Growing up, my jewelry collection was pretty boring. I went through a gold phase and then got into silver and platinum jewelry. I always kept it pretty simple, wearing diamond studs everyday. No extra color. Silver goes with everything, right? Well, sort of. In recent years, I have learned to love color.
I love to see how color can turn something plain into something beautiful. I love how just a little colorful accent can completely change an outfit. Often I’ll wear greys, browns or blacks and add in a bright necklace or bracelet to draw just enough attention. Color can be a confidence booster. I could hide behind my silver chain and diamond studs and blend in with everyone, or I could chance the attention that bright color brings. Who doesn’t love getting compliments on how they look?
That’s what my collection is about. Maybe it’s the amethyst pendant that draws out the purple tones in your blue eyes, or the ruby bracelet with a little black dress. It’s that little pop of color that doesn’t overwhelm, but makes a statement. Here are some of my absolute favorites from my collection.
Pink & White Sapphire Ring (pictured right): This pink ring is one of my favorite pieces that Ice sells. I love pink! Deep down, I’m very much a girly girl. Throw in this daisy bracelet and they’re two fun and casual pieces that go well with jeans and a t-shirt.
I love the tennis bracelets in my collection (pictured above). I can visualize them being worn together with a bright top, or separately with a more formal outfit. This colored tennis bracelet and multi-gemstone ring (pictured below) would work well with a solid colored suit or dress to show your whimsical side even in a business setting.
If there’s one thing I could emphasize with my collection, it’s that colorful jewelry can bring life to plain outfits and help your personality shine through, even in business attire. All of the pieces in the collection transition well from day to night and from casual to formal. They all have a personality of their own!
