Diamonds are truly a fashionista's bestie right now: they add just the right touch of grownup glamour - a la Mad Men - that feels so on-trend right now; plus, grownup girls rock real rocks, so ditch the paste and start filling your jewelry box with the real deal. "Everyday" diamonds needn't be fussy, like this fabu statement/cocktail ring from Povada: an eyecatching swirl of black diamonds set against a glittery field of petite pave white-diamonds in handcrafted 14k white gold. We would definitely wear this while cocktailing, after drinks, before during and after dining, after hours, and, of course, first thing upon arising.
The team at Povada designs, creates and handcrafts all of their pieces - which means the prices have way fewer of those middleman-type markeups. They are also a top-rated eBay seller, and willing to back up your purchase with a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee - and ship it to you for free if it's over $200.
If the ring is still a bit of a stretch budgetwise, why not chill out on the fancy iced-coffee bevvies for a while and take advantage of their layaway plan....so you'll end up with an ice-y splurge that will pay you back in huge (and shiny) style dividends!
