‘Curating the world’s best face furniture’ is how the journalist Tilly Macalister-Smith describes her jewellery-focused Instagram account, @earafterear. And, having worked with brands from Tiffany to Diane von Fürstenberg, she has become an authority on a modern-day, forward-looking approach to style. So she’s perfectly placed to offer direction on how to wear diamonds now. Here, Tilly shares the pieces she’s eyeing – and how to wear them. See her edit below. Photography by Stephen Maycock.
‘Diamond rings can mark celebratory life moments and memories. So as you collect those, stack up your rings and wear them proudly as a reminder of your life achievements – a new baby, a promotion, a new house. This trend is about wearing rings that layer together well, but don’t match: mix your metals, diamond settings and cuts.’
‘Replace those classic diamond studs – too ‘lady’ – with a pair of delicate miniature hoops or drops. Give the look a little edge by layering with a diamond stud or second hoop – many professional piercers will now pierce a new hole with a delicate diamond. If layering with a diamond ear cuff, make sure it fits snugly on your lobe and won’t easily slip off.’
‘There's something delicious about a flash of diamonds slinking over a tanned wrist. While there’s nothing more indulgent than a diamond tennis bracelet, a simple single diamond on a delicate chain will start you off nicely. Bring a little light to this underrated erogenous zone.’
