Ask any of the employees at Diamond Nexus, and they will say that one of the best things about working here is getting to see and wear such gorgeous jewelry. With that in mind, we had our staff choose their favorite engagement rings (whether they’re single, already engaged or married!) and jewelry to wear every day. These are five looks that they love—and you will, too.
Whitney: “I have a pretty laid-back style so I gravitate toward the more understate pieces, especially the ones with bezel settings. They just have an effortless, cool and casual enough for every day.”
Engagement ring pick: Verona with a Radiant cut Nexus Diamond Alternative
Style tip: Wear a simple pendant like the Speak Softly on a long chain to complete a classic white tee.
Lisa: “My style is pretty straightforward and I tend to go for classic pieces that will be in style for years. I like jewelry that is more simple so I can choose a bigger carat weight without feeling over-the-top.”
Engagement ring pick: Simple Pleasures eternity band
Style tip: Pick very simple settings for each piece of jewelry, so you can wear more without feeling like it’s too much for a regular work day.
|Jackie: “For my daily style, I go for flowing lines and comfortable yet trendy outfits. I like my jewelry to have more detail and intricacies to complement my look.”
Engagement ring pick: French Quarter
Style tip: Pairing intricately detailed jewelry with a more relaxed look creates a really cool boho vibe.
Andria: “I like to make my professional wardrobe look fresh. I like to play with color, both with my clothes and in my jewelry, and I’m not afraid to try a new trend.”
Wedding set picks: Lorelai engagement ring with the Oasis eternity band
Favorite pieces for daily wear: Getaway earrings with sapphires, Christine pendant with box chain, and Cassie bracelet.
Style tip: Halos are in, and not just for engagement rings. Choose earrings and pendants with halos to create a rich, layered look to your jewelry.
|Brittany: “I like to keep my style as simple as possible while still looking chic and classic. My jewelry is a good way to make a bigger statement.”
Engagement ring pick: Prague
Favorite pieces for daily wear: Louvre band, Chantal earrings, Bound to You Radiant bracelet and Copacabana necklace.
Style tip: Be strategic with your sparkle; pair bigger earrings with a more subdued necklace and you’ll always look put together.
