April's birthstone is the diamond. Whenever I hear the word diamond, I automatically think of these iconic women. Marilyn Monroe sang about them. Elizabeth Taylor named her iconic perfume after them. Audrey Hepburn donned an exquisite set while filming the movie Roman Holiday, Breakfast at Tiffany's and many more. I like diamonds and my avid readers know I'm a huge fan of pearls. When it comes to diamonds, I like small diamond earrings and dainty diamond tennis bracelets. What about you? Are you a diamond-ista?

My engagement ring looks like the one you have here. It's a classic. Yes, I think of these women too when I think of diamonds.

Anya Jensen said...

I love diamonds - I have 3 vintage rings with loads of them on - I'd adore some studs and a tennis bracelet one day perhaps (hope the MR. is reading this:))
Have a great day my friend,

Carole Poirot said...

Oh yes, of course I love diamonds! I tend to keep it very simple though and anything à la Taylor wouldn't be very moi ;-) xo

fluff and fripperies said...

I think a love for diamonds is just ingrained in us from an early age! I'm no different but apart from my engagement/wedding rings and a pair of studs I don't actually own any. Would love a tennis bracelet!


I wouldn't say I looove diamonds, but if I did wear jewelry with some crystal-y bit -- usually earrings -- then I would want them to be diamonds, and not say, rhinestones haha.. I do tend to prefer other stones though, especially for my rings -- tourmaline, turquoise, sapphires... :)

Cee said...

There is something so classic about diamonds... and yet, I've never really been a diamond girl. I love gemstones; I think, because I wear a lot of neutrals, gemstones add just that little pop of colour that my outfits need. Although I would never say no to a diamond ;)

Flora Fascinata said...

Agree with Cee about the coloured stones, too. A colleague recently got engaged with a purple sapphire and diamond ring. Stunning. Do love diamonds. Only have Engagement and Wedding band....and can't see anymore coming anytime soon. ;). Funny story when we got robbed once, or broken in to. Thieves took all bits of costume jewellery but left my small 21st gift strand of pearls thrown on the bed. Must have thought they were rubbish! So relieved!


Haha love the title... of course, I am a diamond-ista...Diamonds are a girls best friends...almost like shoes!!!
Thank you for your lovely comments!

Nico Saich said...

I love herkimer diamonds because they aren't as expensive but sadly I don't own any yet!



Laia herrero said...

Well I will have to win the lottery first to be a diamond-ista but yeah of course I love them, I'm a girl after all! :P
The thing is, I don't have such events as those beautiful womans above so...i wouldn't look the same.
kisses Kim, I hope your week gets so much better!

Mica said...

hehe I would love more diamonds! I have an engagement ring and wedding ring with diamonds so I should be happy I guess :) A pair of earrings wouldn't be turned down though...... :P

Diamonds are indeed elegant! Like you, I am drawn to the daintier diamond jewelry items (stud earrings, a simple pendant, tennis bracelets). Love the imagery this post provides! A good reminder to pull out the diamonds and wear them more often. :)

Sam said...

Hiya babe... thanks for sharing your fashion opinion with me. These diamond tiaras are so beautiful, If only we could be a princess or Hollywood star to wear such glittering radiance.

livlovelaugh said...

Gorgeous gals, gorgeous jewels! :)

Champagne Star said...

Diamonds are very pretty and great for a sophisticated, regal look, but in general I'm actually not a big fan of wearing them. To me, they seem a little over done. I prefer pearls over diamonds because I feel that they can achieve the same look in a more subtle way.

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Yes please to diamonds!

Oh to Be a Muse said...

I think of those same women as well, especially Marilyn. I'm not into pearls, but diamonds are nice. My ears aren't pierced so I like them on rings and bracelets.

Sara Gerard said...

Cute post Kim! But now you are making me pine for a "sick day" where I can sit in bed Marathoning movies with these ladies in them!

MaysaAndSunshine said...

No wonder why i love diamond so much Kim. I am an April birthday girl. That explains a mystery! Now i need money to go shopping...ha.

Thank your for your kind comment as always Kim abd no i am way too lazy to finish a Scrapbook project. I just keep her photos sort by month, a lot if work already.

nancy @ adore to adorn said...

Diamonds are a beautiful gem. I know some have their opinions on it and there are some "blood diamonds" out there, but as a general I love 'em. My wedding and engagement rings are dainty and I love how delicate they are. They are just so pretty! haha...sorry to make this answer so long!

Haylee Mae said...

Haha i can't deny that I love diamonds, I have a weakness for anything that sparkles ;P

They're one of my favorite stones for sure.
