Whether you have a pair of studs, drops or hoops, diamond earrings are a great addition to any outfit. But as with any other jewellery piece, you need to learn how to wear diamond earrings to make them look gorgeous on you. Read further to discover our tips and great styling ideas.
Types of Diamond Earrings
Before you can figure out how to wear diamond earrings, you need to consider their type and size.
Other popular styles are diamond drop or chandelier earrings, which hang gracefully from your ear and add a touch of elegance to your outfit.
Finally, many women are big fan of diamond hoop earrings. This modern style features a row of diamonds set into a hoop made of precious metals.
When to Wear Diamond Earrings
In days past, diamond earrings were only for special occasions. Today, the rules have changed, and you can wear your diamonds every single day.
Of course, it depends on the style of your earrings, but diamond studs, for example, are versatile for any occasion so you can wear them all the time.
Diamond drop and hoop earrings can also be versatile, but it all depends on their size. If you own a pair of small hoops or drops, it’s safe to wear them whenever you want. Larger hoops, drops and chandeliers are not ideal for everyday wear. Instead, they are more suitable for special occasions.
What to Pair with Diamond Earrings
One of the best things about diamonds is that they work great with other types of gemstones and jewellery. For example, diamond earrings look great with sapphire or emerald pendants and rings. However, you should be very careful not to overdo it.
Minimalism is the key. Try to keep your other jewellery simple and make sure the rest of your jewellery is high quality. Better forget about the statement and multicolour pieces as they can easily bring your look down.
Also, you should not wear too many gemstones as different colours may easily ruin your look. Your earrings should be the centre of attention. Once you follow these rules, you should be fine.
What to Wear with Diamond Earrings
While you can wear your diamond earrings with any outfit, some style choices can help to draw attention to your jewellery.
Diamonds look amazing with all-black or dark outfits. Colour contrast will add your style an extra sparkle.
If you’d rather wear something more casual, you can always try to pair your diamonds with a white t-shirt and a pair of classy jeans or dark pants. To add a little more charm pair your earrings with a tiny diamond pendant and give your diamonds the spotlight they deserve.
And last but not least, you should consider your hairstyle. Depending on your outfit and whether you want to highlight your earrings, you can try a slicked-back updo. For a romantic or glamorous look, you can curl your hair and pin it back. Finally, wear your hair down if you don’t want to draw too much attention to your diamond earrings.
