5 Kardashian Wedding Facts

The day has come, the beautiful Kim Kardashian got married! It hasn’t been that long since we reported the engagement of Kim and her now husband Kris Humphries but they managed to pull off an extravagant wedding in only three months. You’ll be able to watch the whole event from the comfort of your home in a couple of months on E!.  Until then, we’re excited to report on the details of the wedding here.

1. Celebrity Guests: 450 people were in attendance including celebs Eva Longoria, Ryan Seacrest, Kathy Lee Gifford, Spice Girl Mel B and Lindsay Lohan. Some guests had to be cut from the list last minute to make room for E! film crew. Ouch!

2. Wedding party: The color scheme for the extravagant wedding was a classy black and white. The only time it’s ok for other woman to wear white to your wedding is when you have a B&W color scheme. Sisters Khloe and Kourtney served as co-maid of honors and Kendall, Kylie and the groom’s sister Kaela were the bridesmaids in ivory gowns that have been described as “very Pippa”. Kim has said on numerous occasions that she wanted her wedding to be bigger and better than the Royal Wedding. Not sure if that was accomplished but a girl can dream.

3. The Jewels: Kim wore a jeweled headpiece adorning with diamonds, some falling gracefully on her forehead. A very different look than I wasn’t expecting on her wedding day but she pulled it off in true Kardashian style. She also wore gorgeous drop earrings which we have a very similar pair at Ice at a much more affordable price. There was an absence of a necklace but with all the sparkly diamonds on her headpiece it was probably best to not look too overdone.

4. Food & Entertainment: Singer Robin Thicke sang his soulful song Angels for Mr & Mrs. Humphrie’s first dance and legendary Earth, Wind & Fire performed during the rest of the night along with a DJ. Wolfgang Puck prepared an array of tasty treats for the guests. Sticking with their B&W theme the wedding cake was chocolate and vanilla. Sounds like a boring flavor for such a glamorous wedding but I’m sure it was delicious.

5. The Dress(es): Vera Wang designed the custom-made Ivory strapless gown with a full tulle skirt,  basque waist and Chantilly lace appliqué and a lonnngggg train. That was the main dress for the ceremony. The bride then changed into two other dresses throughout the night including a mermaid gown.

And that’s not the end of it ! Apparently they will be having another reception in NYC at the end of August. Why? I’m not sure but we’ll be looking out for it.

Congrats to the happy couple!

Ice Launch Party

Our Ice Cake!

Yesterday we unveiled the new look of Ice! Have you seen it yet? We were all in the festive mood in the Ice office yesterday. Employees dressed in our new brand colors; black, green and white. Of course all the ladies (and men) we’re sporting their favorite jewelry from Ice.

It was an exciting day to finally see the look of Ice transform from the original look that was created over 10 years ago to a brand new sleek and modern design. We are thrilled with how this makeover turned out! Isn’t it gorgeous?

As part of the celebration we took a break from our regular work schedule and gave a celebratory toast of bubbly with the entire company. The most delicious part of the day was when we got to dig into the chocolate cake and cupcakes. Yesterday also happened to be National Cupcake Day so we had to have some to celebrate – Made by yours truly ;)

Guest Stylist Erica Diamond Picks Winners from Ice

I am both thrilled and excited to announce that I have teamed up with Ice to create the Erica Diamond Collection of jewelry, inspired by the modern woman and mom.

As women, mothers, wives, partners, sisters, daughters and friends, we are all professional multi-taskers trying to look and feel our best. I have chosen a jewelry collection that is about celebrating womanhood around the world and recognizing the different facets of our lives… sexy, playful, elegant, edgy. That is this collection… simple, classy, versatile, modern, and AFFORDABLE. What could be better?

The challenge? The fun part? I wanted to keep the pieces below $150.00… a guilt free splurge! This collection is made up of fabulous, quality jewelry at incredible prices. Beauty and simplicity… these pieces can be worn around town, to mom-and-me play-dates, to the office, for drinks with friends, or date night. Whether you’re feeling classy or sexy, you will find something in this collection to go with that mood.

So here we go, a few of the highlights of my favorites…

  • My followers know I love a good hoop earring… it goes daytime, nighttime, anytime, with anything! I have found you the PERFECT hoops at the perfect price. Sexy and simple.
  •  

  • There’s nothing better for fall than these 4-carat London Blue Topaz Earrings… classy for daytime and nighttime! Simply gorgeous with a price that cannot be beat.
  •  

  • Because I’m all HEART, I have chosen two amazing heart pendants… Tiffany WHO? You will never take off this gorgeous 14K White Gold and Diamond Heart. Or what about a 1-Carat Ruby and Sterling Silver Heart Pendent to jazz up any crisp white shirt, plunging neckline or black fall turtle neck. Love love!
  •  

