Why women love to wear diamonds?
A diamond has the power to mesmerize any girl with it’s splendor and sparkle. It’s a status symbol and signifies endless love.
Throughout centuries diamonds have been collected and presented as luxurious gifts. There is a charm and desire to own diamonds and wear them.
Wearing diamonds everyday makes many women feel more luxurious and beautiful. This feeling stems from the idea that royal families and celebrities wear diamonds on a day to day basis.
This article is a expansion of my conversation with Esta on the podcast Poised and Polished. I’ll share with you why exactly do women love to wear diamonds? What feelings and emotions are triggered by wearing diamonds and things that matter most to a woman.
To understand why women wear diamonds, I reached out to five professional women who I knew. Each one of them comes from a different educational and cultural background. And they had a unique story tied to the diamond jewelry they own.
Below are some of the answers on what diamond jewelry means to them and why they choose to wear diamonds.
“I think diamonds are a way of showing your personal style (yes, more expensive than other jewelry) but even non-wealthy people will work their tail off to save for some diamonds!” – Trisha S., CEO at Brown Girl Magazine
“I prefer to wear diamond jewelry on an everyday basis because it goes with any outfit I wear. I don’t have to think about what jewelry will match my outfit. It also feels classy, sophisticated and chic in it. Plus I am not spending money on some cheap jewelry to wear every day instead diamond jewelry will last longer” – Ashvini M., internationally recognized health and wellness coach
“For me, it reminds me of the person I love and gave it to me.” – Hedieh S., professional hairstylist
“I’m a very simple girl when it comes to jewelry. When I️ was married I️ only wore my engagement ring and wedding band. It was meaningful and that’s my favorite part of wearing jewelry. I️ have never owned diamond earrings. I know that once I️ do, I️ will never take them off. I️ don’t associate diamonds with showing off. I️ admire seeing a massive diamond on someone’s finger! I️ think they are beautiful to look at.” – Jessica T., fashion blogger
“I’m not a big jewelry person. So the few pieces that I have are usually more sentimental, for instance when my grandma passed she left me this huge cocktail ring that she bought when she worked at a jewelry store, when I wear it I think of my grandma and what her life must have been like. So to me, wearing jewelry is more of a memory of a person, I feel close to that person. The other pieces I have are from my husband and when I had my daughter, my mom also gave me my birthstone” – Amy W., architect
By now, you’ve figured it out that diamond jewelry is not just any piece of accessory. The jewelry creates stories, meaningful memories and a family heritage while making you look beautiful every day.
Diamond jewelry helps women live a minimalist life
I feel wearing fine jewelry completely helps me live a minimalist life.
You ask, “How come?”
Let me explain.
Having a few pieces of fine jewelry that are timeless instead of several pieces of costume jewelry is what makes my life easy. It saves me the trouble of matching my outfits with my jewelry. The best part is that I also look and feel fabulous.
For example, I wear a pair of diamond studs every day and almost never change them except for a wedding or other cultural events. They look great every time I wear. I wear to late night parties as well as to the gym.
I can’t emphasize how much time and money you will save by not repeatedly buying costume jewelry. And precious jewels remain with you forever and you can eventually pass it on to the next generation. It’s an investment that can keep growing with time, make you look good and most importantly feel good about your choices.
One can spend thousands of dollars on costume jewelry. With changing trends, you feel like chasing new designs and styles. If that’s what you enjoy, go for it. With fine jewelry, we can simplify our lives so we can focus on the things that matter the most.
I also own a few nice diamond pendants and necklaces. I wear them when I feel like accessorizing, but on a normal day, you’ll see me wear a pair of diamond studs, my engagement rings and a statement ring on the other hand. And these pieces match every outfit!
You may say, well I live on a budget, cannot afford fine jewelry. For this reason, I choose costume jewelry.
But I recommend you to add up how much you’ve spent on costume jewelry. You’ll quickly realize that if you had saved up the same amount, you could own fine jewelry pieces what you’ll cherish for a lifetime and they won’t diminish in value.
To sum up the most important reasons women love diamonds is for memories of their loved ones, creates memories, an investment and saves money in long run and above everything it makes a woman feel beautiful and more confident.
I hope this is making sense. This is a topic that has never been talked about or discussed. I would love to hear your thoughts and what jewelry means to you personally.
