It’s upon us! That exciting time of year when it seems everyone is getting married or engaged, Wedding Season! As a bride, you have so many decisions to make about your big day! Jewelry and accessories are extremely important to complete the bridal look you want to achieve. We have put together a few bridal themes to consider as you design your look!
The Classic Bride : is one who channels Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn in her fashions. One who loves tradition, embodies elegance, and is unaffected by trends.
The Romantic Rose Gold Bride: Do you dream in pink? Are you a hopeless romantic? This might be you! There is something modern, yet nostalgic about a rose gold jewelry and we love it!
The Non Traditional Bride : is the girl who wants to be whisked away to Las Vegas , by her special someone on a minute’s notice! She isn’t concerned with traditions or a large reception. No way! She is spontaneous, throws her favorite frock on, and runs to the chapel!
The Boho Bride: Do you dream of having your first wedded kiss on a sandy beach…with the crashing of waves replacing ‘Here Comes The Bride’? Or perhaps you want to get married near a river with your close friends and family under brightly lit trees. This is probably you! The gal who will wear her hair down and natural, perhaps reciting her own vows, barefoot of course!
On your wedding day it’s not only about the engagement ring! Your whole look needs to be taken into account! Why not make ICE.com your one-stop-shop for all your bridal jewelry? We would love to help you find the perfect pieces for you, however unique or traditional, for your perfect day!
I know current staples in your jewelry collection could include cuff bracelets, body chains and a layered necklace, but let’s talk timeless!
What do you think of when you hear ‘timeless jewelry staple’? I think diamond studs, pearls, hoops and tennis bracelets. Definitely tennis bracelets! I remember as a child my mother getting one and I thought it was the most beautiful, sparkling thing I’d ever seen! Wanted one from that moment on!
Hello and Happy Birthday, July Babies!
Welcome to the Wonderful World of Ruby!
Here are five FUN facts about the gemstone, Ruby:
1. There’s no Place like Home! You know we can’t talk about Rubies without talking about Dorothy’s red slippers! Did you know that in the original novel, the slippers were silver? Yep! For the 1939 film, they changed them to Ruby red to take advantage of the (then new) Technicolor film process! There’s no place like home! There’s no place like home! 2. Jessica Simpson Said YES to Ruby! Jessica Simpson’s engagement ring is a huge (over 5 carats!) Ruby, flanked with two very nice sized white diamonds! Hubby also got a ruby in his custom wedding band to complement Jessica’s! While Jessica’s birthday is in July, the color red represents so much more to the couple! 3. The Liberty Bell Ruby…Largest Ruby Ever! The Liberty Bell Ruby was the largest mined in the world! Found in the 1950’s in east Africa, weighed four pounds, was 8500 carats and was sculpted into a mini Liberty Bell. It was valued at $2,000,000, until it was stolen! 4. The King of Gems! The Ruby, known for bestowing fortune, is the second hardest mineral…beat only by the diamond! Wow…fortune and brawn…I’m game! 5. You have what? ICE.com has a great selection of Ruby jewelry for every budget! Yes, even you!

You Tell Me: Would you enjoy a colored gemstone for an engagement ring? Are you more traditional? Or would you be thrilled no matter what?

It just so happens that we have launched fragrances! We are so excited to bring you all the timeless classics, new and trending scents and everything in between! And, there are some interesting ‘in betweens’!

Ok! I’m not one to usually start a post with ‘SHOP NOW’! So cliche!
But…Mom really is worth it! Trust me! You don’t want to wait til the last minute and miss the good sales! As I always say…Spend more on the gift, not the overnight shipping! ;)
What to get? That might seem like a tough question, but it’s really not. Of course everyone has their tastes, that’s a given. I’ve found that myself and most women I know, like versatile, multipurpose everything! Oh, this one bottle of cleaner can be used on every surface in the house? I’ll take two!
Therefore, a safe bet for most women, would be a beautiful piece of jewelry that goes great with jeans or a little black dress!
Now, now…I am NOT saying that we don’t love the other ends of the spectrum! Multicolored jelly, and exquisite tennis bracelets have their place…every woman should own both…but a nice day to night piece is almost a shoe in!
Come check out our Mother’s Day Sale, lots of great deals on really cute stuff! If you want some more help selecting the perfect gift, come see us on chat! We will find the perfect thing together!
What do you think when you hear someone mention a string of pearls? Or pearl earrings?
I think most people, myself previously included, think of the old standard white pearls. You know, the kind your mom and grandma used to wear! If that’s what you still think, you are going to like this!
Did you know that pearls come in SEVERAL different natural colors? Gold, black, brown, purple, pink…lots of colors. Honestly, before I got into the jewelry business, I thought they came in white/cream colors only. I think I might have seen different colors, but assumed they were dyed…or maybe I didn’t care enough to know because, quite frankly, I thought they were boring! Wrong! Let me tell you! These ain’t your grandmas pearls!
I think it’s fascinating that pearls are the only gemstone that are made from a living creature. That in itself is worth mentioning. In it’s own paragraph!
Now, I’m not going to get all technical, and tell you about freshwater versus cultured, how to clean them and the different shapes. Really, I just want everyone to know how beautiful (because beautiful things are my thing) and fun pearls can be. If you really want to know all that, though, you can click HERE to read all about them on our website!
