamond studs are the perfect option.

If you’re considering selecting diamond stud earrings for your anniversary, you actually have numerous options within this category. Diamond studs come in many different styles and you also have many different diamond shapes to choose from. One of the most popular diamond stud designs of today is the halo set diamond stud (pictured above). Halo settings add gorgeous shimmer and glamour to a pair of diamond studs.

Another excellent option for diamond studs is the solitaire design, like the beautiful emerald cut diamond studs pictured above. Solitaire studs are elegant, classic, and always ready to dazzle.

Diamond Tennis Bracelet

A diamond tennis bracelet is another enduringly popular 10th anniversary gift. A diamond tennis bracelet is one of the most classic— and stunning— pieces of jewelry anyone can have in their collection. Diamond tennis bracelets are, of course, gorgeous. A tennis bracelet adds spectacular shimmer to the wrist, catching eyes from across the room. Then, diamond tennis bracelets also carry beautiful meaning. The endless ring of diamonds that makes up a diamond tennis bracelet represents your eternal love for one another. With its dazzling look and lovely meaning, a diamond tennis bracelet is a sweet and simply stunning gift option they’ll adore.

If you’re considering selecting a diamond tennis bracelet for your anniversary gift, know that you have many designs to choose from. Tennis bracelets come with different settings, diamond shapes, diamond sizes, and precious metals. Browse our collection of diamond tennis bracelets to find the perfect custom design for your sweetheart.

Diamond Monogram Necklace

If your spouse loves a sweet, sentimental touch, a diamond initial necklace is the ideal choice for them. Initial pendants are an incredibly popular anniversary gift, no matter the year. Initial pendants are always classic, thoughtful, and so easy to wear. Then, of course, since diamonds are the traditional anniversary gift for the 10th anniversary, diamond set initial pendants are a top choice for the 10th anniversary.

When selecting an initial pendant for your spouse, you can go one of four ways with your initial customization. You could gift them their initial, your initial, both of your initials, or you can use the necklace’s letters to send a sweet message (like the “XO” pictured above). Whatever option you choose, your spouse is sure to think of you fondly each time they wear their initial pendant.

Diamond Pendant Necklace

Last up in our list of gift ideas for the 10th wedding anniversary is the chic, timeless diamond pendant necklace. Much like diamond stud earrings, diamond pendant necklaces are enduringly popular because they’re as classic as they are wearable. A diamond pendant is a beautiful, traditional piece of jewelry that your spouse can enjoy wearing for decades, since this design never goes out of style. Then, a diamond pendant necklace is also incredibly versatile. A diamond pendant necklace pairs well with casual looks, upscale looks, and everything in between.

The most popular style of diamond pendant necklace is a classic solitaire pendant. But then, within that category, you have options. You can go with a pronged setting for a more traditional look or select a bezel setting (like the one pictured above) for a more sleek, modern look. You can also choose your ideal precious metal for your diamond pendant necklace. Most people who wear jewelry have a precious metal preference, so we generally advise that you select your spouse’s favorite precious metal for anniversary jewelry. If you’re not sure which precious metal your spouse prefers, take some time to observe the jewelry they usually wear so you can determine which precious metal they love wearing the most.

Top Anniversary Gift Ideas — Fall in Love Again

Anniversaries are something to truly treasure. They’re a celebration of your successful partnership as a married couple, a time to cherish the years you’ve spent helping each other through all of life’s ups and downs. They’re also a time to remember your everlasting love and devotion for one another, and fall in love all over again.

Anniversary gifts are meant to express your gratitude and love for your partner, which is why jewelry is always a top choice. Jewelry is inherently romantic. When you gift jewelry, you’re giving a gift that says, “I love you.” And while jewelry is a sentimental gift, it’s also practical. Jewelry is something that can be worn and treasured for years to come.

There are many different types of jewelry that will “wow” your partner on your wedding anniversary. In this post, we’re sharing some of our favorites. Here are our top anniversary gift ideas that will have you both falling in love all over again.

An Initial Pendant

The pave diamond set initial pendant pictured above is one of our favorite gift ideas for anniversaries. Initial pendants are classic, chic, and highly wearable. They’re also very easy to customize, which makes them a sweet, sentimental gift.

When you customize your initial pendant, you can choose the letter of your spouse’s name, the letter of your name, or get a bit creative. We love initial pendants that send a message, like the sweet “xo” message pictured above.

An Anniversary Band

Anniversary bands are a top gift choice for big milestone anniversaries, like the 5th anniversary or the 10th anniversary. But, really, an anniversary band is a beautiful gift that she’ll adore no matter which anniversary it’s tied to.

If you aren’t familiar with the concept of an anniversary band, it’s a new wedding band you gift your partner on your anniversary. This wedding band can replace your original wedding band or simply be worn alongside it. When you shop for an anniversary band, think about how this new band will work with her engagement ring and existing wedding band. While some people decide to only wear their new anniversary band, others may want the option to stack all their rings. Choose an anniversary band that would pair well with her other bridal jewelry so she can choose how she wants to wear it.