  • Treat yourself to a multi-gemstone ring with Citrine, Garnet, Topaz, Amethyst and Peridot gems! Brightens up any outfit! At $45.00 for all these stones, it’s a steal!
  •  

  • I’m loving my new Sterling Silver Diamond “E” Pendant. Yes, that’s both STERLING SILVER AND DIAMOND for $60.00. A great gift for any day, for a birthday or anniversary… hint hint to the partner in your life. Or even for your child!
  •  

  • But one of my favorites are the MOM & ME BRACELETS! If I had a daughter, she would be wearing one with me!! So if you’re a mommy to girls, go ahead and match your bracelets- Mommy and me bracelets- love it!
  •  

  • The 4 3/8 Carat Amethyst & White Topaz Sterling Silver Ring is fabulous because it instantly dresses up and adds pizzazz to any outfit– and the Belt Buckle ring with REAL white and black diamonds is a MUST-HAVE!
  •  

  • And finally, because I adore cuff bracelets, here are two great options… one for an elegant evening, and one for being FUNKY anytime!

 

I can’t wait for you to wear The Erica Diamond Collection for Ice. You will feel beautiful, strong and sexy… how every woman deserves to feel.

One Day Inspired Jewelry

I’m a sucker for romance. Who isn’t, really? So I have been eagerly anticipating the premiere of the movie One Day starting the lovely Anne Hathaway and the charming Jim Sturgess.  The movie, based on the international best-selling novel by David Nichols, spans a 20 year friendship between the two lead characters Emma and Dexter. The two get together once a year since the day they met in 1988.

We loved seeing the fashion & jewelry trends spanning the 20 years in which the film takes place in. Ice put together a collection of 15 jewelry pieces inspired by One Day. The collection includes both classic and whimsical pieces that can look fabulous today as they might have 20 years ago. These timeless pieces include hoop earrings similar to the ones Emma is seen wearing several times over the years, lots of heart jewelry to pair with the love theme and much more. We’ve marked down these pieces by 20% for you to enjoy

Are you planning on seeing the movie One Day? It starts in theaters nationwide this weekend, August 19th.

* Fun Feature on the One Day website is an interactive timeline of what was going on in the world every year on the day they met up on the 20 years the movie takes place in. Check it out here.

In 1999, the year Ice.com was founded, the #1 song on the radio was Jennifer Lopez’s “If you had my love” (loved this song!) and Richard Gere (so handsome!) was People’s Sexiest Man.

Moonlight Black Bridal Collection

It seems more and more brides-to-be are opening up to straying away from the typical white diamond engagement ring. The Sex and the City movie helped put black diamonds on the map a few years ago and the trend isn’t going away. Ice.com often gets requests for more black diamond engagement rings….so I present to you our new Moonlight Black Bridal Collection.

This affordable collection of engagement rings ranges from as low as $235 to $1295. About half of the collection highlights a center black diamond with white diamond accents on the band. There are also several featuring 3 main black diamond stones representing the couple’s past, present and future together.

What do you think of the Moonlight Black Bridal Collection – would you wear a Black diamond engagement ring?

 

Trend Alert! Stars Seeing Stars

Get rid of your polka dots & make room for stars! Have you noticed some of the hottest celebs sporting outfits covered in stars? We’ve seen stars like Jessica Alba, Fergie, Kim Kardashian, Olivia Wilde hitting the red carpet with large stars, little stars, stars on their dresses, sweaters, pants & accessories.

Going starry with your outfit it is quite the bold statement so if you’re not ready to leap out into the Universe with this look you can start will your jewelry. Ice has a gorgeous black & white diamond pendant, a simple diamond pendant or this pair of dazzling dangle star earrings and this best part, they’re all on sale!

Will you be adding stars to your wardrobe? We want to hear your thoughts on this trend in the comments below.

Which Kardashian Are You?

 

Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall and Kylie oh my! The sisters were seen together at the Teen Choice Awards this past weekend looking glamorous as usual. It’s always a nice change to see all the sister’s together without a screaming match like we’re used to on their show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

As you can see from the photo, each of the sisters have their own unique style. Their styles often cross over to each other but they always manage to look different from one another when together. I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s done on purpose.

There’s usually one in something short & tight, animal print or bold designs, trendy asymmetrical cuts or pretty & flowy dresses.  From the colorful Louboutins to the perfectly coordinated clutches  to the jewelry they sure know how to accessorize.

One thing we love about the Kardashians is that they are not afraid to go BOLD! They are often seen with stacked bangles, dazzling drop earrings and let’s not forget the ginormous engagement rings Kim and Khloe have been showing off. I particularly loved Kourtney’s dangly earrings in this pic, they reminded me of the Amethyst & Citrine earrings from Ice. This color combination would actually be perfect for Khloe to wear to support her Lakers hubby.

We want to know! Which Kardashian sister is your favorite?
