Diesel was founded in 1978 by Italian designer Renzo Rosso, who had the ambition of creating a brand which was innovative, edgy and representative of Italian style with a cosmopolitan edge. Diesel quickly became popular following its launch launched and it is favoured because it provides a fashion brand that sits between high end designer and High Street. Diesel primarily became most renowned for its range of denim but today the brand has extended its product lines and we can now enjoy the Diesel style in the form of sunglasses, watches and jewellery.
The main essence of Diesel is a dynamic, edgy and cutting edge style and the great range of Diesel jewellery is no exception. Featuring black and stainless steel chunky rings, necklaces and bracelets this iconic brand designs its jewellery to provide the wearer with a unique sense of style and character. The Diesel lettering is often boldly featured across the pieces and the materials used include leather, silver, semi-precious stones and resins. The jewellery is innovative, dynamic, incredibly stylish and very much sought after.
The range of rings are exceptionally popular and with designs such as the DX0199 with its wide silver band and a classic Diesel logo with a black surround section as the dominant and striking feature, this unisex ring is definitely a statement! The men’s black DX0051 ring with its black band and silver Diesel lettering logo which wraps around is a great example of urban style and looks incredibly funky and masculine. The DX0045 ring is a similar style in silver but the Diesel lettering logo is laser cut around the circumference of the band.
The DX0198 unisex bracelet would look equally great on men and women. For ladies, a current key trend is the ‘biker look’ where we are seeing girly dresses for example teamed with leather jackets, biker boots or edgy jewellery to create depth and a dynamic style. This bracelet features a chain link attachment and a carbon section with the Diesel logo. The DX0089 is another cool bracelet for ladies and a little more typically feminine with three strands incorporating pyramid links and a Diesel logo clasp.
Dog tag necklaces are synonymous with street/urban style and the unisex Diesel DX0005 is incredibly simple but statement with a black leather coated dog tag with the Diesel logo and an embossed Indian head logo.
The Diesel brand is renowned for being extremely high quality and the range of Diesel jewellery also reflects that. For girls who favour and edgy and urban look, Diesel jewellery is a fantastic choice as it still retains a sense of femininity. Each product is manufactured to the highest quality possible and some pieces feature jewel embellishments and are typically steel with a brushed chrome finish. Diesel Jewellery is definitely considered extremely sought after and each piece is designed to get noticed and add a real element of unique style to your look.

Since founded in 1978 by Italian designer Renzo Rosso, Diesel has become one of the most fashionable, urban, cool and desirable brands out there. The label originally manufactured jeans but as the popularity grew, it branched into the word of accessories and jewellery; creating unique and dynamic pieces that are hugely popular among the most fashionable trend setters.
If you are looking to find a piece of jewellery that has statement style written all over it (quite literally), look no further than the Diesel range. The collection is mainly unisex so I wouldn’t describe the pieces as……feminine – the styles tend to be a little more street and urban style and guaranteed to get noticed. The Diesel rings are popular with a stainless steel band with the brand logo wrapped around – very funky indeed! The Diesel dog tag necklaces completely depict urban style and create an edgy look to the plainest of outfits.
Diesel has managed to establish itself in the fashion market as a high end, desirable brand appealing to those people with a taste for high fashion, but the price also reflects it is attainable to everyone. Many of the jewellery pieces are of a reasonable price but you still know that you are investing in something extremely cool that will never go out of fashion. Diesel is one of those classic brands that sets its own trends as opposed to following in the footsteps of others. Buy a Diesel cuff bracelet today and the chances are it will still be adorning your wrist and receiving compliments in 5 years time.
Diesel Jewellery is fast becoming one of the coolest jewellery brands around and portrays ultimate self confidence in your style. If you’re looking for an unusual eye catching piece, Diesel Jewellery items are certainly the must have and best of all, most of the pieces are for both men and women so you can even steal it from your other half and still look stylish!

Diesel was once renowned as a fashion brand which specialised in denim, but over recent years the label is now not only popular for its cool range of jeans but also its accessories; particularly watches. The creator of Diesel is Italian fashion designer Renzo Rosso who founded the company in 1978. Rosso’s aim was to design pieces that were unique and completely different from the common trends of fashion within that era and would continue to question fashion tradition in the future. Therefore his creative team were encouraged to be as daring as they liked, and the end products resulted in clothes and accessories that are an expression of individual style.
We all know that Diesel jeans are still a firm favourite today with their edgy look and great fit, and the same can also be said for their watches which are one of the best quality range of timepieces you could invest in. If you are looking for a purely classic style, this may not be the range for you, but what you will certainly find is a fantastic selection of watches that give you the ability to express yourself and really make a style statement. If you are after a watch with a strap or perhaps a more elegant style bracelet, Diesel watches appeal to every age and taste. For the more ‘techy’ fashion fans among us who prefer watches with a futuristic twist, the Diesel DZ9024 model is perfect and has a funky design with a multi display. We all like to feel that we are buying something on trend yet still unique to our own style. Diesel has depicted that statement perfectly and as a result, their watches will never look dated or ‘out of fashion’.
Having recently celebrated its 30th birthday this month, Diesel went all out and held parties in 17 cities around the world. Celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Mark Ronson and Supergrass who are fans of the brand were in attendance and this significant birthday proves that Diesel has become one of the most influential and fashionable brands the world has ever seen……and is only becoming stronger with age.