A Diamond Tennis Bracelet

Diamond tennis bracelets are an anniversary gift that will set her heart on fire. Tennis bracelets are timeless and extraordinarily beautiful. A tennis bracelet is an anniversary gift she will truly never forget.

When it comes to tennis bracelets, you have many options to choose from. You can go with a classic tennis bracelet that features an infinite ring of diamonds. Or, go with something a bit more sentimental, like a tennis bracelet that features interlocking hearts. Browse our diamond tennis bracelet collection to see just how many different styles you have to choose from, then choose the style that would be perfect for her.

Diamond Stud Earrings

Is there any piece of jewelry more classic than a pair of diamond studs? Diamond studs are stunningly beautiful and so incredibly easy to wear. They’re something that every woman wants to have in their jewelry collection. If your spouse doesn’t own a pair of diamond studs, she’ll be thrilled to receive them on your wedding anniversary. Even if she does already own a pair of diamond studs, you can gift her an upgraded pair (or a pair in a different style) to help her seriously elevate her jewelry box.

As a side note, while diamond stud earrings are an excellent gift for any woman, they’re a particularly appropriate gift idea for new moms. Diamond studs are something than can add beauty to her everyday life— and also something a little one won’t be able to tug at, like they could with a necklace or a bracelet.

Summer Wedding: Trending Bridal Jewelry Accessories

After you’ve found the one and said yes to your dress, it’s time to start thinking about your bridal jewelry! To help you pick the perfect accessories for your wedding day, we’re highlighting some of our favorite summer wedding bridal jewelry trends. While this year’s trends span the gamut from highly unique to ultra traditional, all the jewelry on our list has one thing in common: it can be worn for a lifetime. Without further ado, here’s our list of summer’s top trending bridal jewelry accessories!

Stacked Bands and Multiple Rings

Traditionally, your engagement ring is the star accessory on your wedding day. However, many unconventional brides have been amping up the style of their engagement ring by following this unique trend: wearing additional rings.

You can incorporate the additional ring trend into your bridal jewelry in a couple of different ways. One way is to incorporate this trend into your engagement set by selecting multiple wedding bands, then stacking them. Another way is to wear rings on many of your fingers, which will create a pretty, intricate look.

See all your bridal ring options on our wedding rings page.

Wearing Something Blue

Wearing something blue has been a bridal jewelry tradition for centuries. In recent years, many brides have been gravitating toward traditional styles for their engagement rings and bridal jewelry. This has sparked a revival in following the old tradition to wear “something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue” on your wedding day.

If you love the idea of wearing blue jewelry on your wedding day, you have many beautiful options. One idea we adore is to select an engagement ring with a blue center stone, like an aquamarine engagement ring. (As an added bonus, aquamarine engagement rings also encompass several other currently trending styles: unique engagement rings, colorful engagement rings, and semi-precious engagement rings.) You could also select any number of other precious blue accessories, like blue sapphire earrings or a blue diamond pendant necklace. Whatever you decide on, blue jewelry will add a gorgeous pop of color to your bridal look.

Delicate Modern Jewelry

This next trend shows that this summer’s bridal trends tend to sit on the opposite sides of the spectrum. While some brides want highly traditional jewelry for their bridal ensemble, others are looking for highly unique pieces.

If you’re among the brides looking for more unconventional, distinctive accessories, you’ll love the modern jewelry trend. A big trend this summer is incorporating more modern fashion jewelry into your bridal look. In particular, selecting romantic, delicate studs like the ones pictured above has proved very popular. Though wearing modern jewelry is a trend in general, most brides are still keeping their modern jewelry minimal and chic, rather than bold and over-the-top. Selecting more minimalistic, yet still luxe, jewelry let’s you add some personality to your bridal ensemble while still ensuring your accessories are sophisticated.

See more luxe fashion jewelry that’s perfect for your wedding day on our HER Collection page.

Initial Pendants

Last but not least, we have the initial pendant trend. Initial jewelry is something that many think of as a modern trend, but it’s actually a jewelry tradition that’s as old as time. In ancient eras, it was very popular to wear engagement jewelry that incorporated an initial. And, in fact, the first diamond engagement ring in recorded history was an initial ring. All the way back in 1477, the Archduke Maximilian of Austria proposed to Mary of Burgundy with an engagement ring set with an “M” crafted from diamonds.

While initial rings haven’t made much of a comeback, initial pendants are seeing a big revival, both in bridal jewelry and in daily wear. There are three different ways to incorporate the initial pendant trend into your bridal look. One way is to wear your own initial to add a personal touch. Another way is to wear your partner’s initial, which is highly romantic. Then, finally, there’s our favorite way to wear this trend: wearing both your initial and your betrothed’s initial.

One of the best things about the initial pendant jewelry trend is that it’s something that can be incorporated into your daily wardrobe after your wedding day. An initial pendant can add a sentimental touch to your bridal look. Then, you will be reminded of your wedding day each time you wear your pendant necklace in the years to come.
