Champagne Diamonds Poised for a Major Comeback

July 31st, 2014 by Noam Flint

As you look to transition your attire from summer into fall, you’re likely searching for new accessories that can complement your wardrobe as well as speak to the change of seasons.

There’s one stone that could be the perfect solution: champagne diamonds. Style expert Michael O’Connor told NewsUSA that he predicts these stones, which primarily come from Rio Tinto’s Argyle Mine in Australia, will continue to surge in popularity as the summer draws to a close.

“What we are seeing from the latest 2014 fall fashion trends is a match fit perfectly for champagne diamonds,” he told the source. “The light champagne to rich cognac natural shades are neutral, making them a perfect combination for all the neutrals that we’re seeing in fashion as well as all of the rich brighter gemstone colors, popular at holiday time.”

One of the key advantages of these gems is that while they boast the rarity and beauty of fancy colored diamonds, they don’t come with as hefty a pricetag. In fact, their cost can be far more affordable than diamonds in other hues, such as blue or pink. Better yet, their elegant yet earthy tone is ultra versatile.

O’Connor noted that champagne diamonds go with warm autumn hues, such as orange, cranberry, honey mustard and crimson, but also work with subtler hues like camel, cocoa, ivory and charcoal. Even dusty rose, lavender and other pastels look stunning with champagne diamonds. Additionally, they can just as easily dress up denim as they can add intrigue to a satin gown.

A-list actress and tastemaker Sarah Jessica Parker’s first foray into the jewelry realm offers further proof that diamonds in this hue are bound to make a splash on the jewelry scene. NTD.TV reported that Parker collaborated with famous fine jewelry designer Cindy Chao to create a one-of-a-kind titanium and 18K gold brooch, which contains brown diamonds along with conch pearls. It will certainly draw a lot of attention when it goes up for bidding at a Sothebys’s Hong Kong auction this October.
