D-Flawless Design

As the writer of a book called "A Girl's Guide to Buying Diamonds" I'm always on the lookout for fun home accessories that reflect my industry. Obviously, I couldn't help but point you to these new items from decor retailer Chiasso. Above, we have mini glass diamonds placed into a vase for a dramatic flower arrangement. The website also suggests scattering them around the table at your next dinner party.

Above, Chiasso's glass "diamond sculptures", that would be perfect as a paperweight or just as a decorative accessory. Made of faceted glass, measuring 4.75" and only $28, this would be a great hostess gift. 

If you'd rather wear your diamonds, how about a pair of simple drops that will never go out of style? Here are my shopping suggestions:

Ron Hami Diamond X Drop Earrings. The matchstick shape and contemporary lines are classic. 

Pave Diamond Teardrop Earrings. Simple and understated, but with just the right amount of sparkle. 

Charles Krypell Baguette Diamond Loop Earrings. I love the retro feel of these beauties–they signal a time when women really got dressed up to go out.
