Or, if she doesn’t seem to have a metal preference, you can choose your metal based on what you think would look best with her coloring (meaning her skin, eyes, and hair).

Iconic Looks From the Met Gala

Zendaya channels Joan of Arc in a custom Versace gown at the 2018 Met Gala.

The Met Gala is always one of the most thrilling days of the year in the fashion world. Each year, we see stars sporting incredible, avant-garde looks inspired by the gala’s theme. This year’s theme was “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.” The theme was designed to create a dialogue between fashion and the stunning artistic representations of Catholicism featured in many of the Met’s religious artworks. Below are some of our favorite looks from the Met Gala

Lana Del Rey in custom Gucci.

Stars took many different approaches to dressing in this years theme. Some took the theme more literally by recreating specific artistic representations of Catholicism, like Lana Del Rey who wore a custom Gucci dress that featured a heart centerpiece affixed with daggers, a reference to classic artistic depictions of Our Lady Of Sorrows.

Rihanna stunned in Maison Margiela and a borrowed mitre.

Rihanna, one of the evening’s cohosts (and always one to watch at the Met Gala), also took a more literal approach, wearing a richly embellished papal-inspired ensemble. She even borrowed a real cardinal’s hat, which was loaned to her by Cardinal Timothy Dolan.

Along with all the richly brocaded and boldly iconographic looks worn at the gala, we saw two kinds of jewelry: oversized, show-stopping pieces (like the evening’s many tiaras and headdresses) and simple, classic pieces that served to accent and compliment stars’ bold ensembles without overpowering them.

Rihanna chose both a bold headpiece and more subtle jewelry to compliment her look. Here you can see her accessorizing with several pairs of small, gorgeous diamond hoops.

Get the look: Round Diamond Hoops in White Gold and Round Diamond Hoops in Yellow Gold.

Ariana Grande stunned in a custom Vera Wang dress that replicated some of the iconic art found in the Sistine Chapel. 

Ariana chose to accessorize her heavenly ensemble with only one piece of jewelry, a stunning pair of large round white diamond studs.

Get the look: Round Diamond Studs in 14k White Gold.

Diamond studs proved particularly popular among stars this year, with many stars choosing to accessorize with their simple beauty, as to not distract from their bold ensembles.

Kylie Jenner chose to wear large diamond studs as well, making her first major public appearance since giving birth to her daughter Stormi in a sleek black velvet Alexander Wang gown accessorized with small sunglasses and cushion cut diamond studs. 

Check out this guide for choosing quality diamond studs.

Get the 2018 Oscars Red Carpet Look

2018 was a stand out year for the Oscars, from the #metoo moments to the bright and shimmering fashion. This year’s fashion showcased some refreshing new trends. Gone are the intricate illusion-style dresses that were so popular a few years ago. In their place, we saw some lovely minimalist gowns that added bright pops of color to the carpet, alongside classic black, white, and nude dresses that harkened back to old Hollywood glamour in a modern way. This year, stars also turned to more classic jewelry pieces to complement their chic gowns, which added even more glamour and elegance to this year’s red carpet.

The studs on Gadot were a perfect choice, as they echoed the beauty of her shimmering gown without pulling too much attention. Using simple diamond studs here, along with having her hair pulled back in a sleek chignon, kept her look from becoming gaudy; instead, she looked incredibly chic.

Williams chose jewelry that echoed her beauty of the gown without overpowering it, wearing only a simple diamond tennis bracelet and an elegant pair of dangling diamond chandelier earrings.

The Benefits of DIAMONDS (Diamond Jewelry)

4-14pt1

Those who have their birthday in April are lucky: their birthstone is the coveted diamond. Diamonds are one of the most sought after precious stones in the world. But why exactly are diamonds deemed so desirable?

  1. They’re Strong

4-14pt2

One huge benefit of diamonds is their incredible durability. It is the hardest naturally occurring material on Earth, which means that it’s unlikely to get scratched or damaged by basically anything. Diamonds are so hard that they are often used in machine production to cut or grind industrial materials. Diamonds also have an incredibly high melting point— they can even survive being engulfed in flames!

  1. They’re Beautiful

4-14pt3

All gemstones are beautiful, of course, but diamonds have a specific brilliance that outshines the rest. This is because they have the most clarity of any gemstone, meaning that they can shine the most light. And most diamonds are cut specifically to increase their light reflection and refraction so that they shine even more and truly steal the spotlight.

  1. They’ve Got Variety

4-14pt4

White diamonds are some of the most versatile gemstones. Their clear color goes with anything. But diamonds can actually form in a huge array of colors like blue, green, yellow, or pink. Today, you can even color treat white diamonds, making them any color you like. This makes diamonds as versatile as a rainbow!

  1. They’re An Investment

4-14pt5

Diamonds are one of the most precious and therefore expensive stones. Diamonds sell for a high price so, when you buy one, you’re buying an investment piece that carries a great value.

  1. They’re Meaningful

4-14pt6

Perhaps the most compelling benefit of wearing diamonds is the loving meaning behind the gemstone. Diamonds represent the idea of “forever.” Giving a diamond is a loving gesture. It is a gift that symbolizes the eternity of a bond of love, whether it be a marital bond, a familial bond, or a bond of friendship.

4-14pt7

Diamonds are a great gift anytime but are an especially good gift for April birthdays. If you’re in the market for diamonds this April, you’re in luck: we’re having a spring sale!
