Nothing makes us happier than the bright sunshine, flowers blossoming and people in shades. A sign that spring/summer is officially coming after a bitterly cold winter in the UK.
Everyone enjoys colourful clothing in the sunny seasons, especially the ultimate stlye icon, Olivia Palermo, and to go with vivid outfits, The Diamond Store has chosen some of our favourite jewellery pieces that will compliment them beautifully.
Pearl & Sapphire 9K Gold Ring
Emerald 4x6mm and Diamond 9K White Gold Earrings
18K Gold Diamond and Ruby Claw Set Link Bracelet
Amethyst 2.78CT and Diamond 9K White Gold Necklace
Between Amethyst, Ruby, Emerald and Sapphire stones, these jewels are sure to brighten up your outfits this Spring. We have carefully selected these particular pieces as they are delicate and understated, being able to be worn with an elegant evening gown, a summery skirt or perhaps a casual jeans look.

Every year, the Oscars are undoubtedly the most exciting event on TV that we all love to watch and every year, we are more shocked and surprised at the winners. We don’t know about you, but we are stunned that Leo Di Caprio is still yet to win an Oscar!
Nevertheless, it’s always a great night – we love seeing the couples, the singles, who makes the best speech and obviously who wore what.
There were some fantastic outfits this year at the Academy Awards – Lupita Nyong’o, winning best supporting actress for her role in ’12 Years A Slave’, looked absolutely divine in her baby blue fairytale Prada dress. She wore a silver headband with it, her hair pulled back and a pair of outstanding diamond earrings, to create a true princess look.
Charlize Theron also looked totally spectacular in a black Dior dress and Harry Winston Jewels and understated makeup. Another favourite look of ours for the night was Angelina Jolie in her sleek Elie Saab dress – and, of course, Brad Pitt is never a bad accessory! She also wore an outstanding pair of drop diamond earrings that worked beautifully with her gold gown, with no need for more jewellery other than her wedding ring.
At the Diamond Store, we love to give you some ideas on how you can ‘get the look’, so we have done so with these Oscar attendees:

In awe of Elizabeth Taylor, and considering today would have been her 80th birthday, the Diamond Store simply has to dedicate a whole blog post to her!
Elizabeth Taylor was worldly known for her acting, but specifically for the fabulous jewellery she wore. She never failed to surprise with her pieces – everyone wanted to get their hands on the emerald necklaces, the big diamonds, the pearls.
The Collection of Elizabeth Taylor broke a world record for the most valuable jewels sold at an auction, which generated £74million in just one evening. Needless to say, every single item was sold.
At The Diamond Store, we have chosen a number of pieces to get the Liz Taylor look. Here are a few we would highly recommend:
Emerald 0.75CT and Diamond 9K White Gold Pendant.
0.78 Diamond and 9K White Gold Earrings.
9K White Gold Pink Diamond Sapphire Ring 0.14CT
Not only did Taylor design jewellery for The Elizabeth Collection, she also created eleven different perfumes, acted, spoke publicly about society’s issues, despite being told that this could ruin her career, dealt with scoliosis and osteoporosis, having to undergo brain surgery to remove a benign tumour, obtaining pneumonia three times and then skin cancer, to finally having congestive heart failure being the cause of her tragic death. She was truly an inspiration to many and her legacy will always live on.

The Diamond Store’s Heart & Kisses is a fantastic present idea, it is a graceful yet intricate look and, of course, the diamonds make it that extra bit more special. We are a big fan of bracelets as you can stack them with other bracelets – no need to decide on just one to wear!
Our Blue Topaz earrings are a seriously exceptional look – the blue in them often catches the natural light so they are always glistening and sparkly! (Women love sparkly. Men – take note!) These are the ideal event earrings, so if your Mum/wife/girlfriend has a party to attend this year, what better present to receive than a pair of diamond and white gold earrings!

The Brit Awards, where we can all get over excited about new and upcoming artists, listen to great music and find out who we need to call the fashion police on and who looked spectacular.
For us at The Diamond Store, we were immersed in the beautiful jewellery that was shown. We are never disappointed at the diamonds and jewels at events like The Brits and we can’t wait to share our ideas and thoughts with you.
Firstly, we saw Lily Allen covered up in a gorgeous navy sequin dress along with some bright yellow hair extensions to add a pop of colour. She wore a fabulous pair of outstanding diamond earrings, which, when wearing a full-length, dark dress, totally finish off the look, with no need to add more jewellery.
18K White Gold Diamond Earrings
These white gold diamond drop earrings from The Diamond Store are a fantastic statement. The beauty about this pair is, they fit with every outfit. So, if you have a birthday coming up soon – you know what to ask for!
Rita Ora also made an appearance at The Brits last night with DJ boyfriend, Calvin Harris. She wore a revealing yellow Prada gown, along with at least six rings! We couldn’t get enough.
Diamond 9K White Gold Ring
Big Fancy Ring Diamond 9K Yellow Gold
Both of these rings are a perfect way to stand out with your jewellery. They look great on their own, with small rings or even a pair of small diamond studs. If the style is good enough for Rita Ora, it’s certainly good enough for us!

These earrings are an all time favourite of The Diamond Store’s. Emeralds, being the symbol of hope, in the form of a pair of earrings or a ring, will look beautiful with a simple black dress, or even a deep aubergine gown. The diamonds formed around this particular pair will make the green in the centre of the earring show even more. You will be sure to receive thousands of positive comments on these!
