How to buy diamond jewelry for men and women
When we talk about jewelry most people think of women’s jewelry. It is the first thing that comes to mind. However there are so many stunning pieces of jewelry that are fantastic for men. There are unisex jewelry pieces like tennis chain jewelry that can come in bracelets or necklaces and the likes. As well as rings and some more masculine pieces that are generally marketed as men’s jewelry. Even when these are men’s tennis bracelet styles very similar to women’s tennis bracelets. After all diamonds are for everyone and who does not love the dazzling glittering shine that they give? When it comes to buying jewelry keep in mind the person you are buying for. If the jewelry is for yourself then think about whether you want to try something new or if you are looking for a classic piece that is easy to match with just about everything.
For the first few purchases of jewelry with diamonds this is an easy way to go. Also if you are buying jewelry for someone who may not regularly wear jewelry or if they are just starting to get into luxury accessories. A tennis chain jewelry piece is a great starter. It goes well with everything and is and easy piece to rock day in and day out. No matter who you are or what you are up to. The classic string of diamonds can be stacked up for a modern and bold style. Or worn on its own paired with other classic jewelry or watches too. They transition super well from day time to evening wear and for all occasions. It is like a suit or a black dress. You can dress it up or down no matter what the occasion calls for. So let’s look at jewelry with diamonds.
Jewelry with diamonds
All of the jewelry pieces featured here are currently for sale at Raymond Lee Jewelers. If you are interested in viewing or purchasing any of the pieces below just let us know. You can reach us by phone at (561) 750 – 7808 or by email at in**@di******************.com.
First up we have this gorgeous 18 carat white gold round brilliant diamond eternity band. These types of eternity or infinity bands as they are also known are super popular at the moment. Originally worn and known as anniversary bands they are now worn in stacks. They can also be worn on their own but the trend is one that is not going away. The slim or chunky bands depending on the carat weight of the diamonds in the setting, can be worn in monochromatic matching precious metals or mixing it up with different colors. We featured another precious metal color below and you can see how yellow and rose gold can pair together beautifully for texture. This band was retailing for
$8,065.00 and is now currently on sale for $6,495.00.
Similarly to the band above this band features a larger diamond carat weight. Upping it to 3.37 carats. In 18 carat rose gold this eternity band was
$8,369.00 and is now going for $6,695.00.
Finally in the series of eternity bands we have a different diamond cut. Rather than round cut diamonds this ring features emerald cut diamonds set right alongside one another. From
$18,900.00 this band is now retailing for $14,000.00. With an incredible 5.48 carats of diamonds this ring is like the hall of mirrors in Versailles.
Finally the tennis bracelet that we have been talking about! These classics can be stacked and paired for gorgeous looks. If you want your wrist iced out these types of tennis chain jewelry is the way to go, that we can guarantee. Easy to rock with watches or just accent your wrist with a single special diamond string these continue to be the diamond sweethearts of the fine jewelry world.
This particular tennis chain bracelet is in 14 carat gold and features 6.09 carats of diamonds. It is retailing for $12,760.00 and has smooth sides with a band like setting. There are many other diamond bracelets like it in our collection in a range of carat weights and diamond cuts. As well as different precious metals including yellow, rose and white gold as well as platinum.
Men’s tennis bracelet
The men’s tennis bracelet is just like the tennis bracelet above. Albeit we have got some with larger carat weights that would suit thicker wrists. However for a stunning and textured look the real idea behind an iced out style is to stack up a couple of different diamond men’s tennis bracelet pairs. A single string of diamonds is also a refined and elegant look if that is what the occasion calls for. Again these versatile jewelry pieces are perfect for changing things up when you want to. Particularly if you are pairing it with your favorite luxury watch like a Rolex.
This gorgeous 18 carat white gold tennis bracelet was retailing for
$4,985.00 and is now going for just $3,398.00. At 12.9 grams it can be paired with a couple of others as we have said for an iced out look no worries at how much your wrist will weigh. Further we also have other matching tennis chain diamond necklaces to complete the look. Whether you want to rock them all at once or one by one that is up to you.
