Stunning Diamond Necklace Trends

A diamond necklace can be the perfect way to complete an outfit. It adds a hint of glamour, sophistication and sensuality. It is the sort of accessory that can make you look and feel like a million dollars. A plain black dress can instantly become red carpet worthy with a diamond necklace providing the finishing touch. But, what style of diamond necklace should you opt for? Let’s take a look at some of the hottest trends…

Short and simplistic

Let’s begin with a trend that has been running riot over the past few months. Short necklaces that lie on the collarbone are extremely popular, such as those at Opals Australia. Simplistic is the route to go down when going for the diamond option. You could opt for a thick necklace that is completely encrusted in diamonds. Not only will this have the wow factor but it will be extremely versatile as well. In fact, one of the best things about this trend is the fact that it suits all women. If you wanted to go for something more unique you could always bring some colour into the mix by using diamonds and gemstones together.

Long pendant necklaces

In direct contrast to the former trend, long pendant necklaces are also extremely popular. If you really want to know how to rock this trend, you should opt for a thin long chain with a standout pendant on the end. This is where your diamonds will come into play. You can opt for one big diamond – teardrop shapes tend to be popular in this sense. Otherwise, you can opt for a metal shape, such as a heart, that is encrusted with lots of little diamonds. It all depends on your own personal taste.

Bib necklaces

Bib necklaces hit the catwalks several years ago and they have made a comeback already. This is a great trend for those who consider themselves to be cool and trendy. The bib necklace has a quirky vibe however it is surprisingly easy to wear. They work particularly well under collared shirts and there are a wealth of unique designs available when going down this route. There is no right or wrong; be as unusual as you like. In fact, this is why a lot of people opt for custom jewellery when going for this trend. You can have the bib necklace designed and created in order to completely suit your taste.

Before concluding it is important to determine how to match your necklace to the neckline of your dress. You don’t want the necklace and the neckline to be in competition with one and other. If you are wearing a V neck dress the necklace should fall above the neckline. A necklace that follows the contour of the neckline is ideal in relation to round necklines. Bold chunky necklaces work well for polo tops whilst long necklaces are perfect for those dresses with a boat neck. Square necklines lend themselves well to short necklaces as do strapless dresses. Therefore, it is worth bearing this in mind if you want to show off your new stunning necklace in style.

Mil Palmeras

Happy Thursday guys, hope you're all well. I'm just popping on here to show you a few pictures I snapped quickly today while we were at Mil Palmeras Beach. We popped to Mercadona this morning, well more lunchtime(ish) as we are sleeping in so much lately, but that's for another day. So, we picked up a few bits for the weekend and grabbed one of their sushi boxes for our lunch on the go. fyi , the best supermarket sushi I've had! After our trip to Mercadona we headed for Leroy Merlin in La Zenia as we needed to get some more bags of sand and some gravel too for our little diy garden project. I say little, but it's turning into quite the construction! Keep an eye on my  insta stories   over the weekend for updates. En-route to Leroy's we stopped off at Mil Palmeras to eat our sushi by the sea. Mil Palmeras has always been one of our favourite places here on the Costa Blanca South. Actually it was one of the first places we went to after the lockdown last year.  To

Blogging tips ~ Basic/Beginner

~ Disclaimer - this post is just a light hearted look at the very basic blogging tips. I do not have high DA or high stats, but I thought some of the things I have picked up over years may be helpful. Even if just one person takes one thing I've shared as useful info, then this post is worthwhile. This post also contains affiliate links ~ I'm laughing at myself a little bit writing this post as I want to be very clear that I'm not an award winning blogger, I don't have a high da score and I don't really have many page views at the moment. You're probably wondering to yourself why am I even writing this post if I'm not a far flung award winning blogger? Well, this is it. I call myself a blogger, because well I have a blog and I document stuff. I've had my blog for over eight years now and even though I haven't had a breakthrough (yet) I have picked up a couple of things along the way. I have also been asked before by friends about starting a blog, so

How to do your cars ITV/MOT in Spain

  ~ Disclaimer - this post is not associated with any ITV centres in Spain or anything that they maybe connected with them. I am also not a car mechanic of any sorts and I would always advise to seek professional advice. This post is simply sharing my experience of an ITV ~ It's that time when Marks car is due it's ITV, which is similar to the UK's MOT. In Spain your car has it's first ITV check when it's 4 years old. Then every 2 years up until the car is 10, then it's checked every year. When living in another country and not really knowing the lingo, these type of things can seem a little daunting at times and it may feel easier to just throw money at things to get someone to do it for you.  Which I think happens a lot when it comes to getting your cars ITV. A lot of garages offer a service where they will do a pre-itv check and then take your car to the test centre and do it for you. Sounds great doesn't it. Which it is don't get me wrong at all, it&
