Happy Birthday Sharon!

We would like to wish Sharon Osbourne a very Happy Birthday, who turns 61 tomorrow…. however she does not look a day over 30 ;-)!

Without doubt, Shazza is our favourite judge on TV, fleeting between The X Factor and America’s Got Talent. Each week she had The Diamond Store team swooning over which pair of drop-down earrings she would be modelling next.

We therefore decided to go back in time and pull out some of her best earring-moments, and pair them with our very own jewels!

First in line we have picked these beauties from Van Cleef and Arpels. However if your pockets are not deep enough for these, we have our very own diamond and white gold stunners for £199.

Next Sharon is seen modelling a pair of long drop downs which add colour to her black dress. To match these long diamond shaped earrings, we have chosen our own diamond tiered jewels, for £355.

Sllightly different to Mrs Osbourne’s classic look, she has chosen a tear drop pair with a splash of diamond sparkle. To match, we have chosen our diamond earrings with a similar shape and black detail. Beautiful!

 

What do you think of S.O’s style, and don’t you wish she would hurry up back on our screens so we can have our weekly earring-fix?

Going Ga Ga for Gold

Word is on the street that Lady Gaga married her boyfriend this weekend, however when looking for her bridal dress, all we could find is Lady Gaga and her love for gold ensembles! We therefore filtered through gazillions of pictures online to pick our favourite LG fashionista moments.

The first outfit which we have picked is the outfit she wore to the 2011 Bambi Media Awards. Is she looking freakishly cool, or a freak of nature?

Next we have picked this garish dress (if we can call it that) which Lady Gaga wore to the Chicago Gala. Lady_Gaga_Gold

This outfit is our favourite! We think she looks simply stunning (and normal) in this golden gown which she wore to the Golden Globes 2014 after party.

The next outfit is an outfit which the singer wore to dinner in Japan whilst she was on holiday. Did she pull this off as a Kimono, as it has that style… if you squint your eyes and tilt your head.

The final golden outfit which we have chosen is this golden leotard, which cheeky Lady Gaga wore during her concert in Vancouver.

We could go on for days drooling over her gold attire, however we took a moment to browse through our  jewellery collection to handpick our favourite gold pieces we think the Princess of Pop needs to know about. Wouldn’t you agree?

What’s your favorite golden Gaga outfit, and do you think her style if to die for, or to burn? Tweet us @diamondstoreuk

Happy birthday Gwyneth Paltrow… our SAPPHIRE SWEETHEART

We would like to wish Gwyneth Paltrow a very happy birthday who turns 42 on Saturday!

For those of you who live in a cave, Gwyneth is an American actress, singer, and food writer, most famous for her role in The Talented Mr Ripley.

Since her birthstone is Sapphire, we have picked three of Gwyneth’s best blue outfits and added a piece of Diamond Store jewellery.

We have added a simple sapphire necklace to match this stunning silk gown.

Get the Olivia Palermo Look!

With Fashion Week well underway, we thought we would change the tone (for now, until the shows are over) and swoon over Olivia Palermo instead.

For those of you who aren’t very familiar with Olivia Palermo, she is an American socialite and a model who keeps hitting the headlines. Olivia became more known in 2009 after being cast in the reality television series The City, which is a spin-off the popular series, The Hills.

Olivia is quite frankly seen as a total fashionista and so we have put together a little guide on how you can get the Olivia Palermo look before Winter kicks in! We have taken one of Olivia’s outfits perfect for the daytime and given you a break down on where you can get her look from, and of course we have added a piece of The Diamond Store jewellery to finish the OP ensemble.

Olivia is wearing a white Elizabeth and James Chambers dress which is £200 (at the time this article was written) and can be found on the Elizabeth and James’ website.

Here Miss Palermo is sporting a white Bulgari cross-body bag with black detail and an embellished buckle. We have picked the same bag but in coral. Why not add a little bit of colour to the outfit? The bag is £1246.91 and can be found on farfetch.com.

She wore her outfit with some metallic pink Habbot oxfords. Seeing we have gone for a coral bag, we decided to go for baby pink lace-up brogues. They are £294.88 also from farfetch.com.

Finally to complete the look, we have a added a gold Pink Sapphire and diamond ring available from http://www.thediamondstore.co.uk

 

To turn this outfit into an evening one, why not add some heels and a blazer and take the hat off?

We hope to see Miss OP clones strutting around with thanks to our style guide! Which look of hers is your favourite? Tweet us @diamondstoreuk

We have matched each of her outfits with a top pick from The Diamond Store. After all there’s no better way to celebrate her birthday than to dress like the Diva herself!
