Spotted: Bold Crystal Jewelry on Gossip Girl

I have no shame in admitting I’m a sucker for watching Gossip Girl. It’s dramatic, funny, sexy and fashionable. Every character on the show has a top-notch wardrobe full of high-end designers. It’s incredibly fun to see what new outfits will appear in every scene. Main characters Serena and Blaire are the focus of the show played by Black Lively and Leighton Meester but Serena’s mother Lily often steals the spotlight with her classy yet sexy fashion sense. I recently came across this photo of the stars on the set of the show and couldn’t help but drool when I saw Lily’s necklace.

Lily is played by Kelly Rutherford who I find has a very similar style on and off screen. Her necklace is draped with large clear crystals that kind of look like rocks. If you want to get a similar look, Ice has a very similar style crystal bracelet (pictured right) from our SNO of Sweden Collection.  It’s a large statement piece that will go with many outfits since the crystal chips are clear.

Would you wear large clear statement pieces like these?

Black Swarovski Bracelets

When I got a sneak peak of this black Swarovski crystal bracelet a couple of months ago I knew I had to have it. I anxiously waited for it to come in stock and now the time has come! I recently started adding several black bracelets to my expanding jewelry collection. It started with a black crystal bracelet from Ice, then I got the black glass bead SNO of Sweden bracelet.

I noticed several of Hollywood’s starlets donning black bracelets such as the lovely Amanda Seyfried so I must be on to something. This new bracelet is another black glass bead bracelet but this one has a cluster of white Swarovski crystals. It is SPARKLY! As is the other black bracelets I recently got.

What do you think of black jewelry? Do you have any?

Btw, if you’re not crazy about black jewelry, the Swarovski crystal bracelet I mentioned above is also available with purple glass beads.

Ice and SNO

I cannot contain my excitement for our latest collection of jewelry at Ice… SNÖ of Sweden! I LOVE every piece in this collection and I’m betting that most of you will find something you like too. This line is PERFECT for Fall and with a name like SNÖ how can it not be perfect for Winter too.

It’s designer is Lena Jonsson Näslund who had a vision of making affordable, but unique jewelry that could be worn by women of all ages and backgrounds, using materials provided by nature. Having grown up, surrounded by the breathtaking scenery of northern Sweden, Lena says that being part of nature, the people around her and life itself are her main source of inspiration. Snö is the Swedish word for snow and celebrates the pure, white and crystal clear materials of the north.

The pieces found at Ice use semi-precious stones such as quartz, onyx, clear rock crystal, smoked crystals and seashell pearls in a variety of natural colors and shapes. We have over 20 pieces in the SNÖ of Sweden Collection but here are a couple of my favorites I wanted to share with you.

Seashell Pearl Silver Plated Multifunctional Necklace: As I’ve mentioned, I love long necklaces. These necklaces are gorgeous but what appeals to me even more is that they are multi-functional. You can take them apart to make shorter necklaces or bracelets. Love that! Almost all the SNÖ necklaces can be wrapped around twice for a layered look or have detachable parts.

Talk about a statement piece! This Smokey Quartz bracelet (pictured right) is big, bold and beautiful featuring a stylish wooden clasp. You can wear the bracelet with the clasp showing in the front or in the inside of your wrist for two different looks. Don’t you just love how versatile these pieces are?
