Today is the 23rd of July and so marks the 20th anniversary of QVC’s exclusive simulated diamond range, Diamonique. So were talking incredible pieces that are covered in silver or gold & topped off with a stone or two that look and feel exactly like diamonds but don’t include that scarily expensive price tag!
Last week they held a dinner to celebrate and introduce us to the anniversary collection, I’ve been wearing Diamonique for a few years now, so I thought I’d share a little story with you..
It was one faithful autumns evening when I received my first Diamonique piece, it was actually quite similar to the Epiphany Emerald ring from the Anniversary collection, but believe it or not, even more delicate & sophisticated, I literally never took this ring off. It became a part of me; everyone who saw it, thought I had spent crazy amounts on the piece of sparkly goodness. Occasionally I set them straight, other times I just rolled with it. ANYWAY, one day I remember doing the dishes and then doing an autumn clean out, then looking down and realising “my precious” was missing! After I got all of the ‘gollum’ impressions out of my system, I thought about it and was quite sad at the fact that my ring was officially lost. After a few weeks of looking, it still didn’t turn up and so that was the end of the ring..or was it?
You see, I loved that ring but the price wasn’t exactly scary; at £32 I quite simply bought myself another and that’s the end of the story. Yup.
Cool story, huh? The point is they do incredibly cool and chic pieces for such low prices, it might just blow your mind. I have no idea how they make them but in all my years of wearing them my jewellery is yet to change colour. It’s pretty crazy!
So, let’s grab a drink, mine a ginger ale, and raise a toast your next and super exciting purchase from the ever cool and sparkly Diamonique collection AND of course to Diamonique, as it’s their 20th anniversary! *chin chin*
