Timeless and classic, a Vashi bespoke pair of earrings will wow whatever the occasion. Perfect for sophisticated soirées and upcoming Christmas parties, a pair of signature diamond earrings are a staple for any fashionista’s jewellery box. I would opt for as clear a diamond as possible (IF or VVS1) when designing or purchasing the jewels due to the enhancement in the clarity and sparkle, alongside a dazzling colour such as D. However, whatever your budget, there is something to suit everyone. Whether the cut is Round (like I’ve chosen), Princess or Asscher, team with a striking embellished LBD. This creates an eye-catching party look or you could opt to surprise a loved on on Christmas Day with a pair of delicate yet desirable diamond studs giving the full wow factor! Wear with a centre parting (as seen on the Burberry catwalk) or add a chic updo and smokey eye to create a memorable effect that really accentuates the sparkle in your diamonds.
Aside from earrings you can also create styles like this striking halo pendant (above) set in precious platinum. Apparently there is no better way to say “I Love You” than with a diamond and as Marilyn Monroe so famously sang, “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.” So, partners take note! If you are looking to spoil a loved one this Christmas (or for any special occasion) then why not elect for a stunning bespoke diamond pendant. At Vashi, you can choose from a range of stunning designs, including this 21 round side stone diamond pendant that can be set with an array of sizes from 0.25ct to 5ct creating a lust-worthy piece for any diamond lover. Wear alongside a plunging neckline or jumpsuit and statement heels to really emphasize and highligh the diamond sparkle on a décolletage – perfect for the party season ahead.
