Diamonds and sapphires – probably it’s hard to find a better combination of jewels. These gorgeous gemstones look amazing separately and even better when worn together.
Minimal vs Over-the-Top Looks
When it comes to combining gemstones, all depends only on your personal taste. Some people choose over-the-top looks, others prefer to stay minimal.
In a large variety of designs, you may look for pieces that feature both diamonds and sapphires or you may want to find pieces that use the stones on their own and then wear them together.
Another great mix can make a diamond solitaire pendant paired with sapphire stud earrings. All these pieces can still be worn individually or with other jewellery combinations you prefer.
What to Wear when Pairing Gemstones
Gemstone combinations are to add a unique look to your outfit. The best is to keep your look fairly basic and let your gems grab the attention.
If old Céline is your go-to style, you can never go wrong with a mix of diamonds and sapphires. Various shades of grey, white, beige and black will allow your stones pop.
We wouldn’t recommend wearing blue clothes with blue sapphires. Better keep it simple and let the blue in gemstones steal the show.
In everyday life, you can wear hair up and apply minimal makeup to emphasize the beauty of the stones, but again your choice fully depends on your personal taste.
How to Pair Other Jewellery with Diamonds and Sapphires
If you have diamond and sapphire jewellery pieces, you can easily pair them with other jewellery as well. The only thing to consider is choosing gemstones that won’t look mismatched. Play only with high-quality gemstones.
For example, you can always combine your pieces with other gemstones in the same/similar or contrast colours. Just make sure that the rest of your jewellery is high-quality since plastic or wooden pieces can easily bring your look down. And what is even worse such pieces may make your precious stones look fake.
When to Wear Diamonds and Sapphires?
It all depends on your lifestyle and job.
Simple and smaller pieces can be worn every day. Your everyday jewellery should not be too bold and conspicuous. Of course, if you are a lucky owner of a large diamond or sapphire engagement ring, that’s an exception.
Formal events or occasions are perfect for bringing out large and bold pieces. Diamond and sapphire jewellery looks perfect with classic suits and evening gowns.
Whatever the look and occasion, diamond and sapphire pieces are modern and classic at the same time. Simply follow these tips to style them, and you will always look gorgeous.
