As Marilyn put it… diamonds are a girls best friend. No matter whether costume or genuine, jewellery is always guaranteed to add something extra to your look.
When we’re talking about the real deal though, there’s an additional excuse to splurge – on a cost per wear basis, it might not be cheap but it’s likely to be with you for quite some time. Whilst there’s always some antique / retro appeal to older styles, remember that today’s modern is tomorrow’s vintage. If you’re investing for the long haul, consider tried-and-true materials interpreted in new ways… and imagine your great-grand-daughter showing off her gorgeous family treasure.
