We’re making our lists and checking them twice. Moms, sisters, wives and girlfriends of Diamond Nexus employees tend to get packages of sparkle wrapped up under the tree. This year, DN staff are sharing their favorite pieces, and what they’re gifting this year (shh…don’t tell!).






Jackie
 

Jackie: Project Management

East-West Classic Emerald: “This is my engagement ring! I love the classics with a modern twist. The Emerald cut is so elegant, and the East-West setting modernizes the traditional solitaire.”

 
 

Asscher Prong Set Studs: “Asscher studs are my go-to earrings for everyday wear. I like how the unique cut makes them a little different than typical studs.”

 

Gardenia Earrings: “These are definitely on my list this year! I love to play up basic clothing pieces with sparkling earrings, and these are perfect. I love how the Marquise accents wrap around the Asscher center and up the ear. Our designers did an amazing job!”

 

Radiant Grace Petite: “I like to wear at least one eternity band every day, and I prefer them to be dainty. The half-bezels make this one super comfortable for daily wear, and it looks good stacked with almost any other ring.”





 

Lauren: Social Media

Emerald Cut Basket Set Studs: “These are my everyday go-to earrings because they are practical and simple yet sophisticated. They go with anything.”


Quest Nesting Band: “I love that this band can be worn as a unique stand alone or can be stacked with other bands and styles. It defies the traditional look of bands, which is what I love most about it.”


Always Bound Bracelet: “When I want to make a statement, I wear my Always Bound bracelet. It is flashy, glitzy and polishes off any formal outfit.”


Marseille Round Cut Necklace: “Low profile and comfort are so important to me when choosing jewelry I will wear every single day. The Marseille Round is a traditional cut yet modern and comfortable, which is perfect for my active lifestyle.”


Ara Earrings: “I cannot get over these studs! I love the cluster of stones together and think these earrings are perfect for any special occasion. I would wear these as a wedding guest, for a holiday party or for my birthday.”





Andria
 

Andria: Product Development

Queen Wedding Band: “Not only is this one of my favorite pieces, but it was one of my favorites to design! The alternating Round and Marquise stones have a really feminine effect, while the bezel settings are very clean-cut and almost masculine. The result is a band I like to wear in a stack.”

 
 

Tulip Solitaire: “Our newest solitaire is so pretty. The floral undertones from the petal-like prongs soften the look and make it so pretty, and little unique for a simple solitaire.”

 

Elara Ring: “I love this ring so much. The cluster is so fun and yet it feels balanced. I wear it as a right hand ring, but I really like that people are choosing it for an engagement ring as well.”

 

3.72 carat Tennis Bracelet: “I wear this dainty tennis bracelet when I want to feel a little posh for the day. Sometimes that’s at work, sometimes at an event, and sometimes just on a random weekend!”


Iris Earrings: “I love the Iris earrings because they’re different than any other earrings we have, with that 1920s vibe. They’re so interesting to look at, and they make me feel really put together when I put them on.”





Lisa
 

LISA: MARKETING

Verona Oval Engagement Ring: “I picked this for my own engagement ring and I'm pretty much obsessed with it! I love the classic style with a little something to make it different and fitting for me.”


Asteria Earrings: “These earrings are so versatile. They make me feel polished wherever I go. I love that I can wear them to work or to a wedding.”


Infinite Grace Petite: “I love this eternity band in rose gold. It makes the stones pop and makes me feel trendy while I’m wearing it. I like to wear it alone, to let the detailed design shine without competing for attention in a stack.”


Dione Earrings: “I love these for when I want a little something more than studs. They’re just as comfortable as studs, but have that extra special feeling like drops.”





Jennessa
 

JENNESSA: FULFILLMENT

Dubai Engagement Ring: “What I love about this ring is that it demands attention. The double halo is blingy and it screams ‘look at me!’ It’s so pretty.”

 
 

Veronique Earrings: “I’m so happy that hoops are trending right now! The Veronique earrings are my go-to pick because they’re versatile enough to wear with a sweater and jeans, or dress up for a special occasion.”

 

East-West Marquise Necklace: “I love this necklace in a big carat weight—1.62 carats or bigger. It’s simple enough to wear every day but the bigger stone size makes it bolder. Plus the Marquise is so sparkly!”

 

True Treasure Eternity Band: “I like unique stone shapes and so this eternity band made of Ovals calls to me. I wear it for special occasions, and putting it on always makes my outfit feel extra fancy.”


Summer Breeze Bracelet: “This bracelet is at the top of my wish list! I love the halos and how big and bold it is. So gorgeous!”
