Diamonds are a girl’s best friend – as Ms Monroe purred – but if the current throng of men sporting ice is to be believed, they’re a boy’s, too. Even Centre Court maverick Nick Kyrgios isn’t immune to their charms, donning a custom brilliant-cut choker and double hoop earrings for this year’s Wimbledon – appropriate for the game’s undisputed rough diamond. The earring – once a symbol of non-conformism – has been refashioned in precious materials as the ultimate ear candy by Maria Tash, Kolours and Shaun Leane, while coloured stones of note are rising in rank. ‘Earthy and neutral stones like emeralds and white diamonds are easy to wear with most outfits, while sapphires are great for adding verve to a formal look,’ says Kyron Keogh, co-founder of jewellers Rox Diamonds & Thrills. The brooch – once the preserve of grandmothers and grand duchesses – is now also firmly on the male style agenda thanks to the creative efforts of high-end jewellers like Dior and Tiffany, with the late Black Panther actor Chadwick Boseman and Bridgerton man-about-town, Regé-Jean Page known for favouring lavish lapel hardware for the red carpet.
