There is a whole world of inspiration to draw from when it comes to finding your own unique style. From the latest trends hitting the catwalk today, or the immaculately groomed cast of your favourite TV show, it’s easy to mix and match from different fashion movements as well as looking to the allure of the past.
Music has a special place in the creative world, transporting us to another place, another time. Songs can also be strongly linked to memory, striking a chord in our minds of that glorious summer or a mellow evening under the stars.
Choosing a diamond is a serious investment, whether you’re buying your own or looking to pop the question to the love of your life. To help guide you to the perfect fit, here is some musical inspiration for the modern girl.
For the classic girl – “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend” by Marilyn Monroe
“A kiss on the hand may be quite continental, but diamonds are a girl’s best friend.”
This enchanting tune came to us courtesy of the 1953 film, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, starring the one and only Marilyn Monroe. For the girl who has everything, as well as a flair for timeless style, there is the classic white diamond and yellow 18 carat gold ring, with a bezel centre diamond nestled by brilliant round cut diamonds on either side.
Together the Canadian Fire diamonds add up to one carat that catch the light as you move, so all heads will be on you, like Marilyn Monroe.
For the modern muse – “Diamonds” by Rihanna
“So shine bright tonight, you and I we’re beautiful like diamonds in the sky.”
If you’re after an edgier approach to this timeless piece of jewellery, walk in the vanguard footsteps of pop music idol Rihanna. Never content with following the crowd, the Barbados beauty makes her own statements in both her fashion and artistic choices.
For something a little out of the blue, there is the stunning 18 carat white gold aquamarine and diamond ring. The incredible clarity of the pale aquamarine highlights the brilliant diamonds surrounding it, for a truly unique, eye catching piece.
For the diva – “Diamonds are Forever” by Shirley Bassey
“Diamonds are forever, they are all I need to please me”
A woman who knows her own mind like the great Dame Shirley Bassey will certainly know which diamond is right for her. She commands the attention of everyone in the room with her mere presence, any other adornment is simply to add to her natural magnetism.
To emulate the elegance of this charismatic diva, look no further than the 18 carat white gold diamond ring by Je T’aime. A statement piece, this ring is made up of 78 diamonds in total, amounting in just over a carat weight – for when only the best will do.
