Finding the perfect diamond jewelry for every desire

We all heard the saying “a diamond is forever.” While this slogan’s early purpose is for marketing, through the years, it help mold our idea about the precious gem. Diamonds are such iconic status symbols in fashion that they became among the many wardrobe staples women—and even men—must have in their closets. That is why selecting the right diamond jewelry to go to your style arsenal is key.

As someone who bought diamond jewelry with her own money during her professional years in acting, Sarah Lahbati knows that it can be hard to decide which one to get. Picking the right one must be a decision you’ve thought through many times as this piece of jewelry is not only expensive but an investment. If it is your first time buying diamond jewelry, the actress dishes out a tip one should keep in mind before making the big purchase.

“My tip in buying diamond jewelry is that select something that is timeless, nothing very trendy or loud,” she tells Manila Bulletin Lifestyle. “Of course, we all have our own personal taste, but I always go for something that is timeless yet makes a statement.”

A testament to her guide, Sarah’s first diamond jewelry purchase is a tennis bracelet from homegrown jewelry brand Tessera. Today, the 28-year-old mom and actress becomes the first ambassador for the brand. 

“The Tessera Lady is someone who aspires to great things in life. Someone who is hardworking, driven, passionate, and just simply loves life. Someone who celebrates the small and big things and carries herself with beauty and class in whatever role she portrays – be it a mom, a wife, an entrepreneur, a boss, or a leader,” Papat Fider, Tessera co-founder and sales director, says. “She is someone who is beautiful and elegant and just simply wants to shine wherever she goes and in whatever she does.“

Since 2011, Tessera has been offering customized and personalized jewelry pieces to its clientele. But it was in 2016 when it started offering the widest assortment of internationally certified and conflict-free diamonds in the Philippines. Believe it or not, even during the pandemic, there is still a great demand for diamonds, according to the brand’s founder and CEO, Carl Fider.

As for Carl’s professional tip on purchasing diamond jewelry, “You can always research about the four Cs of a diamond, but the ultimate test in buying a diamond is that the diamond has to speak to you.”

For a closer look at your next diamond purchase, you can visit Tessera at 38 Rockwell, 38 Rockwell Drive, Makati City or at The Arton Strip, Katipunan Avenue corner Highland Drive, Quezon City.
