Implications - Diamonds are a girl's best friend, and girls don't care if they come separately, or attached to other objects they love -- like lipstick. Adorning products with diamonds is just one of the ways in which brands today are appealing to the luxury-loving woman. Further, affluent consumers want to flaunt their wealth, and having everyday items studded with diamonds or encased in gold offers a simple solution.
