Why Diamonds Are Always in Style

17 Apr, 2019 diamonds header

Even the word Diamond is synonymous with dazzling quality, timelessness and refined style. The gemstone itself has been treasured for centuries, prized for its spectacular sparkle and unique hardness. Diamond is April’s birthstone, and it is also the suggested 60th wedding anniversary gift. “If you were born in April and you have a husband or partner who loves buying you Diamonds, lucky you!” says Kiki. “Because of their brilliance and clarity, I use Diamonds to add sparkle to pieces. There are lots of ways to wear them that are as fun as they are flattering,” and several of Kiki’s collections demonstrate this winning combination in exquisite fashion.

Diamonds Studs

This dazzling collection of earrings places Diamonds front and centre every time. Opt for the symmetrical hooped Yellow Gold and Diamond stud earrings; they have a feminine shape and suit every colouring. If you prefer White Gold, you’ll love the Lotus earrings – teardrop White Gold and Diamond studs – and Viola, circular studs with an intricate centre design, also in White Gold.

 

Lace

The Lace collection, in 18ct White or Yellow Gold and set with Diamonds, blends Kiki’s much-loved contemporary style with centuries-old design; a family heirloom – Kiki’s grandmother’s brooch – with a motif like Chantilly lace inspired its pattern. Standout pieces include a delicate long necklace – its lace motif alternately features a solitary Diamond and pave-set Diamonds – and a spectacularly unique ring, which combines Diamonds with White and Yellow Gold.

 

Special Editions

Diamonds play a significant role in Kiki’s Special Editions jewellery; they are used to complement each carefully chosen gemstone, and they add their own natural sparkle to every piece. Pale pink Morganite stones, set in earrings inspired by the earth’s floral bounty, are surrounded by twinkling Diamonds, and so too is this Green Tourmaline stone, taking centre stage in this extraordinary, one-of-a-kind pendant.

 

Lola

These are Diamonds for the truly 21st century woman. Turn the classic into the contemporary and transform your everyday look with the modern Lola hoops collection. Choose from a sparkling range of interlocking and double and triple hoop designs, all of which make quite the sartorial statement.

 

Amity

“A knot, which can be very pretty and feminine, is always symbolic of friendship so that’s where the inspiration for this collection came from,” Kiki explains. In White, Yellow and Rose Gold, Amity comprises delicate stud hoops, necklaces, bangles and bracelets, perfect for taking on one’s travels – especially given the subtle nod to the nautical trend. “You could club together and give something from Amity to one of your best friends on a special occasion,” Kiki suggests. “It’s a very good collection for weddings, as people are of course tying the knot!”

 

Juno

Inspired by sunflowers, the Juno collection is made up of a stunning array of necklaces, earrings, rings and bracelets. Each petal is an individually set stone in a striking shade – namely, Citrine, Lemon Quartz, Green or Lavender Amethyst and Blue Topaz –  and these are surrounded by Diamonds, designed to catch the light as sunflowers do when following the sun.
