Diamonds are a girl's best friend

If Kate Middleton, aka the new Duchess of Cambridge's heirloom Garrard sapphire and diamond engagement ring and borrowed-from-the-queen Cartier tiara have given you a taste for fine jewellery, then check out Travel Diamonds.

Launched this month, it offers bling that looks like the real thing - without the price tag. In fact, pieces start from just £20.

The range of classic earring, necklace, bracelet and ring designs feature 'diamonds' (OK, cubic zirconia) set in silver and plated in white-, yellow- or rose-gold.

My favourites are the limited-edition necklaces and bracelets inspired by the hamsa hand and evil eye symbols, peace and love (as pictured here). The latter reminds me of Paloma Picasso's love pendant for Tiffany & Co, but at a snip of the price. Delicate and understated, they're perfect for everyday wear. Here's the details...

Medium eye pendant in white-gold-plate, cubic zirconia and simulated citrine and sapphire, £45.

Love pendant in white-gold-plate and cubic zirconia, £75.

Peace sign pendant with tiny evil eye detail in gold-plate, cubic zirconia and simulated sapphire, £45.

Btw, don't you just love these paper dolls? As well as modelling the Travel Diamonds necklaces, they're in this season's prints from Whistles.
