Discover our guide to the diamond jewellery styles you need in your collection and the best ways to wear them every day.
Can you wear diamonds daily?
Despite any traditional ‘style rules’ you might have heard, yes - you can absolutely wear diamonds as part of your everyday look. The days when diamond jewellery was reserved only for special occasions or for engagement rings are long gone, especially with so many modern and understated diamond jewellery styles to choose from.
Diamonds are the perfect piece to elevate and add brightness to your look every day; from a casual look to office wear to evening wear.
While you certainly can (and should) add diamonds to your everyday style, there are a few things to keep in mind for actually wearing them. A durable stone for regular wear, it’s still recommended to take your diamond jewellery off at the end of the day and store it safely. And while you can wear diamonds to elevate even the most casual look, we wouldn’t go so far as to pair them with swimwear – it's better to leave your fine jewellery at home when you head to the beach or pool. Give your pieces a rest between wears now and then, and clean your diamond jewellery regularly to avoid a build-up of dust or grime.

What jewellery pairs well with diamonds?
You can wear jewellery of almost any type with your diamonds, as diamonds are versatile enough to style with your favourite precious metals and coloured gemstones.
Yellow gold jewellery contrasts beautifully with diamonds and creates an on-trend look, while white gold is an elegant and classic pairing for your diamonds. Add a diamond piece to sterling silver jewellery layers to elevate a more casual look.
As well as your staple metal pieces, diamonds are the perfect complement to coloured gemstones, from pearl jewellery to emerald and sapphire. Just remember that diamonds are the hardest gemstone, so consider the placement of your diamond and other jewellery pieces to avoid too much friction which could lead to scratching. If layering necklaces, ensure each piece is a slightly different length; if stacking rings, consider which fingers you place each of them on; and if you’re stacking bracelets, make sure your individual pieces don’t move around excessively on your arm.
