The diamond tennis bracelet was my first piece in my diamond collection. The reason it was added so early on to my collection is because it’s a versatile, timeless piece of jewelry that is easy to wear and style. It can be worn by itself, with a watch, or even stacking with other investment jewelry

For me, I love when diamonds are set in a bracelet and when this bracelet is worn and the light catches it just right, it radiates and gives off an abundance of sparkle! I ended up purchasing the tennis bracelet in white gold, which makes the diamonds appear bigger. The diamond bracelet is perfect for anyone who is looking for a classic bracelet that you will wear for years to come. If you take good care of it, you can pass it down to future generations, making it an important piece for building your diamond collection! Shop diamond Tennis Bracelets.

The most recent addition to my diamond collection is the single diamond pendent necklace! My husband, Aaron, bought this necklace for me when we found out we were pregnant and I’ve been wearing it ever since. The simplicity of this necklace is brilliant! What I love about the single diamond necklace is how easy it is to style, you can wear it with formal wear or even with a casual outfit. 

This is such a timeless piece that can be worn for years to come and passed down to generations. I love both the lab grown diamond necklaces and natural diamond necklaces.

Diamond Stud Earrings

I’ve always been a huge fan of diamond earrings and the simplicity of this piece. I decided to purchase these earrings with white gold prongs to really make the earrings pop. One thing to keep in mind when ordering diamond earrings is that when you see the carat weight, it’s the combined weight of the earrings. 

Of all my earrings, my diamond earrings are by far the easiest to style. They are a timeless piece that is simple, goes with a variety of outfits, adds a level of sophistication and elegance, and can easily be matched with your other jewelry. Personally, I find that my diamond earrings enhance my look. Shop diamond stud earrings.

The diamond eternity ring is a perfect addition to your diamond collection. I love my and layer it with my Cartier love ring!  It’s so easy to style that it can be worn with other jewelry both white and yellow gold, can be layered, or can be worn as a standalone piece.

Diamond eternity rings come in a variety of carat sizes. If you purchase a diamond eternity ring with smaller diamonds, this is perfect for everyday use. If you purchase a diamond eternity ring with large diamonds, this is more of a statement piece. The larger the diamonds on the eternity ring, the more they sparkle, but don’t underestimate the smaller diamonds, they do a great job at adding sparkling to your ring stack.

Diamond Engagement Ring

When building your diamond collection, the diamond engagement ring or diamond wedding ring is a great addition for your collection. For many people, this is where their diamond collection starts. Diamond engagement rings are often associated with love and commitment. A diamond engagement ring is a timeless piece of jewelry that you will wear every day. I recommend opting for a simple design instead of trying to go for a more trendy diamond engagement ring design. By choosing a timeless, simple design you will ensure that in 5, 10 even 50 years from now you’ll still love it. 

If you are looking for a diamond engagement ring alternative, I've written an entire article about alternative options that would make for a great engagement ring.

When purchasing diamonds, you have the option to purchase lab grown diamonds or natural diamonds. Physically, they are both exactly the same. The only difference is Natural diamonds take millions of years to create in the Earth's mantel, while lab grown diamonds are created in a lab. Lab grown diamonds are significantly more affordable… on average they are 30-45% cheaper than natural diamonds. 

My go-to place to purchase diamonds is from Brilliant Earth. They have such high quality diamonds and great customer service. I have also purchased diamond jewelry at James Allen and Blue Nile and received wonderful diamonds.
