Diamonds on the Move

Dangling, trembling or swinging, diamonds that move are the sexiest thing going

Nothing sets off formalwear Like the sparkle and fire of diamonds. Jewelers have long known that if you want to see them sparkle their best – let ’em move!

Jewelry that moves, which the French describe as en tremblant, includes everything from necklaces and earrings to pendants and pins. Be sure to let customers try on these pieces. Their dynamism can be appreciated fully only with the turn of a head or the flick of a jacket lapel.

Diamond jewelry that moves is likely to be popular this summer because Hollywood celebrities are flocking to the look. From antique styles to modern mystery settings, the effect of movement can be achieved in a variety of looks. Some examples follow.
