Forget saving them for special occasions only, Cartier show you how to incorporate diamonds into your daily wear - without looking OTT

Unless you're Elizabeth Taylor (and in possession of a hefty 69.42-carat number), you need not fear wearing diamonds in the daytime. With a little help from luxe French jeweller Cartier and social influencer Carmen Hamilton (of The Chronicles of Her fame), we show you how to confidentially wear diamonds mixed back with denim, bold colours and texture.

Featuring pieces from Cartier's various beautiful collections (such as Love, Juste Un Clou, Panthère, Amulette, and Links and Chains), think of this as a lesson in how to do diamonds with chic simplicity. After all, as Jacqueline Karachi-Langane, Cartier's Creative Director of High Jewellery says, diamonds "are to jewellery what the little black dress is to the wardrobe. Playful [and] graphic, they adapt to every moment in life." We couldn't agree more.
