Are you looking for an understated yet eye-catching piece? A round cut, single row diamond tennis bracelet could be the perfect fit for you. Equally, an emerald cut diamond bracelet epitomises sophistication and luxury.

Type of metal

As with style and shape, the type of metal you choose for your diamond bracelet is down to your own personal taste. At Shining Diamonds you can choose from: white goldyellow goldrose gold and platinum.

All of these metals are gorgeous, long-term investments. However, there are a few things to consider when making your decision. If you decide on a yellow gold diamond bracelet, it doesn’t matter if a few of your stones have a yellow tint – they will effortlessly blend in with the yellow gold. On the other hand, with a white gold or platinum diamond bracelet, you’ll want to make sure you opt for colourless diamonds so they don’t stand out against the metal.

The Four C’s

The ‘Four C’s’ – the phrase on every jeweller’s lips! The ‘Four C’s’ of diamond buying stand for: cutcaratcolour and clarity. Your chosen jeweller will be able to discuss the following topics with you in great detail, but it’s worthwhile familiarising yourself with them beforehand – ensuring that your diamond bracelet is the perfect choice for you. Our diamond buying guide provides you with everything you need to know.


Perhaps the ‘Four C’s’ should be aptly renamed the Five C’s, as cost is often the most important consideration when choosing the perfect piece of jewellery. Decide on the style, shape and metal you want for your diamond bracelet – and then decide on your price range from there.

It’s useful to remember the age-old saying ‘if something seems too good to be true – it probably is’. Real diamonds should not have any scratches because they are the hardest known mineral, so keep an eye out for fake diamonds! Learn more about how to tell if a diamond is real from our guide.
