As history and Hollywood have proven time and time again, sometimes Tiffany’s diamonds are the ultimate declaration of autonomy

The diamond is a paradoxical jewel. On the one hand, it’s offered as a token of devotion between lovers engaged to be married. And yet, as Shirley Bassey belted out in her 1961 hit Diamonds are Forever: “I don’t need love, for what good will love do me? Diamonds never lie to me, for when love’s gone, they’ll lustre on.”
Much like the women who came before her – Marilyn Monroe in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, swathed in pink satin, singing of the diamond’s faithful allegiance; Audrey Hepburn as the fiercely independent Holly Golightly, finding solace in the dazzling window displays of Tiffany & Co – she makes a strong case for the coveted gemstone to act as a symbol of autonomy. To make like a modern-day Golightly, wear your subtly sparkling Jazz and Soleste Tiffany earrings (crafted from diamonds, platinum and rubellite) artfully layered together on one ear. It’s an act of self-love.
