Yes, every lady of style needs diamond stud earrings, a gorgeous eternity ring, a timeless string of pearls and a tennis bracelet (why not). But what happens when you’ve already invested in the staples of fine quality bling? Well, have you considered these iconic accessories?
The Dancing Diamond Pendant
Designed to maximise the brilliance of a diamond, the Dancing Diamond concept relies on natural movement to set off a quivering, sparkling brilliance in your diamond jewellery. This innovation has taken the global jewellery world by storm and, since last year, been making waves in South Africa. Worn with just about anything, a pendant set with a Dancing Diamond turns heads day or night.
The Right Hand Ring
Since the 1920’s flapper posse brought us the cocktail ring, women have exhibited their personal wealth and independence by donning impressive and often flamboyant rings on their right hands. The idea behind this institution is that an independent lady of means would splurge her own hard-earned bucks on a ring of her liking, worn on her right hand to avoid the jewel being misinterpreted as a wedding or engagement ring.
Although often worn by single ladies as a statement of liberty, married women also spoil themselves with right hand rings in celebrations of personal milestones.
The Pinkie Signet Ring
Since the 17th century, men have worn their correspondence authentication seal, or signet, in a ring or pendant form. Although proper wax sealing signets are rare these days, the signet-style, flat topped ring has never left the jewellery scene. Traditionally seen as a masculine status symbol, this timeless accessory is now the domain of chic ladies as well, often worn on the pinkie as per Victorian tradition.
