It’s Christmas…well nearly!

Oh my goodness, it is THAT time again where all the supermarket shelves are stocked with Christmas items, YIKES!! With Christmas being just over 3 months away we thought that we would have to jump on the Christmas bandwagon too and create a Diamond Store Wish List. I mean, who else doesn’t prompt to their partner with what they would like MONTHS in advance?

To make the process easier, we have taken a piece of The Diamond Store jewellery from each category and paired it with a Bond Street classic. Need we say more?! Our pieces win every time.

Number one on our Wish List is this gorgeous Yellow Sapphire and diamond ring.

We have paired this ring with another Sapphire ring from The Natural Sapphire Company which costs a whooping  £1695.

Number two on our Wish List are these Tanzanite and diamond white gold  flower earrings for £175.

Who says you need to spend £3,650 on a pair from Tiffany and Co (below) when ours are just as dazzling?

Third on our Wish List is this diamond cluster bracelet for £2,609!! Yes, stop drooling, we love it too.

We have matched it with Cartier’s finest which costs a steep £4,400.

 And finally, on our Wish List is this white gold diamond cluster necklace. Surely if you tell your partner three months in advance, they have time to consider it, right?!

We have matched this pendnat with a white gold diamond necklace from H.Samuel, which is  double the price for £1499.

Your Beauty Guide for Christmas

Your Beauty Guide for Christmas

As well as adorning an outfit with jewels, we at The Diamond Store LOVE a great makeup and hairstyle combination to offset your dress and jewels. The party season has arrived and we have done our best to pluck out our favourite looks to see you through to the New Year.

Sleek and Stylish

Jourdunn Dunn

The sleek pony tail has got to be on of the easiest styles to re-create at home. It offers a sophisticated, sultry and ultra preened look. Pull hair back to the crown of the head using a paddle brush and secure with a hair band. Pull a single strand from the pony tail and wrap it around the hair band to disguise it. Secure this with a bobby pin. Emerald green is the ultimate party season colour so sweep on a dark Emerald green with a hint of sparkle over the lash line or in high feline flicks like Jourdan Dunn.

Choppy Waves

hairstyle 2

A boho-esque, choppy hairstyle is perfect to create a more playful look. This can be achieved by setting the hair in rollers and brushing out once set with a fine toothed comb. If you already have a natural wave, scrunch damp hair in your hands and finish with a touch of serum for added gloss. Team this look with purple shadow. Go for a deep purple on the lash line with a softer purple working up the eye lid. Add black feline flicks for some Alexa Chung fun.

Super Straight

hairstyle 4

The classic straight blow dry adds a grown up, sultry spin to an outfit. Get the best out of this look by teaming with a smoky eye like Mila Kunis. Line eyes with a black liner and smudge in charcoals, greys and dark browns to achieve a mysterious look. Finish with lashing of mascara.

Princess Bun

hairstyle 8

Doesnt Rosie Huntington Whiteley look amazing? We love her preened bun and think it would be another perfect style for the Christmas period. Pull hair up into a pony tail and secure it at the crown. Wrap hair around the hair tie and secure with hair grips. For extra oomph and volume, invest in a hair doughnut. To get the best out of the look, we would also stick to neutral make up as the hair should do all the talking. Sweep a light brown over the lid, work in a little gold and brush just under the eyebrow with a highlighter. Also add plenty of shimmer!

I absolutely love the vibrant colour of these Tanzanite earrings. The beautiful purple/blue hue of these tanzanite gemstone earrings make them a unique choice for a gift for a loved one or as a special treat to buy for yourself! The 1CT tanzanite stones feature a silver claw setting which complements the sparkling blue of the stones perfectly. They are accessible enough for every day way or if you consider yourself or loved one a lover of simple things… then these would make the perfect, showstopping accessory for an evening outfit.

This bracelet is just WOW in every sense. The 0.25 cts of stunning sparkling diamonds are set into heart shaped silver links. It’s beautifully delicate, perfect for a lady with classic style. The piece can even been worn with a number of other bracelets for an on trend, stacking bracelet look. I’d personally team this with a crisp white shirt for work and then apply a bright statement lip for an evening re-vamp.
