Decorating your hands has been a fashion art for centuries. Polished nails, whether glossed up with powerful color or subdued, never go out of style. Another way to enhance the looks of your hands is with diamond and jeweled jewelry. For this particular blog post, I’m going to concentrate on jeweled and chain slave bracelets, and chocolate and white diamonds. Fabulous fits for fabulous hands!
Diamonds, in addition to being a girl’s best friend, in minerology are a metastable allotrope of carbon, where the carbon atoms are arranged in a variation of the face-centered cubic crystal structure called a diamond lattice. Although the most popular diamonds area crystal clear, brown diamonds or chocolate diamonds, are growing in favor.
Diamond rings are always a fashion hit, no doubt about it!
Diamond Fun Fact: Most natural diamonds are formed at high temperatures and pressure depths of 140 to 190 kilometers (87 to 118 miles) in the Earth’s mantle. Because of the clear diamond’s extremely rigid lattice, a diamond can be contaminated by very few types of impurities, such as baron or nitrogen. Small amounts of defects or impurities color the diamond blue, yellow, green, purple, pink, orange, red or brown.
Brown Diamond Fun Fact: Brown diamonds are the most common color variety of natural diamonds. The brown color can cause reduced glimmer, however, brown or chocolate diamonds have become valued as gemstones. Chocolate is always delicious, whether edible or wearable!
The name diamond is derived from the ancient Greek adamas (proper, unalterable, unbreakable, untamed). Diamonds are thought to have been first recognized and mined in India, where significant alluvial deposits of the stone could be found many centuries ago along the rivers Penner, Krishna ad Godavari. Diamonds have been known in India for at least 3,000 years, but most likely 6,000 years.
As all jewelry lovers know, the most familiar use of diamonds today are as gemstones used for adornment. Diamonds are simply grand for decorating and dolling up the hand!
Since your hands are viewed by everyone you come in contact with (unless they are covered by a great pair of gloves), sprucing up your hands for aesthetic enhancement is as much an art as adorning your body in fantastic fashion garments.
In addition to ornamenting your hands with dazzling diamond rings, slave bracelets are a unique piece of jewelry that adds glamour and pizzazz to any hand. I adore slave bracelets, both for their beauty and for the individuality they bring to the wearer. Slave bracelets are ring/bracelet attachments, where the ring and the bracelet is one piece of jewelry, generally held together by jewels, chains or leather.
Slave bracelets are sensual, beautiful, exquisite pieces of jewelry!
Slave Bracelet Fun Fact: Slave bracelets are an Indian wrist bracelet joined by a ring and chain (Panjas). Slave bracelets are associated with several cultures and are also worn as belly dancing and harem jewelry. Slave bracelets are elegant and gorgeous on any hand!
Diamonds and jewels for hand jewelry that rules!
Whether you prefer white diamonds, chocolate diamonds, slave bracelets or all three, your hands will look picture perfect when adorned in them, as you can plainly see!
Slave Bracelet Fun Fact: Any bracelet made of chains is called a slave bracelet as slang.
Diamond Fun Fact: The formation of natural diamonds require very specific conditions – exposure of carbon-bearing materials to high pressure, ranging approximately between 45 to 60 kilobars, but at a comparatively low temperature range between approximately 1,650 and 2,370 degrees Fahrenheit.
Chocolate Diamond Fun Fact: The Golden Jubilee Diamond is currently the largest cut diamond in the world. It was found in 1985 as a rough stone of 755.5 carats in the Premier mine in South Africa, which is operated by De Beers. The Golden Jubilee Diamond was named by King Bhumibol Adulyadej and given to him on occasion of his 50th coronation anniversary.
Shimmy up your hands with jeweled splendor for the loveliest look in the land!
“I keep waiting for my diamond ring but time keeps ticking by.”
“If you wait for someone to buy you one you might wait until you die.”
“Yes. I will solve that dilemma by purchasing one for myself.”
“You know you’re certainly worth it. Don’t put yourself on the shelf.”
“Maybe I’ll buy me two diamond rings. One white and one chocolate brown.”
“Fabulous. And toss in a slave bracelet to have the best dressed hands around!”
Treat yourself all fashion divas: you certainly deserve a little luxury!
