If you’re going to a more upscale restaurant, you’ll want to dress for the occasion. Try wearing a cocktail dress in a jewel-toned color to help you stand out from the sea of black you’ll find at most restaurants. Pair your cocktail dress with nude heels and some classic but sexy jewelry, like these diamond hoop earrings and this delicate round diamond pendant.

If you’re going to a slightly more casual spot for dinner, like a wine bar or a gastropub, try wearing dark jeans and a leather jacket. You can wear this with a cute, flowing top to make sure that this outfit still feels soft and feminine. Pair this look with cute black boots and fun jewelry. We love the cool look of these black diamond trinity earrings and black diamond pendant necklace.

Diamond studs are classic pieces that have remained in style for decades, so it should be no surprise that they are still extremely popular in 2017. One of the best things about diamond studs is that, because they are so popular, you can get them in a huge range of styles to help you personalize them. Consider the personality of the person you are shopping for when selecting their diamond studs. Are they more traditional? Then they might prefer classic round white diamonds in a white gold setting, like the dazzling pair pictured above. Or are they more eclectic and bold? Try selecting a less common choice, like pear-shaped diamond studs or yellow diamond studs in a complimentary gold setting.

2. Oval Diamond Pendant

Oval shaped diamonds have been an up-and-coming trend this year. This is likely due to more and more women seeking out unique jewelry styles. Oval diamonds have this unique look while also still being similar enough to a round diamond that they are extremely wearable. A classic, delicate diamond pendant is a great way to incorporate the oval diamond trend in a beautiful and easy-to-wear piece she’ll love.

3. Colored Diamond Ring

Rose gold was also very popular at this time, with its soft pink glow being coveted by many women. This stunning blue diamond and rose gold solitaire ring is a great way to rock the vintage trend.
