How to wear springtime diamonds

Anyone with a birthday in April knows that diamond is the birthstone of the month, meaning you have a great excuse to wear and buy this sparkly gem. But even those who aren't lucky enough to have a girl's best friend as their birthstone have plenty of reason to wear diamonds this spring as it is ideal to work with SS15 trends.

Diamond jewellery works so well with a number of fashions that are going to be hitting the high street over the next few months. This means that you can incorporate this must-own gem into your style for both day and night – which obviously means you need to treat yourself to a couple of pieces!

While you might think that diamonds are a bit pricey for your bank balance, TJC has you covered, as we have a gorgeous range of diamond jewellery that can suit any budget. Now you can buy diamonds without feeling guilty about opening your purse!

So exactly how should you be wearing this gorgeous stone over the next few months? Here are some of our favourite looks that show off diamond jewellery in all its glory:

Diamond Earrings

Over the last few months, studs have reigned supreme as the must-wear style of earrings. However, as a very specific neckline has become popular, dangly and chandelier[-]style earrings are the new star of any jewellery box.

Plunging necklines were one of the most popular looks among the celebs throughout award season and the look has remained strong on the catwalk since. The trend is characterised by a deep V-neckline, showing off plenty of skin – a style that isn't for the faint-hearted!

It is ideal for elongating the neck and showing a bit of classy cleavage, especially as the style works with simple dresses or more glitzy designs; allowing it to fit with anyone's personal preference.

You might think that such a low neckline would look great with a necklace; however, this can actually unbalance the effect. Instead, larger earring styles are the way to go – especially if you wear your hair up or to one side.

These gorgeously-ornate Diamond Lever Back Earrings are the ideal choice if you're going to dare to bare this season, as they will make any outfit look red carpet ready. The traditional pattern is really detailed, making it ideal for glamming up simple styles, while the silver tone will catch the light at all times.  

Statement Diamond Rings

SS15 has got a great range of statement jewellery on offer, but there is one piece that is really coming into its own as we head into the warmer season.

Statement rings are now a firm must-have, with this formerly innocuous piece of jewellery being used as the main focus for a number of different looks. Whether you wear a single statement ring, team it with more subtle rings for a modern look, or go all out and put plenty of bling on your fingers, this is one trend you can't ignore.

Great for extra glamour at night or for brightening up your daytime ensemble – after all, the sun is going to make sure any diamonds really sparkle over the next few months, large, statement diamond rings are the ultimate accessory for SS15.

Pieces like this Diamond and Platinum Overlay Ring are perfect for the season and are sure to work with any style. As well as being super-sparkly, the ring also has lots of detail so is sure to catch the eye. 

You could even team it with more modern styles – like this Diamond and Platinum Overlay 'Love' Ring – for a varied and interesting look. The contrast between the two design types will make your jewellery stand out even more and add some interest to your look. 

Small Diamond Pendants

Pretty pendants are perfect for spring, especially if you want a subtle touch of sparkle. They work great with any look and can be worn either individually or teamed with other pendants set on chains of varying lengths to create a simple but effective style.

Small diamond pendants work with boho chic, prints or soft pastels and are ideal for day and night. From floral designs to traditional pieces, this trend is totally open to personal preference.

Something like this simple and elegant Diamond Circle Pendant with Chain could be the ideal choice. The simple shape will work with anything, providing glitter without being over-the-top. 

Alternatively, a classic style like this 9K White Gold Diamond Pendant with Chain will provide you with a timeless style that will be completely versatile. The piece will always be in fashion, providing a necklace that can be worn no matter the season and for any occasion.
