Marilyn Monroe may have been on to something more profound when she sang "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend." Turns out the precious gemstones that adorned the late actress in the film "Gentleman Prefer Blondes" have the ability to make our hair, skin and nails shine, too.
Diamonds are spilling out of jewelry boxes and into beauty treatments, as more brands create products, treatments and tools infused with small particles of the shimmering stone. Many experts have claimed that diamonds help to slow down the signs of aging and now Beyoncé has reportedly credited her radiant complexion to a diamond dust treatment.
Intrigued by this luxurious beauty trend? Below are nine diamond beauty treatments to bling out your look (if you happen to have heaps of cash just laying around).
Natura Bisse Diamond Skin Perfection
The Daily Mail recently revealed that Beyoncé relies on Natura Bisse's diamond magnetic therapy treatment, as well as the brand's face moisturizer, to maintain her luminous glow. Well, if it's good for Bey, then you know her fans will stop at nothing to get their hands on her skincare secret.
Balancing Diamonds Massage at The Spa at Trump SoHo New York
If you are checking into the Trump SoHo hotel, the lower Manhattan destination offers a signature soothing rubdown using oils infused with precious diamonds and botanical essences. A 90-minute massage will set you back $295 on a weekday and $325 on weekends, but there's always the birthday discount.
Harrods Diamond and Meteorite Dust Blowout
With so many blowout bars popping up across the country, just about anyone can get Farrah Fawcett-worthy hair without breaking the bank. But would you pay $500 if the service included diamonds? Back in 2011, Harrods Urban Retreat Spa in London added a diamond and meteorite dust-infused blowout treatment.
Beauty Lab Black Diamond Energizing Serum
The U.S. market for anti-aging products are in the billions thanks to baby boomers. This fine lines and wrinkle-reducing serum, made out of black diamonds and sapphires, is sure to grab their attention.
La Prairie Cellular Microdermabrasion Cream
When we think of diamond beauty treatments, La Prairie is one of the first brands that comes to mind. Having pioneered the use of the precious stone in skincare, the brand's Cellular Microdermabrasion Cream is made up of micronized diamonds, fresh water pearls and quartz crystals that penetrate and perfect blemished skin. It only sets you back $400.
An esthetician thought to create this $300 at-home skincare tool with a genuine diamond tip that removes dead skin cells and stimulates collagen production to achieve brighter and smoother complexion. Will it give the Clarisonic a run for its money?
Knesko Skin Diamond Radiance Eye Pads
For those folks who believe plopping slices of cool cucumbers on their eyelids to reduce puffiness is blasé, there are these eye pads blended with diamond powder, jojoba oil and marine collagen.
J'Ai of Beverly Hills Balancing Scrub
Exfoliating is a key yet often skipped step in daily skincare. We've found some pretty amazing drugstore scrubs, but this little gem (no pun intended) grabbed our attention when we read "precision diamond crystals" on the label.
Azature Black Diamond Nail Polish
Jewelry couturier Azature made us feel guilty about paying four bucks for a bottle of nail polish when they introduced this black diamond lacquer with a $250,000 price tag. But that didn't stop "Fashion Police" host Kelly Osbourne from flaunting the expensive manicure at the 2012 Emmys. (Unfortunately, not everyone was loving it.)
Would you try any of these diamond beauty treatments?
