Every day is the perfect day to shine. Our philosophy at Diamond Nexus is that you don’t need to wait for a special occasion to wear your favorite jewelry, and that Contemporary Nexus Diamonds are beautiful every day—whether it’s an ordinary or an extraordinary one.

We all live busy lives, so here’s a quick guide to looking glam while on the go.

At the Gym

Depending on the kind of workout you like to do, you may not want to wear any jewelry at all—swimming, for example, exposes your jewelry to harsh chemicals that can damage them over time. But when going for a jog, doing some yoga or kicking butt in a kickboxing class, a little extra sparkle never hurt anyone. In fact, we think that feeling a little glam makes going to the gym a little easier!

Guideline: Keep it simple.

Studs won’t interfere with your workout in any way, and they’re out of the way of equipment. They’re a perfect go-to for everyday wear, even at the gym.

If you’re engaged or married, it’s possible to wear your ring at the gym, especially if it is a sturdier design. More delicate rings or designs with lots of accent stones are best left at home to avoid undue wear or accidental damage, particularly when you’re doing a more hands-on workout.

Running Errands

Grocery shopping, getting your car’s oil changed, or picking up a few things for around the house—you can look glam while doing even the most humdrum tasks.

Guideline: Let your personal style shine.

Dressing up your casual day-to-day style is easy. Slip on a favorite band or three—stack them up for a trendy look. Simple earrings and a pendant or longer chain necklace are staples for anyone’s closet that go with anything from a breezy sundress to your favorite jeans.

At Work

Your work wardrobe all depends on your office and dress code. But whether you work in a laid-back, casual company or are required to wear business professional styles, adding Contemporary Nexus Diamonds to your wardrobe is always tasteful and appropriate.

Guideline: Choose a few favorites.

The key is not to go too overboard with your accessories at work, but doing them right is a great way to add your own flair to your work wardrobe. Several layered bracelets look polished yet updated, and simple earrings always make an outfit look complete. You can also easily wear a pendant or necklace, which look particularly sleek when paired with a good blazer.

Night Out

Everyone likes to feel glammed up for a night out, whether you’re going on a date or out with friends. And it’s the perfect time to sparkle. Stack up your rings, layer your bracelets, and go for drama with your earrings. Getting dressed up for a night out is also a great time to play with colored stones—canary and rose for spring and summer, and rubies, emeralds and sapphires for fall and winter.
