We’re talking about diamonds, gold, silver—anything that reflects the light with that brilliant shine. And while there’s plenty of bling to go around, there are a few standouts that are must-haves for your collection and your checkout cart.
Let’s take a look at our top five picks for the most pristine pieces of bling that you shouldn’t leave home without.
When you think of a chain necklace, there’s a good chance your mind immediately goes to the Cuban link. These are classic designs that feel both contemporary and modern at the same time, which allows them to work in pretty much every time.
What we love about this 12mm Cuban chain in White Gold is that it’s not too wide, and it’s not too slim. It falls right into a perfect size that won’t steal the show but also won’t go unnoticed.
Not to mention, the white gold color feels like platinum, making it appear clean and polished when worn properly. And that white gold hue is the perfect backdrop for hundreds of high-clarity stones that will reflect the light in an unthinkable way that is billboard hot.
This is a great piece for people who tend to wear more solid-colored shirts, as the white gold will stand out more prominently against solid backdrops. While it’s a bit too thick to hold onto a pendant, this chain can compliment diamond earrings or bracelets perfectly.
Tennis bracelets have an interesting history that dates all the way back to 1987 when world-famous tennis player Chris Evert broke her bracelet during a match. She had the game paused so that she’d be able to pick up all of the gems and diamonds strewed about the court. And ever since then, these iconic bracelets have led to the popularization of the term"tennis bracelet."
With that said, modern tennis bracelets are built to be much more durable, though; they haven’t lost their style. This clustered tennis bracelet in white gold is a perfect example of how a piece that became popular in the 80s can withstand the test of time to look just as amazing today.
Tennis chains are unique from many other designs because they don’t really have traditional links. Instead, the piece is composed of tons of huge, connected gemstones that reflect the light more than traditional chains with smaller stones.
This is a bold piece that feels clean and polished. It’d pair perfectly with the diamond prong Cuban chain, but it’d also look great on its own. It's a look worthy of an album cover or a movie poster.
This piece is great for casual nights out to dinner or bar-hopping from New Orleans to New York. They also make for a great gift because they’re neutral and versatile.
Rings are one of those jewelry items that often go overlooked. But don’t underestimate the power of a well-placed diamond ring on your hands.
This clustered band ring in 18k gold is the perfect ring for people who want to stand out. The giant stone in the center acts as a focal point while the small studs on the outside help to draw your attention inward. Couple that with the traditional appearance of 18k gold, and you’ve got yourself a stunning piece that might make even the most famous people in rap and hip-hop culture jealous.
The most important thing to remember about wearing rings is that you’ll want them to pair well with other pieces. This means making sure that you’re wearing classic 18k gold around your neck or on your ears, in addition to sporting this ring on your fingers.
Rings are also a great place to start if you’re new to wearing jewelry because they’re small enough and easy to pull off. But don’t be fooled: there are plenty of things to keep in mind when it comes to finding your perfect fit.
Anyone can throw on a chain or a ring and call it a day, but it takes some serious commitment to your own style to get your ears so that you can deck out your lobes with some pristine bling.
The princess cut clustered earrings are an enhancement to the classic stud that can help to bring you some attention from the moment you step outside. Despite the name, princess cut diamonds are fit for kings and queens, too, as their geometric shape is both bold and nuanced all at once.
Where most studs only have one single diamond on the surface, this clustered piece incorporates multiple smaller gems surrounding one giant stone to make for a more reflective and mirror-like finish.
These are great pieces for a night out at the club, as they’ll reflect those laser lights so perfectly you'll look like an ad. With that said, you can definitely pull these off at a more casual event all the same.
When you wear a piece of jewelry, it can give you confidence and control that is unmatched. It can really make it feel like the entire world is in the palm of your hand, whether you sprint down the street or go out in your new ride. While we haven’t found a way to do that yet, we can let you wear the world around your neck.
The World Is Yours pendant isn’t just loaded with tons of bling on one surface. In fact, it’s covered with 360 degrees worth of dazzling diamonds and gold plating so you can get noticed from any and all angles. And since you can choose between both 18k and white gold, there’s no outfit on the globe that wouldn’t work with it.
This 3D pendant is the definition of unique, and it’d pair perfectly with any thinner franco, Cuban, or rope chain. It’s a piece that does all of the talking for you. The World Is Yours pendant is a bold piece that is most suitable for those who are looking to make a statement.
