“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”
― John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America
As the weather turns and memories of summer dresses and flip-flops begin to fade, we find ourselves reaching into top cupboards for our winter fashion classics with a pinch of disappointment that we are about to hide the flesh we have so brazenly flaunted through summer. “Into the dark months we go,” we tell ourselves – but it isn’t all bad. This is the season of gorgeous well fitted-coats, fine cashmere scarves, elegant soft gloves and all manner of fashionable headgear from beanies to faux fur ushankas. Accessories become all the more important to inject that colour and razzmatazz into an otherwise cold, wintry day or evening. Sadly, necklaces and rings won’t do the trick when scarves and gloves become necessities. At Tru Diamonds™ though, we turn to earrings for that all-important dash of glamour.
For those with short hair, a sleek, tied-back look and/or no winter headgear, diamond drop earrings can be worn with smart casual wear for work, weekends or evening soirees, like cocktail parties. Sophisticated, but not overly formal, they’ll draw the right kind of positive attention and admiration. The Drop of Elegance Earrings, Reflections Earrings and Classic Bel-Aire Earrings feature Tru Diamonds™ white gems in unique, modern 18ct gold or platinum clad settings.
The loose, longer haired and the hat loving among us are advised to choose studs instead for that peek-a-boo flash of urbanity without the risk of entanglement. The Sparkling Pearl Earrings are the classic and a warm choice”, as Audrey Hepburn always claimed, while the 2 ct. T.W. Stud Earrings are a staple for all jewellery boxes and perfect to wear every day.
While Marilyn believes diamonds are a girl’s best friend, the singer Joss Stone asks, “Who says soul has only one colour”. The best part is that you don’t have to choose a side; decide how you feel from day to day, and compliment your mood and fashion with a colourful jewel of your choosing. The Tru Diamonds™ Tear Drop Earrings are a great choice as they come in Tru Ruby, Tru Sapphire and Tru Emerald shades.
According to scientific studies, women’s faces are ‘windows to the soul’, offering valuable insights to the person within in a way that rarely happens with men. Whether you believe this to be true or not, earrings will most definitely draw attention up and inward, so take advantage to dress up your lovely visage during the colder months.
“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass
