Men grow cold as girls grow old
And we all lose our charms in the end
But square-cut or pear-shaped
These rocks don’t lose their shape
Diamonds are a girl’s best friend
— from the movie “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes”
If diamonds are a girl’s best friend then jewelry is her soul sister! Jewelry is such a powerful accessory that many choose one fabulous piece and build an outfit around it. You can ruin a perfectly great outfit by wearing the wrong jewelry.
Before we get into what and how to where jewelry there are some no-nos that you should be aware of. Relax – these are too tough to follow!
Don’t overdo it with jewelry. Keep it simple. Wear no more than one big piece such as earrings or necklace. Don’t wear an ankle bracelet or toe ring with a dressy outfit.
It can look trashy.
“A diamond is forever,” as the old saying goes. The late actress Marilyn Monroe said it best: “a diamond is a girl’s best friend.” So much tribute has been paid to the everlasting glory of the diamond, which is among the most valuable (and expensive!) precious stones in existence.
