First reserved exclusively for royalty and the uber rich, diamonds were only worn by those deemed as being worthy. Not only did you need to have a lot of disposable cash laying around to afford diamonds, you also had to have some inside connections. Today, wearing diamond jewelry is as much of a fashion statement as it is a declaration of status. The rich and famous still adorn themselves in diamonds and other precious gemstones, but everyday people are also able to get in on the action. You don’t have to be a millionaire in order to shop at www.ascotdiamonds.com, but you could easily drop a cool million on the exciting collection of jewelry this company has on offer.
There are many reasons why diamond jewelry is never going to go out of fashion, and it starts with the prestige that wearing diamond jewelry brings. Real diamonds shine, glitter and reflect light in a way that is all but impossible not to notice. Even if you don’t actively look at the jewelry people wear on a regular basis, you’re bound to notice when someone has on a dazzling pair of real diamond earrings or an especially large rock on their ring finger. Simply put, when someone wears diamonds, their status is just naturally elevated. And that is something that will never go out of style.
While you might have to wait until you have some extra money in order to buy a new piece of diamond jewelry, there’s a good reason to splurge on yourself every so often. There’s nothing wrong with costume jewelry and inexpensive gemstones, but don’t expect it to last too long. Diamond jewelry lasts literally forever, and if you take exceptional care of it, you’ll find that it increases in value while still looking amazing even after wearing it for years. So while quality diamond jewelry will definitely set you back financially, it’s actually a very smart investment. The next time that you splurge on a diamond bracelet, realize that you’re going to wear it a lot longer than you would a set of plastic bangles.
If you pay attention to fashion, you will notice that designers put just as much effort into selecting chic accessories as they do on each clothing collection. Some years, you’ll notice that certain colors and style trends are more popular than others, but there is one thing that always remains in style. If you guessed diamond jewelry, you are 100 percent correct. Diamond jewels aren’t always noticeable right away when they’re used in the fashion world. In some instances, designers like to include diamond jewels in their fashion looks almost like Easter eggs; if you really are paying attention and studying each model, you will eventually find the hidden clues.
Diamond jewelry is classically elegant, and even vintage pieces remain in fashion forever. Feel free to wear any diamond jewelry inherited from your relatives as they likely intended for their descendants to enjoy the fruits of their labor long after they were gone. The new time that you go to buy some trendy diamond jewelry, imagine how cool it would look on generations to come.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
