Exclusive Ice Collection – Seasons

Our latest collection at Ice fits in perfectly with the cool weather outside. The Seasons by Ice Collection features pretty silver snowflake designs in rings, pendants, earrings and bracelets. Each piece is accented with real diamonds or gemstones. If your birthday is in the next couple of months, you’ll find your birthstone featured in some of these wintery pieces including blue topaz, garnet and amethyst.

One of my favorite pieces of the collection is the ‘Wish Pendant‘. It has a unique shape and featured a cute sparkly diamond star. It reminds me of all the nights I used to look up in the sky and recite “Star light, star bright, first start I see tonight…” Simply beautiful and available at a great price.

Wish Pendant

The entire Seasons Collection is exclusive to only Ice customers. These snowflake pieces will only be available for the Winter months. Once the next season comes around we will introduce a whole new line of Spring. Look out for the beginning of each season for new pieces added to the Seasons Collection.

5 Facts About December’s Birthstones – Blue Topaz

Even though you might see the colors red and green plastered everywhere with Christmas on it’s way, the real color of the month is blue. Cool icy blue topaz is December’s birthstone and without a doubt one of the most popular gemstones at Ice. Here’s a few fun facts about blue topaz that you might not have known.

1. There are three main shades of blue topaz – Sky, Swiss and London Blue. Sky and Swiss are on the lighter side while London Blue is a much deeper blue color, almost resembling sapphire. (The ring pictured to the right features both London blue and sky blue topaz.)

2. It is believed that topaz can cool boiling water when thrown into a pot (and to cool down hot tempers as well). I will believe it without trying it – wouldn’t want to risk damaging my blue topaz jewelry. ; )

3. Topaz is actually near colorless or white but through natural or man-made heat the stones come in a variety of colors. Aside from the most popular blue, you can find topaz in pink, yellow, red, green and several other color variations.

4. When gifted to a loved one, the blue topaz symbolizes eternal love and faithfulness.

5. There are also two alternative blue gemstones known to be December’s birthstone – Tanzanite and Turquoise. Each are different but all have a beautiful blue color.

Natalie Getz Jewelry Selections

Natalie Getz is our latest Celebrity Guest Stylist at Ice. You may know her from ABC’s ‘The Bachelor – Season 13′ , where she competed for Jason Mesnick’s heart, and as the winner of ‘The Bachelor Pad – Season 1′. These days she’s keeping busy as a Fashion Stylist, writer, TV personality with a new series coming this Spring. Natalie partnered with Ice to choose a collection of her favorite jewelry pieces.

Growing up, I was always a bit of a tomboy, but absolutely loved fashion.  I never wore much jewelry, because it seemed as though the only jewelry offered was basic silver and gold. Now we have so many options in modern day jewelry and I am diving in with an interest in loud colors and artistic pieces like the ones in my Ice jewelry selections. I love the morganite and black diamond rose gold ring! (pictured right)

Cuff bracelets, bangles, beads and multi-colored jewelry are my style and I want to share some of my favorite pieces with you! The cuffs I have featured in my jewelry collection are of huge interest to me as they are such unique and artistic pieces.  They are original and stand out more than most cuffs.  The more cuffs and bangles around your wrists the better!

Cuff Bracelets

Don’t be afraid to wear casual jewelry with formal attire! If anything, it will show your original, playful side and express your personality beyond what you are wearing. Another huge trend I am a believer of is multi-colored jewelry. Reason being, you can wear the simplest of clothing and utilize colorful, playful jewelry as your statement piece to give your style a whole new look!

Multi-Colored Jewelry

I’m hoping you find the pieces I have featured in my Ice Jewelry Selections as helpful as I do when I’m having one of those, “I have nothing to wear” days.  Throw on a basic tee, skinny jeans and great pair of ankle boots and watch the outfit be taken to the next level by pairing it with some of these wonderful jewelry pieces!

Cheers and Happy Holidays!

Give Peace This Holiday Season

No matter what the year is, the peace sign never goes out of style. I love the look of incorporating the peace sign in jewelry.  Ice recently got a new diamond silver pendant (picture right) that is so adorable. You can wear it alone for a casual look or layered with longer necklaces for a bolder statement.

Another recent Ice addition is this pretty rose gold peace sign pendant accented with diamonds. Rose Gold is so hot right now, if you’re looking to add at least one rose piece to your jewelry collection I recommend this piece.

Top 3 Style Winners at American Music Awards

Last night’s 2011 American Music Awards was full of entertaining performances and stylish looks from the talented guests. Some of my favorite looks of the night were:

1. Jennifer Lopez: This woman is hot! She can dance better than most of her competitors who are half her age. She donned several outfits throughout the night including a barely-there Britney-esque bedazzled leotard during one of her performances. My favorite look of the night was the black and sheer gown she wore to accept her award. Her hair was pinned back in classic J.Lo style, exposing stunning drop earrings.  If you want to get the same look, try out these CZ earrings for an incredible sparkle.

2. Katy Perry: She’s fun, adorable and sexy all rolled up into one fabulously talented performer. She received a standing ovation during her performance while she wore a Jetsons-like pink ensemble. Her red carpet look was the real attention grabber. She wore a Vivienne Westwood gown on the red carpet with a amazing hairpiece designed by Westwood and accessorized with large cocktail rings.

