1. Diamond Studs
Is there anything more classic than a pair of diamond studs? Diamond studs make for a great everyday look, but also transition well to complete a night out look or for a formal event. “Personally, less is more. So with that being said, diamond earrings, with a diamond bracelet and ring. You want everything to complement each other and not overpower the outfit. The little black dress is usually enough for a woman, but the diamonds add that bit of sparkle to her outfit.” –Goldsmith Jewelers Inc., North Royalton, OH
Y-Shape necklaces are on trend yet have great staying power, so you know she will wear this necklace for years to come. Y-shape necklaces can be simple with diamond or gemstone accents or more substantial with pendants.
