Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend: My Favorite Diamond Necklaces and How to Style them



As a little girl, I was always mesmerized by my mother's and grandmother’s diamond jewelry. There has to be some truth in the saying “diamonds are a girl’s best friend”. Diamonds can elevate any outfit or look, and make you feel like you are getting ready for breakfast at Tiffany’s. Although evoking a feel of luxury, it can be quite difficult to style diamonds on a daily basis.

Minimalist jewelry is all the rage right now, and I am so glad diamonds are being used in the trend. So, I wanted to break down my favorite types of diamond necklaces and how I like to style them. These pieces of jewelry are also going to be an excellent addition to the upcoming Holiday season.

For me, I like picking pieces that are very simple yet elegant. When you choose pieces like that, your outfit is immediately elevated, but it is also not too extravagant and flashy. The key is to pick a diamond necklace in a finish that matches the other jewelry you wear on a normal basis. So, if you wear more gold jewelry than you would pick out a necklace in a gold finish. Or if you wear more rose gold, you would pick out a necklace in rose gold, and so on.

Dainty necklaces with a good diamond can be a style statement in any setting. Whether you wear it to work or to a fancy black tie event, it is sure to make heads turn. I love styling my necklaces with my office wear -  with a simple dress or pant suit -  and on my nights out. I also love to throw them on when I am wearing something simple or casual but just need a small wow factor to my outfit. It is quite difficult to purchase accessories nowadays since there are so many different styles out in the market. For that reason, I like to purchase pieces that will be everlasting. The classic look of dainty diamond necklaces will never go out of style. That way you never have to worry about not having any accessories to dress up your outfits.

It is also great to keep in mind that nowadays more jewelry retailers are switching to ethically sourced diamonds, which make the purchase of these necklaces even more worthwhile. Ethically sourced diamonds also are more reasonably priced and affordable, which means you won’t break your bank in purchasing them.

There are so many ways to style these necklaces!

Here are my top three favorite ways:

1.       1. With a business casual neutral colored dress and a blazer

2.       2. With a simple monochrome casual outfit (which is how I have styled it in these pictures)

3.       3. Any all black outfit or little black dress

So if you are looking to elevate your look, I would highly suggest purchasing your own.


Here I am styling my two dainty diamond necklaces with a casual off the shoulder dress from Boohoo.


Until next time,


Peace, love and good health to you all!
