Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, they say. But what about loose, unused, beautiful diamonds that you’re not sure what to do with? You’d be surprised by how commonly people give their relatives loose diamonds as part of an inheritance, an heirloom, or just as an investment.

If you happen to possess loose diamonds, it’s tricky figuring out what you can do with them. Here are some suggestions that are worth considering:


1.     Turn them into gorgeous earrings

Diamonds are timeless, and you can easily use them to make yourself a pair of earrings that is wearable and beautiful.

There are dozens of styles to choose from, including dangling earrings, studs, and so much more. You can get accent pieces, heirloom accessories, or daily wear items that are work-friendly too!

2.     Make a tennis bracelet with them

Tennis bracelets get their name from the fact that Chriss Evert popularized them, and there are many accounts about how this happened. Whatever the case, they remain a gorgeous, understated accessory that works perfectly with loose diamonds. You can use the diamonds you own to create a delicate link of stones that sits on your wrist and turns heads wherever you go.
