Coleen Garcia has a lot to smile about these days. Her latest flick with Piolo Pascual and Dawn Zulueta is on its way to being a box office hit and today, she's officially been launched as F&C Jewelry's newest ambassador. "Diamonds for day, why not?" she says with a smile to host Issa Litton, proving this statement as she pairs her pretty white lace dress with a delicate white gold horn necklace with diamonds and a dainty white gold charm bracelet. Her personal favorite: white gold attached rings with a filigree pattern because, "they really make such a statement." According to Marissa Florete of F&C Jewelry, the rings are designed to be worn on one finger and are connected with a chain to leave room for the knuckle to move freely.
We've gravitated towards the minimalist and delicate necklaces from the Diamonds and Denim collection. You can wear them alone or together, the effect is perfect for when you unbutton your shirt a few notches too low. Marjorie Florete of F&C Jewelry tells us that they're really designed to give girls like us the chance to wear diamonds in the daytime. Any excuse to add a bit of sparkle to the everyday, we say.
Pretty as real jewelry is, it also costs a pretty penny in comparison to the fashion trinkets we buy. Coleen is quick to say that she feels that these pieces are a true investment. "I'm looking at pieces I can pass on to my daughters to my future granddaughters. That's why I'm not just looking at trendy pieces."
