SPRINKLING OF DIAMONDS
12th June 2017
Intricate and playful designs are the go to for cocktail jewellery. Large lattice creations and dotted diamond pendants are summer party essentials.
No sprinkling is too much, try layering delicate diamonds.
This season, it is all about the details: the cuffs edged with strips of faux pearls at Gucci, the tasselled high necklines at Dries van Noten. Embellishment is everything. Add some interest to simple, feminine jewellery motifs by opting for gold or silver that has been accented with tiny orbs to create a beaded edge.
The solar system is having a moment this season. Thierry Mugler dedicated an entire runway show to its jagged star motif, while Maison Margiella presented a shimmering, dystopian view of the future, and Atelier Versace created alien-like full sequin body suits with sharp, angular shoulders and corsetry.
There is nothing quite as charming as a dainty diamond necklace. Whether it’s one solitary beautiful diamond or a personalised initial pendant, size isn’t everything when it comes to gorgeous design. Ideally paired with an ensemble for a special occasion or simply a way to add a touch of sparkle to everyday life, delicate diamonds are the perfect addition to your jewellery collection.
