We have chosen some of our favourite in-our-wildest-dreams diamonds to inspire you this Christmas.
If you thought that the combination of white gold or platinum with diamonds is nothing new, here are some new ways to wear them. From Garrard's Wing Cuff to Boucheron's delicate Cypris swan earrings, diamonds are keeping up with the times.
Even though Solange Azagury-Partridge calls her impressive diamond necklace 'Old Fashioned', there is a modern, airy feel to it. Likewise Harry Winston's Diamond Link earrings. With 72 round brilliant diamonds, they have a contemporary minimalism about them.
So if you are planning on pushing the boat out this Christmas and treating someone to diamonds, think beyond the obvious and choose something that shows flair and style. It's hard to go wrong with diamonds, so put a little bit of thought into your present and make it extra special.