3. Heidi Klum: There were lots of silver looks at the AMAs but the best use of silver award goes hands-down to supermodel Heidi Klum. Her cut-out knee-length dress was simple but made a big impact. Accessorize this look with silver jewelry with bright gemstones to really make them pop.

Twilight: Breaking Dawn Sparkly Ladies

The Twilight Saga, either you love it or you hate. There’s been much hype over the movie, as with all of them and Twi-hards are eagerly awaiting the premiere this Friday. Earlier this week, the Hollywood premiere of the movie was held and the stars of the movie looked amazing on the red black carpet.

There was sequins and sparkly embellishments on many of the women in the cast. Kristen Stewart aka Bella Swan, looked mature in her long purple J. Mendel gown with a thigh high split. All the ladies in the Cullen clan where dressed to impress wearing long gowns. Ashley Greene pulled off the vamp-look with a stunning red Donna Karen dress with matching lips and nails. She opted for a black & gold ring that broke up the all-red ensemble.

One of my favorite looks of the night was by Nikki Reed (pictured right). She wore a Grecian Marchesa gown in a fabulous minty green accented with gold sequins. I loved her long drop earrings featuring an array of earth-tone colored gemstones.

Are you planning on seeing the new Twilight movie?

Colored Diamond Stud Earrings

I rarely go a day without wearing my studs. They’re the perfect go-to accessory for any outfit, whether you’re going to work, the gym, night out or even walking down the aisle. As your favorite jewelry blogger, I feel it’s my duty to introduce you to a world of new sparkly studs. When we think of studs it’s normally classic white diamond (or cubic zirconia) that first come to mind but have you seen colored diamond studs?

If you ever wished to add a dash of color to your regular studs and keep the luxury of diamonds I highly recommend choosing a pair of colored diamond studs. I’ve told you about black diamonds, pink diamonds and blue diamonds but we just got a few new more colors of the diamond rainbow. Check out our latest green diamond studs that would look great on green or hazel eyed beauties. These red diamond studs are a deep red color that will blend in with your Fall wardrobe nicely. Lastly, these yellow diamond studs will glow brilliantly all year round in any season. These three new diamond studs are all 1/2 total diamond weight so they are a perfect for a light splash of color to put in your second (or third, etc) piercing if you’re wearing a larger earring in your primary piercing.

Celleste’s Vintage Glam Selections

Last month we announced our exciting partnership with singer/songwriter Celleste. Her music is featured in many of our product videos on Ice and now we’re thrilled to launch Celleste’s selection of Vintage Glam Jewelry.

Celleste chose her favorite jewelry pieces from Ice and I had a chance to chat with her about her selections.

Laura: What was the inspiration behind the pieces of jewelry in your collection?

Celleste: I chose these particular pieces because they represent me the best. I like vintage and natural looking jewelry in an array of colors set in leather and metal, but at the same time having a glamorous accent. I also like pieces which are more sophisticated, chic and feminine, as long as they have some sort of edge.

L: How would you describe your personal style?

C: I always mix vintage and modern just like my music which I like to call “Modern Classic Rock”. I really like a combination of fresh, new looks, but always with an old-school feeling.

L: We love the vintage look of some of the pieces you chose – how do you combine these pieces with a modern outfit?

C: You just dare to do it. Most of the pieces I picked can be worn with casual clothes like jeans or dressier outfits just the same. I think it’s not about what you wear the pieces with but how you wear them. Be confident and feel good about yourself, and I promise anything will work!

L: Being a performer, what kind of jewelry do you usually wear on stage?

C: On stage I go for more basic and light pieces since I’m very energetic. I’ve learned the hard way that jewelry can injure. Not the most practical thing when you’re jumping up and down. ; ) So I usually go more for bracelets like cuffs. I’m so used to wearing a few of them on each arm that I feel naked on stage if I don’t have them on. As for earrings, they have to be delicate and light, so I always wear studs.

L: Is there a piece from the collection that you would wear every day?

C: Absolutely! The first thing on my list would be the crystal smiley face leather bracelet. That bracelet was screaming my name. It’s totally ME! And it’s comfortable enough for me to have on all the time, on and off stage.

Smiley Bracelet, Flower Cuff, Black Diamond Studs

L: Which are your favorite pieces from this collection?

C: That’s a really tough one! I LOVE everything I chose, but I absolutely ADORE the smiley collection, especially the bracelet… I fell in love with it the second I saw it! It has a rock feel due to the leather, but still remains feminine.The whole collection is so cute and just makes me smile . Plus, all the pieces are very wearable both on and off stage.

Smokey Quartz ring (pictured right) – This ring really feels like an antique, I find it has lots of character, and really makes a statement. I love the craftsmanship and design, and especially the dark color. This is great when I don’t want too much glitter but still want to feel like a rock star.  : )

Stainless Steel Flower bracelet –  Daisies have always been my favorite flower, so I had to have this bracelet in the collection! This piece is just plain fun. It’s bright, colorful and has a great feel… can you say “groovy baby”?  : )

Black diamond studs – When it comes to earrings, I tend to keep it really simple. These studs are perfect for me – clean and straight to the point. I love the fact that black goes with everything, whether chic or casual. Like the Smokey ring, when I don’t feel like shining, these make a subtle and classy statement. And let’s not forget ladies, they’re still diamonds.
