Champagne Diamonds Pop as a Fashion Accessory This Fall

DiamondFashionCLooking for the perfect fashion accessories to go with your new fall wardrobe? The answer may be as simple as adding the color of champagne diamonds from Rio Tinto’s Argyle Mine in Australia.

“What we are seeing from the latest 2014 fall fashion trends is a match fit perfectly for champagne diamonds,” says jewelry and style expert Michael O’Connor. “The light champagne to rich cognac natural ashes 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.”

Since champagne diamonds’ color is considered natural, they are classified as a “fancy colored” diamond. And yet, this categorization is a misnomer, considering its rarity. Think about this: for every 10,000 white diamonds, there is only one natural-colored diamond. Despite its rarity, however, the champagne diamond remains at a price point that makes it attainable for nearly anyone.

So, which colors do stylists suggest you couple with Argyle champagne diamonds this season?

•    Jewel tones. Metallic fabrics in shades ranging from cranberry and hot pink to deep emerald, teal, orchid, honey mustard, wine and crimson fit into this category.

•    Bright tones. Orange, tangerine, cherry, fuchsia, caution yellow, lime and cobalt are in demand this fall, making a champagne diamond the perfect accessory.

•    Neutral tones. Fitting perfectly with the champagne diamond color scheme, tones like loden, pea green, camel, cocoa, toffee, ivory, dove grey, grey, charcoal and ink were highlighted in the 2014 spring shows as fall and winter essentials.

•    Soft tones. If you eschew deep or bright colors, and pastels are more to your liking, carnation, dusty rose, nude, peachy nude, ice blue, lilac and lavender will still make your diamond “pop.”

No matter what colors you decide to usher in the cooler season, Argyle champagne diamonds are a fashion-forward must-have that goes with any style, including rocker chic, athletic wear, casual elegance or a red carpet fete.

“The good news for those looking to maximize their fashion purchases is that champagne diamonds go with nearly any clothing category,” says O’Connor. “The warm, neutral tones of champagne diamonds easily lend themselves to summer, fall and winter wear, making the transition from light-weight summer styles to winter’s layered looks effortless.”

This fall, nearly anybody can pick out their favorite outfit—whether it be silk, neoprene or denim—and feel comfortable knowing that their champagne diamond accessories will always match.
