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?

Revitalize Your Skin With Rubies & Diamonds?

Photo by PR Photos

Many gemstones are used for various uses such as construction tools with diamonds. Diamonds are the hardest of all substances therefore it has the ability to cut many materials. We just heard about another use of gemstones that appeals more to the female demographic rather than men’s tools. Actress Mila Kunis reportedly enjoyed a Ruby and Diamond facial!

Sounds weird, doesn’t it? The star splurged a whopping $7000 on this skin treatment to prep her look for her press tour for her new movie Friends with Benefits.

For those who are curious, the procedure is called the HD Diamond and Ruby Peel which uses rubies and diamonds as antioxidants for the skin leaving your skin with a natural glow. Mila has used this procedure in the past for the Golden Globes so she must have been happy with the results to splurge on it again. I think Mila is gorgeous with or without the pricey facial.

What do you think of this procedure? Do you think diamonds and rubies can actually help your skin?

Sandra Bullock & Ryan Reynolds Reunite

Ryan Reynolds & Sandra Bullock on the red carpet

You should remember the on-screen (and off-screen) chemistry from The Proposal stars Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds. While the two have always denied being romantically linked we can’t help but think they would be perfect together. This week, Sandra surprised Ryan on the red carpet at the premiere of his new movie The Change-Up. (I hear it’s hilarious by the way)

The unexpected guest had Ryan thrilled as he ran over to her to say hello. The two posed for pictures together and I have to say Sandy is looking damn good!

The actress pulls off an effortless look on the red carpet with a black Lanvin jumpsuit and gold jewelry that really makes her summery glow pop. She’s looking quite fabulous with large gold bracelets and hoop earrings. Women often have the misconception that hoops are only for youngsters but we totally disagree! Stars like Helen Mirren rock hoops all the time.

What do you think of Sandra’s golden look?

Gallery 10 Collection

Talk about making a statement! The items in the new Gallery 10 Collection know how to get attention.

These pieces were inspired by European styles by taking simple designs such as flowers and heart jewelry and adding a little twist to them. This has left a bold luxurious look that will have everyone giving you a double take to check out your jewels.

Each item is well finished using high quality CZ in vibrant purple and classic black & white with rhodium plating in black and rose. The rose and purple color combinations is stunning in person!

Certain elements of these items like the rose metals and the abstract designs are very on-trend right now but these pieces are going to be stylish for many years to come.

What do you think of the new Gallery 10 Collection? Which pieces in the collection are your favorite?
