The diamond is the traditional birthstone of April and is a symbol of eternal love. It holds special meaning for lovers as often, diamonds are used in engagement and wedding rings. The “will you marry me” proposal will never be complete if not followed by a beautiful diamond ring.
Natural diamonds are a rare and unique ultimate gift for your loved one. Thought to be one of the hardest substances on the globe, diamonds date back billions of years.
Diamonds are thought to provide the person wearing them with better relationships and an increase in inner strength. They also bring other benefits such as balance, clarity and abundance.
Diamonds come in a wide range of colors such as black, blue, green, pink, red, purple, orange and yellow. The color is dependent on the type of impurities present in the stone. For instance, yellow stones have minuscule traces of nitrogen while blue ones contain boron.
As with fashion and beauty products, diamond rings and sets have trends too.
We asked SJ Solitaire Jewels, a diamond jewelry shop in Dubai to share with us the latest trends in diamonds, especially for brides-to-be.
Here are the top 3 diamond trends according to SJ Solitaire Jewels:
V-shape diamond necklaces:
Classic V-shape styles are back for the modern bride. The latest collection of V-shaped necklaces features many V-shaped patterns either as symmetric designs or even chaotic styles. Here is one beautiful diamond necklace from SJ Solitaire:
Pear and Marquis-shaped eternity bands:
Eternity bands have been worn since the 1960's. The continuous line of identically cut gemstones (usually diamonds) symbolize never-ending love. Pear-shape and Marquis-shape eternities are the latest trend. Take a look:
“Tennis bracelets are worn daily by most of our clients”, said Alok Krishnani of SJ Solitaire Jewels. “We recommend the classic round style (our best seller - starting at 8,000 AED), however, if you prefer something different, then the pear-shape, marquis-shape and the princess-cut diamonds are an excellent choice for a tennis bracelet”, added Krishnani.
PS: Do you know where the term Tennis Bracelet comes from?
The name Tennis Bracelet is related back to when Chris Evert, a professional tennis player from 1972 to 1989, lost her designer diamond bracelet designed by George Bedewi during a match at US Open. The clasp that was on her diamond bracelet snapped, fell off and she asked the game officials to pause the tennis match until her jewelry could be found. From that day, the line diamond bracelet has been called the tennis bracelet. Many tennis stars such as Serena Williams continue to wear one.
