Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women. One in eight women will be diagnosed in their lifetime.
Yes, that’s a strong statement. And a true one.
We are glad to be able to join others this October to raise awareness and funds to help fight this horrible disease and educate women (and men) on early detection.
It’s unfortunately safe to say most of us know someone whose life has been affected by breast cancer. Please visit The National Breast Cancer Foundation website and learn all about the disease, how to administer self exams, how you can help and much more.
We have some beautiful, limited edition pieces of jewelry we just added to our website. Check them out here. Not only do they make beautiful gifts for yourself or others affected, 8% of the sale price will be donated to The National Breast Cancer Foundation to help educate others and fight this disease.
We are excited to announce we are now carrying pink and yellow Moissanite jewelry! But we also wanted to share about a few of the different styles we have available.
First…what is Moissanite? Here is a little blurb, straight from it’s creator! Classic Moissanite™ is the world’s most brilliant gem®. Inspired by the beauty and fire of natural moissanite, discovered over a century ago in an ancient meteorite by Dr. Henri Moissan, Charles & Colvard® patented an ethical process for growing gem-quality Moissanite. More brilliant than a diamond at a fraction of the cost, more durable than a sapphire, ruby, or emerald, nothing compares to or outshines Charles & Colvard Created Moissanite®.
Now, the fun stuff! Let’s look at jewelry!
As I mentioned, we are now carrying colored Moissanite. Below is the pink and it’s gorgeous! It’s a cushion cut stone with a halo of white Moissanite stones!
These are yellow gold Moissanite earrings. I love the bezel set studs, very classy and fun!
Last but not least, the solitaire pendant! This is a 1 carat white gold and Moissanite pendant necklace that would look fabulous on anyone!
I tell people all the time, that the pictures do not do Moissanite justice. I know with a lot of things you can buy online, the picture often looks better. Not so with Moissanite. The true beauty somehow can’t be captured in an image.
The jewelry industry is dominated (almost monopolized) by huge corporations making tremendous profits. Did you know Signet Jewelers (the company that owns Zales, Kay, and Jared jewelry stores) made $788M in profit over the last 12 months?!
Now, we believe in some profit and providing AMERICAN jobs (we have offices in Austin, TX and Salt Lake City, UT) to help stimulate the economy, but we know this can be done while focusing more on creating a better experience for the customer. This is why we are working to change this industry by enabling our customers to buy directly from designers and manufacturers supplying these companies.
Thank you for your past, present, and future support as we work to build this business.

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!

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!
