DIAMONDS IN A SEA OF BLACK

In a season of classics... the little black dress or evening gown (or a sari when we consider the Indian fashion landscape) rules eveningwear. But in a world where so many women are relying on one color to look hot, it can be difficult to stand out in the sea of black. Muddling over it, I logged on to the Internet for some research and here's what I found: we all know diamond jewellery complements a black ensemble but not all of us are acquainted with the art of pairing the correct piece of jewellery with a particular look. Below are some illustrations that come with a warranty of making head turns!!

Rupali-I will, as and when I get images of people wearing stylish jewellery!! Thanks for the suggestion!! Malini- Kamar-Bandh, Baju-Bandh, nosepins - they all look stunning, one just needs to know the basics of complementing attire-with jewellery-with makeup and hairstyle!

Josephine - it's not just the LBD and diamonds, there are a 100 fashionable things the world has learned from Marilyn!! Garima - thanks, Ramiya - Yeah, bangles would go with the look! I agree!

Kareena's look woul be perfect with gold hoops which are very hot Internationally on the catwalk or maybe some slim gold bangles. Subtle and simple.

I would have loved to see Marilyn Monroe's iconic LBD and diamonds - that's where the trend started.

Oops from the size of the picture I thought it was a cuff (silly me!)

Mandira and Harshita- I agree with you, At the workplace, you can't afford to go OTT. Diamond earrings, solitaire rings , pearls etc make for great office wear. BTW - That's not a diamond cuff, it's a diamond ring - perfect for office wear!

I had become too lazy to take some jewels out of the bank vault but now I will. I'm 38 when will I wear it??

I liked reading this piece!!

To play it safe, I wear solitaire earrings or statement ring to the workplace. I'm a corporate lawyer. A diamond cuff in my workplace would encourage talk. But then if you work in fashion or hospitality it's a great choice!!

Hmm I dont quite agree with pendant and sari. Of course that's only my opinion. I believe a lovely chandelier earring would look better with such a traditional sari. Or simply bangles. So the sari is the main focus which is what I believe Kareena has done here. Do you agree?

lovely.. I can see the effort you've made!!

Pairing jewellery with the look can be daunting at times! is it OTT? oe too tiny to be seen? I'm always at a loss. The picture above with the diamond cuff... are you suggesting that is good for the workplace? I've often wondered.
