Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend

Marilyn was right, and diamonds make me smile and feel so pretty! Wouldn’t you say that #DiamondsAreANeutral, and they go with everything? I’m showing you my take on how to wear fine jewelry dressed up or casual, solo or stacked, and even mixing metals.

The French are glad to die for love. They delight in fighting duels. But I prefer a man who lives and gives expensive jewels. A kiss on the hand may be quite continental, but diamonds are a girl’s best friend.  -Marilyn Monroe

When Helzberg Diamonds asked me to partner with them for a campaign, how could I refuse?! It’s so funny because Mr. S had given me a beautiful diamond necklace and studs for our anniversary, but I only wear them for special occasions. WHY?? Why not decorate yourself in fine jewelry EVERY day if you can! Participating in this campaign made me realize that I SHOULD be wearing those special pieces often!

THE STYLE Rx: Listen to Marilyn and me! Diamonds (and other precious gemstones) are a girl’s best friend. Wear them for date night and weekends, and everything in between! It’s a beautiful reminder that YOU are special enough EVERY DAY to wear that beautiful ring, necklace, or earrings.

I’m so excited to share these gorgeous EFFY jewelry pieces available at Helzberg Diamonds. Are you familiar with EFFY jewelry? Mr. Effy Hematian started as an engineer by trade and has been designing jewelry in the US since 1979. He is dedicated to quality and craftsmanship as well as bold and beautiful design! I’m OBSESSED with his signature collection which was inspired by the panther. I NEED this rose gold panther ring in my life, on my finger! If you’ve ever seen one of their ads in a fashion magazine, you’ll know! They are very memorable – a lady painted in cheetah or leopard spots wearing fine jewelry pieces.

Here we go…

OUTFIT 1 // DATE NIGHT // Oh my gosh, I WISH that Mr. S and I had more date nights! The plunging neckline on the romper is perfect to show off that beautiful emerald necklace. And black and diamonds always match right? The diamond knot ring is SUCH a stunner on its own.

OUTFIT 2 // WEEKEND ATTIRE // Maxi dresses are also my BFFs and perfect for hanging out with the family on the weekends. Here, I layered the emerald necklace with a silver/gold necklace for a casual but chic look.

OUTFIT 3 // GIRLS NIGHT OUT // I wore this outfit for a dinner date with my girlfriends. How beautiful is the emerald ring against the green trim on my off the shoulder top! It’s fun to pick up subtleties throughout your outfit.

OUTFIT 4 // BLOGGER EVENT // Some of my friends and family tell me that I live such a glamorous life! Ha! It definitely can look that way when you only see me on the blog or social media. But in reality, I’m a sleep deprived mom and wife trying to find some semblance of balance between work, life, and the blog! But I digress… Here, I’m wearing that absolutely fantastic morganite rose gold ring. I’m not afraid to mix metals, and the rose gold, yellow gold, and silver all mesh because of that fun clutch.

Do you own any special jewelry pieces? What do they mean to you, and how often do you wear them?

P.S. Helzberg Diamonds is having an EFFY Extra Event with specific pieces significantly discounted. Head into your nearest jewelers to see the pieces for yourself! Your fingers, neck, arms, and ear lobes will thank me!
