Can I Wear Diamond Earrings Daily?

Diamond is considered the hardest gemstone on earth, with unmatched durability and sparkle. Natural diamonds are precious, rare, and expensive. A pair of diamond earrings is an expensive possession; you will never want your jewelry to lose its charm or sparkle and look dull. Like any other piece of jewelry, diamond earrings will accumulate grime and dirt if worn regularly and start appearing dull. Chemicals and ingredients from the day-to-day products you use will create a cast over the diamond stone, which will reduce its sparkle over time. Exposing your diamond earrings to chemicals and chlorinated water will harm their sparkle. If you want to retain its look and shine for several years, avoid wearing your natural diamond earrings daily.

Choose lab-grown diamond earrings for everyday wear.

Lab Grown Diamonds possess the same physical and chemical characteristics as natural diamonds, which is why they look identical to natural diamonds. One of the best attributes of lab-created diamonds is their affordability. Environmentally conscious buyers need not worry about digging a hole in their pocket while buying a pair of lab-grown diamond earrings for themselves or their loved ones. Being affordable and highly durable in nature, lab-grown diamonds are a perfect gemstone for everyday jewelry.

Lab-grown diamonds are identical to mined diamonds and sparkling gems made in laboratories. Lab Created Diamond Earrings are made highly durable so that they can withstand daily wear and tear. If you are looking for diamond earrings for everyday wear, then there can be no other better option than lab-grown diamonds, especially for people who are environmentally and socially conscious.

Nadine Dorries hits out at Sunak’s pricey suit

Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries has been criticised for hitting out at Rishi Sunak’s expensive suit after interviews resurfaced where she admitted spending thousands on jewellery and clothes.

Ms Dorries tweeted that Liz Truss, who she is supporting to be Tory leader, will be travelling the UK wearing £4.50 earrings from budget jewellery chain Claire’s Accessories while Rishi Sunak wore a Henry Herbert suit in Teesside worth £3,500 and £450 Prada shoes.

But other MPs and members of the public were unimpressed with her sniping, with Tory Guildford MP Angela Richardson tweeting: “FFS Nadine! Muted.”

Tory leadership race live updates

Cabinet Office minister Johnny Mercer said the “puerile nature” of the leadership contest was embarrassing and it was “time to raise standards”.

Members of the public said they did not care how much the candidates spent on their clothes, they just wanted good policies and have had enough with the personal mudslinging.

Interviews with Ms Dorries, who is also a novelist, quickly resurfaced, including one in The Guardian in 2007 when she admitted to owning £6,000 diamond earrings.

“I will wear cheaper clothes but there are things I will not compromise on, like my £6,000 diamond earrings,” she said.

And in another interview with the Daily Express in 2017, she described doing two big clothes shops a year where she “probably spends over £1,000”.

Asked what the most expensive item in her wardrobe was, Ms Dorries said: “Probably some of my jewellery. I don’t skimp on jewellery. I’ve designed some pieces myself at a bespoke jeweller. I saw some items in the window but I wanted them to look slightly different.”

Ms Dorries was also asked how much she spent on clothes each month.

In ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’, The Diamond Industry Isn’t Clear-Cut

In the Western world, nothing says “I love you” like diamonds. These sparkling, glistening and extremely expensive stones are the ultimate symbols of undying love and commitment.

This is most typified by the relatively recent ritual of the engagement ring, where the general rule is that the suitor should spend at least two months of their salary on the ring they present.

As well as being a commercialised token of romance, diamonds are also used as a visual shortcut to display wealth, with Hollywood A-listers, blinged-out rappers and social media wannabes all draping themselves in the envy-inducing stones.

Closer to earth, anniversaries, birthdays and other notable occasions are also often celebrated with gifts of earrings, necklaces, and bracelets encrusted with these incredibly precious, exceedingly rare and eye-wateringly costly stones.

But “diamonds are not rare, they’re ubiquitous,” says Jason Kohn. “We’ve been sold a false bill of goods.”

If anyone would know, it’s Jason. The award-winning film-maker’s new documentary, Nothing Lasts Forever, scratches away the romanticised ideal of the diamond and lays bare the mythology that the diamond industry has spent billions of dollars and decades creating. Subsequently, it’s guaranteed to completely up-end the way you view diamonds.

Firstly, because diamonds are actually as common as old rocks. Their perceived scarcity, and hence value, is a direct result of majority control and manipulation of the diamond market held by global diamond company De Beers.

Secondly, and much more devastating to the industry, diamonds can now be manufactured in factories. These synthetic diamonds are made with exactly the same chemical compounds as natural diamonds and are completely indistinguishable from those dug out of the ground.

The only differences between the two are the price, with lab-grown diamonds being massively cheaper — and the advertising-led, romantic mythology that surrounds natural diamonds, adding
